Would you look at that floozy in the first photo. She's showing enough breast to attract a new mate or a hungry infant. Anyway, a friend of mine used to say there's enough money in the world for all the needy people, but there's not enough money in the world for all the greedy people.
First statement, boak.Second statement, the capitalist system summed up; in one sentence.
Oh please, Gerry... Actually there is a very strict dress code for me which is imposed rigorously by the Squeaker. There seems to be no such code for the women.As far as I'm concerned people should be able to dress they way they want, I guess within the limits of decency, which I think Mrs May passes in that case...The second part of your post is just brilliant. Absolutely!
I'm so bored of hearing about food-banks, almost as bored as I am of hearing about 'indyref2'... change the record...
Oh well, we'll stop talking about them then Dean. Never mind the million or so people who are using them to eat, just as long as we don't bore you.
Oh I agree there mate. Except its Royal sycophancy with me. Oh, and cricket. Oh then there's SNP baaad stories. I really would go somewhere else if I was you. That's what I do - with the TV, the newspapers, the MOT radio stations - go elsewhere.Try it for a while, going elsewhere. You won't be as well informed, but when has being well informed mattered to any debate, eh?Saor Alba
Like Dean, I'm bored of hearing about foodbanks. Maybe for different reasons. Like you, SA, I'm fed up hearing about the English health service (or what there is left of it). I'm fed up hearing about the English Education service (or what there is left of it). I'm fed up of the royals, and of hearing that not one single VIP had anything to do with sex crimes, despite all the evidence.I'm sick of hearing about how important Britain is and how they punch above their weight everywhere, while some people here starve, and while I pay for yet another cv joint on my car because of third world roads.There's so much stuff I'm fed up of...
Dean, just be glad you don't need the services of a foodbank, we know your a a Tory, and proud of it. Change your own record, and try to cultivate a social conscience.If you don't like the recurring themes, don't read them, no one is forcing you to visit the republic.
I'm bored too,Dean. Bored listening to the Tank Commander and her pie-in-the-sky dreams of a Tory dominated Scotland. Bored listening to a Labour leader with the IQ of a coconut and a personality to match. The bus driver fae Kelty doesn't bore me, Ijust switch off my hearing aid.
I suppose if we don't talk about food banks, tax evasion/avoidance, corruption at Westminster, tax give away's, the English NHS sell off, a seemingly endless list, we can just pretend that its not actually happening. It does not fit with the Great British everything narrative though, so silence would suit WM very well. Which is the very reason we need to keep talking about them.
Yep, pretty much. The one thing lazy and self serving politicians hate is people to notice stuff. Political engagement is the absolute pits for them.
PS: It's a beautiful day...are you off out doing your thing, Golfie?
Stuck at home today doing my chores, which I am supposed to be doing just now, don't tell anyone.
Not a word!
Choked on my coffee yesterday when I heard DC say he was worried about the poor, then I nearly swallowed my tongue when JC said his party was equally worried. I think most of us here apart from Dean, have looked on Westminster's works and groaned. Opposition who does not oppose and a Government looking to see how far it could push things. Noticed that the new ahem Dept of unemployment and non payment of anything is the product of a Welsh single mother, why on earth is he a Tory? Said this to my Hubby who said he will be like all the rest sociopaths. Helena
He sounds like a nut job to me. All over Twitter last night that he says that gay people just need to pray hard to be "cured".Maybe he'll institute that policy for everyone. If you're disabled, all you nee dot do is pray hard. So you have to turn up at prayer meetings to get your payments. If you are late or don't pray hard enough, you are sanctioned. We are run by loonies.
Loonies have a chance at being cured sociopaths are much worse as they appear to be normal but are secretly plotting chaos. Dave will be in his element now that we have had more of the sma' folk hurt, funny how our masters all manage to avoid it. All right wing governments need an external enemy or seem to. Looks like we would not get any money Tris, not into that praying or as we say in my house talking to you imaginary friend. Helenap.s good on Nicola she told them right enough.
I'm Ok about the physical act of praying... I just haven;t got a clue who to pray to.When it comes to praying though, I think Tories are a bit better at spelling it with an "e".
britnats in Scotland love being ruled over by rich tories. britnats in Scotland know their place.
TBH I've always been horribly bad a knowing my place.I suppose that's why I'm not a Britnat.
We can say what we like but the fact is that England continues to vote for Thatcherite political parties who determine policy in Scotland.Maybe the devolved welfare powers will give us the ability to form different policies but that will be predicated on having the funds to support them and as long as creatures like Osborne have control over our budgets,I will be sceptical about the outcomes.
TrisThe Government are in a real mess. There is a part of me that thinks that they won't make 2020. The pressure is going to mount, esp. over the EU and the economy. I don't think we are being told the truth regarding any of the economic figures and I really do think that the posh boys are in trouble. I suspect they are relying on the city and house sales, if there is a minor tremor in the world economy I think they will be found out.They are a shit government though, certainly the worst in my lifetime and it is really annoying that it has taken now for many, esp. down south, to see how bereft of competence and decency this government is. I bet there are many that really regret their vote last year, but saying that Miliband was unelectable and Cameron played the racist Scotland card well.I'm not surprised Corbyn is starting to do a bit better in the polls, I don't agree with a lot of what he has to say, esp his total lack of knowledge about Scotland which is poor, but his calm and steady approach looks like it is wearing Cameron down. Every time Cameron insults rather than answer a question and Corbyn just looks at him it's another nail in his coffin but this Government is shit and I pray they fall before it's too late for all of us.Bruce
It's a good point. What do you do when the government (and this time a single party government) is, within less than a year of election, absolutely falling to pieces?If the UK comes out of Europe, I suspect that whether he likes it or not, Cameron will resign (or be forced to resign), and Boris Johnson will be called to be prime minister. They can boast a new start, albeit with a large part of the party, including some of their big beasts, against them.But after the fight is over, I can see them repairing themselves because, principles be damned, there is glory to be had.If they stay in the EU, I think it will be more difficult to go on with a damaged chancellor seeking to be prime minsiter.He's a laughing stock before he even gets the job. At least Brown waited till he was in Number 10 before he made himself a figure of fun, and we discovered just what a disaster his economic policies had been.Corbyn is picking up support in the country, it seems, even if not in his party. Another party split in two, adn we haven't a clue what they stand for.Are they what Corbyn says they are, or what Benn says they are? And for us, with an election coming up, what does Kezia stand for, or for that matter Ruth.And without wishing to be rude about the LibDems, no one knows or cares what they stand for here or anywhere else.
What on earth is going on with this blog? Is Munguin on holiday? It goes from beautiful soppy Sundays to a photo of four ugly pointless tits...Was Dean bored with the photo of Mundell taken when he crassly stated, without a hint of embarrassment, that he was proud to open a food-bank in his constituency?Incidentally, when is the new museum opening in Dundee? The bloody philistines have still not asked me for an exhibit!
Standards are falling. There is no doubt about it.Munguin has taken a few days at his Monte Carlo residence and Tris has neglected to wear a tie or even do up his shoe laces. What will it lead to? I tell ye, all hell will be let loose when the furry one returns.That photo your talking of with Muddle: was it the one that was taken just before two of Mark's staff asked him why he had refused an invitation to the food bank that DOESN'T pay its management vastly inflated salaries? First Base?The one that was just before he said... "Well, aye" and slid out the back door, without mentioning to his hosts that he was going, wasting the delicious spread they had put on in his honour. At least he couldn't be accused of eating out of a foodbank, using money that had been donated to feed people in need.The one that was taken on the day that I resolved never again to give anything to Trussel Trust, for fear it would end up down the screech of some feather bedded, fat cat, worse than useless politician...Would that be the day you were thinking of?Well, aye...As for the museum... it's starting to take shape. It will be a while before we're needing you to make an exhibit of yourself.You could of course use your creative talents to write something for Munguin. Or we could start a series of articles. "Learn Gaelic with Munguin", which you could secretly write (his Gaelic being a tad on the rusty side).Think about it.:)
Look at Norway and their shocking rate of child poverty. That could easily have been us without the broad shoulders of Our Majesty's wonderful United Kingdom. Oh hang on.......
