  1. [Grandad, I’m having to compose this offline and then copypasta it in to your comments box. Dunno if it’s a problem with your box (oooh ahhhh) or a browser thing (Chrome) but every time i try and type something the page jumps down.)

    Uncannily, I just got this email from my local council:

    Dear The Blocked Dwarf

    takes a few minutes and will mean you can vote at elections.

    Love the use of the word ‘invitation’ when they mean a ‘threat’.

    • Fucking hell!  If you don’t register they fine you?  North Korea, here we come.

      Just to be safe, I just registered anyway.

  2. Hi G.D.

    Two invariables in life :

    What they promise is climate what you get is weather


    It doesn’t matter which party you vote for you still get a government

  3. Thanks for the explanation, I read it in the news but had no idea what it was all about. Seems politicians are the same the world over!

    • Frankly I have no idea what it’s all about either.  I rarely watch the news, and I tend to skip anything political on-line.  Too depressing and/or boring.


    Sums it up nicely.

    Got off the electoral role insanity a few years back. Apart from a few envelopes addressed to ‘the occupier’ whatever the fuck that is, which get burnt, and a card or two sent to ‘the address’, (yes they really do send cards to addresses  no names no titles just the address which is wholly owned approved created and registered by the council) urging someone to reply and a couple of knocks there is no downside.

    Don’t tell the bastards anything. All they can do is ask and certainly don’t hand over ‘personal details for their records’.
