Naturally, On Saint Patrick's Day...

We go to Wales.

Looking forward to it, been a long time since I visited Cardiff. I may try to persuade our hosts to take us out into the country - or knowing us, we'll just spend time drinking, talking, watching the rugby and basically goofing around. It's all good.

Yesterday was interesting, what with the Tories getting the electoral commission's largest fine for electoral expenses fiddling, Geert Wilders' failure demonstrating that Netherlanders have a lot more sense than we do, and May making it clear she won't give permission for a Scottish referendum, using, of all things, polling evidence as a justification for Scottish people not wanting it - as if polling has been a reliable gauge of anything over the past two years!

I have things to do before we go, and I'm stalling. Time to get things done... After another coffee.

I can only cope with UK politics if it is filtered through Private Eye magazine. I have been subscribing to the New European, which is surprisingly good but not much fun.

I tend to read whatever is around, the New European, the Times, the Guardian, the Telegraph if I can bear it, the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Financial Times,Reuters...But for the sake of my sanity allow myself no more than an hour of this stuff a day. It's just so surreal to observe what's going on out there.

I had forgotten about Private Eye - will have to catch up on it!
