Election Shock

Well, I didn't see that coming. but nor did Theresa May, Linton Crosby, the mainstream media or the tabloids - all of whom have been made to look much more stupid and less streetwise than they would like. It's exciting and positive, because it removes Brexit as "the last time the country decided anything." That depressing majority in favour of going back to the past is looking shakier by the day - and for the good reason that the kids have had enough of fogies fixing their future. It's not going to be easy or simple, but it could well get better, somewhere down the line, and it's a long time since I felt like that.
