So far, today has been one of those days when the wish to post has been most noticeable by its absence, however in an attempt to possibly raise a smile amongst my readers I have been scouring quotations, both attributed and unattributed, which may provide reasons for the nadir to which this country appears to have sunk. (some quotations have been slightly modified)
Funny how it takes but weeks, even days, to throw billions at mismanaged banks and bankrupt countries - but its taken years, with no end in sight, to agree on matters vital to: the care of the elderly, fixing the NHS, providing a future fair for all, etc etc etc.

It seems that our country holds the key to the energy crisis with shale gas. Folks, we've held the key for years now - all we needed to do was harness the rotational energy emanating from Orwell's grave.
With apologies to those who may already be acquainted with the above.
