The Year of the Pigeon

Excuse me if I’m bleary; we were startled awake in the wee hours by a pigeon. Pigeons. There was a lot of flapping and hoo-hooing.

It was so loud, I was sure it was a bird loose in the bedroom, but it warn’t. It was perched by an open window making a terrific racket.

Might have been multiple pigeons. Was probably sex-motivated.

Zo! In the last hour, two senior members of the Cabinet – the Secretary of State for Health & Social Care and the Chancellor of the Exchequer – have resigned. The is big and important, but I’m damned if I can tell you what it means.

An immediate coup? Maybe. Or maybe they’re distancing themselves in case of a coup in the near future.

What can I say? I am, after all, a ferriner. I can only tell you this has been a dreadful government and more dreadful people still are waiting in the shadows.

At least all they’re trying to do is depose your current head of government. We’ve been trying to do that to one who already left office. What a shitshow that’s been.

No, Some Veg, I’ve not taken the oath yet. I will get around to it, but I’m awfully lazy.

Many more defections today. He’s probably toast. I can’t stand Boris, but I can’t stander any of the people likely to replace him.

@Stoaty…if Boris goes it will indeed be a shitshow…cuz he is the smartest of the bunch…of course no worse than what we got with the Dead Man Walking and the BJ queen.

Somethings gotta give…stock up your pantry…seriously buy some extra of stuff you can’t do without…don’t go nuts and panic buy shit you normally don’t eat…but have 2-3 weeks of stable shelf food and extra meds iffin ya needs them. I hear tell that things such as feminine products are gonna be in short supply…oh don’t forget the cat and chicken food.

Indeed the long knives are out for Boris. He’s dead already, he just doesn’t know it. Unfortunately, his replacement will probably be a pearl-clutching reactionary and masks / lock downs will most likely make a reappearance in the fall.

BTW: The ‘Georgia Guidestones’ exploded – well, one of four. I think one stone just explosively fractured due to age / heat / humidity / stress. Nothing entirely nefarious.

How’s Stonehenge holding up?

This Oath – of the brother in blood?
On fire and fresh cut sod?
On the hilt and the haft of the Khyber knife
and the wonderous names of God?

Hellacious explosive blast I heard, Tim.

BJM, we’ve been quietly stocking up since February of 2020. An extra bag of rice here, a few cans of beans over what we need there. Actually…I’m starting to have a storage problem with it all. And the perishables have to be used in rotation. We’re good for a few months, anyway.

I believe the shortages will be epic, and mostly self-inflicted.

Meanwhile in Holland the Dutch farmers are gathering chit in a call to arms against the Redcoats trying to take away their farms, animals and livelyhood.

I wonder if this is all part of that Great Reset the rich folks have planned.

actually, I can’t read Dutch, but it looks like someone dragged a Sherman tank out of mothballs to use as a roadblock in the protest.

You are correct – they caught the explosion on CCTV.
