Where’s it gone exactly?

So I lost 2 posts yesterday …Hmmmm ….god knows where …but also I hear that the global markets have lost $2 Trillion and counting …..WHERE HAS IT GONE!??? …..all we did was pop a few bits of paper in a few boxes on this little group of islands  …then we went to bed and woke up again to be informed that there were more little scribbles on the bits of paper saying this than that …..

It’s meaningless …It’s just numbers ….DON’T PANIC!!!

I have a solution to all this ….just turn ALL the tech off and on again ….wipe the slate clean  …….O in every single financial institution across the world ….then work out how many folk there are out there … get everyone to open a little account and give each person a number …the same number …Hmmmm what shall we have? ….what do you reckon? ….a million each? …….Hmmmmm no that might not be necassary …maybe 100,000 ….or keep it simple …let’s say 10,000 ….then we can all choose to spend it as we like …YEP …give us a figure …a number ….a point system and pop it into all our accounts on a monthly basis ….SORTED:D:D:D

And WHY exactly can’t that be done?

It’s just abstract figures afterall

I mean think about it ………ever heard of quantative easing? 😉

Ommmmmmmmmmmm:D:D:D

A pertinent speech on global migration

We’ve GOT to think BIG and differently on MANY levels …..how much is ‘enough’? ….what is a life of ‘success’?….what kind of world do we want for our kids?…..we ARE global ….facing global issues ….at a turning point in history …

And Yes …it’s Angelina Jolie

A celebrity but at least using her status to try to make a positive difference

The issues are not going to go away ……..as Ange says ..’If your neighbours house is on fire, it does not make you safe to lock your door’

There IS a butterfly effect

What are the root causes of our global predicament? …..it HAS to be addressed …..no’one is immune ….peace talks, sharing the wealth, thinking outside the box …’be’ing …and if possible ‘do’ ing

To quote our dear and sadly departed Jo …’We have far more in common than that which divides us’ …dont let this Brexit shit make us take our eye off the ball

ANYWAY …click below to hear Ange’s speech…off out with the boys this weekend …..

Stages of ‘divorce’

Ok have just been through this so know what it entails …..

  1. One side or the other or both are not happy
  2. You get into dialogue, communicate ….maybe through an intermediary like a marriage guidance counsellor if necassary

  3. You decide it isn’t working …..decide to seperate ….very emotional ….much turbulence with finances, living arrangements , extended family…. and the children?

  4. Eventually things settle and you go for the legal ‘divorce’ …..the ‘formal’ ending of the ‘marriage’

  5. Yep …throughout there are many ups and downs ….the children suffer ….you both end up skint ….life more of a struggle than it was before things became rocky but you all adjust and life goes on

Oh and sorry …got it wrong …it was the other way round …West Yorkshire and most of the deindustrialised areas voted ‘out’ ….Leeds central and Harrogate voted to ‘remain’ …which makes it worse ….feel pretty sad …..think I might just pack up and become a wandering nomad:(

……

Trying to find some kind of anchor in this decision ….

David Cameron PM has just been on the TV …speaking very eloquently it has to be said ….however, his position as prime minister is now untenable and he has in effect given 3 months notice …..


The governor of the  Bank of England has also been on … giving his firm and decisive message which I believe was an attempt to be reassuring as the value of the pound plummets

The journo’s seem to be in shock …..the only person who seems jubilant is Nigel Pharage leader of a right wing fringe party that coined the phrase ‘Brexit’

For the record …as you may expect …the constituency here chose to ‘remain’ …..the only areas in West Yorkshire to vote Brexit were Leeds central and Harrogate ( affluent areas) ….I foresee a swing further to the right sadly ….

Maybe I should move to Scotland …they had a unanimous ‘remain’ vote across the board and already are talking about an ‘opt out’ of the UK wide overall majority( by a hairs breadth) decision to exit the European Union …….

Again …..don’t know how I feel just now ….but better get on with my day …the world hasn’t stopped revolving …………..

yet
