No Irony There Then

After a truly dreadful week in Westminster, those giants of political fuckwittery Nigel Farage and Paul Nuttal are once again on the BBC to advise us on how we stop a 52 year old extremist preacher of hate from Kent. No irony there then. Of course they believe you can stop terrorism by creating a feeling of hate and with the destruction of multiculturalism, which makes about as much sense

Bill Posters – The Bengal Tiger

Personal observations from a memorable 7 months spent in Bangladesh, between August 1999 and April 2000. One of the poorest countries on the planet, but where the human spirit seems to be at its strongest. I was busy working on a project in the Bay of Bengal and was based in Chittagong, Bangladesh. Part of my daily duties included ferrying personnel by small boat between the various elements of our

IK€A

Did you know that there are more IKEA catalogues printed than bibles each year ? Hallelujah! Some love IKEA for cheap but more or less well designed furniture and even cheaper hotdogs, while others are a little more critical towards the mega forest munching concern. One of said critics is a truck driver named Emilian. The Romanian told the BBC that he drives for IKEA (but of course he is

UKIP, Dead but won’t lie down, (the gift that keeps on taking).

Meet Richard Billington, a UKIPPER of very little principle, and judging by the Emails he puts his name to, he is a complete and utter moron. From his pre-election blurb: - Richard, who lives in Foxton near Market Harborough, taught for 14 years and now runs a financial services limited company. He joined UKIP in 1990. Richard, said: “Should you elect me, my focus would be to serve the electorate

Revolving Door fantasy

George(Gideon)Osborne hit the revolving door when it was spinning at full tilt He mis-timed his run and had to throw himself in to avoid injury, he had set the controls for Fleet Street, somewhere between the Telegraph and the Times. Blam!, his body hit the spinning glass and he was propelled through at incredible speed, crashing to the pavement dazed As he came to, he looked up and a cold

Article 30 2.0

Obviously there have only been two stories in the news this week... A US state attempting to make being a wanker illegal, (whilst not placing Trump in the state penitentiary) and Kellyanne Conway thinking that a microwavable baked potato had been spying on her boss. She maybe didn't say that, but hey, it makes just as much sense any way you look at it. Seriously though, as Brexit boredom enters

Handbag Hammond’s Budget Backhanders

Well it has been a funny old week in British politics, unless of course you were unfortunate enough to hear Philip Hammond's budget funnies. His budget made as much sense as a Louise Mensch Sunday Politics interview,.. and she makes David Icke appear rational. So as the wheels fell off the budget, and 'Spreadshit' Phil became as popular with Tory backbenchers as Douglas Carswell at a Nigel Farage dinner, the

Robots Replace 90% Of Workforce

In this civilised and modern world we live in, where people like to blame immigrants for taking their jobs and straining public services, let us not forget what is actually going on with the once massive sector of production employment. For decades now millions of people all over the world have been replaced by robots and the owners of a Chinese factory in Dongguan will tell you why. Recently 90% of its

The Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn – a reply to Owen Jones by Tom London

Owen Jones has written an article this week in the Guardian calling on Jeremy Corbyn to stand down. I take what Jones says seriously but I think he is wrong. Some may dismiss what Jones says by attacking the man and not the argument. Jones himself anticipates this - “The party’s warring factions now refuse to accept that differing opinions are expressed in good faith - there have to be
