A Leave vote does not have to be one to call for the borders to be closed, it can be a call instead to demand not just to allow free movement of workers in Europe, but also to allow in refugees escaping our bombs in the Middle East.

The last couple of weeks have been nothing short of life changing, not to mention busy. As I wrote in my last blog, me and my girlfriend were in the process of buying a house together. Thankfully that all went through and we moved in to our first home together on Friday 19th February.

Not that the sellers are the problem here. Steve and his family found a house to buy and had an offer accepted within 2 weeks of seeing us. Also, their buyer soon moved out of the house in to his parents so as to not hold up arrangements. The problem now, is solicitors.

As with Freshers week, every day was spent drinking and eating some awful food. Of course healthy food is available in Edinburgh, but the Scottish have such a creative range of fried foods that it's hard to resist. Days later, it's me that's feeling battered. Was it worth it? Absolutely.

I won't be joining the Labour Party, but I am part of the wider labour movement. As such, I will be voting for Jeremy Corbyn. I will be voting for hope.

Fingers crossed I'll snare some people in to reading this blog with its almost sexy sounding title. It's fair to say though that 'friends on benefits' is a lot different to 'friends with benefits'. Simply, having a 'friend on benefits' means only one person is getting fucked.
