Tim looks like he’s having a good time now…but the balloons of self-reliance inevitably deflate. We are social creatures…being liked and accepted is what we’re built for…it is where the majority of value in our lives come from.

In my family photo album there are pictures from the 20s of a woman called ‘uncle bob’. She dressed in men’s clothing, and had a ‘companion’. This was a rough industrial town, they were working class, nobody cared. It was her business.
This is why politics is important - the moment you think everything is better today than it was in the past, you let other people take control of the direction society goes in - with you sitting back presuming we’re going forwards.
