Daily Mail – Monday July 18th, 2022

By Baldmichael Theresoluteprotector’sson

25th July 2022


I haven’t done a post on the Daily Mail yet, so here is one. It may only interest those in the UK, but I dare say others might be informed or amused or both by my take on matters.

I got hold of a paper copy. The tory leadership contest is its main focus. It is rather boring to be honest. The usual political crap-trap…or is it clap-trap…anyway the usual ‘I will do this’, ‘You mucked this up’, etc. etc.

So as I reflected and tried to analyse this, I felt it was too much hard work and anyway things are moving on. I want to do an analysis of the remaining candidates who are now Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss. I may cover others too.

Let’s look at the other items, or at least some of them. I think I am being more serious than usual although I do have some humour. My apologies for that if you need them, but I am getting rather annoyed with the nonsense now and things need to change.


As we face record 39c heat will millions just bunk off?

Probably.

Did they? I don’t know, don’t ask me. It was very hot, too hot and rather humid for my liking. Friends of ours said that the workmen were working on the road works near them though.

However, as it usual takes 3 or 4 to supervise one man, I don’t suppose they exerted themselves too much.

But our builder carried on putting in our new bath and starting the tiling, so well done him.

Summer of 99’s? Not if councils have a say.

This is a reference to the Summer of ‘69’ by Bryan Adams I presume. Apparently, 69 might be the year 1969 when he brought his first real 6 string guitar. I might also be something else. I don’t get out much.

Anyway, it seems that that Mr Whippy vans might be an endangered species if councils have their way. They don’t like the diesel fumes of the vans which have to run to keep the ice cream soft enough to serve.

Well, I don’t like diesels myself, Nazi smelly things, invented by Herr Diesel, a German.

As to the ice cream this seems to be the ingredients.

What are the ingredients of soft serve ice cream?

Milk, Sugar, Cream, Nonfat Milk Solids, Corn Syrup Solids, Mono- and Diglycerides, Guar Gum, Dextrose, Sodium Citrate, Artificial Vanilla Flavor, Sodium Phosphate, Carrageenan, Disodium Phosphate, Cellulose Gum, Vitamin A Palmitate.

From

Personally I don’t much like the sound of some of that. This is Mr Whippy website.

Products

Mr. Whippy (or Mister Whippy) is a brand of soft-mix ice cream produced by Wall’s, a subsidiary of Unilever

Unilever make soap and detergents too. Perhaps some these go in the ice cream.

From

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Whippy_(United_Kingdom)

This is another Mr Whippe, note spelling. Are they related?

You can make your own Mr Whippy style ice cream yourself. This link tells you how.

https://www.delish.com/uk/food-news/a36798280/mr-whippy-ice-cream-homemade/

And this tells you about the contents of industrial ice cream.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-393432/The-chilling-truth-ice-cream.html

It says Suddenly, the rousing jangle of the ice cream man’s van doesn’t seem quite as appealing.

I quite agree. What will it do to your insides I wonder?

Lords: TV licence fee is ‘regressive’ and it should be reformed

To be honest the arguments about the BBC are well worn. It is not what it used to be, although it seems it has always been a propaganda machine for governments anyway.

But now it just isn’t well balanced on the whole. As I have said before, the TV side as far as I can judge is poor, news is biased to the left-wing and not neutral, they like the sensationalist items more than they should.

They have also supported the vaccinations which is despicable. Those culpable for this crime should be hung, drawn and quartered.

That is hung out to dry, their images sketched by the police artists and quartered at their own expense (not the public’s) in the deepest dungeon of the Tower of London.

After a fair trial of course.

I still say the radio side is pretty good, although I haven’t listened to the music side for some time.

Priti to target well-off cannabis users

Is she going to shoot them? No, just crack down on crack users and other drugs.

Pity Priti won’t be cracking down on the 50% or so of the UK population who use drugs. Mmm? Oh sorry, I was talking about prescription drugs via doctors and hospitals.

These include vaccines of course and most big pharma drugs which as I have said elsewhere are neuro-toxic. Many people become addicted and do bizarre things. Like take more big pharma drugs.

This is good for business but not for the individuals concerned. But some people love money more than people.

I see there is a public consultation. Perhaps we should write and say ‘Oi Priti, what about cracking down on the manufacturers, big pharma?’

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/illicit-drug-users-to-face-tougher-consequences

This contains the ways to respond.

https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/swift-certain-tough-new-consequences-for-drug-possession-white-paper

After 20 long years, Jen and Ben finally ‘tie the knot in Vegas’

This is not a vasectomy operation, but marriage. Like many celebrities or ‘stars’ they have been married before, in Jennifer Lopez’s case three times. Why is it that so often celebs can’t remain faithful?

Perhaps it is the temptations they face being away from one another on different film sets. Sometimes it is narcissism, the individuals being in love with themselves and the idea of marriage rather than the reality. Sometimes it is an unstable family background,

They both have had difficult early lives. This talks about Ben.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Affleck

His father was an alcoholic and his parents divorced in his teens. The link says

There is a history of addiction and mental illness in Affleck’s family. Two of his grandparents were alcoholics. His paternal grandmother, addicted to both alcohol and barbiturates, died by suicide at age 46. His paternal uncle was an addict who died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound. His aunt was a heroin addict. Affleck attended Al-Anon support meetings as a child due to his father’s addiction issues. His brother is a recovering alcoholic.

Help! What a crazy mixed up family. He is a long term Democrat supporter. He says regarding missing out on voting in the 2000 presidential campaign

“I’m going to vote twice next time, in true Boston fashion.”

That worries me. Does this go some way to explain the result in 2020 with Joe Biden and the ‘extra votes’?

And

“I like Bernie, I like Biden, I like Warren but the thing is that most of all; I don’t like Trump.”

Well, he may not like Trump, but his judgment is seriously flawed if he likes Biden and voted for him, twice or not.

Jen was born in the summer of ’69 (Daily Mail missed the Segue there). Raised in a Roman Catholic family, her parents divorced probably in Jenifer’s twenties.  She has two children by a former marriage.

Lopez is widely celebrated for her callipygian figure.

Or in the language of The Sun, she’s got a nice bum.

Lopez is considered a global icon

An icon is a mark, her image is used in marketing. Mark-eting.

Like mark of the best, the best brands. A brand is a mark.

Do you follow me; have you understood what the book of Revelation is really talking about?

Anyway, perhaps they could set up a new ice cream franchise to replace Mr Whippy. You know, Ben and Jenny’s. Perhaps they could put something decent into the ice cream.

Still, easier probably to make it yourself. At least then you will have some idea of what’s really in it. And Ben and Jenny don’t need the money anyway.

And no wonder the world has problems when people follow people who have problems and poor judgement.

Which is why the world will be judged of course.

Bison back in Britain

Not something to wash your hands in (we do wash in the UK though), but the animal that as well as roving the Great Plains of America, also roamed Europe, even the UK it seems.

They can weigh up to a ton which is a big bison. They are being released into Kent countryside to help ‘rewild’ Britain. ‘They will create an explosion of biodiversity’ according to Paul Whitfield, director-general of the Wildwood Trust.

If they fart, then at their size there certainly will be a great explosion. They are to be located near Canterbury. I hope they take precautions with the stained glass at the cathedral.

The Germans targeted the cathedrals cities in WW2 in the Baedeker Raids. This talks about Canterbury.

The same might be said in this WW3 when the church buildings have been closed by stupidity in the hierarchy, let alone those who attended services in the buildings.

But then the church was never about buildings but people the children of God. And God does not dwell in a building but in His people who are His temples.

There is this sub-heading.

The ‘Aryan’ animal loved by the Nazis

That’s a bit off putting. I gather Bison existed in Europe up until 1927 when the last wild bison was shot in 1927 on the Poland-Belarus border. Some remained in zoos and Herman Goring, no relation to Herman’s Hermits, thought the bison a noble creature and kept a small herd.

He protected them and thus the origin of ‘herd immunity’.

Bison have a tendency to exhibit homosexual behaviour. The article says ‘More than 55 per cent of mounting tend to be young males of the same gender’.

Duh, if one is talking about homosexual behaviour, then that is between same sexes. Colin Fernandez, Environment Editor wrote this. Dimbo.

Still, it explains the Nazis love of the animal.

https://www.huffpost.com/entry/the-strange-strange-story_b_136697

Mind you, put male bullocks generally into a field and mounting is evident, so not necessarily restricted to bison.

On the other hand Satan was a ‘bi-son’. You might wish to ponder that and why I say it.

Here is some more info on the Nazis and animals.

https://www.all-creatures.org/articles/ar-hitler-and.html

By the way, we now have a new ‘bison’ installed in our bathroom.

Cop26 minister may quit

Apparently Alok Sharma has said he may resign if the New P.M. is not committed to reaching ‘net zero’ on greenhouse gases.

Well, get going Alok then (I was going to say something stronger but have refrained for the sensitive readers).

He was a remainer in Brexit terms. He seems an opportunist, and if you look at his Wikipedia entry regarding Heathrow airport expansion you will see why.

He was not born in Britain. I do not trust him an inch. Perhaps this explains why.

These are some anagrams of his name.

A loam shark – ‘soiled’ his reputation then

Ah amoral ks

Ah alarms ok

Harm koalas – I can’t bear it.

ak also harm

Aka harm sol

Alas harm ok

Kamala rosh – rosh in German means ‘pink’ I gather. Kamala Harris is not pink. Still, they both have Indian heritage.

But perhaps it refers to this.

https://www.newsweek.com/rush-limbaugh-kamala-harris-radio-show-1525554

Anyway, I hope the authorities sort him out.

Kemi; We will stop policing Twitter spats and focus on what matters

Kemi Badenoch has pledged to stop police intervening in Twitter spats so they can do something useful for once like investigate burglaries and anti-social behaviour.

About time the police used common sense and stopped worrying about OAP’s not in the right one-way supermarket system or arresting people on suspicion of telling the truth about Covid 19.

You may remember the incident with a former police officer Henry Miller visited at work by an officer from Humberside Police after a member of the public apparently complained about some allegedly transphobic twits.

In one tweet Mr Miller wrote: “I was assigned mammal at birth, but my orientation is fish. Don’t mis-species me.”

From

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-lincolnshire-59727118

and

Miller also tweeted: “Transwomen are women. Anyone know where this new biological classification was first proposed and adopted?”. He later wrote that the statement was “bollocks”.

From

https://www.theguardian.com/society/2020/feb/14/transgender-tweet-police-acted-unlawfully

This shows how far the incompetent police have come. I see the Guardian article mentions this.

On the same day, Stephanie Hayden, a trans woman, has won her case against a woman who called her a “pig in a wig” and made multiple Twitter accounts to send her anti-trans messages. The court found Kate Scottow guilty of persistently making use of a public communications network to cause annoyance/inconvenience and anxiety at St Albans magistrates court.

I can understand someone being very frustrated at the stupidity of a man thinking he can be a woman. I mean, it’s hard enough being a man sometimes, let alone a woman who often claim they are hard done by, so why go there?

The police are called by some ‘pigs’. I wonder how many wear wigs? Just a thought.

An anagram of Kemi Badenoch is ‘bad Enoch Mike’. Well quite. She is currently 42 years old please note. Perhaps this is an omen. This is another anagram.

I bad heck omen.

See what I mean?

On the other hand her Wikipedia entry has some positive things from my perspective. Apparently she … used the term transsexual which is considered offensive by many trans people.

Gordon Bennet! If trans-sexual offends trans-people they should be trans-ported to a secure psychiatric hospital for the completely bonkers.

Along with the brainless maskers/visor wearers and those who still think that vaccines are a ‘Good Idea’. They should all get on famously together.

Tugendhat: I’m in race to win it

This tells you a bit about him. Now I know photos can be misleading but he looks nice, but dim to me.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Tugendhat

Please note his full name. I thought I would anagram it for fun.

I found these words

Gangster – problematic

Headstrong – possibly

Dangerous – Mmm…

Guardsmen – no, Territorial Army I gather

Madhouse – really?

Sturgeon – sounds definitely fishy

The Wikipedia entry says

Tugendhat voted against Brexit, supporting continued membership of the European Union in the 2016 referendum.[21] He voted in favour of the withdrawal agreement negotiated by Theresa May’s government on each of the three occasions it was put to a vote.

His wife is a French judge. So his Brexit stance is understandable. But I suggest he goes and lives in France.

Look him up if you want to find out more. He has no chance of being PM but I think he is a moron so I will go with my first impression.

And regarding his surname, where did that come from I wonder? And does he?

‘Tug’ the ‘end’ of his ‘hat’ that is. I did some anagrams of his surname only

Agent thud

Dante thug

Dung theta

It doesn’t look promising at all, does it? Why is he in UK government at all? Kick him out pronto and across the channel. If he swims across that will save us a lot of bother, especially if a tanker collides with him. Accidents will happen.

Bilderberg meeting

He attended a Bilderberg Meeting. I didn’t know what this is. Here’s a link. You should be aware of this, this is very important.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bilderberg_meeting

An extract

Partly because of its working methods to ensure strict privacy and secrecy,[36] the Bilderberg Group has been criticised for its lack of transparency and accountability.[37] The undisclosed nature of the proceedings has given rise to several conspiracy theories,[38][18][39] which have been popular at both extremes of the political spectrum, although there is disagreement about the exact nature of the group’s intentions. Some on the left accuse the Bilderberg group of conspiring to impose capitalist domination,[40] while some on the right have accused the group of conspiring to impose a world government and planned economy.

This explains more. Anything with a German name is highly suspicious to me now. Written in Apr 26, 2017.

Note this well.

FOUNDED BY AN EX-NAZI AND AN AGENT OF THE VATICAN

The co-founders of the Bilderberg Group were two historical figures with checkered backgrounds. They were Prince Bernhard from the Netherlands and Józef Retinger who was a political advisor, originally from Poland, who worked with the Vatican.

Even though throughout his later adult life, up until his death in 1984, Prince Bernhard claimed he was never a Nazi. A historian, Annejet van der Zijl, found documents at the Humboldt University in Berlin, which prove Prince Bernhard was indeed a Nazi Party member until 1934 when he left school to work for the huge German chemical company named IG Farben. IG Farben did atrocious things in support of the Nazis including making the poisonous gas used to kill people in the German death camps.

Józef Retinger was a secret spy for the Vatican. He was expelled from allied countries for his activities in association with the Jesuits. He later went on to create the Council of Europe during 1949, which became part of the foundational movement, which eventually led to the formation of the European Union.

As I have said elsewhere the Nazis (as well as Marxists and communists) and Vatican are behind the New World Order with the Jews who say they are Jews but are not, and are of the synagogue of Satan.

You should consider the German names associated with the so-called Jews.

Traffickers are creating fake families to fool UK border staff

The traffickers are in it to make money. And to make life very awkward for the UK as the illegal immigrants put a huge strain on our resources. There is plenty of space and land elsewhere yet because the evil elites manipulate wars etc. people are displaced and many come to us for the free stuff we had out.

Immigrants often take precedent over long term citizens. My wife and I know someone who testifies to this.

The French government are reported as not helping matters. Since when have they ever been truly helpful? They are jealous of us for some reason and probably haven’t forgiven us for destroying their dreams of empire under Napoleon at Waterloo.

Many individual French do help however. My wife and I have several good French friends, and most French I have met in passing are very pleasant and helpful. It is unusual not to meet with kindness in France from the French if you make the effort to speak French.

I think Emmanuel Mac Ronnie wants to be the new Napoleon. But then Mac-ron is a Mo-ron.

‘Little sunshine boy’ Albie, 3, dies after being hit by tractor

This is so sad, but one of many accidents which happen. His mother testifies to him as, among other things, ‘…a caring boy who just wanted everyone to be happy.’

I was a bit like that as a child. I only remembered a year or so ago that at probably the age of 7, I said to the void as it were in my thoughts, that if my unhappiness (I was aware of unhappy things in my family relationships) meant that the world would be happy, then I would be happy.

The angels heard and at 62 years old now I understand how this came and is still coming true. And we know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him, who are called according to His purpose.

I also see a Brian Nutter was consider responsible for the death of his nephew, who was 4 years old and riding on the footplate of a load handler driven by Mr Nutter on the family farm in Lancashire.

Now this may be dark humour but it seems that Brian did not use his brain and was a complete nutter to let his nephew ride on the footplate at that age.

GOTT IM HIMMEL! The famously jingoistic yarns in Commando comics are under attack from woke warriors, says this war historian – and it could be their bloodiest battle yet

I enjoyed these cartoon stories as a child/teenager. The writer, Guy Walters, makes the valid point that, despite the violence, the comics are almost innocent compared to the graphic nature of computer games such as Call of Duty.

Apparently, Calum Laird, a former editor of Commando, has said the comics will be less gun-ho and presenting ‘more nuanced and compassionate depictions of wartime life.’ This is an interview with the chap.

Given that the Nazis are up to their old tricks again, perhaps the comics could still talk about the evil Hun. After all, not all Germans are Nazi or Hun-ish, many are Saxons related to us the Anglo-Saxons.

But the Nazis are nasty and always have been. The Commando should continue to portray them as such.

The shooting nowadays is not bullets of course, so much as vile vaccine ‘shots’. How about the Commando do a special cover with British Tommy saying ‘Let’s give you a taste of your own medicine, you swine Klaus Schwab, George Soros etc. etc.’ while injecting them with several needles at once and/or forcing big pharma  drugs down their throats.

Remote appointments here to stay, says top GP

This is Martin Marshall, a Professor. This tells you a little about him.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martin_Marshall

It is reported he says remote appointments are here to stay although he says they are not as suitable for older patients whatever that means.

He says the days of one doctor serving a community for decades are ‘long dead’.

And this is why many people are dead unnecessarily having being misdiagnosed by the many incompetent ill-trained doctors who do not understand the fundamentals of disease or indeed nutrition which is the key to good health.

This is interesting on continuity and long term benefits.

Note seeing a preferred GP is recommended for lower mortality. Chances of seeing the same GP twice re even one long term issue is difficult. I haven’t over my 4 years now except for seeing one part time GP more than once.

Otherwise it’s been various people, most unsatisfactory for which we pay eye-watering amounts in taxes.        

I see the NHS England issued guidance earlier this year that face-to face appointments must be offered unless there is good clinical reasons not to do so.

In the GP’s case I would say they use a cynical reason, i.e. they are too afraid of Covid 19 a.k.a. the ’flu and any excuse is valid to them not to see people if they can help it. I imagine they still receive funding via the NHS, i.e. us the taxpayers.

GP practices are after all businesses owned by the GP’s themselves but funded by us, the ignorant public who pay taxes.

These tell you more regarding Mr Marshall with regard to the Covid 19 vaccines.

https://www.rcgp.org.uk/about-us/news/2020/december/college-response-to-changes-to-pfizer-vaccine-schedule.aspx

https://www.rcgp.org.uk/about-us/news/2021/january/any-suggestion-precious-vaccines-should-be-thrown-away-should-be-dismissed-says-rcgp.aspx

https://www.rcgp.org.uk/about-us/news/2021/march/rcgp-strongly-urges-health-and-care-staff-to-have-covid-19-vaccine.aspx

https://www.rcgp.org.uk/about-us/news/2021/march/rcgp-responds-to-mhra-and-ema-announcements-on-safety-of-az-vaccine.aspx

I am going to use strong language here so look away if you are overly refined.

You are a fucking idiot Martin Marshall. Vaccines do bugger all except bugger up the immune system.

They do make money for the doctors who give them and for big pharma who make these poisonous things. If they contain anything other than saline, for as I repeat, how do we really know?

It may be boring to repeat this but Covid 19 has exposed the hypocrisy and ignorance of the vast majority of the medical profession. The sooner the NHS is dismantled and doctors sacked the better.

We can then have a truly streamlined health sector made up of nutritionists/chefs and nurses and paramedics who can deal properly with health issues.

Provided of course we also teach children/adults about how to look after themselves, to cook from fresh and what foods are suitable.

This article is some further nonsense from the man. There are sensible comments at the bottom. Doctors are overpaid already for doing precious little. Rip up the contracts and start again.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-11032225/Top-doctor-really-concerned-general-practice-way-dentistry.html#comments

I want my money back like others in the comments. They misdiagnosed me and I have suffered as a consequence. I could use the money wisely for the benefit of truly healing others.

We could even repair the roads – that would be good.

Consultant jobs not filled

Good. Waste of money anyway. These are consultant doctors. Almost ¾ of available posts had no applicants it says.

Perhaps I should apply. I know more about diseases and health issues that many doctors now.

Someone comes to me I will say ‘Your too fat, lazy, drive everywhere and you smoke, what do you expect?’

Outrage, mumble, mumble, outrage etc. etc.

‘Ok, ok. What do you eat? Macdonald’s and fish and chips. You are ill and you are surprised??’

Outrage, mumble, mumble, outrage etc. etc.

‘No, I am not giving you a prescription drug. Here’s a recipe book and nutritional information – you can read can’t you. Yes? That’s a relief’.

I shall write a book ’How to win friends and influence people’. Mmm? Its already been done?

I might be slightly more gentle, but it is high time people got real.

Also high time home economics taught properly in schools with proper kitchens using real food. Some schools do this, how many I don’t know.

As regards consultants generally one could write a book. Then throw it at them, then clear up the mess; it would be a very heavy book.

‘clot Satan UN’ is an anagram of consultant. This explains why.

Latest Navy gear…the sports bra

Oh Gott im himmel, save us from these stupid females!

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-11021829/New-rules-say-female-recruits-UK-Royal-Navy-sports-bras.html

The link show 3 Lieutenants (pronounced Loo-tenants), not four captains as referred to in the article.

There are some amusing, if predictable, comments in the comments section (where else?!).

Some may say ‘bra-vo’, others may say ‘What a load of tits.’ Is this want the Royal Navy has descended to?

In a war you can imagine the scenario ‘Lieutenant, radio for support at once!’. ‘Yes sir (do they say ‘sir’ to a female captain??), fire support sir?’.

‘No, my bra strap’s broken, and I need a new bra!’

Talking about Loo-tenants how about this.

Woke Whitehall flushes away £200,000 0f your cash on mixed toilets.

This is peanuts compared to the billions lost from fraud and dodgy contracts via corrupt civil servants etc.

And if my experience is anything to go on (but please don’t ‘go’ on my experience it doesn’t flush properly), the refurbishments will be bog standard anyway.

Parents slam drag queen library tour

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Attention_deficit_hyperactivity_disorder

Does he have ADHD? One things I for sure he will pervert children with his nonsense. What drugs is he on? Was he abused as a child? He needs serious help for his mental illness.

And his body testing for toxins. A seriously mixed up kid.

Why towns like mine desperately need ‘Bank hubs’

Why did they close the branches in the first place? To make life more difficult for customers and save some money which they will not pass on to customers.

With less staff there are less people to give checks and balances to the system and limit fraud. Where is the personal service? I want to see a friendly face, not deal with a faceless someone in a call centre somewhere.

Banks have become of limited use and frankly a waste of time.

Finally this.

Baldmichael Theresoluteprotector'sson. When not posting pages or paging posties, trying to be a good husband, and getting over a long term health issue, I am putting the world to rights. I have nothing better to do, so why not? But of course that includes dancing, being funny (in more than one sense), poking fun at life, poking fun at myself, deflating the pompous, reflating the sad. Seeking to heal the whole of the soul (and body where possible). In short making life as good as it possibly can be for others as well as myself. You can't say fairer than that. But if you can, please say. People need to know.

5 thoughts on “Heat, ice cream, BBC, cannabis, Ben & Jen, bison, Alok Sharma, GP’s, Consultants, Royal Navy, toilets, Aida H Dee etc.”

  1. Honestly, Bald Michael, I didn’t think I’d get through this today, but darn it, I persevered and accomplished my mission. It’s my fault, not yours — I’m a slow reader. It’s an OAP thing.

    A few notes, though, if you don’t mind.

    (1) Ice cream is ice cream; ingredients don’t matter. And anyway, no one lives forever — one may as well die with ice cream on their upper lip as not.

    (2) Back in the 1950s, one could stand just off to the side of a bus stop and observe what happened when the driver stepped on the accelerator. BOOF … large black exhaust covering everything for blocks. The black cloud was even enough to cause smokers to cough. But despite this wisdom, Tony Blair convinced the government to “prefer diesel engines” in the U.K. because they’re cleaner for the environment. So, Brits being good citizens (mostly), everyone went out and bought a diesel-powered car. Note: buying a car in the U.K. was never easy, but suddenly everyone was buying diesel engines, and there was money to be made by everyone in Germany. But then, as it does sometimes happen, the Brits changed their leadership … and the new guy announced the bad news about diesel engines and the environment — from what we all learned back in 1952.

    Bummer.

    But here’s what surprises your American cousins: That there are any politicians left alive in Merry Auld England.

    Overall, your effort today was an entertaining post. Thank you for taking the time to construct it.

    1. Hello and many thanks for your detailed and interesting comment, much appreciated. As regards the 2 points I would reply:

      1) Not all ice creams are created equal. Industrial food invariably boils done to a common denominator of equivalent of polyfilla, of very little nutritional value. Things used to be better, and there are people who make v. good ice creams at reasonable prices which will be much more satisfying. Firms like Unilever are only interested in profit, not health.

      2) I only found our a year or so ago that in London they replaced the electric trams with diesel buses in 1952 I believe. There were always issues with coal smoke but the smogs of London which killed and harmed so many arose thereafter.

      Tony Blair is a nasty liar. I use my bicycle but do drive. I knew how problematic the particulates are. and continued to buy a new petrol car (I need it for work more than anything).

      And as you say money to be made in Germany. Diesel was a German. Current germ theory is German. They get a lot of things wrong, including trying to invade Russia.

      As regards politicians, what surprises me is that we have any politicians alive at all anywhere.

    2. I forgot to say well done for persevering. I do try and split long posts into bite size pieces so if people want to dip into like a newspaper they can. Perhaps I ought to try a contents list.

      Because of my excessive tiredness of which I have yet to fully explain the causes, I struggle with long posts too, so I do my best to make it as readable as possible.

      1. Well written and constructed posts such as yours are always worth the time … don’t change anything on my account. My quip was an attempt at humor … which doesn’t always work. I hope you are feeling better.

      2. Sorry, hope I didn’t misconstrue what you said. It’s only that so many people eat so badly they don’t realise the harm they do to themselves.

        In the UK we end up paying for the stupidity via the NHS when the money could be better spent on making life really good for everybody.

        Your comment was still much appreciated even if I was dense enough to miss the humour!
