Sheep and true democracy.

A great argument for leaving the EU, from someone who lives where such decisions matter, and are not just liberal Europhile niceties.

Looking back in sadness

It is fair to say I will never be described as saintly; I have never mastered piety, my good works, such as they have been, are mundane, and  I too easily slip into my vices. I imagine, that the majority of us, I am better described as a sinner than as a saint. However, over the past year and a half I have developed a saintly aspect, rather small but perfectly formed, I have developed the patience of a saint and I have needed it.

When I say ‘soon’, I mean in astronomy terms, like 200,000 years or something. However far in the future, it will all be gone.

      Best wishes, Pete.
