I could not let today go by without a comment. UK is to leave the EU, possibly leaving Scotland behind still in it. And who are the leading lights who led us to this?
Nigel Farage: - "Farage had unsuccessfully contested British parliamentary elections for
UKIP five times, both before and after his election as an MEP in 1999." (Wiki) So desperate, to 'get in' he joined the organisation he despises.
Niel Hamilton - "After becoming involved in a political scandal known as the cash-for-questions affair, Hamilton was defeated in the 1997 General Election, and left politics." (Wiki) Well, no he didn't. He now sits in the Welsh Assembly for UKIP
Boris Johnson - "Born in New York City to upper middle-class English parents, Johnson was educated at the European School of Brussels, Ashdown House School, and Eton College." (Wiki) A true Brit who truly knows what is best for the common man.
Micheal Gove - Micheal seems to have difficulty understanding the parliamentary expenses claims form. "Over a five-month period between December 2005 and April 2006, Michael
Gove claimed more than £7,000 on a house bought with his wife Sarah Vine, a journalist, in 2002. Around a third of the money was spent at OKA, an upmarket interior design company established by Viscountess Astor, PM David Cameron’s mother-in-law. Shortly afterwards he reportedly 'flipped' his designated second home, a property for which he claimed around £13,000 to cover stamp duty. Gove also claimed for a cot mattress, despite children's items being banned under updated Commons Rules......................While he was moving between homes, on one occasion he stayed at the Pennyhill Park Hotel and Spa following a constituency engagement, charging the taxpayer more than £500 per night's stay."

Can this be authentic? It is too prescient, is that the right word? If so many people, who had the power to change things, saw WWII coming five years before the shooting started why didn't they stop it? Will human kind ever evolve beyond the tribal mindset? It surely needs to, to stave off extinction.

Chris passed away yesterday, 2nd June. Just 14 months ago we four were living it up in Malaysia's Cameron Highlands. This is a republished post from that trip.
Rest in Peace, my old Friend.
