Slow to anger


I’ve noticed an interesting change in opinion on the Libertarian Blogosphere lately, and for that matter the populace in general. Around the time of the election the thinking was, that maybe there was hope for change and we could forget about expensesgate because we would have a government that would listen to the citizens.

At first all was well, as most people will give the benefit of doubt to a newly elected Government. This attitude has now changed as bloggers see that this government is no better than the last, and in some cases equally as useless.

It’s begun to dawn on so many people, that most politicians are only in it for the money and prestige, and couldn’t give a fuck about what the man in the street thinks or wants. Why do they not realise why voter participation is falling by the year?

What interested me last weekend, whilst I was staying at my Brother in law’s house, was how attitudes are changing in the general public. Five years ago my Brother in Law and his wife were both Guardinistas (SPIT) and embraced the liberal left consensus . Today they read the Torygraph and question that paper’s credentials as being too weak and unquestioning.

But I’d better get back to the point of this post. I’m seeing a swing in the Blogosphere away from let’s unelect them to actually having them swing from lampposts. If the blogosphere is representative of at least a small number of the populace, then there are interesting times ahead. It takes a while for the average man in the street to get riled, especially when they are subjected to the insidious output from the Brainwashing Broadcasting Corporation, but the penny will finally drop.

It amazes me how shallow our wankers betters, in the Westminster bubble, both politicians and media are more obsessed with attacking News International, than  the slightly more important  subject of a global financial melt down which could come our way in the very near future. It must be a very opaque bubble indeed.

Why don’t they realise that they will bankrupt us with utterly stupid and ruinously expensive green energy policy?  Adding more to the household bills of those who can least afford it.

Why don’t they realise that their attack on civil liberties such as the smoking ban is now fostering a smouldering hatred of those who voted for it, without thought of the consequences?

My prediction is, that in time, when the true scale of the situation becomes apparent (And it may be measured in months or years) there will be a revolution against how this country is run and it won’t be pretty. The people  of this nation have been slow to anger through the ages but when they have……………………….

Care home?

No  not for me.  I'll be checking  into a Holiday Inn!

With the  average cost for a nursing home care costing  £188.00 per day, there is a better way when we  get old and too feeble.

I've  already checked on reservations at the Holiday  Inn.

For a  combined long term stay discount and senior  discount, it's £59.23 per night.

Breakfast  is included, and some have happy hours in the  afternoon.

That  leaves £128.77 a day for lunch and dinner in any  restaurant we want, or room service, laundry,  gratuities and special TV  movies.

Plus,  they provide a spa, swimming pool, a workout  room, a lounge and washer-dryer,  etc.

Most  have free toothpaste and razors, and all have  free shampoo and soap.

£5 worth  of tips a day you'll have the entire staff  scrambling to help you.

They  treat you like a customer, not a  patient.

There's  a bus stop out front, and seniors ride  free.

For a  change of scenery, take the airport shuttle bus  and eat at one of the nice restaurants  there.

While  you're at the airport, fly somewhere.   Otherwise, the cash keeps building  up.

It takes  months to get into decent nursing homes. Holiday  Inn will take your reservation  today.

And  you're not stuck in one place forever -- you can  move from Inn to Inn, or even from city to  city.

Want to see  Scotland?  They have Holiday Inn there  too.

TV  broken?  Light bulbs need changing?  Need a  mattress replaced?  No problem.. They fix  everything, and apologize for the  inconvenience.

The Inn has a  night security person and daily room service. The maid  checks to see if you are ok.  If not, they'll  call an ambulance . . . or the  undertaker.

If you fall  and break a hip, NHS will pay for the hip, and Holiday  Inn will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your  life.

And no worries  about visits from family. They will always be glad to  find you, and probably check in for a few days  mini-holiday.

The grandchildren  can use the pool.

What more  could I ask for? Can you see a flaw in my thinking?

Stony Stratford–The end?


Well maybe. But I’ll be waiting to see if councillor Bartlett tries again on September 20th.

Councillor Paul Bartlett's smoking ban proposals were the main item on the agenda last night at the Stony Stratford Town Council meeting.

Members of the public were invited to speak on the matter before the proposals were voted on by the Town Council.

Councillor Paul Bartlett's motions were later rejected by the Town Council. Nobody present was prepared to second either of the two motions that were on the agenda for the meeting. As a result, the proposals were discarded and did not need to be debated on further by the Town Council.
