Congratulations to Tory County Councillor Stephen Castle on getting a glowing profile article in Friday’s Echo. He’s bound to be a contender to be a future leader of the County Council, and this kind of article can only help:
Rugby, sailing, skiing, weight-training: Stephen Castle does them all with ease and relish.
But another, less obvious activity, is juggling.
The real art of being county councillor Castle is to juggle politics, business and family (he and Karen have two young sons) without ending up looking haggard rather than lean.
But whilst the article mentions Canvey(twice) , Thundersley, Hockley, Benfleet, London and Ipswich, it doesn’t mention Rayleigh , the place which he is elected to serve as a county councillor.
Surely an oversight?
Future leader? May be sooner than we thought, given the pantomime of resignations and sackings at County Hall.
