Zeroist Day

imageFor the last 20 years, I have lived in Clacton on Sea – and today it has a politically historic by-election. I also lived for the first seven years of my life in this constituency’s Walton on Naze, having been born there in 1948.

imageMatthew Parris, ex Conservative MP, controversially wrote an article in The Times about Clacton with relation to this by-election: speaking of a place where people are waiting to die, ‘a place of shell suits and death.’

However, there is a hidden aspect to Clacton that, through living there for a decade or two, will eventually be revealed to you. I have tried to adumbrate that aspect by means of this blog over the years, culminating in my recent article here.

The latter is one graffiti left in situ following Tendring Council’s erasure of an original Banksy satirising UKIP. If they had preserved the wall itself that would have been £400,000 to the local economy! This couple on the bench reminds me of the couple Tho and Hataz in ‘Nemonymous Night’ where their sui-subsumation at Earth’s Core was IS as BEING beyond WAS with the novel’s many explicit lobes: a lobe’s central, sadly predictive, doom – not the red herring-catcher H5N1, after all. A surprise even to me.
