The political events of the past few days have been something of a watershed, and we can only hope that our local leaders will heed the message sent out by voters, and not try to spoon out the mixture as before to our ailing Boston.It may be a vain hope, with bleak threats such as the possibility of near round-the-clock drinking in the Assembly Rooms lurking just around the corner for starters.
But on a brighter note, we hear that a deal may have been done to rid Boston of the burden of the Princess Royal Sports Arena – although that was tried before and failed.
Whatever, it’s appropriate at this point to recognise another watershed of a more personal nature.
For some time now, the production of this blog has become less of a pleasure and more of a burden.
The reasons are purely related to the health of the author, who has decided that such a memorable political junction in the life of the town is an appropriate time to call it a day.
Over the past seven years, we have made quite a number of friends via Boston Eye – although we are sure that they are greatly outnumbered by our enemies.
To those friends we say thanks.
We would also like to express our gratitude to the Boston Bypass Independents, without whose glittering incompetence, this blog would have foundered long ago.
And whilst we figured that they would be a hard act to follow, we didn’t bargain on the Conservative group which took their place, and who – against the odds – succeeded in being even more selfish, incompetent, self-serving and contemptuous of the people who elected them than did their predecessors.
Surely, politics wasn’t meant to be like this.
Anyway, now it’s some other commentator’s problem.
