Pontification

ken_loach_slams_the_government_in_blistering_bafta_speech
What is it about so called ‘celebrities’ that they feel they have the right to talk down to the rest of the world as if they are some kind of degenerate mental pigmies? Why do they feel that they are so damned important and that only they know what is right and everybody else is just plain wrong? It makes me just plain angry…

We saw the latest example at the BAFTAs this week when has been, not very good film luvvie Ken Loach saw fit to proclaim that the “most vulnerable and poorest people are treated by this government with a callous brutality that is disgraceful. It’s a brutality that extends to keeping refugee children out that we promised to help. And that’s a disgrace too” he said.

Well, fuck you Ken because as far as I can recall you’ve not been opening up your unused bedrooms to house them so it’s alright for us to be inundated with with the flotsom and jetsom of the middle east just as long as you don’t have to have them anywhere near you.

And here’s some another gem from Loach : “In that real world it’s getting darker as we know. In the struggle that’s coming between the rich and the powerful, the wealth and the privilege, and the big corporations and the politicians that speak for them, on the one hand, and the rest of us on the other, the film makers know which side they are on.” Certainly do, Ken. You’re one of the rich and the powerful, the wealth and the privilege that’s speaking for us! Does this guy actually realise just how bloody stupid he sounds? I doubt it.

And, of course, arch luvvie Stephen Fry had to join in as well referring to President Trump’s furious description of Meryl Streep as “overrated” after she hit out at him during a Golden Globe speech, Fry said: “One of the greatest actresses of all time — only a blithering idiot would think otherwise — Meryl Streep. I would say underrated if I’m honest.” Well, you’re entitled to your opinion Mr Fry as I am mine. My opinion is that all three of you should stop abusing your platform to spout your political claptrap because, quite frankly, nobody really gives a flying fuck what you think!

And while we’re on the subject of two faced steaming hypocrite celebrities, what happened to all those ‘famous’ people who said they’d leave the country if we voted for Brexit? Still here, aren’t they! Just like all the other steaming hypocrite celebrities the other side of the Atlantic who said they’d leave if Trump became President.

Here’s a thought tho’ – maybe they all left after Brexit and came back after Trump? Just wondering…

Buying your first home…

agents
This weeks announcements about the ‘housing crisis’ and the plight of the poor snowflakes who can’t get on the housing ladder has caused me to think back to the ‘bad old days when I were a lad’ and how it was so much easier for my generation. Not.

Here’s how it used to work :

(1) You can’t afford to start with a four bedroom detached house in the same street where your parents live. You have to start with a one bedroom flat in a cheaper area and commute. That’s reality. Get used to it, snowflakes!

(2) You can’t afford to buy it on your own as a single person. In our day you decided to get married and bring two incomes to the table.

(3) You haven’t got a deposit so you have to save for one. This means you and your future partner opened a joint building society account and went without the simple things in life like going out every night with your mates, eating out instead of cooking at home, buying your coffee in Starfucks – that sort of thing. It’s called ‘making sacrifices’.

(4) After three years of saving, you went grovelling to the building society to apply for a mortgage. This was based on joint incomes, not a single income, and you had to prove by saving regularly that you (a) had a deposit and (b) could make the repayments. If you were very very lucky then you could get away with a 95% mortgage. 100% or higher was unheard of! 90% was the norm.

That’s how easy it was for us – which is why it makes by piss boil when I hear the entitlement generation whinging and bitching on about how it was so much easier for us and how they’re never going to be able to afford a home of their own. Reality seems to be something that simply doesn’t impinge on their view of the unfair, harsh cruel world that they’re living in.

In this life, you don’t get ought for nought. You have to earn it like we had to.

Get used to it…!

Fuck you, Asda!

asdas-3-for-10-wines
I used to like Asda for wine. They sold my favourite white at an excellent price and I’d go down there regularly for 6 or more bottles. But not any more because they’ve blown it…

I went down there and bought 6 bottles for £6.00 each. No bother. I went to the till and paid. Then before I left the store I thought “That doesn’t sound right?” and it wasn’t. They charged me £6.98 a bottle instead – so I went to the cashier and queried it. A girl went to the shelf with me and there it was : £6 a bottle so I said I’d been overcharged so gimme my six odd quids back.

“Can’t do that” she says. “Not able to do that on the tills. You either accept the £7 or we’ll give you your money back.” I’m a reasonable bloke. Not her fault. “Manager” says I. “Now please” and out comes some spotty faced kid who is apparently the manager of the wine department. “I’ll check the price” says he and buggers off. Five minutes later, back he comes and declares that the price I’ve been charged is correct and the price shown on the shelf is wrong. Again I’m told accept it or take a full refund. FFS!

“Store manager” says I. “Now please.” “Not available” I’m told. How convenient. “Here’s a solution” I suggest. “Just give me a gratis bottle so I have 7 at effectively £6 instead of 6 at £7.” Seems reasonable. It’s called customer service.

“Can’t do that” says he. “Messes up me stock control.” FFS again! “So” says I holding out a bottle at arms length, “what happens if I drop this and it smashes. How does your stock control handle that?” “That’s shrinkage” says he. “These things happen!” “So let’s pretend it happened this time and we can all go away happy?”

“Can’t do that” says he. FFS! FFS! I’m starting to lose it now! “So” I continues, “do you never have any wine stolen from your store that makes your figure wrong?” “That’s shrinkage” says he. I’m getting bloody nowhere and beginning to think that the major shrinkage is in this idiot’s brain cavity?…

“But it’s £6 on your website” says I, “and it’s click and collect. So if I put these 6 bottles back on the shelf and then go on line and order 6 bottles off your website, I get the same physical bottles from the same shelf in the same store for £6! What’s the problem.”

“That’s OK” says the moron. “The prices on the website aren’t necessarily the prices in the store.” “But it’s the self same actual physical bottles FFS!” “Yes, but you bought them on line not in the store – you just collected them from the store.”

So I’m marched down to the customer services desk where I’m ignored for around 15 minutes due to the queue of similarly pissed off customers, they refund my money and I piss off home without any wine.

What a bunch of fucking idiots…

This is democracy?

brexit-high-court-1
Can anyone explain to exactly why we held a referendum last June if we’re going to ignore it? And can anyone explain to me why the hell the courts are getting involved in frustrating a clear popular mandate?

This morning the High Court decided that the Prime Minister cannot invoke Article 50 without a vote in Parliament. But this is clearly nonsense because Parliament already had a vote when it passed the legislation to authorise a referendum, so other than the expectation that we would do what we were told and vote remain why the hell did they allow a referendum in the first place.

Clearly the courts are implicit in frustrating the democratically expressed will of the majority of the electorate. So why did they do it?

Well, call me suspicious but I’m just a little concerned that the chairman of the judges and the country’s most senior judge Lord Chief Justice Baron Thomas is a founder of the European Law Institute which aims to harmonise law across the EU. The cynical amongst us might suspect that this doesn’t exactly make him unbiased?

All this could have been avoided if the government had stopped pissing about and invoked Article 50 before all this got to court.

So putting all that aside, what next? The appeal goes to the Supreme Court in December. More taxpayers money flushed down the toilet. If May loses that then the next move will be a Commons vote in some form or other.

Will the Commons defy the will of the electorate? Frankly, I wouldn’t put it past them. They’re that arrogant, stupid and unaccountable. But if they do then expect an early General Election, probably next February.

And the most likely result would be to return a Conservative government with an increased majority.

So what’s the bloody point of all this pissing about and why the hell didn’t we just get on with it in the first place?…

French nazis…

nintchdbpict000276934903-e1477261123528

Once in a while somebody comes out with some load of old bollocks that really gets my piss boiling. I mean REALLY gets it boiling. It doesn’t happen as often as you’d think, but it did yesterday. “So what was it?” I hear you asking…

Well,it’s this : There’s this idiot called Clare Moseley. 45 year old Clare is an accountant who lives with her husband Benjamin in a five-bed detached pad worth £700,000 in the Wirral. Very nice too. Clare reckons that you can compare the French treatment of ‘migrants’ in the Calais jungle camp to the way the Nazis treated the Jews during WWII.

She said: “I would not want to trivialise what happened to the Jews because it was so awful, but there are parallels that can be drawn. The way the French people treat the refugees sometimes can feel very much like cattle, it can feel very dehumanising.”

Well, we’ll ignore the fact that our Clare wasn’t even born until 26 years after the war ended and is therefore quite clearly an expert on the nazis. She’s just talking bollocks and has since been forced to publish an apology on her charity’s website Care4Calais.

Here’s David Davies’ comment : “These comments are just outrageous. The French want them out of that disgusting camp and into clean, safe homes. It’s an insult to those who died during the Holocaust and the socialist French government, which is about as far from the Nazis as it’s possible to be.” Spot on David.

Sir Bill Cash MP said: “Some of these refugees have fled truly awful situations, but the French have treated them with compassion. There are real issues to discuss here but ridiculous comments like these only distract from them.”

And the Jewish reaction? Stephen Pollard, editor of the Jewish Chronicle, said: “This comparison demonstrates astonishing ignorance as well as grotesque inhumanity. Mrs Moseley is clearly a very stupid woman who thinks she is being clever. The Holocaust was one of the greatest evils in human history. Whatever one’s view of the Jungle, its occupants are merely uncomfortable.”

This is the same stupid woman who outraged lorry drivers earlier this year by saying that if they didn’t like driving their lorries through Calais and being attacked by migrants then they should “find another job”.

So here’s a question for you Clare : If you’re so passionate about bringing these people to the UK how many have you offered to house in your cosy five bedroom house? None, I’ll bet. And I gather you now claim to live in a bed sit in Calais. How many are you sharing that with. Oh, none again I’ll bet.

Stupid, ignorant, sanctimonious, patronising, self-righteous, hypocritical gobshites like this get right up my hooter…
