The water gets ever murkier, and the web of deceit ever tighter, the older I get.
At eighty-two, I thought I had learned much of what there was to know about this country in which I was born. No way; I am as one newborn. My eyes have been opened by those who have suffered so much, and been forced to face a future that is seasoned with much pain.
I feel angry that I have spent so much of my life being duped by the Establishment; the very system in which I placed so much trust. This was the system by which my parents lived and brought me up to believe in.
Politicians, lawyers, judges and the police were people to trust and believe in while royalty was sacrosanct – and not expected to cause an accident one day and then drive around in a new car the next, as though nothing had happened – and without so much as a thought for the trauma caused.
Sorry – this is no longer the country with values I recognise, and those at the top are unworthy of respect or trust
