Hello gang… well it is a slightly awkward night here… but I will spare you the details about that…
Firstly I have just had a simply AMAZING meal in the Flute de Paris restaurant. Oh my goodness… the flavours.! I was tempted into the veal escalope with medley of vegetables and dauphinose potatoes. The meat itself was a virtue in flash cooking with a mildly orange sauce that let itself known only after a few bites of the steak. Imagine slowly chewing a chocolate toffee with the choccy in the middle and suddenly the flavour melting into your mouth. Divine.! The potatoes were perfect, with an amount of creamy garlicness and a palate stunning cheese sauce. Throw in dessert, which was a creme brulee to die for and I would give a massive five stars to this little bite of Anglo-France in my sad little town. As the Sea Palace holds the crown for top chinese and the Curry Garden shares top honours with Surma for the indian restaurant of choice then head to the Flute de Paris and let your mouth do the listening for a change. Mmmmmmmwah.!! *kisses fingers*.
A rant. Let me see if I can still recapture the magic of being able to get a little annoyed.
Whilst sat with Chili in Bar 4 earlier I noticed the headline on the front of the Daily Telegraph read this… “Decline of christian values is destroying Britishness”. Is it.? That is a little odd. You see I thought the decline of Britishness was because if you attempt to be “British” or especially “English” then the first thing that happens is that the Police, such as they are, turn up on your doorstep and tell you to remove the small flag hanging from your window, take down the banner saying “Come On Tim” from the back window of your car and to stop burning Muslims in your front garden (which is just daft, use the back, Duh).! I am English. If you want to be coy about it then fine, call me British but I like the weather wet, the beer warmish and the food tasty. That does not mean to say that if you take away a deity then the whole system of existence collapses into a sodden mass on the floor.
As most of the wars in the world are fought over religion then surely NOT having some form of God would actually make the world a BETTER place and not throw countries into rioty turmoil and set the place alight, more likely it would bring people closer together and stop silly squabbles between people who use the phrase “my imaginary friend is better than you imaginary friend”.!
I did note that the person saying this is a bishop. Why in the name of fuck is a guy with a pointy hat, who is unelected by the people and just gets there by shagging the most little boys, allowed to commentate in the public arena on matters of essential importance. Let’s face it… the decline of moral values in this country is certainly nothing to do with loose women or drink, as he so eloquantly pointed out… it is to do with bad parenting, poor controls over criminals and a total disregard for decency. I am fed up of telling kids off for fucking around at work when shit parents are unable to admonish their own foul offspring for being little shits. I am fed up of seeing little stabby chavs with large knives and endless convictions roaming the streets because “KnifeCrimeHelpingLawyersForYou” have given them a free ticket to do so. I am utterly sick of seeing idiotic folk behaving without regard for other people on various CCTV programmes and everytime I walk up the High Street.
So dear people in the “Church” who apparently speak for everyone… you don’t. You have no say in this world. The values of society are not restricted to you and your faith, no matter which faith you might be of. You are just a mouthpiece for nothing. By all means do what you want and say what you feel, but lets face it… no one is all that bothered anymore.!
