It’s difficult at present not to feel the world is a mad and dangerous place to be. The brutality and devastation in Ukraine, the immediate sacking of 800 P&O workers who seem to have no employment rights at all, Nazanin Zaghari Ratcliffe confirming she should never have been held hostage in Iran for 6 years while 5 different foreign secretaries talked of negotiating her release.
I don’t write about politics on my blog although I do rant a lot about mindless bureaucracy. Sometimes I am offended by the political comments of other bloggers and their assumption that I am of the same persuasion. Now however I am enraged by how the world seems to revolve on power and money, greedy grabby companies and individuals, few leaders prepared to lead and a lot of ordinary folks trying to make a difference.
I have no answers to the despair we all feel but I need to acknowledge it is there and I have. Let me finish with a photo that arrived this afternoon of Grigio and Enrico taking the sun. Who knows when we shall see them, Europe needs to feel more stable before we will leave Ilkley.
