A Bad Day – Part I

We’re off looking for cacti today. It’s part of Julia’s plan for making the Mencap garden more sustainable.

As with all these plans, time will tell. If nothing else, we will have plenty of pictures of decorated pots and blog posts on mistakes made in cactus rearing.

We’ve already begged some cuttings and stuck them in soil to see what happens.

I’m thinking of trying to grow prickly pears, but I expect it will, like my tea plantation, end badly.

I went to bed last night knowing that the politicians in Westminster had made us a laughing stock to the rest of the world, but I’ve become accustomed to it over the years. I’m thinking about writing down my thoughts on politicians and Brexit so that I can look back on it as a significant political document in years to come. But then again…

Although I voted to remain, I have supported the exit process because that was the side that won, and that’s how democracy works.

It’s not a great system, as Churchill pointed out.

DemocracyΒ is the worst form of Government, except all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.

To be honest, the leader we need is Enver Hoxha. He had his faults, I admit, and may have ordered the murder of up to 25,000 people in pursuing his policies, but as long as two of the were Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg I think I’d forgive Theresa May for the other 24,998.

I suppose, after expressing admiration for a Communist and advocating the execution of politicians I’m going to end up on a list somewhere and will never be allowed into the USA.

Such is life.

    No fun when a country is going through political spasms. Boy, do I ever have first-hand knowledge of that. And cheer-up! I expect when it comes to being a laughing stock, the U.S. is in first place. Sigh. Sure wishing you across the pond all the best.

      I have found myself gradually turning anti-European as they have messed us about.

      We had a look at a lot of cacti today but ended up buying succulents as we don’t trust the group with anything spiney. πŸ™‚

    If talking bad about politicians gets you put on a list – then most of the US is on that list with you. Politicians bring their own form of stupidity to the table; they should expect us to talk about them.
