So with just over a week until ickle Fay III it looks all systems go for a Caesarian on the 5th April. Im looking forward to having time off from work as well as seeing the impending little bundle of joy. Worked out I have had 2 weeks off over the last 18 months. One was a chrimbo which I hate and the other in August involved finding my nan in her house and her death a few days later. So I am looking forward to a break, that’s if you can call a newborn a break but it will be nice just to be able to chill out (ish) for my paternity leave, which incidentally is unpaid. So due to this I need to save money and my campaign for the anti sausage roll tax which has started with the untax my sausage roll alliance (UMSRA) If you wish to join please email firstname.lastname@example.org. The PM himself has been saying how much he loves a pastie (to posh for a sausage roll I guess) and not to miss out Labour leader Ed Miliband, shadow chancellor Ed Balls and shadow Treasury minister Rachel Reeves were visiting a Greggs shop in Redditch, Worcestershire today. I need to email Ed to see if he is interested in UMSRA. Indeed Mr Balls, who is training for next month’s Virgin London Marathon, said sausage rolls were part of his regime. Such is the battle going on if the food is served at the ambient temperature then VAT will be payable. So in other words when its hot outside in the summer the sausage roll will be colder than the ambient temperature thus lower VAT is payable. However in winter when the served sausage roll is warmer than the ambient temperature then VAT is payable at the higher rate. Nice to see this is top of the political agenda and I hope it will be raised on this weeks Question Time. So will I be able to afford to give ickle Fay III a sausage roll ? Only time will tell.
One way to save money would to be bulk buying sausage rolls before the increase. Speaking of bulk buying the world has gone fuel mad with queues forming at petrol stations and some running out. Am I missing something but I can’t even find the date of the strike yet so how do you know when to stock up ? I wont be very impressed either if the army get involved and start to deliver fuel. Thatcher used the police outside their remits against the miners and bringing the army into do the job of the tanker drivers is dodgy ground indeed. I might accept it if they pull every poor soul from Afghanistan etc to do the job of the tanker drivers.
So the big F.A.Cup semi final derby is on. I’m already getting pissed off with both sets of fans who in some sections are celebrating getting to Wembley. Makes my blood boil that. By all means be happy at making the semi (Not quite as much as the Everton players last night) but I prefer the good old days of semi finals et Villa Park etc. Wembley should be the special day out for the fans for the final. Bit of a small club mentality for fans celebrating getting there just for a semi. I had my first derby bet last night which involves a bottle of vodka and me posing in an Everton kit on Facebook if Liverpool lose. If that day comes I will share my pain on here. There will be lots of banter from blues and reds but I hope its a great day out for both and coming a day before the anniversary of Hillsborough wouldn’t it be great if the city united for the day and of course Liverpool winning 4-0. Kopites are gobshites I hear you say. Well I can’t argue with that m’lord.
