JIMBO’S BLOG/DOES SEX SELL?/GREEDY POLITICIANS AND BUSINESS FAT CATS


Hi Guys.

My blog addy is www.miteamshirts.com.

Yeah I’ve really got my own dot com addy, can’t believe my luck.

My personal e-mail addy is James@mits-online.co.uk , and ladies, I love your e-mails but please don’t get so personal. Behave yourselves. I’m an ‘Old Git’.

Okay let’s get down to business and do some plain speaking which I do quite often. If you can’t then I can and will for you.

Those of us with websites hope to make money. That’s usually the norm’  but not always. Some want to send out a message to people less fortunate than ourselves. Some websites want to combine both together.

At www.myteamshirts.co.uk we also want to combine business with caring for others.

You have the contact details now to be able to get in touch, to ask for advice or just to give your opinions. I have large ears so please get in touch PLEASE.

Websites are www.myteamshirts.co.uk/www.mits-online.co.uk

We people with websites are in a unique position to help each other by just clicking onto a LIKE BUTTON. If you are just visiting a website or reading a blog from curiosity or for info’ PLEASE BE COURTEOUS and leave a comment whether it’s good or bad.

I leave comments on a regular basis and ALSO TRY to leave a FAVOURABLE remark. We all love compliments, and I am no exception.

I’m gonna’ question your motives now.

Which part of my HEADING  led you here? Was it the SEX INNUENDO, or POLITICS and BUSINESS?

I’m going to cover both briefly, after all you don’t want to be brow beaten.

 POLITICS and BUSINESS

I am not a  politician, although it has been said that I should be, but then what do I know?

I speak my mind and I so wish that politicians would do the same, and not ‘toe the party line’ or the WHIPS. (The sex comes later).

It seems to me and friends I talk to that the ‘majority’ of politicians just offer ‘RHETORIC/WORDS’ and are paid approx. £70,000 per year for not doing very much except showing themselves up, like kids in the playground, particularly the Prime Minister and the leader of the opposition at Prime Minister’s question time each Wednesday at 12:00 noon.

Why is it called question time? Questions deserve answers. Have you ever heard them answer with’an ‘answer’?

I watch regularly the ‘Daily Politics‘ on BBC TV and even Andrew Neill (the best) and Jo Coburn (2nd best, sorry girl) can’t get answers from them when they’re on the show. A great show by the way. ( Give me the £10 later Andrew).

There are too many high profile people in POLITICS and BUSINESS whose prime concern is to make EXHORBITANT amounts of money regardless of who is on the receiving end.

Ok, low interest rates are the worst this generation has encountered and the business ‘ELITE’ do create wealth, which in turn creates jobs, but sometimes it’s just for pure greed.

They are already MILLIONAIRES. How could you or I spend a million sensibly?

My only exception is Sir Richard Branson who wants to run the National Lottery for nil profit, and pass on the ‘PROFITS‘ to CHARITIES’.

Why has he been passed by?

Read a previous blog of mine on that matter. I’m too big to be a terrier but I am like a dog with a bone. The trouble is, although Sir Richard has read my blog on the subject, he has yet to reply and say “leave it alone Jimbo”.

DOES SEX SELL?

I’m not going to discuss sex but, will show you examples of some SCREEN PRINTED SHIRTS that we at MiTeamShirt have been asked to supply.

Don’t judge us by the shirts you see.

I’ve spared you certain one’s such as sexual positions.

Some are risque, but we are grown ups so make your own mind up and give me some FEEDBACK. PREFERABLY give me SOME ORDERS.

Take care and stay healthy

SIR RICHARD BRANSON TO RUN THE NATIONAL LOTTERY

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.

SIR/LORD SUGAR, BUSINESS 2012 EXHIBITION, O2 ARENA, LONDON

This weekend MyTeamShirts are attending the Business 2012 exhibition at the O2 Arena in London. It’s a three day event and we are looking forward to the possibility of meeting, and speaking with, Sir Richard Branson and Sir Alan Sugar, for whom I have the greatest admiration. (Is A.S. a politician….or just a Lord)???

Lord Alan Sugar is a self-made man. The only thing I have in common with Sir Alan is that I have used his products. He was the mastermind behind Amstrad in the 1980’s. The name was based on his business which at the time was A.M.S. Trading.

I purchased my first dedicated word processor/computer (AMSTRAD WPC256k) in 1987 when I was studying for my HND in Business Management. 256k memory held approx a yellow pages book. How times and technology have moved on since then. I still have that same computer and the software(3 1/2″ floppy discs) at home at the bottom of my wardrobe in full working order including the dot matrix printer.

In those days I would have been totally lost without my new PC.

In my opinion, Sir Alan was definitely an innovator and pathfinder and even had his own Amstrad PC monthly magazine published which I bought religiously. Having voiced my praise, I don’t personally go for all of this “Lordship” stuff tho.

Whatever happened to Amstrad????  Apart from “The Apprentice”, from which I am sure I would’ve heard the words “Your fired!”, I haven’t seen much of him on TV, although co-incidentally, he is actually on the cover of next week’s  BBC Radio Times 17th -24th March!

In my opinion, the British Government are picking his brains and his business acumen – I thought the Government had enough competent people to do that!

What a massive compliment to Sir Alan but, deservedly so!!!

Anyway that’s my blog and info to you for now, so from this ‘Old Git’ Jimbo, untill my next blog, take care.

Parliament Channel and Prime Ministers question time

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
