Thanks Sarah. Life in Lewisham is sort of OK. I will be wandering up there a little later. It really is such a while now since I have been called a “****ing white ****” by a black woman that I feel in need of a fix (actually of course most of the black people here are perfectly fine but that incident always sticks in my mind as an example of the way the left has licensed attitudes on the part of ‘minorities’ that it would excoriate if displayed by members of the ‘majority’ population – not that it is a majority here).
Don’t be too harsh on Rod. The problem is that unlike some of the more grotesque examples of Labour womanhood Shami is rather bland and more presentable. As such she doesn’t lend herself so easily to satire though it seems she will lend heself to other things. I trust you are fine – I understand that life in Tower Hamlets is pretty much the same as it was previously.
