Is The UK A Kakistocracy Or A Kleptocracy

10/4/2023 to 15/5/2023

Monday – as I sit here across the Atlantic (it’s not a pond), with the colonials, sadly I read the news from back home and I am disgusted, hence the daily rants. I really can’t make up my mind whether we live in a kakistocracy or just a kleptocracy. Fortunately we’re not alone, the colonials seem to have the same issues with their government.

But the latest fiasco has to merit special attention.

Yes, the imbeciles in the big chattering house have still not settled the nurse’s pay and they’re having to strike.

The country is in dire straights and if we don’t tackle inflation then we’re all worse off. Don’t these greed-obsessed postal and train drivers, who are all replaceable with automation, get it. That’s right, we don’t really need them. Yet, the government can offer the already overpaid train driver 8% over two years (would be better to just replace them with computer-controlled trains) and our snail mail postmen 9% over 18 months (who needs them with email and parcel delivery companies, let private enterprise sort it).

A kakistocracy (/kækɪˈstɒkrəsi/, /kækɪsˈtɒ-/) is a government run by the worst, least qualified, or most unscrupulous citizens. The word was coined as early as the seventeenth century. Peter Bowler has noted in his book that there is no word for the government run by the best citizens, and that the aristarchy may be the right term, but still, it could conceivably be a kakistocracy disguised as an aristocracy.

Scene at Bethlem Royal Hospital, sometimes known as Bedlam, the first asylum in England for the mentally ill.

So much for clapping for nurses, that put a lot of money in their pockets. Listen you morons, pay them 20%, not the 17% they’re asking, worth every penny of it. Would you want to do that job? Then tell the rest of the greedy striking government workers to piss off, realise that there’s a patriotic need to tackle inflation and if they’re still not happy go get a useful job as a nurse.

And the moral of this rant – DON’T READ THE NEWS – half of its fake, liberal, left-wing, and the other half is just depressing.


I’ve come to the conclusion we live in a kakistocracy. Most of them in government are just too dumb to be kleptocrats.

Kleptocracy (from Greek κλέπτης kléptēs, “thief”, κλέπτω kléptō, “I steal”, and -κρατία -kratía from κράτος krátos, “power, rule”) is a government whose corrupt leaders (kleptocrats) use political power to expropriate the wealth of the people and land they govern, typically by embezzling or misappropriating government funds at the expense of the wider population. Thievocracy means literally the rule by thievery and is a term used synonymously to kleptocracy. One feature of political-based socioeconomic thievery is that there is often no public announcement explaining or apologizing for misappropriations, nor any legal charges or punishment levied against the offenders.

Political corruption.

Wednesday – drive down to Costco in a raging snowstorm. Must want my bumps feeling. The following week go to Costco and Try Sam’s club with Mike. Sam’s club has a better choice but Costco have better prices. Both worth membership, especially as Sam’s has a special $5 membership offer.

Thursday – sign up for Paramount+ in the UK and start binging on Yellowstone. Great series but not the best season ever. Then binge 1923, again great series with potential for a better season 2.




Nigeria: Islamic jihadis massacre 134 Christians, mostly women and children.

Yes, another 134 were massacred and not even a mention in the media, no space left after all their pathetic islamaphobia rants. Obviously doesn’t fit with their woke narrative. Couldn’t possibly hold the ideology of pieces and permanent offence to account.


Billions of pounds which are likely to be levied on household energy bills to fund an unproven climate technology, when we could save consumers £9,000 if this money were spent on insulation, experts have said.

Earlier this year, the Government pledged to invest £20 billion in carbon capture and storage (CCS), in which CO2 from factory chimneys or extracted from the air is trapped and stored underground.

However, analysis by Green Alliance, a think tank, shows that if the same money were redirected to insulate homes it could upgrade a quarter of all the houses in Britain, saving households around £9,000 each.

The analysis found that putting the money towards home insulation would save around 30 percent more carbon emissions than CCS.

Pastrami on Rye down at Feldmens Deli in Salt Lake. I think I must have died and gone to heaven.


Having a cold drink on hot day with a few friends is nice, but having a hot friend on a cold night after a few drinks is priceless.

Breaking News:  Condoms don’t guarantee safe sex anymore. A friend of mine was wearing one when he was shot dead by the woman’s husband.

A 3-year-old boy examined his testicles while taking a bath.
”Mom”, he asked, “Are these my brains?”
”Not yet,” she replied.

Saturday – hardly any clays were harmed by me. 11 out of 25. My worst performance ever.



Sunday – off for a Sunday drive, with a view to stopping for lunch. Kamas, then Oakley (looks like they’re doing the Roadhouse diner up, the sooner the better), then Coalville. Alas, most places are closed in Mormon Utah. Settle for a Mexican in a Polar King, junk food in the American equivalent of a greedy spoon cafe. Wendy was not amused.



Chief Police Officer of Manchester has said – officers shouldn’t be offering protesters a ‘blanket and a warm drink,’ adding: “You’ll be leaving your fingerprints on the road surface of the motorway”.

“Candidly, I think it’s a dangerous activity, it’s hugely disruptive, There are people on that motorway who are going to kidney dialysis, they are going to visit their mums in the hospital”.

Good for him. Just one set of finger prints on the road and they’ll stop.




When will we wake up to what’s going on in our country with failed multi-culturism?

Angry chants, pig noises and blaring car horns echoed down Coventry Road as police were chased away trying to speak to pop-up market traders. On what was supposed to be a night of community engagement during Ramadan, crowds turned on officials responding to concerns about anti-social behaviour on the Small Heath-based road.

West Midlands Police officers, Trading Standards, Environmental Health and Licensing teams led a joint operation on the busy road to address complaints of alleged illegal vendors. The action came following a mass of complaints from residents, who claimed Ramadan turned into ’30 days of hell’ on Coventry Road.

Nearby businesses, imams and MPs have previously shared their worries about increased traffic congestion, anti-social behavior, littering and alleged illegal street vendors making life difficult for local residents.

Monday – manage a hours pickleball then a lazy afternoon on software and reading, while Wendy’s at the CC. In the evening drive down to SLC to pick Carol and Angela up. Not a pleasant drive in the dark and rain, it’s another one of those age things. Mind you it would help if they had some white paint to redo the lane markings. Roads are not one of the colonials strong points. Certainly bigger but alas not better.


  The society-wide acceptance of transgender madness made this inevitable: at Sun Prairie East High School in Sun Prairie, Wis., an 18-year-old dude claiming to be a woman walked into the girls’ locker room, where four freshman girls were showering, and joined them in the shower. If Sun Prairie High School still had any students registered there at all after this incident came to light and school district officials proved reluctant to do anything about it, their continued enrollment is an indication of how much our society has already degenerated and grown accustomed to this level of insanity.

Fish and chips in Salt Lake.





Wednesday – woke up in the early hours of the morning to the loud mating call of some Moose. Sounded like they were rutting on our deck.

Saturday – A “Make my day….” sort of moment down at the gun range with a classic 44 Magnum. Wow what a kick it has, but pretty accurate.

Followed by some clay pigeon shooting, not too many were harmed by me.

Dinner at Don Pedro’s with Mike, Marianne and Carmel. Good food and company but what is it with American restaurants who always seem to want to make you wait to get seated at an empty restaurant. Some sort of power play. This time their excuse was to lay a table. For the flying Spaghetti monster’s sake, it’s a Saturday night surely you could have laid tables in anticipation of a busy night. I think they should have “Please wait to be seated” emblazoned on the American flag.


Now what a surprise:

Afghanistan: ‘The Taliban are offering money for Afghans to turn in any Christians they know’


I see the snowflakes and libtards are still at it trying to slim down our dictionaries with their PC Newspeak. This time it’s a stupid attack on the terms “men” or “women”, all sorts of alternatives such as “sperm producers” and “egg producers” have been suggested. If we have to put up with this snowflake babble then how about “toilet seat uppers” and “toilet seat downers”.


Join Islam:


Hardly a day goes by when I don’t have to battle with absurdity from those 10 year olds imbeciles who are writing software or designing web pages these days. They’ve obviously never read the book “Don’t Make Me Think”, whose major premise is to keep it simple. As for common sense or life skills that’s a complete mystery to them.

I really think todays classic deserves a special mention. Apple text me one of those annoying authorisation codes, every web site seems obsessed with them these days. Bless them the message starts off with a message number, the actual code is embedded further down in the message. I wonder how many people get caught by this and spend the rest of the day trying to input a message number rather than the authorisation code. Spectacularly stupid, worthy of a brown envelope and a court judgment banning them from a computer for life. Well done Apple, yet another example of your ineptitude, sadly they’re not on their own with this imbecilic behavior.

Saturday – car has a scratch on the bumper, oh joy. Must have been done by some dolt on a supermarket car park. Of course being dishonest piece of shit they didn’t bother fessing up and leave a note with their details – just scum. This car’s really jinxed what with stress cracked windscreen and now this. Quotes range from $1,100 to $1,800, can you believe that. Almost cheaper to buy a new car. Never mind ditch it tomorrow for a different one. Let’s hope for more luck.


George Carlin – Standup on religion.


Another sickening betrayal: Britain tells Afghans in hiding they can come to UK – but only if Taliban approves documents.
Ministry of Defence ‘apologises unreservedly’ after independent investigation reveals Afghans were asked to get evacuation documents certified by Taliban

Wednesday – pickleball with Mike and his sisters, then lunch with Carol at Zupas.



Thursday – what a disaster. Off down to Heber for PCMSC Bowling. The alleys closed because they haven’t enough staff. That’s it giving up on Heber. The staff they do have are slow and ignore you anyway.

OK, plan B, let’s go for a walk. Then it starts to rain.

OK, plan C, drive down to Salt Lake bowling alley, with Mike, Marianne and Carmel. 42 lanes; only $7 for two games, including shoes; cheaper; better service than Heber City. “This is the place” from now on – bugger Heber City.

Then we’re off to a Mediterranean restaurant for lunch. Pretty good Gyro but lacks Pitta bread.







Friday – pickleball then a trip down to Costco with Mike. Yes, Wendy’s trusted me to get a few things from Costco. Get to try their chicken roll – another awesome junk food, just $3.99. $1.50 hot dog next time.



Saturday – coronation day. Cleaner arrives.

In the afternoon we host a traditional English afternoon tea party to celebrate the coronation with our colonial friends. Don’t you just love the trouble they went to with those hats. And not forgetting Wendy’s stylish fluffy slippers – fit for a trip to Walmart.

Amazing how much our colonial friends know about our Royalty, puts us to shame.

Well done Wendy for putting on such a great spread, including the all-important cucumber sandwiches with the sharp edges cut off. Looks like we’ll be living off sandwiches for a few days.


  The signature coronation dish will be a vegetarian quiche. Whatever happened to roast beef and Yorkshire pudding – oh dear might offend the veggies and snowflakes.

Not be long now before Charley has us all talking to our plants; abandoning surgery for homeopathy; installing solar panels on our backs.



Thursday – took Mike down to Salt Lake. Nowhere to park so can you believe I actually had to use valet parking – fortunately it was free – but of course there’s a tip involved. Glad to say despite it my legs are still functioning. I’m convinced a hundred years from now Americans will have evolved into legless human beings – heaven forbid they should walk anywhere.



Friday – a great bike ride on my own down to the White Barn, followed by a stroll to the Christian centre to meet Wendy. Awesome day.

Saturday – clay Pigeon shooting. Wow, I actually hit 16 out of the 25, even beat Marianne. Then it’s pistol shooting with a .44 Magnum (“Make my day” sort of gun), along with 9mm Glock and Rockville. Just can’t get the hang of the glock, a nice gun to shoot but can’t deal with the sites, can’t even hit the target.

Try a Root beer. Actually not bad. Can you believe it, Valet Parking and a Root beer all in the same week. At this rate, I’ll be getting a free green card.

Sunday – shopping and lazy day. Finally finish off my French Learning website. Then in the evening we’re off to Joe and Dans for another splendid dinner with Mike, Marianne and Carmel. A great evening, good food, company and an amazing dinner table setting yet again.


Now what a surprise:
