R-age: diary of a women's seven decades into life

Black Peter and Saint Nicolas I just decorated my tree on the 6th December and remembered that at school in Switzerland, Black Peter and St. Nicolas used to come and bang on our door early evening on that date. We had tables set with ginger bread men and satsumas with candles. I remember being so […]

Things that I have thought about the past few days…. (get ready for a dash of realism before Christmas!)  How do people who are homeless end up in their situation? We are (well I am) always told that people who are homeless are drug addicts and such or they aren’t really homeless just trying to […]

JEREMY Corbyn was accused of being a sexist and a misogynist today after appearing to call Theresa May a “stupid woman”. The Labour boss was attacked by both Tory and Labour MPs after losing his rag with the PM  during PMQs. Jeremy Corbyn seemed to lose his temper today at the end of PMQs Mrs May joked at the end of the pair’s exchange today: “I’ve got some advice for the Right Honourable Gentleman – look behind you! “They are not impressed and neither is the country!” Mr Corbyn then shook his head and muttered “stupid woman” under his breath, as a lip-reader confirmed to The Sun. Health Secretary Matt Hancock said at his outburst: “The mask slips. Jeremy Corbyn’s abuse of the Prime Minister shows what a reactionary misogynist he is.” The Labour boss and PM had a testy exchange today at the despatch box Corbyn muttered under his breath in frustration today And Labour’s Jess Phillips said it was “sexist” and he “should apologise”. Furious MPs raised the matter with the Commons Speaker just minutes later. Patrick McLoughlin fumed: “Would it not be appropriate for him to come back in the Chamber and apologise?” Politicians shouted “disgrace!” and “shame!”, and Tory CCHQ boss Brandon Lewis demanded he apologise. He said: “Looks shocking on the film, unacceptable in any environment.” Deaf drummer Evelyn Glennie told the BBC she was very certain he had said what was claimed. But Jeremy Corbyn’s spokesman insisted this afternoon he WOULDN’T say sorry, saying he’d not said that. He claimed: “He did not call her a stupid woman so there’s no basis for an apology. He said stupid people.” Labour’s Jess Philips said if he’d called her a stupid woman, that was sexist The fiesty exchange over our EU exit comes as: Ministers unveiled the post-Brexit immigration system, which will end preferential treatment for EU migrants But Sajid Javid refused to commit to slashing the numbers to below 100,000 Immigration staff may be deployed to the borders to deal with a No Deal Brexit Philip Hammond was accused of hoarding urgently needed Brexit cash by ministers And Dominic Raab said the £39billion divorce bill should be given to businesses in tax cuts to pay for preparations The row comes just months after Chancellor Philip Hammond was seen mouthing “stupid woman” at a Brexiteer female MP in chamber too. And ex-PM David Cameron was forced to apologise for telling a woman to “calm down dear!” in the Commons back in 2011. The mask slips. Jeremy Corbyn’s abuse of the Prime Minister shows what a reactionary misogynist he is https://t.co/i6hS6z461o — Matt Hancock (@MattHancock) December 19, 2018 Rachel McLean demanded Mr Corbyn say sorry to Mrs May Jeremy Corbyn watched MPs discuss his comments in the Commons chamber after he’d left Mr Corbyn, who has repeatedly called for an end for personal abuse in politics, scuttled off swiftly after PMQs today, but was spotted watching the chaos unfold after he left in the Commons tearoom. The chamber descended into farcical scenes just minutes later after Commons boss Andrea Leadsom accused Speaker John Bercow of failing to say sorry to HER when he said the same thing earlier this year. She asked: “Why it is when an opposition member found you called me a stupid woman you did not apologise in this chamber?” A furious Speaker raged: “I dealt with it months ago! The matter has been treated off, and I am leaving it there!” But Tory MP Anna Soubry backed up her female colleague immediately. She stormed: “If it was one of my male colleagues who had used that against a woman on the opposition, you sir, would take action immediately. “Please, would you deal with it as you often do, in a fair way, but in the point of view of women who are fed up after decades of being abused by men!” Mr Bercow acknowledged the language allegedly used by Mr Corbyn was unacceptable but said that he hadn’t seen it for himself. He promised to review the footage and update the House later on if action needed to be taken. Andrea Leadsom asked the Speaker why he didn’t say sorry to her for calling her a stupid woman earlier this year Anna Soubry said women were fed up after decades of being abused by men Mrs May and the Labour boss had a heated debate about Brexit earlier today, which sparked off his angry comments. He said that she could give no guarantee over when the Brexit vote would finally come before MPs, and argued that her “shoddy” deal has no support. But Mrs May said he had chickened out of putting down a vote of no confidence in the Government.

WITH a £130 million penthouse in Monaco, five winners’ titles under his belt and a stunning new girl on his arm every week, F1 driver Lewis Hamilton appears to have it all. But the 33-year-old, worth a whopping £218 million, was hit by a huge backlash after referring to his hometown of Stevenage as “the slums” last night. Despite being a runner up at BBC SPOTY Awards, Lewis was all smiles as he stepped out to talk to Gabby Logan Yet this isn’t the first time Lewis’ public mask has slipped to show what many people see as his true, and ruthless, pursuit of success. A source close to the sportsman told Sun Online: “Lewis must know he hasn’t acted the right way to a lot of people over the years and he knows he was out of order at times. “He know’s he takes his ruthless side too far and does regret that about his past. “The problem is getting these people to forgive him this far on.” With a history marred with family feuds and rumours he ditched Nicole Scherzinger because she wanted a family, Sun Online looks at the cut-throat calls the sports personality has made to further his racing career. The sports racer ditched long-term girlfriend and former Pussycat Doll Nicole when she wanted to start a family [bc_video video_id=”5980880152001″ account_id=”5067014667001″ player_id=”default” embed=”in-page” padding_top=”56%” autoplay=”” min_width=”0px” max_width=”640px” width=”100%” height=”100%” caption=”Lewis Hamilton claims hometown of Stevenage is a SLUM​ at ​Sports Personality of the Year​​”] Ditching his own dad Lewis showed his true ruthless streak in 2010 when, two weeks before the Formula One tournament, he revealed he had sacked his own dad, Anthony. With his public image at the forefront of his mind, Lewis first claimed he mutually agreed to part ways with his manager dad – who had been championing him from the sidelines since he began go-karting at six-years-old. Lewis started go-karting at six-years-old Lewis, who seemingly banned his dad from the tournament, then announced: “Dad will miss being here, but it was me who initiated the break. He’s got other things to focus on, and I don’t want my dad being my manager anymore.” It wasn’t until three years later, that IT business owner Anthony revealed the real reasons behind their split. Anthony sacrificed 18 years for Lewis, but his son backed out of his promised thank you payment He said: “He thought, ‘Do you know what dad? I am fed up listening to you’. He decided he wanted to be his own man. I was comfortable with that.” Lewis even has “Still I rise” tattooed on his back Anthony also claimed how Lewis had promised him a £3,154,000 payment as a “thank you” for his 18 years working with him. During a high court appearance in which Anthony was testifying a damages case against Force India’s Formula One driver Paul di Resta, he said: “It just never happened. I am comfortable with it. It’s not my business. If he says he’s going to do something and he doesn’t that’s his loss.” Lewis rose to stardom quickly with his dad as his manager But according to our source, the fight had devastating consequences since. The source adds: “There’s never been the same relationship between him and his family since he sacked his dad as his manager. “Lewis knew what a ruthless decision that was at the time but it’s only now as he’s gotten older that he realises that those kind of things can tear a family apart and leave a lot of ill feeling.” He ditched Nicole Scherzinger because “my cars are my babies” The rumour mill went into overdrive in 2015 with reports that Lewis was due to pop the question to long-term girlfriend Nicole Scherzinger – but their relationship suddenly ended just weeks later. Numerous sources revealed the reason behind their split had been that Nicole wanted them to have “beautiful babies” but Lewis was unwilling to commit and start a family. Nicole and Lewis had a lavish lifestyle, but they reportedly split over his unwillingness to settle down “Lewis said they had to part. She wanted more than he could offer at this stage,” a source told The Mirror Online at the time. While Nicole was said to be heartbroken and struggling with her X factor judging role after their break-up, Lewis swiftly moved on, putting his career first once again. “We are friends and we can move forward. I’m trying to keep focused on business,” he said. He has had a string of rumoured romances since, with the likes of Kendall Jenner, Rita Ora and Rihanna – but it seems his bid for perfection has always got in the way. No girlfriends can poo in his toilet His ex-girlfriend revealed how his personal life was so controlled, he wouldn’t even let his girlfriends or staff poo in the wrong toilet. Lewis is so obsessed with his image he wont even let guests poo in certain bathrooms She told Sun on Sunday: “We were on the way to New York and Lewis went crazy after he found out that the pilot had pooped in the toilet. “He was going to fire the pilot! He said, ‘Everybody knows that they shouldn’t take a s*** on my plane’. He was really mad.” She added how he was “so upset” when she went for a “number two” in an out-of-bounds loo. Lewis says his cars are “my babies” And three years later, Lewis is still sacrificing his private life for the sake of what he calls his “hunger” for success. Despite recent rumours he dated Nicki Minaj, Lewis told The Times: “My love life is non-existent, I don’t have the time for it”, adding how he knows he is “single-minded” in his approach to success. He added: “When you travel as much as I do, it’s hard to keep up a relationship, so I’m of the mindset that I’m not going to do that until I’ve stopped. “I want to have kids but I want to be there for them – to be a good and present dad – but I’d be open to it if I happened to come across someone special.” In 2016, just a year after his split from Nicole, Lewis said: “My cars are my babies” – and happily admitted any love interest would always come second. “I used to say, when I had a girlfriend, ‘I’m taking one of the girls out, you can come if you want, but you come second when it comes to the cars.” Calls his £400,000 detached childhood home “the slums” Despite living in a detached new build in the “nice part” of Stevenage, Lewis infuriated the people living in his Hertfordshire hometown by ruthlessly referring to it as “the slums”. Lewis lived in a six-bedroom detached house, but called it “the slums” Dressed in a crystal-embellished jacket, a diamond ear-stud and several bling rings at the awards bash on Sunday, Lewis told host Gabby Logan: “It’s been a really long journey, a dream for us all, as a family, to do something different, to get out of the slums.” But Twitter users who grew up in the same street as the racing ace were quick to call out his ‘rags to riches’ success story blasting his claims as “disappointing”.

He added: “When you travel as much as I do, it’s hard to keep up a relationship, so I’m of the mindset that I’m not going to do that until I’ve stopped. “I want to have kids but I want to be there for them – to be a good and present dad – but I’d be open to it if I happened to come across someone special.” In 2016, just a year after his split from Nicole, Lewis said: “My cars are my babies” – and happily admitted any love interest would always come second. “I used to say, when I had a girlfriend, ‘I’m taking one of the girls out, you can come if you want, but you come second when it comes to the cars.” Calls his £400,000 detached childhood home “the slums” Despite living in a detached new build in the “nice part” of Stevenage, Lewis infuriated the people living in his Hertfordshire hometown by ruthlessly referring to it as “the slums”. Lewis lived in a six-bedroom detached house, but called it “the slums” Dressed in a crystal-embellished jacket, a diamond ear-stud and several bling rings at the awards bash on Sunday, Lewis told host Gabby Logan: “It’s been a really long journey, a dream for us all, as a family, to do something different, to get out of the slums.” But Twitter users who grew up in the same street as the racing ace were quick to call out his ‘rags to riches’ success story blasting his claims as “disappointing”. Cars and success have always come first for Lewis A super-smart business mogul, Lewis undoubtedly knows that a backstory sells, and it seems it’s been working very well for him. He’s said to be one of the most marketable sports stars on the planet, striking deals with Puma, Sony, Mercedes Benz, Bose, and Tommy Hilfiger – earning him millions each year. He grew up in this house in the ‘nice part’ of Stevenage His three-year deal with Mercedes is also netting him a reported £100 million, and Lewis still has ownership and copyright of his photographs – meaning any fees to duplicate his pictures will go in his own pocket. After winning his fifth F1 title this year, it seems like Lewis isn’t set to slow down anytime soon, but how many hearts will be broken before he retires from racing? Lewis could be using his private jet to spend Christmas abroad, our source says Despite our source saying “he will always put what he wants first”, they added how at Christmas, a time of year focused on family, Lewis is beginning to reflect on his ruthless decisions. “This Christmas he could be celebrating another wonderful year in one of his pads which includes New York, Colarado and Monaco – but there’s a deep loneliness that he really opens up to to his inner circle,” they said. The racer is worth over £200 million and has five titles [article-rail-section title=”Most read in Showbiz” posts_category=”325″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /] “Lewis knows there’s a heavy price to pay for that attitude. “He’s very much a loner these days and with so many people pushed to the outside who used to be there for him, Lewis faces a bigger struggle than anything he’s encountered on the track – and that’s finally finding someone that he can settle down with. “But people as successful as Lewis always have a ruthless streak. You can’t win five World titles without being the ultimate professional.”
