It’s that time again… This could take some time.. So hit the link, and put the coffee on! BBR
Have you ever been part of a conversation where the person talking, is talk total rubbish? But you know to put the person straight, will either cause conflict, or will be a complete waste of saliva! Being married, you would think I encounter a lot of this… She’ll kill me for saying that, but never the less, it’s not the case. Don’t get me wrong, my wife will commentate on a football match along with ‘Wrighty’, but the Wife gets a pass on this one.
Let me explain.. Have you ever tried explaining to someone who voted to leave the EU, that it’s costing a fortune, and companies are going to the wall, left right and centre. and it’s costing us a fortune? Or how although what is going on in Syria, Britain can’t afford to spend money on either sending troop’s or dropping bombs, and if Trump is happy to do it.. Let him get on with it? or how all of a sudden, the Head of the Metropolitan Police, finally found out where some of these gangs live, and went on a raid?
I am going to lay my cards on the table here, and tackle a couple of these topics, and give them my perspective. I am just a Guy remember! but I have earned an opinion, I don’t want to ram that opinion down anyones throat, but just hear me out, and write a comment below, everything is up for debate.
Anyone who still thinks that leaving the EU is a good idea, must be having a serious rethink now? I did the math on it some time ago, in another blog, but basically we were looking to save in theory £50 billion a year! We have spent £150 Billion getting out, and we are not there yet? 70% of our trade is done through Europe, which we will now have to pay a tariff, which was previously tariff free! But in years to come we can negotiate with other countries! Who? These countries have always been there to do business with? We didn’t because Europe was cheaper? So why do we think that, its going to be any cheaper doing business with Australia? Do you know how long it take for a ship to arrive from Australia? And whats the Tariff, as they will have us by the short and curlies? As where else can we go?
Do we not think that the EU is thinking… We are going to loose £50 Billion a year, let get some of that back in Tariff’s from the UK, we already get £100 Billion in the divorce bill? And Consider this… Railways! European owned, Buses! European made, partly owned. I could go on.. But lets talk Boarders… Not Ireland! I am not going to upset my Celtic brothers, as they shared the same fate as my parents, on arrival to this country, which I was born, and raised. ‘No Blacks, No Dogs, No Irish!’
Back to boarders.. The other one? Currently our boarder is in Calais, under a rocky treaty with France. Has anyone been across to Calais lately? The camps are back, and there are still hundreds a day trying to hop in the back of a lorry, to make their way to the motherland! These being some of the people we have been trying to enter into our country, and nick our precious jobs in McDonalds! The Minute the French say the boarder starts in Dover, you will see an influx into this country, like you haven’t seen since the ‘Windrush’ arrived from the Caribbean. There will not be a thing that we can do about it, apart from build a wall… Sound familiar?
Now, I admit, I am a remain voter, and I have no other political motive than ‘Better the Devil, you know’ principle. If we had a stronger government, we could of negotiated what we wanted on just the threat of leaving, never having to go through with it.. Surely, thats politics? Not bullshitting the people who voted for you?
I wrote last week, about the gang kids murders on the streets of London. Although we have had a few murders, and one I will touch on shortly. The head of the Metropolitan police, made a series of raids, and mopped up some guns, drugs, and couple of machine guns, with a few of the brothers finding themselves in custody in the process. I am not clairvoyant, but I predicted a couple of weeks ago that there would be major arrests, and most of these murders would be quickly solved. Why? Because these are not gangsters, not master criminals, they are kids, no they are idiots! You killed for fame, props, kudos, to get some form of respect from your gang elders, you dickhead! Why do you think they sent you? Now your in a cell, eating noodles… Whose the dickhead now!
There is an adage ‘don’t do the crime, if you can’t do the time!’ Trust me, no one thinks about that at the time? But these kids go to jail, and have no idea what they are going to deal with. Prisons in the UK, are places of containment, to keep these people away from the public! Rehabilitation has long since been sacrificed, lock em up, and protect the public. Thats fine, but at some stage, these people have to come out, and walk the streets! There is nothing within the current prison system which will help prisoners address their behaviour.. Oh! there is a course, or two.. Which your unlikely fail? I haven’t met anyone who has? The point… These people are idiots, and you need to sit them down, and show them better! Some of these kids are out earning there parents, how you going to be able to show them a different way? What you have achieved thus far.. Promoted a new set of kids, to a higher rank of Gangland idiot.
Last Week and 70 year old man, awoke to find 2 guys burgling his home, he reached for a screw driver, and stabbed and killer one, and the other, as I write, is still on the run. Now, after a night in custody the homeowner was released, without charge. Clear case of self-defence. No uproar there! and rightly so, ‘A man and his castle, and all that!’. The relative of the Murdered man, chose to use a site across the road, to lay flowers in honour of the dead Burglar! Uproar ensued when locals took it among themselves to remove the flowers as they felt it was inappropriate. Now I refer you to the title of this blog… Are you kidding me!! Surly someone in the murdered guy’s family, must of said ‘thats a bit rich’ Do you think that was the best place to lay flowers? Are you an idiot?
I have been burgled, and it’s a shit feeling, and had I caught them, who knows.. But I double dare you to lay flowers outside my house.. I triple dare you! Some people, and I saw the family on the television trying to justify it. He was a father, etc, and deserves to be morned, agreed! but not outside the house he tried to burgle, and ended his life.. I am sure his children will look forward to visiting the scene every year, on his anniversary? Some people!
Spring is in the air, I haven’t really smelt it, but we are heading to BBQ season, and I am in the process of watching the wife plan our annual soiree. Which as usual includes a buffet that could feed all the passengers of the ‘Windrush’ and get the crew suitably bladdered in the process! Alongside a host of DJ’s, We tend to turn our village into party central. With past BBQ’s having guests such as ‘New Jersey Connection’ Ronnie Canada (Drifters) & Tom Glide to name a few. We have to limit the invites, so this year.. We are going to put it on the Radio! So everyone can join in the fun, we are flying in my good friend David Manso, to spin some tunes.
Before I go.. I haven’t mentioned West Ham? I got a text from them.. James Renew your season ticket, prices frozen for yet another year. I again mentioned this a few weeks ago, and that it was unlikely that the board would dare put up prices. Although, some are having to deal with the ‘horns of a dilemma’ I am not so torn. Yes, it’s still the cost of two weeks 1st Class, in the Caribbean with the wife. It is also one afternoon, which win, or lose, the wife and I spend some quality time together. It’s something that I enjoy, and takes me away from my working week, the fact that I can’t hear the wife for 90 minutes is just a bonus, I will have to learn to live with..
You know what to do…
HOLLA AT ME!!
