It’s been a while

The Mudlets were thrilled at how well their pine cones sold and my toys did okay as well.

November was the last time I wrote something for my blog and, at that time, it was a relief when I took the decision to put down my virtual pen and walk away. That said, I would occasionally pop in and have a nose around the blogs I follow but for the most part, the WP tile on my phone was left untouched, neglected and alone, passed over as I reached for Google, email, word or the camera tiles instead. I’m not entirely sure what went wrong, other than it became a chore to sit down and start typing which was a shame because I love writing, as is evidenced by the articles I still produce for the village magazine and letters I draft on behalf of Gardening Club or the PTA.

Over recent weeks, however, the urge to reclaim my blog has been growing ever stronger and I am finally ready to re-enter the world of blogging, albeit with a more relaxed approach and to start with, here is an update on happenings in Mudville: Continue reading

It’s cheating!

Whether you are a member of the stay camp, leave camp or ‘haven’t made my mind up’ camp, the decision, by David Cameron, to spend £9 millions of taxpayers money on leaflets, to try and persuade voters to choose to remain in the EU, come referendum day, is nothing short, in my opinion, of cheating. It is an abuse of power and shows a complete lack of respect for democracy and equality and it’s a particularly bitter pill to swallow when you consider the budget cuts that have been imposed on public services across the board in recent years.

Mr Cameron should be ashamed of these underhand tactics.

Each side in the referendum debate was allocated £7 millions to fund their campaign, access to which I believe begins next week but I suppose it will be too much to hope that the electoral commission will find that this blatantly unethical approach to the referendum campaign, is no better than cheating and will allocate a further £2 millions to Brexit and confiscate the £7 million Remain were officially allowed to spend.

In the mean time I am watching with interest as the petition to stop Cameron spending additional taxpayers money continues to gather support, currently standing in excess of 148k which should mean that a debate be held, although this isn’t guaranteed and isn’t, I suspect, going to happen any time soon.

I’m not one for voicing my political beliefs on this blog but this time I felt that my dismay and disgust at such underhand and unethical methods, to try and swing the vote one way or the other couldn’t be ignored ………  I can’t abide cheating!!!
