Hacked Off

Anyone else hacked off at present?Before I start,their may be the odd profanity or two that slips into this blog entry,so if you are easily offended please stop reading now......The river season has drawn to a close,a cold and wet one mostly this passed winter.I did not bother to cast a line,on the last day of the season,minus five on the Wednesday night and I just could not be bothered to drag my arse down the river,it's not warming up either by the look of things before Easter,so bang goes my trip to Marsh Farm.Hacked off with the weather as most of us are.

Now to the "Hacked Off" group,who have pushed for changes in the way in which our news is reported in the media.Two real stand up members of society who have been very prominent in this campaign.Max Mosley and Hugh Grant,take a bow you guys.Not one person can convince me that this campaign is about helping "ordinary" people.Yes it's deplorable that the likes of the Dowlers and the McCanns were subjected to a massive invasion of privacy due to phone hacking.That is illegal,so we do surely not need another law to counteract this? No in my very humble opinion,it is all to do with keeping the underhand acts of our so called celebrities out of the press.Dress it up as you like,but that is how I feel,though our so called stars are not shy in courting the press when they have a film,book or music deal to brag about.

I Blew Hugh

Next up we have the MP for  Paisley and Renfrewshire North Jim Sheridan.Now good old Jim is frankly aghast that "parasitical" political sketch writers are allowed to be in parliament and I quote"I don't know why they are allowed to come into this place?" Blimey Jim your not happy old son are you.Perhaps,just perhaps you and your ilk are still smarting over the expenses scandal.This moral high ground from an MP who claimed  for a 42 inch plasma TV and get this,an ivory leather bed.What a total wanker you are Jim.We can not allow the powers that be in this land,to dictate what we read and how we read it,just to suit them!



The Budget,well that hacked me off too.The phrase"It's a Budget for people who work hard and aspire to get on". Nonsense,who likes to work hard,not I that's for sure.Not one day goes past when the alarm goes off at 04.45Hrs and I think oh fuck this.Most people work as hard as we need to,we do not bust our balls.We do it out of necessity nothing more nothing less.An "aspiration nation",do me a favor.This was a Budget for piss heads,a penny off a pint of beer.If you drink ten pints a night,over the course of a year,you will save the princely sum of £36.50.And the way the MP's laughed and japed yesterday,the country is fucked,but hey it's all a good giggle.Still next year if the MP's get their way we will be viewing a test card and eating insects for dinner.As opposed to getting the news.

  1. Couldn't agree more lover, I dispair at what the UK is heading for in the next few years, we'll be asking Cyprus to bail us out.

    Hey ho, just keep your head down and fish all you can, they'll tax pleasure pretty soon - the bastards, bring back Guy Fawkes.

  3. I read this through and murmured 'hear, hear' like a back bench politician. Totally agree. And as for the weather and fishing et al, well like Hugh Grant would say on his misdemeanors becoming public..."It sucks"!

    You voice a fair chunk of public opinion mate, perhaps a career change is in order. The right honorable member Monty Dalrymple representing Surrey. Has a nice ring to it. At least you can claim expenses against your private box at Stratford stadium come 2015. ;o) Stay warm mucker.

    1. As for West Ham I will come back to that later in the week.Still time to get relegated before the move in 2016/17.

      The other stuff is just common sense I think.I'm also not sure about the chancellors suggestions for mortgages.Clinton in around 1998/89 passed a law to help lower paid workers,enabling them to buy their own properties with very low interest rates,from the government to Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae and that led to problems in the sub prime mortgage sector that created a upsurge in demand before the bubble burst.Could that happen here,I doubt the chancellors idea will ever get off the ground.

      Sure their is a real need for social housing in this country,but should we not help the people of this country first,rather than dolling out council properties to those from over seas as they may seem to be more in need?It's going to be a long while before things start to look up I fear.

      On that cheery note,work is nearly done so it's time for a cupla;-0

  6. Not 'arf Mont. Ill for 10 weeks on and off, 50-60 hours weeks to dig the company out of a hole they created and crappy weather which makes my bones ache due to said illness.

    Bent or stupid I can cope with, bent AND stupid, we're all looking down the barrel. V for Vendetta.

    1. Bob,

      Mr.Cameron today is courting the popular view,when he announced the curb on council housing for people from over seas.He aims to get this directive rubber stamped in months.They all just say things and produce nowt.
