I bet Gary Glitter regrets not asking Jim to fix it instead of taking his computer to PC World.
That is a terrible joke, via Sickipedia.
But there is a sub-plot. I fix computers. I don’t care what is on the HD(s). If there is obvious criminality there then expect a call from the dibble. If not [...]
What is Global Governance?
Easy, it’s global government, but the words are slimed with weasel in an attempt to make them more palatable.
When it comes to rich global elites, she would know:
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the Clinton Global Initiative Monday “One of the issues I have been preaching about around the world is collecting [...]
…prepare for a nasty surprise.
Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre authorities obviously don’t believe they have enough authority so they are maneouvring to grab a little more power for themselves. They are proposing to ban smoking in parks and other public open spaces and people can now be cautioned or fined for not having a plastic bag.
I have been to USA several times. I like Americans. I don’t like American government. Now I thought nothing came close to the sheer mendacity of the UK’s Home Office and it’s immigration and nationality directorate. But I looked something up last night. You see as a UK citizen I don’t need a visa to [...]
Custer’s Revenge (also known as Westward Ho and The White Man Came) is a controversial video game made for the Atari 2600 by Mystique, a company that produced a number of adult video game titles for the system.

While London looks increasingly like a city under martial law it is nice to see the Met still have time for pursuing nonsenses as well as going round looking like characters from some post-apocalyptic FPS game…
There were no complaints from the public when a Mayfair gallery exhibited a dramatic modern rendering of the ancient Greek [...]
The government will be able to monitor the calls, emails, texts and website visits of everyone in the UK under new legislation set to be announced soon.
Internet firms will be required to give intelligence agency GCHQ access to communications on demand, in real time.
The Home Office says the move is key to tackling crime and [...]
There are all sorts of issues in libertarianism and small governmentism, and some are more important than others, and we all have our particular things we focus on. My own normal focus is “social” liberty, the puritan stuff about sex’n’drugsn’craplikethat, and other than polluting the comment sections of other blogs (sorry Tim!) in particular I [...]
An Arab expatriate living in Saudi Arabia has been sentenced to six years in jail and 600 lashes after being convicted of sorcery and fraud, Arab News has reported.
The 40-year old foreign resident appeared before the Riyadh General Court earlier this week, accused of swindling SR550,000 (US$147,000) from a local woman by promising her a [...]
…in the water.
Huhne, no longer able to cling to power like the proverbial turd to a blanket, has finally resigned after being charged with perverting the course of justice. Now comes the circling of the climate change wagons. Neil O’Brien, Director of Policy Exchange writes in the Daily Telegraph:
The next climate change minister must learn [...]
One of my, er, “themes” is something like this: the modern, with-it libertarian needs to see our problems as more than an “us versus the State” thing. It’s not just the State. In fact, in many aspects, the behaviour of the State in Britain (and elsewhere) is not so much a driving force as a [...]
…that there was something very fishy about the whole Stepping Hill nurse of death case.
I’m going to go with clinical error (hospital) + human error (experienced nurses) = It was not an error, it was murder and we reckon that bitch right there did it, fancy another hobnob?(scapegoat)
Charges have been dropped, if in a rather [...]
