oops, went to bed and forgot to post it! Sorry!
Hello again iiwiiers
Busy tomorrow, you're maybe slightly less likely to get something decent than normal as I've got something else I should be writing, which I've already mentioned, but that might mean you get a completely full one knowing me. The other thing isn't something I want to put off really though, so who knows. I'm away Monday to Wednesday, so service will probably be affected then too, I only mention it as some fool is regarding the 'story' as embargoed until I mention it! Some people, I don't know...
Anne has drawn my attention to a petition which any UK resident reading should sign. I won't tell you what it's about as as an iiwiier you know you'll agree with it. Wouldn't it be just dandy if life was as simple as being an iiwiier? Not boring, just the rubbish bits of rubbishy rubbish taken out so you can get on with learning about rubbish. Mmmm!
Every cloud has a silver lining, so they say. Well, they don't really, and quite right too, it's just not true, but - anyway. The bad news is that the middle east peace process is falling to bits. But the good news is that everyone agrees that it's Tony Blair's fault! Maybe it's something to do with the fact that he said 'thank you for appointing me to sort this out, now I'm going to fuck off to go on Oprah to tell everyone how what the world needs is for everybody to be more religious.' Prick. I'm sorry, but he is, innee? Believe me, I would love for him not to have been a prick. Who are all these idiots who prefer him to Gordon Brown? Gordon Brown could never be a tenth of the prick Tony Blair is. And he's said plenty of things that I thought were pretty pricky.
Tories take decisive action - Labour recovering in the polls? Quick, time to get racist! "Our country has adapted because people have been tolerant which has often required a lot of forbearance and acceptance of things they didn't like. We all have to accept things we don't like. That is how Britain has evolved. When I go and address an Islamic audience I always point this out." Because they're all intolerant? Funny how he's survived every time he's said that to them...
Home sellers are being forced to accept offers on average 9% below their asking price! I'm sorry, but I think that's just wrong. They shouldn't have to sell their houses for that unless they agree to. One thing puzzles me though. Whoever it is that has the power to force them to do this - why don't they force them to accept even less? Perhaps it's some fiend that has nothing to gain financially from the lower price but who loves the number nine. Oh, but it says on average! So, it's not always 9%. It must be some diabolical fiend who loves the number nine and averages. So, who is it? Doctor Mode? Professor Mean? Or Captain Median? If the stupid BBC had told us what sort of average their 9% figure was we could work it out and apprehend him. Thanks to their sloppiness more people will lose money before he is caught. It's just not fair.
that's all from me for now
see you around
