Right so, SPOILERS for tonight's episode (The Lie of the Land). Quite probably only amusing for the Brits out there (knowledge of British politics - Corbyn specifically - required).

Well, tonight Miss M (eldest daughter) watched the show with me.

When it finished, we had a chat & I told her about the previous episode having featured Donald Trump, Kim Jong Un & Jeremy Corbyn in the script stage instead of the army captains...

And then she pointed out, that OBVIOUSLY they couldn't have done that in the episode itself, as Corbyn's motive would have been pure & then HE would have been the link!!

Which then conjured up images of Corbyn in Bill's stead, all calm & resigned & "Now Doctor, I have had a good life. I have always tried to do what's best, serving my country, this is a good way to go..."

And THEN the screens/transmittor would be flooded with images of manhole covers - and then we couldn't breathe for quite a while.

I AM SO SORRY FOR INFLICTING THIS ON YOU. Proper meta coming, honest. *g*

It's a line graph which shows Labour at a near vertical climb in popularity and the Tories in a near vertical crash.

I mean, there's no hope they can totally overcome the remaining gap in the next few days, but it's still amazing. A few weeks ago, everyone was talking about how Labour was set for an historical thrashing.

The sad thing is (and I speak as a retired person) that we cannot afford free social care for the elderly. The burden on young taxpayers is simply too great.

I'd rather risk losing my house and have better education for the next generation and the working generation to be able to afford to buy a house of their own.
