Soppy Sunday

n-im-gonna-be-a-scout

I noticed on my Twitter feed, that there is a wee lad called Bradley Lowery. He’s not very old but he has cancer and has only a few months to live. His greatest ambition now is to get thousands of Christmas cards. If you’ve got a spare one, and a stamp you don’t need, here’s his address:

Did you ever see a lovelier smile…?

SOPPY SUNDAY

For captions hold your mouse over the picture. Or if you wish to see the slideshow, click on any picture, the caption will show at the bottom. Hope this works OK for you.

I’ve just read Mark Frankland’s blog about Donald. As ever I leave Mark’s blog with tears of sadness and anger in my eyes. I am truly ashamed to be a part of a country that treats people like this but at the same time I’m  proud to be a part of a country that has people like Mark Frankland in it.

Mark has more than met his target to keep Donald warm until the mean-minded bastards at the DWP see fit to give the guy some money to keep warm, and Mark and his team will feed him from First Base until February.

But we all know that Mark will have to face more Donalds before long.

If you can give here’s the link.

Y’know, they talk big about Great British Values and how we are a Christian country and how their every step is guided by the gospels. But how in the name of hell can they be when they do this to people. Maybe they just had different gospels from the ones we read at school.
