3rd test – england v west indies – antigua

Filed under: just whinging — anne thrope (miss) @ 10:21 am

so, as on so many previous occasions, england’s cricket team surrenders a winning position, or as the modern cliche would have it, snatches defeat from the jaws of victory.

to be fair, credit should be given to the final west indies pairing who preserved their wickets until an appeal for bad light was lodged, and sustained by the umpires, the match therefore ending as a draw.

but that does not spare the blushes of the england bowlers who should have sent them back in short order, for small change, securing a series levelling win.

as it is we have only the extention of the series to five matches following the abortive start at the sir vivien richards stadium to thank for the fact that it’s still possible for us to win overall.

plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose, as i’m almost certain they don’t say in antigua.

(to be honest, at the moment they’re more likely to be saying “where the hell is my dough (sir) allen?”)

toodle-pip, sports fans 🙂

home and away – an every day story of milking the system

Filed under: doggerel,just whinging,politics — anne thrope (miss) @ 10:17 am

a house in the constituency,
a bedroom with your sis:
which is your main residence
and which just takes the piss?

confucius he say: beware your constituents for they are not as stupid as you take them for and will come back and bite your arse.

same again recycled

Filed under: just whinging,politics,the bleedin' obvious — anne thrope (miss) @ 8:43 pm

so the supermarkets are still using too much packaging according to the local government association, and it suggests the stores should contribute to the cost of recycling, as an incentive to produce less waste.

swipe me, that’s come out of the blue. what are we gonna do now boss?

of course that’s common sense, and to suggest that retailers should, within reason, minimize the amount of packaging they use on their products is surely what granny used to call “a statement of the bleedin’ obvious”! what a poppet she was, i can hear her saying it now! (more…)

silent routine!

Filed under: just whinging,politics — anne thrope (miss) @ 7:00 pm

so two nuclear-powered submarines, one british and one french have collided whilst on routine patrol in the atlantic ocean.

both vessels, which were armed with nuclear warheads were badly damaged in the incident, which occurred in stormy conditions earlier this month. alarming.

of course the mod would have wished to keep this debacle top-secret but when the royal navy’s was towed back to its base at faslane on the firth of clyde displaying very obvious scrapes and dents the cat was unfortunately out-of-the-bag (old boy). (more…)

blank verse

Filed under: business,doggerel,just whinging — anne thrope (miss) @ 2:22 pm

sir victor you should walk the plank,
your hbos acquisition stank.
by swallowing this poison pill,
you’ve made your own bank very ill.
you only have yourself to thank,
you wrote the cheque which screwed the bank.
you left the bloody figures blank!

best regards, a grateful shareholder. 🙁

lloyds-tsb – the other shoe

Filed under: business,just whinging,politics — anne thrope (miss) @ 11:54 am

lloyds-tsb – the other shoe – dropping soon with a hell of a bang. are we past noticing/caring?

time-and-again, supposedly mature, intelligent, oh let’s go for gold, prudent bank managements have shown a schoolboy preference for quantity over quality. is this good, sensible business, or is it pathetically predictable corporate me-tooism? you choose! (more…)

england 2nd test – antigua

Filed under: just whinging,sport — anne thrope (miss) @ 7:51 pm

though not one given to quoting the late, great gene pitney, even in times of stress, i feel bound to say ‘i must be seeing things, i thought i’d never see’. i know, you’re saying, “calm yourself, anne” but it’s to no avail.

we’re talking test cricket here. if the first game of this series was an embarrassment match two is a howler of an entirely different stripe. (more…)

hbos – another chapter of disgrace

Filed under: just whinging — anne thrope (miss) @ 7:23 pm

when, back in september, the first inklings of the parlous state of the so-called mighty hbos banking group became apparent it was, of course in the interests of both management and government to play down the scale of the drama. ‘crisis, what crisis?’ … fundamentally sound, well-run company’ etc,etc. bollocks!

but when, by contrast with the normally protracted due diligence / monopolies procedures, the lloyds/tsb group’s takeover was simply waved-through in just days, it was obvious that the situation was dire.

(now beware: confucius say: bank who buys other bank gets shafted. maybe rroyd/tsbs rissen better next time? if it has the good fortune cookie to lemain in existence. or if it has desperate rabor government up arse, plobary not). prease excuse rudiclous latiar steliotype ranguage used only to emphasise stupidity of british banks … all except hbsc … smart (good) fortune cookie. 😉 )

just how dire however is only becoming clearer in an embarrassingly piecemeal fashion. today we have been advised of the latest estimate of it’s losses for the last financial year.

yes shareholders it’s £11 billion .. count’em .. of your english pounds, give or take (don’t hold’em to that; like a london bus, there’ll be another (bigger, let’s call it a bendy) loss along in a minute).

i am yet to hear of the government demanding an increased share of the company to compensate the hard-pressed taxpayer for this loss of equity and given it’s spineless track record i shall not be holding my breath.

i’m sorely tempted to ask ‘well, what’s another £11 billion down the pan in these circumstances?’ but surely that would be crass and uncalled-for.

wake me when it’s over suckers. cry

sven alert, sven alert!

Filed under: just whinging,sport — anne thrope (miss) @ 3:41 pm

eeee-aaawww, eeee-aaawww! just when you thought it was safe to go back on the training ground, sven alert!

inevitably the ‘s’ word was uttered by sports hacks immediately the managerial vacancy arose at portsmouth fc. (more…)

a sad farewell then to jimmy crosby

Filed under: business,doggerel,just whinging,politics — anne thrope (miss) @ 2:08 pm

a sad farewell then, to jimmy crosby
perhaps the downfall of hbos was be-
cause of the remarkably cavalier way
you seem to have disregarded the fsa

fancy you turning up there later eh? wink
