A wee star!
Heading back to the boathouse yesterday I ran into Malky, Alexa and family they like me did not catch but weren't overly despondent. Angling is about more than repeatedly catching fish, it is a way of life where to the astute wonders invisible to the must catch people and Muppets become apparent. I could not help but notice the beaming smile on Alexa's face and I thought I should ask her if she caught anything. She replied that she did catch and held out her hand and nestling in her palm were two stones. She was delighted to have caught these two stones and was taking them home to a place of safety! The unbridled optimism of youth - peerless!
Oh and many thanks for the equipment you left Malky it is very much appreciated!
I watched the news yesterday with much scrutiny in particular with regard to the anti austerity marches in Glasgow and London. In London alone it was estimated 250,000 people attended in protest against the huge and unnecessary cuts to public spending which will see our public services decimated and the many poor in our society brought to their knees! Oblivious to other tried and tested means of defecit reduction where the weak and poor are not subject to punishment they press on with their despicable dogma!
Of course its not all about reducing the defecit, minister without a clue Gideon Osborne is obsessed with paring back the state until nothing is left. He will succeed, because by the time the next election comes around there will be no credible opposition to the vile Tories! Instead of hammering the tax evaders and those in the 40 and 50%bracket they prefer to hobble the poor to maintain their voter base.
That England will go through this is without doubt, but for us here in Scotland we could be rid of these dummys much sooner! e must urge our elected government to move quickly towards complete independence so that we may leave behind the destitution and vindictiveness meted out by the vile Tories! In this scenario my heart would go out to the poor of England and Wales for whom there is no salvation!
The anti austerity marches will continue and doubtless break out into civil disobedience. The Tories however will not budge since thanks to Weak Ed Milliband and diddy Puppet Clegg they have a majority. For Scots the path is clear and we must move rapidly towards independence for the sake of the weak the poor and the disadvantaged in our society! Westminster holds nothing for equality seeking Scots who long for a society based on fairness and equity! To all the people who took part in the protest marches thinking not of themselves but of others who are struggling to survive - RESPECT!
