It’s one of those times, like when a close friend or relative dies, when actually there is nothing to say. What words can express the horror of what is going on between the Israelis and the Palestinians, and which countries are profiteering from the arms they’re supplying? Hopefully a ceasefire is imminent…but I just can’t see why people don’t learn that no matter what the differences, killing is not necessary. ‘ Saw The Iron Lady (film about Thatcher) the other day – she was just as intransigent by all accounts re. the Falklands… apparently intelligence (such as an Oxford degree) doesn’t come into it when deciding to blow people apart… the human race does seem to be rather lacking in the brain department… Don’t worry, I’ll come up with something cheerful to counter this…when I can find the words….
