I’m a bit fed up tonight. After a long day in Perry Barr, (where a very rough straw poll taken amongst my students showed them leaning strongly towards the Lib Dems) and a long drive home (still no New Party posters up anywhere,), I got back to find that the minor ear operation I was due to undergo on Thursday has been cancelled. The surgeon who was due to perform is stuck in India, because of the bloody ash.
So I’m turning this up loud, because now I’m going to be deaf for another month or so, and I’m trying to think of ways I can blame Gordon Brown, but I can’t come up with one. Not even ‘tectonic plates of British politics shifting’, because that’s just a metaphor, and a cliched one at that. However hard I try, I just can’t see how Gordon is in any way responsible. Am I going soft?
