Louise Baldock was a Labour Councillor in the city of Liverpool for two terms, 2006 - 2014. This was her award-winning blog, written mainly as a councillor about issues affecting Kensington and Fairfield ward, sometimes as a politician, and sometimes simply personal commentary. Although she thought she might rekindle the blog after May 2015, she has now changed her mind and leaves this as an archive and record.

Kensington Art Installation?
I have not yet had the pleasure of a proper look round the Liverpool Biennial Art Exhibits, I shall try to find some time for that this weekend.
However, in the meantime, Wendy and I spotted this special installation in Kensington which I shall call "A room with a view". Like all good art, it has become a real talking point.
Imagine, the gable wall has to come down, maybe it falls down, and you have to hire builders, order a skip, buy bricks, sort out the cement mixer, get scaffolding, and a protective fence, such a lot of work to do. I suppose it is easy to overlook the furniture splendidly displayed in each room. I don't envy the new tenants that will move in after the work is finished, it has been raining heavily in Liverpool for days. Those beds will be a little damp to say the least...!
