Number 6

A saunter down Northbrook Street and a pop into several shops today showed that Newbury still seems to be alive and well despite the forecasts of doom post Brexit. Can it be that people are perfectly able to get on with their lives without the interference of politicians and bureaucrats and their over inflated sense of self importance ? Perhaps we don't really need anywhere near as many of these people for the world to function as they would have us believe - think in the fortunes we could save in taxation ? Maybe , just maybe we are at the start of a re-evaluation of how society works - perhaps it will benefit the people, not the elite hierachies that dominate our lives and control our every move ?

The venerable gentleman you mention was also railing against selling the family silver, the nice furniture in the saloon and even the Canelettos.  It's perhaps comforting to know he didn't live to see us unload everything else, including the park and we've just remortgaged the house.  Still, we've got a bit of cash whilst it lasts.
