It rained all day yesterday, the garden needed it. It's supposed to be much better today, but it's actually cold and very overcast.

Sayed up last night and watched Question Time - or rather 'The Nigel Farage Show'. The man isn't an idiot - that would be too easy. He's a dangerous sociopath. He just doesn't get it - he reminds me of Boris Johnson in that he's totally incapable of debate or reasoning - it's all about him, what he says, what he thinks and what he's going to do. It's no wonder that people are already taking bets on Douglas Carswell - the only credible person in the party and their sole MP (more to do with being a well like constituency MP pre defection than anything else) leaving to become an independent as his obvious frustration grows.

Farage and UKIP are a single issue party - many people within the party want to expand to something more general with a raft of policies but Farage can't get past immigration and Europe - it's all he talks about, it's all he preaches about - and his way is the only way, if anyone tries to get a word in edgeways, they get shouted down. He'll never get past his 'pretend' resignation which clearly makes him dishonest and self-serving, and his crushing of any internal dissenting voices who try to talk sense shows what an odious little shit he is. I really hope the whole thing just blows up now and they all fall apart.

Saw my friend who has been signed off work with depression - apparently the 'meds are kicking in already'. That's good.

Worked really hard yesterday - achieved a great deal, however - because of the vagaries of being self employed, I didn't actually earn any money.

I have to deal with a lot of accounting issues over the weekend - seriously not looking forward to it - an overwhelming sense of dread.
