Jobs for the boys

What started as a walk out at the Lindsey Oil Refinery, has turned into a mass show of strength across the UK. Why?, for once people are united. While the economy crumbles around us it would seem that the final straw for the working class is losing out on jobs to foreigner workers.

AngryBritain.com tends to shy away from making statements about issues like these, we don't want to be seen as neo-right-wing, like the BNP. That's not what we are about, AngryBritain.com is an impartial spectator to the events unravelling around Britain today. But even we find ourselves questioning the motives of awarding a major contract to an Italian firm when the UK economy and those companies within it need all the help they can get. It seems in tough times like these, nobody is safe so we all need to work together for the greater good. Brown it seems, is powerless or unwilling to help.

However, this first show of 'People Power' is giving us hope that perhaps there is a little 'fight' left in us Brits and we are not going to let this once great nation sink into the sea.

Rock on workers of Lindsey, Kilroot and Grangemouth, AngryBritain.com salutes you.

The gloves are off

AngryBritain.com is always encouraged to hear about people who channel their anger into positive action.

In the Red Corner we have City Warriors, the white collar fight club. Run by Gary Stasek, himself a little bit tasty in the ring, in aid of charity. It's a way for frustrated City workers to knock ten bells out of each other at highly organised boxing events held under Gary's watchful eye. Like Fight Club, but without the wooden acting and uncertain outcome.

Their next event is being held on 2nd April at the Emirates Stadium, for more details and tickets, log on to www.citywarriors.co.uk . The events are being sponsored this year by one of AngryBritain.com's advertisers, Orange Information Systems, a London based IT Services company, headed up by boxing fanatic, Alan Edwards. For more details about them log on to www.orangeis.com.

A little bird tells us that Alan too has big plans to put something back into the community this year helping disadvantaged London kids climb the corporate ladder. We'll update the details as we get them from him.

Seconds out, Round 1.

Sick

While Kate and Gerry McCann sit forlorny at home with empty hearts, wondering what happened to their daughter Madeleine, still missing today, the Decima Gallery in Hackney is showcasing a work where Maddie's face has been pasted onto pornographic images 'to satirise her treatment at the hands of the media'

Sick.

The only thing this satirises is the pointlessness and sheer stupidity of modern 'Art' and galleries such as Decima who exist solely because of it.

AngryBritain.com appeals to it's readers better nature and calls for an immediate and total boycott of this gallery and those 'artists' showing alongside this. If you are passing, do feel free to pop your head in and give them some abuse.

What next Decima, Dot-to-Dot Holocaust?

Madeleine is still missing. If you know anything about her whereabouts or what might have happened to her, log on to www.findmadeleine.com

You can't make an omelete ...

... without breaking Egg.

It's just brilliant to know that the sense of fair play in Britain today is so lost that it's not just N-Shower who feel they can do whatever they please to the likes of you and I and get away with it 'Scot-free'

Here is the best bit of advice you'll ever get from AngryBritain.com, and it's free: 

"DO NOT GET AN EGG CREDIT CARD"

And here's why. Seems they can change their T&Cs willy-nilly regardless of the effect it might have on you and basically there is sweet F.A you can do about it.

Or that's what they think ...

For legal reasons we won't go into too much detail here but today we have enagaged them in a battle to the death challenging the fairness of the agreement between us.

We'll keep you posted but if you're suffering similar problems with your credit card provider or you believe you are being treated unfairly the following link is well worth a look.

N-Shower of Shit

Now it's not very often we here at AngryBritain's AngryBlog use this blog for our own personal entertainment, preferring to hear from you, our loyal readers.

But we are so incensed this weekend that we couldn't help but vent our own spleen against that utter shower-of-shit, otherwise known as N-Power. I'm sure some of you are familiar with their 'Customer Service', some of which was served up to the AngryMan this weekend when trying to sort out a very straightforward issue. Just so I don't think I'm going crazy here's the problem, so you can judge for yourselves:

- I moved from a house in Kent, to a house in Herts
- N-Shower-of-Shit are energy supplier for both
- When I moved from Kent to Herts, I rang them, told them I was moving and could they transfer the account, and Direct Debit to new property. Gave them final readings.
- 'No Problem' they say, I forget all about it
- 1 Month later I receive a demand for payment, based on a finger-in-the-air estimate . One presumes I was paying the bill for the whole of Kent, plus a the Hadron Collider at CERN
- I rang them, expressed my displeasure, gave final readings again, asked for the balance to be adjusted and transferred to new property. Again.
- 'No problem' they said, I forget all about it
- A few days later I get a letter saying 'We've transferred your balance and tripled your Direct Debit
- Gee, thanks.
- I call them to express my displeasure, and ask where my adjusted bill is.
- Call centre monkey (CCM) cuts me off
- I call back, explain all over again to another CCM
- CCM cuts me off
- I call back again, ask for yet another CCM to take my number to call me back in case cut off again
- "Sorry, we are a call centre, we can't call out"
- Pardon?
- "Sorry, we are a call centre, we can't call out"
- ......

Well N-Shower, quite frankly you've shat in the wrong letterbox. If you can't be arsed to take my number and call me back, then I can't be arsed to pay your bill.

I've cancelled your Triple DD, and won't be paying you a single penny until:

- Hell freezes over
- One of your senior managers calls me back. Well you'll have to email me at angryman@angrybritain.com first as I'm not posting my hot line here.

Oh, as you can't call out I'll make a quick call to Satan to warn him there's a chill coming and you can go whistle for your money.

Advertising here at AngryBritain's AngryBlog is £1500 per featured article, so I calculate that in light of this article you owe me around £1000. Please pay within 7 days, or else. You know what they say, "All publicity is good publicity"

Thanks for playing with AngryBritain.com

If anyone reading has had similar experiences with N-Shower of Shit, do write in to angryman@angrybritain.com and we'll post here or on the main website in a big ol' group hug type thing.

Purr-fect Sense

As the 450 now redundant workers leave their desks for the final time from Jaguar Land Rover and head home with heavy hearts, I'm sure they will be thrilled to hear that their former masters plan to build a mid-engined hypercar, the XE, throwing money and resources at this project in order to compete with the Audi R8.

I'm sure a 'volume seller' like this is sure to save JLR from impending doom ...

Comic timing, or a 'Things are bad, BUT LOOK AT WHAT WE'RE BUILDING!, now forget about those redundancies' moment?

Poor taste Pussycat.

Chick, Chick, Chicken!

As we anxiously waited outside City Hall, the seconds ticking by to High Noon, assured of our impending doom with nothing more than a bucket of water balloons and custard pies by our side, the floppy-haired rip-off merchant failed to show to explain himself.

Chicken.

But fear not London, while Boris sits back in his undoubtedly comfy chair in City Hall Towers puffing on a Habana and counting my extra £1.40's, AngryBritain.com cares about you. If you feel that those rises just 'aint fair then let Boris know about it by dropping him a line:

Boris Johnson 
Mayor of London
Greater London Authority
City Hall
The Queen's Walk
More London
London SE1 2AA

We did just that, with our pictured flyer!

AngryBritain.com cares about you London. Boris doesn't. Boo.

Boris, If you'd like to respond this blog is open for you to do so. Email me directly at angryman@angrybritain.com and I will publish an unedited and true copy right here for everyone to read. Go on, you know you want to.


Taking the piss

Oi Johnson, what's your fucking game?

After we've said numerous nice things about you here at AngryBritain.com, were my eyes deceiving me this morning at London Bridge, when my Oyster card showed that my incoming fare has increased by £1.20 a DAY???!!! What happened to cheap rates if you started you journey before 7am?

Not only that, but my return fare has gone up by 20p too.

You sir, are a thieving bastard of the highest order - I challenge you to a duel outside City Hall at 12pm today. Pistols or Sabres - Your choice, but prepare to perish at the hands of the AngryMan.

Vorsprung Durch Buggered

Anyone out there tried buying a car recently?. We've all read in the press how dire it is for the motor industry, how sales are down, factories are going part-time and redundancies being made. I recall seeing a Chrysler dealer doing a crazy 'Buy One Get One Free' offer, not so long ago.

Unhelpful, Disinterested, Rude, Arrogant and Rushed were just some of the attitudes I was met with yesterday while out shopping for a new car, for not an insubstantial amount of money, in and around Watford.

With dealers like this, it's no wonder car firms are massively in debt and the outlook is bleak.

There was one exception, and if he's reading, he'll know who he is and will most likely get my £20,000 order later today.

Disinterested now?

Monkey Business

AngryBritain.com reads yesterday that this year's January sales are going to stretch right through until March this year. Major retailers intending to have 'Guerilla Sales' every couple of weeks to prise the last few pennies from our pockets.

Thing is, that's all very well if you want a Gorilla, but I don't. Not even at a discount.
