Cor Blimey, it's Friday again - how time flies! I have had quite a good week, which is more than can be said for Gordon Brown, and Zimbabwe. Poor old Golden must be feeling very down, having lost yet another by-election in such a resounding way. Fifth behind the Greens and the Liberals just about says it all. When will the man realize that we just don't want to play (or work) with him. I do wonder if he was the sort of playground bully who forced the other children to play his games by bribing them with sweets. That's what he's doing now of course. Apparently, he has to make concessions on every Parliamentary vote these days to get anything through. Give it up, Golden, and take your sorry arse back to Scotland (if you can remember the way).
Zimbabwe is, of course, quite another kettle of fish. That monstrous Mugabe probably feels that he has won, simply because he has terrified everyone into either withdrawing or voting for him. I don't know why someone doesn't just do away with him. That sounds awful I know, and it's not something I would normally even think of. But those poor people are being subjected to dreadful violence; I heard this morning that children are turning up at clinics and hospitals with bones broken by Mugabe supporters to deter their parents from voting the "wrong" way! It's obscene that such violent intimidation should go unchecked. There are "Rape Camps" too, for the wives and daughters of men who have committed the sin of voting for the opposition. (The opposition leader, Morgan Tsvangirai, has even advised his followers to vote for Mugabe because of the threatened, and actual, violence.) Does anyone seriously want such a monster to continue to live and perpetrate these obscenities against his own people? He'll go to Hell, that's for sure. And the sooner the better, as far as I'm concerned.
I'm searching for someone called "Soo's Stuff". I happened across her a couple of days ago, and started to read her Blog, only to discover that she had my Blog on her "playlist". The trouble was, I was called away from my keyboard before I had a chance to save her details or read all her posts. Daft as I am, I just scribbled down "Soo's Stuff" and didn't get the full blogger address. And now I can't locate her. It's so maddening. I spent an hour last night trying to track her down, but, the short-term memory being what it is, I couldn't retrace my steps. Please can anyone out there help?
Before I go, I must tell you about Son's trip to Cannes. Apparently it was great and the weather was too. I've seen the photos (on his Facebook) and the video clips of him jumping off a yacht into gorgeous blue sea and dee-jaying at one of the official events (not at the same time, obviously). When I spoke to him yesterday, he was still yawning! I asked if he was going to Glastonbury this weekend, "No" he said "we're going to another Festival" - this one is near Oxford. Then next weekend one of his friends from Uni has a two-day Garden Party to celebrate her Birthday. It's one long social round, it seems, with a bit of work sandwiched inbetween. I'm hoping to get to see him soon, but I won't hold my breath for a free weekend..
