• Experience required.

    One of the things I like to maintain about the BG website is it’s speed of loading (on the Reader’s PC or other internet connected device). This is of course mainly achieved by the BG’s policy (that has been unchanged since Trafalgar Day 2009) has been the complete absence of any form of revenue generating intrusions such as pop up adverts. These things whilst providing a potential income slow down and frustrate the viewing experience and are generally regarded by most as being hugely irritating.

    The other thing I try to do is to keep the size of the image at the top of the blog-post as small (in terms of kilobyte image size) as possible. I don’t like them to exceed 100K but this is not always possible. That said, with the ever increasing size of images, increasing bandwidth tolerance and development of hardware technology this is becoming less critical as time passes. That said, the 17K image that comprises the Daily Telegraph banner is satisfyingly small!

    So, why has the BG decided to head up today’s post with the banner of one of it’s rivals for your attention?

    Well Dear Reader it might be the case that you are in the age and occupation groups where making a purchase of the Daily Telegraph on a Thursday will jog your memory of those times when you were either unemployed and looking for work or were employed but for certain reasons looking for another job or were thinking of looking for another job!

    Now, having put this memory inside your heads, recall the words, “experience required” or “experience preferred” – which amounted to the same thing!

    What these words meant was that the employer was seeking a person with the capability to “hit the ground running”. A person who could do the job proficiently from day one with no need for training – apart possible for a brief introduction to the product, or service the employer was providing. In other words, they did not have the inclination, time or wish to train an inexperienced person.

    One of the reasons why democratic countries get themselves into difficulties is that their politicians lack the experience, knowledge and judgement to make the correct decisions appropriate to the circumstances prevailing at the time. Often – in the case of Western Nations such as the UK – the politicians are hidebound by “political correctness” and something called “the diversity agenda” and also the absolute need to avoid being labelled “homophobic”, “Islamophobic”, “racist”, “sexist” and “xenophobic” – there are others.

    What this means is this: We have a political corps d’élite who are totally ill-equipped to deal with situations such as the coup d’état that has just taken place in Burma.

    BG readers will recall how these naïve, immature and ignorant members of the PC brigade wrung their hands and cried into their organic farm friendly sustainably sourced bowls of muesli as they poured their organic farm friendly sustainably sourced soya milk – all vegan friendly of course – as they accused Aung San Suu Kyi of doing nothing to stop rape, murder and possible genocide by refusing to condemn the military or acknowledge accounts of atrocities in relation to the Rohingya massacres.

    The reason was obvious of course to the vast majority of the BG readership: Had she done so, she would have ended up precisely where she is today! This of course was because any decisions she took HAD to meet with the approval of the military!

    The FACT of the matter was that in the role of State Counsellor of Myanmar, Aung San Suu Kyi was a classic example of an instance of being in office but NOT in power.
