Happy Friday! I’m really looking forward to the weekend, I’ll be spending quite a bit of time on the plot and at the allotment site for the workday. Time I don’t spend at the allotments will be spent doing housework and sowing some more seeds for the allotment. In a couple of months time, everything will be about the plot but for now, it’s more about planning for that time, the living room looks like a greenhouse!
Don’t blame Corbyn for the sins of Blair, Brown and New Labour. I didn’t vote Labour after Iraq until the last election, when I held my nose and voted for them in the hope of getting the Tories out, that clearly didn’t work, but Ken Loach basically says most of what I think about the current state of the PLP.
It was their Labour party, not Corbyn’s, that lost Scotland, lost two elections and has seen Labour’s vote shrink inexorably. Yet they retain a sense of entitlement to lead. They have tolerated or endorsed the erosion of the welfare state, the dereliction of the old industrial areas, public services cut back and privatised, and the illegal war that caused a million or more deaths and terrorised and destabilised Iraq and its neighbours. If Corbyn can be removed, it will be business as usual, with scant difference between Labour and the Tories.
Lemon juice in bottles shaped like lemons. I hadn’t thought about it before, but this is interesting.
The Good Housekeeping Housework Checklist. I have the daily and most of the weekly tasks in hand, not so great at the longer term stuff.
