There's lots of gripes on the site, but sometimes it's good to have a moan about everything in general and nothing in particular.

When calling organisations, why should we have to pay for their inability to employ enough staff and keep on paying often heavily for a call where they use a call system which has placed you into a queue of muzzak? Why should we have pay to wait 5, 10, 15 ... minutes or more sometimes at premium rate for this inefficiency? Make them pay for the call while we wait. If they want our business make them pay.

Also ban the use of ticket price add-on costs for booking tickets for theatre shows, concerts and films online or by telephone.

BBC News - ‎1 hour ago‎
The House of Lords is the "best day-care centre for the elderly in London", a Lib Dem peer says in a new BBC documentary.


And just who do you all believe are having to keep these old decrepit dribbling wasters in the Lords?

If any of you are interested there's a petition to keep Sounds of the Sixties on Radio 2 at 8 - 10am instead of 6 - 8am here

http://www.thepetitionsite.com/691/996/325/return-quot-sounds-of-the-sixtiesquot-to-8am-saturday-morning/

The BBC must be mad if they think we want to get up at 6am on a Saturday! They say "If it’s too early for some listeners, they can listen again to the programme via the BBC iPlayer." Well, I've just spent £100 on a good quality radio for the kitchen, I'm not about to start listening to the radio on the inferior speakers of my laptop on an internet connection which is a bit slow at the best of times!

Tony Blair has been absent from British politics for years, now - but today he returned in spectacular style, urging the UK's population to "rise up" against Brexit.


Blair is just another mouth piece for a terrified EU. Empires within the master classes are crumbling, and they know it, but as the saying goes, a drowning man will clasp at anything to survive. BREXIT has started a chain reaction around European countries and questions are being asked by the populace " We also would be better off outside this mess". The EU was formed for the rich to control their empires.

"Overseas aid given a budget of £1.3bn to spend over five years in countries like India, China and Brazil".


Makes sense, especially when our NHS is in crisis with underfunding and the shocking lack of Nurses and Doctors. But I suppose that those people handing out all this cash to other countries don't have to use the NHS.

"Police catch more Norfolk motorists using mobile phones while driving - and fines set to increase"

Fines are set to rise to £100, what a farce, Make it £1000 and a one year ban/car impounded and see how quickly this offence stops. The authorities don't want to stop it completely, it's too much of a money maker to supplement the Governments coffers. The same applies to speeding, big money maker as long as they don't go too far with the punishment.

"Labour vows to close 'north-south divide' in public spending".

How on Earth does a defunct, virtually extinct political party expect to put such changes into practice when there is so much infighting within their own ranks?
With the Tories stumbling along over BREXIT and Labour beating themselves up daily, UKIP are now a very real option for more disgruntled voters to turn to. Some of you may scoff at this, but who could have predicted that TRUMP would win? The world political theatre is in turmoil, anything is possible.

City gloom deepens amid Brexit uncertainty
Financial services firms reported being more pessimistic in the last quarter - as economic forecasts see a tough few years ahead. (for themselves).

The only few tough years ahead are for their own fat bloated coffers. The greed goes on and on.

Probe into last year's 'flash crash' reveals how Brexit doomsters sank the pound
This is Money - ‎10 hours ago‎
Nervous traders jittery about Brexit and a gloomy story in the Financial Times contributed to a dramatic plunge in the pound in October, investigators have said.

We should also be aware of those within the UK that have been feeding from the big EU trough.

EU's chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier wants 'special relationship' with City of London
Telegraph.co.uk - ‎43 minutes ago‎
The EU's chief negotiator on Brexit has offered the first hint of a compromise from Brussels to ensure member states continue to have easy access to the City.


Well, so much for the horror stories threatened upon us in the UK by the EU thugs after BREXIT.
Money is God, money rules, and the principals spouted by those self righteous clowns in Brussels must now take a back seat.

European judges will rule Britain for years
The Times (subscription) - ‎16 hours ago‎


This I very much doubt this, by the time that the French, Italians,Dutch elections are completed and they start their own withdrawal from the EU, these judges wont be of any significance anyhow!
This story was most probably invented by the Remoaning losers.

We can all see that despite the claims from the remoaners concerning BREXIT, the UK is roaring ahead and is a leading economy in the world. Even the BOE has had to admit that their forecast of a down turn in the economy was completely wrong, (and we all know that they were told to say this by the rich and powerful). As this country moves to leave the EU, which is a certainty, we will hear less and less from the doom mongers as they slide into obscurity.
