What a load of bollocks!

Right, so Ken’s up before the beak today (The Standards Board) over his spat with a journo from the Evening Standard, which seems to be a perfect excuse for the Grauniad to go in crap reporting mode. Here’s how the Graun reported this story back in February… “Ken […]

The Master Race

ONE of the most prolific criminals in Sandwell is the young son of a British National Party councillor, it was revealed today. Teenage offender Ricky Lloyd – who has been committing crimes since he was 12 – is in custody awaiting Crown Court sentencing for attempted robbery. The […]

How much?

First things first, let me point you in the direction of Dr Crippen and his excellent blog – if you’re wanting to know how and why the NHS is pissing money down the drain you’ll find few better sources of information. All of which reminds me of one […]

Minister for Shite

Over at Chicken Yoghurt, Justin’s finally managed to figure out exactly what Charlie Falconer’s job is… …he’s the Minister for Shite. Devil’s Kitchen’s also very good on this.

The Madness of King Tony

Well that clinches it for me, Blair has finally gone completely off his head. Forget impeaching him, just get a registered community psychiatric nurse and section the fucker now. Ok, we had a fair few dumbass bouts of ‘thinking aloud’ before – remember the whole business of frogmarching […]

You win some, you lose some.

Boris is out as editor the Spectator (resigned)… …and in as Shadow Higher Education Secretary. Looks like his admission that he voting Cameron out of naked self-interest has done him no harm at all. Suddenly Education Questions in the House may become worth watching although, unlike the Beeb, […]

Publish and Be Damned

Oh dear, it seems the publishing world has got itself in rather a snit over the prospect of Waterstone’s proposed takeover of the Ottakar’s chain, as Simon Jenkins notes here: “Waterstone’s, once “the beautiful place”, was this week referred to the Competition Commission for trying to gobble up […]
