From Guy & Linda:
... as of 1st November, 2013.
They really don't like the new rules about Indemnity Insurance (and
removal of Legal Aid).
Note: Of course, the idea is that they are forced into consolidation
into 'big' firms. Exactly the same techniques (originally) used to
push us into 'impersonalised city dwellings'.
Of course, the other thing is that they are afraid of us:
... as some (at last!) Irishmen get up off their knees (but not for
the first time in history!).
A few weeks ago, while walking back from a shopping trip, a couple
(who live at the end of my road), started talking to me, as I passed
So I stopped for a chat.
While we were talking, one of the Dustmen came around the corner (on
his own ... the 'advanced guard' ... who was throwing the black bags
to the edge of the road ... ahead of the lorry).
The couple (apparently) knew him ... and started some banter with
He was Irish. And started to make jokes about the Irish ... saying
that he was from Northern Ireland (Belfast). I said "I know
someone from Belfast ... who is taking on the corrupt Courts, and
so on". He seemed very pleased at this.
He carried on bantering about the Irish.
Eventually I said "There's nothing wrong with the Irish ...
they've saved 'civilisation' twice!"
He said "Yes ... I know all about that".
This guy was doing one of the most menial tasks that 'society' can
allocate ...and yet he showed more intelligence than those whose
garbage he helps to clean up!
