Forced to raid the swear box

THERE’S no getting away from it, times are hard.

Everything’s suddenly got that “End of Days” feel to it, what with the terrible earthquake and tsunami in Japan, nuclear reactors going into meltdown, Libya on the brink of civil war,

Christchurch in New Zealand being reduced to rubble and violent uprisings in Egypt, Tunisia and Bahrain.

Back in merry old England, everyone’s skint. If you haven’t been laid off, then chances are you’re worried sick about losing your job, and petrol and diesel currently costs the same, drop for drop, as vintage champagne.

We’re going to hell in a handcart, people, so enjoy the ride because it’s going to get bumpy.
