  • My Life and Times

    I was born in 1939 BC.
    That’s ‘Before Computers’.

    Luckily I survived the following events in my life, such as

    World War II, The London Blitz, Rationing, and worst of all… Archbishop Temple’s School.




    During the mid 1950s I was enjoying Rock ‘n’ Roll and being a first generation teenager, when suddenly, just like Elvis, I found myself in uniform during ‘The Cold War’…and then




    I became ‘a family’. Which meant that I sort of missed the ‘swinging sixties’, but still managed to look a complete prat in the 70s, just like everyone else.




    During the ‘Thatcher Years’ I lost my hair and a lot of people lost a good deal more. My career fluctuated to say the least as I was demoted, promoted, fired and hired a number of times, but still I managed to stagger on into a welcome retirement and to celebrate 56 years of happy marriage.

Dave’s dodgy dialogue.

Posted by Big John on April 5, 2011

I see that our ‘Dave’ is on a visit to Pakistan. I hope that he doesn’t mention the cricket or he could upset them as much as he did last year when he accused “elements” in that country of exporting terrorism .

Now, obviously after careful consideration, he is going to share secret information
with Pakistani security agents for dealing with IEDs (improvised explosive devices), the roadside bombs used by the Taliban to kill our soldiers. How long does he think that it will take for those same “elements” (they didn’t go away Dave) to pass on this information to insurgents heading for Afghanistan ?

Oh!.. and before I forget, he has promised £650 million ($1 billion +) in aid for education in Pakistan, just as plans for new schools are being ‘shelved’ all over the UK due to his government’s cutbacks. He even has the nerve to tell the Pakistanis that … “Many of your richest people are getting away without paying much tax at all – and that’s not fair” ! 

Would some kind Muslim please…

….      throw a shoe at him !
