Go Jeremy! (Caution; UK Politics)
I'm terribly, terribly, thrilled.
Since the universally welcomed resignation of Ed 'Carved in Stone' Miliband, I'm very pleased to see that the fabulous Jeremy Corbyn MP has thrown his hat into the ring, and become a candidate for the leadership of the UK's Labour Party.
Not that I have any influence in the matter, but I'm giving him my fullest support.
A man like Jeremy at the helm of Labour should preserve their rightful position in British politics for decades to come.
Jeremy is also being backed by the 'Unite' Union who are the major funders of his party; so, that's good too.
If we're going to have a left-wing party, lets have a pukka left-wing leader.
We went with friends to the Scallop festival in Whitianga; a charming
seaside town in the Coromandal District.
Had a great time...5000 people, lots of wine...

The difference between an optimist and a pessimist, is that the optimist enjoys himself whilst waiting for the inevitable! I AM that optimist!
This is a daily, optimistic, 'photos and comments' blog. I make no judgements (only occasionally), just notes. If you wish to comment in any way at all, please feel free. Everything and everyone is very welcome.
I was born just south of London, but for the past 44 years I've lived in S W France. I am a painter by profession, and writer by desire. Lady Magnon and I live in an ancient cottage, in a tiny village, in perfectly tranquil countryside. We have a vegetable garden called 'Haddock's' (this may crop up from time to time), a Border Collie cross called Bok, a cat called Freddie, plenty of fruit trees, and a view that takes the breath away. I try to treat our planet with respect, and encourage others to do likewise (without preaching).
Contentment is a glass of red, a plate of charcuterie, and a slice of good country bread. Perfect!
