Number 3 son got married a couple of weeks ago and a great time was had by all! It wasn't a traditional church wedding as neither bride nor groom are religious but it was held in the historic and very picturesque, Guild Hall, in Derry. The reception was in a marquee in the garden of the bride's family home which sounds very posh but wasn't really. it was all very relaxed and casual and one of the best weddings I ever attended but maybe I'm biased. And as a bonus, Liverpool won the European Cup that same night which added another layer of celebration to what was already a very happy occasion and we sang and danced into the wee small hours.
I was trying to upload a picture of me in my wedding finery but it keeps coming out sideways. I then tried to change it to my profile picture but again it kept coming out sideways and there are no options to move/resize or rotate the image. Extremely frustrating! It's a fairly simple process to upload a picture and it should be straight forward but the OU seems to be years behind with updating the technology and what you can do with your blog.
Meanwhile, back in the world of politics, we have the 'night of the long knives' as the egotistical and obnoxious scrabble about for the job of PM and leadership of the Tory party. Boris, 'the buffoon' is, of course, the front runner, making him the prime target for the Neo-Liberal Fascists in the media and the EU. Don't be fooled by the 'tomfoolery', Boris Johnson is a perfect example of the old saying, 'stupid as a fox!' Which could be dodgy enough for Boris, considering the Tory position on foxes???
Maybe it's just me but there is something profoundly repulsive about Jeremy Hunt, he has a strange starey look about the eyes which I don't trust and makes me suspect he may actually be, I was going to say Artificial Intelligence, but I have serious doubts about the intelligence part of that but most certainly, very artificial or just full of artifice.
Rory Stewart seems like a reasonable human being but then I remember he is a Tory! I don't have a favourite, after all, they are all Tories but when you sit back and look at the whole thing, you realise what a complete and total farce it all is. An unseemly scrabble between weak men with big egos because lets face it, if there was a real man among them, he would stand out a mile.
I have to say, though, wasn't that an interesting bit of gossip about Michael Gove and his past dalliance with cocaine? Old dull and boring Gove, who would have thought it? Although, they do say, it's the quiet ones you have to watch, I wonder what else he gets up to?? Can't you just picture him in all that bondage gear getting a damned good thrashing from a dominatrix! Hmmm,,. maybe I should consider a career change...
Meanwhile, things are hotting up in the Middle East as the dark forces of the ‘Empire’ (CIA, Saudi Arabia, Mossad, Bilderburg) up their game in an attempt to start the war to seize control of Iran’s oil.
When I look back now at the events of the last 19 years, I have to wonder was it a coincidence that the secular states in the Middle East were the ones to be attacked and the leadership removed, think Iraq, Libya and the attempt to topple Assad in Syria. Was the dark hand of Saud operating in the background and pulling some of the strings all this time? It is refreshing to see that online, at least, the attack on the ships in the Hormuz Strait is fooling no-one and I haven't seen a comment yet that believes Iran was responsible. Will that stop the sabre-rattling and a war? I would hope so but considering the past and Iraq, I doubt it...
