Dodgey umpiring lets the Aus "bludgerigars" off the hook.

The first Cricket test match in England has erupted into a farce, Pro Australian Umpires have allowed the bludging Aussies to cajole their nefarious way out of what was seeming to become a catastrophe.
All dusted and done, when the Strayan number eleven waved his bat for a mis- timed shot and was stumped on Two; it was as plain as a pike staff this skinny looking tail ender got 'Stumped good and proper;  the only problem was the third umpire adjudicating who - long past his use/by date made a stupendous cock up due to his preferred blindness at the time and unable to see that the batsman's heel was raised and not over the line when one bail was clearly shown flying high, What a wanker, even Australians in the commentary box was certain he was 'Out'. Only blind Freddie's would see otherwise.
However good luck to the number 11 who nearly scored a ton, while  while being stumped and dropped twice on the way, Only three days of rain will negate this dodgy game.
Ah well I'm off to the Sceptered Isle set in a silver sea on Monday July 15 , and will be back and blogging. maybe with my new extremely expensive IPad while away or on my return from the sunshine? Aug 17.

In all the work we do, our most valuable asset can be the attitude of self examination. It is forgivable to make mistakes, but to stand fast behind a wall of self - righteousness and make the same mistake twice is not forgivable.

Back soon... Vest.

So the whingeing Aussie Bludgers fail to dislodge Stuart Broad in a dodgy 'Not Out' decicision by the umpire, So  it seems that decision compensates for their AGAR the terrible being given 'Not Out' on Two.

Anon I am an Englander from England.
What is your dubious Aussie bludging heritage, seems you dont even own a name which in itself puts you in the 'Alley Cat' directory for miscellaneous unemployed part time 'Waltzing Matilda Singers".

Painting the Church

There was a Scottish painter named Smokey MacGregor who was very interested in making a penny where he could, so he often thinned down his paint to make it go a wee bit further.

As it happened, he got away with this for some time, but eventually the local church decided to do a big restoration job on the outside of one of their biggest buildings.

Smokey put in a bid, and, because his price was so low, he got the job.

So he set about erecting the scaffolding and setting up the planks, and buying the paint and, yes, I am sorry to say, thinning it down with turpentine.........

Well, Smokey was up on the scaffolding, painting away, the job nearly completed, when suddenly there was a horrendous clap of thunder, the sky opened, and the rain poured down washing the thinned paint from all over the church and knocking Smokey clear off the scaffold to land on the lawn among the gravestones, surrounded by telltale puddles of the thinned and useless paint.

Smokey was no fool. He knew this was a judgment from the Almighty, so he got down on his knees and cried:

"Oh, God, Oh God, forgive me; what should I do?"

And from the thunder, a mighty voice spoke.

(you're going to love this)

"Repaint! Repaint! And thin no more!"

"Blessed are the cracked, for they are the ones who let in the light."

Seems the new batting sensation from OZ Strayer doesn't come with a rags to riches fairy story. His family is well shod and heeled and his lady friend too(law Student)
He went to the same expensive shool as are his siblings now, one of them the shool captain.
More people like him would be forthcoming provided they could afford the tuition.
In his present innings he is not out overnight, receiving 24 balls in 35 mins and scoring only one run. was his debut a flash in the pan? probably.
Anyhow I wish him luck if he marries a Lawyer - poor sod.

Searched aussie cricket wimps and arrived here.Just seen Ashes at spectacular Chester le street.Aussie wimps did not even take thrir wooly jumpers off, looked like scurrying maggots in their off whites.The flag of St George fluttered over pristine England from haunted Lumley castle (Aussies chose not to stay there as they were bothered by ghosts in 2005) God's green and pleasant land looked superb , sun came out to clinche Broad's last wicket then endorsed by a rainbow and overnight meteor display.Not impressed by Aussies,chip on shoulder,followed by lack of compassion and no sense of humour.I have encountered this before in Cairns where I was shocked by visible bad treatment of Aboriginals, also insulted by a stranger in Sydney for being a Pom.Your parent country gave you a well deserved thrashing, suggest you grow up and shut up, you are a real boring people. Toonarmy forever.

Previous Anonymous gormless twit who does not have a name, it would seem you failed to read my post correctly, which does not surprise me one bit. Too full of shit, and an uneducated northern English boof head and a geordie/ paki cross, so it seems.
Not many real English left up in the north and around the Rhubarb Triangle.
