Today would have been my lovely mums 87th birthday. So many times I meant to call but stupidly allowed work to stop me. Today I would give anything to hear her voice again. If you are lucky enough to have your parents with you please call them now & tell them you love them

It is clearer & clearer that Cummings did Brexit as a ploy to get Cameron out, enlisting Boris but intending to ditch him after. The plan was to put in his patron Gove - Game of Thrones & all that - & his rage now is because it all went wrong, as coups like this usually do
@JacobTurnerArt @Usborne @childrensbkshop @Dauntbooks @alligatorsmouth I nearly gave up once, then realised I couldn't. After so many years, the thought of it all being for nothing was too painful.
