I've just seen his feedback thread. Can't be easy looking after your wife with dementia, been closely involved in looking after my Dad and now my mum with it and the pressures trials and pain involved really take their toll, it can be physically and mentally destroying, can't imagine how much  harder it is if it's your life partner and how that ties into feelings we all have with our own mortality and how susceptible to anger we can be when dealing with such issues.


The posts Phil was angry about are flippant and he does have a point about the way people look at the elderly doesn't do society any credit but when you're stressed easy to make these things about principal, when in other circumstances you'd be more patient with flippant posts. When I first came on here the first person I had an argument with was Phil, over complete nonsense, but the more I found out about him the more respect I had for him and he added to the site and I'll be sorry to see him go and will miss him.


I must admit I don't like the current affairs section and stay out of it for my blood pressure I don't like the tone of many of the posters who rarely seem to listen,  are so convinced they are totally right and everyone else is totally wrong, nothing wrong with believing in something or clarity of thought it's the arrogant tone it's rarely fraternal discussion and I've reached a point where I can't be arsed arguing with people who don't listen,  not the same in work we have great debates over things like brexit, Corbyn, Trump. I've always been a steward and seen as very left but always listened and knew people can vote the wrong away over say Brexit because they feel disenfranchised and not listened too but you never just write them off, you work with them, argue with them, unfold the contradictions over time gain their trust and when you're in dispute these people can be the ones who surprise you the most. Not naive and know some are write offs but for all its faults working class debate in work often at a more fraternal level than in academic world, it's amazing the power of The workplace having to work with people face to face day in day out, leads to a level of respect in political conversations rarely seen in social media or on here. maybe it's the format, anonymity, I don't know but I know  I don't enjoy posting in there, so I rarely do. Funny as ironically the tone adopted often reminds me of listening to bosses in work who have swallowed the latest management theory, never two way, talk at you, grandiose, passive aggressive, love the sound of their own voice, but people have heard it all before, don't engage and just switch off and have the real debates around the mess table .I like lots of RAWK but current affairs is  my pethate

There's an Internet warrior in all of us when we get our back up.

Some are into oneupmanship, some genuinely offended by what is often an unfortunate word or two.

Wiser heads usually prevail and as much as we might knock some of our less diplomatic posters, there's a large amount of respect among our support that doesn't exist anywhere else, I've found.

That generation gap is widening though.

And where's Vic when we need to show these young punks where they came from?

Just back from a week in Lake Garda, absolutely stunning place with many beautiful small towns to visit. Took a trip into the Dolomites and that coach ride was a bit scary at times but once there (at 10,000 feet) the scenery was stunning. Think I've fallen in love with Italy.

It's always been our favourite place, the light reflecting off the lakes just gives everything a magical glow.

We have been and stayed on places on all the lakes over the last 35 years but Torri del Benaco on Garda is one of our favourite places.

I particularly liked Riva del Garda, Limone and Malcesine, but as I said, there are so many beautiful little towns where you can easily pass a couple of hours drinking a coffee or a beer admiring and soaking up the magnificent lake and its amazing scenery.

Was my first visit to Italy a few weeks ago as my girlfriend took me to Florence for my birthday - absolutely stunning city, perfect for just wandering around looking at spectacular buildings.

Hiya. I only came on to answer messages. And after reading a few, I ended up starting a thread on Universal Credit in the politics wing. So, I thought I'd say hello while I was here.

In truth, I haven't been on because I'm sick and tired of spouting off and doing nothing but make a fool of myself. I've done the book on Clinton. It's been laying there for months. I can't/won't put it out, yet.

The inquiry is started. And we all seen what happened with Bettison. He got off the hook, as his case was prejudiced by public exposure. And I'm not pretentious enough, to think I can affect this inquiry. But imagine, being blamed for it being shut down after people have fought for over 30 years to be heard.

Fuck that. I'd rather look like a big mouthed divvy, than take that risk. I've got the proof of all I'm accusing. But people's lives are far more important than my drivel. So, that's that. I'll just have to look like a dickhead and hope I'm still round to have my say, when all this is done.

The so-called inquiry will take two years, at the very least. The guilty will never be named. Most of them will be dead by the time this is done.

If nothing else, it's made me more determined than ever to survive the fuckers and have my say on what they've done. And what they've done is a crime.

There should be no inquiry. There's more than enough evidence to put the guilty on trial. And I've no doubt, a jury of 12 ordinary people would convict the guilty, regardless of their wealth and power.

Oh well, it looks like the people Sir Phillip Greed will lose his knighthood. Maybe, the noble lords will give it to the people he ripped off and abused. So they can share a few minutes nobility and chivalry amongst them.

What the fuck are we living in. Medieval knighthoods for the rich, medieval justice for the skint masses. And Mr. Pastry is making new nuclear bombs and threats of using them.

Thanks. But I'm honestly alright. I've got a few problems, but who hasn't nowadays. The only thing doing my head in is, I've finally got the ammo to sling and I can't aim at anyone, yet. But I will. And you're right Bobby, there's better things to concetrate on.

Thank fuck the footy's going well. I'm loving that. And I'll just enjoy what I can, until I can punch back. And if it looks like I won't be round to do that, I'll harrish yous lot to spread my book about for me. Fuck em. I've had four years of this. There's no point in wallowing in it. But I'll punch back soon as I can.

Check this fella out.... Rolf Kaestel. He's knocking on 70. He's spent half his life in prison. Half of that was in savagery. The other half was in solitary. He robbed two hundred and odd dollars with a water pistol. Then he blew the whistle on what he seen in jail, and the poor c*nt has never been heard of since.

The whole thing is rotten. And it's all been hidden. But five minutes digging shows exactly what happened and who should be in prison. But I'm not wallowing in it for another two years.

I've got tickets to Richard Thompson and John Cooper Clarke in Salisbury. I just hope nobody poisons us, again. I get told, I'm mad. The whole fucking thing's mental. I prefer wallowing in better times. Remember this....

It's on every night now. The 60's and 70's, the good old days, I used to watch it in my mates cos we never had a telly. Drop me and Jacob Rees Mogg in a desert or a ghetto without a carrot. I'll come out with Jacob's clobber and sell it on Going for a Song. Fuck em. I'll see them all out and fight them on the way back.

Talking Pictures and some aul woman doing Tai Chi was all that got me through last winter. I'm dreading this one. And I hate being dramatic, but I thought it was all over last year.

A bad time, cut short... when I didn't drop dead, I thought, I'd best try and get well. So, I got a wire from poundland, and hooked the telly up to the computer. And I started copying some aul Chinese woman on youtube.

All that just to give a tip.... get onto that Tai Chi. I swear, copying that old lady, and watching Will Hay, are about the only things that kept me here.

When I visited China last year I saw an old guy in the garden every morning doing his Tai Chi. He even had a sabre of some sort for some of the moves.

Now if you or I did that here we`d either get called a ponce or the police would arrive and ask us about our sword, but he looked the business and it was obviously doing him good. There were also groups of older ladies who congregated in the parks and street corners around dusk and did their routines to dance music.

Well, all I can say is, I'll just have to keep schtum as every time I say I'll do something, something else stops me. But I've got this fight to be getting on with. And that's enough to deal with, for now. But it's one of them things, that we all think can never happen to us, until it does.

Remember years back, I was asking all you old bastards about Sciatica? Harry Trow was riddled with it, and I ended up just taking the piss out of him. Little did I know, that was the first warning sign. But do you know, Harry's on telly now?

I haven't spoken to him in ages. But  I seen a picture of him, all done up, like Charles Dicken's dad, on some film set. I'll have to see if I can get on one of them Scrounger Safari shows.

I'm honestly okay. And I'll be alright whatever happens. I'm just tired of saying what I'm going to do, and doing nothing. It's a horrible situation. And I wouldn't have believed any of it, if it hadn't happened to me. And I have no intention of giving in, but there's no point in wallowing in it until I can do something about it.

I don't know, if anybody remembers that Mr. Ethical fella that I met? He exposed a billion pound fraud by HSBC. He got proved right by all the authorities, legal and financial. Rhona Fairhead set out to destroy him for it. And, with my own eyes, I seen her tormenting and threatening him on Twitter.

I kid not, as I watched, she said, she'd take his house and sickness benefits. She'd already had his mortgage. Only his supporters on Twitter saved him from the streets.

It had been going on for ages. When I seen it, Fairhead was holding the BBC purse strings at the BBC. She's now in The Lords, meaning she's got a hand in writing this country's laws. She should have been in prison, when she had that fella made destitute, for exposing her crimes.

HSBC got collared helping rich tax dodgers, just around the David Cameron pushed Fairhead into the Lords. And that was just before he fucked off to Panama to count his tax dodging. But at that time, Cameron should have been in jail for secretly getting HSBC off the hook in America, where they were facing charges of drug money laundering and funding terrorism.

Mr. Ethical exposed the theft of over a billion quid, by HSBC from the public, over 12 years ago. He used to be high flying financial lawyer. They took everything from him, including his mind. He admits, it sent him crazy. But he's still fighting the same fight. Fuck that. But I take my hat off to him...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9tauLV_MgA

I just found that. I haven't even watched that clip, myself. There was a longer one. It seems to have disappeared. And this one comes from RT. So, that's came as a bit of a shock to me, as the Ethical fella can't stand RT.

They've promised to have him on there loads of times. But he hates Max Keiser. Twice, he was in the green room, all made up to go on that show, and they stopped without filming and gave him no real reason.

Anyway, we all know, the whole shebang is bent. Fuck em. I'll be with this fella tomorrow night...

Just to say... if you like a tune and a show, and Thomo is coming anywhere near you, go.

I've honestly never seen the man on better form. How the fuck his fingers move up and down them frets, with that power, is beyond me. And his voice was strong and good, as ever. And I don't know how he does it, but every album he brings out is as good, if not better, than everything else he's done.

Hopefully, he'll be going for many more years. And I hope I catch him a few more tiimes, but he's knocking 70, now.

He played for over two hours.  He laughed and joked through out. And it's not one bit like, him. But he even had a bit of a dance about. And if that miserable aul bastard can do that, I can last two years.

Right then, I'm off. Keep well, see yers soon.

Great to see Leo still fighting the good fight, horrible that he has to wait so long to get any kind of justice.

John, Ray would indeed have loved how his much beloved Liverpool have grown into the team under JK that they always had under Shanks.
As you know, I'm a United fan for all of my 72 years but I'd swap that miserable get JM for a spell of Jurgen ,

So, old-timers, everyone looking forward (sic) to going back to the "good old days" when the Old Etonians get their Hard Brexit?

What are you looking forward to most, apart from rickets and "getting your country back"?   ::)

They accuse Labour of wanting us to go back to the 1970s, whilst the likes of Mogg want to go back to the 1870s.

We will rise again and destroy these parasitic bastards. The would-be stealers of our children's  - and their children's !- futures cannot be allowed to succeed in repressing the aspirations and hopes of the mass of the British people.
They stand - have ALWAYS stood - for division and privilege whilst we stand for unity and communities of equals. I'll leave you with this simple arithmetical thought. They are but relatively few whilst we are many millions strong. They cannot possibly stand against a united and an angry people. Get these vampires gone whilst there's still blood and breath left in us. Let's once and for all smash them and never ever allow them to con us again.

Sadly John the problem, as I see it, peeking from abroad, is that communities in the UK democracy are far from united.

And given the forum that we're posting on, Football has been a dividing force rather than the great unifying one it could be, for many years now.

Sadly, I believe you are correct. I know it's an age-old tactic, but divide and rule was employed extremely well by Thatcher and has been pushed hard by every Tory government since. The Tory years also encouraged personal greed, everyone for themselves, lack of empathy and a real I'm alright, Jack, mentality. Basically those who really should be standing together are all now fragmented and fighting amongst themselves instead of against this dreadful, social Darwinist government. These days we have people pissing on the homeless on our streets. There is very little left in regards to a sense of community any more.

This fragmentation and division of the masses has been very carefully cultivated by the right wing over the years and is constantly pushed in the right wing media. They have us all fighting amongst ourselves instead of uniting to fight them. They want us at odds with each other because it suits them that way. We've all been conned, and until we all wake up, we will continue to be so.

There are a lot more of us than there are of them, but whilst we are all busy fighting against each other instead of them, nothing will change.

This song from the mid 80s by The The / Matt Johnson is always my first thought when I think of Tory / Right Wing Britain.
It was written back then in protest at Thatcher, the Tories, the state of our country and the increasing Americanisation of the UK. Since then, nothing has changed apart from it's all got a lot worse...

Yep, I saw The The live in Liverpool back in the day. The Soul Mining, Infected, Mind Bomb and Dusk albums I still play regularly.
A fantastic writer, both musically and lyrically.

Good to see you back Geoff.

I assume Valli did a lot of Four Seasons and has his voice held out? I had Working my Way back to you and Opus 17 on the Phillips label in the 60s and they regularly feature on my playlists.
