    Not one for giving the BBC any air but....

    "More people trying to give up their lockdown dogs, says charity"

    People really dont think do they ?

    This'll get worse.

    Here's the hilarious bit...if you google dog prices, you get this....

    https://travfurler.com/blogs/thepettravelblog/will-puppy-prices-go-down-after-lockdown

    This is from May...they're all saying the same thing about house prices now....

    Puppy prices may not be quite as steep as they were during the height of the pandemic, but they are also unlikely to significantly drop.

     

     

    Sure, but I’ve yet to see one house spawn 6 baby houses. :D

    Assisted suicide has always been in my mind as my right to choose. Watching my mother decline with dementia since she was diagnosed in 2015 at the age of 58 has been horrendous. My sister gave up her rental house on the coast to look after her in her little council house. I don't have the patience and really struggle to have her for a long weekend. She's getting to that incontinent stage now.

    That’s tough for everyone. My body outliving my mind is somehow far worse than the reverse.

    People need to wake up and realise that it's a rigged game controlled by the elite who place their puppets in all the different parties to ensure that whatever the outcome they still hold the strings. They control the media, the monetary system and all the levels of the establishment from the monarchy to the military and police and local councils. Getting rid of Thatcher and bringing in Blair changed nothing , the coalition between Tory and Lib just exposed the Libs as forelock tuggers . Starmer was a member of an organisation Noam Chomsky described as "undemocratic ,they talked about how the public needs to be reduced to its proper state of apathy and obedience. That organisation was the Trilateral commission where he served alongside Jeffrey Epstein. That's Starmer who failed to prosecute Jimmy Saville when DPP despite being handed evidence of 3 cases of rape against young girls . That's Saville , the procuror of children for the elite who also just happened to be besties with our next Head of State Prince Charles. That's Charles  whose brother was friends with  procuror of children Jeffrey Epstein and lets not forget Theresa May who helped lose all those embarrassing files on her Westminster colleagues. We have KGB agents buying seats in the House of Lords , our Home Secretary having secret meetings with foreign Govts and a sociopathic narcissist who lies habitually as a Prime Minister . The UK is a broken,bankrupt and rogue state , it's Empire has crumbled and its Union disintegrating , the vultures have gathered to feast on its carcass .

    Welcome to the Social Democrats! 

  4. Indeed, I expect significant numbers of people in their 20s-60s don’t just have a BOMAD, they have a CCOMAD (credit card of mum and dad) that never needs paying back. 

    We wonder how people can afford new cars and houses and holidays and private school fees…here it is - the comfortably retired are supplementing. 

    I personally know a couple who just bought a new Tesla and pre-covid took an overseas holiday every 6 weeks, who receive a monthly pocket money from her father of several hundred pounds. 

    All to avoid inheritance tax, one assumes. 

    Re work ethic, it’s telling that Branson’s kids won’t be set for life from their inheritance. Fending for yourself, fledging, is vital for a strong personality. The apron strings can turn into a noose.

    And in turn the Trans people are often at complete odds with others in the alphabet minority groups and especially towards "TERF" feminists. 

    The interests of the LGB are at odds with the T - who maintain that any ‘genital preferences’ are transphobic. ie your innate sexuality should include all genitals. A sad state considering the rising numbers of violent attacks on gay people in the UK. 

     

  6. If you believe the chronically online pink haired anime kids, they’re all desperate to dismantle the patriarchy and espouse communism. 🙄

    These people have never missed a meal.

    Personally the only party that remotely represents my beliefs is the Social Democrats, ie the party no one has heard of, so I shall have to continue holding my nose and voting for the pathetic, corrupt baboons of the Tory party. Greens aren’t focused on the environment anymore (social justice far more important), LibDems busy trying to out-woke them.

    I have discussed this issue with several friends who are doctors. They generally agree that any GP who has been in practice for more than 10 years and claims that they have never assisted a dying patient is lying. 

    There is the soft method I've seen the palliative nurses administer - as in, they provide the choice - of morphine, increasing in strength as needed. It's just a deep sleep until the breaths slow, and stop. There is dignity in it.

    This is an insane stat:

     

    Quote

    Before the crash, 7 per cent of British pensioners were millionaires, as measured by household wealth. Now, it’s 25 per cent — some three million people. A further three million are half-millionaires, with £500,000. That’s one out of every eight people eligible to vote.

    "In every situation, we seem to shaft the young in favour of the old,’ says one of the newer MPs. ‘That’s what we did in the pandemic. Then afterwards, rather than repair the damage, we shaft them again. And until they start voting, that’s not going to change. We’ll get away with it because, no matter how bad we are, Labour is worse.’"

    Sums it up for me. 

  10. We have an aging population, creaking infrastructure, and rising care home figures. Should people have a choice about how they die?

    Would you choose euthanasia if faced with years of mental deterioration and/or physical pain?

    I suspect this question will be asked more often in the years ahead.
