Yet more justice?

A shopkeeper captures three girls shoplifting on his CCTV and contacts the police. They can't be bothered so the shopkeeper posts pictures of the offenders outside his shop, presumably to shame them, a modest retribution.
Now the police are threatening the shopkeeper with arrest for infringement of the girl's human rights. It is another example of the complete turnaround of justice in a country throttled by the HR legislation which targets the innocent and frees the guilty.
Today we learn of the brutal murder and abuse of a 13 year old girl in Southampton. A 24 year old man has been arrested. If found guilty this man ought to be killed. no costly imprisonment; no even more costly rehabilitation; no yet more costly change of identity etc. Just kill him. I'm sick to the back teeth of the do-goody people who seem to find use of tax payers money to save the dangerous, perverted and demented amongst us.
For the shoplifting girls, bring back the stocks. Lock them up in the town square with descriptions of their misdemeanours so that the populace can identify them and their families. Shame them properly and make their families feed and water them as well as wipe the rotten tomatoes and eggs from their faces.

A football book that is readable

Austin & Macauley, the publishers described my novel, 'The George at Bustington', the third of, so far, three novels based on coaching inns in the beautiful Saigh Valley, as an 'enjoyable and engaging' read. They offered to publish the book for a fee beyond my pensioner resources so now as we await with eager anticipation the final games of the 2018 World Cup, I wish to promote my book about the players and staff of Bustington Wanderers football club.
The story is not about the game, although it crops up from time to time, it tells the personal stories, often addressing the taboos of both football  and life such as homosexuality, incest, racism and the supernatural, glued together by a background miasma of greed and corruption in the 'beautiful game' itself.
The book is available as a softback through Amazon or as an ebook for Kindle or Kobo, for the cost of a couple of pints at most.

Voting for poverty

You often hear remainers and Jeremy Corbyn argue that the people didn't vote in the Brexit referendum to become poorer. Pathetic.
The referendum asked voters whether they wished to stay in the European Union. It didn't ask if they wanted to become poorer, happier, have a better family life. A recent poll asked voters if they knew what they were voting for in the referendum and the overwhelming majority said they did. Almost every government Minister, including the then prime Minister, publicly stated that leaving the EU meant leaving the single market and customs arrangement. Do these 'remoaners' think the voting public are stupid? Then say so instead of coming up with these ridiculous statements about voting for poverty. Pathetic!

David Davis

How sad! A man of integrity at the helm of our negociations with a recalcitrant EU feels he cannot accede to the limited ambitions of Prime Minister, May's plans for Brexit.
For her part, Mrs. May is in a difficult position, having to balance the warring factions in her own Party, meet the wishes of the DUP in Northern Ireland, and counter the, frankly, treacherous posturing of the Scottish Independence and the Labour Parties whose sole desire is for another General Election. It is entirely possible that if she did call another GE a Party such as UKIP could rise, pheonix like, and capture the imagination of a public fed up to the back teeth with the established Parties.
I suggest that the UK settles now for World Trade terms and immediately starts discussion with other Countries on new trade deals. Amongst these should be Ireland. Despite being part of the EU, the Republic should claim special privileges to maintain no border between the two parts of the island. Where there's a will, there's usually a way.

National shame

The performance of the Colmbian football players in their match against England should be a matter of National shame. Their repeated fouling, arguing with the officials, despoiling of the penalty spot, headbutting, shoulder barging of English players as they left the pitch amounted to a disgrace which FIFA should address. That Maradonna a former Argentine player should immediately claim that the South Americans had been robbed was typical. He later retracted the statement but it only served to highlight the atrocious sportsmanship of the Colombian side and the insanity of 'the Hand of God', himself.
Talking of National shame, the British will welcome US President Trump shortly with mass demonstrations, stupid balloons and a ban on visiting Sheffield. The President is the leader of the UK's greatest allies, the man we would turn to if we needed military assistance, the man we talk to to establish trade arrangements, yet we are are set to treat him as a pariah. Why? Because the Mayor of  London is the son of immigrants and the Mayor of Sheffield is an immigrant. Where is the voice of the indigenous British people? Why isn't someone telling that sombrero toting idiot in Sheffield that Mexico won't help us.
What is happening to the UK that it is becoming a laughing stock, soon to be ridiculed by the EU for having the temerity to leave the United States of Europe. I can't help but feel sorry that Nigel Farage is leaving the political scene.
