My biggest fear

As you know readers i don't hold back when i write.

This time i want to write about my biggest fear. Its not WW3, nor Armageddon, Its not never falling in love again nor dying.

My biggest fear is leaving this world without having made a mark, Tho the mark i want to make is important to me, the inter-web has opened my eyes into a different world, one i could only dream of. Over time i have seen that we are not that different. Rich/poor/middle class we all have problems, yes some is whether to have a Bentley or a second hand Ford Focus.

Some people dream of becoming a multi-millionaire ( i don't discourage this dream, its good), Some people dream of becoming a member of parliament, but some people dream of just being people.

See we all have different targets/aims/dreams, flipping burgers at McDonald's may not be your dream, but to someone who had nothing its a dream.

Anyway, my biggest fear is that i don't make a splash, that i go quietly, Its not going to happen. For to long i stayed silent, not anymore.

My view is that whatever you do, wherever you go and when faced with problems is to not be afraid.

    They say that if you leave your corner of the world a little bit nicer of a place than it was before you came along, you shall not have lived in vain. I don't think you'll have much of a problem on that score, Billy. He probably wouldn't admit it, but you've probably made Paul Staines's life a bit happier knowing he's not just preaching to a choir of like-minded middle-aged curmudgeonly piss-takers who'd probably be just as bad as the folks they (including myself) criticise if they ever had power. I think it gives him a bit of a kick knowing he's read by more than just the "Westminster Kennel Club" (Google it). So you've made one person a happier man for knowing you. Now just keep performing random acts of kindness as often as you can to as many people as you can, without being "officious" (an excellent 50-quid word you should know), and you'll make a significant difference in someone's life somewhere along the line, of that I'm sure.

    1. Well, if so, I can't say that Paul Staines's reaction was one of gratitude. He banned the name 'Billy' so that Billy (whatever he is called, and who needs to know?) had to resort to Leeting his name to get his comments published. My unkind view is that Staines is now as addicted to the exercise of petty power as the politicians he criticises, and that this is an unavoidable consequence of contact with the poison world of Westminster.

    2. Not true. I asked Paul and Harry to ban/mod Billy.

    3. Point taken, but I still don't think that there is much milk of human kindness left in his moobs. And he does seem to actually enjoy making his commenters jump through the hoops he sets up.
