My dog has marvellous Accountancy skills……thanks Sammy!

Posted in Uncategorized at 6:42 pm by aleksan

I know Mr Sam has many skills, of course he is our wee dog, but even I was staggered when he showed knowledge of Accountancy. Today Her Majesty’s Revenue and Customs sent me an important letter detailing my Tax position and Code for the following Tax year. Not terribly interesting just now, so I set it aside for future filing in the appropriate tatty Box File. But Samuel McSomerled ARCCA took it upon himself to deal with the letter in his own inimitable way – I discovered a large bite shaped piece had been removed and eaten – the bit telling what my new Tax Code is going to be….Thanks Sam, it can now go in that special file under the desk – the waste paper bin.

UK -One Party State?

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:06 pm by aleksan

Is the Uk becoming a one Party state? Labour a joke. UKIP gone phut. Liberals a whimper. Scots Nats irrelevant. Small parties a few squeaks…is there ANY opposition to the Tory Party?

Trump has demeaned himself and his office by creating fake news about Sweden

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:18 am by aleksan

Either Trump has created “false news” e.g. Lied or he is so incompetent that he believed a right wing documentary on Fox News was real! Either way, looking from this side of the pond, he has behaved in a way that demeans himself and his office.

Blair antics – the Comedy Show comes to Britain

Posted in Uncategorized at 1:35 pm by aleksan

Has Tony Blair entered the realms of delusion and fantasy?  Is he off his rocker?  This smug, arrogant and deceitful EX  Prime Minister, ultimate symboil of the rich, entitled liberal elite, is calling for people that voted Brexit to “rise up” and fight to reverse the referendum decision (democratically obtained mind you) for the UK to exit the EU.  I did not agree with him about invading Iraq and backed the Protest – but he conned most people including the MPs and that terrible mistake of a war happened, following him apparently praying together with Bush…I have to admit I dislike his namby pamby voice and he reminds me of my condescending school prefects (“get your hands out of your pockets Burnfield”)  I thought the Trump comedy Show was entertaining enough, now we have our own home grown clown.

Are liberals liberal anymore?

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:11 pm by aleksan

People who consider them selves liberals have become actually less tolerant and more inclined to impose their self satisfied ideas as of some sort of entitlement! Many of these people come from the political and professional sections of society – and collude with a corrupt system that keeps the rich rich and the powerful powerful. It was because of this misguided sense of superiority and entitlement that Hillary Clinton, the ultimate symbol of the liberal elite, lost out to the businessman and individualistic bully, Donald Trump. So there are bullies and people with fascist “I know what’s best for you” sentiments polarising against each other….where have the true liberals gone?

Are the Liberal Elite now the real Fascists?

Posted in Uncategorized at 2:49 pm by aleksan

​A very good Any Questions and Any Answers today, always good to hear what the listeners of all backgrounds and political colours think and feel.  Someone suggested that the Liberal elite are the new “fascists” – an interesting idea….they certainly have the power 7and money –  and control the media.  Someone else pointed out that in the 1930s the Fascists in Germany scapegoated Jews and minorities to deflect away from a broken system, and that Trump is doing the same in the USA and that Brexit is a similar process in the UK – with the Government not condemning racism in any real way, but blaming Europe, immigrants and refugees.  We must all be aware of the inner fascist in each of us and a tendency under stress to blame others rather than putting our own houses in order.  Even the Angels bow to those that show restraint….

Trump the Bogeyman!

Posted in Uncategorized at 12:15 pm by aleksan

​Is Trump the new bogeyman?  Is he the Napoleon of the modern age?  Someone we love to fear but also like to make fun of?  The British are fascinated by clowns in politics at home or abroad, people that  we admire, laugh at but find very scary – Nappy, Putin, Maggie and Blair, Jeremy, Boris and Mandy.  And now Trump.  We need these people to spook and entertain us, to laugh at and gossip about on Facebook and Twitter.  So long as they never get near the Nuclear Button….
