I Fucking Hate Unions!

As we all know, the postal workers are currently on strike for 48 hours, just as they were last week.

I REALLY hate unions. Firstly, they are all run by idiots with overly loud shouty working class voices which makes me think of all that 'power to the people' shit from the 70's. The only thing any of them say when I hear them on Radio 4 is what a bad lot they have and how the management of which ever company they 'work' for are screwing them over. You will never hear anything constructive said. They never have any real arguments.

I don't know about you but if I am not happy in my job I look for another. I don't decide to stop work until I get more pay/longer tea breaks/more overtime. If I did I would be sacked! Are all these postal workers so thick that they need their idiot union bosses to speak for them? Can they not look for a job? They can't all be that pathetic!

Do the postal workers think they are fighting for a worthy cause? The Royal Mail (which I agree is total shit these days) is trying to modernise as they are losing 10% of their business every year. Since the postal strikes started the list of companies changing delivery company is huge, including M & S, Argos, Play.com, Amazon, John Lewis.....I could go on. These companies are NEVER coming back. That is lost business forever. These union retards are killing the company they work for.

Unions were once a good thing. When people were sent down unsafe mines or under looms to clear out stray cotton they had a purpose. Stop people dying or we won't work. Now, in 2009 they do not. They are redundant. I think the union leaders call strikes just to make sure they keep their jobs!

Talking about union leaders, how much do we think the leader of the CWU is on? While the postal workers are losing money while they strike this wanker is on £97,000!! They all pay their union dues to keep this prick in luxury? Maybe they are all a bit thick after all.

Unlike Maggie Thatcher with the Miners strike, Gordon Brown has already given in once to these twats and I am sure he will do it again, ruining the postal service even more than it already is and leaving an even bigger mess when he gets booted out of office next year. I personally think we should lynch the twat.

Anyway, rant over. Just don't ever ask me to join a union as a kick in the balls really hurts.

To be fair, not all posties are on strike. Ours was delivering last week and when Victoria said 'I thought you were on strike' he replied with 'I want to work, it's nearly Christmas'. Good lad!!!

autosport.com - F1 News: Ten facts about Abu Dhabi

autosport.com - F1 News: Ten facts about Abu Dhabi:

Ten facts about F1's newest track. It does look amazing but that does not change the fact that there are only 50,000 seats available, which reflects the love of F1 in the country.

I am sure that in a couple of years the cars will be playing to empty grandstands just like they do in China/Malaysia/Bahrain and any other track that Bernie Ecclestone thinks is 'important to the future of F1'.

Of course the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is sold out, they’ve only got 50,000 seats

Of course the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix is sold out, they’ve only got 50,000 seats

Why oh why does Bernie insist on having Grand Prix's in countries that don't care about F1? Money is the reason.

Silverstone had six time as many people through the turnstiles over the GP weekend this year and yet Bernie says F1 does not need a British GP.

I think he needs to remember where F1's root are and where most of the teams are based. Oh yes, he also needs to remember where most of the fans are, here in Europe.

BBC SPORT | Motorsport | Formula 1 | Todt elected as Mosley successor

BBC SPORT Motorsport Formula 1 Todt elected as Mosley successor:

No surprise here then.

This is about as fair an election as the vote not to kick Herr Mosley out of office after his roll in the hay with prostitutes.

Still, at least I don't have to see as much of that wrinkled, zombie like, mouth breathing twat's face anymore.

What A Great Weekend.

Friday started well with me managing to run 2 miles. I have only just started running and so this is a milestone (pardon the pun) and I feel very pleased with myself.

Friday evening Victoria and I went to see Spandau Ballet at the Sheffield arena. This was my wedding anniversary present to Victoria and myself and we had a great time. They were brilliant and essentially sang all the old hits with just one new song. Exactly what people wanted to hear!

Saturday night I decided to cook for Victoria and I as Sunday was our 7th wedding anniversary. I cooked Sea Trout wrapped in parma ham with a salad coated in a vinaigrette I made for a starter. It was really nice. For a main I cooked beef fillet with a mushroom gratin, sauteed potatoes (cooked with garlic, rosemary and butter) and creamy spinach with horseradish. It was really good. I was very pleased with myself. The beef was VERY rare. Just how I like it.

Victoria and I then sat up until 3am drinking wine and talking while listening to music. A great night spent with my lovely wife.

Sunday was our wedding anniversary. Seven years have flown by. We were feeling a little tired having been woken up by rug rats at about 7am and decided that a day doing nothing was required, which is exactly what we did.

Just to finish off the weekend we watched Jenson Button win the F1 world championship (see below) in Brazil. What a great ending to the weekend and the F1 championship.

Unfortunately all this excess means I feel rather groggy and bloated today. This mornings run was no fun at all! :-) It was of course well worth it.

Happy anniversary Victoria. I love you. :-)

BBC SPORT Motorsport Formula 1 Button savours dream world title

Jenson Button clinched the F1 world championship yesterday afternoon in Brazil. He started 14th with his main rival on pole which was a bad way to start any race. However, he cut his way through the traffic and drove a perfect race to finish 5th and give himself an unbeatable lead with 1 race to go.

This was one of the best races I have seen for a long time. Excitement from beginning to end. We also have another British champion, and the first time we have had back to back British champions in the history of F1.

Well done Jenson!!!!

How To Connect a PS/2 Keyboard to the iPhone

How To Connect a PS/2 Keyboard to the iPhone

One has to wonder why you would want to attach an old PS/2 keyboard to an iPhone, especially when it is connected via a rather large PCB powered by a 9v battery but I suppose the answer would have to be 'Because I can'. :-)

If it means going to NASCAR I think I would rather quit racing all together! :-)

Stupid Politicians!

PunterNet thanks Harriet for massive upswing • The Register

Why are the people who run this country so frickin stupid? It does make for a funny story though. :-)
