Said no one ever…..
It’s time for a reflection on recent events folks and that means your input too please…
1. Being on holiday
2. Walking the east coast of England- glorious
3. Reading early Len Deighton
4. Having time to read early Len Deighton
5. My chilli harvest
6. My family; rock solid.
7. The changing season, love it
8. Retro, so much better.
1. Politicians, not a fag paper between them
2. Ed Milliband-nice photo of him with arm around guy wearing a ‘dance on Thatcher’s grave’ t-shirt
3. Motorhead cancelling my annual gig
4. BBC journalists, really very poor.
5. Town centres, full of charity shops and little else
6. Not owning a vintage Porsche
7. Price of tinned fish!
As usual the politics of the nation has been getting my goat, whilst I do not support the politics of Nigel Farrage and George Galloway per se I applaud the fact they are prepared to go ‘off script’ and say a few uncomfortable truth’s. It’s time people said it like it is and stopped pretending. I cannot bear mainstream journalism, no opinion can be taken seriously unless it ticks every ’safe’ box. God forbid we would offend anyone ever.
Politicians should stop pretending to know what the nation thinks, labour are saying the attack on youth benefits is outrageous and people support them, when a chef or waiter working forty to fifty hours per week in the private sector is earning £13,000 a year and a single person on benefits can claim up to £18,000 then guess what? They don’t.
