Watching an historic victory

Watching confirmation of a remarkable victory with sleepless and excited kids. The world seems a nicer place this raining autmn day, and reminds me of chuckling at similar news in 1997 this side of the pond. Interestingly though this mesage of change is against a background of challenges, two wars and financial meltdown, not an incipient bubble of ‘cool brittania’: if we can all sustain the work and spirit for reform and progress the world could be a better place.

What better message to be able to discuss with three kids who attend an inner London school – hope, change, progress. The earth for once not going to hell in a handcart. The words ‘we can’ added to ‘we will’.
