Gordon Brown is coming to Cheltenham tomorrow

We haven’t had many visits from cabinet ministers since May 1997. Before that the odd Tory one (some very odd) would turn up in the hope of drumming up enough votes to get the seat back from the Lib Dems.

But we do get quite a lot of politicians and ex-politician at the Times Literature Festival which starts again today. All of them have one major objective viz. sell some books. I’ve got a bit fed up with the festival talks; even though some of them are quite good it’s a bit odd being charged ten quid to listen to an advertisement.

Still the festival brings lots of jolly people to our little town. And this weekend the French Market is here as well, how lovely!
