World War 1

November 11th, 2018

I cannot begin to comphrehend the First World War. I have never understood war at all, beyond the occasional need perhaps for two angry men to knock seven bells out of each other to settle a misunderstanding in a pub. I have never ever understood why these differences of opinion have to be extended to encompass entire nations and destroy civilisations.

It’s over.

“This new assisted living centre in East London is designed to protect elderly people from the heat. I went to see one of the flats inside, they’re designed to be cool. Jill and Morris Matthews explained that they have windows on both sides of the building so a breeze can flow through”.

Perhaps the BBC can be persuaded to take an interest in Woods House Pimlico for the benefit of its residents.

Near the Stags Head I met a man who had moved to London in the early 1970s, having worked as a domestic appliance service engineer in and around the old Byker and got to know it all intimately.
