I take this obligation freely, and will faithfully discharge the duties of office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.’

The enumeration of certain Rights and Liberties, shall not be construed to deny others retained by the people.

So, when writing a constitution I am writing it making a few assumptions, one is that the people are a virtuous, Christian people. This will impact on many things, one being that I don’t have a marriage clause, because in a healthy society, no one seriously considers that sodomites could wed each other, another is that I would not have women voting in this theoretical Federation, women’s suffrage has caused too much trouble and most women, are not interested in politics anyway. I did include a clause in Article II prohibiting women from voting, but was not sure if I should include it.
The preamble is the most iffy bit I think, I suppose each preamble will be different according to who writes it and among which people are having it written for them. I like the first Article, it lays down, much more clearly then say the American constitution, what is and is not allowed, the right to life specifically prohibits abortion, so that no harpy can claim she has the right to kill her child. The slavery clause also prohibits usury, this would be quite important in years to come, when banking interests are attempting, once again, to re-enslave the people, this would mean no credit cards with 20% APR, no Wonga.Com charging over 2000% interest on a short-term loan etc…
The Section IX is a lot more strict on government or enforcement agencies then is now the case in America or anywhere else I can think! It not only ensures someones house papers and effects can’t be searched without warrant, it makes the intercepting of communication, the hacking of their computers or a search of the person, something they would need a warrant for as well. Remember, this is for a theoretical situation, where we don’t have any immigrants, they all left and went home, so very little crime, a virtuous and Christian people etc, etc…
No faffing about with the right to keep and bear arms, not sure about Section XI, it is something I like the sound of, but it could be construed to allow sodomites to have their little ghettos where they hang out rainbow flags and felate each other on street corners! But it could also be used by Amish types, so I am minded to keep it! Any thoughts?
Section XVI, the reason I single out Senators as different, is because I would be attempting to establish a new aristocracy, or something approaching it.
Not sure about Article II, Section I, I want something that prohibits hordes of foreigners from trampling our lands, but, am not sure exactly how to word it!
Section II, I think with all the porn in the world, we need a censor, not someone censoring politics or blogs, but someone censoring vile images, which, are not speech!
And, most importantly, in Section III, the prohibition of political parties, this is essential. Even if this was the only thing I could actually accomplish, I would be happy if this was to pass. Political parties divide our peoples, it makes people stupid, they argue with someone they should be allying with, all because of some stupid personality or some idiotic policy, health care or pensions or some other irrelevancy. The worst thing about political parties, is that good people will say, ‘I shall vote conservative and they will stop immigration’, when they won’t, in fact they speed it up!!! Whilst lefties say, ‘I will vote Labour for peace and justice’ and they get Serbia, Sierra Leone, Iraq, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq! Not exactly getting what you voted for is it? So political parties will be abolished, people can vote, but they shall vote for the man, instead of the party!
The General Assembly, I suppose you could call it whatever you want, a parliament, a congress, a council, but I think this is an improvement on what we have now, it allows for election to the House of Delegates, but the Senate is in effect a life appointment, each Senator can appoint a successor, most I imagine would appoint a son, but they don’t have to, if they have a feckless son, they might appoint a nephew or brother or even a friend. But just in case the appointed successor is not up to it, the rest of the Senators have a say in who gets to succeed, so that the truly feckless can be kept out, again, I am assuming that we are dealing with virtuous people here! The Delegates are elected in much the same way that the American Senate used to be elected, by the states/cantons, in the American constitution, the legislatures had the rights to elect a Senator, in my constitution, the state or canton will decide for itself, so it could be the legislature electing the delegates or it could be that they are elected by a popular vote, it will be up to the constituent member of the Federation.
The composition of the Senate and Delegates, restrains ‘democracy’ without abolishing it, it is not mob rule, but it does allow for some popular influence.
Another thing I like, it the option of a referendum on possibly every Act of the Assembly, this is used in Switzerland to keep their politicians in check, it is something they hate, but must put up with, and so it would be in my theoretical Federation.
The war powers of this Federation are retrained, and unless they have been invaded or attacked, they must seek a declaration of war from the General Assembly and must have a referendum on this, with each voter who approves war, signing himself up to fight. In this theoretical Federation, voting is public, not secret, people should not be ashamed of how they vote. Secrecy was a good idea when it was introduced, but it has passed its usefulness, especially in a virtuous polity. So we would know how people vote, and so could have internet voting, but with open voting everyones voting record could be accessed, this would keep voting fraud down and we could see who voted themselves into the army.
Also a special war tax would be imposed on everyone, this would ensure only a truly popular war could be fought for any length of time. No more Iraqs or Afghanistans or Serbias or Somalias or Vietnams! Unless people don’t mind the tax, and volunteering to fight!
Section XI has one of the most important clauses, and that is;‘No tax shall be laid on incomes, capital gains, inheritances, property or gifts of an individual or family’ This ensures that no government can pile tax upon tax, ones income profits, inheritance, property and gifts belong to one, not the government, and with this, they shall be powerless to take your money. I specifically make this about individuals and families, so that corporations, can still be taxed.
The government is also prohibited from creating a national debt, this is one of the central powers that modern states have, and it is one mine, shall not have.
I’m not a fan of copyright or patent laws, it seems the super rich use this to squeeze more money out of the poor for no reason other than they had something developed in their labs fifty years ago. I don’t really think that is right! Also, I hate Hollywood, anything that hits their pockets has got to be good!
And so onto Article V, instead of a president, I have a council of nine, kinda like the Venetian one, but without the Doge! The office of president, along with the Supreme Court seem to me, to be the greatest weaknesses in the current American system, between them they dominate that country, which they should not do. My system would lessen the possibilities of a Lincoln or a Roosevelt or a Tony Blair or an Obama, with more than one leader, it diffuses power and could contain a danger like those above. Although at least six of the nine Consuls would have to agree on everything, they could pardon or honour anyone they wish.
Another important one, is the Supreme Court, the Judges have terms, so can’t be as almighty as the American version!
And another office I would introduce is the Tribune of the people, a council of five tribunes, elected by lot, so that possibly anyone could serve in this position for a ten-year term, I don’t prohibit further terms, because the likelihood of being chosen twice by lot is highly unlikely! They would have power to appeal to the Assembly and the Consulate, they could investigate government, they could make a fuss and embarrass people, they could bring issues to trial and make recommendations for legislation, not all-powerful, but a good speed bump for those greedy for power.
In describing the Cantons and their powers, it states unequivocally that each can leave the Federation at any time and for any reason, with this and the fact that the army is the militias of the cantons, one would hope that no American civil war situation could arise. Each canton could have its own sort of government, monarchial, direct democracy, representative etc…And most importantly, each Canton may restrict immigration into their cantons, no automatic right of abode. This could be a great firewall against any future mass migrations, as only some cantons, one would hope, are stupid enough to allow immigrants into their cantons, most others could insulate themselves from this, with this power.
Overall, there is little democracy in this, which I think is only good, the Tribune is there by lottery to stand up for peoples rights and against power, the courts are elected by the Assembly, but only for one term, the Senators are appointed, but only with the concurrence of the other Senators, the delegates are elected, but they are representative only of a state or canton, not a constituency, but they are influential in who they elect, the Consuls and the Judges as well as confirming the appointments made by the Consuls.
It seems a well-balanced constitution, but if there is anything you think needs alteration or revision, leave a comment!
I know this is not really the problem in the world today, it is the spirit of the people, the faith of nations or lack thereof that is degrading us more and more, but it was something I decided to have a go at anyway, to try to create a method, whereby no one could be all that powerful, and no one man could be seen as a leader, they way Cameron or Obama are seen, or given the amount of power they have.
This is my hypothetical constitution for a federation of our peoples, does not need to be giant or tiny, but here it is!
Constitution of the Federation
KNOW THAT BEFORE GOD, for the health of our souls and those of our ancestors and heirs, to the honour of God and the exaltation of His Holy Church, we set out the following Constitution.

I have been reading quite a bit about the shooting of a Trayvon Martin in Florida, initially marketed as a racist shooting of an innocent black kid. Well, not being American, and not being au fait with the way things happen over there I was happy to just read and take in people’s opinions, that was until that frothing at the mouth, raving lunatic Sinead O’Connor got involved.
The raving lunatic once had a good voice, perhaps she still does, she sang a few ditties in the nineties and then went stark raving bonkers, she had some issues about the Catholic Church, so much so, she got herself ordained as a priest by some other stark raving lunatic. She went through a Lesbian phase and married a few blokes, said some things I’m sure she thought sounded deep and interesting and, well no one really takes any notice of her anymore due to her obvious demonic possession!
So, some black kid gets creamed in America! Happens all the time, however this time the slime ball MSM decide that it’s a racist killing, how they did this, I have no idea, and as I’ve pointed out I’m not really in a position to express an opinion. The stark raving lunatic aforementioned, has decided to stick her oar in, and embarrassingly seeming to take it upon herself to speak for every Irishman! That crazy bitch does not speak for me, nor ‘everyone’ in Ireland!
‘I would like to extend my very deepest sympathies to the family and other loved ones of murdered teenager, Trayvon Martin. I am very sad today (and am certain the whole of Ireland is) to learn of poor Trayvon’s terrifying ordeal and horrified by the fact his known and named and admitted killer has not been arrested, despite the crime having taken place a month ago. This is a disgrace to the entire human race.’
Nope, Im not sad, this sort of crap happens all the time! and if you had read even the most basic accounts of the story, would see it was not some cold-blooded killing!
‘For those out there who believe black people to be less than pure royalty, let me inform you of a little known, but scientifically proven, many times over, FACT. Which after reading, you will hopefully feel both very stupid and very sorry. For you dishonor your own mothers and grandmothers.
EVERY human being on earth, no matter what their culture, creed, skin colour, or nationality, shares one gene traceable back to one African woman. Scientists have named it ‘The Eve Gene’. This means ALL of us, even ridiculously stupid, ignorant, perverted, blaspheming racists are the descendants of one African woman.’
Nope, wrong again Sinead, they definitely are not ‘pure royalty’, I won’t allow myself to get carried away, so I will stick to facts, they are the crime problem in America, England and now increasingly, Ireland. Also, your pathetically simple-minded adoption of the ‘Out of Africa THEORY‘, would be funny if so many people did not actually take it as seriously as you do.
‘One African woman is the mother of all of us. Africa was the first world. You come from there! Your skin may be ‘white’.. because you didn’t need it to be black any more where you lived. But as Curtis Mayfield said.. “You’re just the surface of our dark, deep well”. So you’re being morons. And God is having the last laugh at your ignorant expense.’
Again, Sinead, you are wrong, there was no ‘one African woman’, if you bothered to keep up with the theories postulated by anthropologists, you would see there is an ‘Out of Europe theory’ an ‘Out of Asia theory’, there is even another theory which suggests there were multiple areas were we came from, got that Sinead? You really think we have anything much to do with Africans? Really? If so, I would invite you to go and live in The Congo, or maybe Haiti, I hear they are wonderful places to bring up children!
‘If you hate black people, its yourself you hate. And the mother who bore you. If you kill or wish ill on black people, its yourself you kill and wish ill on. As well as the mother who bore you.’
Again, more childish nonsense, I don’t ‘hate’ anyone, well not many people, I don’t ‘hate’ races, I dislike being around them if they act like animals!
‘When you dishonor the the utter glory and majesty of black people, you lie. Your heart lies to you and you let it. Despite seeing every day, all your life, how you and your country would be less than wonderfully functioning and inspiring to the world, without the manifold and glorious contributions made by the descendants of African slaves, who did not by the way actually ask to go to America and leave their future families there to be disrespected for eternity.’
She is really getting crazy here, sounds like she is fantasising about rogering a black guy!
‘What are you doing hating yourself by hating your brothers and sisters who daily show you nothing but inspiration and love, despite having NOTHING, in their own country? Despite having barely a chance of anything, because of racism. Despite being granted no ‘permission’ for proper self-esteem.’
Blacks showing whites love? Is she aware of the Knoxville horrors? has she heard of the white boy set on fire by negroes? If you think being gang raped, tortured, blinded, dismembered whilst alive and left to bleed to death is love, then yes, blacks love whites, if you think, stealing someones goods is love, then yes, blacks love whites, if you mean, loving free sheeeet, then yes, blacks love whites!
‘These beautiful people continue to believe in and even manifest Jesus Christ better than you do. That alone could stand as the greatest reason your racism is blasphemy, were it not for all the other reasons.’
Sinead, firstly, blacks are NOT beautiful! In fact they are really really ugly, have you seen black women? Again, whatever floats your boat, but really? You think mounds of fat is beautiful? You think big lips and brillo pad hair is beautiful? You think massive boobs draped on a massive belly are attractive? You are weird!
‘These people you hate and fear ARE the body of Christ, just as we all are. Every child, woman or man. And they know it. Maybe thats why you cant bear to look at them. Because you see Jesus Christ and you cant stand the light.’
Again, Sinead, you are wrong, the CHURCH is the body of Christ, not some feral niggers! If a black man becomes and remains a Christian, which entails rejecting everything that comes natural to him, then yes he can be a part of it, but that is rare!
‘Stop this ridiculous and uneducated attitude. You would be dead without black people. Think of all the greatest music ever composed. The greatest songs. The greatest inspirational heroes.. Muhammad Ali, Mandela, Martin Luther King, Harriet Tubman, Soujourner Truth, Bob Marley, Nina Simone, Curtis Mayfield. So many absolute angels, sent from God.’
Nope, wrong again, there would be a lot more people alive today if we didn’t have them. Greatest music ever? Mozart, Handel, Puccini, Vivaldi, Wagner, nope, no niggers there! Muhammad Ali or Cassius Clay as he should be known as, was just some worthless nigger who happened to be a boxer, Mandela is a terrorist who was a puppet used to destroy South Africa and the great Afrikaner people. The others that I recognise are singers, Bob Marley another worthless nigger from Jamaica, he lived in England, did very well for himself and hated whites, I know this as I used to listen to his music when I was a teen! I though It was cool listening to a nigger!
‘Without the inspiration of these people many millions of so-called ‘white’ people, including myself would not have had the strength to pay the price of life.’
It’s funny how blacks are black but whites are ‘so called ‘white”. And whats that nonsense about not having ‘the strength to pay the price of life’? What is she smoking?
‘And black youth in America. I’m talking to you here too. I love you. So I don’t mean to sound cross, I’m just being a mother.. Why are you killing each other? Why are you hating yourselves? You are the most important people God ever sent to this earth, every man, woman and child among you! Don’t let uneducated people win and take your self-esteem or your esteem for each other, and make you kill each other. over guns, drugs, bling, or any other nonsense.’
The most important people God sent to this Earth? Who invented most things? Who sends aid to whom? Who causes the crime in the West? Which is better, Haiti or Switzerland?
‘You are now entering YOUR version of a sort of civil rights movement and you’re gonna see history being made in what has certainly the profoundest potential to become THE most wonderful country on earth. Because soon ALL ‘isms’ and ‘sits” will end. including racism, as the people of the earth begin to understand, we are all one.’
Well, this is one thing that you might be partially right on, the negroes probably will go ape over the next few months, but I think it is whites, who will start to understand that it is they who are under attack, pretty soon the whites could ditch the ‘isms’ and unite against the traitors and niggers . And no Sinead, we won’t understand we are all one, the opposite will be nearer the truth!
‘We came from one mother. We are all brothers and sisters. And we CAN get beyond this ILLUSION of separateness. With prayer and love. It CAN change. It WILL change. And YOU guys (young people of all kinds) are the ones who are gonna GENTLY change it. And you know where it starts? With MUSIC.’
Nope, wrong again Sinead, although I must say you are serving the NWO people very well, well actually you’re not, because you are so far out there! But you are right that we can solve this through love and prayer, love of our people, and love can manifest itself in protecting our people come what may, we will pray to God for deliverance from the niggers and the elites, whilst fighting them!
‘Don’t be guided by rap. Gangsta or otherwise. Sure.. enjoy it.. adore it.as I do.. but realize this.. rap ain’t about your civil or spiritual rights, baby boys and girls. It.. along with most music nowadays.. is about falsenesses and vanities. Bling, drugs, sex, guns and people- dissing. Its giving you the message you ain’t ‘good enough’ if you don’t have bling and ting.. and money. Or if you’re not what it deems ‘sexy’.’
Well, this is actually your first piece of common sense! I agree with most of this except that I HATE all this ‘music’.
‘Go back to strong black musical guides who left you information in the 60s and 70s. when they were living through the civil rights struggle. Curtis Mayfield. The Impressions. Nina Simone, Mahalia Jackson. Sing back the Holy Spirit ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, as those artists did.’
Well I suppose I can’t condemn you for trying to get them to go back to singing half decent music, at least those singers aren’t offensive.
‘Forget bling. Forget “Get Rich Or Die Trying”. That is an evil message. Evil my dears is only life backwards. Turn it the right way up. With music. The messages American black youth are being given through music are not about the spiritual and therefore strong and conquering but PEACEFUL making of YOUR country into the wonderful place it secretly is and can be.. BECAUSE OF YOU, and BY YOU!!’
Again, you are giving relatively good advice, although don’t be surprised when they ignore you!
‘You know not how you are adored, appreciated, valued, loved, cried for,smiled for, prayed for, all over the world. You know not how much inspiration and uplift-ment of heart you give to millions just by your presence on earth.’
Nope, I don’t know anyone who cries for them, and unless you are inspired by mass looting, gang rape, senseless murder and wanton violence, I don’t know who could be!
‘These musical guides will give you self-esteem. When you have self-esteem you can achieve anything. You can stand in the street as many did yesterday and change your country peacefully and with song. Chant down Babylon as the Rastas say. Rastafari will also give you self esteem. Investigate it.’
Right! Those Rastafarians are so wise aren’t they? Yeah, what is it, the former Emperor of Ethiopia is some sort of prophet or God? How did that work out for him?
‘You will notice, my beautiful sons and daughters, when you study, as you must, footage of all civil rights gatherings, how singing and music and sound and voice and the Holy Spirit were all employed and were so much part of the energy which moved things along.. just as running was in the South African gatherings I saw on tv in my own childhood, which inspired me to survive my own horrors.’
Oh yes, the communist inspired and instigated uprisings against decent white rule, how has that worked out?
‘What you listen to musically and whether or not you employ the Holy Spirit’s highest will for your life is whats gonna make you transcend all you’re having to suffer (the worst of which is low self-esteem.. or esteem based upon material ‘success’ or ‘sexiness’)) as a result of being the descendants of people who didn’t ask to be stolen and leave you where you are. Delete bling. Get conscious with your music. Demand conscious music from your artists. Go back to the artists who left you proper guidance.’
Sinead, you are an ignoramus as well as stark raving mad! All you have to do is a cursory read of even a Wikipedia entry on slavery and you will realise that the Africans sold the slaves to us in the first place! And please read my last post, ‘Slavery still alive and well in Africa’!
‘We, musical artists are too silent on important stuff. And it is our job to be the gate-keepers of truth. ALL the people of this earth must come together eventually and see that we are one. ALL artists must stand up. Black, white, yellow, green, pink, fucking polka dot.. and be a light in these times.’
Nope, you are not silent, I wish you were Sinead, you’ve been like a clanging bell since I was small, bleating about this and that, and your mates in the ‘industry’ are just as bad, Bono, Sting, Paul McCartney and his insufferable wives, John Lennon and his insufferable wife, et al…Also You are not the gatekeeper of anything, you are an entertainer, that’s it, you are the modern equivalent of a court jester, so get off your high horse! Also, this sick crap about us all coming together and being one, that is what we fight against, and you and your kind will only achieve this over our dead bodies!
‘The world is going to shift massively this year.. spiritually speaking. Musical artists are to be a massive part of that shift. Get up, lets all of us. And light Jah fire.. and BE lights.’
You could be right, but it will not shift the way you envisage!
‘Where’s the fire gone from music? Where is the love? the oneness? The knowing that music CAN and WILL move things in the right spiritual direction without hatred or violence? We must box clever. Sing the devil to sleep at your feet. Thats what Curtis teaches. He is the master of ALL musical masters. forget, forget, forget and forget again bling and guns and drugs and the worship of fame and money. Its time to wake up. We KNOW the power of music. Why aren’t we using it to change anything important?’
Maybe you don’t use it because you are a demented old witch?
‘Musicians all over the world should now gently demand this child’s killer be arrested immediately and the family of Treyvon Martin be immediately apologized to upon bended knee. Frankly. I myself would like an apology! America is a country I love and adore. what this man has done is un-American in the most horrific extreme.’
Shut up taking about things you don’t understand, this is more than some luvvie nonsense, this is about justice, if you think you are capable of being, judge, jury and executioner in this case, then you are more demented than I ever thought. You know nothing about this case you tired old hag!!!
‘Him not being arrested is extremely embarrassing and does absolutely NOT paint the true picture of of a country and a people who for the 90% majority are the kindest, most loving, intelligent, and wonderful people you could know.’
Oh, at last, after this epic rant, she actually states 90% of Americans are good, why couldn’t you have put that at the beginning you insufferable has been?
‘Please.. ALL Americans should deplore this crime. As should ALL people of ALL nations. And deplore the fact this man has not been arrested. All Irish people should do the same. And I ask that we here in Ireland should express through our American embassy that we would like to see this man arrested this very minute. Because racism is not acceptable. Nor is vigilantism. And this was very clearly in no way at all a case of self-defence.’
Firstly, It is not a crime, none has been committed, despite the heavy-handed intervention by the king nigger Obama, and his vizier nigger Holder. Second it is not up to us to arrest him, and it is none of our business you stupid woman! Thirdly, it is not up to the American government to listen to some has been ditty queen from Ireland and take her views as sacrosanct! Also, how do you know it wasn’t self-defence?
‘I leave you with some lyrics of Curtis Mayfield’s which I feel are appropriate for this situation. I am certain Curtis would have wanted to contribute to discussion on the issue of Treyvon’s murder and the condition of young black people in America today.. so here goes.. the song is called This Is My Country.. from the album of the same name.’
You get the idea. This raving lunatic seems to think she is an expert in American Law, she seems to think she speaks for the Irish people, most of whom wouldn’t have even heard of this case, and she seems to think black Americans will care what she has to say! The gall is amazing, the arrogance of such a discredited, weird, has been, is breath-taking!
As I wrote, I don’t know enough to say anything directly about this case, as it is still ongoing, surely, non Americans should keep their mouths shut while we see what happens? not according to this frothing at the mouth odd ball!
Sinead O’Connor is an extreme example of the luvvies we are cursed with, it is not unusual for these sorts of people to make demented, ignorant remarks, but when some crazy old hag like O’Connor makes them, and includes such glaring falsehoods as she does here, they should be taken to task, if she loves niggers so much, all she has to do is go into central Dublin any time she wants, and it will be chock full of the useless welfare dependents, not doing any work, mugging old Irish grannies, molesting young Irish girls, shoplifting, drug dealing, fighting and being, well, niggers! Go on Sinead, go into Dublin, away from your nice house and take a look!
I hope you had a very merry Christmas. And I shall wish you a happy new year in advance! Today is the feast of St Stephen, in most of the English speaking world, today is boxing day, in Ireland we call it St Stephens Day! Today we go hunting, or watch the races, we eat leftovers and visit neighbours! These things we have done as long as I can remember, and probably shall continue to do as long as I live, not because it is forced, not even because it is expected, but because it is a tradition, it is something inescapable, it’s what is done on this day.
Christmas is probably my favourite time of year, I love the excitement, the expectation, the time off and the fine foods! I like being surrounded by family and friends, and yes they sometimes drive me mad, but this is not the time to debate the crisis we are in, now is a time to enjoy a return to our past, our kith and kin, home!
Whatever dread thing, or terrible event/s lie in wait for us in the new year, now is time to enjoy and bask in what little goodness remains in the world.
A very merry Christmas to you all!
I’ve been in Germany this week, Leipzig to be exact! What a country, what beer and what people!
I think I’ve made my decision, and I’m going to be moving to Saxony come February. This place is what I want and the life here is the sort of life I want to live, free from fear, free from violence or intimidation and filled with good people who don’t steal or rape or murder given half a chance.
The economic crisis has exposed many companies as parasites, some as Ponzis and others as sophisticated frauds. But I was thinking about this and decided that there were still some companies that do things, produce things or provide services that are needed, some companies are not parasites, some are well run and some I even admire!
Ryanair – I know, there are many people who hate Ryanair, there are some who have been screwed by them, but, they have provided me with many years of cheap and cheerful travel throughout Europe, I have been able to visit Italy, Spain and France for £10 or so, I have received free flights and am able to go home on a regular basis due to Ryanairs cheap and frequent flights. Ryanairs planes are new, Michael O’Leary seems to know when to order new batches of planes, like the time after 9/11 when he replaced his fleet at a knock down price. I also like Michael O’Leary, he has the temerity to blast politicians and ridicule ‘greenies’. He mocked the Meteorological Service in England during the infamous ash cloud event last year when all flights were grounded. The most important thing, is that Ryanair does what it says it will do, it gives you cheap tickets and gets you where you want to go.
Amazon – I love Amazon, I do quite a bit of shopping here and am able to buy and send wrapped presents to family and friends easily and much more cheaply then going to some rip off shop. I started buying books on Amazon and have got to the point where much of my purchasing is from Amazon. I like the fact that Amazon will respond to any problem promptly. Unlike some shops, I can be assured, if there is a problem, they will fix it. Again it does what it says on the tin.
Apple – I have only recently decided I like Apple, I bought an iPhone in January and have been quite impressed with it. I’m able to go on Amazon, Ebay, pay-pal, WordPress, email and internet all on this small phone. I’m able to write blog posts, read news and blogs on Pulse, which is the best app I think I have, and I’m able to do much of what I can do on my laptop. As a result of this, I decided to replace my ageing PC laptop with a Macbook pro last week. It is better than I expected, so yes I’m impressed with Apple and can see why so many mac owners in the past have praised macs to me. Apple are expensive, but they provide quality products.
Nandos – I love Nandos, the service is excellent, if it is not, all one has to do is talk to the management and they will right it for you, the food is excellent and hearty and fresh. The restaurants are cool, a bit quirky, but homely. If you want a good filling, spicy meal, go to Nandos!
Pret a Manger – Another eatery which I can rely on, basically a sandwich shop, but is makes excellent coffees and hot chocolates, everything is organic and fresh, the sandwiches are prepared in store and put on the shelf for a short while and then thrown out. That is why I can go into any Pret and happily buy a sandwich and coffee, I know it will be fresh and tasty.
Vodafone – I hate Vodafone, they are rip off merchants extraordinaire! I am currently locked into a deal with my iPhone for the next year! I am charged £30 a month, but the 3G is only 500 MB, which I was assured would be more than enough, it aint! I regularly go over this with each extra 500 MB costing £5, and for some reason they charge me if I go over 1GB on wi-fi! Why is that? It’s not like it costs them anything? I also have mobile internet for my laptop, again it is not nearly enough and so I use the public wi-fi now, screw Vodafone! I will never go with them again!
3 Network – More rip off merchants, I am no longer with them, but their service was woeful, their internet did not work and they never made any attempt to fix it, all of their call centres are in India, so most of the time I had no idea what was being said! Never use 3 if you can avoid it!
Virgin – Again, more rip off merchants, I had a package deal with these criminals, and they never overlook an opportunity to screw you over, charges for this, charges or that, and what is worse are the outright lies. I was informed that my internet would be wi-fi, it wasnt and when I complained they swore they knew nothing of it, so I had to pay and extra £70 for wi-fi! Well, I’m currently in dispute with Virgin after I found out they were stealing from my account. They were taking out £10 every month for a Virgin phone I never had! So I stopped paying them and demanded the money back and so they have got the bailiffs after me! Screw Virgin and Branson!
Water Companies – All of them are rip off merchants, these things should be publicly owned, but the Conservative party decided to privatise them and now it is more expensive, due to the profits that need to be made. The water companies are monopolies, one can’t change one’s supplier. I wonder if any of the politicians involved in privatising these things have friends or family that made money from it?
Well this is only the beginning, please leave some recommendations for companies you love or loathe!
