    Amen to that Frank. Your best monoloque yet, even if a few degrees off topic . I like to navigate in ethical waters. Good on you.

    I'm very ill and probably on my way out, but I  have been dismayed by the horrors of the Minesota murders and sequellie. I thought we were progressing past all that dark racist sin, epescaly in  civilised state like Minnesota. We have been the same way his side of the pond and stone heroes have come tumbling down(good ridance)The great wealth of Bristolwas pretty well 80% slave trade. Shame on us all. I've seen the corona thing bring the best out of many folk here and the occasionl worst. Culture takes a long time to change. I'm half irish and some of my people celebrated the battle of the Boyne yesterday as if iwas yesterday. they talk the same language as their great great great great great grandparents. God help us all.I suppose a few hundred years is nothing in the great cosmic scheme of things But to us with a brief flicker of life on this planet, we need to do better than this.Bless you all and stay safe. I'm hoping the virus and the Goerge Floyd murder will catalise a better future. Hope springs eternal.

    Francis
