Bit of an Update

Been a while since I posted something proper on here that wasn't either 2 sentences long or a joke.

Been a bit of fun time recently. I spent a week in hospital which I was highly unimpressed by. I did get my own private room though which was a bonus. Some cute doctors too. And the nurses were very sweet. Except that they kept stabbing my in the arm and stealing my blood. This is a strange and disturbing habit they have and they should really see someone to help them get past it...

As I have been spending a lot of time in bed I have had a lot of time to think and I have decided that the whole world is going to pot.

I was having a discussion about house prices and the bands for paying council tax or something. Now - our house was bought in the 80's for 32k-ish. Unless we sell it, this is what it is worth. The government wants to re-evaluate all the house prices and charge you the extra. Our house could be worth over 200k now but as I said, that is only if we sell it. Which we are not planning to do. Also they haven't changed the value of these bands. There are very few places where the average house price is less than 100k (if any) now. When these bands were thought up the average house price was hugely less. The bands have never been changed to meet the change in house prices. This is ridiculous and just a way for the government to get more money out of people so they can spend it on stupid judges who let rapists walk free and other stupid court cases, holding terror suspects instead of shipping them out of the country (once they are proved guilty - the innocent can, obviously, stay), illegal immigrants and the Olympics.

The government needs a kick up the arse. I don't want my taxes spent on a load of shit that no one needs or wants. I want them to sort out people who sponge off the system and get loads of benefits they don't deserve. I want them to sort out immigration, the NHS and possibly education. They need to give more power to Teachers and take it awau from the little bastards that cause hell in schools. Send them to the army - they will soon learn that back chatting causes them to be beasted to fuck. Something teachers should really be allowed to do.

I also do not want Gordon Brown to take over. I didn't vote for him. No one did. Blair was the person that was voted in. If he decides to stand down then we should have another vote. Gordon Brown would not win. Mind you, I would be more likely to vote for a duck than most of the politicians these days. I don't care if they did drugs at school or wear womens clothes at the weekend. I just do not have confidence in them to run a country. I don't have confidence in them to organise an orgy in a brothel for that matter.

And as for George Bush. Why do we continue to toady up to that overweight country? We have had more detahs caused by their friendly fire in Iraq than by, well I don't actually have any real figures so this is just opinion, rabid frizbees. We have families who have been left shattered by the deathes of children/ brothers/ husbands caused by American fire and the USA will not give these families the answeres they need to move on. So why do we continue to bend over for them. Get tough. If they wont give us answers as to why they need to kill their allies then why help them. There are other reasons to leave Iraq but this one I actually like. Fuck the Americans - they do the same to us everytime they open fire.

Ok. So this has turned in to a bit of a rant. There is plenty more here, just bubbling under the surface but I feel that I am getting a bit preachy.

The above is all my own thoughts. If they offend you, tough. If you don't like it nobody is forcing you to read it. That was your own doing. Take responsibility for your own life and leave me to get on with mine.
