I WAS ALL SET on stocking up on the prime ingredients of a lower-class tea for supper:~ all potato waffles, Heinz baked beans (value are poorly sugared and full of water; I heartily advise against them) and several litres of frying oil. Heck, I even had the Benson & Hedges ciggie for afterwards!
But what attack of prissiness has struck the modern "supermarketing community"... NO frying instructions upon ANY of their industrial foods' packagings... am I really going to GRILL my greasies? I think not... especially as I live in a fleapit so ill-equipped we don't even HAVE a grill ...
And what is it with CHICKEN. CHICKEN CHICKEN CHICKEN cluck-cluck-clucker!~?? Chicken chicken EVERYWHERE and yet no pleasantly battered simple sqauares of fish. How dreadfully vulgar. ALL I wanted was battered fried fish with potato waffle in baked beans and a fag on:~ what's wrong with that? And yet my attempts at purchase were thwarted by a supermarket that stocks ALL chicken (e.g. chicken fingers) where it should be fish... and no frying (shallow or deep) cookery instructions. New Labour is like that short story we did at school where someone trod on a butterfly in time travel... then the world was ever so subtly, sinisterly different.
Not only do they erode our human rights. E.g. they're going blue in the face for the right to lock someone up without charge for 42 days (of course they would do this in the name of anti-terror)... they INSIST on ID cards as a cure for... guess what? yeah, TERROR. even though Spain - surely a tie with Britain for most-bombed country in Europe HAS identity cards and ID cards would NOT have prevented the 7:7 attacks. They keep 4,000,000 people's DNA profiles WITHOUT their permission... the only thing they do well with data is to frequently LOSE it. Oh and they assume they already HAVE the right to SPY on our CARS with some Orwellian device that MEASURES THE VOLUME OF BLOOD IN THE VEHICLE. Nobody even remarked how intrusive or sinister this was: the issue at stake was "should we have number of person in car lane charging things?" answer no and stop snooping. They EVEN want to instal a gizmo in each and every motor vehicle in the UK that would record by satellite tracking literally EVERY journey - no matter how short - taken by every vehicle in this country. Cross-referenced and checked against the 4,000,000 security cameras we already have snooping on us.... TONY BLAIR: a big fat thank you for setting up ALL THAT IS REQUIRED for when a TRUE DICTATOR DOES COMMANDEER THIS COUNTRY ...!
Right I have to go it's late and there were squeaks from my trottery earlier! Yes, that would-be Napoleon Bonaparte of the Roborovskis, Baby Itchy was probably asserting her ever-higher rungs and echelons on the hamster-peckery... and pink nose to pink nose knocked her housemate over and all manner of squarking ensues! (Well anything to change the subject off the state failures of Tony Blair...) righto better go ~ as they used to say each evening at Welwyn Stores:~~ GOODNIGHT EVERYONE; GOODNIGHT!
Staying at the Palace - Most of my holidays were spent in a caravan in Port Eynon on Gower. It belonged to a friend of my mum's who let us use it for a week a year. [image: Regent...
