Slavery

Lets talk about something thats hit the news big time here in Lincolnshire . Now some of you may know I work part time for the Darkside , something im not allowed to talk about , they are truly crap employers .
I am familiar with the Rooney family both through my job and the fact that they are local legends , and theyve all been found guilty of modern day slavery offences and robbing the vulnerable .

http://thelincolnite.co.uk/2017/08/notorious-family-members-convicted-modern-slavery-lincolnshire/

Couldnt happen to a nicer bunch of folks , they give travellers a bad name , in fact they give the human race a bad name.
So the purpose of this rant is to bring up a few things ive seen over a number of years ,  that appear to be more common. than people realise .
The controlling males of both the Asian and Eastern European varieties  , this isnt saying  that other nationalities dont do these things . It seems to be very comman for males working here to bring theyre spouses and families  here . Then they socially isolate them , the women never go out except escorted by the male , therefore they never learn any English and the male does all the talking for them , with government agencies , schools etc etc . Some have been here for 10 years or more and cant even communicate for basic things , its abuse of a dreadful sort , they have no access to money , no friends and are trapped sometimes with partners who are physically abusive as well .

The abuse of migrant workers , ive seen many cases of vulnerable people working in this country who are abused shockingly by there employers , some have been here years but there employers cynically take the piss , i met a lovely middle aged lady , eastern European  who had been ill for several weeks had submitted a sick note to her employer and received not a penny of her statutory sick pay , she had been here and paying national insurance for 7 years . So the government will be paying her employer the money and they should be paying her it . I pointed this out and she stated that she had raised this and she was told to shut up or lose her job .  This is not a tiny employer they are a medium sized company , this lady works unpaid overtime , she is expected to work 12 hours a day 6 days a week and always earns the same 40 hour week minimum wage .

Weirdest conversation of the lot a young English Asian man who had married a girl from the home country and her parents had given them a tandoori chef as a wedding present!! This grinning little bloke who spoke no English but was an amazing cook was living in the happy couples garage, quite happily , he was indentured to the brides family in Pakistan because of debts owed by his family . The lad was horrified and was trying to sort out the immigration status of the poor bloke in the garage . But as he said his whole extended family couldnt see what the problem was , they all "employ" staff in a similar vein in their indian restaurants .

So heres a few horror stories to remind you that unless you really look you dont see the awful things that are going on around you , theres a lot of people who quote the "stealing our jobs " mantra who have no idea what is actually happening in this country . Slavery is alive and we are in Lincolnshire not London , open your eyes and look !!

Doctor Tales

Well heres a surprise , we saw a useful member of the medical profession yesterday, a wee child ,bum doctor consultant , he informed Mr BH that he is 99.99% sure that he doesnt have bowel cancer or anything else sinister down in the depths , but will book him another CT scan to confirm last years MRI scans , he says that all the bottom half problems Mr BH is having ,from the gradual deterioration of his spine discs and bone causing more and more nerve damage .  He says they cant do a colonoscopy as it would do more damage than good  because of the nerve damage and hes somewhat baffled that a GP  would suggest this . We did point out that the said GP had sent Mr BH for physio because there is nothing showing on his MRI to show why he is in constant pain . We got a raised eyebrow at that point .  So thats one appointment down and 2 more scans to add to the list hes awaiting .
We are still awaiting the results of his head CT its been sat at the doctors for over a week but he hasnt been able to get an appointment , no change there .
Here is a tale told to me by Mr Bah Humbugs friend , hes a bloke that doesnt bother his doctor very often but he recently went into his local GP surgery to book an appointment , next to reception was a very large poster stating you must book 2 appointments if you have more than one problem , so he asked for 2 appointments only to be told he couldnt book 2 appointments they needed  to be booked for different days and times and he must ring at 8.30 in the morning to book each appointment they no longer book appointments at the desk .
Now Mr BHs friend works and is unable to ring at 8.30  every day until he gets an appointment so he pointed out this fact , he was then told if he was at work he obviously didnt need an appointment .
At this point he had to walk away .
He managed to ring up 2 days on the trot only to be told there were no appointments, on the third day he finally got through as far as the triage nurse who told him to ring again tomorrow to take paracetamol and fluids and go to bed .  at which point he pointed out his testicles were after 5 days of trying to get an appointment, now the size of a football and the paracetamol wernt doing a whole lot , they sent an ambulance!!! he was at work !!

Skint

Well I excelled myself  this weekend and survived the wet muddy hell of the scooter rally.  Thanks to his mate sponsoring the event for us , bores me to tears but it made Mr BH a happy man he got to spend lots of time talking gibberish with his mates  and i mostly slept through the whole event ..lol

As usual his mates are suitably appalled by the state hes in , most hadnt seen him since last summer , his mate was a huge help with the getting him around and  the up  in a morning side of things . But by Saturday Night he was exhausted and because of the mud, content to hold court in the tent . He was most impressed that he wasnt the most crippled there , a couple were wandering round with portable oxygen , endless crutches and sticks and a bloke with Motor Neurone in an electric wheelchair with a pair of carers kept getting stuck in the mud and having to be rescued it was a memorial rally for a friend of Mr BH who died of cancer and were all getting old .   I once again proved myself to be weird and an oddball by not drinking , snoring by 9pm  and walking the mile and a half into Syston  to wander round the charity shops . I think the last act just appalled everyone...lol   Didnt  buy a thing not due to poverty but because they were so damned expensive , the one notable exception The Caudes Equines Shop , never seen a shop with so much craft stuff , mountains of it , hidden away in a tiny modern shopping precinct . glorious , cheap and full of wonderful . But I was good and didnt buy a thing, its all about needs not wants at the moment .

On the shopping front the kids are being wonderful , though im not so sure about the nutrition levels of what they buy , diets are very much out of the window for the foreseeable future , im still wasting away, because there are a lot of things i cant eat due to my insides having been reorganised . Im still the size of a hippo but im back to my small hippo clothes at the moment .

This months shopping list will include , sugar for jam making , razors for my pet ewok , toilet rolls thanks to Penny the toilet roll killer who is growing at a rate of knots . Gram Flour , sack of Onions, something i dont grow because they are so cheap to buy . Endless everyday value from Tesco because its the nearest supermarket and they keep sending me vouchers that make a big difference even Tescos realise were poverty stricken. All topped up by the occasional yellow label item from the Coop in the next village . I did manage to score a good bagfull  yesterday thanks to my son , £3.75 for loads of bread, new potatoes in herb butter and mushrooms . Sadly the Moy Park chicken shop is under renovation till the 7th so i cant do a chicken run , im hoping the prices dont go up due to the renovation , we will see .  Now I just need to see if payday comes around on Friday , I await this with interest!!

Progress?

Has there been any progress?  Nope , his mandatory reconsideration has been rejected and was failed completely not a single point given .  So now we must await a very large form and then a tribunal which will be months , somewhere between 5 months and 2 years due to the huge backlog of appeals.
On a plus side we actually had a visitor  , a mate of Mr Bah Humbug , who is the average working bloke , works 60 hours a week, his missus has just been told she has heart problems, she also works hideous hours , theyre barely keeping up with the bills . He was appalled that we could be left with nothing at all , despite Mr having worked since he left school. We will probably never see him again as we served as a horrifying reminder of what happens these days if one of you becomes ill ,  He offered to take us out for a meal which we politely refused , mainly because we dont have the fuel money to go and get back here .

Today im expecting a call from my boss because i told the firm I work for on Friday that im grounded due to lack of funds. I forked out my last £50 on fuel last week I have nothing now for 2 weeks .  My work licences are due next month and i have nothing to fund them either  so i guess this is it work wise . I cant keep paying to have a job , they never catch up with what they owe you ever, and if you walk away you never see the money they owe you either .
 So where we go from here i dont know ? Ebay methinks .

Wait I do know , in theory we are going on an all expenses paid trip to a wet muddy field at Leicester , Mr BHs best friend is funding him a weekend at a scooter rally , small problem we have his urgent brain scan on Friday , but at least this means he cant try to ride there , he is kidding himself that he could, but we dont need to rub in the fact that those days really have past .

Biggest tragedies  of the week ?  I snapped my garden fork off digging potatoes  ..lol   I also have a badly swollen knee for no apparent reason , so im hobbling about a wee bit . It peed it down so no funds from car boot this week .  The daft things you run out of ?  Razors !!  So Mr Bah Humbug is now looking rather like an Ewok , in a cute furry sort of way ......

The Party Season

What to say..mmmmm , well I picked up some holiday cover , either that or yet another staff member has walked out..lol  this is a big risk , the big risk being will i get paid this month or will the firm go into liquidation again because they cant make the wage bill ?

Despite being cured by the DWP Mr BH hasnt been to well the last couple of weeks , im not so sure that isnt caused by the stress of our current situation , we managed to see a GP the other day , the nice one who always seems to be on maternity leave , she must have a huge family..lol  . So now hes got to await a head CT appointment due to some really odd neurological problems hes having ,  we can add that to his ENT appointment thats been 6 months cancelled 5 times still waiting for his next one . His urgent be seen in 2 weeks bum doctor appointment thats now been cancelled 6 times and been over 6 months.  Orthopedics dont want to see him again , his hip and pelvic injections having been totally ineffective , they have once again come up with theres nothing more they can do . Thats 5 consultants and 3 different hospitals  all say the same , but the DWP know better .

Odd fact , they now ration the heavy duty painkillers he has for when he does something dumb or takes a tumble , bit bazaar as these were what they wanted him to take daily on cost grounds before he insisted on seeing the pain consultant , it has to be really bad for him to take them as they knock him out and turn him into a grinning zombie . But he is allowed 4 a day in short bursts because otherwise we would be cluttering up A&E every time he tumbled . It would seem your only allowed 5 days worth now because people sell them!!   We could be rich and not know it .

Heres a little DWP logic to lighten the situation
Pain does not score any points in an assessment
If you have had a operation since your last assessment you must have been cured (if only)
There are no points for mental illness caused by your physical condition
100m walking in the DWP universe can be measured at 20m with a normal measure , even if you never asked to see the person walk .and only pointed to a chair in the garden  less than 20m away .

So this month we have achieved , all the bills got paid because we sold some stuff , we ate rather well because i grew a lot of veg this year , its my birthday and the kids have bought me fuel !!! so i can do more work i might get paid for and its raining properly at last , so the apples and pears may finally swell ready for the first harvest .

Just Knit It

So in the depths of the dry and arid wastelands that are the fen edge what have i been up to?  Truthfully not a lot , work has dried up , we dont do a whole lot during the school holidays , plus theres the small matter of the receivership and the new investors the men in charge are currently threshing out a deal with .  Its surprising how much i can save by not going to work , so we are just managing on the odd car boot and a bit of ebay at the moment , our caseworker has gone off sick so nothing much happening in the world of form filling and scrounging off the state .
Im just building up to restarting the ebay shop during the school holidays and for a change i will run it into xmas  , I decided its better to car boot and have a good clear out through the decent weather , the local car boot is now free , so if i make £20+ a week selling total crap I can live with that and it keeps us in bread milk and fuel .
  Theres a certain snobbery at the car boots , the stall holders are mainly men of a certain age who are as miserable as sin and class a £100 a week as their pocket money . I had a bit of a spat with one next to me the other week .

I wouldnt get out of bed to sell the shit you do .

Really??

Bloody junk that should go in the bin .

I view it as recycling , theres a use for everything .

Your even giving stuff away, whats the bloody point in that .

I was giving away a box of jam jars and a box of eggboxes , I knew someone would have a use for them.  I also give away stuff im sick of the sight of ..lol  the ends of stuff ive had a big pile of , or the cant be bothered to pack it back into the car stuff . The eggboxes got me a dozen lovely eggs from the lady who took them , im more than happy with that .

Its such a spiteful selfish world we live in and its the little things that make me happy . sitting outside at 5am reading , because the hot flushes are back with a vengeance stress methinks .  The orchids growing in the lawn hence the peculiar cutting pattern..lol  , bee watching in the clover beds  etc etc


Meanwhile this bit of tattyness brought a smile to my face , take a close look at the red hat at the back , yep back in the 60s it was acceptable to mount a golliwog on top of you kids head .....how times have changed

Bored

Being poor is boring ...that should be the whole of this post ..lol
But its not , today im sat here trying to justify going to a sale for the day just to get a break from Mr Bah Humbug and his endless bad tempered, woe is me attitude .
He has crashed and burned mentally yet again , not a big surprise under the circumstances i must admit , refusing to wash and shave or change his clothes , I know he has mental health problems , but once again hes refusing to see the doctor and hes just so damned nasty to us all including the munchkin that life is now hard work .  I feel as if im the referee in a rather sarcastic boxing match , nothing is right for him.

The dreaded interview with housing benefit went rather strangely , told them the circumstances and there was an awful lot of tooth sucking , it seems once again im technically guilty of fraud , because he has been in receipt of ESA since March and i havent informed them , but they hadnt  informed us till a week ago either !!  He receives no money he hasnt for over 2 years now so how would we know . It seems the information was never sent to them either , so they hadnt recalculated anything , so they have to recalculate from march ....err but we havent received anything so the calculation should be the same ...much tooth sucking again.

So once again  i was issued the eviction speech  , so i just pointed out that my partner is disabled and this is a disabled adapted property and that we do have a caseworker . More tooth sucking
I finally left with a form for discretionary Housing Benefit which i will give to our caseworker to try and sort out and a lecture on how i need to work more hours ...so a result methinks !!

Try not to laugh at this , received a phone call from the boss , it seems that they have been in receivership for a week because they couldnt make the wage bill this month , had i not noticed a different name on my pay slip?   Not really as i hadnt had a damned wage slip and they now owe me a considerable sum of money , peanuts to them but not to me .
I wish they had gone to the wall then we could get some financial help !!

My Way

We ive cleared loads of crap by doing a couple of car boot sales , still lots more to go as i havent even tackled the sheds yet...lol
Sarcastic son has been a big help and daughter is starting to sort me tons of stuff out , just donated a pile of university text books that will go on to ebay once the kids get there results , law and politics are good sellers , so thats a couple more weeks of bills paid .
I have to sort out another bank account because theyve shut my personal account ,i havent had a wage from the business in months , im once again credit blacklisted ( cant eat your credit rating so not that bothered ) Creditors wise some have been lovely , Anglian Water however are their usual twatish selves we had to go to the regulators last time we had financial problems !!
Found out that most banks wont accept me because I dont have a UK Passport , so will try to get round the Coop as they have social exclusion policies that arent affected by a bad credit rating .

British Gas rang to drop a bombshell, we will no longer be able to use home vending on our  prepayment meter from later in the month , we must accept a smart meter , yes great, but they dont work here, we have no mobile signal of the correct type , plus if you take a British Gas meter thay are different to other suppliers and then you cant change supplier!! British Gas are currently the cheapest prepayment suppliers in this area , but we have no shop to vend a key the nearest post office is a village away but it hardly opens anymore and we dont have enough regular income  to put a weeks worth of electric on at a time !! we use the odd £10 in Paypal to top up normally.

Wish me luck im off to North Kesteven Council to try and sort out the Housing Benefit , last time they just started eviction proceedings at that point and accused me of Benefit Fraud !!!  Ho hum out of everything theyre the one that makes me lose the will to live , they have nice staff and a few absolute swines who just think your off the programmes on the telly .

What Fun

So to celebrate destitution I buggered off on a trip to London , my birthday trip from my daughter so all paid for and done in advance . We took the Munchkin on his first trip to a gig rather than a big concert . Alan Doyle and the Beautiful Gypsies.  At the Bush Hall in Shepherds Bush , lovely venue fantastic staff only the size of a large pub , former music hall and bingo hall and you could take kids!!! We were sheltering from the sun round the side of the venue and the munchkin chimes up
Hello Alan !! sign my Ipod case for me
Next thing i know hes been kidnapped by a dodgy Canadian bloke and vanished into the venue to meet the band ..lol
He reappeared well pleased and laden with freebies , what can i say theyre a band of real nice folks . We were right at the front and they stopped for a natter with the munchkin half way through the gig ..lol..hes never stopped singing since we got back

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5nGPgcZ3CWI


On the destitution front ....you all worry to much , we are fine for a couple of months at least , its going to be grim but its been grim in the past and weve managed .
For those from abroad , let me explain . Because i am self employed i receive nothing from the state if sick or out of work for 6 months . it makes no difference if we split up , I would still receive nothing. Mr Bah Humbug would receive something if i left him , not much and it would be eaten up by carers fees , he still wouldnt be given anything to live on until his appeal is heard and their are layers to the appeals which the government is spending on lawyers to fight the appeals thats why it takes so long . Many of the appeals are queuing for the High Courts that can take up to 2 years , they hope you die during this time !!
A benefits queen "friend" of the type you see on the TV , never worked , different ailment everytime they threaten her with work, all the kids statemented with different problems did give me some advice.
I should dump Mr BH  in the Local Jobcenter and scream the place down about how hes incontinent and let him crap all over the floor , thats what she would do !!  They soon cough up then ...REALLY!!
In the world where i live you just plant another 20 cabbage plants , and dig out the bed pads you made before we got the damned PIP payments in the first place and just get on with it......

Thanks for all your kind words , we have internet for another 2 months  , so i will keep you posted

Celebrate The Apocalypse

Quite where to begin , a few weeks ago Mr Bah Humbug  had a PIP reassessment , both myself and his caseworker were present and he sobbed through most of it due to the embarrassing nature of the questions . He had a further year to run but they decided to visit him early .
Last week we received a letter to say he scored nil points , he has been cured by the DWP , he has no visable signs of disability and because he can drive a manual vehicle no mobility needs, we were expecting the rate for mobility to drop because they have removed the mental health descriptors from the questions because to many people were getting it !!
But to lose all of it is bizarre , he has a degenerative condition , its not getting better , he can drive a few miles at most and thats because most of his disability is in his right hand side . when he arrives he has to sit for at least 30 minutes and wait for the feeling to come back to his legs before hes able to walk !!
Then the next day he gets another letter saying he has been awarded full ESA  but because he hasnt paid contributions for 2 years they wont be paying him a penny . He didnt apply for this, he applied for the work with support component this allows him to continue with his 4 hours a week at college.
So our caseworker has started an appeal for both benefits , it is disheartening to find that this can take up to 2 years .
So thats it we have only my unreliable minute income to live on , this is going to effect our Housing Benefit so we may well end up homeless or having to move because this is a disabled adapted property and officially Mr Bah Humbug is no longer disabled . Caseworker says she will start that argument next week once the appeals are lodged .
To say Mr Bah Humbug is down is an understatement , hes doing his best to be vile to all of us in the hope we go off to a "better" life , not happening im afraid , but its true he would be financially better off without us , even though hes cured they would have to provide care workers each morning to get him up washed and dressed , do all his cooking , washing  etc etc .
The main stumbling block is the fact that we are a universal credit area , so i cant apply for tax credits , I cant apply for anything because im self employed , i cant do a damn thing about any of this , just hope they actually pay me this month !!

Kitty Porn


 Penny is now an official Gnome killer !!!  just as photogenic as always , shes truly gorgeous but never stops , with her been so dark its been suggested she wears a hi viz , like to see Mr Bah Humbug achieve that one !!

Speechless


A Young Baldrick tale that really beggers belief!!!

Mr Bah Humbug receives a phone call from a housing officer it got a wee bit tense , so he once again throws the phone at me and says sought that !!!
Now once again Young Baldrick has cut us off , hes been ignoring arranged meetings not answering his phone or door etc etc .
It seems hes been refusing to engage at all with any of the agencies hes involved him and his housing officer has had numerous complaints from another resident , so she needed to serve him with notice of eviction!!!
Did we have access to his flat ?
Well we do have a set of keys but he does leave the keys in the door to stop anyone getting in . So we popped down there and i broke in ...oops used the keys...honest .
He was laid stinking, wrapped in his curtains on the sofa  at 2 oclock in the afternoon !!!
The place was a stinking mess , i dont think hed thrown out anything since he moved in , fag ends everywhere , empty bottles everywhere, rotting food wrappers and ball bearings everywhere..WTF !!!
So surprise Step mommy is stood at the side of your sofa screaming in your lug to get your lazy arse up !!
So heres what we found , the little treasure had ordered a replica gun from Amazon which fires ball bearings and peppered the walls with it , thousands of metal ball bearings , it looks like measles in the plaster work!!  He has been using it in the garden so its a wonder he hasnt had a visit from The Men In Black to place a red dot on his forehead!! .....confiscated and destroyed by his dad
The mushrooms that were crawling in maggots had walked into his slow cooker the day before and that was his food for the week , hed gone and bought 30 jars of spices but no other actual food !!
Hes stopped taking his medication ...surprise
So I had a long chat with his housing Officer and it seems she was unaware that he has mental health problems the agency that is supposed to be supporting him never mentioned it .  Why isnt he living with us ?
Because we wouldnt be able to keep our tenancy if he lived with us !!!!! we are overcrowded and hes a nightmare .
 So where do we go from here ?
Well hes back in touch with his support agency . His paperwork is up to date . Hes currently starving and without electricity (at least that should stop the noise complaints )  he can always spend the next week hungry and cleaning , that was the excuse for the state of the place , he had nothing to clean with , so i popped to the shop and bought cleaning equipment ,  can he come here to stop as he doesnt get paid for another week ...Nope

Election Eve Broadcast

So here we are nearly at the finishing post ...
And all I can think to say is what a shower of shit are asking for our votes
 Mr Corbyn is a decent honest bloke from a different universe , if he wins we are condemning him to the most poisonous job ever , trying to sort out Brexit . there has been lots of truly evil press and TV against him , but he seems to have enjoyed the whole campaigning experience . Hes doesnt seem to be phased by any of it . now there attacking Diane Abbot endlessly because shes not such a polished professional as some of the others .
Mrs May , well youve had seven years to make any impact on the whole terrorism scenario but seem to be more pleased that youve saved a bit of cash on policing . Sorry love but we have a whole generation of mainly young men in this country who your policies increasingly marginalise , they have no jobs no purpose no future and a few  muslim ones think they have found a purpose in terrorism .
So im going to ask some pretty callous question here .

 Does the money thats been saved outweigh the loss and ruining of lives you have caused ?

The magic money tree that means you cant give anyone in the NHS a proper pay rise have a different branch for funding Trident missiles ?

I travel all over the county of Lincolnshire and the sea of blue placards in pensioners gardens would imply that theyre all going to be voting Tory ,like turkeys voting for Xmas , theres not a thing I can change about that fact.

The one thing ive gathered from this whole campaign is that the press and TV are disgusting and biased, its pretty obvious to anyone , I dont think for one minute Mr Corbyn is an IRA sympathizer but equally i cant believe the disgusting articles stating that Mrs Mays father was involved in one of the churches pedophile scandals .

So vote for whoever you choose thats my verdict , I dont mind who it is . But please vote , express an opinion do something thats all i ask

Bloody Monday

Its 10.30 and its already one of those days !!!! Friday I was summoned into the bank , my only small reliable monthly payment hadnt gone into the bank . I ring my employers , who were very shifty and they  told me they had sorted it , there was a computer problem it would be in by 3pm .
Then this morning i find my phone has been cut off and my car insurance cancelled ...ffs like i need this hassle at the moment , still trying to sort this mess out , not helped by my other half giving me the death stare and refusing to lend me his phone ...grrrr
So I have to prioritize this unholy shitting mess once again caused by my poxy employers , im trying to take on other work ...lot of good with no phone access and not being able to drive.
 Though one company did make me snigger last week they wanted me to work for them because i have tons of experiance , then they asked my age and the whole tone of the interview changed , he finally said that that i didnt fit the demographic they employ , in other words i dont have a penis and im the wrong age ......
My sole plus point in life is little Penny , the least photographic kitten in the litter , Penny because shes a Soft Kitty and my other half loves Big Bang Theory .  Small , very feisty and mental in the way that kittens are really good at . Mr BH went and picked her and made a grave error of judgement in that you cant see a black tabby against a dark carpet , so hes constantly tripping over her and treading on her , her revenge was to wee in his sun hat.....crap photos im afraid shes never still long enough to get a decent picture  once she gets her proper eye colour her looks will improve, for now shes just a weedy little scrap

General Election Broadcast No 4

Last week I was listening to a group of Police Officers gossiping , they were laughing at the fact that they are going to magic up an extra 10 000 police , cant even remember which party came up with this one . As one of them pointed out " They cant even recruit enough to keep the numbers up now , the pensions are shocking , the job stinks and everybody with any sense is leaving .
Then theres my mother ...AAARRRGGGHHH ...I already know shes a genetic Tory voter , if they said they were going to gas all benefit claimants and throw all the immigrants off the White Cliffs of Dover, they still wouldnt be hardcore enough for her . 83 and hates everyone..lol

You know that scruffy little shite Corbyn .

Mother!!

He used to be in the IRA

No he didnt mother

I bet he supports the Muslims

Hes a pacifist mother , he supports everyone .

As you may have guessed , she was trying to get me to hang up and i wasnt taking the bait ..lol

Its all the scroungers dragging this country down , the bad back brigade they all want putting down , they should sterilize all the unemployed , just breeding more scroungers etc etc etc on and on and on .

So I just pointed out that ,once Mrs May had forced her to get an equity loan on her home and robbed her of everything but 100k  , she would still be in a care home ...its been very quiet since

General Election Broadcast No 3

Did you witness the appearance of Mr and Mrs May on the One Show ?  all very strange but her and her OH seem to still like each other after a lot of years . I can never fault her taste in shoes ( see I said something positive)  sadly I can never forget the designer leather trousers made from the skins of  Sanctioned Benefit Claimants she wore a few months ago .
Then there was the time she lost a few votes this week  by mentioning that she thought fox hunting was a good idea , see they let her off script for a minute and her campaign managers are crying in the corner...lol
Meanwhile young Jeremy Corbyn seems to be quite enjoying himself tootling round the country , kissing dodgy babies and shaking the hands of all and sundry . Bless him he achieved the status of demigod when he managed to run over a BBC reporters toe from the passenger seat of a car driven by police protection . I really like the bloke but i can see his faults and it does seem his campaign is being managed by Simon Cowell its a wee bit One Direction .
Our local candidate has once again stunned us , someone did point out they thought they were hallucinating walking round Sleaford  this week , its Shetland ponies up and down the High Street in Vote Conservative banners .
So heres my overview.

 Are the Conservatives not taking this Election at all seriously , do they really think they cant possibly lose?
If they do lose , are they counting on the incoming boundry changes to finish the Labour
Party
The CPS have decided that they cant possibly prosecute anyone for electoral fraud . Bleedin Scary, has it been pointed out that the CPS will cease to exist if they do?

Just remember one party politics is what runs North Korea and Syria , thats the really scary thought !!

Pyrex

When did ebay become so damned complicated?  really struggling with it at the moment not running the shop just using it to sell a few bits and bobs that we dont need , it just seems to be designed to run on a smart phone . Something i dont have and try to avoid at all costs , in fact mobile phones are the one aspect of modern life i detest , I could live without one if it wasnt for work .  Then my wretched phone decided to ring 999 under its own steam this morning 3 times in a row .Why just Why!!!
Got a long lecture about wasting their  time , i heard it talking to itself or i would never have known , apparently EE are experiencing network problems . So ive turned it off and chucked it into a drawer till i need it .
The only pleasure is veg gardening down in the windswept wilderness , bleedin mice have nobbled my sweetcorn it had nicely got shooting up , the potatoes are just up , lots of orkney blue again this year, its a short season potato so the cabbages will go in straight after theyre done , couldnt find my favourite pink fir apples this year , unless i ordered them which i couldnt afford . Theyre may be a few strays pop up, im hoping . Somewhat surprisingly im getting a bit of help from my son , im not complaining , digging reduces me to agony .
The greenhouse is likely never to get finished , mainly because Mr BH is an annoying perfectionist , if hed just vanish for a couple of days it would be up and working , I dont need perfect i just want it up .
Must get round to sorting the strawberry netting , the thrush will be so frustrated but i want to leave them to polinate for a couple of weeks first , then theres the cabbage nets to sort out , the joys of living in the countryside , the wildlife wants to share all your food !!
Mr Bah Humbug went to see some kittens yesterday they will be ready in a couple of weeks, I knew he would give in eventually,  a small furbaby would cheer everyone up , he wants two but we can barely afford one , we arent on Income Support so dont qualify for help with the cost of neutering .
On the Thrift side I managed to get to a Car Boot at New York on Sunday , no its not a large place its a crossroads with a barren windy field with added bucket bog , tons of stalls lots of great stuff and i bought a tray of cauliflowers and calabrese,  they are much further on than mine so it gives the crops a head start a whole £2.00 spent .
I'm going to try and flog these JAJ pyrex lovelies on facebook , my favourite pattern but they would be just stuffed in a cupboard unused so they need to go . If they dont sell I will hide them somewhere ..lol  you can have to many mixing bowls !!

General Election Broadcast No2

 Caroline Elizabeth Johnson – The Conservative Party candidate for Sleaford and Hykeham ...pair of supporters  seen riding round Sleaford town center in a couple of Sinclair C5s Tuesday ...Why just Why ? Nothing better to spend funds on ? After all Attila the Hun could sit as a candidate for the conservative party here and get elected , we are an area of nothing but pensioners and most of them arent poor . The poor and the disabled are mostly shunted out to the villages to poor quality council accommodation so its easy to believe everythings just fine here. Sadly my vote is worthless here , the blue rinses and the farming community will vote Tory forever . 
So I will leave you with this doodle that came to mind the other day , I think it sums it up , with apologies to Pastor Niemoller
