We finally got some snow today. The first snow of the year and winter. It was beautiful but will probably be all gone by tomorrow. Daniel told me that he and his friends are going to form a band. Daniel has been learning the guitar for nearly a year and he's got a friend who's… Continue reading Snow and Brexit chaos

Take me to your leader
It's hard not to feel a bit of schadenfreude about the situation Theresa May has created for herself. When she first became prime minister about one year ago I was cautiously hopeful. I didn't know anything about her and it was a relief just to have someone in charge because for a short period we… Continue reading Take me to your leader
Strong and stable my arse
Theresa May's snap election that wasn't meant to happen turned out to be a bit of a disaster for her. She was handed a majority on a silver platter and somehow managed to squander it all on horse manure. Now she's carrying on as though nothing happened. It's a bit like that Monty Python sketch… Continue reading Strong and stable my arse
Who is the bigger nincompoop?
Theresa May and Labour's Diane Abbott seem to be competing for the biggest nincompoop award in this election campaign. I think Diane Abbott is slightly more incompetent than Theresa May and even worse is that she's the shadow home secretary during a campaign with two terrorist attacks. The home secretary is the person responsible for… Continue reading Who is the bigger nincompoop?
John Crace from The Guardian calls Theresa May the Maybot. I think it's very apt because she has come across as stilted and robotic in this election campaign, repeating memes and displaying a lack of independent thought and critical thinking. I realised yesterday what I am particularly fearful of with Theresa May and that is… Continue reading The Maybot
I'll likely be voting for Labour or SNP on Thursday. I haven't yet decided which party but I'm leaning towards Labour because I really like Jeremy Corbyn and I want him to be Prime Minister. He rides a bike, he's vegetarian, and he wears his mother's knitted jumpers. What more could you want from a… Continue reading Liar, Liar!
“Does that elephant need its face more than some guy in Asia needs a tusk on his desk?”
Theresa May plans to lift the ban on ivory trading. Why would anyone want to do that? The reason is because people who sell antiques are required to prove that any ivory in their products was worked before 1947 and this is apparently difficult and expensive to do. She is putting what is a minor inconvenience for antique dealers… Continue reading “Does that elephant need its face more than some guy in Asia needs a tusk on his desk?”
It may not be mayhem in the UK, not yet anyway, but I'm becoming increasingly alarmed by Theresa May. She started off with grand statements about equality and working for everyone but I've seen nothing encouraging since then and more cause for concern than anything else. One example was Amanda Rudd's recent statement about having British firms declare… Continue reading Theresa Mayhem
