Er and what does GPS mean ?       General Postal Strike?

And as for the Dutch cheese trader needing to go to London for his permits every few days etc.,  why?  Can he not just get them through his computer and printer for goodness sake? Isn't that what "Online" means , and is for? 

just asking!!!!!

Just watched the Prime Minister's latest pathetic statement. How dare that arrogant misguided woman lecture me and tell me what I want and tell me what is good for me.

She assures me that she will not stand for an extension beyond the end of June. Then again she gave the same assurance that she had no intention of calling a General Election and would, under no circumstances, extend the date of Brexit beyond the 29th of March.

Mrs Snorbens and I have just agreed that we are taking to the streets on the People's Vote March in London on Saturday.

First time we have ever done anything like that.   We are so f***ing mad with what is going on that taking to the streets is the only option.

Well done and good luck to you both. One thing is for sure, you will have ample company with many millions more with you in spirit.

MPs are already getting death threats from right wing extremists as a result of the Prime Minister's reckless words. Not only incompetent but deadly dangerous.

Abundantly clear from the start that a full English Brexit would be fatally unhealthy. A Coninental Brexit would be a bit better but Scotland would be better off skipping Brexit altogether and rejoicing the neighbours for lunch which would be far more convivial without the grouch who constantly argues about splitting the bill and reminiscing about how they once owned the restaurant.

I hope you both had an enjoyable day together with the 999,998 who accompanied you.

However, I suspect that the Prime Minister had the curtains drawn at Downing Street and her ear plugs in whistling a patriotic tune and trying to wish you all and the near five million who have now signed the Revoke Article 50 petition away.

Thank you!  I think we considerably swelled the numbers - we really must get onto our diets.

We didn't make it to Parliament Square though.  If you know London, we came out of the Tube at Marble Arch (north end of Park Lane) at 12:30pm.  The start of the march was at Hyde Park Corner, at the south end of Park Lane, but to minimise congestion there the organisers had asked everyone to come from the north end.

So we joined the back of the march a few hundred yards down Park Lane.  The march started at 1pm - but it was 3pm before we got out of Park Lane!  Then along about 2/3 of Piccadilly, right into St James's, and then left onto Pall Mall towards Trafalgar Square.  Very, very slow, all the way.  We used local knowledge and hit the sidestreets nearer Trafalgar Square, but it was still 4:30 before we got there. Long after all the speeches, and lots of folk were going home.  We were beginning to feel sore after four hours of either standing or shuffling, so we decided not to go off down Whitehall to Parliament Square.  Though I saw on the 6pm news that people were still arriving there at that time.

All ages and types of people on the March.  Everyone extremely good-natured and very friendly.  I'd even call it fun.

As you say, I am sure that Treeza will totally ignore it, but you have to do what you have to do.

I'll put some pictures up in a few minutes - I have some in both camera and phone.

Pictures of crowds are just pictures of crowds, and you can see them on the news.  Here are some of the placards that we encountered.

The lady with the "teuchters" placard is living in London now, but was originally from Helmsdale.   That's meant to be the mountain Suilven in the background.   She said that she met some folk off the crowdfunded bus from inverness this morning, and they looked... well... rough!  Must have been a good trip. 

Finally, here is what the best equipped protestors were drinking from.
