What do Maggie Thatcher, Tony Blair and I have in common? We are all surrounded by treacherous bastards who don’t appreciate how truly great we are! In my earlier incarnation when I was menopausal and having difficulties coping with the stresses and strains of business my husband would throw Maggie Thatcher up to me. “She is older than you, and she manages OK”. She was his inspiration on how I should be. I fell short on every count.

Mind you I think that Tony Blair does deserve to be shafted by the secret self-serving society that he has surrounded himself with. What’s that saying about those that live by the sword die by the sword? On the other hand Maggie and I don’t deserve this treatment. We really ARE great. There is another saying “the prophet is not recognised in his own land”. Amen.

This mornings’ early TV rant was directed at the “revamping of the benefits system” to force long term unemployed back to work. Forgive me for asking, isn’t it called Job Seekers Allowance? And if you don’t keep yourself available for work or refuse to take a job aren’t benefits stopped? When did that change? Is it me?

My great granddaughter is scarily saying things like “I used to watch this programme when was little” and on Saturday I had to beg the puzzled lady in McDonalds to take the kids meal out of the box and put it in a paper bag because the kid was “too old for a kid’s meal”. She is 5!
Talking about McDonalds my husband can’t get his head around set meals. If he wants a double whammy thingy burger with small fries and small coffee that’s what he actually wants. He doesn’t want to big up the fries or order a large coffee and only drink half because “it’s cheaper”. I know, he’s a very strange man. Are we family from hell? Don’t answer that!

Recently I made a valid complaint to McDonalds customer services dept. about McDonalds poor standards at thier Harben Parade branch at Swiss Cottage, London NW3. The complaint concerned slow service, abrasive attitudes, and matters about unacceptable hygeine standards.

The complaint was passed on to the store by customer services, following which the store's manager, Bakry, promptly banned me from the store. He did not deny that my complaint was valid, but was told that I was banned simply becauseI I had made the complaint in the first place. Their management team consists entirely of immigrants, having come here on dodgy visas and the like, and all of which in favour of my unjust ban, which shows how much we are now under the control of illegal immigrants.

Perhaps this is consistent with McDonalds training practices. It would appear that you have to accept their adverse practices without question or suffer the consequences, as I myself did.
