I don't know what to say.

Days are hectic and blogspiration on the ebb just now. I am too busy wondering which air rifle with silencer and flashy sight to buy and how much rice to put under the stairs. The rifle needs to be light weight. Gobsmacked that the PM is bollocking on about revitalising the housing market, when that is going to be the least of everyone's worries before long.

Hopeless case that Gordo-sneer-bastard bloke Lils.

Utterly untrustworthy, and seing how bad everything is going to be by late summer, I really fear for those of us who are going to get hurt.

Please don't look at the TPA site as you'll see (as has Guido), how much all the sponging scum politicians are brazenly siphoning off, without as much as a by-your-leave!

Jesus Christ; I could do anything with that amount of expenses! This lot - and just as many Tories and the usual waster hangers-on, will love that scotch speaker bastard getting his odious Mrs out on a taxi freebie just to get his black pudding and oat cakes.

They are a grasping crowd of nobodies, and will get some real verbal soon - especially when the real s*** hits the fan after Crewe and Nantwich implodes on the disgusting Tammy Whinette...

Humphrys made out he was challenging Brown this morning but he still let the bastard lie.

It is too late, Scrobs. I have already seen it. Still scraping my jaw off the floor. Reading that is probably part of my problem.

Elby tells me that quangos cost 123billion a year, we didn't need them before, why do we need them now?

All this talk of "helping the consumer"..and "giving money to the taxpayer", "helping 22million families"...Sack 'em all!

If our economy is following the American economy then we are in deep deep doo doo. The pound is going to do a Zim.

The garden is over demanding just now; look for metaphor in growth and renewal and explosion of creation over stanislav acres but there is no metaphor or allegory or parable. These gangsters draw the joy even from life chasing itself.

Hedgerows and trees and orchard burst and erupt, almost overnight, extravagant as ever; willow walk pruned to stumps last Autumn now mocks the blade, climbing for the Sun; a thousand tulips in wave after brilliant wave, a forest of flaming rhubarb, serried ranks of garlic and onions and leeks; clumps of parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme, artfully ironic, besiege the kitchen door and the little dog bloke barks his head off at the birds and the kine in the adjacent fields, a little blonde lionheart. The walls, centuries old, bake themselves anew, hoarding the Sun's power. Here is the land of the Midnight Sun and for a time now day never ends, just wearies and fades a little, the wee, small hours now silver-lit, ghostly but undark.

But back in the hurly burly all is foul. What to post, yes; who to picket and reprove, who to mock, which windmill to charge, which keep to storm, from which sinecured jackanapes to wring some bleak, dark mirth in these grim times.

But it is all so fucking remorseless; we are so comprehensively preyed upon by a burgeoning parasite caste, often too revolting to dwell upon - Ed Balls, Dave Cameron, Boris Johnson, Jonathan Ross, Terry Wogan, Jeremy Paxman, Jesus fucking wept - ubiquitous and unstillable, clamouring, rancourous, for more, always for more.

I'll away, first thing, and plant some lavendar. And think about Molatov cocktails, the right decision for the long term interests of the British people.

love from stanislav

Blogstipation reigns at my place at the moment as well. Heading into winter over here. I have spent the last week chopping and then trying to light wet cassarina logs, have now moved onto the macadamia logs I laid up last year. Dark at 5.30 and down to 10 degrees celsius at night....

grumpy grandad said...

"..a forest of flaming rhubarb, ...


Perfect response for DC at next week's PMQs. Stan does it again!!!

Lilith said...

Oh Stanislav. At least I have your evocative prose to comfort me. It is extraordinary out there...friends that were about to move to Australia have changed their minds on the basis that West Country in May is the most beautiful place to be in the world. (I expect they will change their minds back come November.)

I am going to print up the TPA assessment and leave it in waiting rooms...

How can people describe Ed Balls as "brilliant"? Or "super intelligent?" I suspect Wogan and Ross will be amongst the first to beg for mercy.

Lavender is a superb idea Stan, as I have so many smelly things out there to soothe me but the Lavender got old and died and hasn't been replaced.

Lilith said...

Hey BB. Short days. Those buggers come around so quickly. I hope you are OK and still have the shirt on your back...Things WILL get better, for you at least.

And you may be in for a treat next year as My Girl has a plan to hit NZ....

Lilith said...

gg. We love Stan. :-)

fuchsia groan said...

I am stockpiling baked beans. There doesn't seem to be any good news in prospect for any of us. Despite working all the hours, there never seems to be anything to show for it all. If we vote the scum out, there is nothing better waiting in the wings. A mass public lynching of all politicians seems to be the only way forward. We all know it makes sense.

Philipa said...

Have you heard the latest - NuLabs plans to ban any child from entering the school system who hasn't had the MMR jab? Might be a good thing if you didn't get arrested for not sending your child for state conditioning.

killemallletgodsortemout said...

Hold up Lils!

Don't let these muppets grind you down. If you take them too seriously, they'll make you ill, and we don't want that, not with all the MRSA & C.Diff that's going on in the orspitals.

Whatever gummint we have, they are ALL scheming, self-serving, lying bastards. The best thing we could do would be to kill 'em all, let God sort 'em out.

I'll get me guillotine ready, shall I? One day, one fine day, I'll take one and put it up in Parliament Square. Wouldn't that bring a smile to you, lovely Lils?

Lilith said...

Excellent Fuchsia. Are you also working on a design for recovering methane? We will need all the alternative energy sources we can get.

I am earning more than I have ever earned and it is not enough. Well, it is, currently, for survival. But I was better off when I earned half what I do now 7 years ago!

I saw someone yesterday who told me his business (which is related to construction) is down 25% on last year.

At least we have rid ourselves of the television.

Lilith said...

Well Pip, that would have been my child excluded then. She had the original vaccine at 2 1/2, which made her ill, so I refused the booster. The practice manager was very irritated with me.

Lilith said...

You are quite right Killem, God will sort em all out in the end. But it is enough to make you ill and I suspect, frequently does. I know patients under 65 can get reasonable treatment within the NHS but every day I hear horror stories of involuntary euthanasia attempts by my local hospital so I think the elderly should be protected from the economic and political reality. If you know any pensioners with a doctor's appointment pending, you could do worse than to go with them as a witness and advocate.

Elby says he will be there (in Parliament square) with his beanie hat and knitting kneedles :-) You have made me smile already and often.

Lilith said...

Anecdotal evidence: to anyone out there thinking of giving their child the MMR vaccine.

After my daughter had the MMR she was listless for a day or so, as was her friend. She then became allergic to everything, and constantly had a runny/sneezy nose. Think Mr Sneeze. She got more frequent colds and low grade fevers which she found hard to throw off as she apparently lost the ability to sweat. This all went on until she was seven or so, and many homeopathic, osteopathic, herbal and acupuncture treatments later she is now just a bit sneezy.

What of her friend? She developed petit mal and is now on meds for life.

I know I can be the biggest harbinger of doom of the lot ...

Andrew Marr annoyed me on Jonathan Ross tonight "The good times couldn't go on forever" as though Nu Lab had nothing to do with wrecking what they'd inherited.

But here's a bit of a silver lining. In all things it's usually the optimists who turn out right - from nuclear annihilation to Mad Cow disease.

On the other hand I do think it a wise precaution to stockpile a couple of weeks worth of food just incase of shortages due to blockades and protests.

Baked beans are good for this - why do you think that's what they eat on I'm a Celebrity ?

Lilith said...

Stephen Glover doesn't seem to have read the TPA analysis, E-K. I think there is another word more appropriate than optimism?

I hate baked beans Kev. Maybe I won't last more than a week when the motherfuckers are lined up against the wall.

mutleythedog said...

There are other kinds of beans than baked to stockpile in tins. Also dried pulses such as barley and dried lentils and split peas - all very cheap and stock cubes. Canned tomatoes and canned fruit. Economy canned fruit can be as little as 9 pence a tin. Rice pudding, canned soup, very cheap dried fruit and dried soup, five pint, tea and coffee sugar. Batteries, candles, radio that works of batteries fire lighters, paraffin. Canned fish if there is any left....

Stop paying your bills there is no point...

Lilith said...

Thank you Mutley. I know you speak from experience and the recession/depression hit your household some time ago. (I hope your new job is going ok and the howler monkeys are not playing you up.) Sainsburys does 3 tins of beans in brine for £1 and they have a lot of varieties. We have a solar powered/wind up radio which is quite useful.

Philipa said...

Kev - 'amazing vibrancy'? Was he sat on his phone? As the rest of us just don't see it.

Philipa said...

And what about Kev as the answer to Wham? Yup I'd've fancied him but I can't say the same for George Micheal! Still like him on this track though: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0iA5412cXLE
Paula with the same beard and... you've got to get Kev a sharp grey suit, black shirt.... ok I'll shut up - he might be better naked but I'll leave that to you and dream of a philip treacy hat.

Daisy said...

i understand that lilith...i sometimes get overwhelmed by thinking about it all...then i just stop thinking about anything and just move through the day...btw if you need help on the rifle thing i have some shotguns here and a few extra...and am still a pretty fair shot...i'll take care of your problems for you :)

Lilith said...

Pip, My Girl tells me that she sat on Philip Treacy's knee unwittingly, and when she realised who he was she demanded he make her a hat!.. It was at a wedding where there was a lot of champagne, a few chairs and no food..

Lilith said...

Daisy, that is the only way just now. With the help of lists...

I love the idea that you have guns...you are just a little too far away...

electro-kevin said...

For lack of blogspiration you cerainly got some interesting responses here, Lilith.

Philipa said...

I'd love a Philip Treacy hat :-)

Lilith said...

Yes, Kev, amazing isn't it :-))

Pip, so would My Girl :-)

Tuscan Tony said...

Not a gun person per se but snatched the following air rifle from under Nick, my gamekeeeper friend's nose whilst living in W Sussex (godfather of no. 1 son). He was mightily ticked off as he had sent his underkeeper to bid, and said fellow had not followed instructions, well, anyway, hewre it is:

Weihrauch Model HW35

It is an awesome weapon - Nick rates it better than a .410 shotgun.

Scroblene said...

Lils - come to Tenterden...;0)

You're in it!

Come on Gal, I've been trying to get you out all this time eh...!

%0)

Old Holborn - bitter and twisted said...

Weihrauch HW57 with telescopic sights.

I sleep with a loaded one under the bed, happy in the knowledge that should a grateful immigrant or feral youth wander across my landing at 3am, it will dispatch them to a "better place" with the minimum of fuss
