and wrap it up in a sailor’s knot



Even from her "grave", Theresa May continues to  poison the well!
I voted Labour & still support Jeremy Corbyn 100%
I have dear friends (usually Labour voters) who voted for both The Brexit Party and Liberal Democrats last Thursday.
 Be careful what you wish for my friends..............dont forget Europe's drift to the right (e.g. Le Penn).Ironically, given this was a 'European Election', nobody on the telly has once mentoned "Europe"!
Tribal?

"It's good of you to ask me sir To tell you how I spend my day..........." link:

This week ,I've been a little pissed off with the new BBC /HBO Drama "Gentleman Jack" starring Suranna Jones. Now, its (yet another) chance to see Halifax on TV. Great!
But is Anne Lister such a great "Icon"? She introduced coal mining to Shibden. She sent girls as young as 8 to work 10 hours shifts underground.
'Might be worth you reading this  report of how she abused the  poor people of Halifax.
Patience Kershaw reported "."sometimes the miners beat me if i am not fast enough:
I push carts for 11 miles a day. my life is terrible..." 

Not Very Sexy Halifax!
