Jeremy and the Turtle

Jeremy Corbyn, “leader” of the UK’s Labour Party for a while. He was utterly ineffectual and, whether by design or simply incompetence, actively protected anti-Semites within his party. This is unforgivable.

Angela and Theresa

Do you remember the UK’s Prime Minister Theresa May? Does anyone? If so, do you remember her fondly? I certainly don’t. This was written in 2018 and we’re still suffering from her, and subsequent leaders’, “decisions” even now. That’s looking likely to be the case for some time to come.

Nigel and the Robin

A (probably) fictional conversation between an entirely (honest) fictional character called Nigel and a (most likely) real robin. This was written in 2018 and is still, disconcertingly, relevant in mid-2021.

The Replacement

How we perceive change has a lot to do with our prior experiences. If those aren’t taken into account, well meant and perhaps even minimal changes in circumstance can have a far greater impact than expected.
