Countdown to Christmas. Day 11 - What is it about Kilburn?
One of the key issues with politics is this sort of odd local government speak notion of 'place'.
It's a bit New Labour speak and a bit jargonistic but living here in kilburn I am beginning to understand what it might mean for me.
In short, for me, it about knowing, liking and understanding an area. it draws on soundbites like 'a place with no history has no future'.
Here in Kilburn it for me is epitomised by the Sir Colin Campbell pub.
It's a great irish tradition and a superb real old fashioned boozer - fun staff - good prices - lovely atmosphere and live music...
It's top, it's Kilburn :-)
