Happy New Year everyone.  Have you made an interesting New Year resolution?  Is there something you are going to focus on in 2012?  Why not share it and discuss?  The thread is open for you…

    I have just one: to be a right pain in the arse for the government and all of its agents.

    I resolve to, very politely, but firmly, persist in not taking ‘no’ or, worse, ‘we are right and that’s that’, as an answer from the establishment. Especially when they are nailed dead to rights.

    I have two complaints now escalated from the Parliamentary Health Care Ombudsman and LGO to the National Audit committee on what started as a CGC/NHS elder care complaint, but has now turned into clear evidence of cover-up and/or official misrepresentation.

    Our ‘most trusted’ national broadcaster also deserves ongoing, special attention, especially in light of the daft ‘we must be balanced, the left complains we’re too right’ set up being attempted at the moment, which fools nobody.

    Apropos nothing at all…

    Stealth editing and denial in face of facts is a silly stance to adopt, Aunty, if you are hoping to regain trust.

    There is much to celebrate in this country. Positive people doing great things.

    But the too often unaccountable old-boy network, ‘always done this way’ weasels are too much in charge and too often interfering, across the politico-media estate.

    The cannot and must not be ignored. They must be tackled and exposed.

    So having the internet to hand, mostly free, and open to independent thought, is to be celebrated.

    Bugger. Captain Randy just said the same thing, only a lot quicker.

    To try to double those on my bulk email lists of information about the negative effects of the EU and the same for global warming/climate change. It is worrying how many aparently responsible people have no idea what’s going on around and above them.

    Thanks for your work in putting some great posts together. It’s as frustrating as hell living in the UK right now but I don’t think we should ever give up on the innate goodness of the human spirit. That’s what keeps me going and what helps to counter the big hike in blood pressure I get reading your words. Have a great year!

    To continue to make a bloody pest of myself with the NHS until I get the service that that it is claimed it provides.

    I am going to start a ‘popular uprising’

    There is no European Union Directive or Regulation for that?

    Nevermind New Year resolutions – let’s have a New Year revolution.

    Some years ago now, I made a New Years resolution to stop making New Years resolutions that I could not keep.

    So far, so good …

    Obviously a resolution to lose a few decades and stop being such an ITiot are in order.

    Tx for the correction.

    After twenty-eight years and counting, via nomenclature plus surname DNA we have constructed an incontrovertible Family History extending to Danish Viking/Scanian raids on Neustria beginning c. AD 820.

    Point is, web-based cross-referencing plus objective scientific tools have opened such exercises to anyone who cares. So here’s to Aesgir, Ragnar “Hairy Breeks,” Sigtrygg and Godfrid all!
    In 1,200-year context and perspective, 2012 is most certainly preferable to those virtually paleolithic Dark Age times.

    Let’s all resolve to keep our flames alight, hold fast to principle, cherish Honor above all. God bless us, every one.
