The British people have spoken! We have shown the country that we have more power than the idiots in the big buildings. This is as important as the vote to leave.
We have said: ‘OUR MONEY IS FOR US’ And everybody needs to take note.
It’s interesting to see the way various areas have voted. Scotland, the coastal areas of Wales and border towns of Northern Ireland wanted to remain. Whereas the midlands and other built up towns wanted out. The built up areas are more industrialised and have many more immigrants.
Don’t get me wrong here. I have no problem with people coming to the UK to work or study. It’s those who wish to live off benefits that get my goat. Those of us who live in the industrial centres are all to used to this.
My neighbour has just been made redundant. He was born and brought up in the UK and has worked all his life. He can’t get full dole as he has redundancy pay. The dole office are making him keep receipts to show them what his redundancy pay has been used for. They want to make sure he hasn’t put it into a secret bank account or used it for a nice holiday.
Some people are on £200 per week while not working. And they’re not British. They haven’t put anything into this country.
How is this fair?
Regardless of colour of skin or religion followed, if you have worked in this country and contributed to society then you should come before others.
If our government had put it’s own people first then this vote may well have been different.

I’m just getting back into normality now. Supermarket food and pollution. I do get some organic veg delivered as well, which is a bit more of a healthy option.
While in Scotland we ate at a few tea shops. The food was fresh from the farmers markets and cakes were homemade. The establishments were clean and fresh. Here’s the view from the back of Boothy’s in Braemar…
You can sit on the balcony looking at this beautiful scene while eating the best homemade bakewell tart ever!
Braemar is where the Highland Games take place in August. Lots of big Scottish men in kilts tossing cabers. Men in kilts look very smart. Can’t put my finger on why but they also look sexy. I did see some men in kilts but definitely not enough!
Here’s a member of the Highland Cattle clan…
Also known as Shaggy Cow, Cuddly Cow or Teddy Cow. I’m told that when it comes to humans this cow knows exactly where to stick it’s horns for maximum damage = Clever Cow.
Fort August at Loch Ness is a lovely town too. You can watch the canal locks being opened to allow the boats through from and to Loch Ness. And you can get a lovely cruise on the Loch. We had a lovely young Scotsman giving us a talk on the sonar they used on the boat and the variety of fish in the Loch. His jokes were appreciated by our little English group, but were completely lost on the Chinese tourists that were on the boat.
We ate in a fish and chip shop that could easily have been transplanted from the Midlands. Frozen, cheap food that was second rate, and toilets that stunk. It wasn’t run by anyone remotely British, and it was a bit of let down from other places we had entered. Unfortunately the first tea shop we had gone to was completely full so we ended up looking for a table elsewhere. Advice: If you are going up to Fort August and want to eat, see if you can book a table in one of the local (Scottish) run establishments.
I would definitely recommend Scotland. Not sure if they want loads of Sassenachs descending on them though!

I’ve had a nice holiday in bonnie Scotland this week. Well away from the call centre. 1 1/2 hour travelling on the plane so not too bad. I couldn’t bear the thought of 12 hours on a coach or 10 hours on the train.
I stayed with a friend in Aberdeenshire. What a beautiful place!
My friend – from school days – lives in a lovely house with woodland at the back. I could watch wild rabbits running around, with a multitude of colourful birds, and wild deer.
I went to see the mysterious Loch Ness while I was there. Of course Nessie exists. I have the proof…
Scotland is really beautiful. Some quirky bridges, lovely rivers, rolling mountains and lots of healthy living – at least it was where I was staying.
If you haven’t been up there I would recommend it.
To set up a policy or to check or change existing details we need the address. That includes the postcode. As usual we get greeted with a multitude of answers when we ask for the address.
‘It’s number 5 The Street.’
‘It’s number 10.’
‘I live in Scotland.’
‘It’s CF4 1QQ.’
‘I’m just up the road from you.’
‘I don’t know what the address is.’
The last one is the best. I’ve had that a few times often from landlords who want to insure a property they rent out. Not knowing the address does not bode well for the tenants I’m thinking.
