I don't know about type speed. I am using an iPad, although I always use the delete key rather than allowing the auto complete to correct my typos!
As for the structure of what I said, I am very much against government waste, since I am of the opinion that certain people and projects benefit from
this wastage, that there is something behind it all that is just out of reach. They do so at the expense of the future of my people, that is, all the
people of Britain, no matter from where they may have come originally.
And not just their future either. My family and I have never been folk of means, and when we were forced to sell our crappy house, a house which
almost killed us a few times (loooong story), we had to start a business with the money, otherwise we would have been left to rot, paying exorbitant
rents with no realistic method of gaining anything back. The locksmithing business we started has been going for more than ten years, and the shop we
work out of now has been our base of operations for nearly ten years,but we started it at a bad time, just before the period when the government were
handing out bailouts to the banks, and screwing everyone else. This hit us hard, with trade dropping off and our local suppliers, some of which had
been operating for sixty years, going to the wall as well.
How we aren't a defunct company right now, is purely down to a combination of my mothers ability to pull some sort of magic out of her arse in terms
of getting the right loans at the right time despite the odds, and us managing to pull in enough work to survive, but that is all we have ever done.
Our family has caught the thin end of the wedge so many times due to factors which root back to government waste, that it is a wonder I have any
sanity left, although that point is arguable in and of itself. It is however, something I feel strongly about. Properly funded schools in my child
hood, would have allowed teachers and governors to expel the dangerous psychopaths in the schools, and promote healthy learning environments. Instead,
I learned self defence rather than mathematics and English literature. I had to teach myself the things I needed to know, by independent research at
I had to re-sit my GCSEs, because despite being capable, there is only so much attention one can pay to a teacher, when a knife in the back is a
possibility. One year in a half way stable learning environment at the college I retook the GCSE program in, saw me actually pass four subjects with a
C, and I think I would have done better if I had not been so damned TIRED from the preceding, harrowing years at primary and secondary school.
Money being vanished out from under the noses of the population, is the biggest and least discussed problem affecting this country, and yet no one
seems to want to address them. It is my belief that all the partisan political waffle, all the hate based media driven organisations and social
stigmas, help obfuscate this situation, and I really wish, hope, pray, that at some point people actually take notice of the real cancer that eats our
nation piece by piece, because I would hate to think that a generation of British citizens will wake up one day to find that even the pretence of
democracy has evaporated, leaving slavery, and I am afraid that the situation prevailing at the moment, is a damned good foundation for such a thing.
A divided population cannot confront these issues, and so we must put aside the petty differences that force our attention away from threats like
this, and meet them head on.
