Britain has entered a death struggle with a new skiving epidemic. The nation's shirkforce is quoting the Health Sec.'s advice to justify staying at home and building a bit of a sniffle into a full-blown case of Mexican Lazy Swine Flu.
"Three years ago they came, forever altering the future of humanity." Everyone thought Earth: Final Conflict was just a science fiction series, the last shot from the Gene Roddenberry bow. But the Taelons must be here. Why else would the Arts Council be paying out £1.3 million of taxpayers' cash for a statue of the British Companion's head some 66 feet tall on the site of the former Sutton Manor colliery at St. Helens?
The producer of that Great British Institution the Carry On film has died at 95. The first of the line, Carry On Sergeant (1957) was originally a light romantic drama, which was converted into a low-budget comedy. It became a cult hit and spawned over 30 follow-ups in the same vein over the next couple of decades. The actors got peanuts and Mr. Rogers got rich. He produced over 100 films in all, but none with anything near the success of the Carry Ons.
This writer, broadcaster, MP and celebrity cook has died at 84. 1968 was his big break through year he made a celebrated series of TV dog food adverts with a bloodhound called Henry and he joined the panel of the Radio 4 show Just A Minute, which is about to go into its 41st season. He won the Isle of Ely as a Liberal MP in 1973, and survived in Parliament until 1987, when he received his K. He is famous for his calm (even miserable) exterior, which masked a life which involved many family and external feuds.
Lord George, governor of the Bank of England from 1993 to 2003, has died at 70. He began his working life as a trainee at the Bank and stayed there through his working life, apart from a 3-year stint with the International Monetary Fund in the 1970s. He received a life peerage in 2004. He is remembered as the man who took the Bank into independence in 1997; when Gordon Brown decided he didn't want the blame for setting the bank rate, even though his disastrous policies dictated the level of the national interest rate.
The novelist who attempted to picture the psychology of the future has died at 78. Having survived a internment camp when the Japanese occupiers of Shanghai turned nasty, which he recalled in his novel Empire of the Sun (1984), he studied medicine but chose to be a novelist and short story writer instead of a psychiatrist. He was one of the architects of the New Wave in British speculative fiction, specializing in disasters of the sort described in his first novel The Drowned World (1962). Two of his novels, Crash (1973), an exercise in technoporn, and Empire of the Sun, were turned into successful films (directed by D. Cronenberg and S. Spielberg respectively).
Something In The Blood
RLC authors have devoted quite a lot of time to the possible causes of vampirism as well as the actions of vampires. This novel provides a plausible explanation for the phenomenon while exploring the problems of people who have to deal with vampires as predators and prey; sometimes both simultaneously.

Global warming is being blamed for mild winters and an earlier onset of spring and the hay fever season, which is expected to start 3 weeks earlier than normal this year. One or two small problems, however. We haven't had a mild winter and global temperatures aren't rising. In fact, they've gone down to 1990s levels over the last decade. But as global warming now has the status of a religion, what do a few facts matter?

Complaints against the police are up 300% on the level of complaints made in 2004/05. Most of them are about coppers failing to make much of a job of investigating crimes. 30,000 people made a complaint in 2007/08, and research by the British Crime Survey found that the police pissed off at least 300,000 more people, who didn't complain.

"You can't say that!"
The French & German delegates have a common message for the G20 conference (which started off costing £20 million but suddenly shot up to £50 million in the Daily Mail). They object to brown attempts to run their economies into the ground because the Sarco-Merkel Axis is quite capable to doing that without any help from scotch gordon.

A supermarket chain's marketing dept. has come up with a brilliant idea for their fish dept. They're going to renaming pollack to 'colin'. From now on, they would like people who want to buy raw pollack to use the French name for cooked pollack. And to confuse the customers even more, 'colin' will be put in packs with a design inspired by the works of Jackson Pollock, the boozy American action painter.
Adding insult to injury
Believe it or what!
It's a rule of football that the original crime always goes unpunished and its only the retaliation which attracts a penalty. The same appears to be true for the G20 riots. BFN has had eyeball of evidence that organized gangs confronted the police on April Fool's Day and filmed the encounters, hoping to capture a spot of retaliation.
A major diversion from the G20, and the screw-up made of the economy by scotch gordon & Co., is shock-horror stuff about the porn which teenagers are seeing on the Internet on a daily business. Apparently, they are so used to seeing perfect bodies in action that they find normal, everyday, non-porn-star bodies a turn-off.

Following its not terribly successful attempt to launch a satellite into orbit this month, North Korea is to receive aid from the British taxpayer in developing its space programme. This is part of a campaign to buy foreign friends for scotch gordon, who has none at home.

British taxpayers' cash in action
From this month, foreign drivers who use mobiles at the wheel, tailgate, etc. will be liable to on-the-spot cash fines. Why that grabber scotch gordon didn't think of this before is a mystery, but he's also strapped on sequestration of the vehicle of a foreign driver who can't pay up on the spot to ensure that the criminal makes an effort to pay his or her debt to society.

In future, British troops will be encouraged to leave chewing gum all over battlefields to gum up the bad guys, and they will also leave tempting chocolate bars, which explode in the heat, around for the Taliban to nick; to their peril.
