United Kingdom

An empire in decline but a sweet land

Just across the English Channel from France, the countries; England, Scotland and Wales are referred to as Great Britain, the United Kingdom or the UK for short.

The UK was the dominant cultural, industrial and maritime power of the 19th century. At its zenith, the British Empire stretched over one-fourth of the earth’s surface raping and pillaging in the name of selfish capitalism, and today it’s still a leading trading power and financial center. It’s people are undecided about quitting the European Union and it’s leaders are engaged in the fight against the terrorism they helped to create. Despite the recent Islamist attacks, do not be deterred from visiting this great country.

The Graveyard Shift.

And British poverty

They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken & Sold to the tannery…….if you had to do this to survive you were “Piss Poor”

But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn’t even afford to buy a pot……they “didn’t have a pot to piss in” & were the lowest of the low

The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn’t just how you like it, think about how things used to be. Here are some facts about the 1500s:

Most people got married in June because they took their

The Burkini Ban

The crazy politics surrounding Islam

A recent controversy that has come to the fore primarily on European beaches is that of Muslim women dressed in a head to toe burkini. Sadiq Khan is banning bikini ads in London and replacing them with Islamic propaganda. Some French people have been outraged enough to get a court order banning such apparel on public beaches, however a higher court overturned that decision. So what is it about the burkini?

The burkini is worn by Muslim women who under Islamic law have very few rights and freedoms. In totalitarian Islamic societies, a camel has more rights than a woman who cannot leave the house without her

Qatari Princess Shaikha Salwa’s Sexual Scandal With Seven Men

It is often said that gossip makes the world go round and such stories should be left out of the media. But this is such a juicy tale that gave the world’s media organisations a field day.

The context is patriarchal and moral. Probably millions of men have had sex with multiple partners over the space of weeks and if anyone finds out, they are seen as heroes. Should any man be discovered in bed with seven women, he would be seen as a god.

However when a woman has such a strong libido, she is condemned and her family often suffers some disgrace. Civilisation only pretends to be moral

London

A trading and tourist hub

Big Ben and the houses of parliament

With a population of eight million, London is the seat of the British parliament and a major centre for modern culture and capitalism. If you have ever played the board game of monopoly, you will be familiar with many of the place names.

London is a great destination with many places of interest including Buckingham Palace, the museums, Tower of London, the London Eye, Piccadilly Circus, Barnsbury Park and Westminster Abbey.

Mid summer (July and August) is the best time to visit as the weather is generally warm and settled, however accommodation can be scarce and prices higher. The popular attractions are often crowded with long

Brighton

The UK’s south coast

With interesting things like a palace and a collapsing pier, Brighton is a lively and captivating city. In between drag shows and shopping, there is always time for some interesting sight seeing. The Regency Pavilion, collapsing pier, other pier, gay scene, drug scene and drag scene, are what Brighton is famous for. It is known to be an interesting and pleasurable place to visit, and live. It claims itself to be “most enchanting, exciting, extraordinary seaside city in Britain”. This is a pretty bold statement, but is actually true.

With 250,000 people living here, Brighton is big enough to be cool but small enough to have a real flavour about the place. It is known as

The British Penny

The British Penny: European Union Directive No. 456179

In order to bring about further integration with the single European currency, the Euro, all citizens of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland must be made aware that the phrase “Spending a Penny” is not to be used after 30 April 2015.

From this date onwards, the correct term will be: “Euronating”.

It is hoped that this will be a great relief to everyone.

If you have any questions, just give me a tinkle!

In for a penny, in for a pound – to take a risk

A girls life and shit happens

There are stories about and lots of reports in regards to girls on trains, here’s one girls story:

There’d been a breakdown on the line and my train was running late. I was more annoyed that I’d probably have to work late to make up for my late arrival at work.

The platform was crowded I doubted that everyone would fit into the train as we waited, I had a few flirty conversations with some of the guys who usually kept their noses glued to their notebooks. Sometimes I read, but more often I liked to watch the scenery pass by or have a conversation with someone.

The train already looked full as it

Our Dark Future

The rise of insanity

Our corporate masters a tightening the screws despite public protest. Here in good old New Zealand, the government continues to sell the people out. They have been slowly but steadily making it easier for international corporations to do as they please and paying lip service to the real needs of the people.

The escalation in house prices is simply part of an international conspiracy by the world’s largest banks providing favours for the executives and return for perks and the surety of good jobs when they leave politics although in this country, politicians continue to receive a substantial salary even when they leave office which is way beyond that of any normal retiree.

Over the past

Internet date

There are no guarantees, but often good fortune

Despite the fact that there were men eager to get her into bed, Karen thought she wanted more than that. She’d joined several dating sites and met this guy Mike who seemed a decent enough chap. After a few introductory message exchanges through the website, they graduated to some conversations on Skype. They’d gone quite well and Mike seemed to have brains as well as brawn so she agreed to meet him for dinner.

He had a schedule to keep so Karen agreed to meet him after work for drinks and dinner. There was no time to go home and change after work, so she wore a slightly more provocative outfit than
