I popped into Tesco yesterday; there was no pasta on the shelves (no petrol in the pump either).
The PM announced a rise in NI tax this week. I understand this is to offset some of the damage they have done to the NHS over the past decade. Fantastic. (And yes, Whitey is still on the moon).
Well, talking with my family when I had the distinct need to panic buy and hoard face-masks and rubber gloves the other day, (I didn’t); not only is this deeply rooted in the brains of every one of us, it is (at least I believe) amplified in some groups.
By the end,
The BBC said tens of thousands,
The Independent a million.
It can’t be that hard to estimate.
Hey folks, Nothing, Really matters NOW Except Coming Together And self-determining. All Else Is Naught. Fight!
The Canary Has all but Died. Given up the ghost. Called time on the miners. The children of the miners. This, the next step in the rape of society.

Accept that this is the way it is, that humanity is flawed no matter where you look and realise that we can only hope to arrive at truth or reality if we lower our guard and collaborate
Yes, these are just names, and names, well, you can call anything, anything; the best advertising agencies worked this out years ago.
When I say negative, I mean urine that has been analysed and found to be normal; just the right level of sugar, protein or salt; not too much or too little. Goldilocks pee.
I think I have provided an evolutionary explanation for the existence or right and left; Democrat and Republican, Whig and Tory. (here). I suspect the caveat is that in our modern society these inherited advantages break-down; they can and seemingly do become counter-productive. I’ll take as an example food and fat. We evolved to live in smallContinue reading “Left and Right; Time for a tax?”
The plan had been to explain to people the why, what, where of my trip to India. We are heading-out, a small contingent of NHS from Rotherham on the 17th of May, Mumbai via Abu Dhabi – which is the capital of the United Arab Emirates, not Scooby’s catchphrase. I wrote a couple of monthsContinue reading “India, etc.”
