    Newsletter/Blog  [November 2017]

    I began this Newsletter way back in the Spring. I’ve been distracted as well as lazy but I decided to continue as best I could. It also reveals my position on many of the surprises and horrors of this year as the opening paragraphs were written before many of them happened! I trust this makes sense?  Also there are a few more breaks in the writing of this Blog. Sorry.]

    Winter 2016/17

     It has been a year since I last attempted a Newsletter/Blog. 2016 has been a whirlwind of a year, with mindblowing and catastrophic events both in this country and elsewhere. The EU Referendum, the misinformation that that displayed – on all sides – then the vote LEAVE triumphant. From the destruction of David Camaron’s career – he just dissolved into the ether, a bit like the Wicked Witch of the West. [The Wizard of Oz, remember that?] to the harassment of Jeremy Corbyn and the extraordinary attacks on him as leader by other Parliamentary Labour Party members. A challenge to him for the Leadership! He won with an increased majority!

    Newsletter/Blog     -     Spring 2015

    The General Election. Our one opportunity to engage in the democratic process, Yes, we have a ‘gagging’ law that inhibits our opportunities to challenge power. Those organisations that have helped to engage us during the previous 5 years are now severely inhibited in their ability to continue with this. We’re more or less on our own. Unless we’re active within a Union where our efforts might help in determining where our Union stands on issues and which Party best represents us!
