The League of Innocent Gentleman


The most newsworthy part of this Adver story is that Councillor Nick Burns-Howell does not know what a 'gentleman's club' is.

Swindon Conservatives should do a whip-round and buy Councillor Nick a voucher for Christmas.

Anyone for a Cheeky Justin?



Justin Tomlinson got a tour of the new Nandos at the Orbital.

Plenty of quotes about the economic and leisure benefits for residents of the area, but precious little (make that zero) on the nutritional value of a cheeky Nandos. Especially in comparison to other fast-food choices.

Did he go for a good runabout afterwards?

Noddy Promotion in Toyland


Swindoncentric nearly spat out it's coffee on hearing that Councillor Dale Heenan is now cabinet member for the town centre and regeneration.

Councillor Foley's move is slightly less interesting, apart from her quitting two positions before.

Maybe Dale can do a jumble sale to raise money for regenerating the town centre, a few quid will get Kimmerfields built, I'm sure.

I mean, look at the Sim City that is Liden after his the golden touch!

Lets hope he can spell the name of the town.
