European Dissent Is Spreading
Short video from RT jammed full of news you probably won't see in your Soaraway Sun.
It's getting messy in Euroland. People have had enough.
Just this morning we learn that Ireland's credit rating has been downgraded to...Chav.
"Moody's cut Ireland's rating to Baa1 with a negative outlook from Aa2 and warned further downgrades could follow if Dublin was unable to stabilize its debt situation, caused by a banking crash after a decade-long property bubble burst."
FFS. Even I am a better credit risk than the Emerald Isle. I feel for the people there, I really do. Like us, like all 500 million of us, they are victims. Their politicians, like all politicians, are inept parasites. The sensible amongst us know that it is the banksters that caused the mess but they control the politicians absolutely and simply order them to pay bailout money. The Spineless Ones shake, grovel, and roll out the dosh. It's embarrassing to watch. Even more embarrassing when you realise that they do this with our consent.
Still, we are a simple people and we can be suitably misdirected with much more important issues like Julian Assange being forced to stay in his 10 bedroomed mansion set in 600 acres, or the snow, or the fact that petrol now costs £1.22, (£1.22? I dream of £1.22. I pay £1 fucking 26p!), or if all else fails, Strictly Come Eastenders Farm Street will be there to anchor us to reality. Praise be!
It will kick off soon. The anger is growing.
I'll get me quiver.
