More Random Irritations

February 27, 2018

1. ‘The Beast From The East’. Couple of centimetres of snow and the country goes into panic mode. Driving around today was totally exasperating, people were either oblivious to the slippery conditions racing around as usual, slipping and sliding into ditches and telegraph poles or refusing to go faster than a snails pace. Then the media coverage. ‘Cold kills’, advice on how to stay warm, if you are going into town take a winter warfare survival kit with you in case you break down that sort of thing. It’s a bit of freaking snow for heaven’s sake. Half of our village remained a gritter free zone and some folk thought we were actually in Armageddon because of it.

2. The Customs Union. Corbyn is actually now beginning to really irritate me with his two faced betrayal of the electorate and his volte face on this issue. BUT: I am far more irritated by the Tory saboteurs, the Remoaner snakes in the grass. They and they alone will help that gormless cretin into power. With the 9 or so Tory hardliners who threaten to join forces with him, along with the SNP and the single Green Party seat he would have enough to usurp anything Mrs May put before Parliament regarding a clean, hard break. That in turn could well see her demise. She is reportedly now taking my advice of a few months ago and taking a ‘back me or sack me’ stance but the whole thing is a total mess. It was always going to be difficult but I am now fed up with all the backstabbing, the lack of clarity, the self mutilation and death by a thousand cuts that we are inflicting on ourselves. I believe most people just want a clean break, a deal that lets us trade with who we wish to, the reinstatement of control of our own borders, the return of  sovereignty and adherence to our own laws.

3. The second of 3 servicemen involved in the IFI investigations scandal from 15 years ago is now following in the footsteps of the RE Major who has just resigned from the army. The third one has already left. More teeth gnashing and pontificating today in the Telegraph about how appalling it all is but no respite for the poor sods facing their 8th inquiry and their ruined lives.

Discuss!

1. "Beast From The East" - unbelievable the hysteria from the media, who just LOVE to dwell on the slightest problem. What about the panic buying of milk , bread & spuds, emptying supermarket shelves and stocking up as if Kim Dong was sending over his nuke !?! All because of a bit of snow & cold weather - it is STILL winter after all. 2.If those Tory Remoaners dare to vote with Corbyn's lot they should be hung out to dry, no,   hung, period . They are the main reason for dissent & confusion over Brexit - Labour, with their rapid switching in policy are doing that to themselves. I'm looking to a "Churchill" type rallying cry from TM on Friday, a speech that clearly defines our unwavering approach to Brexit & beyond - am I being more hopeful than realistic ? 3. Another speech by the PM lambasting the IFI and squashing all investigations forthwith, stopping the funding too, would go some way to helping those guys so badly affected serving their country.
