There are two types of losers…..
…..good ones and bad ones
Why ? ? ?
Well probably because there are some people who
coin phrases like…..
‘Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing’
Thank you, Henry Russell Sanders, who was a US college
football coach…..(UCLA Bruins)
…..or perhaps it was another famous football coach,
Vince Lombardi (Green Bay Packers)
Frankly, I don’t give a damn…..
Thank you, Rhett Butler, 1939, ‘Gone With The Wind’
In a two horse race, one will come home first and one second
Pretty self evident
The horse that came home second is not a loser
Ask the Icelandic football team if they are winners or losers
Ask the Icelandic people whether their football team are
heroes or villains
It is actually about taking part and discharging your role
with dignity whether or not you cross the line first
OK, that’s enough seriousness for one post…..
The day after the EU referendum the G-man wandered into the
The Bake & Alehouse in Westgate-on-Sea…..
…..one of (Great) Britain’s micropub revolution……
Feeling flushed, warm and fuzzy with the surprise result he
ordered a pint of ‘Independence Ale’…..
…..to be met with a blank look
‘Err, a pint of Independence Ale’, he volunteered for a second
‘What are you on about ?’ the landlord replied
‘It’s a reference to the referendum’ I offered
‘We voted ‘Remain’ in this pub, what do you want to drink ?’
Or let’s consider the Chancellor of the Exchequer, ‘Stupid’
Within a week a being on the wrong side of the EU debate he
abandons his 2020 fiscal targets which injects uncertainty into
already fragile financial markets
Worse yet, consider the EU technocrats who found themselves and
their pet project rejected by the (Great) British electorate…..
…..’It was a crap marriage so it will be a messy divorce’ said
Now if you take the (Great) Italian lover there is no such thing
…..no question of not being successful
…..no hint of self-doubt
He knows that she doesn’t know that he is a god…..
…..Well, sort of
ps The good news is we are getting our country back but is there
any chance that when it arrives it comes with a summer next time ? ! ? !
