INFLATION

We have the highest inflation in the G7. Inflation is caused by a variety of factors. Oil and gas prices have soared due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, this has and will also hit grain and fertiliser costs; Brexit has resulted in a labour shortage and the increase in trade costs has spiralled; Climate change is also affecting commodity prices.

POLICE

Whilst I have sympathy for the Police it seems that there is need for major overhaul, especially of the Met. Racism, misogyny, class bias and lack of staff are the 4 major problems I can identify from an observers point of view. Racism and mysogyny need stamping out immediately – officers found to be racist by an properly independent body would be dismissed without compensation/pension rights. Class bias is presumably exercised at the highest levels so promotion routes/interviews need to be reorganised to ensure ability takes precedence over school/uni/friendship. the lack of staff has been a deteriorating scenario over Tory rule – the public want burglary investigated immediately, not in a weeks time if at all. I am sure many police officers would have valid and useful ideas regarding reorganisation and greater efficiency.

And how did party gate cost £450000? No interviews, a few questionnaires, documents readily available for perusal. And why did it take so long?

BUNTING

Bunting and flags strung across the road – fucking nightmare. they even attached to my trellis. It would be churlish to complain, but the royal family are unelected privileged toffs. I thought that Queeny might keep Johnson in line regarding the law – but as she has not they provides as much benefit to the general public as Coronation Street and EastEnders (gossip and scandal).

NEW SEASON

Elderflowers picked and soaking with lemon and orange zest. When done it will be strawberry and elderflower jam. Olive and herb bread made today. Shelves sorted – well tidied a bit!

LAW

Sleaze-Dogg says in retrospect we should consider whether the covid restriction laws were sensible, and therefore breaking them was justifiable. I would suggest anti-demonstration laws regarding climate change are even less sensible – in fact very, very stupid.
