It is now almost eight weeks since I plighted my troth, eight weeks since I cut the nail and a piece of finger off my left index digit. Although the arrangement I had with my Selene I thought could get no better both finger and arrangement have improved considerably. First […]
Can You Believe It!
In these bleak, awful days of Covid with people choking to death in their masks and fighting in the queues, lining up at vaccination centres wanting to be the first to get the jab that day, there is news!!! Today, 12th March 2021, the world is starting to fight back. […]
Bullies Both Local And International
In a posting I titled Critical Claptrap which I published on 6th September 2015 I set out verbatim the rubbish that you get sent when you write a blog. Everybody is allowed to comment on what I say, but to comment abusively and anonymously is rather outside the Pale don’t […]
The Law Is A Fucking Ass

A Victory For Right Over Wrong.

They decided to let the villainous bankers, developers and politicians get off scot […]

Let me introduce you to a new group, a pressure group if you like, who have resolved not to pressure anybody as long as things are going along the right road. We are Friends of St Bede’s College in Manchester (FOBCIM) or FOBs for short I set out in 2011 […]
The Last Fuck Up Of 2014
This posting is short and really it is to wish all my readers a HAPPY NEW YEAR and to remind everybody of the last fuck up of 2014. Yesterday Baroness Butler Sloshed, the erstwhile chair of the Inquiry into Child Abuse, agreed to be interviewed by the BBC and in […]
