What an incredible pack of lies. Absolutely stinks of Bojo.

In a way I feel sorry for her. She's not a complete idiot - she knows Trump's closeness to Putin, dossier or no dossier, is no stabilising influence,and she cannot want our intelligence services or national security compromised by so volatile an ally, who may or may not be the puppet of another power. But she is terrified of the far right wing of the tory party, of the party splitting and UKip mopping up the frothing remains. Then of course, there are the business interests that donate to the Tories but feel betrayed by the insanity of leaving Europe. How can she ensure their profits? All she can do is cut taxes and regulations. What happens to tax intake then? Goes down. What happens to things like the NHS then? Ummmm. But her followers have long wanted to stop paying for that anyway. The only good news about this whole pile of rotting tripe, is that when it all begins to stink and my addled countrymen find themselves forced to eat it,they will no longer be able to blame anyone else for their meal.

Her priorities are clear; party first, then business, then country. How TF anyone who voted for this nonsense can call themselves a patriot beats me.

It really is time to leave this country.

...To grow my hair again.

I've had short hair for ages now. Got it cut 2010, got it cropped properly pixie short 2012. I have really loved it; there's something very vulnerable about the nape of one's neck exposed. Plus I could focus on my real face for a bit. It was a bit exposing, but nice to see myself without the curtain.

I had been influenced a bit by Mum too. 'Older women with long hair look like witches,' she told me cheerfully; certainly there can be something a little worrying if the long haired person has long nails and prominent teeth, I'll admit that. All the women in my family cut their hair short, and they all look good with it, turning into female variants of Al Pacino,with hair that goes white and spikes up above incongruous dark eyes. If that's my face-fate, there's worse that could happen. I am less concerned about being haglike than turning into Pink's ageing 'Stupid Girl,' with her ringlets and shell suit.

But now I need a change. My hair's approaching that shrubby stage, where the top is growing long. So exactly what am I going to do with the sides? If more of it gets shoved behind my ears they'll start sticking out like handles. It looks ever so peculiar.

My hair takes ages to grow at all, and then just sits sullenly at my jawline, hating all product. It likes to be Servalan short or Cher long. It doesn't do curls of any kind. It listens to scissors and it likes straight lines. On a good day, it will give me a touch of the Audrey Hepburns. On a bad day, it has been known to present me with Side-Show Bob.

I am not going to grow it long so much as lure it into stretching. While it suspects nothing, it'll probably behave.
