🗳 I have (postal) voted for David Gauke in South-West Hertfordshire. The constituency has voted Conservative since 1950 and I can’t see it changing, but as our most recent MP (now Independent) he has the best chance of anyone of defeating the Conservative candidate.

So sad to hear about the passing of Clive James. I’ve been dipping into his Cultural Amnesia for months and always come away feeling schooled and humbled by how little I know. I love it that this is the same man who brought Margarita Pracatan into our lives.
