A nose for a story

June 30, 2006 at 7:57 pm | Posted in England | 1 Comment

When one blogs,you become aware of just who makes an impact in the field that you or I care about,whilst I make an honest effort to make a point,I am a lone person with no help or endless time to look for things to trigger my foaming at the mouth performances,plus I work full time, and do have a life elsewhere.BUT

Like the Ghost Busters“who ya gonna call”,well,since the revamp one has to say The England Project, again and again coming up with the goods,such as this very interesting article from The Christian Science Monitor,which I think is American,I’m not sure ?,but anyway it is really well written,and if it is American shows a remarkable understanding of our situation in England,one you would usually not see from that side of the pond!.

Murray needs a lesson in diplomacy

June 30, 2006 at 3:29 pm | Posted in England, personal opinion, Scotland, Sport, Tennis, World Cup | Leave a comment

After my own thoughts on the matter, I was pleased to catch an article in the Daily Express today which shows that I am not alone in my stance.

Leo Mckinstry today had a few points that I have already posted on plus many I agree with,such as.

The sadness is that,after decades of frustration,our hopes should be borne by such an unedifying,immature and unpatriotic figure,who has as big a talent for alienating his natural supporters as for match winners”.

“Murray has proved to be a petulant often miserable youth,indulging in foul mouthed tantrums on the court and anti english diatribes off it”.

“In the run up to Wimbledon,Murray caused a storm by expressing his contempt for the England football team,saying he hoped they were dumped out of the World Cup,and expressed his solidarity with England’s World Cup opponents”.

It is next to impossible to really sympathise with Murray with the way he continually bites the hand that feeds him, ie English tax money.

My natural instinct is to be quite lenient,then you read more about the unfortunate things he has said,and ones good will starts to be strained,I am trying not to feel guilty about disliking him, but he does keep on saying and doing the wrong thing for all of England to see like a red rag to a Bull.

If you come to England to play tennis in England at the All England Club,in front of many thousand English fans both in and out of court,then proceed to brazenly happy slap the English Nation for all to see, then the individual in question is either, a racist,a twat, or a fool,all be it a young one.

Whilst I will not condone excessive personal attacks on Murray, he is an individual who is extremely difficult to like under any circumstances.

A backlash own goal

June 29, 2006 at 9:54 pm | Posted in England, Scotland, Tennis, World Cup | Leave a comment

Having already posted on my genuine displeasure at the way so called English people have viciously attacked the tennis player Andy Murray for being a product of Scottish brainwashing,I must now publicly disassociate myself from any comments made by individuals claiming to be English on his blog as they have gone so far over the line.

According to Toque the media are all a flap about it, The Scotsman, The BBC,The Herald,The Daily Record,all saying the same things.

It makes me mad that England can take two steps forward as a Country,only to be pushed back one big step by a mentality that one had hoped was on the decline on both sides of the border,WE both England and Scotland need to step back from each other.

Andy Murray must take full responsibility for his actions in future,wearing Scottish colours whilst representing Great Britain WAS REALLY STUPID,and I was not impressed when I saw it,BUT that is as far as it goes,writing that he is a (something something) on my blog is OK,bitching at him in person,saying things that are simply MAD and grotesque is not.

May I suggest to his website people that having unmonitored comments is NUTS.

The moral high ground

June 29, 2006 at 2:39 pm | Posted in England, Human Rights, Scotland, Sport, Tennis | Leave a comment

STOP just STOP right now with this wa wa wa,you silly little burk.

Andy Murray is young and stupid,having grown up in a Country who spend all their time disliking England as a hobby, of course he will be supporting everyone but England,that’s a Scots job description,we in England are by no means forced to support Scotland or Wales ourselves,so to bang on about how he should be forced to support England is plainly blinkered and false.

I believe his issue right now is that as an athlete who represents Great Britainnot Scotland at tennis,his personal opinion should of been kept quiet,he is perfectly entitled to have whatever opinion he likes as long as he keeps it under his hat,to publicly air his (what ever you want to call it)opinion on this problematic subject has just been an example of poor management and personal judgement on his part.

BUT NO ONE HAS DIED,it is not THAT IMPORTANT

WE in England must not give up the moral ground, according to my Oxford Dictionary,the definition of MORAL is

1 concerned with the principles of right or wrong behaviour.

2 following accepted standards of behaviour.

Moral,Morals,Morality,you cannot abuse someones right to an opinion just because you don’t agree in THIS WAY,to do so you undermine the high ground England had,and make Andy Murray a martyr for the dick heads who will exploit extreamists on both sides.

WE IN ENGLAND,should show we are better than this and stop this bear baiting exercise,those who put vile unhelpful comments on the kids website do everyone in England a disservice,England is a bigger and better place now,and we should show that by,just forgetting about him,WHO CARES WHAT THE LAD THINKS!!,are we saying that this abusive onslaught is valid,or either a reflection of the principles of right or wrong behaviour ?,and is it following accepted standards of behaviour ?

NO

So he’s Scottish,so he is a bit naive,so he’s got crap management,do not damage England’s reputation over a kid,he isn’t worth it.

Poor poor lad,whoever it was who convinced him to present his bottom to an onslaught of uncensored comments needs a little talking to.

If you want to witness for yourself this train wreck in slowmo,you can HERE

Whilst I would not lose any sleep seeing him roundly beaten 6-0 6-0 6-0,I would have to say that the kid is still young and stupid,so perhaps doesn’t warrant such “ahum,cough” comments.

Barnett formula gravy train gets a telling off

June 24, 2006 at 9:51 pm | Posted in England, Equal opportunities, Politics, Scotland, Scottish Raj, west lothian question | Leave a comment

The Barnett Formula,or as we say in England,lawfull tax theft.

"If you tickle us do we not laugh,if you prick us do we not bleed,if you wrong us do we not revenge",or at least that's what Star Trek says.

But unlike the movies in real life, England is The Undiscovered Country,
If no one in power can grasp the concept of England do WE still exist ?

One spiffing way to keep the punters down is to rob Peter to pay Paul,and that is exactly what the UK Government have been doing to us English for 30 plus years via the ever so fair tax rape known as The Barnett Formula.

In todays Daily Mail,The Labour peer who invented the system by which billions of pounds of English taxpayers' money is diverted to Scotland said the system should be scrapped because it is unfair.
ABOUT B LODY TIME

Under the Barnett formula, drawn up in the 1970s, Scotland currently gets £1,500 more cash to spend on public services for each member of the population than England.

Official figures this year put public spending per head in England at £6,762. But in Scotland it was £8,265 per head, a difference of £1,503.

But this issue has been brought up numerous times before such as HERE

From 2 years ago
Lord Barnett has had enough, and is demanding that his name be removed from what he says is an "embarrassing" Treasury formula that puts an extra £1,000 per head on Scotland’s spending power when it comes to public services.

And the former cabinet minister says he is now ready to take on Westminster’s "Scottish Mafia" and fight for the end to a legacy that has blighted his life for 25 years.

"It is a great embarrassment to have my name attached to so unfair a system," he said.

Read Wikipedias view of The Barnett Formula

Basically the formula is a big fat money grab exercise by the UK for it's Homeland(Scotland)mercilessly raping and pillaging English taxes to pay for the sky to be a very special kind of blue all financed by England.

If you wish to read all you can on this Tax England to death policy,you can do so by going HERE,plus if you don't believe me the UK Gov have a pdf on the concept of Barnett HERE

The ONE moment English football has

June 23, 2006 at 6:43 pm | Posted in England, Football, World Cup | Leave a comment

England as a football team,let's face it,they are pretty average when it counts,with this game at the weekend being very likely their last or at least one from last,this years World Cup is history for us very very soon.

We in England are used to sporting averageness,just look at the Rugby team right now-what a dog!!!.

Anyway,"yes yes keep going on about 66 why don't you",well yes other than 66 England is always the warm up act ready for the real teams to finish up later.

BUT YES 1966 WORLD CUP FINAL

The ONE genuine moment that fate flipped a coin and it came down on OUR side that ONE fleeting moment that expectation and reality actually sat at the same table.

I am under no illusions about England's chances in this years event,it has been 40 years since fate got drunk and got her sums wrong to hand England the World Cup,I honestly feel that it may take till I retire to see her drunken party trick once more.

PS-Big shame about all those flags for a team not in the World Cup,We are England not Britain ,but hey it was 1966,we know better now.
