Vatican Spin In Action
Her Majesty's Space Agency will open its doors for business on April 1st in Swindon, home of the nation's steam railway museum. It will have a budget of £270 million and it will combine the nation's space efforts under one single roof.
Is it any wonder that Labour MPs and ministers are going astray? They look at what Tony Blair and the Mandelsleaze have got away with and they decide that they're equally entitled to benefit from corruption.
The prime monster will argue before an NHS Tribunal that his severe "Revolving Head Syndrome" is caused by demonic possession as a direct result of the stresses of a job which he is not able to do, and that as he was forced into the job by public acclaim, the taxpayer should compensate him.

Unintended consequences or they just don't give a damn?
There's a Barbeque Summer forecast for this year and, before you go dashing out to buy another umbrella, the prediction ISN'T from the discredited Met Office computer. Positive Weather Solutions, which got last year's wet summer right, is the source of this good news for vendors of ice cream and sun-tan lotion and bad news for anyone liable to die of heat-stroke.
He was the Socialist Labour leader who produce the worst ever election manifesto by trying to sell Big Government, high taxation and trade union power to a people who had voted in Margaret Thatcher at the previous general election. As someone who didn't get involved in World War Two, he was famous for turning up at the Cenotaph on Remembrance Day in a donkey jacket to celebrate his working class roots. Ironically, he was responsible for inducting Tony Blair into the House of Commons Blair being the man who got the Socialism out of the Labour party and, as a values-free New Labour leader, steered the country into an illegal war in Iraq and economic ruination at the hands of Gordon Brown.
Saddled with a name recognized around the world, he tried to follow in his grandfather's footsteps as a war correspondent and then as a Conservative MP, and took a licking from the comparisons. He was a competent MP but he made no great speeches in the Commons and he was never on-message enough to hold a ministerial office in a Tory government. He was a bit full of himself at times and he had to struggle to live in the manner expected of a Churchill. He succeeded in upsetting a lot of the worst sort of people by blagging £12.5 million of National Lottery money for a deal to keep his grandfather's archive of documents in Britain, and he was also good at upsetting the grandees of the Tory party by supporting the wrong sort of causes.
His career in films and TV series lasted the best part of 60 years but he will be remembered as Agent Jim Phelps of Mission Impossible (1967-1973), who took his mission briefings from self-destructing tapes. He then selected a team of usual suspects, which usually included the man who was Mr. Spock, for a daring mission behind Communist or other totalitarian lines, and the mission usually ended with a dash for the border after the bad guys had been bamboozled thoroughly with amazing gadgetry and the application of almost superhuman talents by individual team members.
It used to be a drama series about crime-fighting in London but it degenerated into a routine soap with its main focus on the screwed-up lives of the coppers. Criminals became almost incidental.
He was a big hit in the 1960s TV show I Spy (1965-68) as the tennis-playing spy with another spy (Bill Cosby) pretending to be his manager. He played serious roles as well as comedy parts, but not with the same success, and his 50-year career included films like the wife-swapping comedy Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969) and parts in Broadway shows before he began working in television. He was a regular in many TV series, including Columbo & The New Adventures of Superman, and when not working, he supported the American civil rights movement and married 5 times.
Why is Stockport's Council Tax going up by 3.6% during a recession? That's double the going rate of 1.8%. Well, in the good old days, being a councillor was about public service and giving one's time to one's local community. But these days, most of our local Trivial Democrats are paying themselves £16,000 a year in allowances that's £200,000 not available to be spent on something worthwhile not counting expenses and throwing OUR money around on trivialities like a drunken Gordon Brown. So it's no bloody wonder we are up there with the highest rates of C-Tax in the country.
Things are getting so rough politically in our area that even our supposedly nice MP, Mr. Stunell, has been caught in the act of spreading lies about the Tories.
Despite theGuardian's hypocritical and politically motivated hysteria over Lord Ashcroft, a survey of right-thinking Britons has found that they agree that no sane person, given the opportunity, would leave their money at the mercy of Gordon Brown, the man who has squandered over ONE TRILLION POUNDS of the nation's wealth over the last 13 years that's £50,000 for each head of population.
Commons justice and let-offs for all

Idle and/or useless
Prof. P. Jones, the disgraced head of the Climate Research Unit at East Anglia University (the emails bloke), would have us believe that is it not standard practice to release data and computer models so that other scientists can check the results and methods of a research project to find out if they stand up to scrutiny.
The Swindlers changer their tune

So much for Sunny Spain!
Global Warming really IS all about the money
Justice Minister J. Straw has created another bogus 'uman right for convicts. If they miss out on a scheme which lets prisoners out of gaol 18 days early, they qualify for being let out 4½ months early as long as they agree to wear a tag and vote Labour in the general election.
Do It Yourself the best strategy for meeting targets
No discrimination allowed
The latest phone scam . . .
Bang to rights
The voters know that, come the general election, they will be swapping one bunch of useless wreckers for another. But what they are not yet sure about is that the Cameron Crowd will be as useless as Brown's Bunglers.
That's the only logical explanation for our bullying prime monster and his boot polish-eyebrowed chancellor choosing to fly the kite of putting an extra £8 tax on a bottle of whisky in the Budget.
Not always the obvious explanation
And now for some Good News! MPs are getting a pay rise of £1,000 per year.
Just as a precaution . . .
Another Brilliant Government Initiative
No danger of anything original
The Independent, the newspaper no one wants to buy, has been sold off for a quid to KGB agent, who's in charge of government propaganda sheets in Russia.
The Three Chancellors Debate; a correspondent writes:
We are now being invited to feel sorry for Tony Blair because he is being tortured by his conscience over getting hundreds of thousands of people killed by starting an illegal war in Iraq and he was bullied by the Brown monster.
Labour infiltraitors in the Charities Commission are working to close down all anti-bullying charities to give Gordon Brown's victims nowhere to turn to, and to prevent future embarrassment.
It's the way they tell them
How to have it all ways
The New Labour way of being honest and transparent
When a government minister boasts that 90% of the trains are running on time, remember that short-distance trains can be 5 minutes late and still be classed as "on time" and long-distance trains can be up to 10 minutes late.
Gordon Brown goes there, smirking, and lies his head off shamelessly about his part in the illegal Iraq war, and cutting the military budget and getting British soldiers killed. Then Chilcot thanks him and Brown strolls out, still grinning.
Chilcot Committee clears Saddam
American cults are losing their pulling power
Weapons of Mass Lachrymation
Diabolical, or what!
Moslem extremists have infiltrated the Labour party in London the way Militant Tendency did it in Liverpool in the 1980s. The only problem is that New Labour is such a ragbag of extremists of one sort or another (class, veggie, Global Warming Swindlers, etc.) that the Moslems will blend right in and be invisible to those hoping to extract them.
