Just a quick blog to say a HUGE thanks to everyone who voted for Isla.

Let’s hope Isla’s win leads the way for more of the same. And hopefully one day, we can put a stop to the ignorant hate crimes I have written about previously.
I would have blogged about this sooner, but I’ve been on holiday in Iceland.
It’s a beautiful country. They have the Blue Lagoon:
