still not over the cold. the headache is gone, but the hacking painful cough remains, not helped by the asthma. this means that i didn't get to do the things i wanted this weekend, deeming it better to stay at home to rest. one of the things i really wanted to do was this (ie protest outside the national party conference). i'm absolutely appalled at the proposals that are going to make life so much more difficult for employees, especially for the unskilled or those with less bargaining power.
lots of good posts on this at the usual places. i don't think there's anything much i can add to all of that, so let me just agree with all of it.
i put up a post at the hand mirror last night about my loathing of self-service checkouts at supermarkets, and have had some really interesting and thoughtful responses.
