Weeks of debate!

So many things of interest in the news at the moment. I am glad Mrs May is not getting all her own way in the lead up to the election. The tax levied on us ancients feels wrong if we start to suffer some dementia sometime in the future after a lifetime of paying in to the system.
The move of the Royal Bank of Scotland share holders also directly affects me...after my first husband took all his bonuses in bank shares in the knowledge that they would bring in much needed extra income in our old age. They haven't obviously!
Listening to Trumps speech exhorting Muslim countries to expel the hatred that inspires so many ghastly acts throughout the world cheered me up no end...and that's a first!
Brexit anxieties were not helped yesterday listening to Boris Johnson talking about it!
The general election is not going all the Torys way but it's clear that unless a miracle happens it's going to be business as usual. The programs I've watched so far have not given me much to cheer about...especially the one last week avoided by both May and Corbyn!
Debate is needed prior to an election and the party leaders who did turn up were very good...especially I thought Caroline Lucas!
May seems intent on not being asked difficult questions which can't do her any good surely?
If you really believe in what you are proposing why refuse to debate them?
We still have weeks of this. It can only get better!

  1. I think the first lesson 'baby' party leaders learn is how to avoid answering a direct question. The side-stepping and evasion tactics employed by all the current protagonists is a wonder to behold.
    It would be nice to be able to believe that some of the professed aims when in power of the two main opponents, could have some basis in reality. But, I doubt it.
    My inner cynic is rapidly becoming my outer cynic, and as for Trump's 'miraculous' turn-around, I fear this is merely a damage limitation exercise.
    Please Lord, prove me wrong.
