  1. How refreshing to find this style of rant. Rejoicing in its amateur nature, I even made it to the end.
    Gentle ribbing of “them others wot’s different” is sadly missing in these straightened enlightened “do as I say or else” thought-policed times.
    I write from London as one who was arrested in Germany for jaywalking and was also bashed on the leg by an old lady’s brolly for walking on the pavement/sidewalk against the direction of traffic flow. Who knew?
    Variety is the spice of life, we’re all better for it and life’s not worth living if you can’t laugh at yourself or others.
