Major's Bloody Britain

8.04pm:
 
‘Being Boring’ – Pet Shop Boys

 
Today’s news:
 
Raq and Helen wrote me a letter today, asking me to go and stay with them in Winchester after Xmas.
 
JOHN MAJOR gained 185 Parliamentary votes to become PM today.  Heseltine came second and Hurd came third.  Major actually needed 187 but Heseltine and Hurd conceded.  And though I’ll miss the character – if not the politics (which essentially remain) – of Margaret Thatcher, I guess we must congratulate the NEW PRIME MINISTER – JOHN MAJOR.
