Oh Well!

Oh Well.

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.

Oh Well!

Still, could be worse, eh?

Macy said...

I predict a riot by 2011. Think I'll quite enjoy manning the barricades here in Cheesetown.

Geoff said...

I love Peter Green, howay!

Still, the future's looking up with Dave C and his mates.

I already watched that over at your other place earlier in the week!!


And HNY to you and yours and them all


Malc said...

I was beginning to think I was the only one who hated 'Noughties'. I feel so much better now.
Happy New Year mate.

Rog said...

Dave: Yep!

Macy: Womanning the Barricades. Not with Alex Salmond I hope.

Geoff: You're such a wet blanket!

Ziggi: Thankyou and the same with knobs on.

Malc: If we stick together we can take the Noughtie Step! Guid Hogmanay to your lot and the piglets.

Roses said...

Happy New Year to you and Mrs Rhine (Lily and Oz too).

Hope 2010 is filled with lots of fun and frolicks.


Christopher said...

Happy New Year, Rog, everyone's favourite pundit.

And Mrs Rine. And Oz.

Bonne année, Lil.

Rog said...

Roses: Bonne année to you and boy. I'm getting a bit past frollicks.

Christopher: Bon chance mon ami! Let's hope for a splendid new decade of decadence!

KAZ said...

So glad you made the right choices.
Hope Mrs Rine did as well
PS: I can't sing I ain't pretty and my legs are thin.

Rog said...

Kaz: That's not what I've heard. Well, 2 out of three!

in 1969 Fleetwood Mac were booked to play a gig at Halifax's Rugby League ground.Thousands of us went & waited in the rain for them.They never showed.Turned out they had arrived in the town.Got totally pissed in a pub & never made it to the ground! That's Show Business!

Rog said...

Tony: I saw Dylan in the Isle of Wight - he turned up was equally dissappointing!
