"What A Load Of Rubbish" - Tony Clarke's Blog

Interesting piece by Councillor Tony Clarke on his Independent Blog. Specific interest to members of the association is the part titled "WHAT A LOAD OF OLD RUBBISH", commenting on Enterprise as represented at Monday's meeting.

Some of us told Mr Keiron King (Enterprise representative) that some of what they were doing wasn't working on Monday, but of course he told us otherwise.
