Bankers A Fairy Tale
The Banks have been screwing us…. Noooooo!!!!!
Time for a fairy tale to take our mind off things..

Somewhere within an ivory tower made of gold someone decided that we should all pay a little more for our mortgage, all went well for them, until one day a dragon “who just could not keep it’s fucking mouth shut” starting breathing fire at the tower.

The End!!!

Or is it! Hey what about the peasants you cry how did they fare. Have you noticed in fairy tales no one asks about the little guys ploughing the fields or begging on the streets.

Hey I tell you what let’s try writing the fairy tale again, let’s make it a little post-modern.

Once upon a time a King lived in a Castle made of gold. He had a huge amount of money locked in his castle but he fancied some more. So he thought rightyho “so I am stealth taxing the poor, but it is just not bringing in enough money”, someone said (or perhaps a voice in his head said) let us lie to the little guy and tell him that he must pay us some more money. So that is what he did. Everything was good, but greed begets greed, so he got some of his mates to also follow this idea and the next thing you know they were all raking in huge cash amounts. The lords and ladies who helped finance the King’s tower were really happy as they got plenty of kick back, and after all the only person getting hurt were the little guy, and who gives a fuck about them, not even you my fairy story reading friend (see above).
Suddenly a big bad Dragon starting saying “it is all a lie, they are cheating you”, not a lot of people noticed or cared. The King though got greedier and greedier and told us he had no money and the little guy had to help him out, and they did. They also got their squire to tell the little guy that we were all in this crisis together. But you see we were not it was just a fucking fairy story to make us feel loved, because at the same time they were still charging us more and more. The big bad dragon got louder and louder “THEY ARE CHEATING US!!!” It roared. Then one day the King could not stand the peasants grumbling anymore. He one day looked in the mirror and saw a monster staring back at him. So he jumped from his castle walls, but only before threatening to stab all his friends in the back on the way out. He also made sure he had the assurance that a large cash bed would be built to cushion his fall.

The end or perhaps the beginning, how would I know after all I am just a little guy.

GREED:
What do we do to fix an endemic culture of greed. The banks are screwing us they gamble with our cash like a drunk idiot in a casino. When it goes wrong we have to bail them out. Why is it this way, because every other part of it is rotten. The politicians are bought through party donations made by the big companies and banks. The government borrows money from other banks and organisations at a rate assigned to them by financial organisations, dare to fuck about and the cost of of government borrowing will go up. The Newspapers the former champions that we gave prizes to and made films and books of thier deeds, now tell us who to vote for and make and break the great, good, shylocks, and shite-houses at will. I hope the latest banking scandal will be the proverbial straw and camel but I really doubt it. The system is too rotten and has been for far too long. The Banks are not alone in this the energy companies are so greedy that they raise prices when there is no reason to apart from greed, and when prices fall that they pay they take 6 months to let what we pay fall back down.
What do we do where can we go.. We need to start with government we need to remove financial backing of parties by donations, this is the first step, we need to have no shadow voting groups like the unions. We need to remove the media from manipulation of politicians. We need to break the mighty press barons monopolies, change the law, your company (or group of companies) can only own one media outlet (one newspaper or TV or Radio company). This is just the start from there we need strong brave hero politicians, where do we get them from, after all this is not a fairy tale.

Iran and Nuclear Weapons

Something I bet you did not know: In Iran it is punishable by death to own, use or threaten to use Nuclear Weapons. You will not know this due to the volume of nonsense you see in the press and on TV every day. The Supreme leader of the country Ayatollah Ali Khamenei issued a Fatwa on this in 2005 and has re-iterated this on many occasions since.

One for Ethan
No social comment on this one. Simply, this is a photo taken by my 3 year old son. Every time he sees me taking pictures of his toys, he asks can he help. Yesterday he received some new Playmobil and took this picture to give to me.
I love you!

Time to go Sepp.
Monsieur Blatter once again carries on his one man campaign to bring the game of football into disrepute. Not content to sponge off as much profit as this greedy little golem can. He also has to regale us with his odious words of wisdom.
Like an unlovable Berlisconi he just can’t keep his mouth shut.
On Racism
"it’s just a game”.

Asked whether he felt there is still racism on the pitch: “I would deny it. There is no racism. “


“Maybe one of the players has a word or a gesture which is not the correct one, but the one who is effected by that, he should say that ‘this is a game’.
On Women’s Football
"Let the women play in more feminine clothes like they do in volleyball. Female players are pretty, if you excuse me for saying so, and they already have some different rules to men – such as playing with a lighter ball. That decision was taken to create a more female aesthetic, so why not do it in fashion?"
Asked about whether John Terry should be stripped of the England captaincy over allegations of an affair with a former team-mate’s former girlfriend. “Listen, this is a special approach in the Anglo-Saxon countries,”
 ”If this had happened in, let’s say, Latin countries then I think he would have been applauded.”
On Homosexuality
Asked about the concerns for gay fans travelling to Qatar a country where homosexuality is illegal. He advised fans to:
"refrain from any sexual activities during the tournament."
In his defence though previously he had given sound advice to gay footballers that were scared to come out in the macho world of competitive sport.
"There are gay footballers, but they don’t declare it because it will not be accepted in these macho organisations. But look at women’s football – homosexuality is more popular there!"
Sepp please go, or please someone remove him he has brought the whole game into disrepute.

Doctor found guilty in Michael Jackson case..
Michael Jackson died on 25 June 2009 from an overdose of the powerful anaesthetic propofol.
Like his life the events of Jackson’s death have turned into a bizzarre story.
Anywhere else in the world apart from California, this case would not have happened. Jackson after all was as this case clearly shows addicted to pain killing drugs, and had threatened the doctor that he would get the drugs whether he helped or not, not sure how Michael can end up being a poor helpless victim in all of this.
But hey I ain’t no lawyer..
