Well, that was an interesting G7

Jun 11, 2018 - 4:14 AM - by Clodhopper
I couldn't let it pass without some comment. It would be hilarious if it weren't so serious.

Trump can't cope with democratic leaders but he seems to do better with dictators. Maybe he'll get somewhere with Kim, who might just be trying to get out alive with his fortune. They have a lot in common after all - total corruption being the main thing.


It's noticeable that after 100 years of revolution and oppression, Russia has ended up with a Czar again and... [Read More]

Brief Excursion

Being half term I thought I might take the boy to Amsterdam for his seventh birthday. Cheap Easyjet flight out of Stansted, one-room cottage near Schiphol, just the thing.

Off we set on the train, a bit of a look at London and out to Stansted for an early Sunday flight. The night was like the blitz with explosive thunder, we got to the airport and everything was cancelled or delayed. No fuel for the planes, the fuel depot had been hit by lightning.

When Easyjet... [Read More]

Met Sir Edward Davey, MP.

May 30, 2018 - 4:26 AM - by Clodhopper
One of my lodgers has been really badly messed around by the benefits system, a situation that I have been involved with since October but which got serious much earlier, August at least. It's the usual tale of lost paperwork, left hand not knowing what the right is doing and bureaucratic overstretch but made worse because of my lodger having to reapply for all benefits (Universal Credit...) and being of limited mobility owing to botched recovery from operations 20 or so years ago and owing to...

Are we trying to return to those days of Cold War Glory?

A friend posted this earlier.

An interesting perspective here, and a history lesson.
It seems that we are trying to shrug off the advances of civilization that were a result of the end of the global war, and the building of a "New World Order" spawned by the Cold War.

Brexit makes us poorer

May 22, 2018 - 1:52 PM - by Clodhopper
According to the Governor of the Bank of England as a result of the brexit vote every household in the UK is NOW £900 worse off as a result of the brexit vote than we would have been had we not been so ****ing stupid. I'd like to thank and congratulate every brexiter on their contribution to our personal financial situations and ask them to get on with paying us back for their cretinous stupidity.

A Very English Scandal

spot's Avatar
A few minutes ago a three-part drama based on the downfall of Jeremy Thorpe started on BBC TV. Written by Russell T Davies I had assumed a measure of bias might be likely.

Based on the first five minutes I apologize to the great man, I doubt now that it can be.

Hugh Grant plays Thorpe as though he - the actor, that is - re-embodies one of the Fox brothers. Edward Fox, probably. The performance has remarkably little of Hugh Grant in it but then, Hugh Grant is quite... [Read More]

Dilemma, what to do ?

I am opposed to any NHS privatisation.

I recently declined (pig headedly) an appointment COPD check up by a 'visiting nurse' at my Doctors because when I checked the companies name they were a private Healthcare provider brought in to provide the service rather than the practice own nurse, who gave me the last check up incedently.

Anyway, today I got a letter from the hospital offering a home delivery of my monthly supply of medications. I normally have a checkup... [Read More]

Naomi Musenga death: Emergency operator blames pressure after mocking caller - BBC News

In particular, "The operator's lawyer told BFMTV last week said that she would normally field on average 2,000 calls a day".

Let's try it out. Let's say her shift is 20 hours shall we, just to play safe. 2,000 calls in 72,000 seconds is 36 seconds per call. That's without any lunch breaks,... [Read More]

First the Paris Accord, now Iran.

Events have taken an interesting twist with this Tweet from the EU president, Donald Tusk:

"Policies of @realDonaldTrump on #IranDeal and trade will meet a united European approach. EU leaders will tackle both issues at the summit in Sofia next week."

Are we about to see Europe refuse to impose the newly-announced US sanctions on Iran? And if it does, will President Trump take countermeasures against... [Read More]

Sir Vince claimed: “These results show a return to three party politics and a strong future for the Liberal Democrats. We stand as the only party fighting for an exit from brexit, and are making gains against both a Conservative party driven by their right wing, and a left wing Labour party absorbed by Corbyn’s dated economic
