|Yellow vest protests|
at 17:54 8 Dec 2018
and these protests have spread to Amsterdam and Brussels. People are unhappy about the high cost of living. Of course the politicians have very nice pay packets and expense accounts, the EU crowd have very generous terms that make Westminsters greedy so snd so's look poor.
Is this just a large bunch of far right nut jobs or will these protests grow and spread. Is this a national or supranational problem?

So say the official inquiry,
In which case it surely has to be corruption and the WG should be asking the police to investigate.
There's a quite obvious question, did the person incharge of NRW have any relationship with anybody at BSW and did they get any financial reward for awarding the contracts?
The police should be looking at bank accounts. There again, for 3 years the NRW accounts were wrong and the Welsh government did nothing, incompetence?

I've been told it's in Tesco Llansamlet from 2pm today so the area is probably best avoided, unless you want to see it. Personally I'll take the long way around it.
|Filming the police|
at 18:48 20 Nov 2018
It's a sad indictment of society that people use their mobile phones to film attacks and the aftermath of terrorism, not to be used as evidence but for fun, to take selfies or, as in the latest attack to post on facebook when two police officers were being beaten up.
Is it time for a new law, filming the police (or anyone) when they're being attacked and posting it online should be a crime. Any filming should be done only to provide evidence in the court cases.

I heard on the radio today that the MacMillan cancer charity has had an increase in requests for help from cancer patients who are coming under pressure for taking time off work, seriously, wtf?
Then later I found out that my nieghbours son had lost his job after taking time off to go to hospital to see his mother. She was just about to have life saving heart surgery, she was in an induced coma for a week. He worked for an agency, it was only a temp job until Christmas anyway but still, where is the compassion?
What kind of heatless b'stards can treat people like this?

Watching breakfast news and they're highlighting where Trump has a lot of support, Evangelical Christians, that explains a lot.
Some of the people they interviewed seemed to be barking. The Priest said his strong faith in Jesus was reflected in his conservative views, do what now? Jesus was the biggest Liberal the planet has ever seen. If you accept he existed and was the son of God, not the biggest con artist in history. Jesus certainly wouldn't have accepted having that wall built, he'd be there knocking it down.
The USA is strongly religious still yet the religious views are warped from what I've understood them to be. Jesus never advocated the kind of behaviour Trump supporters indulge in, he wouldn't behave like the Trump haters either.
The USA is one crazy mixed up place. The good Samaritan uses bullets and bombs to help, they don't turn the other cheek, money lending is good and the 5000 (Latin American immigrants) will not cross the border, will go hungry and Trump will not turn the other cheek either.

Neil Lennon, last night he was goading Hearts fans after a goal was disallowed then he copped a coin square in the face.
He reckons it was just banter but is it ok for any manager to goad the oppo fans? It's frowned on when players do it these days so what example is a manager setting?
He probably got the poor innocent coin thrower into trouble!!

I was watching countryfile this morning and the story about wildcats is truly shocking. They are felling thousands of acres of wildcat habitat to make way for wind farms. So to save our planet we are destroying the environment, it just doesn't make sense.
The wildcats are the MOST endangered cats in the world, 50 times rarer than tigers, rarer than Pandas, Polar bears are endangered and there's 20,000 of them but there are less than 300 wildcats left.

With Spencer Kelly.
Watched this just now and the japanese are at it again, some great science and some weird science too..
Hyabusa 2 is a satellite that is exploring an asteroid looking for signs of life and evidence of where life began. Did it begin on Earth or elsewhere in the universe, that's a mighty big search!
Then there's more down to earth stuff, like dashcams that can share information so when you are overtaking, you can see through the car in fronts camera and be sure nothing is coming the other way. I'm not sure about that, there's enough distractions already without confusing our brains even more.
Then there's fake "real daylight" when an indoor window gives off artificial sunlight in a natural way and glasses with liquid LED crystals that, at the click of a small button, become magnified so you can read small print easily. Tap the button again to turn off.

It's a nightmare for new car owners, will your car be there when you come back? Will it be in one piece?
I have to ask though, is there a scandal brewing here. We've already seen the emissions scandal and now cars are so easy to steal or to rob from. Dealers are doing a lot more repairing and replacing and insurance claims are rising so people are paying excess fees and their premiums are rising.
Is the car industry profiting from this security flaw?
|42 minutes in play|
at 11:19 2 Oct 2018
I was listening to talksport in the car this morning and that 42 minutes was a new Premier league record low for the ball being in play, yes it was Cardiff v Burnley.
Apparently Morrisons throw ins used up 8 minutes by themselves. Put that with time wasting ar free kicks, when the keeper has the ball etc and over half the game was wasted time.
I can't remember his name but an ex referee reckons we need an independent time keeper so that all wasted time is added on. He also asked, when was the last time a keeper was punished for holding the ball more than 6 seconds when they're all at it?
He's got a point surely. He also said nfans were being shortchanged and we are, aren't we? We pay to watch a full match not anywhere from 42-90 minutes.
So do the rules need changing, do referees need to have time keeping taken off them AND be told to enforce the rules more often, more consistently?
I say yes.

It's only 8 minutes in and already I'm disgusted and ashamed of what we are doing to our planet, to the wildlife.
