The first thing you notice about Anne Chalk’s leaflet is that there is no mention of her fellow Independent Group ward councillors, and only a passing reference to the Joint Administration that she is part of. Anne clearly believes her best chance of remaining a councillor lie with her showing true independence.
I think it has been a broadly successful year for the Joint Administration, although I know that Anne has had her gripes. I confess to be a little puzzled by her strategy – we will not have to wait long to see whether it is successful.
This leaflet has no imprint.

Here is what I have tackled in 2014. I guess it is an odd assortment, which rather mirrors my undisciplined approach to reading.
Highlight? I would plump for The Second World War by Antony Beevor, with honourable mentions for A Greedy Man in a Hungry World and The God Delusion.
