I am really sick and tired of all these fucking clichés that have been spawned by the financial crisis.

They are stress-testing my patience to the limit.

Now I realise we must move forward but it is time the clichés were burned, or at least given a haircut.

I know we are in difficult times but  each new tranche of clichés is bringing me closer to the edge.

Let’s stop.


Let’s draw a line in the sand.

  1. Oh – that’s interesting!  My flag has changed because I’m using a UK IP address so I can watch the IPlayer.

  2. Good Lord Grandad, just build a bridge and get over it, or next thing you’ll be attacking our precious children !!

  3. I actually really like the sound of “burning the Bondholders”. I hope it becomes a proper event on the Meet-Up site. Hell, even if it goes up on Ticketmaster for 25 euro plus 10 euro scam-booking-fee. I’d still go and watch.

  4. Grandad,
    I must be email address challenged, I tried to send the following to your email address listed in the contact section, but no can do!  Wanted to pass on to you a book that I thought you might be interested in, “The Speckled People”, by Hugo Hamilton.  May be you have already read the book, it wouldn’t surprise me but if not, you and any of your readers would probably really enjoy the story because of the relevance to all that is bombarding us these days.  Sorry if I caused any consternation among your readers by not posting a comment pertaining to the subject at hand.

  5. John – The address on the contact page is unfortunately working.  leastwise, I’m still getting spam there.
