|A Conspiracy of Rogue Agents|
The plot of umpteen straight-to-video movies made in the USA involves some secret government agency sending a bunch of 'off the books' rogue agents forth to get a job done to save their country's ass.
Substitute Vlad Putin's ass for the USA's and that's the plot of the Litvinenkno murder.
Scrambling over bugger all
Civil aviation accounts for 3% of global human-sourced carbon dioxide emissions that's a massive 0.093% of total carbon dioxide emissions human-sourced plus natural. So stopping ALL airline traffic would reduce global carbon dioxide emissions by an amount that makes no bloody difference, and which is also well within the error limits for the measurements.
It really is all about the money, and the bean-counting bastard politicians are lying to you!
|"Do we know what we're doing?|
Your guess is as good as anyone's!"
"When we factor in only natural phenomenon (sic) we cannot account for the recent observed warming trend. This can only be simulated in our computer models if we factor in human activity on the planet."

Translation : "We don't know if climate change is caused by human activity and our computer model works, or the model is wrong and it's all natural."
|If you're thinking of travelling don't!|
That's the message from this government. Rail fares are being allowed to soar, road tax will go up on cars using petrol & diesel, road pricing will become as iniquitous as congestion charges, and if you dare to fly, be prepared to be ripped off by a monstrous Carbon Stealth Tax, which the government will drop down its Black Hole rather than use to save the planet.
Everyone is advised to stay at home and do everything on the internet.

Disappearing banknotes in Deutschland
The German government is under investigation over a currency scam. Crumbling €100 notes have been reported in 17 cities in the last 5 months. "The notes just dropped to bits after I got them out of a cash machine," an indignant victim of the scam reported.
The Berlin forensic laboratory detected acid in the remains of the decaying dosh and an international currency expert has suggested that this is the pilot for a new form of Stealth Tax.
"If the government were to incorporate tiny capsules of acid during the production process," she told BlackFlag News, "the capsules would be crushed by the rollers in the cash dispenser, releasing the acid and causing the banknote to disintegrate.
"Banknotes are, in effect, credit notes. So if the note disappears, the person who got it out of the cash dispenser will have no 'proof of credit owing' while the government will retain the value of the destroyed note."
A Bonanza for Boozers or Scammers?
A group of Dutch trippers to France had an order of wine delivered direct to their homes. The Dutch government charged them duty, they challenged the decision and the advocate general of the European court, Francis Jacob, ruled that only duty levied in the country of origin should be paid.
A number of governments, including corrupt blair labour, appealed to the European Court of Justice. The AG's decision is expected to be upheld this month, so look out for a rash of sad stories of people who tried to buy booze on the Internet and got done over by crooks, who took the order and disappeared with the cash.
Surprise! The AG's decision was reversed. The fix must have gone in, so booze cruises are still on but the internet trade in low duty goods is still a thing of the future.
Who does this guy think he's kidding?
An eagle-eyed election official in Broward County, Florida, reckons he saw a real philatelic prize on a postal vote submitted to the US mid-term elections. He reckons the envelope had a 1918 24-cent stamp on it apparently one of 100 examples of an issue in which the central drawing of a World War One aircraft was printed upside down.
Mint examples of this stamp are worth at least $200,000. The one which the election officials claims to have seen was postmarked, which cuts the value in half. Under the rules of the election, the envelope has to remain in a sealed ballot box until September 2008. What's the betting it's not there when the box is finally opened!
The latest news is that the stamp is thought to be a fake, which someone knocked out on a modern colour printer and stuck on an invalid vote.
Junketing & glad-handing with OUR CASH
Isn't it nice of scotch gordon broon to hand over £100 million of OUR MONEY to buy himself popularity during his junket in Iraq? And isn't it even nicer for tony b. liar to give £500 million each of OUR MONEY to Pakistan & Afghanistan for the same dodgy purpose?
Shedding the lies
corrupt blair labour deliberately understated the cost of staging the 2012 Olympic games to reduce internal opposition to them. Now the truth is sneaking out of hiding. Adding on the missing costs, such as VAT and the soaring price of land, the latest estimate is that the games will cost Britain £8 billion. And that figure will rise and rise for as long as corrupt blair labour fails to get a grip on things.
A Simple & Obvious Solution?
The annual cost to the nation of a heroin addict who supports his/her habit through crime is £45,000. A senior member of the Association of Chief Police Officers has suggested it would be cheaper to spend £15,000 per year on giving 600 'hardcore' addicts their fixes on the NHS.
BlackFlag News would like to point out that it would cost only the price of 600 bullets to provide a once and for always solution to the problem.
What's the benefit of an energy-saving light bulb?
About £3 per year, which is around the cost of the bulb. So if it croaks early, which most of them do, the saving is nil!
Great Xmas bargains on offer!

|Cash before road safety?|
The government's obsession with raising cash via speed cameras is letting drivers high on drink and drugs take to the roads with a reduced risk of being stopped by the police. Why? Because, the Commons Transport Committee has found, the number of traffic police is dropping while the number of speed cameras rises.
A day off for the pagans!
The 282 pagans and devil worshippers in gaol in England & Wales got a day off work and a chance to dress up in their chosen costumes for Halloween. The prison service let them have their fun day to avoid being sued for religious discrimination by trouble-makers.
A soggy time ahead for dissenters!
The Metropolitan Police is getting quotations for water cannons as a means of controlling Islamic rioters. The new approach is expected to reduce the number of police injuries at the hands of thugs and the requirement for expensive riot gear, and it will have the additional bonus of washing dirty streets clean.
The next link in the plan will have to be the construction of a pipeline to bring enough water from Wales to keep the capital's rioters in order. Leaky Thames Water will be unable to fill the additional demand.
corrupt blair labour is running for cover after Scotland Yard's announcement of a significant breakthrough in the criminal investigation into cash for honours. Charges of corruption, false accounting and the illegal sale of honours are expected. But not anytime soon.
Justice! Justice! Justice!
New Italian PM Romano Prodi has found a good way to solve prison overcrowding. His election promises included a pledge to put justice at the head of his agenda. But in office, he has cut the budget of the judicial system by 50% so that there is no money to pay for trials and no one goes to gaol. Brilliant or what!
"The Fix Went In!"
The allegedly Independent Police Complaints Commission has decided there is no need to do anything about the riot-gear-clad police officers, who were shown on national TV performing violent assaults on pro-hunting demonstrators in Parliament Square on 2004/09/15.

The owner of one of the really distinctive voices on radio and television has died at 81. His career, which also included film and theatre work, spanned 50 years but he became best known for his Schweppes adverts during the 1960s and 1970s and the catch-phrase "Schhh ... you know who!"
He became the first choice, for a time, for any drama involving espionage following his success in the 1960s TV series Top Secret and he was well known as an actor who could play comedy without being a natural funny man. He could also do menacing, suave and commanding, as required.
The last 'hardline' president of South Africa's apartheid era has died at 90. He entered his country's parliament at the age of 31 and during 12 years as defence minister, he ran rings around the international arms embargo imposed by disapproving foreign regimes. His reforms during his period as prime minister were seen as largely cosmetic and he became notorious for the repeated 'states of emergency', which he declared during his final 3 years in office.
"He was lucky enough to lead his country when it was prosperous and unlucky enough to survive to watch it descent into a crime- and disease-ridden state, largely due to the neglect of the present corrupt and ignorant regime."
On of the silver screen's more menacing characters has died at 87. He got himself noticed as the bad guy in Shane (1953), which won him an Oscar nomination. 38 years later, he received the best supporting actor award for his role in City Slickers (1991). Born in Pennsylvania, he was a miner, a pro boxer, a model, a waiter and a lifeguard before joining the US army air corps in 1942.
After the war, he gained a degree in drama under the GI bill and immediately found work on the Broadway stage. He branched out into TV and film work, and kept on working for the next 50+ years. He is known mainly for his Westerns and horror films, but he found roles in a wide variety of genres in addition to action films.
The director of M*A*S*H (1970) has died at 81. His best known film was set in the Korean War, but it was really about the contemporary Vietnam War. It spawned a TV series, which lasted 11 years to the Korean War's 3, and which Mr. Altman loathed. He also had success with The Long Goodbye, an adaptation of the Raymond Chandler story.
He was popular with actors but less popular with the cinema-going public. Even so, he managed to keep working as an independent from the studio system for a record 40 years. He received a consolation 'lifetime achievement' Oscar at this year's awards ceremony.
A former KGB/FSB officer, who defected to Britain, has died at 43. He has shared the fate of other prominent people, who dared to criticize the current Russian president, Vlad Putin, who is also ex-KBG. Most of the others were shot or blown up to silence them, but it looks like the FSB decided to get creative with one of their own.
Mr. Litvinenko was admitted to hospital at the beginning of the month and died 3 weeks later of, as yet, unexplained causes. Thallium poisoning and something to do with radioactive isotopes are among the theories, which were bandied about in the press. A murder investigation will follow the inquest.
Traces of radioactive polonium 210 were found in Mr. Litvinenko's urine, at his hotel and at a sushi bar where he met a contact. It is thought to have been administered in gaseous form.
One of the icons of Radio One has died at 79. His Saturday afternoon rock show (1973-78) was essential listening for all fans of the genre, it was voted The Best Music Programme On The Wireless Of All Time and the BBC's decision to drop it was taken as proof that the people running the channel were out of their minds. An Aussie by birth, Alan Freeman came to Britain at the age of 30 and spent the next 40-odd years in broadcasting. He worked for Radio Luxembourg then the BBC, and independent radio when it was introduced. He rapidly established himself as a popular performer, whose talent for 'fluffs' invited good-natured parody. He is credited with inventing the top twenty count-down concept, and his final programme, for Radio Two, celebrated his love of opera. "All right! Stay bright! Not 'arf!"

Researchers at Harvard have found that people who drink lots of red wine can become fat without suffering the consequences of obesity.
The hydroxy-compound reduces the risk of strokes, heart problems and diabetes, and it lets creatures the size of a house live as long as more modestly sized cousins.
At least, that's what's happens with mice. Whether or not the research can be stretched to humans is still to be determined.

We wus furst!
Devon is claiming to have invented the 'Cornish pasty' in 1510. The earliest recipe found thus far for the Cornish version dates back only to 1746. As a result, the European Court of Appellations is currently considering a re-naming petition. Cornwall has entered a counter-claim on the grounds that their recipe has been passed down by word of mouth since 8,000 BC, when writing things down was not yet in fashion in England.
|Talking about the nanny state ...|
Apparently, Rossendale council doesn't trust its customers to do ANYTHING! Why else would it employ a Moslem as a Race Crime Co-ordinator other than to make sure that the locals do it properly?
A whole lot of fuss about almost bugger all!
What passes for the British government keeps going on about what it's going to do to save the planet. But let's cut to the chase. What's on offer? Well, the red part of the above pie chart represents world carbon dioxide production and the black slice is the amount corrupt blair labour is planning to cut, assuming it makes its 2010 target. So let's face it, meeting that target isn't going to make a whole lot of difference.
Especially is a volcano lets go somewhere around the world and gushes out in a week or two, a whole more than Britain's annual output of CO2.
"The costs of climate change are hugely uncertain. The Stern Report is just a guess, and a pretty wild one at that. The results have been stretched to the limits of credibility and beyond."
Let's do a deal!
The British people have reached an historic accommodation with the Moslems. They will be allowed to wear full-body garments, veils, etc., anywhere they like and British people will be entitled to shoot on sight if they feel threatened by a figure with only the eyes showing.
Prime Monster goes Buddhist
tony b. liar will be making a series of apologies for his part in the slave trade in the 17th and 18th centuries. Insiders are taking this as a sign that he is abandoning the Catholic church in favour of Buddhism, and he wants to 'clear his incarnations'. His appearance on the children's TV show Blue Peter is expected to be the highlight of his Reincarnation Guilt Redemption tour.
"Recycle that? No f'in way!"
Locals councils all over the country are refusing to accept for recycling, documents which have been shredded to prevent identity theft.
The excuses include 'it clogs up the recycling machinery' and 'it makes a lot of mess in the lorry'.
"Not us, Gov!"
The Gremlin (according to the woman reading the news on PM, 17:00-18:00, Radio 4, 2006/11/20) is denying poisoning former KGB officer Alexandr Litvinenko, who just happens to be an enemy of the ex-KGB officer who is currently the Russian president Vlad Putin. A man whose enemies have a habit of dying in mysterious circumstances.
"You can't wear that here, lady!"
British Airways is in trouble with the Archbish of York for banning the wearing of Christian religious symbols while encouraging staff to wear the costumes and trapping of other tinpot religions. The company now faces court proceedings, which are expected to enforce its compulsory renaming to Unbritish Airways, a move which will cost it at least £5.2 million for reprinting stationery, changing liveries & uniforms, redoing the website and redesigning tickets. Mr. Canterbury is remaining silent and happy to fly BA.
Its all impure self-interest
Why are scotch gordon broon and the rest of the corrupt blair labour leadership so dead against Scottish & English independence? Because it means they would be out of a job and gordon would lose his parliamentary seat and a shot at being prime monster.
Just a precaution
The BBC defector chairman, Michael Grade, has included a pocket Geiger counter in his signing-on package from ITV. "Just in case," a spokesman for the company said. "And Mr. Grade will not be visiting any sushi parlours anytime soon," she added.
The Bonfire Night Banners haven't got to Romiley. There have been whizz-bangs going off every night of the week in the run-up to Bonfire Night. In fact, it's a wonder the celebrators had any left by Sunday. And whatever happened to the law that made letting off fireworks after 11 p.m. illegal? It looks like another corrupt blair labour gesture they pass the law for the headlines but don't enforce it.

NASA has finally been shamed into agreeing to a repair mission for the Hubble Space Telescope, which is running out of working gyroscopes. The mission is on the planner for 2008.
"The HST has made such major contributes to space science that letting it crash into an ocean somewhere while its working life can be extended would be a crime against knowledge."
Who, in their right mind, would trust this man to save the planet?
"Too much of what this government is doing fails to make an impact because its words are dismissed as spin."

Congrats to Nicky Hayden on winning his first MotoGP championship in the last race of the season. Valentino "The Doctor" Rossi had it all sewn up, or so it seemed. He started the race at Valencia in pole position and 8 points up on Hayden. But he crashed out on lap 5 and even though he got back on his bike, he could finish no better than 13th. So Hayden's 3rd place behind Capirossi and Bayliss (the race winner) was enough to give him the first prize.
The government is at it again
When corrupt blair labour told us the cost of the 2012 Olympics would be £3.5 billion, they left out the VAT because someone at the Treasury vowed on the head of his unknown father that none would be charged. But suddenly, not charging the VAT is illegal, so that's another £613 million to be added to the bill, which is already over budget.

Saddam's defence team plans to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights when they lose their appeal in Baghdad.
The management of the ECHR sees nothing peculiar about trying to protect the human rights of a dictator who has never respected anyone else's.
Brilliant UN scam in Bosnia
The United Nations Development Programme in Bosnia has come up with a truly brilliant scheme to collect up the millions of weapons left over from the 1992-1995 Balkans War.
A firearms amnesty is being coupled with a grand prize-draw. Anyone who hands in a rifle or handgun will get at least one raffle ticket for a chance to win something in the way of consumer goods.
The Bosnian public will be led to believe that at least every other ticket will be good for a fridge. But what the Bosnian public won't be told is that the prizes will come from the mountains of unrecycled fridges, which are cluttering up various parts of the British Isles.
No chance to turn a blind eye
Lord Hutton, who is complaining that his Iraq war report wasn't a whitewash job, didn't get to see a document proving that the dodgy dossier on weapons of mass destruction was drafted by a corrupt blair labour spin doctor rather than the head of the Joint Intelligence Committee, who eventually claimed its authorship and was rewarded appropriately.
But does anyone believe that Hutton wouldn't have given the dodgy draft his 'see no evil' treatment and ruled that it lay outwith his brief?

Law enforcement agencies in the United States are giving up their traditional ten-codes in favour of actual English. Why? Because the process of evolution has meant that some of the numbers have been adapted to local conditions and the codes no longer have universal meanings. So in the interests of safety and getting things right, ten-codes are getting the push in favour of plain American.
