http://www.bdonline.co.uk/story.asp?sectioncode=437&storycode=3161475 when a few fruitcakes decided to round on us and waste my time. I shouldn’t have done it I know. One of them kept asking to join. I have to conclude the reason why we don’t have an open membership is to keep heritage fruitcakes from Bonkers-Ville, who don’t even live in Liverpool out of our hair. So we can highlight the problems in our city. You have to earn the right to be taken seriously by my colleagues. But bloody hell a bunch of Zimmer framed pensioners trying to bully us by stalking us asking to join. Oh please. I dropped my biscuit in my tea once I was that terrified. I ususlly deal with these sort of nutters before my first teabreak but I was a bit late that day. The last people in the world we want anywhere near us is the likes of these.I have been told off by some of my colleagues for wasting valuable time this week in not highlighting some of Liverpool’s problems it looks like the SS Manxman is to be scrapped. It looks like they are planning to renew the temporary landing stage at the Pier Head after nearly 10 years despite spending 12 million on a Terminal Ferry Carbuncle. But it has been an insight into the mindset of the heritage do-gooders who cant do anything because they spend so much time arguing with themselves. Count me out of this crew. I write because I have nothing to lose, because I have lost all of that nothing. Just look at those pictures of what is unfolding at the Pier Head and any fool can see we are in a shambolic mess. This is why I write not to satisfy myself. Where were they when the battles were being fought, stalking someone else probably? It was BD magazine last week
I confer and am guided by people who I respect I don’t need to name them they don’t need the acknowledgement they are confident in themselves. One of my colleagues who I have not seen for a while as we have only spoke on the phone and conference on the Internet recently came in the shop Tuesday last. I was shocked because he was only a little bloke in reality, and my respect for him is so large that I had been thinking he was a 6ft 4-inch giant of a man. These are the people whose advice I take not a group of Zimmer-ed nutters from no-where-ville. These are the people who I admire those who fight on when the going gets tough. That stand up for their principles and more importantly don’t collaborate. Those that fought against world heritage vandalism being played out in front of your eyes without ego. You know we have lost but its better to have fought and lost than not have fought at all.
Normal Service Will Be Resumed Soon.
