Shoreham Airshow 2007
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.


Date: 3rd May 2013


Well well well – it doesn’t surprise me how well they’ve done in the Local Elections. I know that this rarely translates into votes at the General Election but I sincerely hope it serves as a wake-up call to David Cameron and even more so to Nick Clegg and alerts them to the ‘real’ worries confronting the electorate. Perhaps they will now stop wasting our money on minority issues such as Gay Marriage. I have many well loved Gay friends in very happy and long lived relationships and they themselves think that Gay Marriage was a step too far. And as for the millions wasted on AV – which Cameron promised Clegg!!!!! And yet did Clegg keep his word with regard to Boundary changes – No, he didn’t. I have read that, had the boundaries been changed and more fair, the Conservatives would have almost romped home at the last election instead of having to form a Coalition with a Party which has never held office within living memory.

The Local Elections vote has shown that the public at large are more concerned about unchecked immigration and our membership of the EU. I’ve written before and stated that I don’t think most of us are equipped with enough knowledge to say whether we should or should not be part of the European Union BUT what concerns the majority is the European Court of Human Rights and its implications for so many facets of our everyday life. A prime example, of course, is our inability to deport terrorists who wish us nothing but harm and yet are not only allowed to remain in this country (which often gives them the free speech they would not be allowed in their own), to draw benefits, to take advantage of a Legal Aid System, but to openly abuse us and call for the downfall of all those who do not subscribe to what they see as the only true religion. It is total madness.

I don’t have enough knowledge but I do know that the original Lisbon Treaty was drawn up after the war to ensure that never again would there ever be anything like the Holocaust. This was absolutely right and proper but it has been mangled and misinterpreted, very often by our Left leaning judiciary, so that terrorists can remain here in a safe haven because they might be tortured in their own countries most of which have the death penalty.

We really do live in a Mad Mad Mad World.
