Suddenly it feels like winter
It's cold outside now! I have just been to deliver a get well card to a friend and then, via a roundabout way through some woods (wooo! spooky in the twilight!) to the post office where I posted two letters.

Well, one was just returning a form about changing our gas payments to a cheaper deal but the other was an actual letter. I rarely write letters these days. So rarely, in fact, that I've only just used up the stamps I had left over from sending last Christmas's cards.

The letter was to my MP to express my views about the current lack of democracy and the attempt by the right-wing tabloids to run the country by mob rule. As an unrepentant remoaner (as the Brexiteers call those of us who voted remain and who won't simply roll over and give up without a fight), I might, reluctantly, agree that the Leave vote won. But the margin was so small and there had been so many lies told, that I don't agree that it gives Theresa May carte blanche to do what she likes without allowing Parliament a say in the matter.

I wouldn't mind, but leaving the EU won't actually solve the problems that caused people to vote Leave as a protest against what they see is wrong with their lives and being outside the EU could make their lives a whole lot worse if the economy nose-dives.
