  • 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.

“One man’s terrorist is another …”

Posted by Big John on March 23, 2017

Yesterday a terrorist was shot dead in London.. Good !.. Regrettably a brave police officer and two other people also died and many were injured.

This mindless act of violence has, quite rightly, been condemned by members of the press and our political elite, some of whom only recently lauded another ‘terrorist’, the late Martin McGuinness, a former commander in the IRA, an organisation responsible for the murder of more than 1,800 civilians and members of the security forces during ‘The Troubles’.

 What a difference a day makes !

    I have always thought the Japanese civilians in Hiroshima and Nagasaki thought of Americans as terrorists also.

  2. Amazing how some of the world’s most despicable thugs can become instant heroes when they die.

    I was just sick when I heard (and watched) what happened in your Country. This whole new “terrorism by car and knife” has caught on all over the globe and is so hard to detect.
