the financial industry F***ed them selves up.
Pedantic maybe, but the banks, not the whole industry F'd themselves up. I work for a financial institution and we are fine.
For now maybe. HBOS was fine on a Monday, by Friday it was in the shit big style. nothing is safe at the moment.
Or is it? I took great comfort in the week in the fact that despite the general concensus that we are all **** and will soon be plunged back into becoming hunter gatherers or starve, our ilustrious (and unelected leader) still had time to discuss the potty mouths of a a pair of arses who are overpaided to 'entertain' us and used a naughty word on the radio last week. This despite presiding over the biggest financial meltdown since the Wall Street Crash and the fact that our our God bothering chums over the pond are about to elect a new world leader on behalf of the 'free' world. Nice to know he's got things sufficiently under to control to comment on such trivial matters.
As for the country going down the pan, well we've been in decline since old Queen Vic snuffed it- things have just accelerated somewhat over the last ten years.
I'm also afraid moving to OZ is probably not far enough away now that most Geordies have now heard of it, there's hardly a builder or taxi driver left and it's only a matter of time before we hear that chipper phrase 'alreet hinny' on neighbours. I for one will making a complaint to the broadcasting standards waffen the first time this happens.
We really are quite **** arn't we?
