The despatch box

We're you thinking what the Conservatives were thinking? Did you believe the Lib Dems were the real alternative? Is Labour moving forward not back? This blog will focus on all things political. It will be irritating, agitating and maybe just maybe it will get you thinking.

Telegraph troubles

I made my first round trip to Blackpool today. Safely back home - though will be making another two hour trip up tomorrow afternoon.

I bumped into a pal who know works on the Telegraph who happened to pass on some advice about getting a taxi.

Apparently during Lib Dem conference he had tried for ages to get a taxi at 2:00am to take him back to his hotel. After finally succeeding he asked the driver why so many taxis for hire passed him by. The taxi driver replied - oh you'd have no problem if you were on a stag or hen weekend. They are always friendly and are that drunk they tp well. You on the otherhand look like a local - and they moan like hell about the prices!

So if you want a taxi in Blackpool it seems like you may have to wear a bright coloured wig, a kiss me quick hat or even worse and you'll have no problem!
