Life has changed so dramatically in 50 years. When I was young I had to wait  for a reply to a letter which now is replied to within seconds. Telephones were used after 6pm when it was cheaper now we are on portable ones all day long.  We were very appreciative of everything due to The War, We darned our clothes, polished our shoes and we did not change our appointments. We were fast but did not have benefits of digital communication. I used cheque books and cash  not a plastic card.
I respect the past but I cannot live there.

This year Politics has kept us on the edge,  a few outsiders could go, Rachel Johnson did not stick by her brother and John Bercow did not stick by the Brexiteers and wasted 3 years. Extinction Rebellion were noisy and condone chaos and filth. Every time there is an election Westminster Bridge is targeted proving that stabbings are a non successful way to communicate.
Etiquette has diminished and terrorism has increased as has white collar crime.  World change, the year of the pig unearthed many dodgy practises.

For me sanity comes from art. Three years ago I made an art project with art director Tomas Auksas called Working Class which is being shown at The Paris Fashion Week 2020 me scrubbing and cleaning. I also did a sale with my furniture and clothes through The Swan Auction House which continues.  It is good to sieve my collection, clear some art as I do not have the space and manage my wardrobe.

The BBC are making  a programme on  real women in Chelsea among them Tracy Worcester and Alison Jackson who photographs Her Majesty The Queen in provocative poses outside betting offices and bathing her grandchildren. Tracy fights for pigs, making sure they  have happy lives. Tracy and I both fight the extradition of Julian Assange to the USA. We were interviewed by Mehreen Baig a teacher who has turned into a TV Presenter.

Then there was the election and fight for BREXIT which were bad for my nervous system. Good luck to Boris Johnson. Labour and Jeremy Corbyn are now busted flushes. Thank goodness we can save our Queen and country from Social Marxism, we have to reverse the trend.

My jaw was practically frozen but helped by the good news of a woman who saved my teeth at The Kensington BUPA dentist. She has brushed them up to last another decade with any luck.

Next year it is the Year of the Rat, fast and charming the rat won the race, of course with a little cheating but that should help the excitement ahead. May your dreams come true with a smile of course. I can't wait for the year ahead as I am a Rat too.

26 reasons to leave the EU

26 reasons to leave the EU. These all come into effect in January. Funnily enough the Remainer's don’t tell you this but now you know why they are so desperate to keep it going past January.
1: The UK along with all existing members of the EU lose their abstention veto in 2020 as laid down in the Lisbon Treaty when the system changes to that of majority acceptance with no abstentions or veto’s being allowed.
2: All member nations will become states of the new federal nation of the EU by 2022 as clearly laid out in the Lisbon treaty with no exceptions or veto’s.
3: All member states must adopt the Euro by 2022 and any new member state must do so within 2 years of joining the EU as laid down in the Lisbon treaty.
4: The London stock exchange will move to Frankfurt in 2020 and be integrated into the EU stock exchange resulting in a loss of 200,000 plus jobs in the UK because of the relocation. (This has already been pre-agreed and is only on a holding pattern due to the Brexit negotiations, which if Brexit does happen, the move is fully cancelled - but if not and the UK remains a member it’s full steam ahead for the move.)
5: The EU Parliament and ECJ become supreme over all legislative bodies of the UK.
6: The UK will adopt 100% of whatever the EU Parliament and ECJ lays down without any means of abstention or veto, negating the need for the UK to have the Lords or even the Commons as we know it today.
7: The UK will NOT be able to make its own trade deals.
8: The UK will NOT be able to set its own trade tariffs.
9 The UK will NOT be able to set its own trade quotas.
