My view of the Election.

I don’t understand why people are acting surprised about what’s going on? I said last night 30 minutes before the polls closed what was going to happen and sadly it looks like I’m correct.
I said for a very very long time that Ed Miliband and Labour would not win as they have lost their core values and traditions thanks in main to New Labour and Tony Blair especially when the Shadow cabinet was filled with previous Labour government stooges including Ed Balls and Harriet Harman.
I also said last night that England in the main would vote for the Tories in response to what the SNP we’re going to do in Scotland and again it looks like that very much.
BUT WE need to make sure that the Tories do not get an easy ride for the next 5 years, WE need to make sure that the NHS and Education are not only saved but made stronger, WE need to make sure that our poor, disabled and helpless are helped by the government and WE need to make sure they do that.
These politicians are there to serve US and NOT themselves and WE need to keep reminding them of that.
No matter the result WE the general public need to accept whatever government happens but WE need to make sure they work FOR US not AGAINST US.


The Running Bug

well it seems Kerry and I have the running bug, we started running back in August last year giving ourselves 8 weeks to train for a 5k in October which we completed and were very proud of ourselves so much so we done another one  in the November.

However things have gotten a bit daft and we have entered the Edinburgh half marathon which is on May 31st and we are training hard for it the most recent run was 9 miles and hopefully in the 8 weeks left we get to a good enough level to complete the run in a good time.

Goals for the Year.

So I set a few goals for myself this year one being to find a new job, I was offered one but it won’t work out financially which was totally gutting but never mind.

Another goal was to run 10k which I managed a few nights ago yes it hurt but was well worth it I was really pleased about it.

On a totally different note I’ve just watched a music video by Steel Panther called “Death to all but Metal” I have to say very funny lyrics (Be warned though it’s quite foul) I’m laughing as I type this.

What an idiotic world we live in.

Sexism, Political Correctness, Racism, Homophobia all these words nowadays are used too much and too often for the most part.

Today’s “scandal” is an Australian announcer asking a female tennis player to “give us a twirl” how in hell is that sexist?? I would say that if nothing else it would boost the young lady’s self esteem and she even said herself she thought it was funny.

Now there’s also been a massive fuss over page 3 too and here’s my opinion (which i believe in a supposed freedom of speech country I’m allowed) I see no harm in it I do not believe it makes people into sexual predators I don’t believe it makes men rape women I believe if nothing else it empowers women and basically no-one should dictate otherwise. No-one is forcing anyone to buy the paper.

The trouble with today’s world is that too many petty people are listened to and too many people look to be offended nowadays and to me it is disgraceful when you can’t say what you think without someone looking to get you arrested for it.

As for this so called freedom of speech/expression I do not believe that such a thing exists in this country I believe it’s a case of “You can have freedom of speech but only if it doesn’t differ from the PC Goody Goody Bleeding Heart Brigades View”.

The world has gone soft and people’s skin is so thin nowadays I’m surprised I don’t see more folk walking about with their bones sticking out in the open so I say to everyone GET A GRIP.

Poundland Gets It…

So I was in Poundland the other day and in their “bargain bucket” there were “live” dvd’s of the vile unfunny Russell Brand, the smug unfunny Ricky Gervais and the bloody annoyingly unfunny Michael McIntyre and I believe that the bucket is the best place for this bunch of unfunny so-called comedians.
