She likes festivals, cats, Art deco, Gothic literature, clothes,sweet peas, the seaside,the autumn & wine.

She doesn’t like cow’s milk, fennel, Brexit, the Conservative government in the UK,cruelty or massive moths - although that is her problem and not theirs. They're just doing their thing. (Moths - not Tories; Tories are selfish.)

Antifa is not an organisation, it's a philosophy.
