The View from the Hill on Tuesday 1st June
It feels like a Monday.
The golf went well, in fact I played very well - finishing at 6 under par. No crowing or bragging - just a simple acknowledgement of the facts.
I forgot to tell you yesterday about the lady Mrs B and I saw walking into a car show room on Sunday - she had a very large bottom ( I mean VERY large) and stretched across it was a pair of jeans which you could hear crying in distress and across the jeans was the bottom of her fleece, pulled down as if to hide the VERY large bottom. The fleece was so distorted at the bottom that it could have been used as a pyramid cosy.
Written on the bottom of the fleece were the two words Fat Face....I was feeling a little naughty and said to Mrs B "Isn't that spelled wrong?"
I think this newspaper crusade into politicians past financial dealings has gone too far - we know that they were not perfect but we should now be concentrating on what they are doing for the future - can they help sort out this financial mess we are in? If David Laws is the best man for the job, and they want him as an advisor, let him do it - that's my view.
And finally, this bloody awful mess with the aid flotilla and the Israeli soldiers.
What has happened to the world famous pre-eminence of the Israeli Army?
Think back to what they did after the Munich Olympics, think back to how they arranged that raid on Entebbe, and now watch the footage of this disaster - they must be holding their heads in shame.
And they should be ashamed, not really because they made a balls up of it, but that they actually staged the attack.
I'm not an anti-semite, I'm certainly not an apologist for the militant Palestinians - but come on Netanyahu, this is just ridiculous.
It is actions like this which will reinforce any anti Israeli sentiment in the world, you are painting yourself into a corner, nobody is forcing you there.
Just one final thought - Tiger WHO!!!!?
Success is simple. Do what's right, the right way, at the right time.
