Delayed Comments

ok..I have been a little busy recently, so here are my delayed comments!

FA Cup - What a match, down to penalties. Not the best way to go, but that is the way it goes. Congratulations Arsenal, better luck next year Man U, that is if Glazer hasn't bankrupted you.

Champions of Europe!! - what a comeback!! That is what I call a match! Congratulations Liverpool for never giving up, and winning the cup. I guess you will be partying for a while. Hopefully you will be allowed to defend it next year.

European GP - Congratulations Fernando! Bad luck Kimi, better luck next time.

Championship playoffs - Comiserations to Preston North End for not making it to the Premiership this time. Perhaps next year?

Random Stuff

Well, after all that nice weather we've had recently, it is grey and wet and a little cooler than of late....absolutely typical!!

Hmm...what to say....well the football season is over...only the FA Cup and a load of other stuff to finish off....will it be possible to have more than 2 weeks free of football? Probably not...doomed!

I saw Hitchhikers Guide and Kingdom of Heaven last week. Both are recommended films. This week I am going to Star Wars of course. Then there is Sin City, and Mr and Mrs Smith, Batman Begins, War of the Worlds, Stealth, The Island etc.

Ok, Disney has done a remake of LoveBug....why???

Sorry, this has gone a little awol...anyhow, you get the gist.


Interesting reading from the BBC -

Manchester United

ok, why is an American pushing for ownership of a football club? Does Malcolm Glazer know the first thing about it? I reckon he is going to get a bit of a shock when people stop showing up for matches, and stop buying the merchandise.

Does he not realise that people take football seriously here? American Football does not get these kind of supporters....I think culture shock doesn't even begin to cover it.

Oh well, I expect to see stuff on the news....

Politics - Elections is the 20th of April as I start this...approximately half way through the campaign...2 weeks to go.

Choice of Liberal Democrats, Labour, Conservative etc. Who will you vote for?

Is it me? I'm sorry, I will not be voting Labour, I do not trust them...why?

I don't think the taxes that are being taken are being appropriately or effectively used. What has your council done for you this past year?
Why will no-one sort out the massive fraud in the benefits system? Cut it back and have millions to spend elsewhere.
What about education? Are children being educated or being used as guinea pigs for the latest teaching fad?
Crime - what is the point of Community Support Officers / Community Wardens? I thought we needed a Police Force (sorry, Police Service) that dealt with criminals and protected the general public.

The armed forces are being drastically reduced just when they are needed the most.
They are not respected by the Labour Party. The men and women of the armed forces need to know that they are being supported, and that they are doing the right thing, and treated as professionals.

Which leads into....the war in Iraq. What reason were the troops sent in for?
WMD's - which are where exactly? No-one has found anything.
The Iraqi people - well they look really happy don't they? Thousands are believed to have died either at the hands of insurgents or the US military.
Terrorist groups - if there weren't any before, they seem to have turned the place into a training camp now. Oh and apparently no-one thought it was a good idea to guard weapons storage areas....
Saddam Hussein - They (the US) supported him for years against the Iranians in a war that killed millions. Was he that much of a threat after Desert Storm, and the continuing operations of bombing which systematically destroyed the armed forces of Iraq?

Now who did we follow....the US.
Why? I have no idea. It seems that there is no apparent reason for going into Iraq originally...will we ever know why?


4/5/05 or 5/4/05 for the confused.

Well...its the big day tomorrow.
Has any of the campaigning made you want to vote? Did it make you want to vote for another party?

If you have the vote, use it! Don't waste the opportunity. If you don't and complain about the result, just think about what 1 vote can do if you do make the effort. Some of the seats are contested by only a few hundred can make a difference.

Vote for the representative that can do the most for your constituency.
Don't vote for what everyone else is voting for....make your own decision.

Remember the voting starts nice and early....7:00am in some places, through to 10:00pm, so you have no excuse for not being able to vote. Make sure you have your voting card!

See you at the booths...or town halls or other locations.
