The life and times of Peter Reynolds
with 16 comments
Anytime I want. Day or night. Summer or winter.
All I have to do is step outside.
Leave behind all the paranoid stoners, political junkies, earnest enquirers and put the deadlines on hold.
Right outside my front door is the real world.

And I have Norwich. Not sure that counts as the real world though, more a surreal form of escapism!

Bit bloody nippy for a walk with nature tonight ..and this from a gardener!
Peter, what do you make of this Julian Assange situation? I’ve just seen a forma American presidential candidate saying its treason and he should be murdered…. And these guys tell us how nasty Iran is.. Pot calling the kettle!
I would be very interested in your opinion Sir! I’ve done a little research and suspect his motives are honourable. Lets be honest, he’s not the first person to be distressed by the shameful actions of the worlds politicians.

I’m completely underwhelmed by the WikiLeaks revelations but the Americans are just a bunch of hypocritical, incompetent plonkers.
I can’t say I approve of what Assange has done. It seems to me that we all have the right to be able to conduct discussions or correspondence in private. The only benefit gained is that America’s pathetic attempts at security are exposed. It’s disgraceful though that they are now trying to fit up Assange on these sex charges. I don’t think even the knuckleheads in the Pentagon think we’re that stupid. They just don’t care and they’ll get him anyway.
It’s all a tiny squall in a tea cup.

You’ve got to admit though, he’s doing the job that journalists just don’t seem to do these days. You said yourself that the papers are just another branch of the government these days, and it takes someone like Assange with no vested interests in keeping the powers that be sweet to do some real investagative journalism. Even if most of his stories seem to come to him!

No I don’t think the newspapers are a branch of government. They’re part of the ruling elite and the politicians kowtow to them at times.
Look at what’s just happened over the World Cup. The politicians couldn’t control the media could they?
In fact, I think the media were right on this occasion. This was the media doing their job and the fact that FIFA has clearly disparaged and insulted England’s excellent bid proves the media were right.
It was obvious after Panorama that England weren’t going to win. Actually, I’m not that disappointed. “Footy” culture is hardly one of our high points and although “The Three Lions” did good, we can do without any more encouragement for the chavs favourite pre and post X Factor activity.
What we need to do now is expose the digusting, venal, corrupt bunch of liars, thieves and cheats that is FIFA. If you think about it, it was disgraceful to see our people sucking up to Seb Blatter, Slob Blotter, Slag Bollocker or whatever his name is. He’s quite clearly just as much on the take as the rest of them.
So what’s a few tins of caviar and cases of Wodka? We need to rise above it.

Yes, I would agree but, I respect his attempt to offer us the truth for what little its worth. I too cannot believe the sex charges. I understand that upon initial investigation the case was closed on the first day! I suspect, for sure, that he will end up the victim. Anyone could organise an accident and we will all believe its the yanks however gives the order. I for one wouldn’t dream of any attempt to upset Mr Putin. Its refreshing to see some honour in our sorry world no matter how misguided though.
Thanks for your response Peter, I value your opinion.

I certainly wouldn’t be underwriting any life insurance on Mr Assange or giving him any credit.

Are you suggesting that Football is not a true wonder followed by REAL British MEN?
At last! For years have felt like a social misfit.
Peter, if I didn’t have a hot Mrs you’d have to watch your back!
I don’t mind football but I’ve always felt there is far more to life. Personally I’m actually a little pleased, only because of the irritation its caused all the white trash, chavs across the UK on this beautiful wintry day.

You’re right, there is more to life than football.
Rugby is far better.

Rugby for me too.
