Just Because…

Things have changed, someone once sang, and it certainly seems that Seasons can change.  You’ll recall that the big flights to Rwanda scheme was definitely going to happen in Spring, although we were told just recently that there are “many definitions of Spring” (thanks Laura Trott).  And, in a very newspeak way, it turns out that she was quite right: July – which many people will recall includes the start of the school Summer holidays – is now actually Spring.  Up is down, black is white, and it is possible to make something true for all time through legislation.  On the plus side we can all look forward to an era of cheap space travel when the government declares that the law of gravity no longer applies.

This is perhaps the saddest example of a meltdown government, no real intention of doing anything positive with their remaining months in power their aim is just to stir dissension, scorch the earth for the next party in power, and build their own careers in the media once they finally allow the country to have a say in its governance.  You’ll recall how they mocked Gordon Brown for having no mandate, how shallow that looks with Truss, Sunak and, who knows?, after the May elections maybe just time for one more person to be PM before the general election. Why not, surely everyone deserves to have a go for a bit.

Do we really want to wait that long?  Would it not be better to hear, the next time there is a podium in Downing Street, “I’m going, I’m going, I’m gone“?

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?

Nice to see courage of convictions in here. So often, in music magazines, principles are thrown out of the window, often by the editor. Good stuff.
