At the bottom of each post there is the word "comments". If you click on it you will see comments made by followers, and if you follow the instructions you may also comment and I always welcome that. I have found many people overlook this part of the blog which is often more interesting than the original post!

My blog nick-name is SIR HUGH. I'm not from the aristocracy - my middle name is Hugh which relates to the list of 282 hills in Scotland compiled by Sir Hugh Munro in 1891. I climbed my last one (Sgurr Mor) on 28th June 2009

It is difficult to comprehend that this is happening in our country.

Shades of the 1930s in another country.

I just have no motivation to continue with this post at the moment. What else can one do? I have written to our MP.

I have just found there is a petition to sign:

Tried to comment earlier, but don't think it stuck, so apologies if this is repetition. Thank you for the link to the petition, I wholeheartedly agree with your comments in both your posts today. So this is how we regain the sovereignty of parliament? Shameful.
