Is this the next big thing?
There is very little cross generational socialising any more. We have elderly people suffering isolarion and lonliness and young people needing empathy lessons.
There are places, though they are fast dying out, where a diverse range of people of a wide age range used to gather and socilaise happily for hours....local pubs.
You don't get many 60 plus people down Wind Street of a weekend.
Churches, that's another place though to be honest you'll not find me in a Church, I won't even go to a Church funeral anymore.
What is the answer? If we are to unite the country this is yet another issue to be solved.
|Spurs v Chelsea|
at 22:47 22 Dec 2019
How could Taylor not point straight to the spot when Gazzaniga so obviously took out the Chelsea player and should it have been red?
Should Spurs have to play behind closed doors for the racist chanting and abuse as well as the missiles being thrown?
|The dirty war on the NHS|
at 11:40 22 Dec 2019
A film by John Pilger. It's shocking, even when you already knew much of it was happening. It also provides more reasons for getting Tony Blair into a court to face questions. He, along with Alan Milburn lied to the British people. He went about increasing privatisation in the NHS by stealth, he was Thatchers love child in that respect.
The PFI scandal, the NHS borrowed roughly 11 billion but will end up paying back around 80 billion over 30-40 years. That is where much of the money goes.
Watch it and be angry at all of our politicians (including Corbyn for making Labour unelectable)
|Abolish the Lords!|
at 14:44 16 Dec 2019
As if we needed any more reasons to get rid of the unelected political placing shenanigans that is the House of Lords, news today that Ed Davey has noinated Jo Swinson for a peerage and he wants her back in Parliament as soon as possible.
So this utter failure who got a good kicking at the ballot box, who stood on a 'b0ll0cks to brexit' manifesto could get a peerage.
What has she done to deserve this elevation? Davey went on to say the Libdems will still fight brexit at every opportunity.

I read today that the new ECB boss LaGarde is planning fresh economic stimulus on top of the measures Draghi took. She's planning on pumping 20 billion a month into the economy.The I saw this link underneath,
It says that the ECB has put 2.6 TRILLION in QE into the EU economy. Now that's a massive, massive amount and they plan on putting even more in so where has the money gone? It comes to around 5000 euros for every man, woman and child in Europe.
It also said the plan was to try and stimulate inflation to keep it as close to 2% as they could.
If they want to spread some money around I'll have a couple of trillion!!
|EU tax avoidance directive|
at 20:26 29 Nov 2019
Now this would be good but apparently it's been voted down. 12 member states have voted against it. Amongst them Ireland where apparently 10 corporations pay such a large amount of tax that if the avoidance were exposed and stopped the Irish tax and spending watchdog fear it could collapse the economy.
I've seen the rumours that the tories want to turn us into a low tax regime and how bad people that would be yet in other EU states they think it's great.

Having recently moved from Llansamlet to Skewen I have found that NPT are much better for recycling than Swansea. Black bags are still taken once a fortnight but most of the rest is taken every week and they take more of the things we'd black bag in Swansea.
So why can't all councils operate the same system? If NPT can recycle all the extra stuff (including batteries and milk/food cartons) why can't every council?
Shouldn't there be a national standard for recycling so the whole country can do more of it? The planet could do with the help!

Does anybody suffer from them or are you all glad to be home? I haven't had them before but this year I just want to go back!
|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?
