And Then More Words….

With Immigration numbers up again, there was some government chap on TV saying that many fellows coming here are needed to fill our skills gaps in the workforce. With a million and some unemployed would that not beg the question as to what's lacking and/or wrong with our education system? That's a question that never seems to be asked. If it's not as complex as that, trust me, even I can wash a car. Even better now I know how not to add those infuriating streaks to the windscreen.

We were also treated to Mr Cummerbund making his case for joining in the bombing of the bad boys. At one point he said we needed to bomb the bad lads in their heartlands. Hay Dave, as sound as the idea of bombing them in their heartlands may be, don't you think air strikes on Luton would be a tad extreme right now? If I were you buddy, I'd put that idea way over there on the backburner for a few more years and see how things shape up.

However, if you find it impossible to control your compulsion to bomb something and the idea of things going bang really trips your trigger, just stick to bombing old four-by-fours in the desert at what, a hundred grand a pop? That'll show 'em, eh?

Dave, a cautionary note: Don't expend all your bombs, smart or otherwise, blowing four-by-fours off a big beach but keep a few in your hipper as, who knows, sometime in the not too distant future, bombing Luton or Birmingham may become a viable proposition and you wouldn't want to find yourself bomb-less should such a situation arise. How embarrassing would that be then?
