Grumpy Old Men !

April 25, 2017

tried the raving bit in the eighties John and the place got raided, looking for drugs etc ( not my bag )  garage music etc, I think the ravers are now out of the lunatic asylum. It will be interesting to see what happens in France though, Macron marries his school teacher, and is not influenced by her  ho hum, Le Penn has just stepped down from the Front National, oh really, I should say another bomb/lorry/shooting in the next 2 weeks will tip the vote her way, Macron of course is backed by the old school who did not get a look in. Interesting times in the near future. I see the latest apparent idea about the snap election is all to do with the previous election and how many seats would have been lost before 2020.

We seem to have lost our two resident Caladonian grumpies,  namely Frankie and Alfie. The 'inner circle' of grumpies does seem to be getting smaller. You want rants?? I have a plethora of rants just itching to break free from their constraints. 1. The whole diesel saga. It's a con! 2. The state of the NHS. It's a travesty! 3. The SNP being allowed to influence Parliament. It's totally one sided! 4. The anti English nastiness of that Krankie woman. She is a harridan of epic proportions!! 5. Reaching the age of 70 and still paying 40% tax. There has to be a point where we have paid our share!! 6. The state of the armed forces. Really sad, really dangerous for our security! 7. Women who 'trans' to men and then are considered heroes for having babies whilst sporting beards etc. Either or please, otherwise it's just really tacky and rather nasty!! 8. Corbyn. For Labour to find a leader worse than Foot, Kinnock and Brown is some going!! We NEED a credible opposition!! 9. Overseas aid. It simply has to stop. We can't afford to look after our own let alone the rest of the world. Let's not even get into how that money is spent and by who!!!! 10. People who are concerned about uncontrolled immigration being labelled racists. It's a term being misused now with alacrity!! Just ten rants that are harboured amongst several more which I will save for another day!!

Okay you guys ,rants and ranting,and being a grumpy old man mmmmm . What in the last week or so that has really got up my nose ,who's on the top of the Bob Riley's shit list ,it has to be the feckin SNP government for the last decade or so in Scotland. Reason having my cornflakes this morning there was an article about " hunger holidays in Ayrshire,meaning kids are to go to " soup type kitchens " to eat when not at school through reasons of lousy parents/ social services. Instead wanting to have freedom why don't they do there job and look after the most vulnerable aka the kids ,instead hours days weeks running round blaming us "English " for all their woes . Do the feckin job that they get paid a great politicians salary ,they had their chance 2 years ago and lost . Now they have to look after their own as they are duty bound ,instead of flying all round Europe arse kissing the leaders of the 27 ,wasting money on aircraft tickets which could help these kids.

David, our two caladonian  grumpies are I think like myself still putting shoulders to the wheel, so they could still be busy, It will however manifest itself in the coming 40 days. I can only hope that it rains heavily on the SNPs parade on the 8th of June, after 2359 tonight the are no SNP MPs in Westminster Let us hope there will be less after the 8th. Very interesting times in the offing.

You could well be right Bob albeit I seem to recall Alfie is retired, Wee Frankie certainly is still working. There was a flurry of posts from Alfie, balanced and interesting,  then everything went quiet, haven't heard from Frankie for months. The trouble is, at our ages now, any length of time not hearing from someone evokes the feeling perhaps all is not well. Let's hope that isn't the case. As for your thoughts on the SNP, I completely concur, ditto Lib\Dems.

Wee Frankie's alive & well, still working hard, which is one of the reasons he can't participate as often as he'd like - as Arnie once said, " I'll be back !!", and Wee Frankie will be, I'm sure. John (JKW)
