VE Day

Rang my father in law for our usual quarterly chat last night. As he was a Submariner during WW2, I asked him what he thought of all the VE day ‘celebrations’. There was a stunned silence on the end of the phone from Devon and then I heard him say distinctly and tersely “Well we didn’t fight for this lot!” then went off into an angry tirade about the stupidity of the 30+% who voted for New Labour, asylum seekers, the economy, tax on his personal pension etc.

Took me a while to calm him down, but I’d inadvertently hit a nerve. He had a point though. Two days ago I received letter from my personal pension plan administrator confirming that since Gordon Brown’s tax changes – I no longer have a personal pension.

Makes you want to spit, only they’d tax the bloody saliva.

Exasperated expatriate expostulations all the way from British Columbia, Canada. As if anyone really cared. Oh, I also watch Icelandic Volcanoes and seismic activity. Don't ask me why.
