“The society which has abolished every kind of adventure makes its own abolition the only possible adventure.” Paris, May 1968

Have you heard, it's in the stars……….

In these difficult times with the NHS groaning under the strain of budget cuts, an ageing population and  every kind of neo-con privatisation project under the sun, it's good to hear of at least one politician who is not short of a helpful idea or two. Old Etonian Tory MP David Tredinnick is a hard act to follow and no mistake. Treddinick reckons that in some way that is clearly beyond my ken,  astrology could shave millions of pounds from NHS expenditure. You might wonder what someone who has previously come out strongly in support of reflexology, astral projection, cranial osteopathy, aromatherapy  and homoeopathy is doing sitting on both the Health Committee and the Science and Technology Committee but such are the wonders of the Westminster Village.
………….next July we collide with Mars. Well did you ever! What swell party this is.
