I don’t know if anyone out there is interested in this?
Our government just lost a vote by a massive margin. Our Prime Minister has failed to get her argument accepted and the country does not know what is going to happen.the vote was 202 for her and 432 against her. There must be a chance we can ditch it and start trying to improve the situation. I think we have got to realise how patronising other countries must think we are. We seem to think everything is about us. Shouting loudly at foreigners and treating people who want to come here with contempt.
Not everyone feels like that. Some of us want to embrace Europe and the rest of the world as part of the human family.
I just hope we can get the mess sorted out. We need to care more about people and less about money and greed.
New year, new threat of rent increases in the studios. Not by the cost of inflation, but possibly by 25% or more! Im not saying where I rent, and I’m not publishing this on FB. I’m just worried I won’t be able to afford it. The fear is that I will retreat back to home and have to give up my dream of being an artist. The increase would possibly mean people looking for cheaper alternatives.
The threat is not clear yet, some people are hoping for lower increases. Its just that its a blow for a little thriving community of creative people. I sometimes think that greed is at the bottom of everything. So frustrating.
