There is something you do not see every day. Two Champions League games that were worth watching and two which were also exciting at the end! Far too many of these games are either one-sided or plain boring, such a change to see football worth watching. Tonight the Europa Cup does not promise similar excitement so instead I will watch the play-off between Newport and Mansfield Town. This will be better than watching Arsenal or Chelsea bore us. Just a shame we could not see the Scottish play-off last night...
Chatting to the postman this morning hew as happy to remind me the MEP elections are about to be held. His happiness does not arise from a care for or against the EU but instead for the delivery of leaflets for all the political parties represented at this election. The reason he smiles is he gets paid for each leaflet he delivers, it used to be around 6p each in my day, and tonight I noticed there are 8 parties and one independent involved in the elections. Great for postmen everywhere, not so good for us however.
All the usual parties plus 'Change UK,' 'The Brexit Party,' and the 'English Democrats!' I remember scaring my boss by refusing to deliver the 'English Democrats' leaflet as it was racist! He thought I was serious... I did it for the money you understand and the poor candidate did not do very well. There was of course no UKIP around at that time to seriously worry the Tory who would win as the sheep come out to vote for him.
Quite how it will go around this region I know not as while the Tory always wins the Farage scam might make a break through in this region, it is very anti-EU and some of them are terrified of all those immigrants who don't live here and the loss of old England, which has never existed!
If only the BTS commentator would read this....
