As a sage observer remarked elsewhere:
"Balls and his doxy, Frou Frou Trixibell, behaved so badly over housing expenses that, in a better ordered country, they'd be in jail."

"‘tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished.

One of the more hilarious events of my retirement is the arrival of the Christmas Bonus. Instituted by Harold Wilson it has never been increased. I feel sure that £10 now doesn't quite buy what £10 bought back in the 1960s. I wonder how much it costs to send out millions of £10's. I also enjoy a "free" TV licence. It's not that I don't have to buy one, it's just that I don't have to pay for it. Someone must be paying for it I suppose. It's rather odd, as on my 75th birthday I felt just the same as I did the day before. And I didn't watch BBC anyway - on either day. Mind you, I am saving someone some money - I don't use my "free" bus pass anymore. The bus company has scrapped the service! The county council has reduced the amount it pays for the concessionary fare, so the bus company has taken their ball and run off. I would like to thank Balls and Cameron for the amusement they provide every breakfast time. End of rant.
