Plants, Tea and Little Sympathy
What a lovely day! Iwas in Sunniside this morning for the Chapel plant Fair. Its a great event and I picked up some fuschias. After my plant purchasing I had a chance to sit down and have a cuppa with some local women. They were discussing the expenses scandal when I arrived! It was one of those occasions when its a good opportunity to guage the feelings of peoples. There was genuine anger about it all, with the feeling that MPs were claiming because they could rather than they needed to. There was also outrage about the "golden parachutes" that disgraced retiring MPs would recieve (often over £50,000) and support for Nick Cleggs proposals to axe this for those MPs jumping before they are pushed.
