Immoral

My hatred of the Lib Dems, goes back thirty-five years and it’s based on experience. They do not have a principle that isn’t for sale and, as they proved in 2010, they would drop their knickers for the prospect of a ministerial car turning up st the door every morning. Nothing about them is real or unequivocal, not even Jo Swinson’s accent.

So, when they voted today to ignore the result of 2016 and revoke Brexit, you can be sure that they had no thought of what’s right for you and me, but only what they perceive to be best for them.

I don’t like to involve myself in another country’s politics but Trump is hard to ignore. All that I will say is that he has his distractors and his supporters; in my extended family, there are both.

Ordure

Last night, awaiting the start of Match of the Day, I was treated to trailers for a BBCiii series, Heartbreak Holiday.

It gave me a warm feeling to know that from next year my household will have to fork out a disproportionate amount of its net income to pay for utter shite like that.

Going through my music library this morning, on the big sound, I came upon one I don’t play too often because I don’t want to endanger my love for it.

‘The Sun’s Coming Over the Hill’ by Karine Polwart.

I reckon it’s the best modern song ever written. Honest.

David Cameron: Johnson and Gove acted ‘appallingly’ during Brexit campaign

You made the mess, then ran away leaving others with an impossible job. Chicken, chicken chicken, looking to deflect the blame on to former colleagues and friends.

Please, people, whatever you think of Boris, don’t buy Cameron’s snivelling book.

Recall Parliament? God forbid. In our household we are enjoying being able to watch telly news free of the boorish, ill-mannered shambles that our House of Commons has become. We don’t want them back.
