  • 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.

I couldn’t let this day go by …

Posted by Big John on September 9, 2015

Today thousands of my fellow subjects citizens are celebrating the fact that ‘er Maj’ has been on the throne for 63 years which means, I think, that she is our longest reigning monarch.

Why they celebrate Gawd only knows. Perhaps one day they will wake up to the fact that the monarchy is an expensive irrelevance, and see that the Queen’s limited constitutional role would be better performed by an elected president who would be paid a modest salary for the duration of his tenure. In this day and age it is quite unacceptable that the political office of ‘Head of State’ should remain hereditary.

If you don’t agree with me now, you may do when you remember who will be the next one to sit on the throne, …

… pompous potty Prince Charlie !

    Not my business to comment on something like this, so of course I will. 1. from the outside, and of course not having to live under the royals, it seems to me it’s the best show around for a pound per year- cheaper than admittance to madame tussauds or the crown jewels. 2. Is it just me, or since the pythons went off, have we had more and more news of the royal family?

    It could be a lot worse. You could have to look at a bunch of people like our Republican candidates for President of the U.S.

    Hooray for Betty who said exactly what I was thinking…and speaking of wasting money we do it by the bushel load here and then cry about not having enough. I’m disgusted with the whole thing …
