always the Fire Exit never the front door........

The U.K. Mainstream Media is just an organ of government.
It is not independent.
It's propaganda.
It's Pravda
.It has & is doing every dirty trick possible to scupper Labour's chances in the General Election here.
As an indication of how News is hostile here is a rare example of Labour being able to bite back. It shouldnt be this way.It shouldnt be remarable .Sadly it is...... BBC presenter Nick Robinson interviewing Labour's Shadow International Trade Secretary, Barry Gardiner .

I travelled over to  Royton,(nr Manchester) today to attend Joan 's funeral ( Hydn's wife).Held at St Pauls Church .A massive place ,which  was packed.
An impressive attendance for a beautiful lady.
Rest in Peace X
[Capo ]Martin took this photo of me near Royton Cricket Club, which hosted a meal for the mourners afterwards.
Thank You Martin for the lift to & from the Mills Hill railway station.
As I say, hundreds attended Joan's Mass.
 It lasted 80 minutes ( with a seperate cremation afterwards).
An Anglican/Cof E affair...yet  much "smells& bells"..more 'Catholic' than even recent roman catholic services I have attended  (remember I'm Polish,I know about such things!)
It's the first time ever I have taken the host &wine from a protestant vicar......very moving......
It was also good to meet up with 40 or 50  people i hadnt met up with for at least 12 months.
