Lucid

Lucid dreams aren't necessarily any more cogent than ordinary ones- it's just that (a) you know you're dreaming and (b) everything is clearer than usual. Last night I was drifting- flying actually- through a random landscape, having random encounters. There was a bookshop, there was a church, there were grassy hills coated in transparent ice- and the last thing I saw was a woman in a long black dress standing on the ridge tiles of a distant roof. I was sorry it ended. Lucid dreams are fun. I wish I had them every night.

Political Capital

But if you attack the PM for making political capital out of the London Bridge attack aren't you guilty of doing exactly the same thing?

That's a genuine question. I'm not sure of the answer.

Is it a sufficient defence to say, "Well, he started it"?
