Double Dip Recession

If you wicki Double Dip it tells you about a Socially taboo subject of taking a bite of ones crisp and then dipping it for a second time into the dip. Whilst this may be socially reprehensible what I find as disgusting is we have a government hell bent on reforms and as I understand it we are less than one third through yet and they are doing zilch to enliven the economy. I mentioned yesterday the billions due to go to the Euro support fund, where it will sit doing sod all when it would be better placed here in the UK rebuilding the mess we are now in. I am at a loss what to say which is an unusual situation. We have Kids leaving school ill equipped for what the world is going to throw at them and this lot of clowns in charge unable to stop UK. PLC going broke. This psychologically will make every business in the country tighten its belt. Gloom breeds gloom and I always try and see the glass as half full but todays figures make even me think my glass is nearly empty.

How Many Millionaires in Parliament

I just did a quick google of the question and it seems a fair few. The Lower chamber wants reforms of the Lords (now I would expect a few Millionaires to be Lords) But simple parliamentarians you know the sort I mean Salt of the Earth Dyed-in-the-Wool politicals of any party. The ones who by hard honest work got themselves into Parliament. Builders chippies sparks or plasterers (god knoows we need a few cracks plastering over) Shopkeepers (maggie lived over the family shop). ???????????? What I am saying is are all the Government on any side of the political divide the type of bloke who you would meet in the boozer after a hard days graft? I personally dont think so. Public school educations and University degrees in politics seems to be the order of the day. They all have lost the common touch, they have no idea what its like to work forty hours at minimum wage and feed the kids cloth them and pay the bills. They are just as likely to spend the common mans wage on a meal or a round of drinks. I heard on the Radio last week afternoon Tea at the Ritz is eighty odd quid and they have a waiting list. You aint going to be having tea at the ritz if you are on a minimum wage.
So what am I getting at? It is this the vast majority of us barely get by and are overseen by people who having never done what millions of mums up and down the country call a proper job are making the decisions for those who pay taxes without thinking of how to avoid paying or flip their homes or claim for duck houses on expenses.

Footnote, I just typed proper job in google and this article in the Telegraph came up where Acting is not regarded as a proper job acorong to Passport contol, I think some one needs to tell Dave and Co they need to get a proper job rather than acting like they know what they are doing running the country. picture from the telegraph article.

Lords Reform

Well they want to get rid of the unelected Lords but what about all of the unelected reformers we have to put up with from the EU? I aim to raise questions here and if you like my thoughts leave a comment or two?
