I’m not sure what the Makaton symbol is for foodbank, but the thing that keeps me awake at night is the fear that Emily will have to learn it

I want to thank Women's Aid. I'm crying as I write this because if ever there was a definition of love, their organisation is the physical manifestation of it. We survived our situation because my father left and later married someone else. But many women have to flee or die.

As I have detailed previously to my loyal and widespread following, my loyalties to the once proud and unbowed David Cameron have taken a turn for the faltering, since I became au fait with the silver fox, and silver tongued, plain speaker Nigel Farage...

Good lord so I see <strong>this</strong> is <a href="http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-23424289" target="_hplink">happening</a>... I was hoping that it was just more nonsense ranting from the left winged BBC but no. I'm sad to report dear friends, it's all true. Jane Austen writer of books and adaptor of Pride and Prejudice for those BBC "people", is I see, going to be added to the ten pound note.

It's all there. Showbiz, make up tips, political news and many, many articles on how women have let themselves age, gained weight and caused the breakdown of society by not remaining at home to raise their offspring or indeed not having children at all, which is of course very wrong of them.

It maybe unpopular with namby pamby lefties but Ian (I've corrected for him) is absolutely correct. People who drain the decent, kind hearted, unselfish, right thinking, tax payers filled coffers of this great country such as my Tory husband, need to be reminded of a few FACTS.

Piers my one true love, my Lord of Loveland, my bastion of succour, my dream boat of the Cuddling Line, has been bedazzled and enchanted by the whore of Babylon. His assistant, Kathleen.

As I'm sure you'll be delighted to know I have taken to the airwaves in an effort to bring common sense and rationale back to the lefty nonsense that most of our media is saturated with ad nauseum.

As I'm a very broad-minded Christian lady and although I don't have time to go to church myself, I'm very keen to understand why anyone would choose not to benefit from the love of our saviour.

<strong>Mrs Mountable writes:</strong> I see the issue of banter in word and deed, otherwise known as, so called, work based, sexual harassment has raised it's head in the news again. The time has come for me to speak on this issue as there are several girls utterly missing the point on this issue.

<strong>Mrs Mountable writes:</strong> Girls, I assure you there is no need to make yourselves feel all worked up. If the good Lord had wanted Daddy's to read to children he would have made books a bit more complicated.

The key in all this is to remember that it's not so called "challenging behaviour" it's actual challenging behaviour. My coccyx and fingers have been broken not "so called broken" but actually broken. Because that's what caring for someone with challenging behaviours is like. Not "so called" like, actually like.

Disabled people, the rightwing press tell us, are "responsible" for the vast majority of the nations problems. As they claim benefits for disabilities, impairments and illness they are, we are told, scroungers liars and thieves in the majority with genuine claimants forming only a tiny minority.
