What an historical moment....
It seems that we have cause to celebrate the impending victory that is to be Graham's landslide win to secure Head of Environment and Agriculture. George and James take heed: complacency withers. Clearly the guys at Greenpeace know 'what free men and women can achieve when imagination is joined to common purpose, and necessity to courage.' Stole those lines from a laptop left on a tube somewhere.
Coincidentally, across the pond, another momentous political moment is unfolding. Obamania is going global. Don't mean to be picky, but I think they may have missed a trick with Aretha Franklin and should have turned to T-Mobile to inject some feel good factor into the musical interlude. That said, I embrace the new leader with all my heart and look towards a shiny, new dawn...so much so that I have been moved to post my favourite part of Barack's speech on TimesOnLine:
On this day, we come to proclaim an end to the petty grievances and false promises, the recriminations and worn out dogmas, that for far too long have strangled our politics.
Let's hope Gordon pays heed...be the change!
As for 'our Graham' (I can hear Cilla's voice in my head)....time to start scribbling down thoughts for your very own inaugural speech. It's just too exciting!
Big Kisses around the world,
PS Did you notice Aunty Gladys doing the Mash Potato? That's the white handbag that she swished for my bl***y scarf!
