Mornin', Blogger. I take it from the fact that you're chatting with me that there's nothing bringing you creative juices to boil this am?
Good morning, Blog! Mornin'! What shall we write about today? Don't ask me! You're the fuckin' 'creative'! I'm just the medium by which you make your profoundness accessible to lesser mortals.

Sincerely Peter A Bell If you find these articles interesting please consider a small donation to help support this site … Continue reading Thank you!
I was encouraged in my hopes of Joanna Cherry when I read that she was urging the SNP to accept that the anti-Brexit campaign was over and lost.
