'Turrets' to Brussels - about three hours max...

I listened to the local Kent News this evening, to hear what the immigration people in Dover were doing to ensure that all my County's people were safe and not facing any threats, due to the proximity of the murders in Brussels. I expected to see the officers on duty in Dover, and other places like Ashford, The Channel Tunnel, Ebbsfleet and yup, even St Pancras.

Nope! The 'reporters' or their autocue zombies, just spouted out inane comments on animal welfare, and hospitals that don't come up to standard! Oh yes, and some poor sod in Biddenden was killed during a burglary, which isn't right of course, and I actually know where he lived, poor chap, There are still plenty of feral thieves in this neck of the woods

What a pathetic, ill-informed, local news service we have, here in Kent. They have the usual 'Darwin slot' when some fat useless idiot is denied treatment for an excessive obesity condition, and muggers in Folkestone aren't allowed to be foreign.

But, we have to pay for Operation Stack, when the Frogs deny access to Calais! Our roads are stuffed with trade-losing lorries, and we have to cough up for all this, as - wow , do you believe it -  there's no budget for a new place to chuck all those juggernauts into, while Europe festers in such disarray.

I can't wait to get out of the disgraceful blasted EU, which was foisted on us all by that bloody man Heath. We were all sold a pup, and now the consequences, for this Kent man, are - Piss off!

Strangely enough for me I'm still confused on the whole in or out issue so hearing from you and others is of great interest to me.

Yes, Pig was due to have nuptials with Maud last weekend, but she wasn't well. I was looking forward to naming the puppies Brexit, Bacon, Kuffar, Haram, Sausage and Ayisha.

Just checked the headlines in my local Derbyshire rag. Here's an example dated today:-

Derby's first trampoline park was supposed to open tomorrow - but now it's not.

Our local news is usually pretty pathetic, Thud, and they clearly have an agenda where they ignore the fact that illegal immigrants are crowding over our county first, before getting to their mates elsewhere. Our police are just inundated with chasing along the M20 and the A2, and don't get to deal with other more pressing problems. Operation stack is a disgrace, and I've had a long meeting our Commissioner Ann Barnes, and she is totally committed to doing something about it, but is let down by KCC and others at every turn.

As far as I'm concerned, our proximity to appalling EU bedlam is the main reason why I'll vote to get out.

Sounds like a menu that all good dogs would appreciate, Lils! He was going to be a lucky dog, wasn't he!

How long before his next date? He's half Patterdale isn't he?

Michael said...

Oh BLAST, Mr H!

And I was going to bring the gcs up for a day out!

Whaaaaaaah!

I reckon the next story will be about an angry Scrobs claiming compensation!

Media trivia! Gosh, I said exactly the same thing to my better half today (before I looked at my computer which has been borrowed for the past week by visiting from UK sprog).

You of course heard the story of the lorry pulled over on the M2 by the police. "Excuse me Sir, but the limit on this road is 70". Driver looks through window behind his head and says< "Sorry but 5 of you will have to get out here".

How's your Golf going? With all these "visitors" on the roads I doubt you'll be able to get it out of second very often.

Michael said...

They're all out there, Reevers...

I like the yarn about the immigrants in the lorry too, but it hurts, as also, some scrote burglar is let off because Kent County Council have to pay to keep the vermin at bay. And we pay them to do it.

The Golf is gorgeous, and I just love experiencing the mechanics of a proper company which took over when the blasted unions ruined our UK car manufacturing business.

I've got to go and have a camera stuck down my throat tomorrow.

I keep hiccupping when I eat anything, and Mrs Scroblene is distressed and also upset, so it has to be. I don't like it either.

So far, the docs think it's not a problem, and being the normal sort of bloke, I'm with them, but there you go, it's swings and roundabouts at every turn!

rvi said...

Cheer up mate. I have to go for a pet scan on Friday - one year check up after major surgery (just to make sure I am still alive...). Having a tube stuck down your throat is no problem so long as you remember no to swallow or cough while it is in.

Must be old age catching up with us.

Michael said...

Hey thanks, Reevers! I just hope they remember to put a film in the bloody thing!

It's no big deal really, just as you say, it's a sign of middle age creeping on...

...and on!

Good luck with your scan - I hope you'll get the five star OK!

Michael said...

Went well actually! No serious probs seen, and they pump you up to expand the bits so hard, the world shook half an hour later as a result, I can tell you...

rvi said...

Hi Scrobs and thanks for your good wishes.

I am very happy to report I got a clean bill of health today. All systems up and running normally and no bugs lurking in the woodwork. So I think I can say I have now got my life back, although it has been recommended that I do it all again in 12 months' time - just in case....

Michael said...

That's marvellous news, Reevers! Great to hear that our correspondent from the Orient (or somewhere nearby), is in fine fettle - as would be expected!

I've just surfaced from the first good kip of the week, and am soooo looking forward to another day on the 'Patch', when I can plant my onions!

Have a good weekend, and also some good vino with Mrs Reevers to celebrate your success!
