Thoughts of the day

Readers, I would firstly like to thank everyone who wore white poppies yesterday (sadly I forgot to get one myself) in remembrance of peace and all those who conscientiously objected during the First World War, as well as those who died in that war.

Secondly, I am very pleased to say that the Green Party of England and Wales' membership has now passed the 25,000 mark, meaning that at the rate we are recruiting members, we could soon have more members than the Liberal Democrats by the time the general election comes around :)

Thirdly, even though it was not binding, as the Spanish Cortes in Madrid kept reiterating, 80% of Catalonians voted for independence in their own independence referendum yesterday, which is a clear indicator of smaller states' desire for greater autonomy in Europe and greater powers, particularly over finance.

Alan.
