        Nice try Mick.

        Also nice site, I don’t do tumblr but I’m sure you’ll get a good few followers along the way.

        Mr. T, weird that you felt the need to put that here but I for one would prefer you stuck around. It’s over-run with…the opposite of you lately. And too much of anything…

    Nice video, and I have huge respect for caretakers. Many don’t have the option of choosing to help or not and many less well off people struggle to care and to keep on top of their own lives. I would say that the dedication and compassion of this type of labour, as mentioned in video, is tear-jerking. I’m delighted to see that vital care and migration are being conflated, much like access to housing and asylum issues are currently being raised by housing/homeless activists.

    I don’t agree with the phrase, ‘look after our own’. But if I did I would say that my own is people coming from dispossessed backgrounds; from this perspective I share, or have shared much of the angst and anxiety that migrants have to face. But I have strong local connections, family, the right nationality etc which makes it easier for me. It’s been amazing to hear people connecting the issues of work, poverty, climate change, war, migration etc.

      That is all very nice Booby but this post is about Mr. T now. So keep quiet while we try to coax him back in through the cat flap.

        He’ll never leave, none of us will. The internet’s very own Hotel California…

    Strange statement
