A few years ago in the afternoon C4 used to show a quiz show called “15-1″. It was a proper quiz with quite hard questions and a hint of tactical play. The ultimate prize at the end of a series was a nice classical antiquity and the knowledge that you’d actually got that prize through [...]

It is a truth universally acknowledged by decent people that the shower of utter gits that make-up the British Government are so low that they scuttle on ragged claws along the bottom of an abysmal trench in the Pacific. That’s pretty low but just when you thought they couldn’t sink any further they start using [...]
Who the hell does this man think he is?
Keir Starmer, the Director of Prosecutions, has widened the rift with the Conservatives after rejecting Tory plans to give greater protection to householders who tackle burglars.
This bloke is a civil servant, paid to do the will of Parliament, advise his minister, and otherwise shut the fuck [...]
Kaor my friends.
Tars Tarkas, Kantos Kan, Mors Kajak.
These names mean anything to you?
You poor deprived bastard. I really do feel sorry for you; Barsoom never held you in its thrall.
Although, I got to admit, when I first came across them reading about semi naked oviparous Martian princesses was about as exciting as it got.
Now, I [...]
Richard has yet one more of his postings about the gentleman chair of the IPCC. The railway engineer is expressing an opinion (common parlance – whining) about the range of people saying these horrible things about him.
All of these “Vested Interests”, including some organised group known as “The Sceptics”.
Of course, his foundation has no vested [...]
Today, in the Sydney Morning Herald:
Perhaps the worst aspect is that the blind egotism of a privileged and rich minority is attempting to lay the burden of the necessary sacrifices on the vast majority of the planet’s inhabitants.
That contradiction is reflected in Copenhagen. Thousands of people are there, fiercely defending their points of view.
The Danish [...]
I bow to no man:
Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole, I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch [...]
The Greens, in their own words…
“In my view, after fifty years of service in the United Nations system,
I perceive the utmost urgency and absolute necessity for proper
Earth government. There is no shadow of a doubt that the present
political and economic systems are no longer appropriate
and will lead to the end of life evolution on this [...]
Now it’s up against some stiff competition but this is probably the winner of the Academy Award for most patronisng crap to come out of UKGov 2009.
Worth Talking About ..Watch the ad…
I’d be here all day to properly fisk it so I’ll just say a couple of things. There is nothing yucky (as implied in [...]
I just saw on the telly-box that the Eastern USA is in chaos due to snow. All three DC airports are shut. Did a certain somebody touch down his Gulfstream at Dulles?
I am blogging from my shed with the convection heater running full-tilt. The walk from my back door to the shed left me [...]
GORDON Brown was yesterday accused of signing a £500billion death warrant for Britain’s economy in his desperate quest for a climate change deal.
The Prime Minister has offered a dramatic 42 per cent cut to 1990 levels of carbon dioxide emissions by the year 2020.
And quisling Brown should care if it stuffs Britain? He gets to [...]
Al Gore, occupant of the only private house that can be seen from space, so huge is its energy consumption, wanted to charge punters $1,200 to be photographed with him at Copenhagen. There is a man who is really worried about the planet’s future.
That’s a true cunt’s cunt. That is a practising cunt [...]
1 Then the LORD answered Job out of the whirlwind, and said,
2 Who is this that darkeneth counsel by words without knowledge?
3 Gird up now thy loins like a man; for I will demand of thee, and answer thou me.
4 Where wast thou when I laid the foundations of the earth? declare, if thou hast [...]
There are many that documents that are important. There are many that are beautiful and valuable. In a museum in Cambridge there is first edition of the Principia Mathematica with marginal notes from Isaac Newton. I would chew Mike Tyson’s arms off to own that.
“This is the single most important piece of paper in [...]
I am honestly beyond the pale with Copenhagen. I saw the sole surviving member of the sub-species Homo prescottiuos* on the telly box (for he is the EU’s chief climate negotiator**) and I was staggered. He’s got worse. My brain started oozing out of me lug-holes as he made comments that ranged over the spectrum [...]
