It’s a problem ain’t it. It’s easy enough to create a bread for a special occasion: St David’s Day, St Patrick, The first Barack Obama Inauguration, Wales Grand Slam last year. But what do you do when someone like Thatcher dies? Never mind the fact that no one’s going to buy Dead Thatcher Bread, or what it would be like anyway, what is there to do at any level? I don’t have a secret supply of fireworks for the occasion (don’t do fireworks in any case), no stashed bottle of champagne.
I drank some white wine a bit too fast, played the appropriate tracks from The Beat, Elvis Costello and The Specials. But politicians of all parties have carried on her work of destroying any sort of consensus we might have had about being an inclusive caring society and I think I’ll move onto the red wine now.
