The War on Drugs
Attack the supply, not the demand
The War on Obesity
Attack the demand, not the supply
The War on Terrorism
Attack the demand and the supply
And none of them are working!
You are all grist to my whimsy mill

On thursday I mayhave implied (or stated in as many words) that the Lovely Alice was my favourite niece. This may have been done to ensure that she laughed at my jokes. This was in reality an unneeded insurance policy, because I was, as I knew I would be funny.
I woul like to make clear that I do not have a favourite niece, I love all 3 of my nieces equally.
My 4 nephews however, that is a different story, there is a clear favourite there.

Friday BAC Edinburgh work in progress – Josie Long – Something Better.
Something of a return to her earnest political stuff (even though she said she wanted to avoid that). Not that its not funny just not what I think she does best.
Good but could I think be better (and funnier)

Double bill of Edinburgh previews at the BAC
First up Dan Cook – good, reminded us of Joe Lycett
Second Sarah Kendall, very very good, very funny.
BAC replicating that full Edinburgh experience. Hot sweaty rooms tucked away in nooks and crannies of ramshackle buildings.

Simon Munnery work in progress at the Leicester Square Theatre
A new winner for the most work in progress, work in progress. Two weeks ’til the Edinburgh Fringe starts. He managed to stretch to 45 minutes and that was some of the most dishevelled, disorganised comedy I have ever seen. Mind he is always a bit like that. It was still very funny though.

Advertisement in the Observer today urging people to join the Labour Party to vote against Jeremy Corbyn.
As far as we (Investigative Rosie and myself) can work out it appears as though the Labour Party are actively campaigning against their own leader.
Part of the advert says “Save Labour Save Democracy”
I would have thought it obvious that Labour and democracy are not synonymous, nor have they been for some time.
