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.

I had to travel to Norwich City yesterday and found myself on their new Nothern bypass at rush hour. If you like taking your life in your hands, give this road a go. It seemed to be the German car/30-45 drivers most to blame, Madness, agression,speed at the many roundabouts. Either drunk or drugged, or rushing home to get the booze and coke after a stressfull day. This road has the highest number a crashes in Norfolk. Beware!!!!

You know who I am

You know who I am

Yes. I burn lard candles in a plant pot to stay warm. I buy food that's been reduced to the lowest possible prices. I mend my clothes. I cook meals from scratch (it's cheaper and healthier). I brew my own beer and make my own cider (Kind of have to now). I work at home so don't need to travel often. OK, this is basically 12 hour days for a fraction of minimum wage at the moment, but I've made my bed.

War, Famine, Pestilence and Death

Don't count on the west (NATO) (US) to do anything. Putin has read this correctly. There is too much corruption in high places in Europe, money means more than principels. Russia is once again regaining lost regions to reforn The Soviet Union and become the power it once held. The West will capitulate to maintain the financial status quo.

What a mess to wake up to this morning. Don't know about anyone else, but I think we could all see this on the cards and of course China is being very quiet through it all. #StandWithUkraine

COVID-19: Queen cancels virtual engagements as she suffers 'mild' coronavirus symptoms.

Oh dear what a shame. Never mind dear, I'm sure all those private specialists and doctors will look after you and then send their bills to the UK tax payers.

"German producer prices soar at quickest rate in 73 years"

Watch out all you German car owners, Driving one of those status symbols is about to become very painful in your pockets. Germany will be forced to pass on all the rises in manufacturing costs.

Boris Johnson refuses to say if he would quit if fined for breaking Covid laws

What's the point. The Tory machine has already silenced the MET and all others in this farse of an investigation. Only the electorate will be able to sack these people in the next general election.

While some families cannot feed themselves,and others face hardship, these greedy scum bags continue to stick their snouts into the trough. More evidence that the human race is regressing to animal instints.

Prince Andrew’s payout to Virginia Giuffre ‘is worth its weight in gold’ for Queen

But I do wonder if there were others in high places involved in this case who have had to dig deep into (allegedly) their pockets to keep hidden. This case is far from over for Andrew, as there are people still digging into this affair.

@ Kenny, yes you are correct. But it just proves the fact that the human race is slowly regressing back to an animalistic state. Take away the human races comfort blanket (easy living) and just watch how society falls apart. Hense= Mental illness, drug abuse, high financial debt, homelessness, violence, Political scandals, corruption in high places, etc,etc. And now the threat of wars between nations. And all this comes down to one factor..... There are too many human beings on this planet.

Sooner the spammers realise their sh!te just gets deleted and they get blocked the better. More work for them than it is for me... and the little URLs in a full stop don't work either. It demonstrates what I've come to believe perfectly, that the world is full of cnuts.
