On This Day 26th June
1483; Richard, Duke of Gloucester, began to rule England as Richard III, having deposed his nephew, Edward V.
Edward and his brother, Richard, Duke of York, were soon afterwards murdered in the Tower of London.
A controversial ( some spell it different ) character at best -: the tots in the tower; the unparayelled
pursuit of power; a bunch of bastards; the wars of the roses, nookie the nobles daughter; thats a canny hoard,
where's me bloody sword
Put up the garlands; let's have a gargle and giggle GOSH
It was the exploits of richard the third that earned him the solemn sobriquet; 'dick the turd'.
That writer of old, had him crying, ; A horse; a Horse; my kingdom for a horse...'
Dickie boy was the last english king to be killed in battle...
It was him whose body was unearthed from a Leicester car park...
A publicity stunt! they were looking for the greedy git.GOSH
1939; Britain's first National Serviceman, Private Rupert (a rupert is a derogatory word for an 'officer') Alexander,
signed up for the Middlesex Regiment.
His service number was 10000001.
Millions died during the second world war - 20 million russians alone; a conservative estimate...
1945; Delegates from nations around the world signed the United Nations Charter,
designed to help ensure future world peace.
The first meeting of the U.N. General Assembly occurred in London in 1946.
The 'ability' of democracy to prevent death and destruction is one of the finest examples of cant and hypocrisy
in life today.
There we/it was gone GOSH
1999 The National Stadium of Wales ( also known as the Millennium Stadium and Principality Stadium) held its first
major event,an international rugby union match.
Wales beat South Africa in a friendly by 29–19; before a test crowd of 29,000.
Wales used to be 'rugby union' land - the stadium is still 'owned' by the WRU; the stadium was renamed to 'The
Principality stadium' in 2016' when a deal was done with the new sponsors; who are now owned by an English group.
Who claim to still be a mutual building society - despite all the mergers and take overs
If you believe that; you need to do some more maths on your mortgage - need a gauge GOSH
Building societies were formed cos the banks were ripping plebs off.
Most building societies today are not much different from banks.
Even in capitalism there is a profitable market for socialism - ask the owners and shareholders of the Daily Mirror!
The mainstream media and mortgage money men are grabbingly great GOSH
Another one bites the dust - the ECB is now having to bail out a couple of Italian Banks.
The EU is a centre right organisation colluding in the embroiled manoeuvering of made up money by the western
world banking system.
One could laugh if the money wasn't so funny - the greedy gits are hanging on.
Time for change - manufacturing now; not funny money rules OK...
