    Your right to protest…

     Posted in Anger Level 4 & Economic Climate at 15:03 on Wednesday, November 2nd, 2011 by Mr. Rant

    In the UK we all have a right to protest, these protests much be peaceful and not cause a disturbance to people going about their daily business.  You can do it anywhere, at anytime, it’s allowed.  It is now allowed on private ground, and is not supposed to disturb the wider public, now it’s an interesting topic of conversation at present; we must ask, do we agree?

    Now I’m talking specifically about the Occupy the Stock Exchange protests in London.  I do not agree with them first and foremost, it’s pathetic that their causing a disturbance amongst honest law abiding public who may want to visit St Paul’s but are being stopped because the ‘protestors’ are too short sighted to see what they’re doing.

    I do however, agree with why they’re protesting.  It’s totally wrong that some echelons of society can get away with making money at our expense, I think most people bar the stock brokers and traders themselves would agree with that at least.

    Something needs to be done with these people who think they can disturb other people with their pathetic little protests just because, I fear they have nothing else to do.  I honestly believe that there are better ways to get your point across rather than pissing off masses of people and costing the country even more money by having to police these protests.

    Comic Relief 2011 – Why we won’t be supporting it

     Posted in Economic Climate at 23:42 on Saturday, March 5th, 2011 by Mr. Rant

    The Comic Relief charity organisation was founded in 1986 by a team of crack comedians, namely Richard Curtis and Alexander Mendis to help provide a charitable contribution in response to the famine in Ethiopia.  To date it’s raised millions towards the cause and provided similar help around the world.

    In more recent times it’s diversified it’s charitable output to help more in Britain, but the majority of the money still heads to Africa.  This is the problem we have with it.  Whilst we appreciate the need to help our fellow humans around the world there is a worsening degree of poverty in this country that must be curtailed.

    We’re in the midst of a social disaster and personally I don’t feel that sending a boat load of money abroad is conducive to stopping this terrible event.  We have a situation where we’re sending large amounts of cash abroad and not thinking about the people here who desperately need help.

    There are families in Britain today who can’t feel their children because they’ve been made unemployed or have lost their houses because they cannot pay the mortgage, it’s a serious situation and we should be thinking about those on our doorsteps.

    So what can we do?

    By all means if you’re that way inclined give money to Comic Relief, there’s still many people who need help in this world but spare a though for those in the UK who need help urgently and cannot get it.  We may well be a welfare state but in times of recession and social hardship we need to be thinking of people closer to home.

    We won’t be changing the design of the site this year, frankly we can’t be bothered and secondly we don’t think it would be right to give support to a charity where most of the money doesn’t help those in need in this so called First World Country.

    Price Match = Kaching

    Currys have done me a great service with the sale of some headphones. The thing is, is that I really treasure my music and my iPod and you really need some good headphones to make it worthwhile.

    I have some lovely Sennheiser DX400 iPhone headphones and I’ve just purchased some more minus the iPhone microphone for my laptop and any other purpose.

    They are the best headphones you could ask for.
