In A Dream You Saw A Way To Survive And You Were Full Of Joy.



My search for cleverness continues..........
Me & Cath went into Manchester's Whitworth Gallery to see an exhibition called   In A Dream You Saw A Way To Survive And You Were Full Of Joy
To be honest, I knew little about it,but I just loved the title! It was an electic mix of curated  stuff.
I mean,Andy Warhol and Eric Gill in the same space !

The first Gill sculpture I,ve ever seen...it was the highlight for me.Brilliant.
I'm still not a big fan of The Whitworth.It brands itself as an International Gallery.Very well healed visitors....it could just as easily be in London or New York. I get no feel of Northernness or Manchesterness.Frankly ,it feels a bit up itself!
 All those comforable people coming to look at photos of homeless street sleepers, while outside the beggars of Manchester seem to multiply each time i visit the city.

13th August : Happy Valley Pride.

https://zimnoch.smugmug.com/Dropbox/Happy-Valley-Pride-13th-August/
So. I went into Hebden Bridge this afternoon.
Taking a look at Hebden Bridge's first ever Pride.
Really nice feeling around the town.
 Hebden has been a Gay friendly place for many years.I'm surprised this hasnt happened before now.......
I was thinking of David Cameron today. The only "brave " thing he ever did was to support Gay Rights legislation.
I guess he must have  some rich gay friends?, Because he never did fuck all for gay disabled people:gay midwives:the  gays homeless:gay public service workers:gay ambulance drivers:gay lorry drivers:gay youth;gay unemployed:etc etc.....

#KeepCorbyn :Manchester.


It's going to be a hard fight "for the soul of the Labour Party".
If we are going to put our faith in Chilcot & the 'big majority in the last Labour Leadership election ',we are fucked.
  it will be different this time..... I cannot believe Chilcot is going to deliver any knock-out blow to Blair ( establishment reports never do). yougov reports that currently ,its 50/50 for Jeremy Corbyn among Labour members.Given the media this week, that is hardly surprising .
Plus ,expect all sorts of 'dirty tricks' from Blair & co.Along the way ....( "60,000 new members this week"...they wouldn't be reporting this if it was 'bad'news would they ...?)
 It is going to be a tough fight.But (whatever the result) Socialism Maintains.
