I’m starting to think in more detail about what I’m going to do for Death Awareness Week this year.

Last week, I posted my first blog post about the #EUreferendum. 22 February was just two days after MC Wee Davey C had held the first weekend cabinet meeting since the Falkands War, having returned from Brussels in triumph.
Since 22 February, seven months have passed, and the bloody vote won’t take place until 23 June.
Yesterday evening, I still had no idea what this week’s blog would be about. Then, the hand of history reached out across the British Isles….
