One couldn’t make it up...


June 16th - June 23th 2016




THURS 16th of June



1911; the digital seed of the predecesser to IBM was planted in New York today.
The 'computers are coming' started over 100 years ago GOSH

In the technical times of today...
If you were born after the mobile phone; you are a digital child.
If you were born before the mobil phone; you are a digital immigrant GOSH

People forget - many are unaware - that like; the no.of women working enabled the rise in living standards.
Micro-miniaturisation was an important factor in the rise of the digital era.
A 60's mobile phone the size and weight of a house brick was a mass no-goer...GOSH

The IT industry became the tail wagging the dog after the computer chip was developed in the early 1970's.
From industrialisation to flooding and over-digitalisation of the domestic market via commercialisation in just over one generation.
For some an overload of dosh - no tosh GOSH

From; you, being marginally in charge of a keyboard - to being subconsciously controlled by a mobile phone.
Now the hard ware is hitting the buffers; it is not the AI and robotics that is the frenemy of society.
It is the algorithm - systems so complicated they can only be constructed by teams...
One mans algorithm is another mans autopsy - and then you were gone GOSH

The number of, and ability, of humans capable of developing and controlling artificial intelligence is a finite resource.
Many a dodgy git has been well paid by humans for 'programs' that just simply don't work.
Wonder if robots would do better - cash or gash! GOSH

Only a desperate greedy git would frack anywhere near a previously mined area.
Now one man - not lobbied of course - can overule any council in the land...
Devolution! by dodgy dick heads for dickheads...
Is fracking coming to a site near you - under your grave GOSH

If it looks like a dodgy dealer; talks like a dodgy dealer; replies like a politician; it is a dodgy dealer
A dodgy dealer condoned by and colluded with all colurs and levels of political persuasion...
Green is now seen - but far from sentanced - as a goliath of greedy gits...
Shall we hang or hug GOSH


GREECE
Germany has already 'bought' many a Greek company - the telecommunications industry being targeted the most.
The Chinese are investing heavily in Greece - the gateway to Europe...
The Greek family siver - just like ours - is being sold on the cheap...










FRI 17th of June 2016



1631; Empress Mumtaz Mahal died during fourteenth childburth on this day.
Her hubby/shah had the Taj Mahal built as her mausoleum - finished 22 years later.
Throughout history; emotions of such grandeur...GOSH

To build the Taj Mahal today; £500m quote; rising to £1 billion - as it does...
The Taj is three times higher than the Gatehead Angel.
And! can easily contain ten of newcastle's largest pub/nosh establishments.
With not hint of a grape or grolsch fuelled grin GOSH

Many of the worlds richest people can afford to build a taj mahal - on paper...
'Sir' philip green prefers to have yachts built - on the paper of other peoples pensions...
Life is great - if us plebs allow it - for the greedy gits GOSH

The mausoleum is a blend of Indian, persian and muslim cultures.
Mass immigration in the 1500/1600's - how on this earth did they manage!
Probably killed a few hindis...
Evenwhen the going is smooth - the tough get going...GOSH

The polarisation of politics has now taken the 'deadly' turn...
Political assassination always has a delayed, often disguised, more onerous consequence.
For the many; the good times are going... GOSH

Online and phone banking are becoming increasingly more popular - it's convenient...
When most women didn't work, one could go into a bank and instantly, face to face, sort out any - if any - problem.
In the age of digitilisation - get just one digit wrong...And...
The bailiffs are coming...hahah... automatically...
Of course this won't happen to you...will it!
There are now a number of 'beat the bailiff' advice web sites...
Go on have a gander GOSH...


GREECE
The right wing in Greece are now starting to demonstrate against the socialist government for not ending austerity...
Greece and the rest of Europe are polarising politically.
There may be trouble ahead.










SAT 18th of June 2016



1815; Waterloo; The Duke of Wellington defeated the French Empire under Napoleon the first.
Young Nap was one of the leaders resulting from the first french revolution - 1792, france became a sort of Republic!...
Never forget! Nap was beaten by us and the Prussians - a predominantly German monarchy that used mercenaries from all over Europe.
Don't get out the tin hat; we aren't going back as far as the Huns and Gauls.GOSH

Why did the French revolt? it's the economy stupid...
The French had three revolutions; it wasn't until 1848 that France truly! became a Republic - the second sort of...
Meanwhile man had been enhancing his two favourite hobbies - sex and violence...
Gangs are great GOSH

While us Brits were building the Empire; by slapping and crushing heads at arms length.
The rest of Europe was suffering the death and destruction by; in your face fighting.
One of the primary aims of the EU is to prevent another war...
Europe and Russia took the biggest hits in the world wars.
For us plebs; wars aren't that great. GOSH

At the time of waterloo - the Prussian Germans had one third of the Polish people in the gang.
The second world war kicked off cos the Germans invaded Poland...
Who would be on our side! if we left; and, attacked an European nation or chum!!!
On geo-political guard GOSH

When the French plebs attacked the Paris town hall it was defended, initially, by the Swiss Guard.
Yes; the very same gang that now protects (ceremoniously!) the Vatican City.
If you think that England - yes England - can make its way in the world; by being some sort of offshore banking and mercenary neutral to the biggest - albeit; as yet, centre right controlled - trading block in the world...
You need another hole in your little england, overheating, headband...
You won't even get bronze; forget about gold GOSH.


GREECE
When the german led bankers demanded repayment of the Greek loans...
The Greeks reminded the Germans; that they hadn't honoured the second world war - or even the first WW - reparations.
The french banks backed off a little...
The german banks must need the money - much of it funny money accounting - more.
Interesting times - negative interest rates.










SUN 19th of June 2016



Today in 1978 - just over generation ago - Garfield; the cat comic strip purred of the presses.
A nice little earner - aspirationalist; of course - for Jim Davis; it was syndicated in 41 US newspapers.
Some have never heard of Garfield...GOSH

Garfield was the usual ratio of perspiration to inspiration...
Ironically; Its success is down to being non-political - yet the original intention was to be political...
Recently; the fat cat can bring in just less the $1 billion/annum.
The holding the cash co, set up by J. Davis, is catalogued as; 'Paws,Inc' - A gazetteered goliath GOSH

The most popular and enduring - some would now comment infamous - uk, and world to an extent, comic strip is of course, 'Andy Capp'. A working class hero (pleb) - certainly not a hooray henry - from Hartlepool...
Hartlepool has a large civil airport - it's where they teach pigs to fly.
Hartlepool FC have a mascot called H'angus.
He was elected as mayor of Hartlepool - he started as a joke and become a goliath GOSH
The greedy gits are offering short term bribes for councils to elect independent mayors...
Give them one million quid and take away ten...
The elected police commissioners are now being subverted to take over the Fire brigades...
The Fire Brigades are being adapted to take over the Ambulance Service...
All for the love of money - not life...
Pseudo-socialists are gratuitously grand GOSH.

Southwards from the Tyne; the soubriquets or nicknames - depending if one is self deprecating or taking it - are:
Sand dancer... Mackem... Monkey hanger... and Smoggie...
All of them are now relying more and more on tourism; instead of industry...
The north eastern power house is going great! More like grime and grim GOSH


GREECE
Most countries have a north/south divide.
The bankers will be after the assetts from the centre and south of greece.
Don't mention the islands...

MON 20th of June 2016



1968; the first person to run 100m - not yards - under 10 seconds, was an american; Jim Hines.
At the summer olympics in mexico city - average summer temp.18 degrees centigrade.GOSH

Mexico won the footie world cup in 1970 - the next footie world cup is in Russia; av. summer high 18; -8 Jan.
The 2022 footie cup is in Qatar - Qatar has hosted all kind of world cups lately...
The average summer high in Abu Dhabi; 41; yes 41 degrees centigrade...
Well; griddle their goolies GOSH

If; Donny - hilarious hairstyle - Trump becomes president and builds 'the wall'.
The next high jump champ will be a Mexican...
It could be a chap from Chihuahua; or a gauncho from Guerrero.GOSH

A few year ago; the USA/Mexico border area had more than a few signs...
'Would you let this man work for 60 cents/hour!'...
'Buy this factory plot in Mexico - and you could'
God loves a greedy git GOSH

The democrat; Sanders/Clinton vote established an unexpected North/South divide...
Clinton - Hilary; being the centre right clandidate, winning the old slave states
Sanders - Bernie; being the left wing candidate - narrowly losing...
America now has the choice: far right or centre right...
Clinton being marginally ahead of Trump in the polls.
Some choice; snobby or gobby GOSH

World politics is polarising...
The recent political inertia in the USA has resulted in the status quo ongoing death and destruction conducted by an Empire.
Will America move too far to the right!... The future might be grim GOSH


GREECE
The huge american banks have an overbearing influence on the European central bank and the English banks.
They have more funny money and a vested interest in using Greece to help turn it into real money or wealth.
Whether Greece or the UK leave Europe is immaterial - or is it!
The dollar as the world currency is now being called the 'time dollar'
The pound has no chance of being the base currency against the dollar or chines yuan...
The Euro has.
Even the digital Euro has.

TUES 21st of June 2016



William Arthur Philip Louis; heir to the throne - the one in london not the smallest room - popped out of princes Diana today in 1982...
The man/boy of the people wasn't named: Baz, Gaz or Jazz...
Nor: Taff, Paddy, Jock, scouse or Geordie...
Not even hedged as the; 'Jewel in the gypsies jacksie'
What does one expect in the era of; food banks for the plebs - and; plenty for the posh GOSH

The footie isn't going so well...
There's more off pitch patter; than...
When; a multi millionaire sends millionaires to a thirty bob bash...
He doesn't say, 'remember; who pays for your partners porche - are you a sugar daddy or a divvi!'
Not the words of a greedy gadgee GOSH.

The only things that todays footie fellows can totally control is the boot and hair 'contract'.
We seem to have gone through the 'cute' coloured things on the feet phase...
We are now in the somewhat, 'horrendous haircut' era...
If there is a god overseeing football!
He must surely be called Gosh...GOSH

And now the end is near...
Immigration seems to be, one of; if not 'the', most important issue of the referendum...
Possibly! enough hearts or minds to swing the close decision...
Immigration is a classless concern of both right and left; politically.
The right are regarded as racist...
The left; 'it's my job' - I'm not a gob GOSH

Self preservation is built into most peoples soul...
Even the most liberal minded of muppets can be racist.
What ever next! man forming gangs GOSH

The left fear for their jobs?
Or; are some of them racist to an extent!
The whole of the western world - and more - has moved to the right; believe it; or; believe it not.
Immigration within Europe isn't the short or long term problem...
The problem; the unrelenting pace of technology, fostered by our fellow humans, and; gaining ground back from - whatever the colour, creed or nationality - the greedy gits.GOSH


Greece
Greece has their fair/unfare share of greedy gits.
Will Greece move to the left or right?
The west - some say the world - is going through a financial bubble.
When it bursts! will there be trouble?

WED 22nd of June 2016



1907; the Charing Cross Euston and Hampstead railway was opened by Lloyd George - free pre-BR breakfast...
The first tube opened in 1863 and used steam engines.
Over half of the present tube railway system isn't under ground.
The UK largest selling Model Railway mag featured an article; on how to build a tube type railway under ones floorboards.
It was an April edition... A googlie beneath the goolies guard GOSH

In 1933 most of the lines, tramways and bus routes were 'merged' and run by the London Transport Board
On the 1st of Jan. 1948 the tube was nationalised.
The London underground is busy; however, it doesn't get into the world top ten - you little englanders get a grip GOSH

In 1970 London transport was run by the GLC - red Ken and blue Boris...
Their main headache was the RMT - a union led lately by Bob Crow.
A bloke said to have been taught to read the morning star, and the financial times; by his docker dad
A goliath of the gang against the greedy gits.GOSH

Oh! so were the rest of the UK railways nationalised in 1947/48.
The privatisation of BR began in 1994 by the tory greedy gits and was aided and abetted by new labour in 1997.
Today 3/4's of UK railway outfits are owned by foreign state run or state backed countries.
This is not the fault of the EU - it's the fault of home grown tory and new labour greedy gits...GOSH

Privatisation of national assetts is all about the political dogma of profit and control.
Profit for the few and control by even fewer.
Do plebs really believe the gush of gobbledygook and gibberish GOSH

Europe needs change - no doubt...
Changing our greedy gits and not those of Europe...
Is tantamount to national proportional economic suicide...
Should I stay or should I go GOSH


GREECE
The Greek railways are presently state owned and run...
The international 1% backed by the funny money of the bankers will be after the Greek railways,runways and roundabouts.
One can put a few digital or paper; pounds, dollars, euros, yuan; or even drachma on that.

THURS 23rd of June 2016



1868; The worlds first 'good' 'commercial' typewriter was patented today - alledgedly...
The first to work canny typewriter, was built by an Italian, in 1808, for a blind female friend...
The first touch typist; thanks to a randy, or gritty gallant GOSH

It took nearly 100 years for the word processor - now we have the PC with a wireless keyboard...
And; to a much lesser extent; the smart phone and tablet - though the young; with their massive volumes of gibberish don't realise it yet.
Of course! any form of modern communication without the web; would be, like a:

Politician without a promise...
A bailiff without a bully...
A banker without a bonus...
A copper without a cudgel...
A clown without a frown...
A philanderer without a floozie...
A barrister without a brief...
A judge without an injunction...
A Rsole without a hole...
A spad without a dad...
A racist without a rant...
A referendum without an ending...
Without the web; a plonker in Pity Me; couldn't publish his proselytisings in Petersburg or pingliang...
Never mind Gettysburg GOSH

Today is referendum - in or out - day
The UK has only had two previous referendums:
2011 on the alternative vote - a massive majority for first past the post election of MP's - only 44% turnout

1975 the vote was 67% in favour of staying in... 65% turnout...
The European MEP's elections have very low turnouts...about 35%

The general election in 2010 had a 65% turnout - Hung! parliament...
The general election in 2015 had a 66% turnout - the greedy gits won with 36.9% of the vote.
Who got the biggest shock - the greedy gits GOSH


GREECE
Greek politics has seen many changes recently - in the way of newly formed parties.
The 2015 election:
Coalition of radical left (SYRIZA) 175 seats.
New democracy - liberal! conservatives (ND) 75 seats - in power for the dodgy loans
Popular association -golden dawn(XA) 18 seats - the neo nazi mob

Statistically - but not politically - Syriza can be out-voted...
The left in Greece has more factions than the UK.
The loans have put Greek politics into turmoil mode...
