Time for a personal note.
Today, we took the kids to the South Bank for a, erm, 'mass busk', led by the inevitable comrade Bragg. Apparently it's all part of the so called Cultural Olympics..Naw, it was just an old fashioned mass open air singalong, with 500-600 hundred people, 50-60 guitars, a smattering of ukuleles (!), 2 trombones, a trumpet and a very impressive kazoo player. & Bill's alright - a definite good sort: he's being much better at being an ex-pop star than almost anyone else I know.
A small thing. But a nice one - there are so few occasions when this sort of mass participation is celebrated.
But on the way home we saw Evening Standard billboards from Friday which said: " Waiting for Meltdown Monday". I can't help thinking it's going to take a bit more than a chorus to 'One Love - Drop the Debt and Everything's Gonna be Alright' to sort that one out.
