SHOCKING. (19/03/13)

I was undecided whether to post today SCRIPTOR SENNEX upset me with his post. Shocking it is. I mean really sad.

I wasn’t in the best of humours after listening to the smug bastards in Westminster congratulating each other over their victory for press restraint. As is Dithery’s way he commissions an enquiry costing millions. Then ignores it’s findings. I can’t understand what they were doing Sunday night and into the early hours Monday. They have had months to sort the job. Friday Dithery does what all kids do. He spat out his dummy and threw his teddy out of his cot.

I can’t see a problem with a free press. I accept that the law wasn’t being enforced whilst Dithery was getting free use of a police horse to go courting Rebekah Brooks. Being a useless ride doesn’t draw him any sympathy from me, nor is it an excuse for getting caught playing away games.

I must admit to being envious a year ago but I really don’t want to have chatting up jail bait or gaol birds on my CV.  She has got wonderful hair….perhaps I too could have succumbed. I’m cheap…two pints of lager at eight pounds sterling tops. No Lord high advocates advice or enquiries needed. Given half a chance I’d have been there like a rat up a drain. Talking of rats and drains that Aussie Rupert has much to be deported for. Forgot his ancestors were. Bet a pound to a penny they were into sheep. It’s the curly hair what attracted him.

We already have laws that control invasion of privacy and these are now being used. I suspect the devious devils were discussing other loopholes to increase their remuneration and avoid getting caught with their filthy sticky fingers in the till.

It is still wet and cold.

_V0G5953_4_5_tonemapped_edited-1  This image is straight but you could be forgiven for thinking otherwise. I’ll commission an enquiry. Well I would if you paid and I knew a Lord Justice who would give me ten percent of the fee you are paying him. Having run guide lines over this image and listened to Clegg and Moribund…..Dithery wasn’t available as it was a Sunday night and he was too busy explaining to Samantha why after a trip to the pub he was one of her issue short.

_V0G5950_1_2_tonemapped_edited-1 Sleet this morning….Oh what fun.

Wait…….the sun came out for half an hour this afternoon.

IMG_9750_edited-1 Lambs sunbathing……Mums a mumming…..all is well with my little world and theirs.

IMG_9747_edited-1 This mite was born last night……Spring is great. In another week the lambs will start getting adventurous. They are wee Houdini. They will be bleating outside the van and hungry but can never find a way back to mum and food. The following day they will repeat the trick…..its what lambs do. Brilliant they are. I will eventually get tired of lifting them over the fence. Not long now and summer and warm rain will arrive.

Tomorrow I am away to Whitehaven. I’ve not been for weeks and could do with stocking up. I’ve spoken with the axle man and he will deliver them Sunday and combine it with a day out and Sunday lunch. There is no rush as the weather here is not of the best for axle fitting.

IMG_9745_edited-1 Waders wading…..I’ll give Bertha an outing first thing tomorrow. I’ve not been birding for a while.

Have fun.

  1. Cheer up Adrian, it can only get worse, your vices (pleasures!) will no doubt cost more after Georgie boy has his say tomorrow!

    I never had you down as a Sheep wrangler, but look on the positive side, it'll keep you warm and fit chasing those little darlings around the site!!...[;o)

    1. This weather is grim Trevor. I've stocked up on fags and booze.

      Sheep husbandry was my first weekend job. An expert at turning sheep on their backs am I.

  3. Since we hear very little if British politics I know little about it. I can tell you're not really impressed with what's going on.
    It's nice to see that you have green grass. You're a talented guy to catch the lambs and throw them over the fence.

    1. Red, they are only a day or so old so will not escape till next week. I may even take some video of them frolicking. I like sheep and lambs.

  4. Hi there - I think you will find the Rupert is now an American! He did that to be able to circumvent the American foreign ownership laws - but strangely he still thinks he has the right to choose our Government for us!

    I could swear at times!

    Cheers

    1. Gillian, they get to a week or so old and get the travel bug. These are lowland sheep so are used to being handled. The fell sheep are Holy Horrors to deal with when one gets old.

  6. My family had a story we didn't wish printing in a Murdoch title, in fact it involved five other families too, who all clobbered together to prosecute two doctors, the paper went and printed the story despite us all pleading with them not too, thus the case was thrown out, judge handed a puny fine to the paper, they sold their paper, doctors went un-prosecuted, we were thousands out of pocket and more importantly no justice...we had no effective law to preventing the story being published, need gagging? NO, need restraining...definately.

    1. Douglas, I'd not really considered the effect they can have on ordinary and innocent people. Murdoch is a despicable bloke. I never buy his publications.
      It is not difficult to draw a line...............The law is there and should be used. Contempt is a serious matter and the judge was as much to blame as the paper.
