I hate what Hallowe’en has become now – totally American and all about commercialism. When I was a kid it was still about folk beliefs, the festival of Samhain (pronounced, by the way, ‘sow-een’), and we would have fun games as a family such as apple bobbing and other things related to Harvest and the end of summer.
This hijacking of a millennia-old Celtic festival is yet another example of Welsh/Scots/Irish – Celt- ethnic cleansing by spiritually- and historically bereft Capitalism.
Also, we tell kids not to accept sweets from strangers then one night a year we send them out onto the streets to do just that! No wonder they’re confused!
BBC News and Sky News currently have uninterupted coverage of rich white men in suits discussing how they can continue getting away with shafting us whilst protecting their insane profit margins.

Wholesale gas price is the same now as it was in 2008 yet we are paying 43% more for it.
“Government of Russia @GovernmentRF
#Medvedev: We need an economic system based primarily on private property
@GovernmentRF I beg to differ. It’s exactly what you DON’T need. Capitalism fed by privatisation has destroyed western Europe. Resist it!”
Saith those with the money who get richer while shafting the rest of us..
“Why should we break our backs
Stupidly paying tax?
Better get some untaxed income
Better to pick-a-pocket or two.”
