I used to write quite a bit about politics, but I have really given up. Why?

For the foreseeable future, and way beyond my lifetime, the far right are in control of the UK.  Any threats to the status quo, like Jeremy Corbyn or Alex Salmond are neutralised by right wing puppets like Keir Starmer and Nicola Sturgeon.

So with the idiots, liars, double dealers and crooks democratically in charge I have given up on politics. I’ll stick with my hobbies and hopefully get back into performing.

Love junkies wanna change the world
It quickly stays the same
Money junkies hire all the smart ones
Power junkies run the game
