Macquarie Fields, Australia

In Macquarie Fields, Australia, a 4-flat housing trust property was destroyed by a fire.

Nine people, all welfare recipients and gang members, lived on the right first floor flat. They died.

An Islamic group of seven welfare cheats, all illegally in the country from Pakistan, lived on the right ground floor flat. They, too, all perished.

Five Aboriginals, all ex-cons lived on the left ground floor. They, too, died.

A white couple lived on the left first floor flat. The couple survived the fire.

Various multicultural agencies were furious!!

They flew into Sydney and met with the fire commander.

On camera, they loudly demanded to know why 21 Maoris, Muslims and Aboriginals all died in the fire and why only the white couple lived?

The Fire Commander said,   “They were at work.”

Glynsky isn’t the only motor head!

As activity seems rather quiet on here right now, I thought I would add a car blog in Glynsky’s absence.

My little gem, a Jaguar, parked up in the garage most of the time and brought out for fun and outings etc., is an XKR 4.2 Special Edition.

Interior leather is ivory with two tone dash and doors. The electric roof is blue, to go with the pacific blue body.

I don’t know if the Jag hits any spots for others out there, but I do know Glynsky’s Papa had a taste for the Jags. The interior is quite lavish for a performance sports car, with walnut dash and all the added comfort items. In a couple of years or so this will class as a “classic” and increase in value. Just love the older body shape, but that’s just me!

Performance wise it is a 420bhp, 306KW, 4,196cc supercharged V8 petrol engine, driving rear wheels via 6spd automatic gearbox. Max speed: 155mph, (limited by computer), but does 0-62mph: 4.9 secs, which isn’t bad. It certainly thumps one into the back of the seat when the throttle is put to the floor! For anyone into the technical stuff, 6250 RPM, engine torque in lbs.ft 413 & 4000 RPM, Cremona 20″ alloys, DSC-Dynamic Stability Control, High performance ‘alcon’ brake callipers and discs, ABS + EBD + EBA.

So for those other motor heads out there, not just into Italian cars, hope this cheers up your day.

Off into the wind.

How to handle Belligerence

Untitled attachment 01126

This happened at Newark Airport.
For all of you out there who have had to deal with an irate customer, this one is for you.
A crowded United Airlines flight was canceled.
A single agent was rebooking a long line of inconvenienced travelers.
Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket on the counter and said;
“I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS.”
The agent replied, “I’m sorry, sir. I’ll be happy to try to help you, but I’ve got to help these folks first; and then I’m sure we’ll be able to work something out.”
The passenger was unimpressed.
He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, “DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?”
Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address microphone. “May I have your attention, please?”, she began, her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal. “We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him with his identity, please come to Gate 14.”
With the people behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the United Airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said, “F*** You!” Without flinching, she smiled and said, “I’m sorry sir, you’ll have to get in line for that, too.”

We call it diplomacy

Just to carry on from Er’s last comment first, how do you think we ended up with farming and fishing subsidies? We had the most productive farming / acre anywhere in the world prior to joining the EEC. The common agricultural & fisheries policies saw the end of these and subsidies became the name of the game, just so those who were (are) less efficient at both got hand outs!

When we are back on our own two feet, we can regain our waters and fish as much as we need to, without the Spanish taking all the illegal “smaller” fish. The farmers will respond accordingly and get doing what they do best. It might be hard at first, but things will settle.

This clip you may well like ER. It’s how politics ticks along in the UK…

I mentioned in my last comments recently that Teressa May might be a refreshing change, well I thought about that and May-be not! I like Andrea Leadsome. Now she is a refreshing change. Will she get to be the next PM though? I hope so as she lead the Brexit debate and will carry it forward.

Forward woman…
