The corrupt French

The UK has been told it must pay an extra £1.7bn (2.1bn euros) towards the European Union’s budget because the economy has performed better than expected in recent years.

Under the new calculations, the UK and the Netherlands are both being asked to pay more, while France and Germany are both set to receive rebates.

Sooner we get out the damn EU the better. That France are paying less just cannot be a surprise – there is a higher chance that turkeys would vote for Christmas.

Why should the UK stay in a corrupt club that for the 19th year in a row cannot get their accounts approved?

Looks good to me.

Inbox: Google owns my life.

Today, we’re introducing something new. It’s called Inbox. Years in the making, Inbox is by the same people who brought you Gmail, but it’s not Gmail: it’s a completely different type of inbox, designed to focus on what really matters.
Larry’s Propaganda Spokesman

Oh just fuck off will you. The only “something new” created is a way to suck even more user information in to feed this advertising company need to know more so they can pack your eyes with even more ads.

“When you start using Inbox, you’ll quickly see that it doesn’t feel the same as Gmail—and that’s the point.”
The point is that they don’t want you to feel like you are being data-mined.

Please – are you so stupid to fall for this?

Homeopathy is bunk

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recalled homeopathic remedies made by a company called Terra-Medica because they may contain actual medicine.

Wired

Homeopathy is junk. Garbage. Complete bollocks.
And if you think otherwise? Oh you sad thing…. and you are allowed to breed….

A sad Storm

There’s a field close by where I have taken the dogs – first Winston, then Storm as well – for walks for years. It’s a long field with a treeline, then more field extending right and a wide stream across which are more large fields. Sometimes there are horses in there and as one is quite aggressive if the horses are this side of the stream we don’t go in, or if we get to the treeline and see the horses then we leave.
A combination of events that since Winston died we had not been down and to the right past the treeline. It’s where both dogs could get down the bank and then paddle around in the water. Storm would try to grab little pebbles that I would throw in close to him.

Storm and Winston

Couple of days ago the weather was good, there were no horses so we went back there. I wandered toward the end of the field knowing that Storm would be following. I turned round at the end and looked back for him. There are two places where the dogs would head into the water and Storm was sat at the first one just looking across the stream. When I got to him there was nothing he was focusing on. He was just sat (which he never does when out – it’s either walk / run / jump / lie down) quietly looking. It felt like he was remembering Winston. We sat together for a few minutes before he decided it was time to go. He didn’t go in the water.

More MS incompetence

I made a complaint online about the MS care we are not getting.
I made this complaint at the University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust website as that is the place that employs these (alleged) MS Nurses.
I just got a phone call. That trust had said “Nothing to do with us” and passed it on to another NHS Trust in Leicester. I gave names and details to the lady who called and she said Yes, I had made the complaint in the right place and that the UHL Trust had got it wrong. She will pass it back and tell them that they need to deal with this.

Clueless. And in charge of the UHL Trust? This bunch. They must be so proud.

– And just as I post this I get another call from the UHL saying the email sent to that other Trust was an error, it is being investigated and that this is all logged in the system. That a computer is involved is meant to make me feel better? …… ffs
