Pensioners should not be paying tax on their pensions. It makes me so angry when I think of all the money I contributed that is sitting in the pot that I have yet to claw back out.

I object to my tax dollars going to warlords in bongobongoland, and madcap quango schemes such as the weird "sculptures" which decorate parts of this city. They should spend that money on essentials like policing and the NHS.

Everything from Amazon comes in a box that is far too big with the space filled up with crinkly paper. They are infamous for it. You can be sure that all those nice clean and sturdy Amazon boxes are re-used for my customers. Just finished packing three of them.
General Discussion / Re: John Bercow - Bullying Allegations

When complaints of historic abuse or bullying are investigated it is often claimed that there is no "evidence" of the incident having taken place. And therein lies the difficulty of having to prove ones case to a court.

I was watching a film on historic sexual abuse and the investigators said that an important part of the case against the accused is that in many cases the experience had such a telling impact on the victims that they had never forgotten it. They were able, after many years, to give vivid descriptions not only of what took place, what was said, their surroundings, and how it made them feel.

One of the things that took place between myself and this teacher has never left me. I was a naive child and fondly imagined that if I was able to look someone in the eye and declare my innocence they would somehow SEE that I was telling the truth. In fact the very opposite happened. When I looked into her face the teacher said "You think that if i look at Mrs Williams she will believe you. But i can see the lie in your eyes now". It was as if that old bitch was somehow inside my head and it scared  the hell out of me. Eventually, I made a false confession just to get away from her. I have despised myself for that ever since.

My grandmother went up to the school and made a formal complaint to the head master because my parents did not have the backbone. He said "If your granddaughter was innocent why did she confess to something she hadnt done?" My grandmother told him that adults can be pressured by the police into false confessions (of course this was long before modern evidence rules) so it was possible that an 10 year old child could be bullied into it by a bossy teacher.

If there is such a place as hell I hope that teacher burns in the fires of it forever!
