Right. Nearly there. Don’t expect coherence.

Greatest fear: flat in Edinburgh won’t have a bath.

Greatest wish: that someone would massage my back. Preferably by standing on it kalaripayattu style:

interesting choice of music.

So today I will perform the Little Political Speech Opera to an invited audience at Plymouth University. It will be nice to finally have an audience for the audience participation.

I’d like to be able to add some new lines. ‘Thuggery, pure and simple’ for instance. But don’t want to give Mark an aneurysm. Anyway the live twitter feed does it for me.

I’ve got to go record the news for the opening…

Spend and spend and borrow and borrow and tax and tax ….

    I wish I could be in Edinburgh to see you.
    Yeah, the big man with big ideas for the big society all I can think is that it has taken a kind of lame half- soaked teenage version of Bronx gangs mangling British high streets and, hell knows, today, killing their own neighbours, for everyone to wake up to the fact that the Emperor ain’t got no clothes.
    Very very best Hannah

  2. Thanks Julie.
    Yes, it will be interesting to see how people/other politicians respond to Cameron pinning it on kids (criminals) and benefit seekers, blaming parenting and bringing it all back to ‘responsibility’ and ‘the big society’. It’s definitely not ‘pure and simple’….
