It certainly can be a beautiful bounty from belligerence to some; and brutal to impartials; game GOSH

Everyone should have a hobby - the CV favourites films, reading and now watching the telly has turned into them
funny little smart phone/little telly things - it's not just generational - they are physicall too little for the older person
Mans - and now increasingly womans - other main activities are sex and fighting.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord - Good God GOSH
Greece; well in the Eurozone and the ECB; is now turning in the direction of the world bank for a loan.

Isn't gambling great GOSH
Young Nick had made quite a few bob for the bank the year before.
He knew the ropes - don't mention the desperate dopes - or mention the boys and girls in the backroom.
The not so publically proclaimed - the directors/owners didn't have a clue; they just sat back and raked it in.
Will you take your gravy to the grave GOSH.
No future brickie from byker will see the inside of a bank (ordinary) for generations to come.
Not because of the 'new' brick laying robot - cos of phone banking.
Their thumbs will be fitter than a Byker Sands rat.
Bank with me; apped the greedy git with glee GOSH
Digital currency is the new bitcoin.
The royal Mint ( supposed to be on our side ) has just gone into partnership with one of the biggest private equity
outfits on the planet.

Will there truly be - profit for the affluent pleb - crowdfunding in the game GOSH
Bitcoin used to be an underworld activity - it isn't now - have you seen a Brit bitcoin ATM;

Digital currency - a new hybrid of bitcoin - is being pushed privately as a solution to the loan crisis.

UK ancestory in America is voluntarily devolved into English, Irish and Scots - not UK.
The dispossessed/disenfranchised of all colours and creeds voted for Trump.

A week is a long time in politics...
The division in the cons over Brexit and electoral fraud in the form of overspending; are two of the main reasons
for this reluctant snap election call; put forward by the opposition.
The best thing for this country is to get back to making things - not servicing and manipulating money.
Take the hit and invest in people; or...
Lets hang on to what the greedy gits have got GOSH
The Greek nation is no different to ours; politically and economically split down the middle.
Who should we take on! the wealth owning 1% or the Chinese.

THURS 20th April 2017
1653; Oliver Cromwell ended the rump parliament - which had followed the Long Parliament;
which had governed/ruled during the civil war.
Which led to the restoration; which in time led to parliamentary rule over the divine right of royalty.
A period of open UK conflict with gravity - for some an early grave.GOSH
Fighting over/under religion for money - the human race will be having sex next.
The church will try and influence sex next - you mark my words.
The mark was the German currency before the EU brought in the Euro - Geddit.
Some don't get it - Geddit GOSH
It's always (justice must be seen to be done) OK to kill for your country - but not within your country.
Rules is rules OK; for the common good GOSH.
Men and women have always killed each other for money; no matter how civilised one professes to be.
Does brexit give Brits - the English - more of a carte blanche for open conflict (alliance with the yanks) in this
woe there's a chance of war world.
Never forget; one of the main tenets of the EU is to prevent another war in Europe.
What has the continental mainland coast of Europe got that our little island hasn't - masses of war graves.NO GOSH
I never thought that UK irony and hypocrisy would be bettered...

Enoch died in bed; how many plebs had an early grave GOSH.
2016; Betty 11 visited the royal mail delivery office at windsor - only plebs got to post offices
(a seperate private organisation/co - it was the 500th anniversary of the postal service.
In 2013 the royal mail was partially floated on the LSE by a right wing coalition government under the guise of an EU directive -
the gov taxpayer would look after the 'workers' pension.
In 2014 the London Assembly (to the left just) voted for renationalisation.
2015 the royal mail was fully privatised for no other reason than gain by the greedy gits.
The royal mail pension is now up for grabs - a politicians promise EH - NO GOSH
The Greek Post office is 90% owned by the state and 10% by Eurobank Ergasias - the third biggest on paper.
The post office (mail) will be on the list of privatisations as a condition of the Greek bailout by private
international investment banks.
FRI 21st April 2017
1671; John Law; A Jock economist; the offspring of bankers and goldsmiths; who bought a castle near Edinburgh.
Johny boy believed that money was just a means to exchange wealth and not a value of wealth or means of storing wealth.

Was John Law a con man or genius?
He was a quicker than quick dandy that made Beau Brummel look like a Brummie bag boy.
He died destitute in Venice - a gambler with a love of the good life...
A gambler with no funny money or gold GOSH
In the economic climate of today; a 'lefty' is publically slapped down for 'talking down' the economy.
Yet; those - hedge funds and investment companies - that gamble against our economy are the chums of the right and worthy
of public praise.
Time for change - let the lobbyers go GOSH
A European by nature and nurture - I can understand the nation state referendum result of Brexit.
For whatever reason - it was a protest vote.
I can't for the wealth of me; truly understand; why some prefer to defer rather than vote for themselves.
Are we still a nation of mercenary muppets - the electorate can't be wrong - give that voter a gong GOSH
Greece is a divided nation - with a coalition control of lefties and a breakaway group of righties.
It was the right in charge when the dodgy loans were made to allow entry into the EU.
The rich have now over-enjoyed a world that has moved to the right.
Time for Change - thats all a pleb will get from a gig economy - change; not a decent life.
SAT 22nd April 2017

It was his dad who got the chop for treason - today treason is no reason for the chop; officially by Law.
Has it really gone all that gore! GOSH
Today in 2017; there is an international march/demo of scientists (and chums) against Trump.

I'm not trying to give the game away - but; is it now, even less glory and even more gold. GOSH
1778; James Hargreaves died; the inventor of the Spinning Jenny - Jenny was one of his daughters.
When he began to flog em to support his large family; hand spinners - fearing unemployment - broke in and destroyed

Spinning jenny was an actual machine before the advent of Trade Unions - not a female PM.
Times change! mind the gap GOSH
1930; the UK, USof A and Japan signed the London Naval Treaty - limiting the construction/use of subs and ship building.
Wonder if it worked wonderfully!
The next election leaking is now testing the written manifestoes to be.
Here's slimming food for expedient thought in a nation with an economy under seemingly perpeptual polarising pressure.
Fund the NHS and all forms of caring for each other from taxation.
Fund the fighting - sorry defence - from charity.
Go on give it a go GOSH
The cons have declared that the foreign aid budget is to be continued unchanged.
If; you don't believe that foreign aid is now just another investment arm of capitalism.
You need to dip your willy in another well; Wally - don't mention anything that rhymes... Golly GOSH
Ps. the length of a leg higher than a footnote.
In a mining town smack bang between Sunderland and Newcastle every time a 5 foot two powerloader came into the local...
He was greeted with the stage whispered, almost reverend refrain. 'Walter'...
One day he explained, he held the record for keeping up the old oil lamps - they were heavy
One can conjure up the cacaphony of cultural collusion.
Boys will be boys (no women or kids now) Eh - grit and grunt against gravity.
The Greek loans are on hold til after the elections.
The EU won't have seen the Brit brexit election (alledgedly)coming.
The Irony; the Greek loans will come to an amicable agreement;and, the EU will become a more amenable organisation
cos of Brexit - not any election.
