Leaving on a jet plane

The taxi`s waiting, he`s blowing his horn. With grey skies over Walsall, we are out of here. Tomorrow will watch the sun rise over Albania and will cool our feet in the Adriatic.

With United Kingdom government ministers locked in a deadly contest to see who is the most corrupt or the most incompetent, any relief from the madness, however brief, is most welcome. The calculated destruction of all that made this country great is an act of vandalism that is hard to bear and a week away from the carnage can only be considered as respite care. So, we will spend our Euros in Greece and hope and pray that our wretched coalition government falls apart whilst we are away. Sadly, the alternative does not look too promising.

Have a good week, I shall be in denial and thinking only of the price of Amstel and Ouzo. Ya su, kalispera.
