no appointment necessary!
given the interconnectedness of the world I do wonder about the ability of one country to determine their own economic fate. I may have to do a little background reading.
In other news, I've been incredibly hay-fevery over the last few days. I wonder whether it's related to central heating systems kicking in and stirring up 'stuff'.
I often wonder how much difference politicians actually make to our lives, youve only got to look at Labour and the Cons, theyre claiming vastly different economic policies, faster and deeper cuts vs to far to fast etc. Generally speaking though there is no massive difference between the two which I can see impact on my daily life.The cuts we've seen arent really deep, theyre pretty much scratching the surface, yes some services have been cut, a few thousand less police, lots of non jobs in government cut but how much difference does it make to the man on the street.Yes if you were one of those who lost their jobs its obviously going to impact you but that no different to industry cutting back in hard times.
i think it affects the poorer areas more................all the main indusrty shut in this area..........so you have some very low paid odd factory fwork or shop work.or you get council and local government work........and hospital jobs..............
these are the better paid jobs and they enable the shops and services to keep going and other businesses to expand...........take those jobs away and it has a bigger impact than the bra factory shutting ........
I think if you look on a spectrum of left wing and right wing, Barley, our political parties have gradually started moving closer and closer together. Britain has never been one for extremes, we've never gone anywhere near communism or fascism for sure, but I think that current politics are closer together than they ever were. That doesn't necessarily mean they are meeting in the middle either.
the only thing i have to say is i mixed in some english mustard with my baked beans for lunch today, and it was lush!
That's a timely reminder TMW- it's been an age since I cooked Boston beans I may add that to my list of Xmas things to cook.
TMW..thats sounds gorgeous........................
another coat of paint on the hall, stairs, landing, stairs and landing...............hopefully the last.will wait until it dries to decide
I am very glad Mr President is back in. Not least 'cos one of my close pals works for him & "First Lady Michelle" as she is known...and I have promised that I will finally get over to the States and get a personalised tour of the White House Including bits we aren't allowed in normally. Yes, I am shallow (but there are other reasons I am glad too).
wretched painting seren, it was too damp here to paint my cast iron railings again, i'm not sure when i can do them now as i'm off to N Wales tomorrow, and not back till Sunday afternoon (going via Bristol for a night out on Saturday)
i put up some more shelves in the airing cupboard which was a pain as the hot water cylinder was in the way. eventually did it, but not my best work
Bald tyres!!! Thats pretty poor on a company car I have done allsorts but pleased to report it stayed dry whilst I went out with my boyThe plumber has been fettling around in the loft and I have hooveredObama seems a lot more personable to me than Romney, thats what I shall base my virtual voting on for now
Ewww ... I would quite like to go to bed now .. alas and alack I have to go to work instead
i want to go to bed but have started stripping all the layers of paint off the fireplace...i wish i had just spray painted it brown............i feel this is not going to end well........and the fumes are going to send me over the edge no doubt
Seren, do you ever sit down and do nothing .... ever??
i'm tooo knackered to shag anything............i'm asleep when my oh comes to bed and asleep whr#en he gets up.................i am awake for an hour or two in the middle of the night but hes always asleep then................
reminds me i have the MOT next week and the car will need new at least new tyres
hmm, i am off to Wales tomorrow as it happens
