WED 1st of June 2016



Today in 1980 CNN (cable News Network), - the world; as we know it changed - began the first 24 hour news network...
In the post industrial western world; news became a growth industry...
We now have more news and a lot less journalists... no josh GOSH

98% of journos now have a degree - almost a third of them have a masters.
Education has - of course - had massive growth...GOSH

52% of journalist now work for online companies...
From phone hacking to smart phone hacking - where's the geek GOSH

In 1980 Trade union membership was at its highest - last year it was at its lowest...
Austerity is the reason why TU membership is starting to increase again... NO GOSH

We now have roadside drug testing - more tests; less testers on the ground...
Where have all the police patrols gone GOSH

Seven times as many people investigate benefit fraud as tax avoidance and evasion.
A gaffe or gift; by the Gaffers!!! GOSH

The greedy gits (private equity with funny money) are taking over the UK steel industry.
TaTa (Indian firm)- the sellers - forgot about India being ransacked by the British Empire of course...


GREECE
There are some in Greece who reckon the private media are merely pr for the people who own them.
That couldn't happen here... Could it!
One of the clauses in the Bail out deal is a reduction in the no. of TV companies.
The irony - the unions are trying to save them.
The Greek TU movement reckon 60% of the people are against the bail out and all the media are for it.

THURS 2nd of June 2016



1840 - Today a wordsmith by the handel of Tom Hardy; felt stifled wallowing in the womb and, leapt into life via his mamas love tunnel.
Tommy is described as a victorian realist (a leaning to the left offspring of relatively well off plebs) a person who pushed the envelope/parcel; against/within victorian values.
His ashes are buried in poets corner; his heart is buried - she died - in his first wifes grave GOSH

Pushing the envelope is as old as the spoken bible - the bible has naughty bits; so I hear - the trouble bubble pops up when enough people think the envelope becomes a parcel...
They will be using the f... word on and in the main stream media, next; you mark my cliched - expletive deleted - words.
Swear words beginning with 'G'? ...No gay or gibberish GOSH

Mrs may is now targetting the Fire Service - she'll be confronting the freemason movement next...
Cuts in the Fire Service have been endured since pussy was first trapped up a tree...
Economies of scale is the same old spurious argument; now again, laced with a dash of dogmatic devolution from the Chief Fire Officers.
The top Fire Service gang of greedy gits GOSH

The Fire service as a national organisation depends on, and can only thrive on, the pragmatic local knowledge of humans; not the dogma of de-centralisation and regional automisation...
The deregulation and dehumanisation of all local services is leading to more death.
Less overworked wallies! never mind; peanuts... monkey and organ grinder.
Will you die before you get old or gold GOSH

Local mayors and police commissioners are the trail blazers of tory dogmatic dodgy devolution - designed to save dosh not democracy
The police commissioners are now being 'primed' to take over the Fire Bigades...
Let's have a whole new department devoid of democracy...
Bringing back the squire would be even grander GOSH

The plebs will have another national holiday soon... BHS Day
The day that celebrates the ruining and running down of of 11,000 jobs, and more pensions...
So one greedy git can buy another huge yacht and his closest collaborating cohorts can cash in.
Life is grand for the greedy.GOSH

The collective noun for a few people taking it - is a 'potty'.
The collective noun for people who live in cars and on the streets is a, 'grotty'
The collective noun for people who suck up to the rich is a, 'grovel' GOSH


GREECE
If the greeks are bankered into voting for austerity for the plebs.
The collective noun will be a,'tragedy'.

FRI 3rd of June 2016



In 1937 the Duke of Windsor - not to be confused with the 'duke of earl' - married Wallis Simpson.
He used to be the king (Edward V111) - known as ted the head below palace stairs - he abdicated to marry a divorcee...
She was an American society flapper/slapper or sumthing - not a bit of a Geisha GOSH

A Divorcee with two living ex husbands couldn't marry a 'King' - it was, 'no go, no way, at all, for the establishment lackeys of the lower, lick-spittling, lolly loving, dynasty defending, levels.
The wannabees of the freebies got the wind up and the windsors had to live the life of Riley instead of royalty.
Whatever next... a gargle with goebbels GOSH

The king is in the counting house counting out his money...
The court jester taps gently on the door...
Ye can't kill another concubine (heir machine)... kidda...how will we placate the plebs!
Were henry V111's wives the first suffragettes... No josh GOSH

Fast forward five - hundred years; that is...
The king is dead... long live the king...
Well queen and queen to be...to be more precise.
Never let death and divorce come between a crown and a kings' kerching...
Ask charlie boy! the guardian in waiting of the royal greedy gang GOSH

The present royal family, at best, can only be described as dysfunctional.
All the spiders and spin doctors north off the south pole can't garner enough guile.
To sustain the constitutional continuance of this UK 'royal' gang of greedy gits.

The score for the BHS game:
'Sir' Phil - my face - Green; one new massive luxury yacht...
11,000 people; lives more or less ruined...
20,000 pensions; negatively affected - us plebs will subsidise...
Will we ever learn! or just grin and gurn GOSH

All the worlds a stage...
If politics is show business for ugly people...
How on earth; does one describe UKIP!


GREECE
The Greek 'royal' family have historic links to the UK club; and present links to Denmark with a touch of European interbreeding in between.
The greek colonels got rid of the 'royal' gang but since 2013 they are back in Greece - via London and Rome.
Wonder if they use tax havens and secret accounts!.
The present 'king' is a prince of Denmark by birth.
Wonder if he is king of the kardashians by marriage...
Greece is a republic...

SAT 4th of June 2016



Today in 1920 the first world war formally ended with the signing of the treaty of Trianon (a palace at Versaille ) in France.

What! you thought it was Armistice day! - that was the allies and Germany - The Western Front...
Silence them guns GOSH

Trianon was between the allies and the old Austria-Hungary empire; who were close chums of the Germans...
Bits were chopped off Hungary; to prevent it becoming too powerful again.GOSH

Less than 20 years later... many parts of the world were at it again cos of Europe...
Us little Englanders - an island off Europe that once had big hitters - don't apprehend the full consequences of recent war.
Before sex drugs and rock'n'roll; it was just sex and fighting...
Fancy a go! GOSH

The true devastation of death and destruction was experienced, much, much greater by mainland Europeans...
While we remember those that died - let's not forget...
One of the main reasons for the creation of the EU; was to prevent another war...
Where's me gun GOSH

The in and outer patter merchants are taking a happy slappering of a hammering at this moment...how many days to go...
What can one expect; with more dodgy deliveries than the enquiry(s) - don't mention Chilcott - into a Deepcut death; pun intended...
The forces recruitment and Europe in/out campaigns - despite the abundant poverty of the have nots - aren't that great GOSH

MPs'garner gold plated pensions and pay offs...
Shop and steel workers must accept future piss poor pensions and pay offs...
All those tough decisions! - must be taking a tiny toll on the undertaxed greedy gits. GOSH

The most recognised face on the planet was that of a big black boxer...
A man fully aware of the consequences of his actions...
And! now; Mohammad Ali; actually, not aka; Cassius Clay - a converted muslim - the greatest; is gone GOSH

GREECE
The privatisation of Greek assetts is being prepared behind the scenes...
There's even plans to sell off the beaches.
The Chinese and Germans are after the airports; and...
Foreign economies profiteering from a countries national assetts will help it in the long term.
Cods wallop - a much stronger word needed...
They would never allow that in England...Oh! they have; you say...

SUN 5th of June 2016



1849; Denmark became a constitutional monarchy...
Constitutional Day in Danish is 'Grundlovsdag' GUSH

Denmark is one of the 28 members of Europe - 21 republics; 7 monarchies - and in the Schengen area(free movement)
Denmark is the southernmost of the nordic states and physically - not politically - joins on to Germany...No JOSH

The Danes have a mixed economy - kept the Krone - with one of the least unequal states in the world; thanks to a predominantly centre left government.
The Eu is a mixture of nation states; presently propelled and dominated by the private banks of a centre right German government GOSH

Most of the worlds countries have greater inequality than Denmark - Denmark truly belongs to the people...
Denmark hasn't totally resisted the influence of the present world! leaning towards neo liberal greedy gittery...Gosh

One can still say it is one of the more fairer countries; in more ways than one.
The Danes over time have traded in their battle axes for bycycles - I don't think they have bingo.
Despite having north germanic border links - the Danes had no time for the teutonic boche GOSH.

Didn't us little englanders have Danish kings before 1066;and...
Don't mention that the normans were direct descendants of the vikings...
At St. Vallery Sur Somme on the french atlantic coast is a small commemorative pillar...
William the conquerer sailed from here...
Careful; half a carafe of cafe culture too much; and you'll miss it...
In nation states the sum of the parts is greater GOSH

Much is being made of our American cousins and the trump wall - not fence.
Many moons before the fence - there was huge billboard on the USA/Mexico border...
Would you let a man work for 10 cents per hour?...
Buy this factory in Mexico; and you can...
Free trade with all the goodwill of a gulag.GOSH

Would the combined wealth of the EU or the past relationship of an emaciated empire barter the best trade deal with The USof A!
You do the math; no guessing GOSH

Europe is far from perfect - how can it be; run by gangs of greedy gits
The phrase; temporary accommodation and urination; is best in the hearts and minds of humans...
Not the lap of the gods GOSH


GREECE
Japan has mooted the two generation mortgage - it most likely has them available now.
Closer to home we have a choice between greeks or greedy gits!
How many generations will the Greeks be burdened with an unrepayable loan.
What a crazy world of inequality we are living in.

MON 6th of June 2016


1683; the worlds first university museum opened the door in Oxford...
Most of the 'stuff' was acquired ( more or less nicked ) from civilisations that weren't doing so well at the time.
It wasn't just old pics and things in a shed; the museum was a department of the university.
Oxford university was mentored by Henry 11 - born in France; at the time, the richest of the gangs of greedy gits GOSH

Cambridge was formed just over 100 years later; some of the 'scholars' legged it; after a sort of deathly shin dig with some of the locals...
Does history repeat itself! here we go again GOSH

The locals of Durham city; have made known their concerns re. the intended increase/changes of Durham university.
Durham has about 17,000 scholars + staff out of 46,000 - Durham city is dominated by them...
Education is now big business - big business indeed...
Foreign students ( outside EU ) are more lucrative than the indigenous population; to a great degree
Who am I to disagree GOSH

Newcastle city - population; less than 250,000 - has two uni's:
Newcastle... 23,000 + staff...
Northumbria...27,000 - 33% foreign students - + staff...
Take the universities and shopping out of Newcastle and Durham - there's not much left...
Higher education as a business is - for now - going great GOSH

Those who acclaim themselves altruistic; have a target of 50% of the population educated to degree level.
A country in relative economic decline can't afford to educate them - never mind pay such numbers a degree level wage
Fur coat and no nickers for the graduates GOSH


GREECE
The UK has around 130 universities for a increasing population of 63 million...
Greece has 22 much smaller universities for a declining population of just under 11 million...
Greece is fourth; after, China, India and rep of Ireland for undergraduates studying in The UK...
In a fast changing world; the fortunes of the plebs of all countries aren't doing great.

TUES 7th of June 2016


Today; less than 100 years ago,in 1929 - wonder if it was a sunday - the Vatican City became an independent sovereign state.
The Vatican; with a population of just over 800; is classed as an observer nation by the United Nations.
The Swiss Guard - yes; they are Swiss, young, unmarried catholics - numbers around 130...
A mercenary; yet religious gang GOSH

In days of old - long before and after - when knights liked gold, the church (whatever denomination) was one hell of a huge oufit.
Today it can still punch above its weight...
A much smaller - but relatively rich - gang; many of the head honchos can be real greedy gits GOSH

In contemporay times; many people worship money, online; and in the shopping malls.
They can't see the horse meat for dog eat dog...
Dog spelt backwards is god GOSH

For hundreds of years it was catholic v protestant...
Now; we are being coerced into; us v muslim.
Make their plebs work and our plebs fight...
Make em scrap if they won't graft...GOSH

Ah Like cash me is going in front of a commons select committee.
A modern day slave owner - a man of the people; or...
A gruesome, grim, and ghastly greedy git.No GOSH

The sports direct suckers are all; agency, zero hours, workers (slaves)
I'll be your deferential divi from derbyshire...
Join a union - don't be gonads GOSH

Should the Leicester stars stay loyally with the team that made them!
Or take the money!
Should I stay or should I go! GOSH


GREECE
Greece is in an economic war - it is up against it more than any other European nation state.
Default on the private banking loans will mean leaving the EU - at the moment...
How many trillions is the world in debt?
Money makes the world go around!
