BBC Newsnight

BBC Newsnight commentators are like children trying to guess what the grown-up world is about, chattering nonsense. ‪Evan Davis was in a world of his own as he questioned John McDonnnell about policy at the 2015 Labour party conference. He was all wrapped up and smiling and not even looking at McDonnell. He talked so fast, the shadow chancellor could hardly get a word in. Evan Davis hasn't woken up from the previous groupthink and when he does he will get into another groupthink. He might never have an idea of his own, as long as he lives. Allegra Stratton is even worse and not very bright. All the mateys together. #‎bbcnewsnight‬ #evandavis #allegrastratton #johnmcdonnell

The trophy

It is night and the city streets are dark and crowded. A sort of tournament is under way, which all the people are in. The crowds proceed around a large town square in the darkness. The trophy is on a small table in the middle of the grassy square where all is pitch dark. I go in and take it.  Everywhere is so dark there is no risk of being seen. Someone is with me, but only vaguely. I lead the way around the corner of a building and along narrow pavements lined with police. Maybe we drift apart a little on our way out of town.

There are other dreams

I've been dreaming but not recounting them. Some stay in my mind. I see people I know in some. Others are erotic. Last night two women tried to French kiss me at the same time, and I may say succeeded admirably, one on each side.

Homegrown cucumber
It has lots of little cactusy prickles on it. You can see the flower still at the bottom of it. Here is another flower with a cucumber starting. 

This is how they start.
Thanks to my sister S. for the plant.
