What Has Happened to our Public Services?

On the even of one of the largest and potentially dangerous influx of economic migrants arrving from Rumania and Bulgaria we got a glimpse of the future following a few December storms. It is clear that already the public utility services cannot cope in emergency.

Threre appears to be no continency plans set for unusual weather.  Airports close, trains are cancelled, electricity companies cannot be contacted, roads are cluttered with fallen trees and accident and emergency wards are creaking at the seams with the elderly waiting hours for attention.

Everywhere you look we have incompetence and an inability to cope.  It is Christmas so they all run away and hide.  In the meantime families have been left withour essential services and are just offered apologies and compensation.  That compensation comes from us the, rest of the general public, who got away with it this time! 

But why are so many houses being regularly flooded?  The simple reason is that in their desperation to cope with the wave of economic migration they have been quietly building on flood plains.  They are called 'flood plains' because they bloody flood!

My serious complaints are however, always reserved for the transport industry.  The lack of planning, the lack of essential resources, the filth, the overcrowding, excessive prices and a total lack of empathy for the paying customer would be challenged by any politician with an ounce of integrity.

They continue to fatuously argue about HS2 and a third airport when what they should be doing is modernising our existing railways, cancelling franchises and cleaning up disgusting airports like Gatwick!

It has always been thus Bry, what the northern half of the UK (roughly Yorkshire upwards) calls "a normal winter day", those self important, self obsessed pillocks in the south talk about the end of the world as we know it. It is armageddon, a new ice age...... Twats.

Anyway, hope you had a good Christmas and I wish you and yours a happy and prosperous New Year. Lang may yer lum reek.

ps, My wife and I are both working this new year trying to make sure people don't wait too long in the NHS.

What the hell did they expect to happen when they crammed at least 10 million new people into an already overcrowded island with making adequate provision for their housing, transport and social needs.

Have you noticed its only on the blogs that this is being discussed with any truth or common sense, its the elephant in the room, if you mention it elsewhere its like you've just sworn in church.

There's too many bloody people here, the country is buggered big time, i can't see any way of housing transporting and servicing this (STILL for Christs' sake) increasing population other than concreting over the entire country, then we'll see some flood problems.

The thing that gets me is that millions of ordinary turkeys voted for this, their very own Christmas, and they can't wait till 2015 to do exactly the same again when they vote for the three cheeks of the arse party yet again.

Bloody Lunacy.
