Going Forth is a sequel to my 2nd novel, Pawns

It's 2024, on a timeline that diverged from yours in the late 1970s. In 1990, in Pawns, Pete was in his mid-twenties. He's now nearly sixty. Little Mikey is one of his grandchildren. Life is very different now there are few people left in the world, but for Mikey, it's just how life is - until the family decides it has to undertake a huge expedition.

Congratulations on quadrupling your party's votes in SE Cambs! I was hoping for more Green MPs, but you've increased your vote all over the country, which can only be a good thing! :)

Thank you! :)

A good thing indeed, but very sad not to get a few more MPs. Ho hum. As for the Tories getting majority, even a slim one...heaven help us all.

I actually think he's in a weaker position. The Tory rebels didn't act up so long as the coalition was in place. Now the Lib Dems are out of the picture they'll likely pay more attention to their own self-interest and will be less hesitant to act up. 

But yeah the early signs aren't so good. It just shows you their priorities when the first things they do are repeal the fox hunting ban and get rid of the Human Rights Act :(

Yes, indeed, the majority is pretty slim. And "exactly" is all I can say to the second paragraph.

Hello Coshipi!

Thank you for faving my journal which was the Guy de Maupassant story, The Devil. I've always thought that story shows how down to earth peasants can be, so that the story is apposite on a day when the Assisted Dying Bill was debated. Personally that bill makes me quail. How do you feel?

Do you still visit NottheTalk? Does it still exist? Are you ever on The Senior Common Room? I wonder how things are in that place.

Hoping you and Mrs Coshipi are well. Thanks for your video on sea levels rising. That is another very worrying phenomenon. All the best, Mrs aegian.

I also quail at that bill. The logic is impeccable - but relevant only to a reliably humane species, not a real human one.

I do visit NottheTalk from time to time, yes. Rarely in the Senior Common Room though, despite being actual friends with Andswivel, who started it.

We are well. And yes, some folks don't think about some of the implications of rising sea level - even those who believe it's happening, never mind that it's accelerating, and will do so increasingly.

Thank you or your reply and glad you're both well. I really fear that climate change is going to fast forward and we will have to change our behaviour yesterday. Sadly fracking is very bad news. What we both can't understand is the casual attitude to growing global problems we're all facing. The biggest will quickly hit us - water shortages for drinking and growing food. No doubt you have seen this coming in India. People still seem fixated with so called growth as if the answer to our problems is building more factories where there are currently none, hence degrading the ecology even more quickly.

I very much fear Assisted Dying. I expect that in the not too distant future I will receive a letter saying, "Dear mrs aegian, your entitlement to State Pension has not been recognised. Instead we have made an appointment for you to visit this hospital where your needs will be met permanently."

Actually Fenderstrat started the Senior Common room yonks ago. Andy took it up and started the current one when NtT left GUT. I do miss the old place but currently enjoy an easy life so don't plan to go back. Climate change did not find many believers on that board so it became annoying never getting beyond home base on any discussion. Anyway, hope they're all well.

What do you think will be the implications of rising sea levels and of the slow death of the oceans? Will that be curtains for us as a species?
