the dogs of Bore

The rest of the week has been the usual round of casework, meetings and paperwork.
On Wednesday pm we had a bit of a revolt by residents from Egghill. For several years the Egghill Development Group have met at the Hollymoor Centre. Since Bournville College took the site over they have announced that they will no longer let out rooms for evening meetings. It was decided that in future the meetings would be held at Frankley High School. The residents of Egghill have a long held belief that Frankley is in the Dark Zone and refused to go there. Their view of Frankley is way out of date but to be fair they made their views clear, dug their heels in and have got their own way. "People Power". The meetings will now be held in a local school.
On Friday Keith went to the launch of the new Central Library. This went really well and received a lot of support. We will have to see if Labour keep up their "dog in a manger" attitude but I suspect they will be unable to resist the temptation.
P.S. Does anyone know what "dog in a manger" means?
