There seems to be so much happening with politics in the UK and all around the world come to that, as people are beginning to find money a problem, I’ve heard even retailers in SL have not been making so much. Kat and Laredo in the New London Village have always been up to date with what’s going on in real life with the cut backs in the UK and they decided to put on a demonstration concert to show how they feel. I’ve been getting involved in real life politics too, so I’m devoting some of my time to work there, but I couldn’t resist making my own personal statement to the government when I covered Kat and Laredo’s demonstration for CNN. Of course, I’ve always been quite political, even back in SL when I met a Daily Mail reporter pretending to be Peter Mandelson and voiced my opinions as people round me told me in IM that he was the real Mandelson, either way it had been fun (shame it wasn’t the real Gordon Brown, I just read to my astonishment, that when he was Chancellor and he sold the UK’s gold at the time when the market for gold was at its lowest, he didn’t even use the money for Britain, he used it to invest in and prop up the Euro! Plus Europe have a claim to our gold and dollar reserves since the Maastricht treaty was signed!). The demonstration concert in New London was great as well, because dj Garf Serpente played some brilliant music, so even demos can be good entertainment!
On a lighter note, Hibiscus has installed a game called ‘Greedy’ in her gardens and she and Ed have really got to grips with it. I tried to play it when Brie and Seany showed me ages ago, but I couldn’t pick up what was happening. Well Drax and I decided to learn together and went over to Hib’s place, which is next to mine, and we had a go. Of course Drax shone, running away with the points! but I managed to grasp enough to play the game. (thick or what!). So when Hib and Ed came on line Drax and I went over to play them.
We had a really nice time, but I still gambled too much and lost, it was more lack of knowledge about the points than me taking risks. Drax won again, so he did very well. I had a game with Hib when the others left, but she beat me hands down! I really must practice some more!
