March 2016

Rather to my surprise I actually finished uploading My London Diary for last month before the end of the month, thanks to taking the last two days of March off, and something of a less active period around Easter – less active that is apart from some fairly lengthy walks with my family.

I was so surprised that’s its been a few days before I finally got around to posting my normal monthly round-up here on >Re:PHOTO, but here at last it is.

There was one huge disappointment – although the cleaners at SOAS appeared to be about to win their case to be taken in-house, the management decided against it, though it is very unclear for what reason. One struggle they and I hoped had been won still continues – and staff, students and cleaners will be more determined than ever.

There was also one victory, or at least a partial one, with Iain Duncan Smith’s resignation. Although stated to be because of he was unwilling to accept further welfare cuts, this is hard to believe. IDS  was personally responsible for most or all of the cuts that have severely hit the disabled and for the vile sanctions regime that have left so many destitute and reliant on food banks, as well as to suicides like that of David Clapson – and many others. But his successor may even be worse.

There are no adverts on this site and it receives no sponsorship, and I like to keep it that way. But it does take a considerable amount of my time and thought, and if you enjoy reading it, the occasional small donation – perhaps the cost of a beer – would be appreciated.
