“It’s a crisis”, “It’s another crisis”, “the Migrant Crisis”, “the cost of living crisis that’s affecting families”, “we’re in the middle of an energy crisis”, “the climate crisis must be adressed by the UK” …. etc … etc

(Consider yourself very fortunate I could be bothered to turn this lump of text into a bulleted list for readability. See Nomination Rule #4. Grrr – NA)

I remember when news readers read facts out, impartially, in-passionately, calmly, whether good news or bad. Today, it’s all panic, scare mongoring, too busy calling for heads to roll or pushing agendas.

I went to sleep before the pandemic – woke up and found I was back in the 1970’s. I want a refund. I want rationality back. I want optimism back. I want my country back …

  1. Couldn’t agree more Lord of The Rings. Amidst the perma-doom that the media shovel out, there is one thing that is really bothering me, that is the shit going down in Holland regarding farming and forced buy outs of faming land. This is not to be sniffed at, mark my words.

    • Morning Mrs C. This closing down of farming in the Netherlands I only heard about on ISAC the other day but the more I think about it, the crazier it seems. I understand the Dutch are the second largest food exporter in the world, a fact remarkable in itself for such a small country and so unsurprisingly is a hugely important proportion of the Dutch economy. This is being organised by the Dutch “Nitrogen Minister” (I didn’t make that up) and backed by the EU. Obviously when Dutch food exports decline the slack will be taken up by other countries many of whom will not givea toss about emissions or animal welfare. One excuse given is the need to free land for infrastructure and housing for the rapidly increasing population. Guess where they’re coming from.

      Sounds almost as stupid as the plan by the British to close down their economy for the benefit of the Chinese.

  2. I think I prefer the old Project Fear. Remember the one from the 70’s and 80’s where we lived in fear of nuclear devastation, and that extremely helpful pamphlet from the Govt on how to survive by building a bomb shelter in your home in 4 mins? In basic training we were drilled in how to identify the enemy ie they will come from the North, carrying a AK-47, wearing a furry hat with a red star, stink of Vodka and cabbage and sound Russian. Oh, and they would have 100,000 tanks with them. But fear not, as we had spent many happy hours shooting at targets that resembled them so we would be fine. They were no match for our SLR, GPMG and Chieftain tanks! Luxury!

  3. Most newspapers read like comics nowadays a few sensationalist headlines..crapness of politicians..reality or soap stars doing a jig for charity..plus most of the papers are a pound or over to purchase unless you read online nah I’d rather get my fully honest non biased woke free news from the ranting piss head down the pub at least you don’t have to pay for the privilege.
