Nantwich Aqueduct

CRT have been wasting money again. I find all these signs to be pointless. They are all over the canals. How much did they all cost?

They look cheap and tacky, but when they are vandalised I think it is important to get shot of them quickly…………..


…….so I did.

Belated DIY

A bit of DIY. A headboard was in the boat plans, however it never materialised. It's only taken me 10 years to get around to it. It has buttons too!

Boys Toys in Nantwich



I was a bit worried about these white mouldy spots I found on one of me window frames. The greying is condensation from the metal frames on the ill thought out water based varnish, but the spots were worrying.

Safety Equipment

First there is no need to tie up in a narrow gauge lock. Second if you feel the need to tie up, use the bloody bollards.

Ladders are Safety Equipment and should never be used to moor a boat.

If I catch you doing it, we are going to have serious words.


This is disgraceful boating who ever did this should be hung drawn and quartered.

Where is the Democracy!

Prior to the Referendum the House of commons were given the opportunity to vote on the referendum. They voted 6-1 in favour of “Let the people decide”. The people decided.

So arrogant were they that there would be an IN vote they never bothered to put in checks and balances to ensure fair play, they even put Boris the Moron in charge of the Brexit campaign to ensure a Remain win.

Lo and behold Remain didn’t pay off and the people voted OUT!  Of those MPs that voted to “Let the people decide”, approximately 560, I wonder how many are now fighting to stay in?

Democracy is government of the people, by the people, for the people. The people spoke and government are not listening. So where is the democracy? Currently we have Government of the people for Profit! When are we going to wake up and see that we are being screwed over by the very people we elected to represent us? I wonder why the HoC voted against the populace being able to recall their representative and fire his arse if he didn’t perform as he promised he would do!

What we have currently is a group of corporations who are self-seeking. House of Commons PLC, House of Lords PLC, Conservative PLC, Labour PLC. Individual Government departments are PLCs, Our Judiciary is a PLC our Police forces are PLCs. Local councils are PLCs. (Don’t take my word for it go look at Companies House). The people that lead those corporations are as crooked as the Thames.  David Cameron is a crook as is his family, George Osbourne is a crook as is his family, Teresa May is a crook as is her family. There are few people in Parliament/government who are not crooks. They might have started out meaning well but then the crooks got a hold of them and made them an offer they couldn’t refuse. Then they became crooks.

We are getting to the point where we will have to fight those we elected to represent us, for our very existence. Is this what we want? Do we really want a civil war? And who will win? Not the little people, not the medium  people but the 1%- the big people. They will win because they can just continue globe trotting on their luxury £100 million yachts which they got from plundering little peoples pension funds.  What we need is another Oliver Cromwell to come along and kick the shit out of the so call peoples servants. Nigel Cromwell? Oliver Farage?

I would urge every one to read Orwell’s 1984 then you might just begin to understand what is in store for us in the not so distant future.
