Hangover question: The last issue ever last month? No! Not by a long chalk.
The UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom has been quoted as talking about "bongo-bongo land" in the context of Britain's overseas aid. What he actually said was "bunga-bunga land", where every government minister and state employee is expected to take a bung from the British taxpayer's enforced generosity as of right.

Poisoned well of public trust = making people even more sceptical and less likely to believe, and go along with, political lies, the delusions of governments and Dave the Leader's attempt to cling to Pres. O'Bummer's coat tails as he machos off for war in Syria.

Are we worried that Britain has been replaced in the affections of the USA by the perfidious French? Are we worried that we won't be obliged to share the blame when the Yanks and the Frogs start blasting bits of Syria to Hell? Are we sorry that Disaster-prone Dave went from shambles to defeat in the Commons, with lots of help from the perfidious E. Milibandit? "No!" to all of the above coupled with relief that we didn't get lumbered with another foreign war. [For the moment. Ed.]
Quotation of the month
"Intervening in Syria is as sensible as poking a finger into a box of scorpions."
Bredbury recycling centre finds a new way to get rid of waste
Romiley's air quality had to be monitored closely for pollution from the nearby major fire, which began on the third Tuesday of the month and was expected to burn for at least a week. An area the size of Romiley Rec, packed with inflammable materials like paper and plastic, went up in flames during the night.
The smoke gave the Highways Agency an excuse to close the M60, at the usual great inconvenience to motorists. The council was quick to issue a warning that bin collections would be delayed or cancelled as a result of the closure of the recycling centre, turning Romiley into a fire hazard due to full blue bins and dry weather.
Romiley has an unfortunate history of being polluted by Bredbury: see an earlier issue of BFN.
Real Tories strike back
It's not just Eddie-baby Milipede who's unpopular. A poll this month found that 13% of committed Tory voters have decided to withhold their vote at the next election if the party fails to listen to the Ditch Dave campaign and elect a leader who is a proper Conservative with proper Conservative values. [Or even some values? Ed.]
If E. Milibandit is keeping quiet because he has nothing to say, that suggests he does have one admirable, and unusual, quality for a politician.
World War I the REAL facts
In order to avoid upsetting our German allies in the EU during the events to commemorate the sacrifices and sheer awfulness of World War I, BFN will be pushing over the next 5 years, the official EU line that it was started by aliens disguised as Germans, and it was these aliens who were fought to an armistice in November 1918.
Unite in North Korea!
The dinosaur-led trade unions Unite + the teaching unions want schoolkids to have lessons in how to strike and how to disrupt the running of an organization like . . . a school. They also want kids to be taught how to harass local businesses with bogus protests. Next on the agenda, no doubt, will be "spontaneous" outbreaks in the classroom of hymns praising the Glorious Leader.
Not me, Gov!
The Russians suddenly decided that it would be a good idea for the UN weapons inspectors to investigate the alleged mass murder by sarin inflicted on the anti-Assad faction in Syria. Does this mean the weapons used were Chinese and the Putinocracy was hoping to score some clean-hands point? Probably.
"Data mule D. Miranda should quit whining and count himself lucky not to be parked at Guantanamo Bay as an enemy agent."
Not me, Gov! Part II or "More Conspiracy Theory"
The nerve gas used by the Assad regime on its opponents was Russian but the evidence will have gone by the time any UN weapons inspectors are allowed to visit the atrocity site, and that's why the Putinocracy isn't stopping them.
E. Milibandit's approval rating is so low that it wouldn't be visible even if he were triplets.
Dave the Leader and Pres. O'Bummer are hell-bent on starting a new war in the Middle East. They will open the new front in Syria with a bombardment of cruise missiles.
Hang on a minute, Dave!
MPs from all parties are demanding a recall of Parliament and a chance to vote before Dave and Billy Hague start firing off cruise missiles at Syria.
Pres. O'Bummer is seeking to play the good cop role over Syria, but the only way Dave the Leader is seen as a bad cop involved "bad" in the sense of useless rather than dangerously ruthless.
Where is Tony B. Liar, the official Middle East peace envoy, whilst all this is going on? Taking a tour of luxury yachts in the Med. So much for his boasts of "toiling for peace".
You can tell it's the Silly Season!
What else could it be when one of the newspapers comes up with a story about rogue SAS agents being responsible for killing Princess Diana? [And didn't the Daily Disaster enjoy the excuse to fill up the paper with even more pictures of her? Ed.] Apparently, Scotland Yard is "scoping" the information, which makes the spokestwit who came out with that notion sound like a very dated (1990s) PR lackey.
Moron the Silly Season
Prince Charles has parked a network of moles throughout the civil service and he now has absolute control of all government departments, including the cabinet office. When questioned about the network, his official spokesperson is believed to have responded: "If we had [done it], do you think we've be daft enough to admit it?"
According to the Liberal party pensions minister, God is a Liberal. Which certainly explains a lot, when you think about it.
Corruption scandal engulfs Spanish Government
This is the background to the Spanish government's assault on Gibraltar:
A huge corruption scandal is ongoing in Spain involving the Partido Popular, several Ministers and the current Prime Minister, Mariano Rajoy.
It involves accusations of bribery, money laundering, tax evasion, awarding public contracts without following the proper legal procedures, giving envelopes with money to prominent party members (possibly illegal commissions paid in exchange for public contracts), operating an undeclared Swiss bank account containing €22 million, and secret hand-written copies of the party's illegal accountancy records, which name leading members of the party, including the prime minister.
The People’s Party is denying everything and the prime minister has nothing to say for himself. Some of those named, however, have admitted that information in the accounts concerning them is true.
The People’s Party created a “tax amnesty” for those who had failed to declare large amounts of money. The former treasurer of the party, Luis Bárcenas, had admitting using this amnesty on €11 million, and it has been suggested that the amnesty was created especially for the benefit of people like him.
The People’s Party has been cutting social welfare in Spain, reducing unemployment benefits, closing medical centres, cutting public services and allowing quick and cheap layoffs of labour. It is therefore in desperate need of a Foreign Adventure, like the ill-fated assault on the Falkland Islands launched by Spain's ally, Argentina, in 1982.
The Greeks are demanding a 3rd bailout; just a modest £8.6 BILLION; but there can be no further austerity measures attached to it.
Answers to the usual address by the end of the month, please.
If you don't know what evil is . . .
Google is the subject of a class action brought in San José, California, to prevent the world's biggest spy organization from reading emails and using the content to target adverts. Google claims that it has a right to read any mail it delivers. Its gmail customers liken the data burglary to a postman assuming he has the right to open and read all the mail he delivers.
More spin and derision
And "innocent" Brazilian bloke was hauled off an airliner and brutally questioned by secret police, without a solicitor, for 9 hours. Surprise! He turned out to be the boyfriend of an anti-American American working for theGrauniad, he was acting as a data mule and carrying copies of stolen US secrets [rather like the 2 British women held in Peru as coke mules except he's not claiming anyone held a gun to his head] and the solicitor he asked for took 8 hours to reach the airport.
The computer hard disk drives smashed at theGrauniad's offices all held parts of the same bundle of stolen data and they were on a network open to hacking by Russian, Chinese and other enemy agents, but surprise! there have been no dawn arrests of staff working for theGrauniad.
theGrauniad is playing the victim card in all directions whilst suppressing inconvenient parts of the truth like any common criminal caught in the act and wriggling on a hook.
Just what is a sacking offence, then?
A copper was fired for skiving off duty for a spot of rumpy-pumpy with someone else's wife. But he has been reinstated. Why? Because he's a firearms officer and whilst his trousers were around his ankles, the appeal panel ruled that his gun was still within reach and available for use if anyone needed shooting by an hysterical copper.
Talk big, drown in detail
The Archbish of Cantab is planning to put Wonga.com out of business with his own payday loan firm, which will offer affordable interest rates. But it won't be ready to go for another 10 years, so Wonga is hardly trembling in its collective boots.
Enough people can stop anything!
West Sussex police have set an interesting precedent by refusing to protect the company which is doing a test-drilling for oil in Balcombe because an anti-fracking mob threatened to hold a riot there and the police decided they couldn't afford to get involved.
So if enough people threaten to cause trouble somewhere, they can stop more or less anything happening. Like work on the H2S train line getting started, like preventing by-elections from being held, like preventing secret courts from sitting or even Parliament. We face an interesting future and, perhaps, total paralysis because there are always lots of people opposed to everything.
|Have they no shame? Apparently not|
In her will, the late Joan Edwards left her estate to the government of the day to be spent as it may think fit. Instead of using the £520,000 to pay off a bit of the national debt, or something else of use to the poor old taxpayer, Dishonest Dave & Calamity Clegg chose to trouser the cash as donations to their respective parties. As Labour is no more honest, we are now left wondering how many other "bequests to the nation" have been effectively stolen by morally bankrupt politicians.
Don't start cheering yet
The workforce has reached a record 30 million. Good news? Well, not really as a million of them are people who would have been retired and living on a pension if Gordon Brown and New Labour hadn't stolen it from them.
More misconduct in office?
Some genius at the Can't Prosecute Service has decided not to prosecute the copper who tasered a blind man in Chorley last October. The copper was ruled to have taken "appropriate action" and he doesn't even have to get his eyes tested. [Or his head examined for signs of morbid hysteria. Ed.]
The campaign by Labour, the Tories and theGrauniad to sleaze UKIP MEPs and candidates seems to be going in an unplanned direction. Fairly innocent remarks made by the targets are reaching a wider audience and, stripped of the sleazers' spin, they can be seen to be eminently sensible. Why, for instance, are we letting Pakistan buy fighter aircraft with money borrowed by the British government (and added to our national debt) when we can't afford to buy the same aircraft for the RAF?
Too obvious for the govt. to get?
The Home Sec. is in trouble for hiding parts of a report on our non-existent border security; mainly in connection with bogus asylum seekers sneaking into Britain on Eurostar trains. But the solution to this problem is simple. Asylum seekers are supposed to claim asylum in the first safe country they reach. So if they choose not to do it in France or Belgium, they're obviously not entitled to apply for asylum in Britain and they can be chucked out forthwith. Or they could be, if the Coalition had any backbone.
Don't mention the aid!
Dave the Leader proved how out of touch with reality he is when he joined the chorus of usual suspects and aid vultures, which is trying to gag MEP G. Bloom, who is offering good sense on the aid shambles. Meanwhile, Dave is so worried that his own ministers will have an attack of honesty when asked about the fraud and theft associated with overseas aid that he has banned them from talking about it.

Models of veracity not!
Remember those police and crime commissioners, who were wished on us? Two of them are in trouble for lying about where they live. The commissioner for North Wales really lives 175 miles away, in Cardiff, and the commissioner for Hampshire actually lives 115 miles away in Northamptonshire. So two of the characters charged with hiring and firing chief constables and acting the part of the old borough police authority don't think the people paying their wages deserve the truth.
Equal opportunity policing
If they arrest the police commissioners who lied about where they live, are the police going to have to do the same for all the parliamentary candidates who were parachuted into a constituency and falsely claimed to live there? It sounds right up the street of the modern, post-New-Labour police "service", which no longer concerns itself with real crime.
Reds in the bushes!
MI5 has a new BIG job on its hands sorting the enemy agents from the stooges and dilettantes in the ranks of the "ecowarriors" who are trying to prevent Britain from using its shale gas deposits. The big problem is screening out the sheer numbers of what V.I. Lenin called "useful idiots" in circulation. Many of these people bought the failing Great Global Warming Scam and they are now seeking alternative scaremongering opportunities as an alternative to working for a living. A significant number of others are offspring of "celebs", who are seeking attention through notoriety as they lack the talent to raise their own big bucks and become celebs in their own right.
Reds in the bushes and everywhere else!
A ragbag army of usual suspects from all over the picked the Balcombe, Sussex, drilling site for a boozy festival with violence disguised as an anti-fracking protest ignoring the fact that the drilling here was for oil, not down to the shale deposits, and the company concerned had already decided that it could do better elsewhere.
The Food Standards Agency has delivered a kick to the goolies of the 'Elf 'n' Narzi brigade by telling them that home-made cakes CAN be sold at school fetes and other community events because they are NOT covered by EU laws on food hygiene.

Bonuses were NOT affected
Just what counts as misconduct in office? The bosses of the quango Creative Scotland (legitimate expenditure £3,800/month) turned a blind eye to illegal charges to their official credit cards amounting to £13,000/month. And when their auditor pointed out that £104,000 had been stolen via fraudulent transactions between December 2010 and July 2011, the quangocrat bosses refused to report the fraud to the police.

Further annoying phone calls on the way
The Next Big Thing after compensation for mis-sold PPI insurance will be compensation for illegal parking charges made by local councils. The councils in England suffered a setback last month when a judge ruled that under the Road Traffic Regulation Act (1984), it is illegal for councils to use profits from parking schemes for any other purpose. The resident who brought the case received a refund of the illegal fees charged and ambulance-chasers in the legal trade are now preparing to bombard the nation with pre-recorded phone calls, texts and spam emails offering their services in the cause of compensation.
93% of the councils in England face being hauled into court by swindled motorists unless they make speedy reparations.
Another £53 MILLION wasted
That's how much it will cost to sack a company, which was awarded a contract to provide NHS services at a hospital in Stevenage. Patients died, Clinicenta lost the records of other patients, and the company generally provided a rotten "service". Local GPs stopped referring patients to them but, thanks to New Labour, the firm is guaranteed its reward for failure and a huge buy-out fee for the contract. Thanks, Ed, Gordon & Ed.
They're all at it
M&S faces an unscheduled drop in profits as a result of bamboozling its customers into making M&S their energy suppliers. In-store sales staff mugged grannies (and others) with New Labour-style dodgy dossiers, which promised huge savings. Ambulance-chasing lawyers are now gearing up to bombard the nation with phone calls offering to get them compensation.
It was just Luvvie Loot
Surprise! The Arts seem to be flourishing despite reductions in public funding because New Labour spent us into bankruptcy. Which kind of suggests that real artists will carry on when the quangocrats and talentless hangers-on turn elsewhere in search of a free lunch.

A fortune in tax but still no highway
If you have to drive to the parts of Yorkshire which suffered flash floods at the end of last month, don't expect to complete your journey. Roads already full of potholes have been ripped to pieces by surging torrents, making them completely unnavigable. The councils concerned have no plans to do any repairs until they have rattled their begging bowls under the combined noses of the Coalition instead of cutting back on perks for staff and councillors.
Another scam in operation
Councils in Scotland have come up with a new way to persecute motorists. They spray potholes with yellow paint and refuse to pay compensation to the owners of vehicles damaged by them on the entirely spurious ground that the repair "is in the system", even if there is no immediate prospect of any repair work being performed. Motorists are expected to take the time and trouble to sue the council for damages.
Another scam coming?
The Spanish government is planning to harass people travelling to and from Gibraltar by charging them €50 per border crossing.

Comet ISON was billed as an Event of the Century during the period November 2013 to January 2014. When it was first spotted, experts began to predict that it would be 15 times brighter than the moon, have a massive tail and be visible in daylight. But the tune is starting to change. The comet has not shown any brightening in the last 6 months and the experts don't know quite what to make of that, but they are now leaning toward as big a non-event as Comet Halley's last pass.
Comet ISON's orbit has such a low eccentricity that it will probably make just one trip through the solar system. From what is being said now, it might as well not have bothered.
