AKA - “The Circle Jerk”
There’s a few…
Drinking alcohol on all public transport - including cross channel ferries!
Sugar in hospitals - just Wales so far but recall the smoking ban started in Scotland?
Selling half a dozen eggs.
Smoking in cars with children and “potential” play grounds.
Sunbeds - because some slag was stupid. Note [...]
I’ve been away at a stag do this weekend. Up in the Lake District (Prague is just so last decade darhling!)
Anyway as you can imagine if you get a load of lads, beer and a World Cup together one topic of discussion is inevitable… The beautiful game (or in England’s case the hideous one). Not [...]
The days when we gave a toss about the sex of our leading politicians is long gone. Really, it just isn’t important any more to anyone who isn’t a complete obsessive. I just don’t care about the shape of the Australian Prime Ministers genitals, and I do wish that people like this would stop rubbing [...]
I instinctively cavil at this creeping intolerance, masquerading as pious devotion
Remember Claire Short’s claim about how only the UN has moral authority to distribute aid following the tsunami? You know, when she implied that she would rather see people starve than the US providing support? Back when the US and Australia jumped in to help while the UN and EU sat there with their collective [...]

Some people are obsessed to the point where all rational discussion becomes impossible.
What part of Cleopatra was Greek is so difficult to understand?
Lets get it straight – Cleo (strictly Cleopatra VII) was the last of the Ptolemaic dynasty, a bunch of Hellenes who took the country over after Alexander got his and the empire split, [...]
I just watched the latest Day of the Triffids. It wasn’t just that the triffids as presented, and the science, when discussed, was nonsense, but that it really was emotional PC garbage.
The BBC really is incapable of strict rationality.
I am not told what to report by the BBC and I am not forbidden from reporting certain things.
But as the treatment of Dr David Bellamy has made clear, if one does happen to stray from the BBC orthodoxy the road to Coventry is very short, very steep, and very very slippery.
So tell me, when you hear Doris Day singing this what do you think of?
And no, I don’t mean the girl on girl action that rumour has it young Doris was so fond of.
Dirty minded buggers that you are.
I am thinking more puppy dogs, fluffy kittens and the smell of moms fresh baked apple [...]
Tell me, a matter to be addressed in a libertarian society -
All fiat currencies inflate, it is in their very nature. It matters not if they are created by men of the utmost strength, probity and integrity, eventually the weak, mendacious and meretricious will gain control, theft will become the order of the day, and [...]
You got to read that like Private Fraser from Dad’s Army to get the full effect.
As the scientist who helped eradicate smallpox he certainly knows a thing or two about extinction.
And now Professor Frank Fenner, emeritus professor of microbiology at the Australian National University, has predicted that the human race will be extinct within [...]
I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.
