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.
Scrambling over bugger all
"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."
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.

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.
A Bonanza for Boozers or Scammers?
Who does this guy think he's kidding?
Junketing & glad-handing with OUR CASH
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?
What's the benefit of an energy-saving light bulb?
Great Xmas bargains on offer!
"... in a democracy, it is practically inscribed in law that inferior persons must become the leaders."
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!
A soggy time ahead for dissenters!
Justice! Justice! Justice!

This public service warning posted by Romiley Auction House, 11a Riverside Drive, Romiley, GB.
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!"
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!"

We wus furst!
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.
Let's do a deal!
Prime Monster goes Buddhist
"Recycle that? No f'in way!"

Just a precaution
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.
Autumn is here at last
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.
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."
"No amount of spin-doctoring will turn a government which is dishonest and clueless into one which is trustworthy and clueful."
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
Blame it on global warming; they do it with everything else!
tony blair's adventure in Iraq is costing the British taxpayer £1.4 billion per year. No wonder the lying sod is so opposed to the death penalty!

These days, it's religion. Why else would the former World's Favourite Despot have got himself photographed clutching a copy of the Koran when he's well known for running a secular dictatorship?
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.

The Germans blacked out Europe during the first weekend of the month by turning their heating up. The surge in demand caused cascade failures all over the Continent until power stations were able to turn up the wick. Britain was not affected.
