It’s been a busy week, and I haven’t commented on the current political situation because it makes me too mad for words. Maybe I’ll comment this weekend, but for now, suffice to say I’m pissed at all the parties. I thing that the Conservatives remaining in power or calling an election and winning a larger majority is the best thing for the Country right now. It doesn’t matter what your personal bias is, you need to evaluate the economic situation as well. The current administration had been doing a just fine job, and this instability isn’t a good thing.
Today’s Song of the Week comes from the Proclaimers. It’s their hit I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles), and I’ve also included my favorite cover of the tune by Social Distortion.
Interesting but useless fact: while working at Port Edgar, we taught one of the brother’s of the Craig brothers how to sail. At the time I was living in Leith, (not far from the Hibs stadium) and the song I’m Gonna Be comes from the album Sunshine on Leith.
