    Guess what… It’s raining…

    Global warming.

    More like global wetness or global sogginess.  The past three weeks have seen the wettest on record for the UK, we’ve had strong wind (not just after the sprouts), heavy rain, and trees frequently being blown over, so if you haven’t been blown to oblivion yet, let’s hope it is coming to an end soon.  It doesn’t look like it is.  I think we need to, however just calm down a little about the recent semi-extreme weather.

    Let me explain, indulge me for a moment.

    As a human, living in England, we have a tendency to over estimate the effect of weather on us.  It’s not that we over exaggerate the weather, we just don’t seem to be able to cope with it.  We seem to have this inability to cope when we have a storm or rather unexpected deluges which admittedly have led to me starting to build an ark, but alas, has it really been that bad?

    It has for some, some poor fellows have had all they own washed away.  Now, you’d think that they would be in receipt of some form of benefit or help from the government.  No.  They have had nothing, and yet we send over millions of pounds worth of aid to far away civilisations to help them after a natural disaster. Lets not start to imagine that I am trying to play down the awful things that have happened around the world, but I would like to see some help for people here, after all they are in need of some aid too.

    I often close these posts with a question and yet again I am going to do it.  Should we now, give some aid to those who need it here?

    Anyone for snow?

     Posted in Breaking News at 7:13 on Friday, February 6th, 2009 by Mr. Rant

    It would seem that the snow is here for the long-term.  Last night the snow here has started to clear and melt away but a heavy snowfall during the night has brought back the icy and slippery roads this morning.  The worry is that, there might not be enough grit to cover the ensuing drama and that we’re going to end up in a bad situation whereby we get stuck in our homes and cannot move around.

    It’s interesting that both BRMB and National Rail are running cut down websites this morning to cover access issues.  The latest news from the Government is to not go anywhere unless its absolutely necessary… as if we’re going to listen and keep to that…

    For the next few days we’ll keep you posted on the latest news.

    Its a bank holiday, and it rained..

     Posted in In the Summertime at 20:31 on Sunday, August 24th, 2008 by Mobile Rant

    You usually think of a holiday as being wam summer sun and quiet restings on a beach somewhere in Spain.

    But an English summer holiday is different. Yes we have some sun but ninety percent of the time, rain is the key constituant.

    That of course and the fat idiot trolling his way through the entire food chain; but it has to come with chips or at least with a lot of suagr.

    It’s interesting when you think that in modern society we haven’t cast out these oafs in a mass cull.

    Maybe just maybe one day that might happen…
