This week : a haircut, some gyms & swims , and a Manifesto !


A Todmorden Bookshop

 

Audio: Jerry Jeff Walker : Texas 1991 

As I have already said here , I am no longer in The Labour Party . 

I am , currently, much taken with the new Northern Independence Party .

 How they  pan out is unclear. It's very early days. 

They only have 5 candidates standing in the coming local elections ,plus Thelma Walker the former Labour MP for Colne Valley, who is standing for them in the Hartlepool by-election .( who will be lucky not to lose her deposit)

They are (like me) Corbyn Refugees .Socialists. I can't fault their logic. I hope they establish themselves and ( at the very least) give the Starmeristas a sharp nudge and stand candidates in every Northen seat ( they even talking of standing a candidate in Holborn , Starmer's seat)

Anyway ,its a long-term thing .Much will change before 2024 

They pubished their Manifesto this week.Read it  here .Personally, I can find no fault here https://www.freethenorth.co.uk/ourfuture

Newcastle ,during the minute silence for Prince Philip.
