"An idea no longer shrouded in mist, through wave or ether comes to me, like a star from high up in the skies, or a pearl from the bottom of the sea." - Victor Hugo (Les rayons et les ombres)
I am just sickened by the whole thing Gwil. It is quite true that the rich get rich and the poor get poorer - what can most of our Front Bench know about the cost of living as most of them are millionaires.
When I come to the UK some of the first things I notice is the large number of "pound shops", and the shabbiness of a lot of the town centers, with many shops boarded up, and amount of litter . . . and in fact a friend of mine returning from a visit to London remarked, without any prompting from me, on the gulf between the rich and the poor. I have the impression that Britain is following the US and the middle class is under threat.

True. Do you think a good person must necessarily be honest?
Honesty means no bullshit. To be an honest politician is not easy (maybe it's impossible - although Jimmy Carter, Nelson Mandela and Gandhi managed it. It's because you have to serve 3 masters: lobbyists, yourself, your party, the electorate. The electorate being last in the list.
. . . that's to say 4 masters.
John Major also was an honest man.
Funny yes, I go along with the weaver of grass.
Hello Bob. I'm a sucker for these Keep Calm slogans, even if some of them are corny.
