I Salute All Those Who Protest!
Here’s the what’s hot and what’s not list - a few rants and thoughts which came to mind following recent events . . .
I don’t care what you protest against I salute the fact you’re doing it - we need more of it
The anti-cull protesters are doing their bit for the badgers and I wish them well in their endeavours
Here’s a few other things which caught my eye . . .
Badgering those in Charge
It’s great to see people actively demonstrating in this country when they see something they’re against
It’s a shame it doesn’t spread a lot further than animals though
People I this country died so we could protest and have free speech - now we sit and watch TV while it’s all taken away from us!
Meeting People Who Visit the Site
This last week has been a good week for it, have met several people whilst out-and-about
Always interesting people and always a pleasure
If you do see me give me a shout and as always . . . sorry in advance about my crappy voice
The Kitchen Garden
Been a good year this year, much better than last, still more to come but already very happy with some lovely freshly harvested home-grown veg
Martin Cruz Smith’s series character - what a superb set of books, just re-read the lot . . . yet again!
Cowing Down to those in Charge
Assad’s Chemical Weapons
Has he really got them? Can we be sure?
Yes, we can . . . we know for sure - How?
Because Britain sold them to him !!!
We also know the Al Qaida rebels have them as well, amazingly we now appear to be supporting them . . .
Church of England Investments
After attacking pernicious legal Loan Sharks ‘Wonga’ the CofE found they actually invested in the firm.
Now it turns out the CoE has £10 million invested in a firm that supplies arms and unmanned drones !?
I know this is easily done when investing in big corporations but . . .
When you set yourself up as the Country’s Moral Arbiter . . . perhaps more care and research would be in order.
He claims his downfall was all because of the Murdoch Press
Not lying to the police, lying in court and getting your wife to pervert the course of justice then . . .
Talk of Mass Strikes
I note talk of possible organized mass strikes - I also note they seem to include only those in the Public Sector . . .
Being Old and Skint
Being an old age pensioner on your own and relying solely on a state pension in this country is a trial, or rather a sentence for which you got no fair trial.
This country seems capable of flushing billions of pounds down the drain - let’s flush some towards the old, lonely and most vulnerable in, what is, a rich society
Do feel free to comment on any of the above or go as far off topic as you wish - a general free-for-all should the need or inspiration arise
All the best
