Stockport council's ruling Triv-Dems have come up with an interesting solution to the vexing Xmas issue ban it, ignore it or do it? They have issued Romiley village with an Xmas tree in a protective sock.

Recycling? Cheek more like!
Something seems to have gone seriously wrong with the weather
Prisons are facing a real headache over smoking. The law defines a cell as equivalent to a private home, so the government can't ban smoking in them. But if it doesn't ban smoking in prisons, then it will face compensation claims from non-smoking prisoners and screws, who feel that their health has been damaged by passive smoking.

Has the drug trade bunged new labour?
home sec. charlie clark is keen to let dealers stroll around with their pockets crammed with pot, heroin, coke, speed, horse tranquillizers and anything else they think they can flog. And if stopped by the police, the dealers will be able to claim, thanks to new boundaries in new labour leniency, that the stuff is purely for personal use.
Police cut out the middle man & become their own customers!
The character actor who became the archetypal man-in-charge and authority figure has died at 89. Mr. Keen's career on the stage and in films and TV series began after his service in World War II. He established himself as the ideal candidate for the role of either the managing director of a business or a gangster, and he played 'M', the head of the SIS, in half a dozen Bond films.
The owner of one of the most recognizable voices in Britain has died at 85. After winning a selection process involving 9,000 candidates, she became the GPO's second voice of the speaking clock from 1963 to 1984. She was replaced by the male voice of Brian Cobby (whose voice can still be heard) when BT was launched as a public limited company.
The 5th earl of Lichfield, who switched from the Guards to a highly successful career as a photographer, has died at 66. He had the connections to photograph everyone from pop stars and 'celebs of the day' to royalty, and he had the talent to achieve success both as a snapper and as a businessman, proving that being posh doesn't automatically turn you brain-dead.
The Mexican wrestler/sports entertainment star who was styled as Latino Heat has died at 38. A member of Mexico’s 'first family' of professional wrestlers, he worked in Japan as well as Mexico before joining ECW in the United States. He moved on to WCW and then to the WWF (later WWE) shortly before the McMahon family empire swallowed up its rival.
One of the best footballers of his generation has died at 59. Eleven years with Manchester United, 37 caps for internationals with the Northern Ireland team and an award of European Footballer of the Year, Best had a footballing talent which was matched only by his capacity for self-destruction via boozing. A liver transplant 3 years ago gave him a second chance, but 'the man who could never say no' was unable to take it.
The Shadows' first drummer has died at 62 after an accident at his home. Tony Meehan joined the music scene in his early teens and he was 16 when the joined the Drifters, Cliff Richards' backing band, who became the Shadows after objections from the American band with the same name. After 3 years and hits such as Apache, FBI and Man of Mystery, he left to form his own bands and work as a session drummer, composer and record producer. His partnership with ex-Shadow Jet Harris produced the hits Diamonds and Scarlett O'Hara, which were produced by Tony Meehan.
The biggest casualty of George W. Bush's "War on Ter'r" is the International Space Station. NASA is being squeezed and it has abandoned all pretence of doing research on the ISS by announcing a budget cut of $350 million.
new labour's big idea of a ban on drinking on public transport seems to have sunk back into the drink-sodden fog from which it emerged.
Cowboy country extended
The government is so keen to get its homebuyer guide scheme up and collapsing by 2007 that it plans to put home owners at the mercy of cowboy home inspectors, who will have had no more than 18 months of part-time training.

Boozing is okay in moderation Official!
A study in Pittsburgh has found that non-drinking elderly people suffer faster mental decline that those who indulge in 'mild to moderate' drinking. Other studies have found that drinking alcohol, particularly red wine, can be good for the heart but health professionals are still saying that 24-hour binge-drinking, as advocated by new labour, is a bad idea.

There is supposed to be a ban on letting off fireworks after 11 p.m. other than on Bonfire Night. It would be interesting to hear how new labour imagined the ban would be enforced, especially if the police take up to 2 days to respond to a 999 emergency call. Logic dictates that the offenders and the evidence will be long gone by then, and the whole thing smacks of another of antonio b. liar's gimmicks when you think about it.

The X-word that must not be spoken
Anyone going to the People's Republic of Lambeth in London is warned that they won't be doing Xmas lights this year. The street lights are officially 'Winter Lights' so that followers of other religions will not be driven into a bomb-hurling rage by having to deal with the X-word.

Ye Olde Oak ham contains 37% water, which makes the meat content a hell of a lot more expensive than the price per tin would suggest. And most other types of ham, sold in tins or as slices in supermarkets, contain at least 20% of water.
A Hindu organization is objecting to one of the Royal Mail's Xmas stamps, which carries an image taken from a 17th Century painting. The original work is to be found in a Bombay gallery and it shows an Indianized version of a European painting called 'The Holy Family with St. Anne and the Two Angels'. The objectors are citing the need for political correctness in the 21st century as their main reason for wanting the stamp withdrawn.
