Saving for the next one

Wonderful, glorious news my friends: soon there will be the patter of tiny feet!

No no no – don’t worry, its not Mrs B that’s up the duff (heaven forbid there would be a smaller version of Danny Breslin unleashed on the world), it’s the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge expecting their second and I’m saving my money up for this great event. Why? Well I’m paying for it, the same as I paid for the last one they had, the same as I paid for their wedding, the same as I paid for their palace to be decorated, and the same as I’ve been paying for the happy father since the day he was hatched.

Oh, and by the way readers in the UK, you are too!

On the bright side, I could do with a new tea towel to replace my worn out Golden Jubilee commemorative one.

Is Darren there?

I’ve not been in the best of moods today thanks to a speeding fine that just dropped through my letterbox. 37mph in a 30mph zone it reckons – so I’m being fined £100 for 7mph? And to be honest I’m not sure I was even going that fast when I passed the camera/spy van; and another thing, surely that’s entrapment or something? Damn it!

I was just nicely simmering over that when the phone rang:

Me: Hello.

Her: Is that you Darren?

Me: No, I think you’ve got the wrong number.

Her: Oh, sorry about that.

Me: No problem.

I returned to my seat but, no sooner had I sat down, the phone rang again:

Me: Hello.

Her: Is that you Darren?

Me: No, wrong number again.

Her: Oh, that’s strange, I thought I’d dialled it right. Is Darren there at all?

Me: What, you mean in the house? I’ll just check…no, it’s the wrong number.

Her: Oh, sorry again.

Me: That’s okay, I had to get up to answer the phone anyway.

I went back to my seat and was just lowering myself down when the phone rang yet again – surely not?

Me: Hello.

Her: Is that you Darren?

Me: Yes.

Her: Oh thank God, I kept dialling the wrong number and a right miserable sod kept answering.

Me: Some people eh?

Her: That’s not Darren is it?

Me: Noooo, it’s the miserable sod..

​Kosovo and Ukraine: Compare and contrast

http://rt.com/op-edge/181580-kosovo-ukraine-compare-contrast/
The reporting of conflicts is usually divided depending on which side is reporting it, and whose interests it serves. Unfortunately independent journalism is a dying art.
There are always two sides to every story. We owe it to ourselves and the world community to read between the lines and make up our own minds.
Like my dad used to tell me: never believe anything you hear and only half of what you see.

​‘US and NATO using ISIS to re-intervene into the region’

http://rt.com/op-edge/181068-isis-iraq-violence-us-intervene/
It’s all just a game to them. Peace in our lifetime is the impossible dream, utterly unobtainable. It is undeniable that we are subject to the rule of psychopaths.

Anyone else scared?

The Letter From A Jewish Londoner That Went Viral – http://huff.to/1BqcfbV

There is never an excuse for antisemitism, there is never an excuse for racism, there is never an excuse for turning a blind eye to bigotry, there is never an excuse for letting evil have its way.
