I do not usually write about my so called political opponents on my blog but in the case of Councillor Bob Beauchamp, Con (Erdington Ward) I will make an exception on this occasion.
Bob is I am informed is attending a Queens garden party today. Knowing Bob (he lives in the Oscott Ward,) is a fellow member of the Planning Committee and has an amazing knowledge about just about everything connected with buildings, he will know doubt give the Queen a potted history of Buckingham Palace. He will also probably be offering planning advice to her about any little extensions needed.
One thing I do know is Bob will enjoy the day and deserves the invite.
