We don’t normally do politics here on Jammy Toast, unless it is simply poking fun at some random politician. Today, we thought we’d make an exception. The Department for Work and Pensions has been accused of “a cover-up” after destroying reports into suicides linked to benefits being stopped. Around 50 reviews into deaths following the loss of social security payments before 2015 have been shredded, officials have admitted – blaming data protection laws. However, the data watchdog has said there was no requirement to destroy the reports by any particular date and that a “public interest” exemption could have been used.
Today we are going to ask everyone who visits Jammy Toast to just “Talk Shit” for the day. We ask that anyone who visits Jammy Toast leaves a comment on just about any subject they choose. Funny or sad, true or false, real or fake; we don’t give a shit as long as it is entertaining and doesn’t really hurt anyone. We ask you to do this because we are too busy to think of anything else to post – hopefully everyone will like the freedom to whine and bitch. The rules are pretty simple to explain – basically, anything goes!
Ihave to tell yas all something today that i told Davidd last week && he went nuts at me so please dont go mad, its not my fault .. Yas all know that i have been seeing Gary since i split up with Jay but he is more just a friend than a boyfriend .. When the dog went back to Carla Lane the other week Gary was going to take her himself if we didn’t get her back && thats how good a mate he is .. The only thing is i dont see him as a boyfriend, he’s more just a mate .. So Jay has been texting me saying that he misses me && that he didn’t do anything with that girl down in london they were just mates who he played computer games with online .. He has been goin’ on && on saying the same thing over && over so i agreed to meet him && have a talk with him..
Afew years ago now, a friend suggested we take a little trip to Amsterdam. Now most of you know, I have always had a fondness for the lovely herbals they specialise in within the lovely city of Amsterdam and so obviously I agreed to the trip. My brother and sister (from my Vietnamese family, not from Davidd’s adopted family) also decided to join me. The more the merrier I thought. I knew it was all going to go wrong when, on the day, my mate who had booked the whole thing missed the flight. To add to the confusion, my Vietnamese brother was drinking to excess to calm his fear of flying and then continued to drink on the flight and got completely wrecked causing havoc on the plane.
Those of you with a long memory might recall that The Bears gave Yorkshire Tea a Bear Paw Seal of Approval back in 2015 – after all it is Jammy Toast’s favourite cuppa. We simply can’t get enough of the stuff and we live by the company’s moto of “Let’s have a proper brew”. Taylors of Harrogate do indeed make a nice strong cup of tea. We were even amused the other day when Conservative Chancellor Rishi Sunak tweeted a photograph of himself making tea for his Treasury staff next to a giant bag of Yorkshire Tea teabags. He also tweeted, “Quick Budget prep break making tea for the team. Nothing like a good Yorkshire brew.” And so say all of us here at Jammy Toast. We may not agree with his politics but we certainly agree with his taste in tea.
Paddington Bear is famous the world over, having been translated into 30 different languages and sold more than 30 million books worldwide. This current batch of stories are taken from his fourth book; “Paddington Abroad” which was first published in 1961. It was written by Michael Bond and illustrated by Peggy Fortnum. The polite immigrant bear from darkest Peru, with his old hat, battered suitcase, duffle coat and love of marmalade sandwiches has become a classic character from English literature. Here at Jammy Toast, we are pleased to bring you some more of the tales which have made Paddington Famous the world over…
There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite…
