  • 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.

What can I say ? .. “We’ve gorn and dunnit now !”

Posted by Big John on June 25, 2016

Maybe not quite so dramatic as ‘The Fall of the Berlin Wall’ or ‘The Storming of the Bastille’, but ‘Brexit’ was pretty dramatic nonetheless. To to me, it would appear to represent something of a ‘revolution’ by millions of  ordinary British people who resented the doom-laden prophecies of the massed ranks of our financial and out of touch political Establishment.

Who knows how this will all turn out in the end ? .. All I know is that the good news is that ‘our Dave’ is on the way out … and the bad news ? … He could be replaced as Prime Minister by Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson. Yes ! Bloody ‘Bojo’ ! Time to send for …

Madame de la Guillotine !

  1. This could have been averted, as all drastic repercussions can, if only politicians were the least bit sensitive to the people they supposedly work for. The fallout will be serious, most so for the generation coming up. And really, it was a knee jerk response!

  2. Leave it to the Brits to do it without dumping a single tea bag in the Thames. Admiration.

    To quote a line from Juno and the Paycock a play by Sean O’Casey…

    “Th’ whole worl’s in a terrible state o’ chassis” !

  4. A topic well-covered in U.S. media. But hearing from a raft of pundits remains unsatisfying. There seems little agreement other than Brexit will produce several types of short-term problems in financial markets (a few showed up almost immediately), although most of the negatives are poorly defined at the moment. Here’s hoping the chaos truly is short-term.

    We live in extremely strange times, John. It’s July 8th as I write this and our problems are just beginning here in the United States…scary.
