With the world about to dissolve into a financial crisis, can anyone tell me why our politicians on a global scale are so fucking hopeless?
The Eurofuckers instead of taking the decisions that they should have on the crisis in Greece, i.e. let them default, continued to take their holidays. Everyone knows it's going to happen and they should have made the decision instead of letting the rest of the PIIGS get dragged in. Here in Spain, the regions, which are semi-autonomous are bust. That is, in my opinion, because no one pays tax. I don't know about Greece, but here the 'black' economy is huge. As soon as you say you are willing to pay cash, whether to a builder or even in a department store, you can knock off at least 20%. My council tax for a three bedroomed bungalow with lots of outside space is 124 Euros a YEAR. How is that possible? The roads are better than at home, the street lights are the same and OK you have to take your rubbish to the nearest bin instead of getting it picked up once a fortnight, so are we getting conned in the UK?
The Health Service, I am told, is far superior in Spain, although I don't want to test that theory! The way of life is also better. It rained last night for the first time in 3 months, yet water is plentiful and cheaper than what you English pay and only slightly more expensive than in Scotland. Power is also much cheaper. Why have our politicians let the power companies fleece us year on year. We all presume to know the answer to that and probably Tony Bliar is the living proof!
It's time we changed the system and got rid of the whole fucking lot of our 'Global' politicians and got back to more localised politics.
Anyway Amigos, enough moaning, back to the sun!
