Don't close the pool!

Ah no! Bristol City Council are discussing plans to close Bishopsworth swimming pool in favour of a giant sports centre in Hengrove.

I went to Bishopsworth Junior School - we used to walk from the school, hand in hand with our partners, over the traffic lights and across the road to have our swimming lessons there. Then we'd walk back with wet hair, stinking of chlorine to finish out the day's lessons. I remember coming back at least once with no underwear on, and I'm not sure why. Do schools still give out swimming lessons? Anyway, if they decide to close the pool (along with another local pool) it will mean that as a city we're becoming more and more dependent on shopping/leisure complexes and less on local businesses. This will then turn us into the dull side of America: land of anonymous suburbs with no local shops within walking distance, and generic concrete parking lots surrounded by oversized stores and cinemas (which have been creeping in over the last ten years). Bleurgh.

Japan and Tsunamis

While Hokkaido waits for the predicted tsunami, it's very easy to read about Japan's Tsunami alert system and wonder how the hell the US got it so damn wrong with New Orleans.

Bush? Pff. It could be worse.

BNP leader et al cleared of inciting racial hatred. There's so much wrong with this, I don't know where to begin. Just imagine if they ever got near the Houses of Parliament. Just think of how bad it could be.

  • Burn 'n' Violet is a quirky, pretty little design label that I dug out of the racks of TK Maxx last weekend and originates from Manchester. Their labels are guitar picks, the cut and originality of the clothes I found were top notch, and most importantly: they go up to a (smallish) size 16.
