Another day in Paradise.

This time yesterday, I was feeling quite despairing about the political process in the UK - the most important vote many of us will ever cast being reduced to Nigel Farage and Bob Geldof cocking about in boats on the Thames.

24 hours later, I would give an awful lot to go back to that.

Lots of people have been retweeting tweets by Jo Cox this evening, the most recent being a picture of her husband and children in a boat on the Thames yesterday. It is unspeakable that while she was doing this, indeed while she was doing anything for we don't know how long, someone had decided that she didn't deserve to live and that the world would be better off without her.

This is a very bad day. How do we make sure this is as bad as it gets?

I wish I knew, but I'm damn sure going to try.
