DD306 : Living Political Lives - Take 2

Well that has been a bit of a busy three months since my last post.

Wish I had put my money where my mouth was as I had been predicting a narrow win for the Leave campaign, but that the government would wriggle about and try and avoid actually doing anything to advance BREXIT.

Shows what a complete clown Cameron was. There was a number of safe guards he could have easily put in place to stop BREXIT happening around percentage trigger point, participation and the like and failed to do anything. The result is that it has firmly proven that you don't have to be the brightest or the best to become Prime Minister. An individual's ability matters far less than their money. So, nothing new learned there then.

On a brighter note, I can modestly refer to my Edinburgh Fringe stint as a success. I won't be Live at the Apollo anytime soon, and there have been no offers of turning the story into a musical, but I had far better audiences than I had any right to expect and folk seemed to enjoy it, so all-in-all a really good experience.

Now that my desire to tread the boards has been sated, I'd better turn my attention back to finishing this degree. Deferring with only 2 essays and a project to go may seem an odd decision, but there was no way I could have done both the OU work and the organisation for an Edinburgh Fringe show at the same time without both suffering. So, I have just received the course reader book (again), am waiting on being assigned a tutor (I would really like the same one I had last year) and I guess I have to get used to studying again in October.

I am going to try and get ahead as far as possible, especially as I shouldn't have to do the first 4 essays again, and really push on and get the project done with as little drama as possible.

However, I have just 'inherited' a really nice electric guitar. I can't play the electric guitar ..... yet! But I have set myself the target of a Glastonbury main stage performance in 2019, might be a bit of a bigger ask than the Edinburgh Fringe project, but if you don't aim high........
