What with all the Thatcher worship, demonisation of benefit claimants and talk of nuclear armageddon its easy to get despondent.
Here are 4 reasons to be cheerful
1- Its sunny!
2- Despite or because of the the Maggie coverage and the exploitation of the Philpott case the Tories opinion polls have fallen further and across all the major polling bodies.They are now on 28% of the vote.
3- we are beginning to win over the Bedroom Tax both in terms of public opinion and in the pressure we are putting on Local authorities not to enforce it by re-classifying rooms as study rooms etc or evict people who cant pay is starting to tell. Large scale re-classifications and pledges against evictions by Councils and housing association are spreading.
4- Black Sabbath are reuniting.
