After another landline breakdown, the engineers have been and as it now stands 5 separate lengths of the cable run between here and the exchange have now been replaced over the last 3 months, plus the connector at the pole which was green with furry growth. I now have the lowest downstream attenuation in ages (34db) and a download speed around 6,000-7,000 Kbps. However it is calm right now, the real test of the repairs will be the next windy/stormy period, so we shall see.
The Atos/DWP fake medical passed aided by the good ship diazepam, it lasted 20 mins and the doctor (because he was one, I checked his GMC reg) seemed ok, even apologetic and supportive by the end. However the Lima software creates the report which goes to a bureaucrat so they can make it mean whatever they want in order to achieve their targets. Woohoo ain’t the methods of private ‘healthcare’ being used to destroy welfare and the NHS great?
Occupy Wall street goes on in magnificent fashion and North Wales Against Cuts Bangor are organising to support and enhance the general strike in the UK on November 30th (and good luck to those blocking the bridge tomorrow). What’s interesting about Liam Fox’s troubles are not his probably closeted relationship but he was the UK vanguard (Atlantic Bridge indeed) of ALEC, already a neocon and general scumbag (hey cool, yeah why don’t I help you exterminate Tamils my rich racist Sri Lankan government friends) he was to be the conduit for the corporate dictatorship agenda of this shadowy US conspiracy to destroy democracy. And to be fair it is also of interest he trained and practiced as a doctor, thus showing the Shipman and Mengele’s there is competition for the biggest evilest medical hack title. Speaking of scumbag medicos, Baroness Murphy, a magnificent study in arrogance and elitism, I’m sure even -fictional- fellow psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter would be pretty impressed with her level of superiority and disdain for those who don’t have second homes in Italy where they farm olives. I await her self help book to be entitled -Have you tried being rich and ignorant like me? That makes you happy you scrounging fuckbags.

But all going well we should see a depression alleviated by more wars leading to record profits for the 1%, you may be required to suffer/die/kill to enable this. But is this really such a great price to pay to ensure that seventh mansion gets the much needed platinum plated solar panels so the billionaire owner thinks they are a caring person? Honestly it’s like oligarchs occasionally driving a Prius isn’t enough for some people.
So fingers crossed we drop the Human Rights Act for humans or cats (because policy is so dreary when it can’t victimise, threaten and kill you pesky unrich humans) and please do try not to be shocked that arms dealers might occasionally be the teensy weensiest liar-y Apache maker takes £32m grant to protect jobs – then lays off 375. That governments are more at home with war criminals than their own starving citizens. And whatever you do, don’t buy herbal viagra or credit card agreements off a passing drone (unless it’s killing you for democracy, in which case take the fake Rolex option, Bringing Prosperity To Afghanistan ™).
