Bite my lip.

Remembrance Sunday is the 10th but Remembrance Day is the 11th. I have always made a point of keeping my petty concerns silent for Remembrance Day although not always for the Sunday.

Since they are so close together this year I will be silent for both. This blog will be back on Tuesday.

In the meantime, give some thought to those who believed they fought for all the freedoms our government wants to take from us.

The afterlife, if there is one, is full of heads shaking and minds wondering why they bothered.

    Indeed, LI. This is something that really does make me angry. You can be sure that all the zealots will be sporting their poppies, totally unaware of the dichotomy they are expressing.

  2. Off subject, but I just chanced across an ad, then went to their website, but it looks like someone in the US, east coast, is selling whole leaf unprocessed uncured tobacco online and then offers some of their processing and curing tips at their online store.

    Website is at: http://whole-leaf-tobacco.myshopify.com/

    I’m not endorsing them, knowing nothing about them or who they are. It’s something I came upon by chanced but might have some info of value to anyone doing home processing and curing.

  3. I always watch the London ceremony and I understand that afterwards the veterans go to the local pubs or tto their regimental clubs for a chin wag. They’re applauded during the march past; they’ve been outside in the cold for many hours yet when they get to the pub or club they’ret forced to stay outside for a smoke sneered at by those who an hour ago were applauding them. Disgusting. David Dimbleby who was commentating yesterday mentioned an army chaplain who’d been known as “Woodbine Willie” because he used to hand out cigarettes to the injured to comfort them. I was waiting for the rider ‘but, of course, in those days we didn’t know how harmful smoking was’, but even the Beeb hasn’t sunk so low – yet.

    If Wilfred Owen and the others are to be believed then most of them were shaking their heads and wondering how they could have been so stupid as to have believed the Old Lie.

    An effigy of Moina Michael should be burnt publicly, annually, in every town square on a pyre of ‘poppies’.

  5. Why they BOTHERED?

    For all sorts of reasons that is most definitely the wrong word.

    Why they died, why they were killed why they were sacrificed, and lots more, but definitely, definitely not bothered.

    • I think Leggy used the right word if they still have knowledge of what goes on here on earth, be they now in Heaven or Hell (although, I doubt that souls in Heaven would be troubled by the mess we’re in and those in Hell face conditions far worse than war), if they could see that we have become what they were fighting against. Their sacrifices held it back for a few decades right enough (more or less), but their children and grandchildren and ungrateful, stupid countrymen allowed Britain to be turned into a Marxist-Leninist colony owned by global corporations and secret societies following the ancient religion of the Mystery Schools to create a one world government.

      It seemed right at the time to *bother*, but with the benefit of hindsight, a nation of idiots kept voting in traitors. One such traitor (Blair) changed the law in 1998 and they can no longer be hanged for it, but they can still be locked up for life, but not enough people are reporting them to make it happen, such is the ignorance and apathy engineered through propaganda.
