It is now less than four weeks until myself and Brokerman Dan try to walk from Horse Hill to Woodlarks to raise money for this charity which I have backed for 16 years and which does amazing work as you can see HERE. Dan is far fitter than I am and sent late night texts on Friday saying that he had managed a 21 mile walk but was a wreck and needed a lighter rucksack. I know it is hot up in Manchester what with all those fires on the Moors but I think he is kidding me. It is all psychology. My plan was to do 26 miles on Sunday.

Please do not get me wrong, the Shadow Home Secretary is very stupid and wrong on almost every issue going. As a type 2 diabetic myself I cannot forgive her for using her diabetes as a reason to dodge the heat of an election campaign, it gives the wider population a bad impression of her fellow sufferers. But this morning on the radio the old bag was being interviewed and I said to myself "spot on Comrade." I never thought I'd find myself saying that.

For every safe seat, and 80% of all labour and Tory seats are safe. there is a line as long as your arm of folks begging to be selected. Much though MP's bleat about their poor pay (they are in the top 2% of earners even without expenses fiddles, second jobs etc and anti social hours (outside 30 weeks holiday a year, there is no shortage of hopefuls for this cushiest of jobs. Yet the pampered bastards who perennially forget that they work for us not the other way round, always want more special treatment.

I really do not understand this type 2 diabetes. There was I celebrating several days within a normal range of 5-7 and I woke up in the sevens. That was bad enough to prompt me into leading a very blameless day with a normal breakfast of a bit of bacon and eggs and a very modest lunch of fried zucchini. I then worked up a great sweat with hard manual labour chopping frigana at the Greek Hovel. And thus by eight PM, pre-swim my blood sugar reading had plunged to ...WTF?

Apparently shadow home secretary Diane Abbott is unwell. It must be true becuase Labour says so. That is why she pulled out of an interview with the BBC's Woman's Hour this morning. It has nothing whatsover to do with her latest utter car crash interview on Sky last night HERE and the fact that she is a total liability. No. Labour says she is unwell and so that must be true.
How will this country cope

This is not pretty. Commie journalist Paul Mason says that Diane Abbott is only criticised by nasty racists. Au contraire. She is criticised by all and sundry because she is too lazy to do her homework and too stupid to understand her brief. This interview with Sky is a total car crash. Does anyone seriously think that this woman is fit to be Home Secretary by Friday. I know she shagged the boss but is there any other reason why Jeremy Corbyn has not fired this useless old bag? If Labour thinks she is fit for a high office, or indeed any office, it is 'avin' a giraffe. Watch this and you just have to vote Tory.

This is a human tragedy, it is a mass murder, the story is of shattered and broken lives. However there is still going to be a General Election on June 8 and it is a legitimate question: will this attack make an impact? The answer I suspect is that it will though folks may consider it tasteless to speculate about it, it cannot be ignored. Terror attacks are just not good news for Jeremy Corbyn.

Our in-house remoaning, money tree-worshipping, metropolitan elitist, Darren Atwater has posted an article suggesting that Labour's manifesto maths adds up. Maybe Diane Abbott and Darren think so, but no-one else will be fooled.
The trouble with socialists is that eventually they run out of other people's money. So said Margaret Thatcher. She was right.
Labour promises to spend an extra £48 billion on various schemes and according to Paul Mason (ex BBC, ex Guardian, ex Communist Party of Great Britain), shadow chancellor "semtex" John McDonnell has identified £52 billion of savings/new taxes to pay for this. Mason, like Atwater, is either naive or stupid or both.

The launch of the Government's obesity strategy today sees all concerned spouting self righteous and sanctimonious waffle. What you stick into your body whether it be Krispy Kreme Donuts, cigarette smoke, vodka or the todger of a bloke you have just met in a lavatory on Clapham Common is your own business. It has nothing to do with the state.
Those on the left such as Jamie Oliver and that walking advert for healthy living that is Diane Abbott are today

So what. Jeremy Corbyn was newly single. Diane Abbott was single. It was 1974, a lifetime ago. Yet the Tory press is in a frenzy revealing details of what appears to have been a brief affair. So bloody what?
Clearly the Tory press has known about this for a while and has been saving it for the “right time”.
Personally I have rather more interest about who exactly the then Tory leader Mr Edward Heath was bedding at the time. His trips to Jersey on his yacht are – arguably – of greater national concern than Comrade Corbyn entertaining Ms Abbott on a romantic tour of the tractor factories of Eastern Europe. The Tory and mainstream press seem rather less concerned with Heath's sexual adventures.
Pathetic is a word that springs to mind. Boring and banal are two others. What a pathetic country we have become.

Britain is getting fatter. The strain of treating a stack of lardbuckets like myself for diabetes (my issue), heart attacks, etc is a very real financial burden. All of that is a given. But calls to ban Frosties ( Labour health spokesman Andy Burnham) and Fried Chicken shops ( general lefty fruitcake and a bit of a lardbucket herself, Dianne Abbot) do not address the problem. Prohibition never works. It fails with drugs, it failed with alcohol in 1920s Chicago and it will fail with Frosties.
