OMG!

I left the UK 13 years ago and have yet to return, and I'm really glad I did.
Apart from my old town now being infested by total and utter morons on spice (and other drugs), it seems the UK's Financial Conduct Authority are a set of blithering idiots.
My sister, who shares the same surname as me, can't put 500 quid in cash into my account using my paying in book as putting small amounts into a third party's bank is likely to be terrorist/drug money laudering.
Not that such rues stopped them assisting dodgy Russians with their dodgy cash, but what the hell - when did common sense ever come into the UK financial system?
Jesus H. <Naughty word not typed> Christ - what a set of <Naughty word not typed> cretins.

I was incredulus, flabbergasted, befuddled, and generally discombobulated by the stupidity of it all, but that's only the start.
Over here (Indonesia), we're supposed to be a developing country, but our banking system makes the UK's version look <Naughty word not typed> stone age.

I have the choice of at least two branches of every bank within a mile of home, and so many ATMs I can't count them. I can use ATMs to take cash, deposit cash, pay bills, transfer cash, and very probably get a cup of coffee, but the UK's pathetic shadow of a version means hardly any ATMs, and fewer bank branches than the UK financial conduct authority has brain cells ... then covid rules that most sub 50 IQ idiots can see are beyond <Naughty word not typed> dense.

I called the bank with the intention of giving them a serious <Naughty word not typed>ing, the bloke on the end of the phone explaining the issue was down the the Financial cretins authority. I asked him if he was in the UK, him answering he was in India - I congratulated him on not being in the UK.

Yours,
Someone that would prefer his toenails removed with a pair of pliers rather than ever visit the UK again.

Seriously shocked at what you poor sods put up with. I really feel sorry for you.

Lots of scope with this theme and - looking out of the window - this might be a good one with which to start!


Still Falls The Rain
by Dame Edith Louisa Sitwell

Still falls the Rain---
Dark as the world of man, black as our loss---
Blind as the nineteen hundred and forty nails
Upon the Cross.

Still falls the Rain
With a sound like the pulse of the heart that is changed to the hammer-beat
In the Potter's Field, and the sound of the impious feet

On the Tomb:
Still falls the Rain

In the Field of Blood where the small hopes breed and the human brain
Nurtures its greed, that worm with the brow of Cain.

Still falls the Rain
At the feet of the Starved Man hung upon the Cross.
Christ that each day, each night, nails there, have mercy on us---
On Dives and on Lazarus:
Under the Rain the sore and the gold are as one.

Still falls the Rain---
Still falls the Blood from the Starved Man's wounded Side:
He bears in His Heart all wounds,---those of the light that died,
The last faint spark
In the self-murdered heart, the wounds of the sad uncomprehending dark,
The wounds of the baited bear---
The blind and weeping bear whom the keepers beat
On his helpless flesh... the tears of the hunted hare.

Still falls the Rain---
Then--- O Ile leape up to my God: who pulles me doune---
See, see where Christ's blood streames in the firmament:
It flows from the Brow we nailed upon the tree

Deep to the dying, to the thirsting heart
That holds the fires of the world,---dark-smirched with pain
As Caesar's laurel crown.

Then sounds the voice of One who like the heart of man
Was once a child who among beasts has lain---
"Still do I love, still shed my innocent light, my Blood, for thee."

The way Vandalism has been going about in regards to the BLM has been going so Rampant that it has reminded me of Times in the Past when other Sacred Sites such as the Library of Alexandria, the Manitou Idol in Detroit and the Sacking of Masada.

I previously posted how the Statue of our First Prime Minister has been Violated. Upon doing a quick Google, found that in America, there have been Statues of George Washington having been Vandalized:

And here is a YouTube that goes on about the Vandalism of Winston Churchill's Statue:




Then I came upon a YouTube of Rowan Atkinson on his views on the whole thing which I Appreciated:
