Twitter is becoming the education centre of the “great unwashed”. Maybe I need to open a Twitter account, get educated and be really happy.
And I thought it was all about the New Year. Live and learn !
Taking the mickey out of your mates is part and parcel of being a soldier. You know, you drop your bayonet and stab yourself in your foot on parade, you will never live it down. Simple fun. You give it out and you take it as it comes. Not for this Scots Guardsman.
The British government paid out £1.5 million to some dopey advertising agency to increase recruitment for the British Army and they used this serving soldier’s face on this snowflake poster. A soldier’s career of guarding the Queen and fighting in Afghanistan has been torn to shreds. I think that I would resign as well.
Give me £1.5 million British government for your recruitment campaign ! Done ! Pay up !
I have every right to stand up for this soldier as I served 15 years in the British Army. It was a time when men were men and women were women. Simple ! A time when queers, paedophiles, transvestites etc. were not even talked about, mainly because we didn’t know, as big corporations such as the BBC, churches, law, politicians etc. kept these things under wraps. It was a time when I would lay down my life for my mates ……… and any young lady who was willing to take my virginity 🙂
Thank you Aer Lingus for supplying a layover stewardess for me. I didn’t need to die anymore ! 🙂
This Army photograph was used in my local UK County newspaper at the time. I wonder what could have been said with it and what would be written nowadays.
Oh boy ! Shoot me someone !
Many, many years later I am happily married. Still got things to do in the apartment such as putting up pictures and lights. We have been in this apartment for 15 months and as a Christmas present we decided to unbox the big 49″ TV I brought from Spain. Neither of us are interested in getting Austrian TV programs, but both of us enjoy movies, so it was a no-brainer to sign up for Netflix TV shows and movies.
I’ll tell you what, the Internet is a heck of a lot cheaper here in Austria compared to Spain. I was paying €45pm for unlimited Internet (10Mbs) and €45pm for IPTV movies in Spain, whereas here in Austria we are paying €25pm for unlimited Internet (30Mbs) and €13pm (first month free on the Internet) for HD Netflix movies. How does your pricing compare ?
Knowing my readers, probably in the Most Wanted column 😉
