Saturday out in the Cotswolds…..
Saturday, 20th October 2018

This mornings fog turned into a lovely day. We went over to Stroud to the market and then up the Slad Valley to the Cotswolds.

Nice day !

Lying Saudis……now they admit Jamel Khashoggi died inside the consulate !!!

…..oh and he was involved in a “fist fight” with a group of fit young men, some friends with the Prince…..one a doctor who came through Customs with a bone saw!!

This kind of behaviour is normal in some 3rd world countries like Saudi Arabia but those of us who do not live under this brutal regime, where women are stoned to death and executions carried out in the town square as entertainment on Friday mornings, are not stupid. Tragedy for Jamel Khashoggi and his family but the rest of us are laughing at the Saudi government who are dreaming up new ways to try to wriggle out of the deceit and shame they are currently carrying and brought on their people.

Bring on the tapes!

Thumb nail clap…..no murders in New York last weekend…..!

New York is celebrating the first weekend in decades in which no one was murdered or shot in the city.

For three days, from Friday to Sunday, New Yorkers generated no new business for NYPD homicide squads.” [Source: The Times]

Miss Gregory, head teacher at my elementary school, allowed us to give ourselves a “thumb nail clap” if there had been no trouble o the school busses that week. She would not allow full on clapping because she expected kids to behave on the bus.

Nevertheless she allowed a modest acknowledgement of good behaviour and we should give the same to New York City who managed to stay clear of murders last weekend – from Thursday to Sunday!! And that really is a major achievement for a once notoriously violent city.

It may seem cynical to applaud a turn in such a potentially tragic culture but, on the contrary….what is NYC doing that the rest of the country is not?

Well done New York…..

Saudi: “Awwww shucks we only went and killed him by accident…..”

Could it really be the Saudis just wanted to give Jamal Khashoggi a bit of a pummelling – a bit like a pillow fight but then, totally by accident, they murdered and dismembered his body??

Damn! Trust them Saudi secret police to take things a teeny weeny bit too far! Dishing out pain and suffering is about the only thing they get excited about over there…..

The lying sods!

Bugger the “backstop”…..tell the EU that unless they get real, “We’re gonna build a wall” from Warrenpoint to Donegal…..!

The Irish Border – we have compromised enough! It’s time we took the initiative!

One idea is to build the wall from truck pallets – there’s a thought?

You just can’t get away with a word like “nice” to describe your filled bread rolls!! I mean are they big? Enormous? Does size matter? Tasty? Do you also do baguettes and sausage rolls?
