Happy Friday! This week will go down as the week I completely failed at Friday Links, due to a combination of being really tired and really fed up with the news.
This doesn’t mean that there wasn’t any news just that I couldn’t read anything without being really cross especially where Maria Miller was concerned, just for the record, she resigned as a minister, she’s still an MP, she gets a tax free payment of £17,000 and only has to repay £4,000 ish of the £44,000 she fraudently claimed through expenses, she also gets to keep the £1.2 million she made from flipping her address and selling the house she claimed expenses on. That is not punishment. If I’d done that I’d have been sacked for gross misconduct and taken to court.
So this week’s links are short and sweet.
2) Following on from Dirtbag Anne of Green Gables, we have Dirtbag Little Women.
3) Sue Townsend died. If you grew up in the ’80’s in England you knew about Adrian Mole, I haven’t read all 7 of them, but I know I owned the first two.
