Goodbye to a great Dame…

Dame Diana Rigg has passed away today at the age of 82. She succumbed to Cancer and I for one think she made an amazing contribution to the British Screen.

She was quite simply an awesome actress and the people I grew up watching are slowly saying goodbye to this world, and that is sadly one of the downside of getting older.

There is nothing like a Dame and there will be nobody else like Dame Diana Rigg again as she was not only beautiful, sassy and funny but she was a great actress.

Dame Diana Rigg was last night hailed as a 'luminous talent' after her death yesterday at the age of 82. Pictured: Rigg with Patrick McNee in The Avengers

Anyone of a certain age brought up on 1960s black and white television will remember Diana Rigg as the leather catsuit-clad, high-kicking Emma Peel, writes Richard Kay
A stunning woman…..

Boris just cannot win!!!

So we now find ourselves in a somewhat lockdown due to the irresponsibility of some people, yet rather than look at themselves they have put the blame with the one man who is not only trying to prevent deaths but also keep this country going and stopping us becoming bankrupt.

How many times did we hear the wailing of “can’t put my child in school cause of the virus”, but can take them down to the beach along with hundreds of thousands of others who selfishly put whole communities at risk, as they obviously didn’t care for their own safety nor that of their family.

There are people like me who have strictly adhered to the lockdown procedures by the Government, and we are now having to pay that price again and it is unfair, but I do not blame Boris….infact I am even more convinced that he is doing a good job in unprecedented times and all I hear from fence sitting Starmer is endless nonsense and no actual real ideas….so he needs to get back in his box, after all if you cannot offer a solution then you become part of the problem.

I blame all those who met up at the beach and all those protest meetings that seem to bring every nut job in this summer of absolute madness. They are to blame for this country going into lockdown and this has forced the hand of Boris who really does not want to see our NHS on its knees trying to cope with a deadly virus. Don’t forget this man has seen the horrid side of this god awful infestation and he doesn’t want people to go through that.

Those who are criticising him are doing so without looking in the mirror. We get those who are not medically exempt and that is fine and must be pretty scary for them to be out, but others get your face covered. I had to go to the hospital today and worn mine…and I could feel the panic attack coming but took a deep breath because it is not just for my safety but yours, and I owe it to people I might never talk to to care enough to prevent them from becoming infected as we don’t know if we are carriers, as some people do not become ill and just infect others.

I actually had to watch my grandchildren from the car today as we decided to start today instead of Monday, and it broke my heart but they understood and we will back to the endless skype nights and nana and grandad buying them all their hearts desires in toys to show them that we are thinking of them. I cannot see my own mother as some fool straight off holiday went into the retirement village and yep you guessed it, the place has Covid 19 in it and she has only just been allowed out but now in lockdown again. It was not one of the old people who brought it in and it is not generally the old people who are causing this as trust me we are petrified of catching this, because quite simply our systems cannot tackle it as good as the young people.

Instead of blaming Boris do as you are told. We are all to old for that stupid teenage rebellious streak after all if someone told you walking down a motorway at night could result in you being hit by a car…you wouldn’t do it, so why play cat and mouse with a virus?

This virus is not an enemy we can see, we cannot call a ceasefire and we cannot sit down and discuss how to get out of it and it is not something we can see, touch or taste, yet it is in our everyday being and in the air is frightening……truly frightening.

Stop blaming Boris and give him the support that he needs as this Government has given so much help to individuals and it has been unprecedented, yet he gets no thanks from it….just endless moaning. I did not qualify for the furlough scheme because I had not been self employed for that long, and yes I lost out on speaking gigs too but it is what it is and I do not blame Boris but rather give him one hundred percent support, as lets face it…..we could have had Corbyn in and had he become unwell and it would have been Diane Abbott running the country!!!! Perish the thought….

God I wish Major would just shut up!!!

All day long there has been endless precision of outraged remainer politicians who have planted their flag firmly in the EU side when it should be in the camp of the United Kingdom.  I cannot understand how 2 former Prime Ministers, a former Attorney General and other individuals are talking down Boris and his decision if necessary to rip up the hated written agreement.   It is an eye opener to see just how little some of these so called politicians actually think of Great Britain…guess becoming an MP meant they didn’t have to get a proper job in some cases as actually some of them have never had a proper job.

I cannot stand watching John Major as he signed us up to Maastricht and effectively screwed this country over without so much as a bye your leave, and then he dares state that the word of Great Britain is all we have as our military is no longer a force…..Way to go Major….talk about putting down those brave people who defend this country, and then there is the question of the Referendum result.

The people on the Remain Side honestly thought that their side was going to win, and the most intolerant people have been the remainers ever since.  They have been intolerant to the nth degree and how many times were we told that we did not know what we were voting for…in other words we are too stupid, and then my personal dislike that the minute the vote is out we are going to hell in a hand basket.  Well they have all been proven wrong but what a testing time we Brexiters had.

When a Prime Minister makes a commitment then yes you do expect them to follow through with it, however the remainer side including Major spent 3.5 years moving heaven and earth to stop the democratic will of the people.  We were promised by both the Prime Minister and the traitorous parliament that they would enact the will of the people and then promptly did everything it could to reverse or revoke it. 

Major states that we would be a laughing stock on the world stage, but because of the likes of him and all the others who are working with a foreign entity have already done that, and I read with some amusement that the EU is crying out that we are laughing at them…oh boo hoo….live with it mardies. The inability of parliament to see through the will of the people has shown that when it suits them the politicians do not mind lying and revoking to get their way, and they themselves have shown when it is against what they want they can quite happily cancel any contract if they can find their slippery tentacles inside it…..Well the General Election put paid to that.

Talking about the General Election, you would think sitting on the fence Starmer would at least kid voters in the North that he has gotten over the Brexit vote but nope….he has joined the clamber of those politicians who really have no say in the matter to open their mouths and disrespect not on the Prime Minister but the will of the people.

Major can not be trusted.  He lied and hid the Maastricht treaty from the people and never mind the betrayal of trust against his wife.  After all, when he was supposed to be running the country he was too busy having Currie…….so his concern for the country was not an issue then.

Why is it that old boring mundane politicians cannot just disappear and stay of the media circus as they are former for a reason, as the British public kicked him out of office at the first opportunity and he hangs round now like a bad smell and no amount of air freshener will get rid of him.

Boris is doing what the people want and the more the hysterical remainers scream and pull their hair out, they will be doing self-flagellation through the streets next….they need to remember he is acting out the will of the people and a British Prime Minister is at long last showing that he has balls and is putting this country first.  What a pity we have had to wait some 30 years since Baroness Thatcher to actually have one but better late than never, and how refreshing to know that unlike Major, May and Grieve this man of the people is working for the people.
