We met 42 years ago in Lancashire, and 9 months later moved to London, where we knew absolutely no one. Now both of us had pretty good jobs, and so we road tested each other for 5 years, and travelled a lot…Possibly the funniest and nicest was hitch-hiking in Morocco. We of course had our ups and downs, like any couple, but she stayed with me, when I nearly lost the plot, but quickly made a recovery, when I stopped smoking and nearly gave up drinking so as to be keen and clean.

So we said to each other – we’ve done 5 years now, lets run away to Gretna Green , not tell anyone and get married as if we were both 16, and have children – and so we did.

Probably the last time we were in Scotland.

Neil Oliver would be a toddler then.

Neil Oliver says exactly the way I feel. He’s a total genius, and nice with it. He is often good, but this, is off the scale. No one else does anything like the quality of this. Different Audience to James Corbett who is probably nearly as old as me

From my favourite open source of education, YouTube:

Scott Ritter explains how Hamas foiled Israel’s Final Solution for their Palestine Problem.

Good news for the people of the U$A: China and KSA agree to trade oil in Yuan. End of the petrodollar means U$ will have to sell their own goods instead of unearned income from foreign oil sales. Burden of maintaining a global reserve currency shifts to China.

Why is it that the happiest people on earth have no education, but plenty of experience, and the dumbest, most depressed folks are those with degrees from reputable institutions?

If formal education made us more curious, creative, independent, self reliant, outspoken, eloquent and empathic, it would be illegal.

Rightwing Libertarians like Corbett would imitate Rand in thinking ‘Wow, a moocher’.

And never ‘maybe rightwing Libertarianism doesn’t work and is also transparently evil’.

My system works for me, I pay my taxes and thats enough.
When I step over a homeless I think, “Why tf are you not pulling yourself UP by the hair, instead of pulling yourself down by your balls”. 🤗

When they were doing a photo shoot, they brought in models, and told us to get out of the way. I have no idea why. We didn’t exactly look like that on night shift, but the girls were pretty and well behaved…(working shifts is brill, cos you tell each other absolutely everything of your private lives as if you are brother and sister – almost like a family)

Good times

James Corbett, I have Massive Respect for you..Never been to Japan.Some of My Kid’s friends have moved to China, and my son and I buy most of our high tech stuff from China.

This was my education…

I didn’t volunteer. It took me a year, on the dole after a year at university. I applied 3 times, got turned down twice, and worked out how to do the IQ computer test, and as a result of numerous other interviews, improved my interview technique….He was really nice, and this time I didn’t get turned down. I got a letter offering me the job as a trainee computer operator at the age of 19… So, I didn’t do just what I was told, but I did that too…but there were other jobs, that needed doing, which was not my responsibility, so did them too.

They noticed, and said I am now the team leader….I had no experience at managing people – I was the shy one at school…

So by the age of 21, I had several people in my team…one National Front, one Socialist Workers Party..and several others….The girls didn’t, but these two blokes – probably older than me…cos one tried to be an MP….all shaved nice and clean…the other guy was very hairy and liked the same music as me…They used to go to demos in Manchester about immigration – and chuck bricks at each other…

So I had to go all Authoritarian…Outside of work..You can do wtf you like…Nothing to do with me…but whilst you are working here in my team…you will not only be polite to each other, you will work together, doing the jobs that need to be done..Come on neither of you are stupid…We have got to make this work, cos we are being paid to make it work.

So they did. Best mates in work.
…..

And almost lifetime later…(I am not dead yet)

“Through their own words
They will be exposed
They’ve got a severe case of
The emperor’s new clothes
The emperor’s new clothes
Emperor’s new clothes
The emperor’s new clothes”

The death of Sinéad O.’connor nearly killed me too.

Two days later, I was rushed to hospital with Sepsis

The immigrants from all over the world – of all colours saved my life…

She was absolutely stunningly Black and Beautiful..Cleverest and nicest girl there – who worked so hard going way beyond her job description, to get me home with my wife….they worked together – what does he need…he can’t walk yet. My wife said – “I will sort that. He did it for me, when I got run over by a car on the way to my dance class.”

Merry Christmas

Tony
