It’s day 1 in the Big Beloved Bruvva Conclave and surprise surprise, the chimney spewed black smoke. Is this why I am more miffed than Chris Huhne’s milkman? Hell no.
What has gripped my ample furry rump is this. Read more…
A small group of incompetent civil servants totally screw up the west coast mainline bidding process. Cost of compensating the bidding firms estimated at £40M. Do those responsible pay or does the tax payer.
A few editors and newshounds, ultimately traceable, air a program outing an old man as a rampant kiddy fiddler without actually checking any of the facts. The Beeb is to be taken to court. Do those responsible pay or the licence fee payer.
A greedy shameless so called peer of the realm runs up extravagant official credit card bills of £286,000. Is he being taken to task or are they dropping the investigation and writing the debt off at the expense of the tax payer?
An MP decides she can better serve her constituents by getting her ugly mug on a jungle reality game show. She is going to pocket the ITV payment (minimum £10,000) but has pledged to give her MP wages for the 3 weeks to charity. Does the arrogant witch get to choose what to do with the public money or should payment be witheld and used by the penniless public purse?
A self absorbed MP discovers that by lying about which of her 3 properties is her second home, she can get 10s of 1000s of our cash to do up her beachhouse. When taken to task she claims to be mentally ill and unable to face trial. Will the tax payer ever see that money again?
I could go on but I think there is enough to establish a thread. Grrrrrr
How can Rangers sell shares in the club when the administrators have the reins?
They claim to be debt free yet the latest release is that ‘Gers owes the tax man alone, as near as makes few odds 100 million. I smell corporate dodgy dealing.
On a similar note I see with utter disgust that Newcastle United, my local bunch of overpaid, over-bouffanted narcissists have signed a deal with scumbag predatory loansharks Wonga. The ‘fans’ don’t give much of a hoot because part of the deal means the stadium will revert to St James Park. It seems the cash could come from a rich paedophile or a Coloumbian Cartel and no-one would bat an eye as long as the name was changed from Sports Direct Arena.
Honestly I despair.
So our hard working, honest and conscientious ministers are to boycot the Euro 2012 football farce.
But if we should scrape through to the semis in Poland they will attend because the Poles are nice and the Ukes are nasty.
My thought is this, why are they going on a freebie ticket to watch any sport when we are supposed to be saving every tax penny? What political boon is there to them showing their embezzling, weasel faces at any game? That’s right you heard me, GAME.
Yet even more proof, were it ever required that these morons do not inhabit the same planet as the rest of us.
even I can deduce that a business which haemorrhages money at double the rate it did last year to the tune of 2Bn smackeroonies is most definitely circling the drain.
Mr Osborne on the other hand says that this is a sure sign that the bank is on track. WTF?????????? Read more…
Heston Bloomin’eck is to put a new dish on the menu.
Nothing special there I hear you say, perhaps not. The aim of the creator of this burger is that it appears NO different to any other burger you might purchase.
If he gets it right the only difference will be when l’addition drops onto the table with a thud. £207,000 quid please.
and now the first shoots of evidence are begining to poke through.
Recently we had the Quakers, (Darlington) go into administration. They had a last minute reprieve courtesy of a 50k bung from fans and local busnisses but they are surely on their way.
Now one half of the Weegies are being advised to seek refuge from it’s creditors.
Just like the banks, these self absorbed ‘sportsmen’ have been riding the wave of their own ridiculous publicity.
The benefits cap. Bring it on. Read more…
So opinion is divided on the stripping of Mr Goodwin’s peerage. Since it was ‘awarded’ for services to banking, my personal take is that he should never have been given it in the first place. Any comfort to be derived from this retraction is cold IMHO.
What does give me ‘paws’ for thought however is the case of Gorbals Mick. Read more…
