Thoughts from an active pensioner who is now somewhat past his Biblical "Use-by date"

"Why just be difficult, when with a little more effort you can be bloody impossible?"

Pakistan Floods

Yesterday's news indicated that Britons were the biggest donors to the Pakistan flood relief.

I may be a cynic, but I suspect that this is a form of self-preservation - if nothing is done, millions of flood victims might come to stay with some distant relative in this country, and their Human Rights, upheld by some idiot Judge, would prevent them being sent back to where they would be homeless.

More to the point, I wonder how much has been given by their co-religionists in the Arab countries who are presently holidaying in London, living in their multi-million pound mansions.
