And Then, Prepare...

Well, Old Mother May-be-going, that would seem to have gone down well. Well done old girl.

Wot would you like to bet, that now the conservatives, little ‘C’, have been successfully hoist by their own MayTard, and Jerry Carbine could well become the next to lead the country, that is lead it towards a socialist utopia, that big business and indeed big everything are, even at this early stage, well ahead with their contingence plans for such an eventuality? I bet their plans are way in advance of any plans they had in place in the event of an ‘out’ vote in that EU referendum thingy.

Even though it’s Sunday, I can imagine huge sums of ‘off balance sheet’ money quietly leaving these shores; just in case. The wealthy may even be toying with the idea that a modest penthouse in Peking could be preferable to  eventually being reduced to a prefab in Peterborough.

My advice? If you have a garage, make your car get used to living outside and slowly fill the space with tinned food and toilet rolls. It will be impossible to convince the young of course, but if/when Jerry and his gang get to the top it’s not going to be pretty or end well.

And Then, She Spoke...

No, I haven’t listened to or read {red} the ladies speech but, as is my want, I just read {read} various Web site headlines then skip to the comments for the real people deal. Seems it hasn’t gone down too well and you invariably run into a commenter ripping the speech apart only to have another commenter commenting on that comment with a counter comment only to have yet another commenter tearing the commenter commenting on the first comment a new one and so on and so forth ‘till all the commenters finally admit that none of them have a scooby what Old Mother May meant. In? Out? Shake it all about? Fascinating stuff and would be so funny if it wasn’t so sad.

It’s always been obvious to me that those who would rule over us live in some parallel universe but it wasn’t always as obvious as to how similar our languages are and yet so very different. It would seem, Ma May, that you need to get someone to translate that speech, with all its tricky nuances, into simplified Plebonese so’s us down here can all get a little bit of a grip on what you actually said and what’s really going on, okay?

However, it certainly looks like yet another tin can is whistling down the road. I’ll post my idea on tin can kicking tomorrow after I study my theory in a little more detail. Assuming I can get adequate funding of course. But that’s only common sense.

Remember a couple of days after the vote to leave when Mr Mirage ‘quit’ saying his job was done? I thought at the time, too soon for quitting old boy. And look where we are now. It could be time for Mr Mirage to pull out o’ the garage, rev up, get a tight grip, make his old party hearty and scream back into the fray all guns blazing.

And Then A Speech...

No, at time of posting I haven’t heard it nor any reports relating to it. All I know is old Ma May-Day-Away is going somewhere with, apparently, Florence of Magic Roundabout fame, to talk, in a roundabout sort o’ way, about us getting off that EU roundabout thingy. Possibly. In a round-about a few years time. Will she climb off the roundabout waving a bit of paper, in a Chamber-pot sort o’ way, declaring she’s won penury for us for the foreseeable future?

Now this wot’s below is an old clip that’s featured here before but, to me, and never mind wot a nice fellow that Dave Davis is, demonstrates the perfect negotiating stance for leaving the EU. Come on Dave, watch and learn. Really, what else is there to say? Maybe May could confine her speech to just a handful of meaningful words as well. That’d work.

             

If you follow the blue link coming up, or down, you’ll find some fine footage. Please don’t confuse the clip with our very own Old Mother Maybe, although there maybe similarities, as it’s another mother altogether who, on reflection, had far more charisma and talent than our ‘beloved’ Mother MayBot.
It’s a longish clip but the first couple of minutes is my gem.  
You old folk feel just a tad older after watching that? Happy weekend.

And Then We’re Cool...

Ripper, Blue Man Group are in the jukebox, with thanks.

If the MSM, and the BBC in particular, hadn’t had this revelation running twenty four seven for the past few days, the news that the world isn’t going to fry any time soon may have gone right past me. Oh, hang on a minute...

So where are the interviews with that Davey chap and all the fellow travellers? Where’s that Harrabin guy? That Prof Cox laddie? Attenborough? Al Gore? Hello? Tumble weed drifting by?

I felt sure they’d all have been out by now squealing that the errors were obviously the result of poor funding and highlighted the need for many more gazillions of pounds, above and beyond, to be poured into more research and bigger computers, with keyboards this time, and can we have a mouse? thus enabling the train full to overflowing with gravy to continue rolling down the tracks.

Has it been completely airbrushed from the main news? Why? Me, simple old guy that I am, would’ve thought that something like this would be cause for much rejoicing and thus would be headlines all over the place; No need for alarm!The end of life isn’t imminent! Let’s get some coal out o’ the ground; let’s scrap the green levies; let’s stop desecrating the countryside and seas with bird killers; let’s cut utility bills. Wot do we get? Not a peep which must surely be an indication of how deep and how far reaching the con was/is and where the money is/went.

This comment from the first link says so much; with thanks to the author, Geoman:

  Okay.
   I’ve been saying for, oh, 10 years now that climate sensitivity is likely close to zero, or perhaps even a small negative number. And without a high multiplier for climate sensitivity, the problem becomes a long term nuisance, rather than a global crises.
   It appears I have been proven right.
   What bothers me is this – The data was crystal clear 10 years ago that climate sensitivity was very low, if not negative. I sat down with a few basic measurements, the geologic record, and a calculator and figured it out. It wasn’t especially hard. Because I publically dared to state facts and logic I have endured endless verbal and written abuse and possibly damaged my professional career.
   So? So what happens now? In a just world, the abusers and flim-flam men who have led the hysteria would be tossed on the ash heap of history. Will they? More than likely they will be rewarded for their foresight, or at best, told they committed a sin of overenthusiasm. I mean, being extreme in defence of mother Earth is no crime, right?
   No one will note the tremendous waste of time and money that went down the climate change drain, pocketed by these liars and thieves.

In other news, it now seems that depression in teenagers, and predominately teenage girls, is now being ‘treated’ as a mental health problem. I guess depression is a fairly new phenomenon then? Nobody has ever been depressed before these snowflakes came along? Or does someone, somewhere need some funding for a study perchance? A study to determine the link between depression and triggering.
Good comment from the above bit about it below:

   We didn't struggle with our body image when we were fourteen. We struggled with algebra and syntax.

Man, I get depressed every time I turn the TV on and I’m still waiting for someone to rush round to comfort me. Oh, and a TV interview. This may cheer you depressives up a tad.
