Good morning Hosta
Yes, that's how the our parliamentary democracy works - however as I've said Cameron was either ignorant, disingenuous or careless - I can understand that there are parts of the electorate who didn't understand it - as far as I can see there is very little education on the subject in schools nowadays. But the discovery that there are Members of Parliament and political journalists who don't understand the processes of our democracy is frightening. Added to that, a candidate for the leadership of a party which has pretensions to be a possible HM Opposition in the next few years, has called for the High Court Judges to be 'brought under democratic control'! That way lies fascism!!!
Pdoc - the world has been in a mess before and it will be in a mess again. It says something for the human spirit that so many of us expect things to improve along the way - a two steps forward and one step back sort of thing. Sometimes it seems the other way around doesn't it. At times like these it's important for us to focus on the little things that can make such a difference - without them, the big things don't matter.
But that's enough of that for now
I have a fish pie to make - whether or not I'm going to go out there in this 'orrid weather and pot up some bulbs and bubble-wrap the little greenhouse remains to be seen.
