Book of the Month:
The conspiracy of the 20th Century uncovered!
Conventional historical wisdom would have it that Adolf Hitler's entanglement with his niece, Angela Raubal, ended with her alleged suicide on 1931/09/18. But by then, an affair at a critical time in the future Führer's political career had produced a child, which placed all three lives in danger.

An Airbus 380 whispered into London's Heathrow airport on the 3rd Thursday of the month, impressing the hell out of a vast gang of spectators. Assembled from bits made all over Europe, including British wings, the monster can carry 550 passengers in various levels of comfort. It also has room for a gym, shops and other leisure facilities for those who can afford them.
"Not us, Gov!"
Gone & largely forgotten
Stay out of the sun or you will get skin cancer and die, the medical profession has been saying for years. Now, they have a new message Stay out of the sun and your body won't make vitamin D, so you'll get cancer, osteoporosis, arthritis and schizophrenia!
The diminutive, manic, athletic, much bespectacled front man of Freddie & the Dreamers has died at 69. His band was a rival to the flood from Merseyside in the 1960s and Freddie was an archetypal geek before the term became universal. He also appeared in musical films, short features, cabaret, pantomime and TV shows. Freddie disbanded the Dreamers in 1969 after success on both sides of the Atlantic. He reformed the band in 1976 and they continued to tour until 2001, when ill-health forced him into retirement.
As drainage has never been one of Stockport Council's strengths, especially in Romiley, it has decided to give up the struggle and turn a vice into a virtue. Under the terms of the council's new Water Reservation Order parts of the village will be allowed to remain permanently flooded, and the water will be piped south and sold in drought areas during the summer.
No more fun until it rains & rains!
Romiley is normally a riot of colour in spring as the bulbs come out. But not this year. All we've had at the BlackFlag News offices is 4 daffodils (not shown as they're past their best) and this solitary red tulip.
Romiley goes a bit blue
Romiley goes a bit bluer
Trivial-Democrats? Useless swindlers would be more accurate
Safe Stockport? That's a joke!
The police investigation into the labour policy of trading honours for cash and/or loans has been extended to an attempt to relieve a case of constituency-blocking. The labour turned independent MP for Blaenau Gwent was offered a chance to sneak off to the House of Lords before last year's general election (which he didn't accept) to give labour a shot at winning the seat back.

The retrial in Frankfurt of Armin Meiwes, alias the Kassel Cannibal, has resulted in a conviction for murder and a life sentence. Mr. Meiwes was sentenced to 8½ years in gaol for manslaughter in 2004 but the federal prosecutor wanted a murder conviction on his CV. The court duly obliged, sparing the German state the cost of further trials until the German legal bureaucracy got a satisfactory verdict.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
As a public service, Jenson Farrago is offering access to his collection of bogus lottery, phishing and other email spam.
The current temporary PM would like his disgusted customers to believe that the whole new labour project was nothing to do with him. The sleaze and incompetence was all the fault of that prescott bloke, who was acting as a puppet master behind the scenes and pulling the CTPM's strings.
Proposition : The labour party is the party of the criminal.
tony blair would like people to remember 9 good years. Unfortunately, no one is picking any of the years after 1996.
"Excuse me, new labour, it's your mess."
The No-Blame Game
Our temporary prime monster is claiming that he will rescue public services. But as they need rescuing from him, does that mean he'll do the decent thing and commit suicide?
Ignorance and deception
Human Wrongs, now!
Details, folks, details!
Another failed gimmick
Want some taxpayers' cash? No problem!
Leave the old sod out to grass
After a secret study performed between 1996 and 2000, the Defence Intelligence Staff have explained 'flying saucer' sightings. They are, in fact, streaks of bright plasma formed by electrical discharges in the atmosphere. They can be moulded by winds into streamlined shapes and they can appear to hover, move at incredible speeds and change direction abruptly because they are just lumps of ionized gas with very little mass. So now you know!
What a bunch of effin' jobsworths!
Criminals CAN profit from their crimes in Britain
You scratch my back . . .
More shredders on overtime
No wonder people call them Trivial Democrats!
No conscience, no decency
Dodgy builders in Scotland?
The Man Who Stole Your Pension
The man who is taking £7.3 billion per year out of private pensions can look forward to a personal pension of £100K per year adjusted upward for inflation when he finally leaves us in peace. To get the same pension in the private sector, he'd need a pension pot of £3 million, which would be taxed at 55%.
new labour's decision to arrest, detain and then release General Pinochet of Chile for cheap, party political reasons cost the country £4 million (most of which went to lawyers) in direct costs. We also lost out on trade with Chile to the tune of £60 million and a £1 billion order for ships was cancelled.
Not such a good deal at Barclays
Two Shags prescott will be liable for a tax bill of £366,000 per year on his grace & favour, taxpayer-funded homes if he's no longer doing a proper job but retaining his ministerial perks. The same applies to ousted home sec. dave blunk, clark's predecessor.
Missed hospital appointments are costing the NHS hundreds of millions of pounds every year. In fact, the amount wasted in the last year adds up to the size of the current NHS deficit. The government vowed to do something about it last year. As a result of new labour's efforts, the situation has got worse.

In case you were wondering what the IRA are up to the Spanish police have arrested a couple of them with a gang which was smuggling tobacco from low-tax Spain to high-tax Britain.

Senior British officers in Iraq are becoming increasingly worried about unnecessary casualties and deaths of the troops due to the failings of our government. Soldiers on the ground have seen what has happened in the past and they are becoming reluctant to open fire in dangerous situations for fear of falling foul of a witch-hunt by greedy human rights lawyers.
Re this item in last month's bulletin:
BlackFlag News acknowledges a decimal point cock-up. The amount to be repaid was, of course, £7.7 billion.
Val Guest, who has died at the grand old age of 94, was, at times, an actor, a songwriter, a writer and adapter of scripts, a journalist, a director and a producer. He directed over 50 films and wrote scripts for even more. His work included films featuring the comedian Will Hay, the cast of Life With The Lyons, and the Crazy Gang; the 1960s classics The Day The Earth Caught Fire and Jigsaw; and Hammer horror films. In the 1970s, he wrote and directed episodes of The Adventurer, The Persuaders and Space 1999 [all still showing on ITV 4]. He also launched the Confessions of series of films.
Olympic gold medalist at middleweight in Helsinki in 1952, he became the youngest ever holder of the world heavyweight boxing championship in 1956 at the age of 21. His firsts also included being the first ever deposed champion to regain the title, which he did in a match with Ingemar Johansson in 1960. His reign was ended by Sonny Liston in 1962. He failed to take the title for a third time from Muhammad Ali in 1965 and his career ended in 1972 when a rematch against Ali was stopped due to eye damage. Floyd Patterson remained involved in sport until ill-health forced his retirement from public life in 1998. He died this month at the age of 71.
It was dubbed Harold's Preference during the Wilson era, when this nominee for the 'Worst Prime Minister of All Time Award' was trying to make out that he was a man of the people (whom he heartily despised). The brown sauce has been produced in Aston, Birmingham, since 1903 but the firm was sold to a French outfit in 1988 and then it became part of the Heinz empire in 2005. Heinz now plans to close the non-viable Birmingham site and shift production to Elst in Holland.
After spending 5 years with his acres of posters, this persistent Iraq War protester is about to be moved on as new labour has finally found a judge willing to see its point of view. Mr. Haw is refusing to budge and his supporters are advising him to get some other dotty old judge to rule that shifting him violates his human rights.
This means that, from next month, the blue ones will be history until someone can supply a safe, natural blue dye. They will be replaced by boring white ones.
He thinks it's in the interests of the country for him to stay on to the last gasp. "A leadership contest will paralyze the machinery of government," he claims as if that would be a bad thing. But as far as the British public is concerned, the less this government does, the better off we are.
