You’ll be pleased to know that this blog post is approved by both my wife and Mr. Whiskers. Yet, I haven’t had a chance to ask Cyndi, my imaginary stalker, if she likes it or not.
A few of my friends will ask “Hey, how come you love your wife so much?” Well, clearly it is because she manipulates me. She knows what motivates me into being a better person. We all know my wife is the better half of this marriage. No one asks me “How are you doing?” But they always ask about her and how she is doing. (Maybe they know she is going nuts because she is married to me?).
One could argue that manipulating your spouse is wrong, however in reality, we all do it. My wife knows exactly how to steer me in the “right” direction. Usually, her direction is the right direction (unless it interferes…
When Tim Harris hands you a freshly made cocktail, you drink it…and you enjoy it…and you order another. Tim is the owner of the Manhattan Cricket Club. Drinks there go through six to eight hours of creative development in order to make it to a very competitive 11-drink menu.

For all her popularity, the Prime Minister and her Government is weak. The official Opposition should be storming ahead. Every poll should strike fear into the hearts of Tory MPS. Yet the Conservatives lead by double digits in every poll. Theresa May’s approval rating sits at +18, whilst Jeremy Corbyn languishes at -20 and with groups more likely to vote this divide only widens.
I can not think of a post-war government that has been more undeserving of its electoral strength and arrogance. Nor can I think of a time when a strong Labour party was more needed.
