April has been drip-drip-dripping its showers upon me. In the big streets of old London I have been so enjoying the rapid confusions of our mad island weather that I quite forget to yearn for warmer climes, a place where aching cold bones are eased, marijuana grows wild, and clothing is a decoration. I have a mickey-mouse umbrella, which isn’t to say it is a lesser piece of apparatus. It springs out and unfolds like a black rainflower, and as it joins the parade of eye-removing walking shelters, the mouse motif shines out boldly. I rather like the idea of hiding underneath a naive fascist emblem, it makes me feel insurgent and alive.

I have been so enjoying my study of lyrics over the past 3 weeks. One lyric has led to another so smoothly and inevitably, the texts criss-crossing and referring backwards and forwards like the rails coming into and exiting Clapham Junction, which for a long time held the honour of being the world’s busiest railway station, but which is now sadly superceded by a more modern and no-doubt safer Asian railway. I had more lyrics in mind, artists whose writing I wanted to quote and elucidate upon and use to cast a light or throw a moody shadow upon various episodes of my own track. But, something has occurred which means that I cannot continue in this theme, which as the observant among you will have deduced runs from mid-month to mid-month. I must cut it short and move swiftly on to the next destination.

All because of this man.

He is evil. He is clever. He is hungry. He wants to ruin my life, and those around me. More at this time I cannot say, except that I cannot stand by and watch a protest against the war from good-hearted Labour supporters, plus voter apathy, let the most vindictive man in politics become leader of this country. I know it’s going to be a close run thing. I cannot stand idly by. Every red socialist bloodcell in my body has been animated. We must act collectively, immediately, or we will lose everything we have gained.

So, Ladies, Gentlemen, and those of other genders and stranger persuasions, those of the night and those of the day, this month I will mostly be writing about politics.

    I can’t wait to hear what you have to say about politics. Only you could turn my agnostic political persuasion into something a bit more passionate. I await the challenge.

    Lori – are you trying to say we should be careful when we buy Tramadol.

    As for the evil Howard, just come out, take a deep breath and say it:
    ‘He is an evil fucking cunt.’

    Hey!

    I’ve just been spammed by this Lori Facist too. Although slightly pleased with my first spam post, I’m also in the mood for tracking down this Lori, and making her pay.

    I have a couple of IP addresses, and it’s gotta be one or the other. Before I unleash a whole world of pain, I thought it only prudent to check I have the right IP!

    Do you run any stats on your blog with which you might be able to look?

    Oh love your blog by the way. I thought I’d better say something about it, or this could be considered spam too!
