It's official! It wasn't scotch gordon who pushed labour into a deposit losing, record breakingly bad 5th position behind the Greens and the BNP at the Henley by-election (Boris Johnson's old seat). It was harriet harperson with her plans to discriminate against white, able males in the workplace.

17 weeks. That's how long the 6-week job of redoing the drainage in Romiley Park lasted. The park, especially the centre feature, now looks like a training ground for tanks and the council seems to have abandoned it completely.
Drivers who stray off course even though their vehicle has a sat-nav system now have a decent alibi. Researchers at Bath University have found that the electrical & magnetic effects of the aurora borealis can prevent sat-navs from locking on to satellite signals and also scramble the data coming down to the ground.

If the labour party gets its way and has lap-dancing clubs called "sex encounter establishments" then all government offices should be renamed "fraud encounter establishments".

Launched in 1967 by our present Queen, this Cunard luxury liner was decommissioned in the presence of the same lady. It was the fastest passenger liner around, and the best way of crossing the Atlantic by far. It survived duty as a troop carrier during the 1982 Falklands war and finally fell victim to the latest 'elf & safety regulations and fashion.
One of the greats of rock 'n' roll had died at 79. His first single, the eponymous Do Diddley, was released in 1955 and he enjoyed a string of hits for the next 7 years. He created a body of work which was embraced by Buddy Holly, the Rolling Stones, the Yardbirds, the Who, Bruce Springsteen, et al.
The man who brought Candid Camera to Britain has died at 80. The concept was a big hit in the United States and the British viewing public embraced it enthusiastically. Mr. Routh was an amateur hoaxer, who succeeded in getting people to pay him for doing it. The programme ran for 7 years in the 1960s, hitting the buffers only when a more laid back attitude in Britain deprived the hoaxes of their initial impact.
The drummer with the essential Sixties band The Nice has died at 65. He had been working on the London club circuit for 5 years when the band began its 2-year run. Going beyond pop to quote from classical music, jazz and stage musicals, Brian Davison, Keith Emerson, Lee Jackson (& David O'List) rattled the top of the British charts and performed with full orchestras before the band self-destructed.
The last of the US Air Force's 'gravity' nuclear weapons were removed from RAF Lakenheath "sometime in the last few years" on the orders of President Bush. Our accident-prone labour government has such a shameful history of losing important items that Pres. Dubya felt safer with his nukes stored elsewhere.
She failed to declare donations to her leadership campaign, she became mired in sleaze despite a thorough whitewash job by the Electoral Commission, and she faces being banned for a whole day!!! from the Scottish Parliament.
The Aussies are going home, abandoning the not-so-good life in credit-crunch Britain and Canada is offering to fast-track visas for Brits with talents. The way things are going, just the old, the sick, the unemployable and the bogus asylum seekers will be left behind to inherit the wreckage of the new labour project!
He's pleading stress as the reason for abandoning his safe labour seat but the nudge-nudgers are saying that he's getting out one jump ahead of embarrassing questions from the sleaze-busters about expenses payments to family members.
An American science-fiction author, who established himself in the 1950s and 1960s, has died at 77. He wrote 10 novels and some 200 short stories while working as a magazine editor and publisher, a book reviewer, whose offerings were good enough to be published in collected form, and as a lecturer/instructor at writers' workshops. His Cold War novel Who? (1958) was made into a film starring Elliot Gould and Trevor Howard.
"It was the baggage wot dun it!" Mrs. Clinton's bid to become the first female president of the United States of America hit the buffers way later than it should have because she refused to face the inevitable.
Dave the Leader gave the Tory leader in the European Parliament the job of weeding out all the cheating bastard MEPs, who are breaking the rules on expenses. And lo! The first thing he did was shop himself for getting half a million quid paid to his own company.
Caution over Canada
It's all about the money!
It used to be Ulster that said "No!" but the Irish republic had issued a rebounding negative to the Lisbon treaty in the only referendum held on it. The result was 28% said NO, 25% said yes and 47% Did Not Vote. We British were promised our own referendum but, unfortunately, the promise came from the labour party and scotch gordon reneged on it.
The Lisbon Treaty may be dead, but . . .
French name & shame worst man in the world
Research by the University of Buffalo has shown that most people were right all along. Counselling is a complete waste of time and money, and public sob-ins don't help people who indulge in them to cope with tragic events any better than those who grieve in private and keep their dignity in public. Lip-tremblers come off worse but creating a soggy British upper lip is one of new labour's core objectives, so no improvement in British stoicism is expected.

The International Astronomical Union has sunk itself deeper into disrepute via its attempts to define a planet; an exercise performed without consulting most of its own membership. Worse, the whole process has been dismissed as scientifically pointless as the concept of a committee voting on which bodies receive planet status is "just not science".
Why do senior civil servants keep leaving top-secret documents about Al Qaida and how to finance a terrorist organization on trains? It's all part of a scheme to get them banned from the indignity of having to travel with the common herd on trains and get they their own official car plus chauffeur for their document-reading journeys.
The space shuttle Discovery's primary mission for this month used to be to deliver the Japanese Kobi module to the ISS. But the shuttle also took along an essential piece of last-minute supercargo a polish plumber.

goes to Lewis Hamilton, who put himself out of a good chance to win the Canadian Grand Prix by running up the back of Mr. Raikkonen's car in the pit lane. Raikkonen was waiting at a red light but Hamilton didn't spot the red light and also didn't spot that Raikkonen was stationary.
When the EU constitution is in place, the French (with German help) will insist on a European army. Which means more cash extracted from British taxpayers, more cash going to usual suspects and more cash lost from the EU budget to fraudsters.
