The despair Of The British nation.

Tesco Travel.

Peak Time Equals Peak Disruption.


Swissport is a grotesque excuse for a Company. Cheap, badly trained, surly incompetence the main qualifications sought of their employees. Non English speaking, immigrant cheap labour guarantee the job. Stanley knives standard issue.

As with cheap food so cheapish air travel. Notwithstanding the myth of cheap fares, available only if filling red eye, often empty positioning flights, can any real cheap fares be found. Even then a 24 hour fast, dehydration and a cramped seat, exacerbated by the great obese Brits invading your space, is still prevalent.

The airports themselves still dine out on the long gone exciting days and romance of flying. The reality is degrading security procedures carried out by people thoroughly trained in expressing irritated boredom. You know those sort. Those who consider their job would be perfect without the passengers, actually funding their lifestyles, getting in the way.

The crie de jour of baggage handling, in the news just now, is a typical example of an industry struggling to "pile 'em high, sell 'em cheap" approach to a mode of transport needing intense investment in safety and the very aircraft used. The billions of investment in infrastructure alone is unable to justify the cost of fares.

That fact, more than any other, creates the awful nightmare of modern airports. Little more than shopping malls. Places with sales techniques bordering on personal abuse. Together with the undeserved superior attitude of many airport staff, from check in to Air Traffic Controllers. The latter now little more than computer operatives of a system no longer coping as well as it could.

I loved my career in aviation but was always disappointed at the creeping loss of enthusiasm and the growth of indifference. Even on the flight deck and at the radar consoles of ATC. The latter was often staffed by chip on the shoulder antipathy to not making pilot. An organisation hell bent on suppressing aptitude and promoting computerisation at the expense of skill and competence.

The inevitability of the present day horror, in every airport worldwide, was always going to be more apparent in the UK. Land of procrastination, lack of flair and dull, boring accountancy. Much of it exported abroad. I bet most savvy passengers would name their worst experiences in the UK. London in particular. Their best in Singapore. Sad is it not?

Hypocrisy And Lies.

Delusion Writ Large.


USA foment revolution and the overthrow of an unpopular but democratically elected government. Purity of intention and zero self interest. Of course not. 

Obama's just finished a short press briefing. What a casual, repetitive and unconvincing performance. The people of Ukraine did not en masse elect the West's puppets in Kiev. The fate of MH17 remains unknown and the CIA's present-day clumsy interference is not what it was in the past.

The Ukrainian Government intensified their military action just as the separatists were offering security for investigators. Why? Not one rebuttal of the "fighter presence" and possible firing on the B777. A suggestion supported by evidence just as credible as any other proffered. In truth we may never know. Particularly if it was not the preferred scenario desired by Obama and his minions of the EUSSR.

Whilst all this is going on and ruinous nose cutting off sanctions are being set so unnecessarily against Obama's new best hate figure, Gaza burns with self inflicted fire. Unlike the ire and unproven facts used for the alienation of Russia, The West, on the orders of Obama, ignore the totally obvious missile firing by Hamas into Israel.

I hear no criticism of these fanatics and barbarians. Now is this not all so hypocritical, mysterious and so very dangerous to all of us fed up with our lot slavishly asking how high Obama and his Islamic friends demand we jump. Still Hamas missile firing into Israel fine, Russia's unproven firing, bar CIA satellite doctored imagery, bad. I guess Russia's aid to the separatists, who are also Ukrainian, is every bit as proven as Bliar's "weapons of mass destruction" we destroyed Iraq over.

Then we did the same in Libya and we mustn't forget our bruising in Afghanistan 
, despite warnings from Russia. All I can seem to understand is our lot are on something. That or are all every bit as mad, deluded and stupid as Cyclops Snotty.

More Doubt, More Failing.

Libya Falling Apart. As Is The MH17 Narrative.


I wonder how much this is going to cost us all? Thanks Dave and your helping the CIA and aircraft manufacturers create yet another bloody selling opportunity. Is there anything left for the Western excuse for government to screw up?

No doubt we stirred the chaos in Syria not expecting to be thwarted by a more sensible British outcry. Iraq, now an Al Qaeda stronghold, Afghanistan soon to be once more in Taliban hands and Ukraine fighting to be the cause of world war three. Likely the very last, at that. What really remains for the future that our cretinous, puerile and pathetic Western cabals can make dreadful out of benign.

As for our crowd's attitude to Russia and Putin. Is this pique from Obummer after his weak and pathetic character was sussed by Vlad? This gem isn't getting airtime but surely it's worth a mention. Or is it to divert the watching public from the mess elsewhere? What a dreadful, avoidable mess.
