Camden United, March 26th and Labour

I’m just back from the pub following a very productive and interesting Camden United Against Cuts meeting. The productive bits mostly involved plans for building for the 26th March march, leafleting etc. and having a coordinated day of leafleting on Saturday 19th  around Camden with the possibility of a little shindig afterwards.

Privatisation – have I been wrong to oppose it?

Don’t you just hate it when your apparently ideologically settled mind decides to make you think again about something? I do. Especially on a Sunday evening when I’m trying to write a song (which, frankly, never goes too well at the best of times so could do with as few distractions as possible. Oh, hello internet! I didn’t see you there…)

Digression’s a pain too.

Anyway, there I was, sitting having a strum, trying unsuccessfully to wax lyrical about the privatisation of public services, as one does, when my brain (dammit) flung this thought at me: Read more of this post
