14th August 2011. I don’t really like to harp on one point but the aftermath of the UK riots has evoked much passion and political fumbling. This letter to a newspaper I will quote in entirety.

“5 months for not being involved in the riots but being given a pair of shorts which were stolen in them, and a post in the shadow cabinet and a hundred grand a year for false expenses to the tune of 13k.

Separating a mother from her children for political point scoring, that’s mindless violence.”

“Honest, industrious, peaceful citizens were classed as bloodsuckers, if they asked to be paid a living wage. And they saw that praise was reserved henceforth for those who devised means of getting paid enormously for committing crimes against which no laws had been passed”, Kurt Vonnegut’s God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater – 1965”

    I was going to post a comment to try and open a dialogue,

    but, after reading your site it’s evident you’re just a spiteful, deluded, friendless (and trafficless) old man with nothing constructive to say about anything.

    Sorry for you.

    Well. ‘Me’ In the words of Steve Jobs what do you do thats so constructive or do you just belittle other peoples ideas and motivations. Lets hear your take on some pressing social issue. Old yes but at least I made it, friendless – no, trafficless – well you found me.

    I suggest you feel sorry for yourself

    Great GREAT site,
    with all that’s happening in the world, it’s good to know that sites like this can still be accessed on the www, but the question is: for how much longer??
    We are living in a controlled society, of that there can be little doubt – and as much as this site would appear to be a breath of fresh air, I think that in the not too distant future, unfortunately it will be censored. Having been around the world twice, spending many years on various continents, I do still believe that we are the ‘lucky country’. Sure, we can do better, and some of these posts here make an awful lot of sense.
    Maybe not the post above, faceless @me, who doesn’t even show enough courage to use his/her real name. I guess there are nay-sayers in all corners of the world……
    Great site to ‘unload’, get something off your chest, and hopefully contribute something of value. And who knows……maybe even make a difference??
    I think that if pollies wanted to improve their popularity rating, they could do a lot worse than read this thread – but then again, there would then be no need for them then to embark on a fully paid tax-payer funded o/s jaunt for their entire entourage, flying Business Class, staying in 5 star hotels, with a chauffered limo at their beck-and-call 24/7…….to study the mating habits of the Tibetan tsi-tsi fly.
    We do have more pressing issues closer to home, and here is an open forum where we (still) can find out all about it.
    Power to you, Sir, long may it live!!
