Thoughts in your day

It must be s.c.a.m season! Had an email it says from HMRC and I have a refund of £476.23 to follow the link for more information. I deleted it. What's the odds I would then be asked for my bank details etc to deposit the money.

 

More pests

 

Terrible for those who trust these emails

I feel the Olympic Games is going to have a transformation in the sense if an economy cannot sustain holding the games, it's in their interest to not put themselves through the financial pain the spectacle causes. I believe many Brazilians were displaced in order to build the Olympic village in Rio. What's happened to them? I think if a country clearly has difficulties it's not fair on their people resources are put into holding the games and not for looking after the needs of the people.

I was watching something the other day on the British trade in Sugar, which in the early days worked hand in glove with the trade in African slaves. There was a statistic given which really shocked me and the next time you are putting a spoonful of Sugar in a cup of tea you might think about it. During the period of the slave transits, they moved an estimated 3 million from Africa and on those sea voyages across the Atlantic, it is estimated that 1 million died.

I remember some time back Mr Cam said he would step down before the end of 2017. This was regardless of winning or losing the EU ref. It's being reported as though it wasn't expected. By chance or design it's happened.

Yes quite Ford, all governments need to search their consciences and their actions in this world of turmoil.

 

The garden bridge estimated cost 90 million, housing needs addressing first.

I wanted to start this thread as a middle ground for 'What made you smile/swear today.' We have thoughts which don't make us smile or swear but you contemplate on an issue. What concerns you, what worries you, how you would rectify it. There's also the good things that work, you may have new ideas, a space for any thoughts you have on your mind.

 

My thought today is how large privatised companies can hold the country to ransom, being big and powerful and if there's a problem you will do our bidding. The Banks and energy companies come to mind.

 

I wonder about God listening and answering people's wishes.

Self employed wages now below what they were in the mid 1990's.

 

I think it depends on the trade of the person, but any requiring shops or other premises, could well be struggling because of rent and business rates. Those who are electricians, plumbers, carpenters etc and can work just using their own homes garages/sheds or premises owned by someone else, might be doing well in some areas. I know of building trades people who are doing very well and can afford new vans, new cars, nice holidays.

 

But there is an issue, that since the 07/08 financial crash, the economic situation is worse for many people. There are more people, but the money is spread thinner. If people are renting homes to live in and this is becoming more the norm than home ownership, then the high rents being charged means that there is less disposable income. Therefore less money available to spend and less money for self employed to earn. It is a vicious circle that will hit more and more people, unless the economic system is reformed.

If Phillip Green is sorry then he to ask himself how can I put this right. How did the pension fund cease to exist, it's separate from his personal interests.

The John Lewis advert with the jumping creatures. Going back a bit, a young family member did see the same on the netted trampoline in garden, just foxes though, at night and called family to watch. Must be a foxy phenomena:-D

Had a phone call today from Microsoft:madgrin: Can you imagine Microsoft having the time to ring me, they probably don't have office phones! I put the phone down. I'm told it's a s.c.a.m and the government is mentioned and you need an anti virus and when installed they get into your pc. Something like that.

 

So beware all
