mate, total pittance lol, had no lecky for a day or two last week so ate everything in the fridge freezer as it warmed up, the cat was well chuffed, she got some mackerel I don't remember how long it had been frozen there in the ice at the back 😂
I sit in the park in the day, feed crazy pigeons, they love pork scratchings if you can believe that, chat to smack heads and street drinkers, homeless whatever, go library for books and dvd's if you remember what they were lol.

Life is fantastic, just can't afford the shiny things I used to love wasting money on. Winter is pretty rough though, gas costs a fortune so I usually put a couple of hoodies on and a wooly hat.
I've been round the world and always smile thinking of the dirt poor people I've met around the world, 2 young boys in particular no more than 8 years old, proudly catching fish with a homemade spear and taking the family tea home that night.
My life is absolutely rich compared to 90%+ of people in the world, damn sure about that 👍

I know some homeless people, well ex-homeless people now, and also some smackheads that are the salt of the earth.

People are people after all.

Don't know about life being fantastic all the same, some gadgies are pretty much circling the drain as we speak.

90% of the people in the world are not our dilemma so much as the 66.04 million souls that already reside here.

Futures not bright after Brexit, i wish i fecking was, and if anyone can screw it up, even more, is Boris for sure.

It's like giving a Monkey a Petrol can and packet of Swan Vestas.

Monkey joke lol 👍
I walk snail slow with my sticks takes ages to get places, some old lady overtook me today and she laughed that that is rare as hens teeth for her lol.
I have to stop every 20 or so paces because I'm using all my upper body to stay upright and it is full on exertion, no way will I ever get fat, anyway skid row back alleys are my shortcuts so I stop and recover with street people all the time, fair play, even offer me a share on their booze while I share a rolly or two, good people just in a worse mess than me, I have a roof.
I know fit healthy men who won't walk the same streets because fear of the scary men, ####sake, even gangs of hoody lads smile and part like Moses and the sea to let me through, got #### all for them to nick, and I'm just old guy with sticks, could be their dad ffs 😂

Surely though if wee Nic flicked the bird at Westminster and called a properly organised free referendum, then won, then UK in the eyes of the world just couldn't stop it? They may bitch about the legality of it or whatever bit a leave vote is a leave vote, and I'm passionate about such democracy issues over and above my political considerations personally.

Now my issue is this;

The people of the UK as the United kingdom, voted to leave the EU, however the people of Scotland as a nation voted to remain.

I think the people of my village voted to remain too. Not sure why we should be treated differently in the collective democratic process.

Your village though is not a nation.

Lol, I'm one of them poor people and life is alright, sure I miss having loads of money back in the pre injured legs days but I love life. I don't have to pay council tax (property taxes to US friends), I get £68 per week unemployment insurance and have to find gas, electric, water, food and whatever else I need out of that. Food costs #### all from Aldi, pasta, spuds, fresh fruit blah, and I only have one pint with mates on the weekend, today was a bottle of Bishops Finger ale at my mates house and he gave me a lift home so bonus.
I buy bacci from the dodgy corner shop tax free, make a pouch last 3 and half weeks, and treat myself to a smoke off my best mate who is a trader, and usually on tick lol, but he never keeps count because trust, and I often say no mate I had more the other day remember 😂
I pay my neighbour in a smoke or whatever to use his wifi and everything is good.
Charity shop bargain clothes, public library, free health care and prescriptions because my income is lower than whatever universal credit is, free dentist, and soon a disabled bus pass so I can travel all of England for free!

Much respect to you..... for many I think poverty is a state

of mind. I was around when there was rationing so it was possible to

be hungry even if you had the money. I dont really know how so many

people are going hungry when the 'new' problem is obesity.

I often wonder who these poor people starving are, my mobile phone cost 8 quid from Argos, and is £1 a week top up for 25 minutes, 50 texts, and 10meg internet, which is cool coz I can read ATS all day as it is text based browser lol again.
Yep, I remember poverty in the 70s and 80s, piss poor, no central heating, darned clothes, 3 basic meals a day, beans on toast, jam sandwiches for school, I'm nowhere near that poverty, and although I've been a higher rate tax payer living the good life, I still don't feel poor, just can't buy all the shiny things I want.
...and being a cripple ain't the easiest to even get a job interview, it is what it is, but I'm still rich as ##### compared to 90%+ people in the world 👍

Props and much luck to you ...... you are rich in spirit and that is priceless.

Ah thank you

I'm just a normal bloke though lol, my mates know I'm piss poor so every now and then I even get top cooked food unexpectedly delivered in Chinese takeaway containers like I'd rang JustEat or something!

You remember rations?! Wow, I've seen my late gran's old ration books, totally puts things into perspective! I try to sync my shop with reduced discount times, end of the night, got 5 loaves of bread for 50p a few weeks ago, proper deal, they went in the freezer quick sharp! I buy food on a maximum carb/protein per £ basis, poundland is brilliant for that, tinned meat or fish, rice and pasta. I eat like a king compared to the majority of people in the world!

Life is brilliant in the summer, hardly use any gas just for a shower, its proper dangerous getting in and out of my bath though so a good friend picks me up and lets me shower in the serviced flats she manages, always one empty and they have wet rooms so I can just crawl in hands and knees and sit on the floor under glorious hot water bashing me like an Atlantic storm on steroids ❤️❤️❤️

The day I whine about being skint is if I can't afford food, and actually feel hungry. Like I said £68 a week is my gig, £9.71 a day, if anyone is starving on that then I genuinely don't understand why, unless they have really chaotic lives and complex needs.
I did get a nice suit off a local charity a while back though, mine was looking a bit tired for job interviews, but many applications since then I still haven't had the chance to strut like a peacock and sell myself...but as Del Boy would say, this time next year Rodders we'll be millionaires! Lol 😂

So so glad I was born in Britain, life is good.

Been noticing lately that the remainers are ramping up their fear mongering I was

watching the press review on 'sky' when it very soon became obvious that

Rachael Shabi one of the reviewers was a remainer. Every sentence began with

"A no deal" (prefaced with)

# Irresponsible...

# off a cliff edge..

# calamitous..

# catastrophic..

# regressive ..

I thought she was supposed to be a comedian ?????

Some of the tweets on her performance......

1)..*How do you expect viewers to take Press Review seriously, with her spouting her Marxist theories?

2) *Well done Mark Wallace for attempting politely to correct the depressing avalanche of negativity

3) *What makes all you moaners think you are right.FFS shabi shut up interupting..The default when triggering A50 was to leave without a deal.

4) *Negativity ! - The woman is barking !
She said water will be in short supply !
So the EU will be having a sneaky word with the big guy
to stop the rain falling ?
She may get her water from Perier, I get mine from the tap

5) * describing a no deal scenario says that there will be no water, no food, no medicines, and God knows what else - what a very sad individual and such a pessimist.

6) *Im sick of these disingenuous remainers whining no one voted for no deal,we voted to LEAVE on the terms of A50 that parliament voted to apply,it clearly states if NO DEAL is agreed after 2yrs we leave without one,it doesn't say you have to accept a # deal or remain

7) *The extremists are not those carrying out the Referendum result, but those Remainers who refuse to accept a democratic result

I actually voted remain, but took the hit and accepted it as the wish of the people. I believed the worst case scenario depicted by the remain camp of no deal brexit when I voted, so I'm sure every leaver who read the same doom porn as me knew full well what leave could mean if it went proper tits up.

I have since embraced it and feel excited with plucky in yer face confidence in our people on these north Atlantic rocks.
BbC is awful with their bias often, from picking the absolute worse pictures of leavers mid speech or whatever, to key words like crash out, damage, struggle, and basically doom preceding terms like after brexit.

Forecasters said wed be doomed after refusing the Euro, they were wrong, they said we'd be doomed as soon as a leave vote happened, they were wrong, Obama said back of the queue peasants to us for trade deals with US, Trump says, cool lets make some coin together playing the world for it...
I could go on, it's lame as ####, I got sick of doom fear after watching "Threads" by the BBC when I was a kid, never mind IRA, reds under the bed, stock market crashes, Muslims, wmd's, ISIS, now Iran and Russia again lmao, its fooking boring, grow a spine and front it like we own it. I'm even liking BJ more and more every speech he makes, #### you Junker and Barnier...and pretty boy Macron, go #### yourself...Vive la Bretagne :p

Edit, Mandella effect or whatever the #### they call it be rammed, the BJ effect is same as Trumpilitis, once infected with that self belief it is addictive! Go team UK, # yeah, believe in ourselves 👍👍👍

The only people any of us want to be fighting with reside in gated estates or in Ivory Towers.

Same pricks that should have been swinging from the lampost sometime around 2008.

Never happen whilst we squabble and rage against ourselves.

That's just divide and conquer 101, and the same tactic "they" used to subdue and hold sway over 2/3 of the World.

What chance do any of us have really?

there is no rage among my people between us though, except remain people are angry, and I've even been ostracized since embracing the new reality after the vote not going my way.
Remained now seem more nuts to me than the original leavers 😱

Plenty of hatred across the nation for the scum that resides in old London town and wags the politicians tail from behind the curtain, not just for the Tories.

Brexit is simply the ultimate distraction.

"They" will rape this nation even harder and make us say thank you for the privilege.

What's nuts is that they will get away with it and we will pay the price.

Politics is dead and broken, Boris is simply the icing on a very Dickensian shaped cake.

I'm more hopefully positive than that mate 👍
Only thing worse in my life right now would be actual starving so I choose to be optimistic about things out of my control and not what I voted for.

I had the great (mis)fortune to play taxi driver to my nephew and his mates the other weekend, they'd been at the Trnsmt music festival in Glasgow. If they're representative of the young people who couldn't vote in 2014 and who can now vote in a future referendum, I don't doubt that Scotland will vote for independence next time around.

I don't wish to sound melodramatic but it's a cultural change, it really is. There's now a generation of kids coming to voting age who have known nothing but a Scottish Parliament. They're seeing new institutions being created in Scotland, new ways of doing things, doing things on our own without having to rely on anyone else giving the direction. A SNP government up here is all they've ever known. And they want more, not less.

It's strange, she's portrayed down south as some evil left wing radical nazi socialist. But Sturgeon isn't seen as a radical by them at all, quite the contrary, she's seen almost as a barrier to independence because she's playing such a long game.

I'm older, I can see the pros and the cons of independence, but this new generation are a different kettle of fish altogether. I was so surprised by the things they were saying, I called my nephew's Dad (my Brother) the next day and told him I haven't felt quite so old before. He was saying he thinks it's because, for them, they've never known the Scotland we remember, shipyards and coal mines, steel works and other heavy industries. All that had been closed down, cleaned up and grassed over by the time those kids were born.

To them, all that's just pages in the history books, like the British Empire was to us when we were going through school. And that's another big difference ... they're actually being taught Scottish history now, from a Scottish perspective too. Nephew even did a history project about the Union with England Act 1707. I confess, I'd never even heard of that one. That's way better than I got ... Scottish kid, Scottish school, Battle of Hastings and Magna Carta, go figure that one out.

Scotland's changing, rapid. Don't believe me ? Watch this. I've never seen anything like it lol. A bit random, I know, but this gives you a sense of what this new generation is about. Cinammon's very pro independence. So, I reckon too, are this generation coming through.

See i did not get what i voted for, twice if I'm honest.

So I'm probably a bit short on the optimism with all they sour grapes in ma puss.

Have to ask ourselves though, do we ever get what we vote for really?

How many dirty lying bastards do we have to elect to power before we realize that there are simply not up for keeping their election promises?

If our politicians and system of government did what it said on the tin, there would be no need for these mad shenanigans. And the thing is, it's not like it worked perfectly before we entered into the EU, i simply canny see how we should expect it to be any better once we depart given the track record of the bastards in question.

Strong and stable my arse, more like weak, feeble and skint.

Which is probably the title of Jeremy Kyles next show after Halloween.
