Wendy makes her maiden speech

Councillor Wendy Simon, my co-councillor in Kensington and Fairfield made history tonight.

Not only did she make her maiden speech - on a motion about social care for adults - but she also made a second speech to support my motion on dog wardens.

I bet nobody ever made two maiden speeches in one meeting before

She was great; poised, eloquent, thoughtful and measured in both.

I was so proud of her. She is already renowned as a councillor who most intently scrutinises policy in select committees. Now she will be free to pop up and interject and comment in debates in the chamber without the worry of getting the maiden speech out of the way.

Beware Liberal Democrats!
