Perhaps, I’m asking too much, but I would have hoped that having had the privilege of naming the general election date, the ruling party would have had its ducks in a row. Well, at least its manifesto ready.

So, another day of patiently waiting and twiddling my fingers and thumbs. 🙂 No Sunday dinner of political meat to get our teeth into. Maybe, we’ll get a national Zoom invitation this afternoon. I live in hope.
