Signs of Hope – A continuing series March 24, 2023

Posted by guestposter in Uncategorized.

Gewerkschaftler suggested this a while back and it’s as good an idea now as it was then. Whatever else those of us on the left need some hope, need some tangible achievements to hold on to, something that gives a sense of how things can be made better:

“I suggest this blog should have a regular (weekly) slot where people can post happenings at the personal or political level that gives them hope that we’re perhaps not going to hell in a handbasket as quickly as we thought. Or as the phlegmatic Germans put it “hope dies last”.”

Any contributions this week?


1. crocodileshoes - March 25, 2023

Maybe not a ‘sign of hope’, but amusing. I was at Lansdowne Rd for the England match. Big guy beside me sang ‘God Save The King’ passionately, tears in eyes. Then cheered on Ireland and was singing ‘The Fields of Athenry’ just as loud. As he told me, from Fermanagh: ‘100% British. 0% English’.
