It’s been a strange old week dear reader, almost biblical with its turn of events, and although here in the People’s Republic of Liverpool we’re long used to misrepresentation from national media, it sadly doesn’t make it any easier to bear. A decent man who was a genuine challenge to the system gets betrayed by people he trusted on Thursday, gets crucified by the authorities shortly after… familiar? The resurrection bit of the story feels a long way away right now. In the meantime, actual racists are in government but hey, there’s a dead cat. Anyway, we ran a story sometime ago about this particular man’s good taste to have a Willy Vlautin book on his shelf. So JC – this one’s for you. Don’t skip out on us just yet – they can cut all the flowers, but they can’t stop the coming of spring. Take care everyone.
