The View from the Hill

Ghost Whistler / September 17, 2018 at 6:55 PM 128 views

I took the long way back from Tesco (Express - that means it's slightly and inexplicably more expensive than the traditional superstore, and less well stocked). A nice walk down the hill, you know, the one through the farmland, toward…

Your Daddy’s Still Not a Nice Man!

Ghost Whistler / September 16, 2018 at 10:41 AM 133 views

This is a follow up; I've gone back and forth on this issue.There's no doubt that a small group of anarchists will never be seen positively protesting the likes of the Tory elite and it's creepy darlings.However reading this has…

Your Daddy’s Not A Nice Man!

Ghost Whistler / September 14, 2018 at 2:57 PM 152 views

Moggy, moggy, moggy....it's a rich man's world!The sun rises and a group of protesters, called Class War, descend upon the (latest) home of the bewilderingly out of touch Jacob Rees Mogg. A man who thinks that rape should be rewarded…

The Unkindness of Strangers

Ghost Whistler / September 14, 2018 at 10:00 AM 131 views

Or, The Internet Is a Shit Show.Let's be honest. For all the wonderful things it brings, it is a very hostile place. Especially if you have mental health problems. That's not to say everyone using it is a horrible person,…

So That Just Happened

Or didn't.Woke up stressed because I was supposed to be haveing my WCA today.Yes, you heard that right. Supposed.So what actually happened: turned up at quarter past nine for a 9:25am appointment. During the subsequent 35 minute wait (because they…

The Fucking Cosh

This is the fucking cosh.Over our heads, for the sake of some dosh...What agitates me the most: the thought of losing my income and having to go to the local foodbank. I would starve. I can't eat that kind of…

Magical Thinking

Ghost Whistler / December 6, 2016 at 11:53 AM 500 views

Well that's that for pursuing a diagnosis for Aspergers or anything remotely similar.I contacted the Patient Advisory Liaison Service (PALS) to try and sort this out after being lied to by the clinician regarding referring me to the ADD (Attention…

Trump The Election System

Ghost Whistler / November 16, 2016 at 11:13 AM 657 views

Well that just happened.Representative democracy wins out again: despite Clinton getting the popular vote (by a margin of less than 1%), straw-haired bigoted hate sausage and professional misogynist Donald Trump now has his fat fingers firmly planted (from January) on…

What the Hell is Success, Mr Green?

Ghost Whistler / November 8, 2016 at 11:06 AM 968 views

A cap on total benefits received by a family that has already driven people into (or further into) poverty is hailed as a success by the man now committing to a further reduction in that cap. This is reality: the…

First the Worst (nothing changes for the poor)

Ghost Whistler / November 6, 2016 at 10:33 AM 599 views

This is a picture perfect example of everything wrong with our society and how the least affluent are treated. It involves a certain public transport provider with a piss poor reputation, everyone knows of whom I speak, but let's call…

Another Damian, Another Dollar

https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/oct/31/sitting-at-home-on-sickness-benefits-is-bad-for-health-damian-greenHere we go again. Another Tory minister, another proclamation to the Daily Mail reading peanut gallery, reassuring them that it's the same approach. Don't worry, we'll make sure we continue to harass and hassle the least among us so that…

The Peacock Festival

Ghost Whistler / September 25, 2016 at 12:05 PM 439 views

The internet is in so many ways a wonderful resource. Social media likewise offers a truly democratic (advertising notwithstanding) platform for people to be heard. But neither are perfect nor are they free from all the shit humans carry with…

The Measure of a Life

Ghost Whistler / August 24, 2016 at 11:48 AM 458 views

In truth, there is no future.I should have lived a life markedly different and better than how things worked out, and I feel judged everywhere I turn. I feel as if I have to apologise for that life. For not…

Ghost Whistler / July 23, 2016 at 9:39 AM 796 views

That was the subtitle I chose for this collection of thought vomiting I laughably call a blog. It appears to now be complete, since the Cameron years are - almost - over. His arrogance has cost him his job as…

Still Going

Ghost Whistler / June 16, 2016 at 2:54 PM 492 views

I started this blog thinking I could do something useful, provide some decent citizen journalism, or at the very least offer something credible for, at the risk of stroking my own ego, posterity. But in truth I have found it…

Looking For A Job

Ghost Whistler / May 25, 2016 at 3:15 PM 785 views

I've no idea how I'm going to handle full time work, but as there is no way short of a miracle that I will pass another WCA, I have little choice. I'm not even sure of the point of attending…

Top Down Reform of the NHS In Action

Ghost Whistler / May 17, 2016 at 1:30 PM 489 views

No top down reform, that's what the liars in the Tory party said before the collective herd of ignorant ill informed morons that voted for them managed to enable a coalition. Five years later, and a change in the face at…
