So what does the name tee2i mean?

Well it's shorthand for the independence index. This blog takes independence seriously. There's no problem, in principle, with a country being part of a confederation or partnership, the UK is part of NATO. But the EU is a failing confederation and our independence is threatened by continued membership. But there's more to politics than the EU. Neither is politics all about leaning left or rightward on any issue, it's far more subtle than that. It's all down to the quality of life so let's aim high. It's our right to do so.

The race is on:

Dursley Pedersen bicycle
Dursley Pedersen bicycle Not so many weeks ago in a radio interview the present Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, got terribly excited as this year's Tour de France was starting from... London. According to Ken, here was another example, as if it were needed, that London was, under his thumb, doing it right. And then he went on to implore ordinary people to get a bike, to do their bit and 'help' etc. At no time was there a mention of the phalanx of vehicles that follows this event, and the fuel they burn, or the disruption caused.

Every morning at James' Road a man got on and came upstairs. There would be subdued squeals and a dashing about. One day I was sitting on my own and he sat beside me. He seemed very old, quite scruffy in a long beige gabardine mac and a bit whiffy. He seemed to be breathing deeply, his hand shook and kept seeming to hover over my thigh. I would move my leg away and he would put his hand down. Then the deep breathing would begin again and the hand would hover. I realised something sexual was going on but just gulped and kept my legs as far away as possible. I made sure that I never sat in a single seat again.
