Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

MR. BROWN AND THE GOVERNMENT

Date: 4th May 2009

There have been some superbly funny pieces on the Internet about our Government and it's leader.  I can't put them all on but thought this one of the best.

 23rd Psalm (amended!)

 

GORDON BROWN IS MY SHEPHERD, I SHALL NOT WORK.

HE LEADETH ME BESIDE THE STILL FACTORIES.

HE RESTORETH MY FAITH IN THE CONSERVATIVE PARTY.

HE GUIDETH ME IN THE PATH OF UNEMPLOYMENT.

YEA, THOUGH I WAIT FOR MY DOLE,

I OWN THE BANK THAT REFUSES ME.

BROWN HAS ANNOINTED MY INCOME WITH TAXES,

MY EXPENSES RUNNETH OVER MY INCOME,

SURELY, POVERTY AND HARD LIVING WILL FOLLOW ME ALL THE DAYS OF HIS TERM.

FROM HENCE FORTH WE WILL LIVE ALL THE DAYS

OF OUR LIVES IN A  RENTED HOME WITH AN OVERSEAS LANDLORD.

I AM GLAD I AM BRITISH,

I AM GLAD I AM FREE.

BUT I WISH I WERE A DOG

AND BROWN  WAS A TREE.

A PEOPLE GETS THE GOVERNMENT IT DESERVES

I don't know who wrote this but did we really deserve what we've got at the moment?

It is often argued that we don't pay our politicians enough and that they could earn much more in the Private Sector.  I'd like to see this lot getting jobs in the Private Sector.  They are paid a fair remuneration but have their Gilt Edged Pensions which most in the Private Sector do not have.  And then there are their EXPENSES - Well you wouldn't believe the cheating that's been going on over their First, Second and in some cases Third Homes and the attendant allowances.  Barbara Follett - wife of the multi-millionaire author Ken Follett used up her allowance for Private Body Guards.  As the wife of a millionaire, I wouldn't be charging for allowances and, if needed, I'd expect my husband to pay for Body Guards.  But those of my generation were brought up in a totally different world - we were children of the War years - I think we were a great deal more honest and  a great deal less greedy.  I could fill pages but suggest if you want to see the full extent of the shenanigans that have been going on - look up The Telegraph on line.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they don't find so many of the Conservative Party with their fingers in the jam pot.

10th May -   Addendum -    OOPS and OH Dear

Have just read the papers and heard the News - I'm really sad to read that the Tories have been at it too.  And so have Sinn Fein - who collect their expenses even though they never come near our Parliament.  What a world in which we live!
