That is where I live according to the gubbermunt. I call it East Cheshire but clearly that isn’t as dynamic as “Cheshire East“. “Go East!” as the Pet Shop Boys didn’t sing.
Anyway, through the door I get today the free-sheet detailing all the wonderful things Cheshire East does for me. There is some stuff on parenting which if I had kids I would feel abysmally patronized by and a speech by the council boss in which he promises the earth but clearly can’t be arsed to fix my road which increasingly resembles a fucking goat track in Mogadishu.
And there is also the council “cabinet” line-up. I almost bouked with merriment when I saw who held the environment portfolio…
Councillor Rod Menlove (Conservative and the upstanding member for Wilmslow East).
Here he is:
And this is about him.
Jebus fucking wept.
I mean he might be a real nice bloke but growing up called Rod Menlove carries a whole carousel of baggage. At least he wasn’t called “Roger”. His parents spared him that at least.
