Or so we were once told.
The same pundits told us that Jeremy Corbyn has been confirmed as the leader of the Labour Party following a vote of the membership of the Labour party. Or (to be precise) he's been voted in by a whole load of people who have only just joined the Labour party seemingly specifically to vote him in.
I'm sure he means well, but the media have decided against him. And what about this "Momentum" political party within a political party of his?
Does no one read history any more? This is *exactly* what happened to the Labour party in the early 1980s when the party deliberately made themselves unelectable for over a decade.
And I rolled my eyes when I heard that the Pope is softening the Catholic church's line on divorced people taking Holy Communion. The Catholic church *really* are making it up as they go along. There is nothing in the Bible about divorced people and Holy Communion. (I know a thing or two about this - I was once a steward in the Methodist church). In fact weddings in churches only became the in-thing about three to four hundred years ago when vicars started doing them to get the punters into the churches.
I got to work and my phone beeped. An email. My munzee account has been disabled because I've not logged in for six months. Is it really that long?
