The week so far

I’m in a ranting mood, and since the news has provided me with enough fodder to write a blog, I thought I would share my ranting with you. After all, I like moaning and I’ve even received a complaint from an elderly lady when I wrote in my blog that over 70s have no idea what media studies is and just like to sit there mocking us as if we just watch television for three years; I’m not going to apologise, but I might if you say how wonderful media studies is and that we do more than watch Loose Women (well, we do, but only half the time).

First of all there’s the article about the head of the IMF, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, who has been accused of sexual assault by a maid. If it’s not bankers receiving huge pay bonuses and financial ‘experts’ messing up our financial system, it’s the seniors messing around with maids. To me, it sounds like a porn movie gone bad, but the one with his tackle out is a man of great power and responsibility. Now, put your ends away and focus on financial recovery; you know, we are in a recession and we need your full attention on the world of finance – but then again, what’s the big fuss all about? He’s a man in finance, a senior individual, who has had sex with a maid – where are our world priorities?

The Queen this week visited Ireland – and not only did they fail to give us 12 points at Eurovision, the cheeky buggers decide to try and bomb us – or at least attempt to. You can use whatever codenames you want – 007 for all I care – but please stop living in the past. We may be one of your enemies and you really don’t like us, but now is the best time to put our differences behind us. I hate to say it, but we really love Jedward – so please, on that note, can we just all get along. Perhaps you hate us for giving you Jedward in the first place?

Finally in the week so far, jobless figures have decreased. Now I can’t wait until the next figures are released where figures have increased slightly as a result of closing Jobcentres, according to the newspapers. Sure, it might sound good for now that unemployment is decreasing, but why not shoot yourself in the foot by closing Jobcentres and making those who find us jobs redundant. This seems like an ever-fluctuating mess of decrease-increase, so why not just stop cutting finances too quickly and maybe the economy would recover? Politicians, eh?!
