24th April, 2015 Fabulous coincidence! Appearing on BBC Radio Northampton and launching my book - Pitchforks & Pina Coladas - on the same day! Lucky me :-). Click the player below to catch it again... GK’s Peek at Drivetime's Week – 24/04/2015 It’s hard not to mention it… yes… The Election! For won’t be too long till we make our selection Yellow, red, green, purple or blue Have you yet decided? What colour are you? Though has to be said, ‘tis a worry of note The odd mix of colours may mean some don’t vote But Cedar Road School has ensured all its pupils Know voting’s important – a question of scruples For taking no notice of how things are run’s Like being traffic news deaf with probs on the M1 Which brings us quite neatly to news in our shire Like how childrens’ homes need to pull their socks higher! The home birthing unit’s been going five years And the air amb’lance needs lots more volunteers Our shoemakers fear the loss of their skills So… ‘tis sad that a BOGOF’s what’s stirs thrills and spills And who cares that Tescos have made a huge loss? When tool wielding burglars are what’s made folk cross Still… who knew that golf had lost its attraction? And more people suffer allergic reactions? Few knew, I say, till we’d heard on Rob’s show For Drivetime’s the programme to stay in the know Yes… Chris Egerton interviewed Ed Miliband And a cleaner in Kett’ring’s won one hundred grand! Hats off to Melissa who’s won an award Whilst Kids’ Uni graduates lobbed mortar boards Plus a Towcester headmaster has done a fab job Unlike a poor chippy who didn’t serve Rob Hmmm…. food banks are battling to help some folk eat And a huge bloomin’ sink hole’s collapsed in Earl Street Still… Hooray! Say Saints fans – ‘cos he’s back, Courtney Lawes And, Oye! Says Mick, our tie-die St George Ooooooh… and talking of ties, and folk in smart suits In truth what’s the hope this election bears fruits? For ‘tis said pigs must fly before sense is found With small parties claiming quite strange common ground So, could this suffice instead as a factor That a parrot cried ‘Fire!’… And a dog drove a tractor?!
