fears Leave

I go among trees and sit still.
All my stirring becomes quiet
around me like circles on water.
My tasks lie in their places
where I left them, asleep like cattle.
Then what is afraid of me comes
and lives a while in my sight.
What it fears in me leaves me,
and the fear of me leaves it.
It sings, and I hear its song.

Why the hell do they want to know all this stuff???

What the hell is going on in this country at the moment??  We wanted to take out a small insurance policy that pays out maybe £10K should one or the other of us die. We naively thought that we'd be able to pay out a fixed sum monthly in order to facilitate this. would think. Oh no....
We went to see the insurance fellow at our bank Santander, I was asked for photo id, and for a detailed breakdown of our financial incomings & outgoings each month!
I don't believe that its neither his, nor Santander's damn business how much money we have coming into Woolley Grange each month nor what we spend our money on.  Is this a 'Big Brother'state or what people? He can just shut the fuck up! Incidentely, I did not supply him with the information &, after telling him politely  why I would not be supplying the required information, I bade him "good day" & left. he, sat there during this diatribe nodding in an empathetic manner whilst smiling at me in a patronising way

The local elections-a protest?

Look what I've just discovered I've got....!

The day after the local election results in the UK we see that the 'far from honest' UKIP  which is essentially a covert cover for a right wing Fascist political party has gained a number of seat at the expense of the mainstream parties.
However I am of the opinion that the success of UKIP is based upon sensationalist, racist gutteral polices. The leader of the party, Nigel Farage speaks the language of the rabble rouse, the polices tof the side streets. language & beliefs that appeal to the more reactionary of the electorate.
seeing Mr Farage grinning, smug face, beaming from ear to ear looking like a dog whos' discovered that he has 3 pairs of bollocks made my teeth itch.
Sadly, I have to say that Ed Milliband (the leader of the UK Labour Socialist Party) hasn't quite got the charisma or fire in his belly to lead the Socialist cause into the General election of 2015.

Following pressure from my off springs to "come into the 21st century dad" I have enrolled on Facebook. (for better of for worse!) Therefore I now have another avenue to pour forth my rants! This may or may not limit the number of rants that I pour forth on this site-time will tell. If you, dear reader wish to 'add'me to see what the hell I may be ranting about, please feel free to go on to the Facebook thingy.
