Touting for Business

I see I have gathered a few followers who do not comment on my blogs, and when I go to look at who they are, they are using their blogs to push products or services.  No doubt my real friends and followers on here have experienced the same, with business people following them, who have absolutely no interest in their lives or what they have to say.

I have no doubt these people think if they follow us, we will go to see who they are and will thus be hooked and shall buy their products and/or services.  It is nothing more than yet another version of spamming.

A little word in your shell-likes, dears.  You are behaving like prostitutes touting for business.  And not nice ones either.  Rather you are the poor, sad, cheap doxies of Victorian London, who would do anything for money, no matter how degrading.

Read this and read it well to let it sink well in; I am never going to part with my hard-earned (and meagre) wages to you for your crap.  Even if you don’t respect me, I have far too much respect for myself, which is evidently more than you have.  And if you think that’s strong, I never asked for you to follow me and I can do well enough without the likes of you, so feel free to unfollow me – and make sure the door doesn’t hit you on the arse on the way out.

I have no problem with people who are not into the CD or LGBT lifestyle coming here, reading my blogs, and even making comments.  Indeed, I have legitimate followers who are cool with who I am and some of whom are curious.  They are welcome, as they respect me and I am happy to answer any questions they may have. 

But if you are even thinking of following me purely in the hope that you may just get a sale out of me, think again and steer well clear.  As we say in Scotland, ye must think I cam’ up the Clyde in a bananae boat.

I am not that stupid and your attempts to lure me in are an insult to my intelligence.

UK Government rewards Nigeria’s anti-gay law by doing a U-turn and increasing aid.

ImageEvery decent person, regardless of gender and/or sexuality, should be appalled, disgusted and angry about this one dears.  The UK Prime Minister, David “We’re all in this together – call me Dave” Cameron, has done a serious U-turn on financial aid to Nigeria.

In 2011 Mr Cameron stated that he would block aid to Nigeria if it pressed ahead with an anti-homosexuality Bill.  That Bill was duly passed through the Nigerian Parliament when signed by President Goodluck Jonathan on 13 January.  The Bill bans gay marriage, same-sex “amorous relationships” – whether sex is involved or not – and membership of gay rights groups and clubs.  Already hundreds of men have automatically become suspects and could face between five to fourteen years imprisonment – as well as the danger of being beaten to a pulp or even lynched by the corrupt Nigerian police and/or the public.  As I type there are reports coming through of dozens of men being rounded up by the police.  Meanwhile, an Islamic court is to try 11 Nigerian men for homosexuality, whom if found guilty could be stoned to death, whilst a twelfth man – a Christian – has been reported to be tried under the new secular law.

It has since been reported that the UK is to increase aid to Nigeria from £200 million last year to £270 million this year, in a complete reversal of David Cameron’s 2011 promise.  UK aid to Nigeria is spent on clean water, schooling and combating malaria, via UNICEF.  All very laudable one may think.  However, even the Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, has voiced his disquiet about the new law, stating that it will fuel violence.

Of course, Cameron’s 2011 promise was long before Nigeria was identified as one of four nations posed to become a future financial giant, which may even one day have it’s own space programme.  I therefore do hope that the world is watching the actions of our odious and gutless Prime Minister, who would sell his own grandmother for profit, and who evidently thinks that “Ethics ith a county in the thouth-eath of England.”
