    New Safety (speed) Camera on A465 Belmont Road Hereford

    It is what it is and you all know what it is. A cash generating machine placed in this particular place for no other reason than to make some money for them to spend. And once the Safer Roads Partnership meet again at Plough Lane, and they will, they'll be discussing the installation of other cash collecting cameras to be installed across the City that'll all be dressed up in a cleverly spun corporate message, 'we want to keep you safe'. Course, once some fool pops a blag bin bag over its lens or even paint sprays the accursed thing, we'll all be howling, 'how dare they do this to our speed camera' but quietly thinking, 'shame on me. I'm quite happy to see someone fighting back against the Council Spending Machine!
  2. Whilst I 'get' that many of us no longer care whether or not we stay or leave the Union, it shouldn't stop people at least thinking a little about the simple and straightforward economics that drive this particular business who now bemoan their plight and have become alarmed that the wealth creation model that's thus far created them wealth may be coming to an end. This business employs around 1400 people from continental Europe. Whether they are permanently resident in Herefordshire or seasonal, there is a cost to maintaining all of them in the County and that cost does not fall upon the shoulders of this particular business. It falls upon you and I. The indigenous tax and rate payers who fund the public services. The civic responsibilities that this business have, and many many more like them, is to provide a business product and to sell it and at the same time providing the work force with a safe working environment, training and to deduct tax and national insurance contributions. And that's it. Nothing more. Other than the business paying its taxes to the exchequer and complying with the demands of its local authority, there is nothing more required of them to pay and maintain their workforce. I repeat, the entire burden of financial responsibility lands on us the general public. And it doesn't come cheap! When you consider that 800,000 EU migrant children are in education in Britain and the cost to the exchequer is around 4.6 billion pounds, surely you can grasp that the Well of cheap labour isn't as fair as one might first think. Consider the cost to your local Doctors Surgery, the Hospital, the Council and all the other free public services! You are paying for all of this. The business that's subject to this discussion isn't. It's down to us! Quite simply, in an economic nutshell, the general public subsidise this workforce of cheap labour by paying to maintain its workforce of 1400 people. You can't just deposit 1400 people and not think that there isn't a cost. Yes, the workforce pay their taxes and national insurance contributions, but when you consider their low wage and our future pension liabilities that'll hit Britain in the next two or three decades, you've gotta ask yourselves, 'was it all worth it'. Now we're told that China could be the preferred destination. Why? Cheap labour. Even cheaper labour and the promise of bigger profits. Sadly in this era of modernity where British creativity has got our society to where it is today after the horrors of World War2 , the EU, our Government and the ideology of Big Business and global capitalism, have managed to turn the clock backwards to a time where grafting, sweating and working like stink for a low wage out trumps the creativity and genius of a bright young mind. Give me creativity every time! Rather that than relying on some poor desperate world citizen being forced to fly, drive or sail to a place where their creativity and intelligence is of no consequence. Seems to me the global message is, give us your young, your fittest and your finest physical specimens and we'll work them hard and ready them for World War3 where they'll be fit and ready to be first up and on the front line to face our enemy that's as yet to be clearly identified by the European Commission.
  3. Elucidate you say Martin. I'm not sure I or anyone else can explain clearly just how fu.cked up its all become. But here goes! Think of Tony Johnson, John Jarvis, Pat Morgan and all the other local political lightweight idiots that got us all to pay nigh on forty million quid for a road less than half a mile long, multiply that idiocy by a factor of fifty and everyone should be halfway to understanding just how useless this current Governments Cabinet really are. I've come to the conclusion there is absolutely no difference in ability between Members of Parliament and County Councillors. If there is, it's because some are either less ugly than others or they managed through skillful guile to secrete the obvious fact that they were completely thick and should never be allowed anywhere near someone else's ten pound note. And as for this capitalist money grabbing chancer who's thinking about moving his wealth generating business to China because he's worried that his source of slave/cheap labour is about to run dry, I hope he moves his seedlings to the Orient and when he's successfully caused the seeds to germinate, the fruit they bear either rot on the vine or become infested with black fly or aphids.

    Brexit: If you agree sign this petition

    Martin, if those figures are correct it confirms to me that our people are indeed stupid and highly susceptible to dictatorship. It's desperately despairing to watch our people ignoring the warning signs that tell me we are in a big hole of trouble and have no interest in discovering how deep our hole has become. As for your interest in our future military role of strategic importance, it's not a short hop of thought to imagine NATO crumbling because parts of Europe refuse to pay their way and support the Americans and then the EU Commission forming their own EU Army and allowing its forces to be directed by German leadership. Fanciful thinking? Not really. Once the ability of NATO diminishes to be replaced by the ideology of the EU, any restraints applied to Germany during 45/46 will no longer be applicable. German defence spending will increase, their power will grow and despite the WW2 understandings that bind Germany to non aggression, those ties will slowly loosen or disappear, and without anyone's asking or NATO control or leadership, the Germans, followed by their poodles France, will begin for a third time their quest to win back the glory that has eluded the pair of them for over two centuries. As for Germany and it's people, they simply cannot help themselves. They have to orchestrate. They have to meddle. They have to organise and they have to control and dominate. It's their nature and there seems to be little appetite to stop it before all control of them is lost and once again we will be faced with finding solutions to 21st century problems caused by Germany and it's quest for domination.

    Brexit: If you agree sign this petition

    I've signed it Martin but it is really a pointless excercise. Our wonderful Vote To Leave wasn't supposed to have happened and so, because 'they' don't want it to happen, it will not happen. Not in the way we wanted. The EU Commission, our members of parliament, our ruling elite and big business want their Empire to continue and so we will continue to be ruled by German arms length control, we will continue to absorb the millions of people generated by Free Movement Of People and we will eventually, once we've been smashed, crushed and generally given a good kicking from our continental friends, reapply for new membership of the EU. Sadly, as has been pointed out by a particularly nasty MEP who's a slavish follower of Verhofstadt, we will be forced to adopt the Euro currency and surrender much much more to please our political masters. It's gone and the petition is a last ditch excercise in pointless futility. Every single Empire in human history, including the British Empire and the European Union rely upon only two single things. A source of cheap labour, which at present is generated from the East of the Continent and the stupidity of the people who are required not to think for themselves. As for the future, once the current source of cheap labour runs dry,,,, they'll speedily admit three or four other poor nations, get them to move West or East, depending upon who's got the wealth then and they'll become the new source of cheap labour. Course, once they run out of poverty stricken countries who are prepared to graft like stink for low wages there'll only be one available option Martin!!! That's right,,,,Russia! They'll continue their expansionistic policies, provoke Russia, create a regional conflict, have a war, hopefully win, liberate the Russians who never ever wanted a war in the first place and get them to become Europes last source of cheap labour. Thereafter, once we are all fu.ck.ed up and Europe is ruined, all the other member states will get together and conclude, 'Britain was right to Vote Leave'!

    More Shop Raids in Hereford and Ross

    The problem is Rag, they're not the idiots. It's us and the investigative teams who are tasked to investigate these offences. These idiots my good old friend know that they're going to get a 'knock' every so often and they're more than happy to lose a stash now and then. They couldn't care less! The approach to this problem is all wrong. It's no different to the Police standing in HighTown searching a few kids and bagging up a few blimps of resin and then proclaiming that 'we're fighting back against the importation of huge loads of Cannabis.' It's simply low hanging fruit and unfortunately each time they pick a bit off and conduct one single operation the cost to the public is somewhere in the region of forty thousand quid. Instead of wasting their time and our money going round and round in a pointless cycle they should climb the ladder, recruit a good grass and treat it for what it is, organised crime, and do some some long term surveillance to develop some conspiracy charges and hit someone somewhere near the top of the pyramid. As things stand, I'd sooner see them do buggar all than continue doing something that they'd probably readily acknowledge has been a complete waste of time. What they're doing is a pointless excercise in futility!

    Stop Talking About The War!

    When the lessons of history are ignored and the European continent slides ever closer to German domination of all its citizens, it's very hard not to talk about the war. After the cessation of hostilities of World War 2, the British and the Americans ensured that every country affected by German aggression waved their right for Reperation Damages that quickly resulted in Germany becoming able to develop into the European Economic Super Power that it is today. As early as 1960, only fifteen years after the conflict, Germany began its economic domination of Europe and it was all achieved because Britain and America paid for it and small countries like Poland and Greece were ignored. Without a single shot fired and without one act of aggression Germany has become the ruler of Europe and we are destined to repeat historical mistakes in allowing it to happen again. The mistake thats created German domination of Europe is all based upon a political decision made in 1945/46 that concluded that The Versailles Treaty of World War 1 was harsh upon Germany and it's people, and post World War2 the allies would ensure that Germany would be relieved of the burden of its shame to avoid a third German act of European aggression. It was all done with language. The War very quickly became the responsibility of the Nazis. The German people very quickly became the victims of the Nazis and over time Germany and it's people were moreorless exonerated from any responsibility because it was all the fault of the Nazis. Now to my point......that rejects the European Brexit Commission and German political leaders who say we should stop talking about the war. Recently, the Polish Government are introducing legislation that'll make it a custodial offence for anyone to refer to the Holocaust Death Camps as 'Poland or Polish Death Camps'. For decades since the passing of the Nazis it's become normality for these terrible places to be referred to as Polish Death Camps. Because of political language designed to be gentle toward Germany and it's people, these camps have never ever been referred to as German Death Camps. That shameful burden and cruel unjust label is one now carried by the people of Poland and quite rightly, despite objections from Israel, Germany and the EU commission, the Polish people no longer wish to carry the shame that belongs to the Nazis and the German people. Why shouldn't Poland pursue this aim? They didn't build the camps, they didn't exterminate millions of Jewish people. The only reasons they are called Polish Death Camps is because of political language and a strategic and geographical decision made by the German Armed Forces to build these evil places in a location that was far away from German conurbations and not to distant into the east of the continent. Because of easy established rail and transport links the German Reich picked Poland and that was that. Now, over time, they've become The Polish Death Camps and the people of Poland should be supported and not accused of trying to dilute the story of the Holocaust. The story of the Holocaust will never be lost. Neither will their geographic locations in Poland and other neighbouring countries. Everyone will forever know where these atrocities took place but it is now very wrong that Poland or Polish people should take on the ownership of these terrible places. The ownership belongs to The Nazis and the Germans and this is where the ownership belongs. With one word from Germany the British people would receive a kinder and better Brexit. One signal from Angela Merkel and she'd be able to call the attack dogs off the Polish and all the other member states who are clinging onto their sovereignty. And with just one single thought for the people of Greece, who are now essentially owned and run by German financiers, the Greek people could once again claim back their sovereignty and begin to live their lives free of German influence. Stop talking about the war! How can you?

    Housing Plans - Keepmoat Appointed As Preferred Bidder

    The Preferred Bidder! Carillon were often the preferred bidder and companies like Keepmoat will continue to be the preferred bidder until they inevitably overstretch themselves, run up massive debts to the little self employed guys, have a couple of hundred thousand pounds worth of assets left on their balance sheet and then go belly up leaving everyone scratching their heads wandering why they were appointed the preferred bidder over and over again. It's ridiculous and it'll continue this way because those at the helm are thick!

    Man Charged with Murder Appears in Court

    Well, according to my sources, and granted I have to get them blind drunk first before they tell me what they know, the notion that the lad acted solely on impulse because of mental health issues could be a little misleading. Elements of premeditation, namely the earlier purchase of a knife and a rope from a City Store before the criminal act was carried out suggest some thought or planning went into this terrible event. The rope? To hang the family cat!
  10. My God! The Cheeky Girls. Good grief! Well I'm not going. I couldn't risk it. The moment these two Transylvanian beauties started gifting my ears,that God equipped me with to hear, and began their song, 'We Are The Cheeky Girls, I'd just as likely get up, mount the stage and throttle the pair of them until life became extinct. Bloody 'We Are The Cheeky Girls'! It's down there in the depths of popular European music dross with Paper bloody Lace's, Billy Don't Be A Hero'. It's the sort of song that you hum in your head. There's no getting rid of it.

    BBC Question Time to broadcast from Hereford

    Martin, The high point for me was those few painful moments when the screen went black, transmission was halted and for a brief few moments in time it crossed my mind that their was a God and the Council had inadvertently made a decision many years ago to build a terrestrial transmitter upon an unstable marshy bog and the whole structure had succumbed to gravity and fallen bloody down. Course, the real low point was when the programme actually began quickly confirming to me that nobody in that audience voted to leave the European Union and whatever our current woes, particularly within the NHS, it was all the fault of the Tories and nothing to do with successive governments who've all helped to buggar it all up. A complete waste of time. The only happy news is, after fifteen years of people like us moaning about the inequities of PFI, the politicians are now openly saying, 'it's all been a terrible mistake'. Other than that, and we didn't have a streaker or a death amongst the audience, I can't recall anything that made me think it was a good idea to watch the bloody programme.

    BBC Question Time to broadcast from Hereford

    I got my email yesterday saying I didn't make the final cut. This, despite me saying I was a unidexter with a clubbed foot, undergoing a gender realignment, very keen to pay my TV Licence and a committed lover of the European Union, I'm out with the rest of you watching the box.

    Illegal Tobacco Seized During Multi Agency Task Force

    For the scale of the problem that's here in Hereford and the highly expensive costs associated with just one warrant that generates so much time and money placed upon limited resources, what's the bloody point? Let it be. It's not going to be stopped until they come at the problem from another way. Either close these shops down or leave them be and let them get on with it. It's all a waste of time and money. As an aside,,,,The Hereford Harm Reduction Unit! What a load of boll.ock.s! It's typical of the 'nowadays'. Give something an exciting, interesting or even an exotic name and it's all supposed to be great and wonderful. It's a load rubbish cobbled together by people unable to think in straight lines.

    A49 Dinmore Hill Road Closed in Both Directions

    Poor lad! Course, for those of you familiar with Dinmore Hill, the dual carriageway at Wellington and Moreton on Lugg, whilst negotiating these areas you'll be met by the results of chaotic thinking dreamt up around a table at The Safer Roads Partnership at Plough Lane that now make a fatality more likely than it was before. There'll be red paint on the road leading up toward the hazard, yellow paint, white paint, white lines, white towing in arrows, hatch markings, signs saying this, signs saying that, a cluster of directive boards alerting you to react and then, realising that they've bombarded you with rubbish to clutter your mind and affect your decision making, if your luck you can quickly realise that you've run out of road during an overtaking manoeuvre, cause you to brake sharply because of panic and then, if your fortunate, manage to avoid harms way and not collide with something. These three locations were bad accident black spots before the 'suits' went to work. Now, they're far worse. They've somehow managed to take the Southbound dual carriageway at Wellmgton, a place where you could once overtake a number of slow movers and turn it into a death trap because of red paint, white paint, hatch markings, towing in arrows and signs that confirm to me that those who sit at the table of The Safer Roads Partnerships are thick, dull and idiotic thinkers who are unable to think a problem through without concluding, 'let's paint the road and put up some signs'.

    Herefordshire Council Tax Expected to Rise 4.9%

    A long while back I placed an FOI to the Council asking them what proactive steps they'd taken to discover the 'hidden population' of our County. To actually learn what the true figures are that are living here but not paying any Council Tax you'd think would be essential to all our public services so that they could approach this issue and begin to think and plan strategically for the now and for the future. I learned, not unsurprisingly, that the information they totally rely upon is that which is gleaned from the Census. Despite the era of Partnerships, where everyone is able to share information with one another, and I have in mind individual registrations with Doctor Surgeries, our local public agents have not done as Malaga in Spain have done. Exchange information, collate their findings to discover their hidden population. In Malaga, Spain they've recently discovered that their regional population, which they themselves have called their hidden population, is over half a million higher than their previous estimations. They discovered this startling fact by using Refuse Collection figures, registrations at Medical Services and information gathered from a raft of other agents who have contact with their general public. They were able to do this so why can't we? The answer is, and I assure you it's completely true. They don't wish to do it because once it's done and once they've discovered the true population figures residential in our County, the results would become open to public scrutiny and people like me could use FOI and release the information to the reading public. In short, they don't want to know and have no intention of ever knowing. Whilst they don't know and can honestly say 'we don't know', they can bumble on ignoring the Elephant In The Room and blame everything on the ageing population. Thats the truth and you'd do well to believe it.
