Oh dear, how sad, heh heh, never mind.
Another one bites the dust, rather than bats and birdies. Those ones in the Irish boglands are looking like a sound investment aren’t they?

Oh dear, how sad, heh heh, never mind.
Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more; Or close the wall up with our English dead. In peace there’s nothing so becomes a man As modest stillness and humility: But when the blast of war blows in our ears, [...]
I just heard Cherie Blair is to be made a CBE for “Services to Charity” and “Women’s Issues”. Now to be fair to Ms Booth she has advanced the position dramatically of at least one woman. Or perhaps she ought to have got it for “Services to Drama” for she (a) owns the world’s largest [...]
I got me a Chrissy pressie.
I put up a post a short time back, telling you all of my love for Thomas Grays Ode on the Death of a Favorite Cat Drowned in a Tub of Goldfishes.
Well, that posting led me back to this one, from some years earlier, and in turn I read this [...]
And the story to go with it…
Socialism, thy name now is theft and greed. My old friend Viscount Tonypandy is currently powering most of the North of Cardiff by spinning in his grave.
Notice that it is Dress Down Friday at the Olympic Stadium, and the place is completely empty. Wouldn’t want our Royal couple lynched… [...]
Oh for fuck’s sake! how delusional can you get?
“I AM big, it’s politics that got small!” Bless his venal vacuous little heart, if he thinks he can get away with this then he is more out to a £5000 a plate lunch, than I already knew he was.
More astute readers may have noticed I have been away for a week. Some may even have cared [/sob].
Anyway, I have been Elsewhere. Specifically the Lake District. Upon the return journey this afternoon (which was thankfully clear) overhead info boards down the M6 and M61 was displaying “helpful advice” for those planning on journeying to [...]
I like the North West England. I like Manchester. My adoptive metro area has much to be proud of. But in a city of over three and a half million souls (roughly the size of the Atlanta metro area for our American readers) but some inevitably have to be lower than the Marianas absymal…
A vicar [...]
I always thought iDave was a chronic fuckwit but this takes the last Hob-Nob from the packet and royally, nay, imperially spreads it’s seed upon it. This is not even something I could grace by saying I disagree with politically - it is just that fucking mental in the noggin. This bloke allegedly has a [...]
Image H/T PetaPixel
The images have a similar theme: a red Routemaster bus against a greyscale Westminster Palace background. Both shots of familiar London landmarks and fairly innocuous as such images go. At least you would think so.
The image at the top is the intellectual property of Temple Island Collection (TIC), a company that produces souvenir [...]
Following Clarkson’s recent outburst much Sturm und Drang has followed.
I have just one thing to say on it (I should have said this earlier perhaps but I was curious to see if I’d read it elsewhere…)
I haven’t so here goes.
Jeremy Clarkson is a very wealthy man who writes books and newspaper columns so [...]
“I stood in my front room and wept.” From Sharron Davies MBE, that’s something: she is more a doer than a weeper. But the former Olympic swimmer, and now BBC sports personality, has not even moved into her new house, a Grade II listed pile in Wiltshire, yet the dream is in danger of turning [...]
The Leftist idea of the world seems to be that there are two kinds of people: good, intelligent, caring, compassionate, thoughtful ones - they call them the Left - and nasty, stupid, unthinking, thoughtless and avaricious ones, called the Right. And these latter have always been wrong about everything, throughout history. Name a Bad Man [...]
The UK could be primarily powered by a secure and inexhaustible supply of renewable energy by 2030 without the need for new nuclear power plants, according to a report commissioned by WWF.
And if you have a cow you don’t need I have some magic beans…
Between 60% and 90% of the nation’s electricity could come [...]
Aren’t fascists cute when they’re young?
