Hi Jimbo, I’ts (YOUR NAME) here and I agree/don’t agree with some some of your comments. This is my opinion etc, etc. (YOUR COMMENT).That’s all you have to do. Just delete the words that aren’t relevant in your view

I am so looking forward to meeting Sir Richard Branson at the O2 Arena in London this Sunday 18th March.

For the last 18 years I have used the same phone and media company that he now owns. I’ve stayed with the same company, although the actual “brand” name has changed several times from its inception of Cable North West and then Tele-West. I am a very loyal person to people, or services whom I trust or am subscribed to and am satisfied with – hence 18 years with the same company!

Sir Richard would not buy a “white elephant”! He has bought the company, now re-named “Virgin Media”, that I have dealt with for so long, because he has seen the potential for making profits from it. So he believes in the same company as I do, but for different reasons – money, and service! My reasons are mainly for good service and reasonable and competetive pricing. Virgin Media have an excellent customer sevices staff, albeit that they are not all based in the UK, which I might add to Sir Richard is my only bone of contention.

Sir Richard’s name, I think, is synonymous with fair play. He was voted the best boss to work for, from his workforce. Why did he not succeed in his bid to run  the National Lottery? Was it skullduggery, backhanders or even favours to some politicians from the people connected with Camelot? I mean let’s say it as it is, some high up people, be it in high finance or politics and, putting it bluntly  (BUT) politely, all ‘P’ in the same pot, or to be PC correct, they all sing from the same hymn sheet. I shouldn’t ruffle their feathers’ too much tho, because they are quite a sensitive bunch.

All Sir Richard wanted to do was run the National Lottery as a charitable organisation, not for personal profit but for the charities. He wasn’t successful in his bid – WHY???

Just think what the extra income could’ve done for the charities over the last 18 years, instead of a high percentage of the profits lining the pockets of the fat-cats of Camelot!

The general public have had enough of that recently from the ‘BANKERS’ and yes I have spelt that word correctly!!!

Let’s “kick-off” and voice our opinions. The ‘power of the people’. Log-on to my blog and REPLY with your opinion, it only needs a few well intended words from you. Let’s get some action going and fight the “fat–cats” and their undeserved profits, bearing in mind of course, that, on more  than one occasion since 1994,  it WAS the British Government that awarded the contract to Camelot.

Slogan, BRANSON FOR THE NATIONAL LOTTERY.

As you well know by now I class myself as an ‘Old Git’. Well in my next few lines, I’m also an ‘Old cheeky Git’.

As a special offer to YOU Sir Richard, you can even have a “MyTeamShirts” football shirt of your favourite team including the “Virgin” brand of your choice, for example,  “Virgin Media”,  Virgin Money” or  “Virgin Atlantic”, for your personal use, for FREE!!!

How’s that for an offer, Sir Richard?

Anyway that’s another blog of gripe, (who said tripe’?) whinge and  info for you once again from this ‘Old Git’ Jimbo,so til the next time, you take care.

Hi Guys

I watched The Daily Politics on BBC TV today. It included Prime Ministers question time. I am presently watching the ‘Parliament’  channel.  If I were a politician I would be disgusted at the manner in which they conduct themselves. Children in the playground are far better behaved. It’s more like a ‘political playground’. There is far too much time wasted in ‘backbiting’ and referring to ‘the past’ ie; ” you did this and you did that, we did this this and we did that!”.

In a past blog I referred to footballers kicking a bag of wind around, well the politicians are similar in the fact that they are the bags of wind and it’s a pity we can’t put them on the football pitch and let the footballers kick all the wind and ‘hot air’ out of them (literally speaking) of course.

When are they going to answer a question with an answer?

I think they are a laughing stock who are a’ sarcastic and hipocritical’  body of people who are supposed to represent us the electorate.

They are debating  today on the Publication of the NHS Risk Register,  which will be voted on tonight at 7pm.

How can two bodies of people, over 640 be at such loggerheads and opposite opinions over such National importance.

I lost faith in politicians some time ago and it has been reinforced today.

All they give us is rhetoric. Why not say it as it is? When mistakes are made stand up and admit it and I for one will pay them more respect.

That’s it for now. I got my winge in again thanks to the politicians and is a subject I don’t normally voice an opinion on, but after todays’ disgraceful ‘fiasco’  I decided that I had to voice my absolute disgust.

Take care til next time

‘Old Git’  Jimbo
