Xmas To Go

So all i need to buy now is sprouts , everything is done and dusted bought over the last few months a bit week by week ,  meanwhile my annual xmas morbidness has set in , so this is the last post before the great event , i know you all enjoy the annual turkey fest so i will let you all enjoy .
Mr BH did comment that if we won the lottery would i feel any better about the season , probably not , it just isnt there for me , its a void emotion .
As a child there was nothing to look forward to just endless drunken antics from my mother ,  having to pretend that you were having a great time , stick a smile on for the relatives as you were wheeled out in your ghastly party frock .
When the kids were small i made the effort and stuck that smile on again , watched all that fun  , they never did without , we wernt well off but the excitement was there for them.
So having stuck that smile on all my life ive reached that stage where i dont even try anymore i just hibernate till its over with , cook a big dinner and watch them all enjoy it .
The highlight of xmas thus far is winning a couple of little prizes , a bottle of prosecco that i dont drink , four pairs of socks ever useful and 10 dvds of classic movies when i have no way of playing them kids inform me they have a DVD player in a box somewhere so thats me sorted .
So Merry Xmas may you all have the Xmas you all hope for and desire see you after Boxing Day

Moving On

Some people wonder what makes a lifetime Labour supporter , your either born to it or hard times take you there . My dad back in the 30s had his dad do a runner with my grans younger sister , left my gran with 7 kids and nothing back in the days before the welfare state , my gran was humiliated and shunned by people all her life due to this as if it was her fault . she struggled on but the thing that broke her was the death of her daughter to Diphtheria, the doctor refused to come out because they were poor and she died in my grans arms. He dad never forgot this and we all had it drilled into us every election , now im sure you think this is just another of my socialist rants but oddly not  .
Its a vaccinate your kids soddin rant , there have been cases of Diptheria this year in this country !!
If the NHS crumbles and goes private can you imagine them stopping vaccinating kids unless you can pay ?
Trump is currently refusing to vaccinate kids from flu that is killing them in the border internment camps , kids have died and hes withholding vaccines to score political points. Crappy world that we live in isnt it?

Well Thats Different

If anyone had told me that i would have woken up to miners voting Tory i would have thought i was in an alternate reality . So thats it we now have Minny Trump at the helm , we will shortly be the 53rd state .  Not sure where this country is going but hey thats what what was voted for .
Prepared to give the bloke a chance , but bear in mind , delivering Brexit for the salivating masses may not be the easy ride he thinks .
Thankyou to Jeremy for giving those of us at the bottom of the heap hope for a little while , may your allotment be filled with adoring youngsters prepared to learn that there is an alternative , sorry if that came out a bit creepy and Gary Glitterish.
So where do we go from here ?
We need to educate our young to have compassion and to think for themselves , to be able to say that things are wrong and immoral , to stand out from the crowd and not become a part of the mob . They are our hope for the future , the present is looking very grim .

Election Time

Well the will to blog is dwindling with xmas on the horizon , nothing new there im afraid . its just an even more depressing xmas spirit than usual .
The election process has degenerated into he said, she said .  But i will say this we have spent an awful lot of time using the NHS in the last few years with my other half and his strange medical emergencies.  The huge furor over the child on the floor in A&E  is a bit of a strange one , weve seen plenty of kids curled up on coats on the floor of A&E and in the chairs , weve visited when theres been so many puking kids in A&E its standing room only and pensioners were still waiting for transport at 3am when the clinic they visited finished at 2pm  . When the ambulances are queing down the road to drop people off .  The staff deserve medals on a daily basis , but people get seen they get treated and nobody is asked whether they can afford it .  The NHS has been betrayed by every party for years it cant be run on the cheap .  But we can be sure that Boris plans to sell it off to someone , to many people are living to long because of the NHS and him and his band of elitist twerps dont have to use it so they dont care if it founders .
 Every service and facility we have had to use has been 10 times worse for being given over to private companies , from the risk averse surgeons who will only help those who are the perfect patients who will give them the wonderful figures that show to prove  how much money they are saving .  But if you offer to pay suddenly all the reasons they cant help you vanish. Centralisation of services where you travel miles to see someone for 5 minutes.  GPs who dont have the time to treat anyone , its endless .
Needing the NHS comes to all of us eventually think long and hard where you put that cross

Election Special ?

So last night we had the jolly Mr Farage meeting Andrew Neil on the box , what a cockwomble  the man who has single handedly screwed up the UK voting system and with great glee thinks its wonderful. I think if nothing else i grasped that he is another Tory Light for those who cant quite stomach Boris and his Mafia .  So on the morning of the 13th im sure we be looking at another hung parliament without any clear majority as Boris joins the Lib Dems led by Veruca Salt in raising the flag on another Tory Reich .
However i think the young vote will make a big difference if they can get out of bed and shake off their apathy and not think that Jolly Boris is a bit of a lad . 
One thought, Boris as leader isnt appetising to the female vote ,  a serial womaniser , who left his wife to face cancer alone , has a weakness for vacuous blondes and a trail of offspring here there and everywhere just doesnt  do it for most .

Imput from my mother the other day

Corbyn is a bloody communist .

So it doesnt bother you that the Torys  are witholding the report on their Russian funding ?

She hung up  lol

I still think theres plenty of room for things to swing in either direction in this election ,  somebody did post that the only interview that Boris will give is with Mr Tumble,  nobody can pin this obnoxious git down , waving your arms and waffling and never answering a question will only go so far .   It just takes someone to back him into a corner over some triviality and the real Boris may well shine through, not that anyone will report it except on Channel 4
