Mother Strikes

by duncanr

Is your house a ‘tip’?

Are you worn out trying to keep a clean house when no-one else lifts a finger to help?

Do your kids leave dirty crocks piled up in the sink (assuming they get that far) or on the floor, along with discarded clothes they’re too lazy to hang in the closet or put in the washbasket?

Does no-one lend a hand to keep the house clean and tidy, wash or iron clothes, cook meals ?

Time you did what Jessica Stilwell did – pour yourself a glass of wine, sit down, put your feet up and . . .

Justice – South Africa Style

by duncanr

“Lonmin” is the world’s third largest producer of platinum. Workers at the South African mine have been on strike for better wages and conditions.

On Aug 16, South African police shot dead 34 miners during a violent demonstration and arrested 270 others.

No police officer has yet been charged with any offense. Instead, the 270 miners arrested have been charged with the murder of their comrades. I guess you need to be South African to understand that logic !

Panic at the Pumps

by duncanr

I put £20 of unleaded in my tank every Saturday morning – that generally is enough to see me through the week

Yesterday morning, however, I noticed I was getting dangerously low – the result of a trip to Tamworth last weekend for a party.

No matter, I thought. I’ll fill up on the way home from work

It was a good plan but . . .

Spanish Bankers forced to become Wankers

by duncanr

Now this is a tack the UK Chancellor might want to consider as a way to encourage Bankers to lend more money to businesses !

High-Class prostitutes in Spain have ceased to accept ‘deposits’ from bankers until they extend more credit to families and businesses

Some Bankers denied their bit of nookie have tried to get round the hookers ban by masquerading as architects or engineers but as one prostitute said –

‘they’re not fooling anyone’ because ‘It has been many years since these professionals could afford rates that start from €300 per hour

P.S. some folk (including me) think this story a hoax but would be nice if bankers realyy were getting shafted, or not, as in this case

Industrial relations

by NobblySan

It’s not only BA cabin staff, and most of the public sector unions who are considering industrial action; Jihadis are feeling the pinch as well, and want to do something about it….

My Dad’s bigger than your Dad!

by NobblySan

My strike’s working – naaah naaah nah naaah naaah!

Oh no it’s not! Our planes are still flying!

They’re my perks and I’m taking them home with me!

‘S not fair! Want perks! Mum…. he’s taken our perks.

Well don’t talk to him again dear, until he gives them back. Now run along back to the picket line.

We’re gonna get our mates on you!

Ooo…I’m scared! Anyway we’ve got mates as well, and they’re harder than your mates!

For fuck’s sake!

Grow up the lot of you – you’re fucking pathetic.

I’m not just referring to BA and UNITE here; Brown, Cameron and your respective press machines also need to cut the unseemly shit. You’re taking the electorate to be a bunch of gullible fools who can be patronised into voting for you based on this issue…. and you’re so fucking misguided it almost defies belief.
