Facebook Gobshite from June

While eating breakfast and sipping my morning cup of tea, I love to hate nothing more than look at Facebook. My mood is set for the rest of the day, based on what is posted. That’s why I’m in a bad mood all the time.

I cannot continue like this. I cannot have a website define my mental state, particularly not one that is turning into a depository of shite. Therefore, I need a release. A catharsis. And this is it. Here is a bunch of shite that I and others have spotted on Facebook during June.

PENSIONS – UNFAIR! Did you know these Government allowences? BRITISH OAP £106, Spouse allowance £25, Additional hardship £O per week, TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT £6000 ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS/REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN £250,Spouse allowance £225, Additional hardship £100 per week, TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT £29900An average OAP paid taxes and contributed to the country for 40-60 years.Repost if you agree.

FUCK ME!  Really?! BENEFITS FOR ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS?  They’re ILLEGAL immigrants. Almost by definition, they are not entitled to benefits of any kind. The clue is in the word illegal. As for asylum seekers, the amount they get depends on whether they have contributed National Insurance or whether they have E.U. family members.

Posted by an RAF type page: War dead to be driven down side streets to avoid the public.I have only received an automated reply to a request for the Minister to read the thread and replies on this subject. At 120 replies as I write this. Please scroll down to the thread to add comment to let the Minister know how we feel.
A reply: I just read about this in the Mail. Absolutely shameful!

The parade used to  travel through Wooten Bassett high street. There are children out in the street or at school. The march is a bit morbid and I can see why it might spoil a wedding. Now the parade is being moved “down side streets” where people can CHOOSE to stand and honour the fallen beside the memorial gardens that will be built or can CHOOSE not to see it. While this is difficult for everyone, at least it is a freedom of choice as to whether you want to see the coffins of dead soldiers.

So, let me get this STRAIGHT…Kelsey Grammer can end a 15yr marriage by phone, Larry King is on divorce #9, Britney Spears had a… 55hr marriage, Jesse James & Tiger Woods, while married, were having sex with EVERYONE, 53% of Americans get divorced and 30-60% cheat on their spouses. Yet, same-sex marriage is going to destroy the institution of marriage? Really? Re-post if you find this ironic……

While it is hard to disagree with the sentiment, it is not ironic. It is an awkward demonstration of hypocrisy.

A 26 year old footballer celebrates his £250,000 a week pay deal sipping pink champagne in a hot pool in Dubai. Over in Afghanistan a 24 year old soldier is sipping warm water for not much more than £250 a week in a hostile country surrounded by people who want to kill him… If you think this is an absolute joke re-post this to your status.

BASIC ECONOMICS. If soldiers weren’t willing to work on those wages and people stopped signing up for the army, the wage would increase. And if people didn’t wank over football as much, there would be less money to pay footballers. I feel as though the people posting the above status also help fund The Premier League, but maybe I’m generalising.
