Overheard at the counter at Tilleys today:
” … if it goes into double digits, Mount Ainslie will be cleared and then …” (then the background noise got too loud to hear any more)
The speaker was a man about 5’9″, fairly thin, swarthy, curly greying dark hair cropped short, wearing a cheap pinstriped suit (or a suit he paid too much for).
His companion was a young woman, looked like his secretary perhaps, wearing a cinched-in grey cardigan and with blond tips in her hair.
I didn’t hear any more. Any clues? Something to do with the NCA’s demise? Is Mt Ainslie’s protection from development under threat? What could ‘double digits’ refer to? Election talk?
