Several things crossed my mind today. One was the incredible level of stupidity that I can show. On visiting Sainsburys expensive supermarket yesterday I noted one or two regular items much reduced. This I thought cannot be missed so today I returned for them the intention being to use the 'reward' savings to pay for them. Rewards that used to be worth a penny and are now worth a halfpenny to aid the greedy supermarkets profits. I decided to get one or two other things with milk being urgently required. Not only did I forget the milk, one of the other things I noted on special but I also managed to pay for them before I realised I wished to make use of the rewards, which would have covered most of the cost!
I went elsewhere for the milk later.
I noticed a story that irked me somewhat this morning. A young lass was killed by a speeding driver high on drugs. This happens often and the usual result is a dead person, male or female, young or old, and a devastated family and hurt friends. The usual result is a six or seven year sentence, with early release usually half way through, and a return to the free world. Commit a financial crime you will be giving a longer sentence! It irks me that the death of an individual means so little today. One senior judge a while ago claimed murder should result in no more than a ten year sentence! The NHS has killed seven million children in abortions, old folks are left to die in many hospitals, care homes with overworked badly paid staff failing to do the job, human life appears to be worthless today. Will the new government of whatever sort make any difference? No!
The election desperation from the Conservatives is revealed with a return to Thatcherism stupidity. How do you help the housing shortage? You allow people in
I canny bring myself to comment on the blatant racism that they offer in suggesting Scots MP's would be barred from voting on tax deals in England even if they affect Scotland. More pandering to racists.
