PARRABUDDY.BLOGSPOT was started to help find a way for “Adaptive / Physically Challenged / Paralympic Cyclists ” to enjoy riding their bikes on the Daily Route of the famous Pro Tour Race Routes such as the “ Giro d’Italia " and the " Tour de France " !

Through lack of support i have been unable to achieve that goal and unless people decide to assist there is little chance that my 19th season will be any more successful !

London 2012 Paralympics was amazing for ALL , not just those participating but those who followed via the Media !

Since 2009 several other Blogs have been created to cover various other subjects !

Below is a guide to their separate purposes :

In the main Parrabuddy is about “Adaptive / Physically Challenged Sport” and Health Issues.

Skippi-cyclist is about personal issues and Road Safety Issues.

SkippyAus is about matters relating to Oz and some personal memories from my life there.

Tourdafarce & Tourdafrance are about matters relating to the Pro Tour , Racers and some personal experiences during my various visits to ride the Pro Tour routes .

Skippy (blogging) is about a variety of issues on the Internet .

NOT ALL postings arrive in their correct area but I will generally try to separate my views on Doping and Sporting Fraud from Road Safety Issues .

Comments ARE WELCOMED since this shows that those reading are interested in the subject matter ! Enjoy comments made to other blogs so wonder why only " anonymous " posts here !

Over the period of these "Blogs" I have had visibility on Twitter as “Skippydetour” and on Facebook as “Skippy Mc Carthy” where Google usually advise postings on the Blogs as they occur .

When any of you visit these Blogs I hope I am able to add value to your day and provide a source of information if not inspiration . Please consider asking your friends and contacts to add their support as many of the Para Athletes are struggling to find the resources to compete in Events at regional Levels let alone National Levels .

You the reader have the possibility to help these Amazing Athletes in your own way and contacting your National Paralympic Internet Site for relevant info is a good start !

Having reduced the Income Tax for the " Top Earners " ,
The Cameron Coalition has found a novel way of balancing the Budget ! They have delayed benefits to " Disabled People "! WHO does that make sense to , only those that received tax relief on their GBP100k salaries , not those that were hit by the " Bedroom Tax"?

So it appears that in the 2012 Budget , the Chancellor , gave up Revenue amounting to Billions of pounds starting in april 2013 , as a " thankyou " to those that voted for the coalition . As the Economy continued through 2012 into 2013 , it became apparent tthat Budgetary Forecasts would not be met . Hey there , Control to Treasury , " WE GOTTA PROBLEM "! Solution ! STEP on the "Disadvantaged " ! Bedroom Tax , defer benefits for the " Disabled "! Whatever YOU DO , don't upset those who CAN AFFORD to lose MONEY , they VOTE for US !

Whatever the Treasury has done so far , all that has been achieved is , DISTRESS to so many people and a few extra pennies held back from recipients ? Wonder if Cameron is expecting re election in 2015 ?

The UK approach to the " disadvantaged " is copied by the Australian Government !  On the 18th October they changed the benefits for those who suffered from " Natural Disasters "! Some of those DEPRIVED , lost their homes through the carelessness of that Federal Department , that controls the Defense Forces , The Department of Defence ! " The disaster recovery payment scheme " was in play for the Tasmanian Disaster , although that event seems to be the " raison d'etre " , for the 18th October adjustments ?

Those going to the link will see that there were REAL PEOPLE , with Health Problems that were affected !

As of Saturday at 0800GMT , this was the Bushfire Crisis :

Meanwhile BOTH Government Members are busy making sure that they get the BEST out of the EXPENSES RORTS !

No point being in government , if you don't maximise your BENEFITS ?
