Government earmark £4 billion to rebuild Richard Branson’s island

Branson's windfucked island

The Government is set to earmark four billion pounds to rebuild Richard Branson’s hurricane damaged island in a forthcoming statement due to be announced by Theresa May at her speech at the Conservative conference.

Arriving in Manchester Mrs May said “It’s very important that poor people see Richard lounging around in a hammock on his own private island so they have something to aspire to and are more likely to pull their socks up.”

Whilst the Prime Minister herself refused to answer any further questions, a source close to Mrs May has denied any connection between the funding and a forthcoming holiday on the island for the entire cabinet. Similarly, rumours of any connection between the systematic under funding of the NHS and the rise of Virgin Healthcare have been cited as pure coincidence.

“Obviously there isn’t a magic money tree. Richard will have to pay back every penny. Not…

Britain First downgraded to Britain Second

News Toad

Britain Second

Far right pressure group Britain First have been downgraded to Britain Second by credit reference agency Moody’s.

A spokesman for Moody’s who have already downgraded UKIP from a party to a gathering said that Britain First must accept a more diminutive title in line with Britain’s ailing economy and influence.

A disappointed B.S leader Paul Golding told us that in hindsight a group with an irrational preference of one middle eastern religion over an other might actually function more efficiently with Europe.

“It’s basically as a result of Brexit. In cancelling free movement of EU citizens it means that Britain will instead have to arrange trade deals and subsequent free movement of people from emerging economies some of which  have a far higher proportion of Muslims than Europe.  As a result we’ve failed in our mission and might even have to be classified as Britain Third by 2019. All we…

Emotional Incest and the Narcissist Grandparent

Codependency Is Not Love With Dr. Nicholas Jenner

Some years ago, I wrote about the concept of the golden child in a family. Succinctly put, this is a child who is asked to maintain the self esteem of a narcissist parent by being everything that he or she was not, being the child that is put forward in the community as special. The downside of this is that the parent is the one who takes any success that the child has and the child is conditioned to put the needs of the parent before their own. In effect, everything they do is to make the parent look good or to make them happy. In extreme cases, the child is subjected to an emotional caretaking role and is often involved in conversations and discussions about the parent’s life that no child should be involved in. It obligates the child to be codependent with the parent and the parent sucks…

Relationships: The Four Pillars…As Simple as That

So true.

Dr Nicholas Jenner

There are many theories, models and assumptions around that pontificate on what keeps two people together over the long-term. You can find books and posts that cover all aspects of this subject and more. Many of them offer up good advice on keeping it fresh or avoiding the pitfalls of a stale relationship. Advice badly needed by anyone who has decided to take that leap of faith.

I have helped couples in crisis for many years and often they turn up for therapy with their relationship in just the kind of state described above, worn out and waiting for the end. They often cite all kinds of reasons for the decline and describe a typical pattern of relationship decay that has gone unheeded and sometimes unnoticed for a long period. They just do not put the work in any longer. They do not see the need. Everything is taken for…

When Stress becomes Burnout

Dr Nicholas Jenner

Burnout is a problem that many people either face or come very close to facing at some point in their life or career and the numbers are rising. According to the American Psychological Association : three-quarters of Americans experience symptoms related to stress in a given month: – 77% experience physical symptoms – 73% experience psychological symptoms. In Germany, a recent study by the government revealed that 5% of all adults between the ages of 25 and 45 are officially suffering from burnout. They cited common symptoms such as: depleted physical energy, emotional exhaustion, increasing absenteeism at work, less investment in personal relationships, increasingly pessimistic view of the world and lowered immunity to illness.

If your job or some other commitment keeps you completely drained physically or emotionally, and if this situation goes on for an extended period of time, you may finally reach breaking point and fall victim to Burnout Syndrome. Burnout is…

The Importance of Dream Interpretation

Dr Nicholas Jenner

Nightmares can be terrifying. But if we pay attention, they can give us an insight into what’s really bothering us. Does this sound familiar? You wake bathed in sweat with your heart pounding. The dream you were having was vivid and terrifying. You were being chased down a dark alley by a knife-wielding assailant. Or maybe you witnessed the death of a loved one. You might even have been the perpetrator. We all have nightmares occasionally and wonder at their meaning. But do they have any real significance? Or are they just a confused jumble of images?

A nightmare is a vivid and unpleasant dream that usually wakes the dreamer. It is accompanied by disturbing emotions like guilt, sadness, or more often, fear and anxiety. It’s normal for children to have nightmares and about 90 per cent of adults will experience a nightmare at some point in their lives. Only…
