Freddie Mercury – born 73 years ago today

For a Wikipedia page, Freddie’s one is fairly accurate, and if interested you can find it here.

I haven’t posted much on this blog recently, despite the fact that there’s an absolute mountain of historical stuff happening at the moment; not just in the UK and France, but all around the world.

      Freddy, I’m going to address some of what you’ve raised in comments on earlier posts.

By late March of this year the maggot Macron realised that he couldn’t stop the protests by police intimidation/violence and news media demonisation, and so a policy of mass arrests and prosecutions has been brought into play. There’s now people doing serious time for minor stuff they carried out during yellow vests protests.

        I must admit you Continentals really stick to your hatred of your leaders, fair play to you, here in Dear Old Blighty the anew administration is imploding, we are not going to be allowed to have our sacred wishes of Leaving Europe by the double dealing scum members of parliament
        but almost no people are on the streets.
        The Drama is almost only played out in Westminster.
        Liberals are doing really well they have swept up half a dozen turncoat M.P.s over the last few months.

    Fantastic music and fantastic performances, never got to see them live, great pity.
