#Gategate

Yes the big news this weekend in the UK is that an ex public school boy thinks he’s a cut above the rest of us, shock horror!!

I refer of course to the Governments Chief Whip, Andrew Mitchell and his alleged comments towards Downing street police officers when they refused to open a gate for him.

It must really stick in his throat that he’s been forced to apologize for his actions, I mean imagine having to say sorry to a “pleb” ,but  as I said in the opening line does anyone have any doubts that our present government is full of gentleman like Mr Mitchell who think this way, they are a product of their upbringing. it’s just another example of how the class based society is still alive and well.

Another issue to arise from this, is how that odious publication the Sun has gained access to Police Reports on this matter. How has that happened, has nobody learned from Leveson?

Anyway, whilst the Islamic world decends into madness,over a film most have probably never seen, and people are losing their lives as a result, we in the UK will continue to focus on a non story, the arrogant posh boy has been made to grovel, personally I think that’s a great outcome.

Lets move on, though I suppose it’s a wee bit of a more interesting story than last weeks one about another member of the ruling elite and her breasts!

Oh, and I think the #gategate from twitter is great, it had to happen eventually 🙂

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
