|Settle the argument of the Chagossians|
|A fair deal should be given.|
So walking through Whitehall I was slightly comforted to see that protesters were being vocal - one lot talking about Chagossians - a group that had bypassed me up until now -seems they were a bunch of immigrants/indentured labour transported in British Empire days to Islands around Mauritius - the land they inhabited was then ceded to USA for military bases, they were moved on (to Mauritius or UK) and they've not been allowed to return or adequately compensated - hope they get justice!
The other protest I saw was un-surprisingly protesting about Aleppo - not sure that the cure for this will be down to just money - seems that either interfering or not is still having terrible consequences for many civilians.
|A reasonable ambition|

|Exchange is no robbery|
I was in town to see Lord Bourne (my brother) and I managed to meet up with him to do our annual exchange of presents - he very busy with Government issues around care for the elderly versus building homes - not going to be popular which either way you go on a choice over those two - but at least the issue is up for debate.
