  • Well done for your scoop at the Thistle Tony! I could not imagine anybody refusing you admission. I don’t appear in any of the four pics but you can see my wife Olive in her red jacket. I was just behind her on her right but out of shot. Our other ward councillor Dawn Barnett attended the question and answer session at the Hove Town Hall where she was able to get her question in, regarding the drug problems in the City. Our other councillor Tony Janio can be seen in the four pics dressed in rather casual attire for which we threatened to have him evicted but he seems to have got away with it.
