Corona purifies

Bare bones. That’s what we’re down to. The joints and marrow…

Stripped of image, distraction, routine. I’m left with me and you with you.

Is this some sick Darwinian trick of nature- leaving a burning hot ember to kick start society once again?

Is Mother Nature finally getting her own back and ruthlessly dismantling our putrid consumerism…giving humans back the time (we were so poor of) to simply kick back and get lost in the perennially pure azure skies …

The clean skies that have suddenly and miraculously returned. Like- now you see her, now you don’t.

The boundless skies robbed by flight companies and Our insatiable appetite for more and cheaper travel ‘experiences’.

Isn’t it shocking how little we need to survive? How things we don’t normally see, now take on seismic proportion in our day: a strangers smile, a bursting blossom, the gasping coldness of tap water, the closeness of 2 breathing bodies side by side-

Human touch

Now Heroic and Sacrificial

The new and improved Africa land grab…

So the new imperialism starts again…circles are so frustrating and boring… this time Russia is the major player in carving up my Beloved Africa according to The New York Times.

Out with Western imperialism and in with Eastern style exploitation where they treat the colonised with ‘respect’ according to this article.

The responses to the NYT epitomise the greedy and sneaky attitude to Africa.. there’s an underlying assumption that we’re gonna be controlled… the question is who.

No.

I’m tired of being presented as a victim… coz that’s just not what Africans are. We’re beautiful, innovative and super nova clever.

Look at Botswana and their upward trajectory. The Africa Development Bank even states that a borderless Africa would make us more powerful on the global stage.

The way TNYT presents our plight reminds me of living in an abusive marriage where I’d lost so much confidence in my ability to be independent and so had those around me.

I had to forge new links, cut out the parasites, relate on my terms, to move forward and I am!!!I’m unrecognisable!!!! We need to stand on our own 2 feet and we can…

Grenfell… who will fall?

Failed. Those court findings fail.

They flail at putting the right people to resign, be publicly mocked, and punished.

The blame put on the Fire Brigade today makes me physically sick.

When all the money has been sucked out of public services in the name of Austerity,by the very idiots who call Brexit an effective use of public funds. mmmmm

When the fire brigade can only do what their funds dictate…. of course set by our government. Like the police, schools, hospitals how are they supposed to operate on no money?

The government are putting the working classes to death in this country through starving them of what they deserve because the only people who suffer in this public- service- starvation – are the penniless masses, not the decision makers, who probably have private health care and a skiing trip round the corner to look forward to.

It makes me sick that I volunteered at Grenfell for weeks and weeks and weeks helping in the community, wrote about it, yet none of the truth was leaked to our prestigious press…

Nothing was heard of the many more bodies that were seen by locals but not officially counted, of the mounds of victims who were illegally in the UK, of the weeks it took the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to give the survivors food; my mates were doing it!!!!! Of the joke – public meetings where the top people at the council behaved like they were fresh out of a 1920s aristocratic film set.

They had no empathy, they were wooden, they didn’t know what they were talking about, their posh accents were just one of the painful reminders of the chasm between the Lord of the Manor and the Poor … How do such Etonites end up ‘representing’ those struggling and drowning in the poverty trap.

It’s a joke 🙄🙄🙄🙄🙄
