 Captain Kidd on Then Rot  Old Greek Pirates






1645; Billy Kidd - Later known as captain Kidd - sailed safely out of his mammas harbour today.
He was tried and executed for piracy in 1701 - a canny innings in them days.
Buccaneer, privateer, corsair or pirate; 'many' earlier gangs, were sponsored by government to nick Spanish wealth.
Must have picked the wrong gang GOSH

1860; Billy Horatio Bottomley was supplied by demand today.
A greedy git MP who served time for fraud and had more bankruptcies than a denizen of the dragons den.
He started the patriotic journal 'John Bull' and, after spending £millions; died in poverty in 1933.
Must have been in more gangs than a gangster. GOSH

1991; John - circus boy to tory gang leader - Major came up/out with one of novelty politics doozies.
The Citizens Charter.
Failing public service 'providers' would be forced to offer 'customers' cash refunds or face goverment budget cuts.
I'm sorry I'll read that again GOSH

The cuts are kicking in now.
More rolling stones are gearing up for another GIG GOSH

Rich people making rules for poor people brings about inequality.
If! you don't think that inequality is on the increase; you need another hole in your hairy hoop.
Talk about an own goal GOSH


GREECE
Refugees are claiming that renegade Greek Coast guards are 'pirates'.
Some 'victims' claim they are right wing racist Greeks dressed up as costguards.
Fake news, conspiracy, or fact - anything goes... the truth is, and always will be, stranger than fiction.
Greece is now seen as a 'treasure island' by the greedy gits

 James the First age 20  No UK Goalposts






1603; Betty one died and James the sixth of Scotland became James the first of England and Scotland.
He was the son of Mary queen of scots who got the chop. He was the head greedy git, when Guy Fawkes - said to be the last honest man to enter parliament - was harshly admonished for trying to blow up the house of gob GOSH

It was over a century later that the actual act of union between England and Scotland was signed - don't mention the on going war with Ireland. Jimmy - and the gang - called himself, The King of Great Britain,France and Ireland, defender of the faith, etc, etc.
There are some who preferred that Betty was known as King and James as, - despite the offspring - Queen ...
Betty two will soon be on her way to the kingdom of heaven - wonder what will happen!
Go on; have an ungodly guess GOSH

2015; inflation fell to zero in the UK for the first time on record.
Some forecast that UK inflation would rise if we leave the EU.
Inflation is on the road again; coming to a venue near you.
Very (very) few forecast the banking crash - many delayed 'acknowledging' the crash - making it worse for all (plebs).
The only way out of a recession - of any size or place - is investment in working hard - not moving the goalposts of money manoeuvering and manipulation.
Who was it that said, 'the people have had enough of experts'; oh yes, that more than material misfit...
Mr Gove GOSH


GREECE
Printing money for the few and dodgy loans are an insidious form of inflation.
Those that move the goalposts will pass the price of inflation on to the plebs - if you let them

1199; Dick the first of England was taken out by a crossbow bolt in France.
He lived in France; his kingdom of England was a fiddle job to provide funds for fighting.

Whose almost equally divided side are you on; pleb or greedy git GOSH


GREECE
Greece is more divided more than most nation states - a coalition government rules OK - wonder if a UK coalition would cause more division.
Many of the worlds nation states are almost equally divided - don't mention the EU or America.
If you don't believe there are 'interesting times' ahead; you are keeeping your head below the bib on your brown trousers.

In the words of the celebrated song

Greece has a population of 11 million with a debt of roughly 40 thousand dollars per person.
Japan has a population of 127 million with a debt of roughly 100 thousand dollars per person.

Most developed nations are selling national bonds to anyone that buys them. (a melee of funny money)
Greece has debt by borrowing from other nation states.
Game on.
Just over 15,000 brits live in Greece.

1800; the Irish parliament passed the Act of Union with England - we 'we' became the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland.
This was the era when the rich really ruled OK.
What! you say! them days are here again; democracy is a derisory damp illusion, for the plebs to swallow.
What goes around... comes around.
Good God! I'll have a guiness GOSH


It wasn't Jeremy Corbynn that brought about the SNP rules OK and this 'devilish' devolution - not just the jocks. It was 'new' Labour and their tory chums; what done that.
This nation state is now politically and economically split almost right down its centre right middle.
A move to the left won't cause much strife and gripe gosh

The 'leaked' proposed changes to prescriptions are cuts - cuts mean privatisation
If you disagree you need a higher backed easy chair on/in your escalator emmission control centre.

The new pound coin comes into circulation today - hows your circulation.
Will there be a new pound shop chain - keep moving; the door's on the right.
The reason for the new coin is to counteract counterfeiting.
It's OK for the private banks to print private prosperity - one can't have the plebs making money
Money makes the world, many sided go GOSH

The mint is still royal - The royal mint has its own website; one can buy new pounds from ten pound.
Careful you don't take a hammering - other greedy gits are available and on the go...GOSH

The royal mint is gonna make digital 'gold' using blockchain, in partnership with the CME group.
Blockchain is the - as yet safe - latest computer coding enabling the taking over of electronic money from physical ( or any form of ) money.
The CME group is an American International money manipulator with offices in London and Belfast - no where near Grenoble or Gdansk GOSH

A public/private partnership in blockchain, courtesy of brexit.

 war of roses Cross  Greek House for Sale






1461; over 28,000 deaths were recorded (who's counting) at the battle of Towton!
You've heard of the wars of roses though - Lancaster v York or Teddy 1V ( the winner by far for a few year ) v Harry V1
The echoes of the long gone past have similar circumstance to the internationality of scrapping for affluence v effluence today.
Mercenaries or malevolent muppet - Giz a gattling gob/gun GOSH

1869; the architect of mausoleums and war memorials was born today.
Would owning a Lutyens - he also designed big houses - become the same as owning a 'Gogh', 'Gainsborough' or 'Gormley' GOSH

Over 39,000 finishers were officially recorded - many are charity walkers and talkers.
Have dresser-ups and charitables got just as much grit GOSH

Charities have been an even bigger growth industry than banking in recent history.
How on this ever more effluent earth did we manage without all those charities!
Oh yes! we were subjected to and happily paid more taxes.
In the old days was it a better - or just different form of graft and grafting.

In todays economy under pressure do we rely more on charity than taxes.
The cost of delaying death is paid for by charity and taxes.
The cost of delivering death ( them rocket things are called defence ) is paid for by taxes alone.
Have we got it wrong again dad! Then we were gone GOSH

2004; Southern Ireland became the first country in the world to ban smoking in work places, pubs and restaurants.

There is too much of everything, in the days of instant gratification - don't mention grub GOSH

2017; article 50 was triggered - give the girl a gun - today.
In two years time the little nation state of the 'UK' will become the country of the middle in the middle.
A country that economically denies itself a place in the future will be worse off when it tries to prosper in the trading scenario of the past.
You want a return to true democracy - a sucker for sovereignty; isn't inequality good GOSH

1775; the Brit parliament passed a law forbidding the American colonies to trade with anyone other than 'us'
2016; the British (UK) people voted to leave the European trading block - or did we!
We don't want the politics - just give us the money - is the money manoeuverers mantra of mystery.
Let my people go GOSH

Next time (if) the trump visits the golf course North of the border; he should have a gander at the still intact wall around Berwick.
Wonder if the french will build a wall in the tunnel for us.
That new robo brickie will be on the job soon.
Technology earns a few bob for the few; where have all the Luddites gone GOSH

52% of the population - all classes, colours ( political ) and creeds - voted to leave; and won.
Only 24% of the population; apathy and disenfranchisement rules OK - mostly the haves - elected the gang who are negotiating the leaving goodies/baddies.
If the have-nots think the haves are on their side - they need another hole in their exit strategy.
There goes satan; but for the grace of god... GOSH


GREECE
The UK leavers will be positively praying and humanely hoping that Greece defaults on the loans and leaves.
Would it be strange; if they default and stay!
There's nowt as funny as money and queer as folk - no profanity now...

 A Selfie by Constable  The Bilderberg Hotel





1837; Johny - got rich in his grave - Constable (used to be a polite for 'pig') died on this date.
Rich gits and not so rich institutions are now paying millions ( got any bitcoin ) for his countryside configurations.
Have you got a fake 'Constable' (reds under the beds - an all that) under the cot!
Con jobs and counterfeiting are more popular than one thinks; in times of austerity.
No-one (rich) is guilty of nowt - will you get locked up if you give it a go.GOSH

1855; Charlotte Bronte died giving birth aged 38 - Life style or 'life' choice!
The three Bronte ( the surname - a first name now for the posers - Irish or Greek origins) sisters had to 'be' men to get published.
Publish and be damned... The lifestyle/choice of todays woman - 20 year in a zero hour 'workhouse' then bear a brat - for the poor kids on the block is frowned upon.
Austerity rules OK - no grumbling in your grosch GOSH
1930; a Scot called John Logie Baird; installed a telly in 10 downing street.
The 'lock keeper hub' must stay on main stream message.
It was a generation later when 'plebs' could 'afford' the new novelty.

You need another channel for your chunnel - when you gotta go GOSH

1986; the GLC - can you remember the Greater London Council - and six metropolitan councils were abolished; to cut bureaucracy and increase efficiency.
Power was being centralised; we were becoming shareholders under thatcherism.
Along came phoney Toney Bliar and we became stakeholders as he bought the 'old' councillors by trebling their expenses.
The plebs were aware of the dying Empire; but, unaware of 'wealth moving Eastwards'...
Playing placate the pleb for the informed rich was an easy game GOSH

1990; was the year of the poll tax riots - the start of the end for Thatcher; but not thatcherism.
Her greatest achievement - her son - Phony Tony.
The plebs had voted; literally for an own goal early grave.
Democracy; who am I to disa-gree GOSH


2017; Reusable rockets will make space flight cheaper - they've done it after fifteen year of trying.
Money makes the world go around...
One swallow doesn't make a globally warmed summer...
One greedy gulp without gravity doesn't make a gosh GOSH


GREECE
What is said about the brexit negotiations, has gone from the sanguine to the solacious - some would say salacious.
Many countries - don't mention UK/GB/little England; whatever - have much greater debt than Greece.
It depends on who owes what to whom and the projected ability to pay 'it' back.
Who makes that decision; the bankers not/or the politicians.
