Whats On The Other Pages?

Sometimes when the time allows and normally when someone can be found of similar mind and inclination, its nice to get away from familiarity.   In the other, more abundant times, the relatively ritualised world of familiar surrounds and habits extends itself out.

This is the disorderly, apparently sporadic, combination of both of the above.

Both types of passing time have quite a bit in common.. Also for a person of limited memory hindered by an arguably weaker attention to what happens beneath the feat, it can be worth while to keep some sort of record of the passing time and the things that occurred while there in.

Photos like smells have a way of resurfacing thoughts  a little lost to the haze, smells though don’t come with a device to capture them or a device to resurface them on demand.  If we were more Canine is out evolutionary path perhaps then, as it is and this is by no measure a complaint we do have cameras and photographs, the surrogate for what might otherwise be a memory.

Every day life doesn’t warrant to many photos, not so precious or in need of memory refreshments on things that come to pass as means to pay for trips to Tesco, Lidl and other such locals.  Thoughts though on the topical news and problems of the day, those occasionally arise, gnocchi thoughts bobbing of their own volition to the surface.

So then, in a manner that i know all to well will not support SEO – it a site about stuff .. generally travel stuff and sometimes political/social things.


Quote [98] – The Labour Party And Its Dance With The Right Wing Press - At the party conference, the new Home Secretary, Alan Johnson, declared that there should be ‘no excuses’ for cases such as hers, and that government needed to do ‘much, much more’ to tackle antisocial behaviour.

Quote [97] – The Labour Party If Nothing Else Its Health And Education, Balls - Balls himself was deeply resistant to the idea of spending cuts, especially if they were on education. ‘I don’t see how, as the Labour Party, we can go into an election campaign cutting.  If the Labour Party exists for anything, it’s for the protection and improvement of the NHS, and to provide a decent level … Continue reading Quote [97] – The Labour Party If Nothing Else Its Health And Education, Balls
Quote [96] – Brown As PM And The Trouble With A Disloyal Cabinet - As Heywood once put is in an email exchange with number 10 colleagues, after an overzealous Treasury adviser had rejected a Number 10 request: ‘Perhaps someone should remind him that GB is First Lord of the Treasury.’ But, in the reality of day-to-day interactions, Treasury officials held great power in their control over information.  In … Continue reading Quote [96] – Brown As PM And The Trouble With A Disloyal Cabinet
Quote [95] – Brown As PM Relationship With The Treasury - In rare moments of calm, he (brown) revelled in long discussions on Snowden, Keynes and the inter-war Treasury with his team, and loved reciting the story of how a Treasury official scrawled the words ‘extravagance’, ‘inflation’ and ‘bankruptcy’ on the cover of Keynes’s co-authored pamphlet We Can Conquer Unemployment. Brown at 10 – Anthony Seldon … Continue reading Quote [95] – Brown As PM Relationship With The Treasury
Quote [94] – Brown As PM Relationship At No.10 -   Every organisation has toxic individuals and practices: the job of an effective leader is either to contain or banish them. Brown was caught in a terrible dilemma.  He could understand why many of those close to him rebelled at Whelan and McBride et al and their antics.  But he admired McBride’s and Whelan’s loyalty, … Continue reading Quote [94] – Brown As PM Relationship At No.10
Quote [93] – Brown As PM -   Meeting of leaders on the financial crisis: After plenary session, the leaders returned to their private dining room for lunch.  Brown refused to allow the leaders to have their ’sherpas’ in the room. ‘I don’t want those fucking people anywhere near us,’ he said.  He wanted an opportunity to address the leaders alone and … Continue reading Quote [93] – Brown As PM
Quote [92] – Agenda Led News, The Architecture of An Unhealthy Distrust Yet To Come – “Fake News” yet to come - Obama’s own efforts to be positive is were disregarded.  To a question from the BBC’s Nick Robinson, he responded: ‘This notion that somehow there is any lessening of that special relationship is misguided.’  To ITV’s Tom Bradby he said: ‘This is my third meeting with Prime Minister Brown, and id like to think that our … Continue reading Quote [92] – Agenda Led News, The Architecture of An Unhealthy Distrust Yet To Come – “Fake News” yet to come
Quote [91] – One Decent PM went to (mow) / visit congress - Speech to Congress (U.S) “…So far, so good.  He now spoke out on climate change: ‘I believe that you, the nation that had the vision to put a man on the moon, are also the nation with the vision to protect and preserve our planet earth.’  Some Republicans refused to applaud. More audaciously still, he … Continue reading Quote [91] – One Decent PM went to (mow) / visit congress
Quote [90] – One Egg One Basket – One UK Economy - The government may have been united about the need to stimulate the economy, but it was less clear about how it should respond to the rapidly deteriorating state of the public finances.  Britain’s comparatively narrow tax base saw the deficit soar when revenue from the City collapsed.  From at least the spring 2008, the Treasury … Continue reading Quote [90] – One Egg One Basket – One UK Economy
Quote [89] – Brown Government: Managed Communication – Long Terms Strategy - Blair’s Downing Street operation, with Powell and Campbell, as well as Anji Hunter and Sally Morgan, had once been derided by Brown’s team at the Treasury, but now it began to be spoken about wistfully, almost with awe.  The absence of a political chief of staff in Brown’s number 10 was felt particularly keenly. Tom … Continue reading Quote [89] – Brown Government: Managed Communication – Long Terms Strategy
