Whilst Brexit appears to be basically achieved, it is still unclear as to the nature of Britain’s relationship with the EU following our exit.
But of course, this has been an extraordinary year for other reasons. The government’s, and in particular the Prime Minister’s handling of events of this year, have come under much critical scrutiny.
I don’t recall any government with such a majority ever falling from grace so quickly. It is difficult to see it recovering, even in the long term. For whilst there does not have to be another general election for four years, I think that the present paradigm of political parties have run their course.
In my opinion, the winner of the next election, which may not be that far away despite the governments majority, will likely be the leader of new party.
It’s been trick or treat all year, though no one’s been to my door. News is a petulant child running loose on the airwaves, heavy on the trick, sparse on the treat; scare stories to chill the hearts of the most level minded souls. My curtains remain open, I’m just willing them to knock, though I cannot pass out candy. This year have my TV, a year’s subscription if you life — so long as you take it away.
The mime artist confronts me, lithe and contorting, nuancing as best she can with her eyes. Masked and distanced, her gestures rage out loud and proud, yet I do not understand, I can’t even take her hand to console, to reassure; so now she’s rubbing her eyes with feigned clenched fists but the sorrow doesn’t translate; such sobbing falls on deaf ears, yet it screams to my soul: She’s in her world, I’m in mine, dimensions apart, both of us born again infants deprived of facial cues.

Even though everything in the world is slowly going back towards normalization, traveling is still not a possibility for a lot of people, either because of COVID-related travel limitations against Americans or self-cautious people who simply don’t want to put others and themselves at risk. But we are lucky that we’re living in the global […]
If I cry out for help — will you be there? We can’t know the thoughts of billions staring bleakly out of windows: I can only speak for myself. Watching the news wounds me, deeply, a psychological stab to my heart, yet still I follow it religiously: The enemy is out there, silent, unseen, invasive and surreptitious in ways I can’t imagine. So don’t let my cheery greeting fool you: I’m scared to death of what may come — for they’re making death my sole release.
Some say that seven is a lucky number… they must be joking! My seventh season at the helm of Yorkshire County Cricket Club promised so much but ultimately provided so little. We started both white-ball formats well only to finish bottom and when second or at least third place seemed an almost certainty in the […]
I rarely post on ingress charts other than the four cardinal Ingresses – the solstice and equinox events. Bot this is no ordinary year, by anyone’s standards and I’m there for watching the unfolding patterns that precede the Great Conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter in Aquarius, an event that will have repercussions not only until […]
It was a dark and gloomy day. A normal occurrence in this part of the world. However, it was a lot more cloudy than usual. To my surprise and ignorance, it started to rain hard. Like being hit with a garden hose, I was soaked. I had to find a store that sold ponchos and…
