Not much running for me this week - Fathers' day on Sunday so we did family stuff, then work and the school being closed on Thursday for the referendum kind of scuppered all but one lunchtime run. Parkrun yesterday was warmer than last week, but I still managed 31:43, so only 16 seconds slower than last week's PB. I started off too fast - tried to keep up with Orange Shirt from the beginning, so my laps went 10:07, 10:31, 10:50 plus the wee bit to the finish. Good learning process though.
Hopefully next week will be cold and damp, and the pacers in good form........
No run this morning either - in work trying to catch up before holiday time. Shouldn't really be here.............Bye!
Screamapillar, if you want a terrible evening go and read Katie Hopkins' Twitter feed. I always thought she was just a panto villain. Turns out she's the mainstream voice of far right hate speech. The replies are a treat.
I'd rather wire my nipples to the mains.
The country (and most probably the EU) are in meltdown. Like in the Scottish referendum, half of the country thinks the other half are wrong, and are at each others' throats. It's awful. I am so sad it has come to this.
I don't think the petition to rerun the referendum will come to anything, and despite what I've seen elsewhere, I don't think the Tories will have the balls to ignore the vote and not invoke Article 50. So all we can do now is try to make damned sure neither Farage or Johnson become PM.
JT - Redwood is even more of an arse than I thought then. Listening to the radio at lunchtime, apparently the rest of the EU are even more shocked than we are, and see giving any concessions to the UK as being a green light to all the right wing parties already baying for referenda of their own (Netherlands, France, Spain), so will make it deliberately hard and nasty for us to exit.
I suspect there was a fair bit of "it'll never actually happen, so I can say what I want and use it to beat up the government at every opportunity" in the Leave camp.
