Hello friends, a warm welcome to my rants page.
Everyone likes a good gripe nowadays, if it isn't about the weather its about work or something else, we just cannot help ourselves, we often feel good after a good rant.
I created this blog to "let off steam" rather than shout abuse or hit walls lol.
I would just like to remind you that the writing here is strictly MY opinion and there will be no mentions of names etc except when I am ranting about the Government.
Everyone has their own opinion, and thats how it should be, this is a blog merely based on mine.

Happy reading,



Hi folks, you good? nice to be back, today I want to rant about "cold calling"
What is cold calling?
It is when a company finds your home or mobile number and calls you to try and either sell you something or alert you to the fact you may be due money from someone or another.
While I am aware that we all have to earn bread and butter to survive I think that these companies can easily make your life a misery by repetitive calling, even when you tell them you are not interested, they will not give up and will often call you two or three times a week?
Imagine your sitting there in the comfort of your own home, your about to eat after a hard days work, the phone rings, you think its family or friends, when you pick it up its a "cold caller" how annoying, It puts you in a bad mood and your dinner is getting cold.
I have had a few even as we speak, and each time I politely told them not to call me again, as I have not had an accident at work in the last 5 years or been in a c…


Hi friends, hope you are well.
Today I want to talk about retail, we all shop, we all have to eat, we all have to queue now and again and although sometimes its annoying its just the norm.
I have worked in retail for 2 large supermarket companies for 7 years and although they are slightly different in working practices, they are all the same when it comes to customers.
If I go to a shop and there is a queue, I will wait patiently until someone is available to serve me, without any drama, however some customers make it their aim to upset you and make you feel like shit, because either they are ignorant, or plain nasty.
Everyone in retail will agree, we all try our hardest, being paid a minimum wage you have to smile and make the customer feel they are worthy.
I feel that some people deliberately go out of their way to make your day a nightmare, customers who are on their mobile phone while you are serving them is one example, another is a customer coming to the tills you start the transacti…


Hi folks, hope you are all well,
So its come to this, sending missiles into Syria, by the British, American, and French Governments, all because a Tyrant thinks he can just send chemical weapons everywhere at the drop of a hat and pretend there wont be any reprisals, how the hell can anyone send chemical weapons to kill their own people? I am baffled by this, I can understand sending chemical weapons to another country or enemy but not to wipe out your own people?
Over the years too many tyrants have tried to quash their own people and although the results have been horrifying they have eventually been put to task.
I think Russia will retaliate in some way, they have to be seen as a power that will not stand back whilst its allies are bombed.
This all came about because chemical weapons were also sent to the UK, the fact no one will admit to it disguises guilt.
I am still puzzled why Russia would want to kill 2 of its citizens in another Country, and come to think of it, why was the guy an…


Are we turning into the USA or not, I'm not saying thats bad but we are sharing similar cultures these days, and one thing we share is the care and welfare of obesity, common in a lot of countries.
The UK like many other places in the World has its share of obesity, some more than others.
It isn't nice, but lets not say that ALL people who suffer with obesity, are guzzlers of food, because a lot of  people its an illness they cannot help.
In the UK, the Government have decided to take action against companies that fail to comply with sugar in their products and have placed a tax on sugary drinks with immediate effect.
I ask you who will suffer this tax, the companies? no, the Government, no, it will as always hurt the poor people of this Society as always.
The companies will merely increase the price of a sugary drink so they will not lose anything.
I am not saying taxing sugary drinks is a bad thing, but so you think this will stop with a tax?
I work in retail and can safely say the…


Hey folks, isn't it nice to see the lighter nights, UK. the feeling is uplifting as we don't have to close the curtains at 5pm and it gets lighter and cheerier at night.
The trees are budding and it seems winter is behind us, well for now anyway.
Its a nice feeling when you take your dog for a walk and its still sunny after 6pm lol.
I hope we have a great summer. Worldwide.

Hi friends, hope you are all well, me again with yet another rant, this time its about the Ruskies.
I opened my email this morning to find an email from Tumblr, weird, I thought at the time, and I wasn't fully awake so I just glanced at it, it appears I have liked a post from someone who was working for the IRA. ? eh, who the hell are they? I have not got a clue, and why would I ? I use tumblr yes, but rarely give a second thought to what I am reading or passing on? The Russians could have infiltrated my whole account for all I know, well lets face it there are no secrets in this platform.
I believe reading the news that they influenced the voting on the US presidency? so what has that got to do with me as I live in the UK. so I cant even vote let alone bother who is going to be the President of the USA.
Whats happening with Russia? why are they always interfering with other countries? off course they always deny such things but I am now wondering what else are they infiltrating?



You turn on Facebook and what is the first thing you see, some sicko being cruel to animals just for kicks, why? it makes me sick to the stomach.
How can people be like that, if they can do this to defenceless animals what do you think they could do to humans?
I wish I could submit the horror to them as they inflict it on Animals for no reason.
It has come to the stage were if I see this sort of thing I delete it immediately, as it upsets me for several days.
This is I suppose brushing it under the carpet, but what the hell do these people gain?
Animals are not put on this planet to be abused, yes we kill them to eat, yes thats a necessity but how can people be so cruel towards domestic pets who only show love and companionship.
I would love to get my hands on these people for  5 minutes and torture them to death and ask them how they feel about being abused.

Please be kind to animals, they only want love..

We all do it, we buy stuff, we don't really need and yet we cannot do without it, we shop and we shop, and still we don't really need half of the things we buy.
I think behind the purchases lies a need for excitement, like bidding on an auction site and bidding more and more just because you can. I think the companies draw us in, and before we know it we are hooked, E bay is a classic example, the last second bid you put in could be the bid that wins, sometimes this is true, other times someone has got in there first, and when you don't win the item, you feel, drained and let down ring any bells?
I think the secret of buying is when you purchase something, throw out something, that way you have newer items and don't keep the old ones, this isn't easy as you often try to sell on the old stuff but never get your money back because people want things cheap, or free.
I feel I could easily be a hoarder, its easy to get caught up in the disease, the way you recognise your a…


Hi folks, hope you are all well ...

As the economy starts to settle down and the country looks more prosperous, why oh why do we have to demoralize?
I understand there are some people who take the piss, people who simply do not want to work, people who are stuck in a rut and can not see any way out, but there are some genuine people among them who want to work but can not get a chance.
5 hours. The jobs are not as good as they are now a day.
With the sanctions come hardship and if you are on your own you have no one to turn to, the rent still has to be paid, and so do the bills, but the government does not care what you want cut off.
Luckily some people are generous, they do not want to see anyone, they want to help out as much as they can within their means.
It is about time to break away from the chancers and the ends of the culture.

I am very lucky, lucky in the respect that outside my front door I am surrounded by beautiful country side, the beauty is boundless and never ending, lovely trees and foliage cover a huge area of ground and the walkways are astounding, but sadly you still get morons who cannot look after it.
Going on a nice walk in the country, you realise just how lucky we are that Mother nature has created such beauty, not just for us humans but for the wildlife living off the land,
It is very sad that you walk in a public walkway with your pooch and come across a lot of litter and mainly its beer cans or wine bottles or the occasional pet owner who decided to throw his dogs bagged shit in a bush or on the walkway, so what was the point of picking it up, if you were just going to throw the entire contents in a bush or on the walkway?
Why are people so sad, and downright ignorant to the fact that bottles, cans and bags of dogs shit do not disintegrate for all time and are left defacing the land?
I have a…


HI folks, been a while, hope you are well, been settling into my new home so been very busy, well its nice to be back, today I would like to talk about PRIVATE RENTING.

When I decided to pack up and come down to England, I knew I would have to rent privately, unlike Scotland, it is ver near impossible to get a council home unless you are homeless or have medical reasons, and when I say medical reasons, I am talking about one foot in the grave lol.

Everyone knows in this Country there is a shortage of housing, the homeless figures are astronomical, there are people who prefer to live on the streets and wouldn't know what to do, or couldn't cope if they got a place to live, that is their choice and it should be respected, however there are people who cannot for love nor money get a council or housing association home for love nor money.

So I moved down here, my daughters kindly sought a rental home for me so I could move down to be with them, they chose a lovely house, 1 bedroom in…


Hi folks, hope you are well, I have been moving home so couldn't get to my blogs of late but I am back.
I want to talk about a harrowing video I watched on Facebook, which not only turned my stomach but brought a tear to my eye.

The video was of a young girl, who had escaped from North Korea through the Gobi desert with her friends. to safety and freedom.
Can you imagine the will power and determination you would need to take on such a journey? The danger is beyond human expectation, but you will do anything to escape tyranny.

The young girl spoke out on a platform, informing the World what it is like to live in North Korea.
When she systematically went through the horrors of a regime hell bent on tyranny it was sad, we take for granted in our democracies everything we have, and yet we still complain, we complain about silly, immaterial issues and we don't know how damn lucky we are.

She told us about life in North Korea, she told us of people being murdered for no reason, she told …


So friends, we are finally here, today is the day were everyone gets a chance to vote for the Party they think will be able to lead our Country out of brexit, whilst dealing with the everyday politics of the UK.
It will not be easy for whomever gets elected as these times are pretty rough, they are rough because we are being  attacked almost every month from extremists who are doing their level best to destroy a Country that has survived all sorts of despots and fanatics.
I am not happy of the fact that the latest set of inhuman scum were alerted to Police some Years ago and nothing was done, so one asks oneself, if they had been detained would the poor people who were murdered in London and Manchester be still alive?
There is supposed to be an enquiry but how does that help the families who have lost loved ones, when it may have been prevented.
I have no idea who will win the General Election, the results will be broadcast as they come in tonight all over British television.
Whomever wins…


Hello folks, how are you? well we have seen a few debates so far on the coming General Election, so who do you fancy?
For many Years I voted Labour but after hearing today's manifesto from Labour its highly unlikely I will be voting for them.
Why? It was all going so well until Jeremy Corbyn decided to have a Free run of Migrants into the UK, for  me thats a no no.
This Country is struggling to make ends meet, the people of Great Britain cannot find work as it is, cannot get a home, cannot get their kids into school, cannot make ends meet, and this jumped up weirdo decides that free movement is a good thing? yes its a good thing for skilled workers, but will it stop there? don't think so, and before anyone gets their knickers in a twist I know the Health service would crumble without migrant workers, but we need to draw the line somewhere.
This has put me right off Labour and even if I wanted to waste my vote on UKIP, I would rather do that than let a Government open the flood gat…


Hi friends, me again, hope you are well, today has been beautiful, the sun has been shining most of the day, and the warmth has been welcoming, In the United Kingdom we are always thankful for nice weather lol.
Today folks I want to discuss thefts, from our local area, thefts that have left poor working class families without tools to work, and if they don't have tools they cannot do their job.
These days everyone is struggling to make ends meet, we are in the middle of Austerity, money is tight, money is scarce, we can barely pay our rent and bills.
To steal from someone else's property absolutely disgusts me, its like someone walking into your house without an invitation, you feel  vulnerable and scared, so why is it any different having you're vehicle broken into a tools stolen?
The people who carry out these thefts are clever, they pick quiet streets were ordinary folks are either in bed or settled in for the night with the blinds closed, these thieves are opportune, and a…


So folks here we are again, we are coming up to another General election, what have the parties fighting for our vote have to offer?
Well so far as per usual the Tories are only thinking of the rich and as per usual to hell with the poor, the poor who keep the Country going by working till they drop.
The latest thing on the Tory manifesto is that anyone who needs to go into care will be allowed to keep up to 100,000 pounds of their assets before they have to pay for their own care, so how long do they think 100,000 pounds is going to last when your ushered into a care home? not long by all accounts as it costs a fortune for care?
But they think this is good, well friends they are the only ones, but what is the alternative? Labour promises to end hardship for the poor, pump billions into the NHS, make the higher tax earners pay more and perhaps put a penny or two on to the tax we pay.
I have been labour through and through my whole working life, but things changed when Labour turned out to…


For the life of me I am puzzled, In this neck of the woods, a supposed affluent area, were people want to retire, were people think they are safe, but are they really?
Lately all you read on Facebook, is someone's van being broken into, someone's motorbike stolen, someone's house being burgled, or worse someone going around stealing animals?
Almost daily you read about one of the above, and it is now getting to the worrying stages.
A young lad had his bicycle stolen this very day? 
What kind of people are we living with? what kind of people steal from a tradesman, steal his tools out of his van, when they know full well its his/her livelihood?
The answer of course is desperate people or people who just don't care about others.
Many Years ago you could actually go out of your house and leave the door open, no one dreamed of stealing from you, people were more respectful, people were not so desperate.
Why are people desperate? sadly drugs plays a major part in desperation, need…


Hi friends.

Today I would like to talk about Families. Gone are the days when family meant family and sticking by each other. In the early days of the 60,s and 70,s you looked after each other, you were a family unit, lo betide anyone who got in the way of family, or tried to hurt them, it is certainly changed days.
I am speaking in general as opposed to personally, as I watch things going on around me it is kinda sad, sad, that there are so many families split, never speaking to each other, never making that effort.
I also think its incredible how sons and daughters do not speak to their mum just because something happened outwith the Mothers control many Years ago, it is really, sad that they cannot forgive and forget and move on.
When you fall out with a friend, you may not speak to them for a wee while, or if it is serious ever again, but nine times out of ten all is forgiven and you become pals again, maybe not as close but pals nevertheless.
It only takes one person to make the move,…


Hi folks, I have just had the most traumatic few days I have had in a long time.
I was working away last night, and I got a private Facebook message from a friend and Neighbour.
A couple of days before that, I purchased 2 meat bones out of a famous cheap shop, I am sure you can guess, Poundland.
I bought one for my dog and another one for my neighbours dog, I have been buying these type of bones in Poundland for years and not once have I had any issues, I have even bought them for my daughters dogs and they were ok.
At the back of my mind I always thought cooked bones were better for your dog than raw bones, alas my friend told me this is not the case, cooked bones splinter easily and can cause a lot of damage to a dog, especially if that dog will eat the whole thing.
The message I received made me sick, I was told that my neighbours dog was rushed into the vet suffering from splinters in her abdomen, gut and tummy, I was devastated.
The instructions on the packet said it was quite safe for…


Surprise Surprise Theresa May has called for a General Election, why? because she knows she will win hands down, as there are no other parties strong enough to stand up to the Tories, certainly not Labour. Jeremy Corbyn is a joke and will never make the Prime Minister of this or any other Country, I am not saying it is only down to him, but Labour need a strong Leader and in my opinion he isnt it. I was brought up working class, my mum and dad voted labour most of their lives, when Labour actually stood for something, had Morals, and looked after the people. In the heady days of the 70's Labour dominated because of the Trade Unions, every Organisation feared the Unions, Productivity suffered, but the rights of workers were back then the forefront of Unions and the Labour Party, these days I am not sure what Labour stands for. So whats the alternative? in my opinion there isn't one, wish there was but sadly no party is strong enough to go against the Tories, even although Tory mean…


I do not know if you have watched the film? I have watched it twice and each time I watch it not only do I shed a tear but I become very angry quickly.
I cannot remember if this film was factual, I mean the story of the two boys befriending each other, one a German boy the other a Jewish boy, however it doesn't really matter because a scenario probably existed during the second World war.
I don't know why I watch these movies, it kinda draws me in to a point were I say thank the Lord I wasn't born in those days, naturally it did not apply to Brits, but the awful degradation and criminal murder of a people actually hits the spot as far as I am concerned.
For the love of me to this day I cannot understand why they got away with the mass murders? surely intelligence must have come from somewhere just exactly what they were doing? why was there no intervention?
I believe I read once that the Brits did bomb one or two camps, but never really concentrated on them as they were more i…


In an uncertain age when it isn't safe to go anywhere nowadays, what do we do? do we allow these terrorists to Govern our life? do we sit at home 24 hours a day, scared to go out? The answer is NO. Why should we be scared to go out, why should we be terrified to go on holiday in the fear of being shot, knifed or blown up? It is getting beyond a joke now, when Powers think they have the right to kill innocent people by sending one of the worst destroyers of humanity, a chemical weapon. It is absolutely disgusting that a Country can even think about this let alone take action, thousands of innocent people were affected by the chemical weapon, which also killed many children? children? what have they done? Mr Trump is getting a lot of bad press for taking action against a Country who had the voracity to use chemical weapons and it makes me sick to the stomach that no one before Trump thought about retaliation. I am delighted that Mr Trump had the guts to face up to these butchers even tho…


Hi folks, hello again, hope you are good, well finally our Government has triggered article 50, sounds like a bomb or something lol, its about time in my humble opinion, we will get through this and even though it will still take Years, it is what the majority of the Public wanted, and despite all the negativity from the remainders, the leavers won the day. It was all a bit of a joke, we had a vote, the decision was we were leaving, however some politicians tried their level best to reverse the decision, so did they want to keep voting until the remainders won? hmm that's not democracy, and everyone knows it, I will give our Prime Minister her due, she wasn't having it and made sure the decision was met as per the voting public. So what happens next? I don't think anyone knows, from top Politicians to the General Public. It is believed that the UK will have to pay between 15 and 50 billion pounds in fees for leaving the EU were that figure comes from is beyond me. Many people …
