Gloom and doom

A Cardiff University academic has declared today to be the most depressing of the year so far - and it has barely started! Apparently, he has used a scientific formula to calculate that January 24 is the worst day of 2005. This is due to the combined effect of bad weather, mounting debt, the length of time since Christmas, failed New Year's resolutions and a lack of motivation.

Well, it is sunny outside, I do not make New Year resolutions, I am about to steal myself to go out and take a very brisk walk delivering leaflets, and my credit card bill has still to arrive, so it is not all bad.

On the negative side listening to Michael Howard and David Davies AM defending the use of the race card by the Conservative Party on the radio this morning has not done much to improve my mood. Political debate is being dragged down into the gutter and that is very depressing indeed.
