Mandlesnake "leaking" Blair's EU President Intentions

...to the BBC.

But who gives a flying fuck whether Blair wants to be EU President or not? As far as the UK public and the rest of the EU is concerned, he's not fucking getting it.

How the fuck can he even contemplate it whilst families are still arriving at RAF Lineham to collect their dead sons?

And even worse, that fucking McDoom still thinks he has any clout at all, in the UK or abroad:

Gordon Brown is lobbying for Mr Blair but a lack of support from EU socialist leaders could scupper his chances.


I think Bliar has done a pretty fucking good job of scuppering his own chances.

Seriously, if Blair is installed as EU President, we're fucked.

Well, she won't have a job next week

Every day, a new idiot is discovered.

Councillors resign over blogger

Unfortunately not in Bristol, but in Somerton.

The blog looks very tame compared to some of my rantings about BCC. In fact, that blog's criticism of Somerton Council looks pretty tame compared to fairly reserved ones such as Green Bristol Blog, and certainly looks tame compared to The Bristol Blogger.

The bloggers of Bristol need to get some of this shit rolling here. If anyone has anything juicy they want published you can email me anonymously at bristoldave@hotmail.co.uk.

Kerry McCarthy on class

In the comments thread here, Kerry denied that she was an upper-middle class vegan barrister, simply a vegan.

Going on her expenses claims, I put it to her that she was upper-middle class because she shopped at Habitat.

Her response?

In whose world is Habitat upper-middle class?!


Well, many people's, given that the average price of a double bed frame (without mattress) is around £1000.

I guess it's not upper-middle class if the taxpayer is paying for it.

Fuck you, CWU

OK, this postal strike is really beginning to piss me off. Are they striking over terrrible pay? No, the average postie gets £21k a year. Are they striking over terrible working conditions? No, in fact after doing a bit of reading into this, it turns out:

At the heart of the latest dispute is the deal that the two sides signed to end the last national strike, the 2007 Pay and Modernisation Agreement.

The CWU says that Royal Mail has carried out three of the four planned phases of that agreement with full and frank dialogue. It claims the company is refusing to talk to it about the final phase, how the roll-out of its modernisation plans would affect job security.


So they're striking because some of them might be laid off?

Welcome to the real world, you cunts.

Nobody really has job security at the moment, why the fuck should you be guaranteed it? Excuse me for having no sympathy whatsoever with you, or your ridiculously out-of-date views of job entitlement, you lazy fucking plebs.

And do you really think that not turning up for work is the best way of proving how indespensible you are?

This bit made me laugh as well:

The Communication Workers Union (CWU) plans to go to the High Court to stop Royal Mail using agency staff to clear the post backlog caused by the strikes.

Royal Mail had planned on hiring 30,000 temporary workers to deal with the backlog of post and the Christmas rush.

The CWU has taken legal advice, said a spokesman. The union hopes to show that the company is breaking employment law.


Mad - so they're striking against their employer but then threatening legal action when their employer tries to do something about it?

They must be taking advice from this fucking cunt.



And why do all the representatives from the unions come across as bullying thugs? I suppose they're all trying to give the impression of being hard-up honest workers.

Even though the CWU's General Secretary is on £100k pa.

The National Lottery



Why do people play this? Earlier on I went to the local shop to grab some milk and there was someone in front of me spending no less than £10 on scratchcards. They then proceeded to move to the side to let people pay, and scratch them all. All of them ended up in the bin. Well, fuck me, that was £10 well spent, wasn't it? Clearly they were thick as shit as anyone who is even half-educated these days surely realises that the National Lottery is an exceptional waste of money and is essentially a fucking fruit machine with slightly a more acceptable face, and worse odds.

But still people queue up in fucking Londis shops up and down the country, clutching their numbers form, firmly holding the belief it "could be them", and still the Lottery keeps going. The probability is that you won't win.

If you're so stupid you think that scratchcards is a good way to spend £10 on a Saturday night you're probably the kind of person who can't afford to throw away £10. Why not give it to me? There's a chance I'll give it straight back to you. Only a slim one though.

Nick Griffin claims he faced a "lynch mob"

BNP leader Nick Griffin is to complain to the BBC over his controversial appearance on Question Time, saying he had faced a "lynch mob".


How ironic, from someone who claimed the KKK were a non-violent organisation.

The mind boggles. What a fucking moron.

The UAF are hypocritical cunts

That is all.

I cannot believe this

Bit late on this one, but still...

New regulations set to come into force later this month will see motorists forced to cough up court costs - even if they're found not guilty or acquitted of motoring offences.


Can you believe this? It's not even "Hey, here's a new moronic idea we've been cooking up at Downing Street, bet you didn't think we could out-moron the last one, did you?" - this is set to come into force. It's already been agreed.

And is it every criminal, or just motorists?

When are they going to start fitting dildos to petrol pumps so we can fuck ourselves up the arse to save them the trouble?

BNP on Question Time

God, some people (in fact, many people) have got some stupid fucking views on this.

I will start out by saying I do not agree with the BNP, on any level, about anything. They are far too extreme left-wing (no, they're not right-wing, have a look at how much of their policies include state control, for goodness sake) for me and they are racist and ignorant to boot. Plus, Nick Griffin is an absolute cunt. And finally I think the British public could pick a far more deserving "protest vote" than the BNP (what better way to protest than vote for LPUK).

But does Peter Hain, and those hypocritical fascist cunts the UAF, really believe the best way to stop people voting for the BNP is to ban them? That's excruciatingly naiive. Let them on there! Let Nick Griffin slip up answering questions (and he will). Let the audience "boo" his answers. Fuck me, what better way to let everyone know what a bunch of twats they are than to broadcast the fact on national TV.

I've already given my views on the UAF before, and pointed out the staggering levels of hypocrisy in their beliefs (that requesting the banning of an organisation, however racist that organisation is, is incredibly fascist in itself) and that they should be given even less legitimacy than the BNP for this very reason, not least because they arrogantly believe it is up to them to decide who is and isn't allowed to broadcast their views to the British public.

I bet they get into the QT audience though.

No mention of Red Lights though....

In an article about "Anti-Social" cyclists on the BBC.

The government should do more to target "irresponsible behaviour" by cyclists - particularly when they break traffic laws, a committee of MPs has said.


Good. It's about time they stopped being deified by the media, which only adds to their arrogance and belief that "the rules do not apply to them". I'd like to take this opportunity to remind cyclists that the rules very much apply to you. That includes stopping at fucking red lights as well, something the BBC article neglects to mention.

The thing is, if when confronted about cycling through red lights, or on the pavement, cyclists were even the slightest fucking bit humble, and admitted that they knew it was wrong, and they were very sorry, but sometimes it's just easier and they do it if it's safe to do so. However, most I've come across do not do this - in fact, almost the opposite - they believe they have a god-given right to ignore red lights and cycle on the pavement, because their smugcycle is not fitted with an engine. They make no apology for the fact that they completely flout rules on the road on an hourly basis and even have the outright fucking temerity to get indignant when drivers don't show them the utmost courtesy even though they're not prepared to do the same (such as actually stopping at red lights, or pulling into the side of the road when it's safe to do to allow traffic to pass, or actually looking before they wobble out from a side street straight into traffic).

I've taken a personal resolution that the next arse who "buzzes" me whilst twatting through the pedestrianised area in Broadmead as fast as they can on their stupid fucking bike is going to get pushed off it.

We're not all like that

Just seen Panorama, where two Asian reporters rented a house in Southmead to see what kind of racial abuse they'd encouter.

For anyone who doesn't know Bristol, Southmead is for the most part (obviously) a fucking shithole full of the most lowlife chav scum. Not all areas are that shitty, although many are: Hartcliffe, Knowle West, Whitchurch, Withywood. There are also areas that they wouldn't suffer abuse, but I still wouldn't want to live there; Lawrence Hill, Easton, Barton Hill.

So pretty much the same as any city then.

But then if they'd moved to Clifton or Redland they wouldn't have much of a TV programme would they?

Just thought I'd let you know we're not all chavvy cunts.

UPDATE: You can watch the programme on iPlayer here.

Bristol City Council even treats its employees like idiots

Thanks to the person who mailed me the current front page of "The Source", BCC's intranet site for employees - they were indeed correct that I would find it amusing (or should that be bemusing?).



Have you ever seen anything so condescending in your life? I'd imagine the average age of the Bristol City Council employee is not that of Primary School children, so why on earth are they targetting their campaigns as such? Ooh, let me guess, it's to make it "fun". Fucking cretins. At least we know it's not just the public they treat with disdain, it's themselves as well.

The "dynamic digit". For fuck's sake.

Carter Ruck still being cunts

As reported on wikileaks.

Following parliamentary condemnation, Carter Ruck agreed to amend the order so it would not apply to the parliamentary record, but would, in all other ways, continue to gag the press.

This updated variation was then faxed the Times on 16, October 2009.

The injuction, in all other respects, remains in effect.


Free press? My fucking arse.

MPs want MANDATORY "Nanny" filters on mobiles & PCs

Reports El Reg:

An all-party group of MPs has recommended mandatory nanny filters for all mobile devices and data devices that can access the internet - and wants the UK's Internet Watch Foundation secretive censor system extended to the whole world.


God all mighty. God. All. Fucking. Mighty. I'm literally speechless at how brazenly statist and authoritarian these cunts are now.

The All Party Parliamentary Group on Communications (Apcomms) today recommends: "A global 'notice and take-down' regime is required, and if the IWF cannot provide it then someone else should."


As the Reg quite rightly points out, the MPs might be getting a bit carried away here. Nevertheless, it shows how fucking terrifying their goals are.

And guess what the justification for this is? Have a guess. For me. Go on.

The reason for given for mandatory net filters is "that the default child protection settings are different on different mobile networks and different devices. This is unnecessarily confusing for parents, and so the report recommends that the industry move to a consistent, and 'safe', arrangement."


But of course. Think of the fucking children.

ISPs will be pleased to learn that they are expected to foot the bill for cleaning up all the malware on British PCs. ISPs should establish a voluntary code and if it fails to clean up our PCs, Ofcom should impose one anyway: "A reduction in compromised end user machines is essential to make the Internet a safer place," they write.


This is the start of forcing ISPs to limit access to certain sites.

You don't think the Chinese-style firewall is coming? Think again.

Yet another reason to join Old Holborn on his walk.

Bristol's Traffic Lights

I see the Evening Post have started a campaign about Bristol's traffic lights.

Fair play to them, frankly. I've always been of the opinion there are too many traffic lights in Bristol, and that many of them are deliberately set to cause maximum queues and congestion, firstly to garner public/media support for a congestion charge, and secondly to try and "tempt" people onto the busses.

It's clear to me that the council haven't got a clue what they're doing with traffic lights. Bristol City Council use a system called SCOOT which they use to manage the traffic light system. It is touted as being used for "Bus Priority" (which BCC definitely make use of) as well as "traffic gating" (ditto). However, is this automatic? Going on how poor the traffic light design and operation is in Bristol I'd wager it isn't. And if that's the case, and BCC are setting the timings etc themselves, then who's to say some random jobsworth Traffic Officer sitting in Wilder House has picked the most effective timings?

There are loads of traffic lights around Bristol that are implemented appallingly, and frankly the Traffic Signals department should be fucking ashamed. Take the area of the Temple Circus Gyratory roundabout - fuck me, it's a wonder any cars get through there at all. Why? Because not only are there traffic lights on the roundabout itself, but there are also lights set further back on most of the approach roads too! One of the worst for this is Redcliffe Way. There is a completely fucking pointless set of traffic lights halfway along this road between the Redcliffe Way roundabout by the church and the Temple Circus Gyratory. What these lights are supposed to do is divide the flow between the bus lane and the non-bus (normal) lane. However, instead of having a sensor in the bus lane which would allow the normal lane to be on green until a bus arrives and it is let through (the obvious choice), it is on a fucking timer, where it indescriminately changes the normal lane to red and the bus lane to green, even if there's no traffic in the bus lane. How fucking STUPID is that? Well, very, you might agree, but BCC haven't seen it, as they've gone ahead and implemented it.

There is nothing more fucking annoying than sitting on Redcliffe Way at a red light, when the lights 50 yards in front of you are on green, but you can't go because the bus lane next to you is on green, and no fucker is using it.

Whilst we're in the area, the pedestrian crossing RIGHT after the Temple Gyratory roundabout (can be seen here on Google Maps). What the fuck is the point, where there is another pedestrian crossing a matter of yards down the road, outside Temple Meads station? The ONLY thing this pedestrian crossing does is stop traffic leaving the roundabout, causing more congestion.

There are countless other examples of this, and there's no way anybody could be qualified to do a job of traffic signals designer, and fuck it up that badly, unless they're deliberately trying to make it worse for drivers.

Go figure.

Here is an excellent comment from Bob de Bilde on the evening post article, which pretty much sums up the situation:

Previously, in Bristol as much as possible was done to slow down traffic and generate congestion - this was done to justify a CONgestion Charge.

Now that CONgestion Charges outside of London have proved to be political suicide - look at the Manchester and Edinburgh CONgestion Charge debacles - the authorities now realise that they will have to reverse their congestion causing measures.

Notice that we've not had a peep from the council, the West of England Partnership, the Government Office of the South West, or any of the other multitude of quangos that rule us about CONgestion Charging or an application to the Government's Transport Innovation Fund (TIF). The TIF would have released additional funds for transport to councils prepared to implement CONgestion Charging.

It's all gone very quiet about Charging since Labour were booted out. The Lib Dems want power and they know that if they tried to introduce CONgestion Charging in Bristol, they'd be booted out of the Council House faster than you can say 'Demand Management'.

Back in 2006 we were told that CONgestion Charging would be implemented around 2013, after massive improvement in public transport. Obviously, we've not had our massive improvement in public transport (quelle surprise!) and we're not going to get it anytime soon - therefore it's now politically impossible to implement a CONgestion Charge.

I'm looking forward to the congestion causing measures being withdrawn - starting with all those extraneous traffic lights, so that traffic, both private and public can start to flow again.

However, none of this addresses the important question of when we will get a decent - non-FirstBus-based- mass transit system.

It's as far away as ever - to Bristol's and the Government's eternal shame.

What's going on? EDIT: Answered

Apparently The Grauniad have been gagged from reporting parliament.

Today's published Commons order papers contain a question to be answered by a minister later this week. The Guardian is prevented from identifying the MP who has asked the question, what the question is, which minister might answer it, or where the question is to be found.

The Guardian is also forbidden from telling its readers why the paper is prevented – for the first time in memory – from reporting parliament. Legal obstacles, which cannot be identified, involve proceedings, which cannot be mentioned, on behalf of a client who must remain secret.


Ye fucking Gods. Anyone know what's going on?

EDIT: Answered - just found this.

The latest example of greenwash

Here's yet another example of how companies are taking advantage of all the climate change alarmism, and believe me, this is only going to get worse.

Carrier bags.

Loads of shops now - Marks & Spencer, some Asda stores - fucking Halfords, I've noticed - are no longer giving out free plastic bags, due to the "environmental impact". What environmental impact? You can compress a carrier bag in your fist, it hardly takes up a lot of space. And what if I re-use that carrier bag for something else (which I frequently do, e.g. more shopping trips)? The "environmental impact" is so neglible it's not even worth devoting any precious time to thinking about it.

Let's be clear here - companies give about as much of a fuck about climate change as I do. Companies are charging for/refusing to give you a carrier bag

TO SAVE MONEY.

It has FUCK-ALL to do with the "enivronmental impact" (because there isn't really one). You might say that this is stating the bleeding obvious, which I'd agree, but look at where this could end up:

* Companies massively increasing delivery charges to cover the "cost of the carbon footprint". Like every other eco-charge, this would be an arbitrary amount pulled from their arse
* Supermarkets and other shops charging for parking (the ones that don't currently anyway) to cover the "environmental cost of you driving to the supermarket" (even though that's covered many times over by Fuel Duty if nothing else). Interestingly those people who condemn driving have never suggested how I get my shopping home from the supermarket - maybe I could float it home on a carpet of environmentalists hot air, or sail it home on a river of their bullshit?
* Supermarkets charging you more for non-recyclable packaging, but not providing goods without it so you're forced to pay

The list could go on and on and on. Their are countless fucking opportunities for companies to make extra money on the back of "climate change", and you're simply naiive if you think that in the future they won't grasp them with both hands - some are already doing so.

Fuck you, enviro-loons, for giving them this opportunity.

Brown "optimistic" over economy

Well, fuck me, that's a relief. I guess we can all stop worrying, right?

Prime Minister Gordon Brown has painted an optimistic prediction for the economy, saying it was "simply not true" that tough times are ahead.


He really is clinically deluded, isn't he?

"We've said that the economy will grow by 1.5% next year and more people are moving towards our position," he said.


Who? Even the IMF predicts growth at 0.9% - and they're probably being overly optimistic to encourage growth so we don't go to them next year with a fucking begging bowl.

Just fuck off, Brown.

Ian Hislop bitchslaps Yvette Cooper

What a revolting woman she is.

Fuck you, Ofgem

The "energy regulator", Ofgem, has "warned" that domestic energy bills in the UK could rise by 60% by 2016-17.

Hooray, you fucking cretins, now you've given the already profiteering energy companies carte blanche to raise prices by 60%. I thought the role of the regulator was to, what was it now... ah yes, fucking REGULATE the industry, not hand them golden opportunities on a fucking plate when the mood takes them - explains the actions of the fucking FSA, anyway.

Yes, it may be true that there are valid reasons that prices will go up, but what the fucking fuck is the point of "warning" us? Is there anything we can do about it, besides emmigrating? Now you have issued the warning, even if the prices don't need to increase by that much, they probably will anyway, because the energy companies know they won't get much stick from consumers because they've been "warned".

"These are big challenges. Consumers are already enduring high energy prices," said Ofgem chief executive Alistair Buchanan.


Interesting that you recognise that. Shame you're then so willing to encourage future price rises.

Makes you proud to be Bristolian

.....or not.

A couple from Bristol who scammed almost £50,000 in benefits have been given 77 years to pay the money back.

Brian Payne and Carol Cripwell were also spared immediate jail sentences because of the "catastrophic effect" it would have on their six children.


77 years to pay it back? What a fucking joke.

Miss Brunner said the couple supported six children at home and the benefits they received went on household bills and food.


...and Lambert and Butler, Lambrini, Stella, a Sky TV subscription, Pay As You Go mobile phones and the Bookies, I shouldn't wonder.

She told the court their youngest child had medical needs and they had been striving to support the others.


Hahahaha, it's fucking "ADHD", isn't it. Isn't it, you fucking worthless pikey bitch? But let me guess, "he's a good kid really"?

A comment on the Evening Post article notes that there isn't just 6 kids.

Miss Cripwell has 9 children of her own ranging from 1-21, unless these were virgin births she's been scamming for more than 7 years. As for the statement that the children need her to look after them that's a laugh, she never has, they are out of control and the younger ones would probably benefit from being in care. These kids are the scammers of the future.


Look at the fucking scrounging chav scum:



Turning up to court in a t-shirt and a hoodie - nice.

Adding some more blogs to my list

because the list hasn't been updated for ages!

First, the frankly brilliant Salted Slug.

Also Constantly Furious.

Both never fail to be great reads.

Confirmed: EU *are* going to be monitoring blogs and social networking sites

As confirmed on WikiLeaks, using a system callled INDECT.

This file, marked "confidential", describes development of an EU-funded intelligence gathering system ("INDECT work package 4") designed to comb webblogs, chat sites, news reports, and social-networking sites to in order to build up automatic dossiers on individuals, organizations and their relationships.


I wonder if they'll comb this one? If they do:

FUCK YOU, YOU AUTHORITARIAN SELF-IMPORTANT CUNTS. FUCK YOU, WITH BELLS ON. STICK YOUR MONITORING SYSTEM UP YOUR FUCKING ARSE.

Misprint on the BBC

Here.

MI5 did not link John Cairncross to the Cambridge spy ring for 18 years

More fucking interference

This time, from the nannying, hectoring Department of Health.

Homer Simpson is known for munching doughnuts and swigging beer, but the Department of Health has decided that his family’s lifestyle is healthy enough to enlist them in an anti-obesity campaign.

The government is to sponsor episodes of the cartoon serial about the dysfunctional family for three months in an attempt to improve the nation’s diet and increase exercise levels.


God all fucking mighty. They're interfering with cartoons on TV now. What next?

Officials hope that families slumped in front of the Channel 4 programme will see a reflection of themselves in The Simpsons and realise they should probably be taking more care of their health.


Tut! Families not doing what the Department of Health wants? We can't have that!

What, you think I'm joking?

Gillian Merron, the public health minister, said: “The Simpsons are a much-loved, close-knit family facing some of the everyday challenges that modern-day families go through. They provide a popular and engaging way to get the message to real-life families about simple ways of improving their diet and activity for a healthier lifestyle.”

The health department acknowledges that the Simpsons’ lifestyle is not entirely healthy and this is reflected in the slogan for the £640,000 advertising campaign: “Supporting The Simpsons: Sometimes.”

A spokeswoman added: “The beer-drinking and doughnut-eating is clearly not what we would want.”


You hear that? People drinking beer and eating doughnuts is not what the Department of Health wants. And of course, how you live your life is entirely up to them, as far as they're concerned. How very dare you disagree with the voice of authority.

Ye fucking gods.

God almighty, what an image



Has someone punched him in the stomach?

Either way, he looks pleased that the bogtrotters remembered how much of their country has been rebuilt using scrounged EU grants, and voted their sovreignty away.

A brilliant post on climate change

Obnoxio the Clown has summed up, better than I ever could, exactly how I feel about Global Warming/Climate Change/Whatever you want to call it.

Have a read.

Monocular Mentalist agrees to TV debate "in principle"

report the BBC.

I bet there will be all sorts of conditions if he does. He has to be edited and portrayed in a better light than Cameron/Clegg, there will be all sorts of lighting and make-up tweaks done to stop him looking like the dried-up scrotum he currently resembles, and I guarantee whoever hosts it will not be allowed to pull him up on not answering the question. He will be allowed to roll out Tractor Stat after Tractor Stat with impunity.

Just look at the letter he has written to the Labour party:

Last week we came together as a party to debate the choice for Britain.

In the next few months I will tour the country, meeting the people of Britain to explain our policies, not just on economic recovery and Afghanistan, but from Sure Start and school standards to social care, the NHS, and action on anti-social behaviour.

I will visit every region and every city to speak to people and discuss with the people of the country the choices we face.

I have already said that we are facing the first General Election of the global age. In it the choices are great: between different directions for our country, different choices about economic progress, different philosophies about the future of our public services, different pathways in our relationship with Europe and the rest of the world.

It is right that the parties debate the issues not just in Parliament but in every arena where the public will join in

In momentous times like these, the choices cannot be small choices with small consequences: they are big choices with big consequences.

The choices we make in the next year will define the future of our country, not just for five years, but for a generation to come.

So I believe it is also right that the parties debate the issues not just in Parliament but in every arena where the public will join in the discussion.

It is right that we set the issues before the British people. Others can work out the details but what's important for the country is that there is a wide ranging series of television and radio debates with party leaders that are also able to devote attention to the central issues that matter to families: the economy, public services, how we strengthen our communities, and how we work with the rest of the world.

It is right that there will be a strong focus on the leaders' debates and it is right that in a Cabinet system of government that ministers and opposition ministers also debate the issues in a series of debates on television and radio too.

I relish the opportunity of making our case directly to the people of this country.

Gordon Brown


Count the number of times he says that - "It is right" - such arrogance. Telling us what we are now instructed to believe is right. Lots of the Labour front bench have over-used this phrase in interviews, etc. Why? Who on earth has advised them to say this, and don't they realise it's doing their fascist authoritative image no fucking favours whatsoever?

How many times will he say "it is right" in the TV debate, and how many times, like every PMQs he's ever been in, will he fail to answer the question?

Salt of the earth

Barnsley - birthplace of Michael Parkinson, Dickie Bird, Arthur Scargill. Good, honest, Northern town, is it not?

Turns out - not.

Parents in Barnsley have been criticised by police for drinking alcohol when dropping off and collecting their children from school.


God. All. Fucking. Mighty. Drinking alcohol when collecting their kids is bad enough, but when they drop them off? What time does school start, 9am? 9 O'Clock in the fucking morning, and the parents are drinking alcohol? Sounds like a delightful place, full of responsible parents.

It explains the lower-than-average results, anyway.

I imagine this is how Karen Matthews picked up Shannon - maybe it's something about Yorkshire?

Silly Little Girls

Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson has played down a recent climate change incident, calling the group of protestors "silly little girls".


Um, yep.

When asked what he thought about climate change, he said he found reading about it "all rather boring".

He added: "I read the reports that come in from various scientific bodies and as far as I can work out nobody actually knows whether man is contributing to global warming or not.

"The oil will run out one day and we'll have to come up with something then, but let's not worry about it now."

He also added that he has "absolutely no guilt" about filling up his car.


He's right, of course. But in typical BBC fashion they have to imply that he's wrong, by describing his position on global warming as "provocative".

A great post by Old Holborn

You can stick your CCTV, Police State, wheelie bin Stasi, DNA, WMD, "Social Cohesion", benefits for all, guilty until proved innocent, don't do that it's illegal now, can't say that, ID cards for all, where are you going, what have you been saying/doing/reading, can't photograph that, how very dare you, golliwog banning, we know where you live, we're watching you Soviet Utopia up your arses. Sideways.


Not surprisingly, I agree with every word.

Back

Returning from sunnier climes to the UK, and bugger me if it isn't even shitter than I remember it (and no, I don't just mean the weather). The Irish are going to vote on the EU treaty, they'll probably vote yes, due to what I've heard of shocking tactics by the government trying to stifle the "No" campaign, which will pave the way for Blair becoming EU President. God almighty, I dread to fucking think what could happen with Blair at the helm.
