As expected I awoke early this morning. Listening to the dulcet tones of the shipping forecast being aired is a good way to come back into the world. I would have preferred it to be nearer seven mind. I therefore had no choice but to rise, waddle through and make breakfast with whatever was not yet past its sell by date, well not too far past anyway.
My dim mind glanced through the online papers, each right wing nutbag proclaiming much joy over George Osbornes fiddled budget. Each budget day the papers are the same. The majority are ruled by the right wing barons who tell of Conservative budgets as wonderful events that bless the nation. Labour ones are miserable failures. What passes for alternative views rambles on and makes little sense as they merely blame the Tories and ignore faults elsewhere. It therefore becomes a requirement the day after a budget to listen carefully to the many experts who appear offering their tuppence worth to the world.
The net result usually means the lying creature has given money with one hand and taken money away with the other. So it is with George yesterday. An increase in the minimum wage u to £9 say the papers, actually it will not reach that high until 2020, which is five years away and a cut in tax credits (used to bump up the take home of those on minimum wage) which means for every pound George has given he has taken £1:50 or so away. As always the Tory budgets appeal to the 'Daily mail' reader and panders to their beliefs, built on Tory lies in said paper, and ensures the lemmings will vote for the Tory's next time. These are the people who voted to rid the taxpayer off the cost of nationalised industry, Gas , electric, water, trains, buses etc. These are the very people who now happily pay through the nose for these industries because they no longer cost the taxpayer anything, the same taxpayer who is paying ten times the cost he would pay if they remained nationalised!
George fooled the famous IDS, he was celebrating for no good reason yesterday, possibly he understands how many will suffer because of this attack on the poorest? I suspect he has pictures of Dachau on his office wall to cheer him up in the morning.
Another budget, another hoo-ha and the richest benefit with lower taxes, at least those that pay tax, unlike the owner of the 'Daily Mail' who has not paid tax for many years. Housing benefit cuts will lead to homelessness, other cuts will cause many problems to which George answers "Get a job" or "Get a better job" and this from a man who has never had one? He certainly never worked for the minimum wage, never had to find accommodation from a grasping Tory landlord, and never lost his job becasue the boss would not pay the new minimum wage.
The 'Toffs' rule us today and call themselves 'One nation Conservatives.'
I went back to bed after this.
Sometimes I canny understand the selfishness of wimmin! Here is this one, living with a nice, kind, thoughtful man who looks after her every need and yet when eh has some spare time to play a video game with his pal she interrupts him and I suspect demands he speak to her, in spite of him being busy.
How does a normal lad of today deal with such a woman? He puts a few sedatives in her drink and lets her sleep until midday the next day that's what. How kind, thoughtful and caring. Did she appreciate the sleep, did she thank him for his concern, did she not feel blessed that by sleeping and keeping her mouth shut he and his pal could finish this important game? No, not this lass, she ran to the police! Tsk! Can a man not get any peace these days? No, the nasty judge fined him Euros 500.
News from the north east of England includes a 23 year old who saw a 6 year old kick an old man's walking stick. When the 23 year old told him he was was told to "F off" by the kid. he then went to a shop, bought a bar of soap and stuck it in the kids mouth.
The child is known to be 'out of control' probably benefited from his experience. He will not be so rash next time. Would you believe the court took the kids side? Mum says the sentence, a conditional discharge plus costs, was insufficient. I think he should take the soap to mum or make the bint look after her son. I suspect dad will not be available to do so.
England are apparently playing cricket against Australia somewhere or other. Did they not do this last week, or the week before? Does anyone care? A man throws a ball and another man attempts to hit it with a big stick while all around a dozen other men stand idly by watching.
Would digging up the grass and building social houses for the old, the poor and those disabled by life not be a better use of such areas I wonder....?
Time to go back to bed again, that's twice already today. Aint life grand?
