Blog for September

OK Folks, this is my report for September.

Well, I didn’t really get a great deal done this month cos we spent the first three weeks of September in Espania. And if you think that Spain is all about Benidorm then you would be very much mistaken. Spain is a beautiful, big country that has deserts, snow-capped mountains and of course, fantastic beaches. As usual, silly chattering people perpetuate myths that become difficult to dislodge. For instance if you mention Tossa de Mar to many people they will pipe up with “Oh yeah, inflatable donkeys and kiss me quick hats!. To these I would say “have you actually been there?” if you have you will find that this is an enchanting little place very reminiscent of St Ives in Cornwall. All races and places have their good and bad points, but Spain will always have a little place in my heart.

In the final week of this month I was back on the road training again and made a loop of Chipping Norton, Horley and Dagenham. Talk about a man of international intrigue.

Out of all the courses I deliver, I probably enjoy the fault-finding ones the most. I think this is because I am dealing with people who already have a good background knowledge to build on and recognise many of the situations that I deal with, so they are able to latch on to techniques more quickly. In other words, there are more “Light Bulb” moments to be found in these courses. I also find that I learn from those attending as they relate problems that they have had to deal with.

I know I’m bloody fed up with hearing about “Brexit”, it makes you wonder what all these silly chattering TV personalities would have to talk about otherwise. There is a certain political party in the UK that are pushing the idea of a second vote in the name of “The Peoples Vote”. What a load of holy crap! Who the hell do they think voted first time round? Perhaps it was just travelling salesmen, or people who wore one red sock?

If it wasn’t such an affront to the basic ideal of democracy I would be very likely to support a second vote myself as I wouldn’t be at all surprised if an even bigger majority voted for independence. So what would the Chatterati do then? Campaign for another vote? Did that particular party have a vote about a second vote? If they did I think they should vote on it again, cos I don’t like that result. In fact, I think they should keep voting until they get the result that I want!

Before Brexit, what actual integration to Europe did we have in the UK? Did we have programmes in French and German etc or where we exposed to music from the continent? What forms of integration did we actually see? If we had been allowed as much TV time for dual language and learning languages that has been devoted to Brexit we might actually have been able to communicate with our european neighbours.

Speaking of all this no/fake news chattering nonsense, I have a theory: If we don’t have a bloody good war every 30 years or so we don’t know what to talk about. We had a skirmish with Argentina in 1982 and that gave the media something to do for a while, nowadays they only seem to have earthquakes and mudslides the other side of the globe to report. I’m pretty sure that’s why so many people have climbed on the Eco bandwagon. I don’t think we would be so concerned about the carbon footprint created by carpet bombing a threat to us. We need some more of that “Dunkirk Spirit”.

The other day I saw one of my old apprentices cycling home from work. He was covered from head to foot in grime and had obviously spent the day pulling in cables in tough conditions. I can’t help but ask what have all these talking heads prattling on about Brexit done to contribute to society in comparison to that young man? They are not fit to wash his back.
