No S**t Sherlock!
My local council in Sandwell has a a new campaign to persuade dog owners to pick up and dispose of their dog poo. I’m in favour of this. Everywhere I go they are walking their mutts.
I would go farther and make sure that dangerous dogs have a muzzle, all dogs are kept on a lead and owners always clean up after them. My local councillor objects to the campaign slogan, “No s**t Sherlock. I object to s**t on my shoes and dogs sniffing my ****…
Meanwhile, the storm still batters Britain and the floods continue. This is an ‘issue’ to do with rivers and is ‘impacting’ people in the south of England. At the ‘end of the day’ the government should do something about it.
The Bedroom Tax
The bedroom tax is a bit of a cock up as people who have been claiming housing benefit for 17 years have been paying it wrongly. There appears to be a loophole. A spokesperson for the DWP said:
Spokesman Steve Milne, said: “We expect very few people to be affected by this issue and we are working closely with councils so claimants are informed if they are impacted.”
I just knew there would be issues impacting people. In the Black Country we rarely have issues outside of government offices and civic centres; we have old fashioned problems. These affect people rather than impact them, but in the final analysis we usually cope…
Getting the sick back to work
Not feeling too good? The government has a plan to help the sick get back to work.
Up to 960,000 workers in Britain were on sick leave for more than a month each year between October 2010 and September 2013, according to new figures released by the DWP.
They obviously have issues, impacting their health and well being!
The government has a plan to refer them for occupational assessment. Not ATOS again!
The Work and Pensions minister Mike Penning said: “More than 130 million days a year are lost to sickness absence in Great Britain, which has a substantial impact on workers, employers and taxpayers.
I just knew someone would be impacted. I think an issue that impacts society is f*t politicians like Mike Penning sitting on their ar*es all day, thinking up daft ideas when they should be getting some exercise. They could walk round the park picking up dog s**t … That would be more useful than bringing out more useless schemes, involving awarding multi million pound contracts to French companies.
Britain is an Island
People once thought that the earth was flat and was created by an old man with a long beard who lived up in the sky. Now we know the earth is round, they are still talking about the issues to do with the old man in the sky…. You can forgive the stupid people from thinking the earth is flat, it looks flattish, apart from the hills and valleys. You wouldn’t know that Britain is an island and a small one at that, unless you looked at a map and compared it to places like the United States or China. It is small and that could have something to do with those traffic jam issues we have and those shortage of housing issues and those shortage of nursery places that we have. It could also have something to do with our need to build new schools and queues in Asda and having to wait 6 hours to see someone in A&E. We live in a small over-populated country, much smaller than China where they introduced a one child per family policy to control their population.
Someone said the country might be full up. Issues surrounding immigration and people having lots of kids…
No s**t Sherlock!
I nearly forgot the tidal lagoon in Swansea Bay. This is the latest idea for making electricity from the tides. It seems like a good idea. The RSPB and Friends of the Earth like it. It will cost 850 million which seems expensive, but it’s not tax payers money and it’s much less than HS2. It’s a lot more bloody use than a train set too. It would be a shame if all the electricity it makes is used to get people to work in London serving f*t politicians with even more food so they get even fatter. I hope they have looked at the issues and the impact, because at the end of the day…
If you have any issues impacting you, please comment, because you know at the end of the day; I’ll read them and give a robust response in an environmentally challenging way…
