An eventful and successful trip. I won't bore you with the details but I will say that after 9 years I finally have a deal with the Libyan authorities. (Although my most recent efforts concern the last six months, I have been trying to get this done since 2001). It bodes well for my company's future and for mine. It also means that I will be spending most of my days and nights in Tripoli for the foreseeable future. Certainly well into 2011 as I create and grow our company office there. It could have been worse: they could have asked me to work in Zimbabwe, or, Gawd forbid, the UK.
I was inordinately pleased to see that 143
Our Nige has done us proud again with some choice insults for Herman von Whothefuckareyou. I do love to see that man Farage in action. He says what no-one else dares to say, and he does it well. Yes, it got a little personal, but I believe him to be right when he uses shock tactics to wake up the benign little world of the EU.
I was also pleased to see Bullygate get a fair old airing. That the prime mentalist is not playing with a full deck must now be obvious even to the most ardent X Factorite.
The government continue their fight to part Ranty and his hard earned. I now have two letters to deal with: one from Companies House, and one from HMRC. I have spanners to throw into each of their works and will report back on progress. I can tell you now that neither responded in substance. This is key critical in law. I see though that I have more education to dispense.
I'd like to say that it's good to be back.
I'd like to say that, but I cannot. The north east of Scotland is covered in global warming again and driving home from the airport last night was a dangerous and scary experience. Cars littered the fields and some gormless twat decided that it was clever to drive just 10 feet from my rear end. I educated him by randomly applying my brakes. He got the message after about five miles and backed off.
So, what's been going on in your world?
