Another Decade, another set of ludicrous retrospectives. Last night we had to watch the height of hypocrisy as Piers Morgan expressed his outrage at the MP's expenses scandal without a murmur of his own snout-in-trough Viglen shares episode. Countryside!
The 2000's (I refuse to use the silly "Noughties" word) were hardly a bundle of laughs for the World, with Greed, political posturing and Crass Stupidity bringing down Economies and Countries as we appeared to start paying for the exploitation and excesses of the 1990's.
It has been a quite miserable decade for the World and not something we will be able to stand up and be proud about to our Grandchildren who we are leaving in a broke, unsustainable and globally warming future.
"How are things otherwise?", I hear you ask.
Well on a personal level the 2000's have been quite simply brilliant! I've raised two fingers to small dysfunctional family businesses by leaving and starting my own, I've acquired 6 wonderfully good looking and intelligent grandchildren and moved into a nice house in the Country. And most important, I've spent it all with the ever so lovely Mrs Rine.
