The Brown Inheritance 2

Brief correction to my earlier post. There is one other candidate in the Labour leadership race with a better voting record than the high-profile clones. It looks as if John McDonnell has also retained some principles and capacity for independent thought. To date, of course none of the on-message apparatchiks seem to be voting for him, either.

Via Chicken Yoghurt, again.

With an opposition wasting a good crisis like this and a coalition government probably unable and/or unwilling to protect Mr and Mrs Average from an uncaring world in continuing economic turmoil, I was beginning to think that nothing could save us from a future of crushing misery. Then I discovered that, with a microwave oven and few simple ingredients, you can make chocolate cake in a mug in five minutes and realised that life still had meaning, after all.
