Physical upkeep is non stop. Just as you think you can rest a new machine comes out to rejuvenate and make you into a miraculous specimen of humanity. Today I went to organise a neon sign for my good old friend Dr. Jean Louis Sebagh.  I was immediately instead put on the table to try out the machine from Europe which is an alibaba of ideas to firm the skin, keeping you as vital as possible. It felt like a thousand tiny pricks and left me a little pink. It hurt slightly when leaving the doctors office but three hours later my skin is slightly more plump and definitely more healthy looking. A girlfriend came in to my room and told me about a new mask that Madonna was using too. So much beauty and so little time.
If keeping young is hard work so is travel nowadays, at the beginning of the year shoes and clothes were stolen out of my suitcase at Terminal 5, now this week end BA again has another theft a necklace saying "Fuck You" was stolen by the designer Plein. What is the matter with security?. It is truly boring. I was going to give it to Tracey Emin for her birthday present instead I gave a case of Rose from The Chateau I was staying in called Chateau Beaulieu.  We were celebrating the retrospective at Chateau La Coste of Tracey's work, truth be told those friends that were there were her loyal tribe, we all love her, her paintings and new wonderful bronze sculptures.
This incredible contemporary Chateau is owned by the hotelier  Patrick Mckillen, which at its entrance has the huge spider by Louise Bourgeois, looking magnificent, it is not only an artistic feast but a cullinary feast too. Contemporary architecture has enhanced a small chateau making it one of the the most vital places in the South of France along with its fantastic exciting collection.
Spider by Louise Bourgeoise  at the entrance of Chateau La Coste.

Last week I supported my good friend Sir Tim Rice and his brilliantly energetic newish musical about Blondel who was a wandering minstral who saved King Richard in Austria during the Crusades. So entertaining and witty I would suggest anybody who likes theatre should visit The Union Theatre to see it. It was more entertaining in some respects than anything else I have seen on stage recently despite loving the play about Queen Anne, which was exceptional too from the RSC. Lots of music and bawdy movement in the Haymarket depicting the betrayal and deceit of two friends.

A day later I went to the Serpentine Gallery Summer Party which definitely for better or for worse has a new guest list. Flash and brash buyers were out in force and of course the flamboyant and talented ceramicist, whose work I totally love.
Nancy Dellolio with artist Sue Webster
Grayson Perry never lets you down and definitely set the scene at the party. Tracey's week end retrospective in France was decidely up market and almost aristocratic in comparison, two huge bodies of Tracey in bronze stole the show. The art world is changing and the Young British Artists, once rough and unshaven, vulger and course, have now become the aristocrats, grown up and mature.
My favourite nude by Tracey Emin.

Sometimes I feel God is about as real as the Tooth Fairy and Father Christmas. Where and what is he? I believe in the Prophets and their tangible tales rather that a mystic God. I believe in Karma.
The more I see of people the more I want to wake them up.
If the people who complain about the rich ran a profitable company they may understand that it is not easy to create new ideas and jobs, that it takes a different type of talent. It is not magic it is generally hard graft. I truly believe there should be a safety net for society but that it should not be an absolute for the idle and those on the take. Like those who are rich and don't pay tax, those that are earning money but not paying tax should be reported too. So many people within the UK are working with cash under the table, come on you know who you are and you should contribute, after all,  you are using our country.  Taxi drivers, hairdressers, beauticians, the nail girl all are paid in cash?  On passports from the European Union, they ponce off our system of open borders, when asked if they pay tax, generally the girl looks down. This is not racism, Zenobia, this is just fact. Cash is tricky to follow and to keep. We all know that.  It allows for freedom, but not the contributions necessary to feed our country and keep it up to date. Incentives would be a good idea in helping encouraging people's honesty. Let's get over the rubbish, there is plenty of cash around anyway,  and it is just a question of how the money is spent.
The Grenfell Tower Block was a scandal, and should not be sickly used by political parties for one -upmanship.  Everybody would have helped, they would have if allowed. Political correctness and council cuts, shoddy workmanship and badly built buildings were to blame, however, it does not bring those that died back to life. I would have called over tannoys for help. Given out cups of tea and run the whole thing a lot more efficiently, but that is what I am good at.

It is not fair on the English population to accept the behavior of violent jihadists any longer. The Muslims choose to live an isolated indoctrinated life that is not compatible with ours and which is bang up to date for 672AD. They are uneducated using the Quran as their backbone which might be wise to modernize. It is not as if we read and live our lives by the bloodier bits of the Bible or Torah. It is not acceptable and we will fight against it. The Muslims wear clothes that are not compatible with our way of life in England, Scotland and Wales, and are violent and abusive to women and gay men, our population here, The USA and in Europe are attacked regularly. This week is the final straw. It is enough. We will fight back. We are fed up and those that do not want to integrate, they should leave for countries that suit them and be honest. Certainly not take subsidies and live here for our health service etc. They have encouraged our fear of "political correctness" which is nonsense. Katie Hopkins lost her job but Sadiq Kahn has not? They have lived off our fear of being accused of racism but enough is enough. A Muslim of this sort cannot be welcome in this country. Take off the burka, take off the Hajib, take off the Nihab, show your face and join in or get out. They have had support, they have had our money for education and help. Let's wake up and know that a "Fox is in the chicken house"

It's okay to have the @ISIS flag hanging out of a window and not okay to have poor choice of words from the controversial Katy Hopkins, who loses her job... Goodness what is world coming to? Freedom of speech? Why is it okay for Muslims to say "Kill the police" in a video in Luton. Lunacy and poor England and especially Manchester at the moment. This of course is not all Muslims but a few ruin it for everybody else.. The sick attitude has to change. Simply kick out the Muslims that are radicalized? Why should they remain on our system for the tax payers to pay for? But of course there is no welfare system in the Middle East. If you behave like this you get hung drawn and quartered there. Why is "Sharia Law" which the Muslims so adhere to, not sorting this out? If they want to join ISIS stay in the Middle East there are plenty that would agree with them.
Why are we allowing people back when they have been fighting against us? It's not right or left wing it is common sense? It is not racist to not be wild about those that don't like us? Come on, stop political correctness and change the status quo. What will England be like in 20 years time? Fine we are multi cultural but the people have to like us to be here and abide by our standards and rules not theirs,surely. Why are the Mulla's not sorting this out and why anyway in 2017 are they not sifting the bloodthirsty Quran as we do the bloodier bits of the Bible and the Torah. These are outdated ways to live our lives surely we could be all much more intelligent than follow rhetoric written 1599 years ago?

SUCCESS IS A DIRTY WORD: I say "Take a walk on the wild side"

I am selling my house in Palm Springs and if you want to be given a continual headache have more than one house, have it in California when you actually live in London. American's love paperwork so beware,  try going home when you are no longer in love with the lifestyle and fake boho, you could have a nervous breakdown with Escrow.
I would rather buy art. So with this idea I decide to go to Venice for the week end to see the Damien Hirst show which opened a few weeks ago at the Palazzo Grassi and also pop into a few other Palazzo's to view this years Biennale. I will leave the countries in the Garden until next time.
The art world is prickly. I sat at a table and listened to people discussing whether Damien Hirst's exhibition was better than Paul McCarthy? Personally I would prefer any day a bronze of a broken Aphrodite and a huge very male statue of Pereus to a vomiting SnowWhite or a huge green Butt plug as a tree. Both artists joke and I love this, but Butt plugs are not for me. Damien always has humour mixed with extravagance, and this is an incredible show that is beautiful and like a Hollywood Blockbuster.  You will see humour and thought, comments about the myths, the Eygptian's,  Budda, green jade made to look fake, the art world, history and I loved it. I notice people prefer failure, anybody who is successful get's a flogging. "Success" is a dirty word.

This is no more obvious than in politics. I am sorry I like people doing well and I hate crooked people.  I like honesty, the honesty of a Headmistress over a man who is really a Communist, who wants to embrace failure rather than success.  On another note,  I say for every refugee coming to the UK bring in a rich one too..Rich in mind, body and spirit. They can pay for the poor one.
For heavens sake don't be popular and well liked.
As for Trump the revolting way he has been treated and pushed about is disturbing.  I am not a fan of the hair or the orange face but the Russians and Fake News, to cover Pizzagate, Julian Assange leaks, Seth Rich, Vincent Foster,  Benghazi, the Podesta emails, Loretta Lynch, The Secret Service Prostitution Scandal, The Clinton Foundation, Haitians and so much more, is repellent and worrying.  "The Fake News" from huge organizations owned by the Illuminati, The Press and many Democrats is a terrible reflection on society and democracy,Trump himself get's the blame, his only stupidity is wanting to dream of making "America Great Again" The only other person to be like this was Kennedy who got shot. Keep safe President Trump you won the Democrats should get over it. Whatever side you are on the political world is so very sick, nothing has changed. SuperTramp sings an appropriate song. Alex Jones speaks about Trump.  Life goes on.  I say investigate everything Mr President, you will no doubt find the C's embroiled in all behind the scenes activities, be brave be calm. Why on earth fifty percent of America wanted Mrs Clinton heaven knows. It's not about left or right its about honesty and integrity. The position of the President has become very murky indeed. It is explained beautifully by the outrageous Roger Stone in "Get Me Roger Stone" On another note it is well known that anybody at anytime can listen to anybody's conversations whenever they choose with the right equipment. Famous or not everybody faces that risk. So what's the news?
The deplorable population need to stand up and speak up. They voted for that. I say "Drain the swamp" before its too late.
Now I am  off to the Beach Boys who will lift my spirits and remind me there is still hope for America, success and ethics. I may also listen tonight before falling asleep to Lou Reed's Take a walk on the wild side.. A brilliant song that now apparently is not so politically correct, actually thank goodness it never was.. sleep well.

As my birthday arrives,  I think my goodness, I had better work at being pure, perhaps go into religion?.  I received a birthday card saying "I think we need to get you a new hobby that doesn't involve penises" It is thought provoking and I was thinking, in a more delicate way, just the same thing.  I have thought about boys since seven years old so it could be tricky to change? Sex and the aging body is a combination  I dislike, I am a perfectionist.  I would rather make love in a candle lit room and not face harsh light of reality. The walk of shame this morning, despite being fun, has somehow lost its allure but at least I have a sense of humour as I crept out of my lovers house with just a pair of high healed shoes and my make up case at 7am. I wish now at this grand age that I had qualified as a Judge, a politician or a theatre director.  look in the mirror and see my fourteen year old self and often see the old wise woman.
Politicians have no qualifications ypee.
I talk about sex in secret nowadays, one of my best friends said to me "Nobody makes love after being with somebody for ten years. The conversation between friends is about the necessity of Magnesium and Vitamin D, Botox and an Eye lift, or whether to arrange a second facelift. I am constantly bathing to avoid the old age smell, using a product called "Mirai" to eradicate everything I dislike especially Nonenal the smell of old age.

My friends relationships look solid enough but when anybody leaves their husband after 55 they looked at with pity followed by whispers  "perhaps they need to 'see' somebody"  I am still living the divorcee life of a 45 year old with all its complications. Despite having two sons,  I seem to accumulate at least one more daughter a year. The girl behind me says"That is not true you only have me" I say well I have Lish and Lara and she turns and says"They are your cousins"
I am surrounded with youth and it is fabulous. I am lucky.
Am I too old for Fashion?  Never, I will always wear a mini skirt and red lipstick, I will always diet and I promise you one thing you never see a shabby year of the rat. Despite criticism I do not care.

The older generation seem to have slipped away from society hiding their flabby arms. I am now happiest on a cruise or at the Mayr Clinic. I am not quite ready for  'The Sunny Vale' as a friend addresses old peoples homes, but I do like an institution. They are truly addictive.

The Holy Land which I consider to be Israel,  was more interesting than I imagined. The Muslims in Jerusalem who were selling  crosses to Christian tourists made me think, why are there wars?  Then there were very religious Italians singing and praying whilst carrying the cross, The Israeli Police wearing enough makeup to look like the girls behind the make up counter in Harrods were thought provoking.  The only violence I saw was a stone thrown at a car and the UN Peace corps outside The garden of Gethsemane which was a beautifully looked after Olive Grove with colorful flowers. I had not imagined Israel to look like Tuscany, I thought there would be endless lines of barbed wire and I had not pictured the beauty of Galilee and the broken huge synagogue at Capurnaum. The air perfect,  or the serenity of  The mount of Olives which houses the dead. Wherever I looked I was moved by history.
I walked the steps to paradise to try and feel what Jesus could have felt, I placed candles to remember my family and friends that have left the earth. I felt chills up my spine continually,  feeling the souls who had been there in ancient times. I dipped myself in the Holy Water at Galilee. Nothing feels as it once felt.  I had been so stubborn about visiting Israel, not agreeing with its existence. Now I understand that Israel belongs to all of us whatever religion.  Jesus had rock star popularity, rock star appeal.
I see this as I get baptized in the sea of Galilee. I buy little trinkets of water and sand. Reminders of this man are everywhere. He did exist. He was indeed Jesus Christ superstar.

Boat life at sea feels like a never ending passage to heaven, the jolly Captain telling us vital information from the Bridge. This morning I had to buy an internet package. I said let's buy a weeks usage but the man said we are at sea for two more  weeks. Cruise life is a glamorous prison for those that are addicted to institutions, with free food and drink as much as you want, it has the feel of a smart old peoples home too, but my curious nature for knowledge is explored and satiated, so I am happy.  For somebody who hates alcohol like me, people become 'in their cups' late at night. I went to see a show with an elderly gentlemen and one witty attractive but very inebriated grandmother said to me "Where did you find him, heaven, or was it hell?"  late at night, the Seabourn can sway.

I am learning so much about the Bible, the Quran, The Torah, Jordan, Syria, Israel, pirates, Musical Theatre.  Geography and history are linked. Endless battles created, the strongest, determining the other country's success. It just had not occurred to me. I passed a little known but hugely important Country/port of Dijibouti home to spies, the USA, The Chinese, The British.  I look at photographs, the women were  beautiful like Brazilian bombshells. I think of stories of successful women in the area and there are many.  The beauty of  Cleopatra, TheVirgin Mary, The Queen of Sheba, Nefertiti and  the darker side, The Slave Trade, that made Oman and it's district so very profitable. I discover a slave in those days was the cost of an onion. A thesis I wrote at school and got actually top marks on was about the Slave Trade and William Wilberforce. If only I had gone on a trip like this when I was fourteen it would have been even better. Then there is the gun running and pirates. A world away from daily life in Chelsea and Los Angeles.
I have had the luck to listen to many passionate and emotional performances, especially by the violinist Peter Fisher, composer, Tamara Konstatin and baritone Jonathan Christopher, not excluding the other brilliant talent who are performing in a "A night with Sir Tim Rice"  my nights are all so very different.

I try to diet and am unable to keep to a detox, for the first time in my life my puritanical way of life is thrown overboard. I will come away from this trip with a better understanding of politics and the rapacious and the unpredictable world we live in today and of its history.
If you don't mind living  a Thomas Mann story,  with all sorts of unexpected exposure and characters,  to the world this could be 'the way of life'  an amazingly colourful trip for you. You like others could become addicted to

Carpets and souks

A few days ago someone sent me a photograph of me at 27 just before I got married to Johan. I think it was that year. I got married on the 9th June 1988 but the picture must have been in May as it is was my friends birthday, the dress I wore for my wedding was already worn. That is bad luck to start with but the picture, personal to me only told me a lot, and made me think.
Wearing gold jewelry, my hair darkened as I hid my white blonde hair then, I look worried which for someone with a huge sense of humour looks strange. I was wearing a Belville Sassoon dress with big white sleeves and I still own it.  The picture was sent to me at a time when I am starting a new chapter. It has made me think back to my life and what I wanted to achieve then.

 I was born in Lebanon but left six weeks afterwards to English parents, one a journalist the other an opera singer.  I always said I would go when I am going to die. Because of politics and the world we live in now I wish to explore areas I do not know before then, to understand the Middle East you must visit it. I decided to do this by ship. The Seabourn, and the boats name is Encore.  Discovering that Arabia is a huge desert made of shells. I decided to make a trade journey through it. Muslims we know love trade and they have existed side by side with the Chinese and Africans, Indians and Europeans. I realize I must take time to relive the past and future, and this is the last luxurious way to travel.  The biggest commodities were frankincense, pearls, ivory, slavery, peppers, fabrics and weapons, now it is oil.  America sells 34,000 billion of weapons a year and Great Britain 8 Billion a year to Saudi Arabia alone. In times past the British have had good relations which meant trading and traveling permits to safety through Arabia. If you do this trip you will have a better  understanding of the current climate .

The areas are valuable, dangerous and vast. The climate extreme. From China to Baghdad, from Japan to Europe via Zanzibar, Oman  the demand for trade was and is necessary. Oman is one of the most important trade ports. Nearby in ancient times the Queen of Sheba lived it has exotic history. Copper was produced along with textiles, timber. I am following the original daring trader, Sinbad the 11.
Rich now from oil, the Arabs have abandoned their tents and two breeds of camels, one with a one hump and another with two humps  to drive in air conditioned luxury and live in huge magnificent contemporary architectural buildings collecting artifacts, Arabian horses and falcons.  From Saudi Arabia, Oman, Qatar, Abu Dhabi, the sea dominates their lands and the mountains protect their caravan route, whilst the mosques and prayers keep their people pretty pure.
I fall asleep to the sounds of the ship and dream of carpets and souks, wishing to follow previous brave women who studied Arabic and lived there,  who fell in love with the Nomad's way of life.

Cautious an Arab bites

1. "Don't reduce people to one word they are many words
Bad people say others are bad, good people say they are bad.
Everything in life is flawed, religions, politicians, institutions,
what we do for other people is what we are. The best people to ask in a room for charity are those with a guilty conscience
We need to undo what is taught. The Bible/Theology is not scientific it is a metaphor.
See the good in people.
The power of morality is to effect calm.
Careful with language, people have different paths. Gossip is bad, all things can be corrupt.
Change negative to positive, it is not exclusive. Those that you find negative have positivity too find it. Groups can be negative, religion is just a way to get

through, all institutions are faulty, two things we know are wrong are stealing and killing, thank goodness Eve gave the apple to Adam".

2. "No purity without impurity
Holy pure food on offer had nothing
to do with health in the Old Testament.
The Temple was there to remind the jews of their wrong doings.
They have the A-Z of wrong doings.
A masochistic idea with purpose and value.
They can create more if they are humble.
It differs from self deprecation.
It makes you self analytical.
The greatest people in the world are humble.
History is interesting as it teaches us what not to do.
It's philosophy is good.
It is subservient to values.
The Bible is a newspaper.

There is a problem to hymns as people sing and do not listen to the words"
Nothing is absolute.
It does not matter if it is true as nothing is true.
If you steal a television you will get a prison sentence
but if you rape your wife/a woman, you get more time in prison for
taking the television.
Anything done towards a woman is evil.
No absolutes in groups, no absolute morality, except murder for which you can only be killed for if you are a Nazi.
Santuary cities have always existed there were 6 in the Bible.
They took people who had accidentally killed.
Equality is not sameness
Do not wear anything unless if means something to you.
Do not do things you don't understand.
A synagogue/church is a place for study, meeting or gathering.

4.The Arabian/Muslim land mass is larger than India.
The sand in this area is made up of millions of broken up shells. Originally it was under water. Sand dunes can be as high as the Eiffel Tower. Originally the land of Frankincense and spices which was very valuable in Roman times and Frankincense in particular was used for embalming. It is now the land of oil, blood and gold.. as my Father Anthony Cave Brown wrote.
The Arabs have so much money now that they do not know what to do with it. They build like crazy and have from camal herds built pseudo space ships, futuristic in style, in three generations, they have made their land unrecognisable.
Never forget their sophistication. Their writing looks like sacred geometry which was used for prayer mats, decoration. .The writing is hypnotic and remember the depiction of human form is illegal. Arabic is beautifully written and is full of emotion and in one form. The Suffi poets were incredible, just take a look at the poems of Khalil Gibran.
They are used to hiding, for thousands of years they hid, as the trade routes were always attacked, they never divulged the routes by sea or land. 
The simple difference between The Shiites and The Sunnis is the Shiites want to believe the writings from the direct decedents of Mohammed and the Sunnis want the writings by someone who understands what was written in the beginning.
Remember whatever the brand,
the Muslim has a bigger vision than himself and that is his God.
Where has it all gone wrong?

I decided this year to try everything that I thought previously was not going to be fun. It is incredible how we put limitations on ourselves with nonsensical ideas of what we do and don't like.  I want to remain young in spirit keeping an open mind. With this thought, I decided to go on a cruise, try forex markets, accounting and eating correctly.  So far I am having the time of my life, having met new people with new experiences. So I shall write about those. First the packing for the cruise.

Don't we need fun in these turbulent times?.
Clothes always keep me happy as well as Yoga.
I am going on a cruise with Seabourn.Com and wanted the perfect clothes and found them with
the following designers.

Alessandro Michele for Gucci ticks all the boxes and makes fashion  young and vibrant again.

I have bought the platform cream and dark blue striped shoes, a suit with pearls and several pairs of sunglasses.

The touch of madness and brilliant cut keeps me happy in my  wardrobe that is mostly black. The hairbands are a must

for wind and make me feel like the glamorous Norma Desmond from Sunset Boulevard.

Alessandro also helps those that have suffered from human trafficking one of my favourite charities.

His shows never let us down and last week I saw women from 20-70 and all nationalities take joy from trying

on his individual style. 

 Rei Kawakubo from Comme des Garçons is the most intellectual of designers and probably the one that is the most flamboyant yet architectural.
The name "Like Boys" suits the brand. I love the quirky style, which is often more creative than the contemporary art world. When you are over 45 it is good to feel up to date at the swimming pool.
The fabulous shapes suit me. Last week I bought  a black coat with half of it missing on one side. It has a madness that catches the eye and a feminist feel to it. I love the fashion show of bold large designs.  The twist of humour keeps fashion alive for me.

Julia Haart us the creative director at La Perla, I wear her clothes as well as her underwear.
I simply adore them. They fit and feel wonderful on my body. It is a miracle when everything looks good from the front and back.
I bought a wonderful corset suit, a pair of sequin shorts which made me look as if I was still twenty.
The classical shapes have a twist that gives me glamour.

Remember when packing to always use tissue paper. A tip from my Grandmother was always pack with it. I have done this all my life and now my clothes look brand new when some are twenty years old. I generally buy plastic and put the clothes on thin velvet hangers. 
In the plastic I put tissue paper. It works well.
Try and stay the same weight all your life, do not yoyo diet it wrecks your face. I lose weight with the 
mayr diet which is incredible. I do it four times a year for each season.

Have a good Easter.

STOP TURNING TRUMP INTO A DEMENTED CLOWN, if you don't like him don't talk about him.

Human nature has many failings.  We expect too much loyalty. Are you pure? Before nagging each other check your own territory before you make judgements on others. There is a fabulous saying "No good deed goes unpunished?" Enoch Powell is being proved right, a little later than expected. As for Sadiq Khan's ridiculous and irresponsible comment that terrorism is "part and parcel" of city life,  he should stand down.

Trump, can be blamed for nothing except his efforts to make America great again and fifty percent of the people in America still want to see his downfall. They can't wait, it is disgusting as it is disrespectful. If people think they are kind by showing his tummy hanging down, or his hair flying like electric fluff, or his tie, sellotaped.  think again, the strangest people are cruel, they should take a good look in the mirror.   Trump  is clever  allowing others to turn him into some demented clown, but he is President and they are not. He even paid for the insults more than Obama and Clinton who just stole.  It is all so predictable. As yet he has done little except try harder than most, in the shortest time,  to get America moving in the right direction against all odds as they are essentially bankrupt. This would not be so bad except it doesn't apparently suit the supposed Illuminati, the naive,  the Pizza Lovers, Rachel Maddow and CNN which I used to listen to.  It suits those involved to celebrate Trumps failure. It is so unimaginative.
Instead perhaps be proud of your President who invites change to things that do not work?
Despite the qualifications of Clinton and Obama, they managed to break the law and make numerous mistakes. Why not try someone else?

OBAMA's real birth certificate. 

As for spying on everybody, I really don't get it, everyone is spied upon, it is not realistic to think otherwise. From Facebook to MI5/FBI they know our profiles and if they choose they can know our intimate conversations,  so why the surprise? Oh the Russians must be so amused listening to Hillary's fowl temper and Trumps optimism. From Edward Snowden to
Assange, we have all been told. As for James Comey how can anyone tell so many different stories and not be in jail?.

Is anyone telling the truth I wonder?  How important is truth? People are frightened of change and the unknown. The media thrives on fear and destruction, left wing liberal values,  as they get more readers.  It is becoming an horror movie. Trump of course feeds all this. He loves outrageous behaviour, being  controversial is his winning ticket, and the press love it in turn selling another million newspapers. Don't think for one moment everything isn't carefully thought out to provoke. There is no bad press, anything said is better than nothing at all.

I arrived off the plane this morning and entered my chauffeur driven car, collected by someone who looked a Muslim. I said I am sorry, but are you a terrorist, or are you Hindi? He laughed and said indeed he was Hindi and promptly talked about Buddha. He then said don't worry about Muslims they have beards.  It was all politically incorrect but humorous. Everything can be solved through laughter, If however you want to use knives just fuck off, we are all trying to get through life.  In my mind if you decide to kill somebody you should be killed. Why pay for the cost of keeping someone who murders alive?. It is not that anybody was surprised about yesterday and the violence of Khalid  Masood, we were all waiting for it.  The rest of Europe and America have these instances all the time.
The man yesterday who murdered several innocent people was indoctrinated with old fashioned ideals and blindly loyal to things that don't exist. We in turn should not be so avaricious. Stop the use of oil when there is little necessity. We are all at fault.

AT THE SCENE OF THE CRIME and the woman in a hajib on the telephone walks past not helping, she later complained of trolls...

I haven't written for a month I needed a rest from having opinion. Brexit and the USA elections exhausted by most peoples reasoning I disagreed with 50 percent of the planet. Not that I cared  I just had got my way and needed a breath of fresh air. Falling asleep to Alex Jones was going to wreck my love life  even though I find him amusing.

Instead I have spent time in the woods and mountains .  From accumulating I wish to be free.  It is that time of  life when I am enjoying off loading  drama.. The mountains of Althausee bring purity that is addictive. I shall feast on that instead of the murky hidden stories in the very torrid guilty press, that make everybody so much more interesting than they really are.

Do you remember the time at breakfast when newspapers were read instead of the computer, Facebook  and the power of the blog?. In the grander houses in England the ironed newspaper, prepared by the butler, broke the silence as we crunched on our toast and scrambled eggs, occasionally a sigh or tut tut was heard if the news caught our attention.  I remember my Father saying there was truth on about the 8th page usually hidden, he was the journalist and writer Anthony Cave Brown.  There was always a problem with truth and lies, and every newspaper has compromised articles depending on its politics. In the old days the Editors head would roll if he got the election wrong now they stay and irritate the opposition. There are simply not enough jobs for all those supposedly qualified to work in the industry. Ten years ago I set up this blog on the back of the knowledge that print days are nearly over. They are merely now a vanity project for their owners, they are expensive for the environment. They report what their boss wants and they neglect integrity which could go against them. After all they wish to keep their jobs in a world where there are few. A journalist has always had a scurrilous reputation  but now in England they form a psuedo elite having been educated in our finest Universities. Their papers have  puffed up opinions maybe articulately put but they are out of date and ready for the coffin.
Their lack of reasoning and ability to see into the future for either Brexit or Trump showed appalling lack of judgement in my opinion or most likely they were trying to persuade the nation to Remain and vote for the most corrupt political family of all time The Clintons. To me it was all obvious. While the Main Stream Media were still screaming using quills "Read all about it" there are the youth below the line investigating.
Why would the white Working Class of Great Britain and its Commonwealth, not rise up and fight against more globalisation and cry for their lack of employment and gloomy future. These are not money men working the day markets these were not the immigrants in the East End, these were Celts and Anglo Saxons giving their warrior cries. Why would they like Europe? They never did. We are suddenly meant to trust the Italians, believe the Greeks who never paid tax, like The Muslims that have taken over middle England, to like the French who want their food to be better than ours and join in with the Germans who wanted because of WW11 guilt to house millions of refugees.
The truth was there in the form of lone brave writers hidden in independent Blogs, like Alex Jones, Infowars, Stefan Molyneux, End of Times, Exposed truth,  Breitbart, Milo Yiannopoulis etc taking risks where mainstream media dare not go.
Mr Podesta now takes a job as a journalist at The New York Times only discrediting it further and  where he can be the master of disinformation, along with his brother who writes at The Washington Post, another brother works there as a photographer so in positions to relay the news they wish to be out there. Skippy,  Mr Podesta's alter ego will be hidden.
 The top list of Newspapers all wrote about the benefits of globalisation and neglected the benefits of a spray tan and a willing bank account.
