Another scare story; yawn
We are being told that rockets fired by North Korean boss Kim Jong-whoever ‘could' now hit London and New York. There are two things very wrong with this as a scare. Firstly, everyone knows there are light years between that ‘could' and ‘can'. And secondly, who the hell cares if a small missile lands on London or New York? It's not as if anyone valuable will be written off. Especially if Parliament is sitting at the time or the rioting community is having a night out.
“North Korea sez its latest missile test was a justified response to new threats of sanctions by the United States. Well, shooting off a few rocket at China's expense seems harmless enough.”
“We hear a lot about the threat of Korean missiles but nothing about the radar stations which the Americans have to detect them and the anti-missle missles available to take out incoming hardware, which suggests there is a hell of a lot of hype going on. And how many missles does Kim Jong-whoever have, anyway?”
AI? U Die!
Today's Daily Mail has an article about the differences of opinion of two internet billionaires; the Facebook** guy, who thinks robots will wipe out humans, and the PayPal and SpaceX guy, who thinks we have nothing to fear from Artificial Intelligences and the technology could be used to upgrade humans. After watching Hackney council workmen on TV, sweeping up after the latest riot by their local and neighbouring criminals, it is easy to believe that a spot of upgrading can be only a good thing.

Get off your fat cans!
Inactivity and over-consumption of processed foods are being blamed for an obesity crisis in Scotland. According to today's Sunday Post, ambulances designed to carry people weighing up to 70 stone are proving inadequate for some NHS customers, who need the fire brigade to move them.
Clearly, the Scottish government is not helping by allowing people to lounge around instead of having to get active by working for a living. And as for their claims of Tory austerity, there can't be a shortage of cash if people have enough money to gorge themselves on cakes and biscuits and ready meals.
Maybe a little real austerity would rekindle an enthusiasm for going out shopping to buy real food and getting a bit more exercise in the kitchen from preparing and cooking it.

Should we feel threatened by the prospect of chlorine-washed chicken arriving from the USA after Brexit? Not if the chlorine is washed off again, rather than being left on the carcase as a sort of halogen marinade. And the customer cooks the chicken properly.
Silly fashion kills
The fad for wearing jeans with ripped knees is costing lives in Turkey, the world's biggest source of destroyed jeans. 41 people are known to have died of silicosis from the ablation process, and over 1,000 others are known to have the lung disease in various stages.

If you buy anything containing chocolate made by a major manufacturer, you will be swindled. The size of packs and the weight of contents in lots of them has shrunk over the last 5 years and yet retail prices have risen. The manufacturers blame things like rises in the prices of cocoa and sugar; which have fallen in price over the last 5 years. The next excuse is that they are profiteering in the name of combatting o'besity and improving health and we're being ripped off for our own good. Yeah, right.

How to win elections in the 21st century
Encourage students to register to vote where their parents live and where they study. Offer them something quite undeliverable (straight face essential) with anti-social meeja campaigns and encourage them to vote twice to get it (even if this is illegal).

Government embarrasses BBC Big Time
Despite Brexit, the Corbyn Broadcasting Corporation has been obliged to publish details of how much staff paid more than the prime minister (£150K) are collecting. 150 grand for reading a bit of news on TV is ludicrous but 300 grand for getting up a half-past stupid o'clock to do knocking jobs on Tory politicians on Radio 4 is unbelievable. As is the cash the Beeb pays its big nobs.
If the embarrassment inflicted is pay-back for a consistent anti-Conservative party line at the Beeb, the nation waits in eager anticipation for the next slice. Because the Beeb has a whole lot more suffering to undergo before its hubris account ceases to be phenomenally overdrawn.
Suggested EU separation terms
1. The EU will pay the UK £263,000 million pounds to buy out Britain's share in the EU's assets.
2. No border between the UK and Ireland, and no Irish citizens to be allowed to enter the UK.
3. Everyone living in Britain will be subject to British law enforced in British courts and foreign courts will have no jurisdiction.
Snakes in the grass
Let's face it, snake oil does sell. How else do we explain Tony B. Liar or Jezzer 'no tuition fees' Corbyn?

Nice to see Chris Froome annoying the French by winning their national bike race again. If he can manage a legitimate Armstrong on them, they should really bend them out of shape.
Another of these bogus surveys claims that the average Briton breaks the law 32 times per year. No surprise that it turns out to be just a publicity puff for a programme on a TV channel that most of us have never heard of.
Education Sec. (although, you wouldn't know it from the amount of time she spends poking her nose into other people's business) J.

It looks like we won't have to worry about a huge trade deficit with Germany, post-Brexit, as far as the motor vehicle industry is concerned. Audi, BMW, Daimler, Porsche and Volkswagen all face fines in the multiples of billions for price-fixing and emissions fraud, which could drive them into extinction.
But there is a good news possibility. If the Germans feel like relocating for a fresh start under a new name, and out of the clutches of the EU, the obvious place to move to is here in Britain.

D*U*N*K K*I*R*K, the story of a miracle
"Sir, we have to go to Dunk Kirk to save Englandland's army from the Narzis."
"Great, I always wanted to visit Englandland, especially Londontown."
"No, sir, Dunk Kirk is in Franceland."
"Isn't that a tad confusing?"
"Yes, sir, but that's Yurp for you."
"Okay, let's haul ass to . . . where?"
"Okay, move out, Englandland asses are on the line. They need their Uncle Sam again."
The way forward
Swedish boffins have decided that the best way to save the planet from the menace of global warming would be to make sure that people don't have children; especially ones they can't afford to support; as children have an ENORMOUS carbon footprint.
A welcome sign of progress
A chunk of ice ‘the size of Belgium' was spotted in the act of breaking away from an ice shelf on the coast of Antarctica this month. Wonder of wonders, the fraudsters have not been allowed to blame it on man-made global warming; not even the ones at the BBC!!; as there is abundant evidence that ice does flow from accumulations on mountains down to the sea and big bits of glaciers do break off from time to time.
Of course, there have been rumblings about the berg raising sea levels when it melts, but just how much difference is one large iceberg going to make when distributed throughout the 71% of the planet which is covered by oceans?
One minute, we're being told that Britain is getting warmer and gardeners are going to have to do a complete rethink about what they grow. The next, we're being told that butterfly species are dying out because it's too cold. Good job George Orwell came up with the concept of doublethink. We'd be lost without it.
One thing that's surprising is that the global warming fraudsters aren't jumping up and down and pointing to the wildfires in Portugal, France, Italy and the Balkans, and claiming that the same is going to happen here in a few years. Is their scam running out of steam a bit?
A fair question
Something we'd dearly love to know is how all the people with electric cars are going to charge them up if the wind isn't blowing and the sun isn't shining? Points will be deducted for arrant political BS.

Diane: "How much does a ton weight, Jeremy?"
If it would be reasonable to have a second referendum on Brexit because some people might have changed their minds, it would be equally reasonable to rerun the last general election to find out if the young people who voted Labour on the promise of having university fees cancelled have changed their minds now that Mr. Corbyn's pledge has been reduced to just a vague ambition.
People are making much of the obvious lies spouted by the Labour party over student fees to buy votes. Which has to be a case for raising the voting age to a level at which people know that a politician with his/her mouth open is lying.

Vlad the Putin wishes it to be known that his KBG agents were extremely careful and there is no evidence of Russian interference in the last US presidential election because Putin's agents did a wonderful job of covering their tracks.
Business as usual
In a sensible world, there would be something comical about Saudi Arabia, a major sponsor of global Islamic terrorism, blockading Qatar for the same offence. But in the present state of the world, the gesture fails to rise above pathetic hypocrisy.
We keep hearing that Tory plotters against the PM are putting the country at risk of falling into the clutches of the Corbynista zombies. Maybe it's time to take a leaf out of the current Labour party operations manual and let the traitors in the Tory ranks know that de-selection looms if they don't stop larking about.
A new philosophy for the mature citizen?
In the new era of Corbyn Political Reality, let us pile more debt on to the Buttercups if they want to slay the imaginary dragon of austerity. Let us give a 10% rise to everyone in the public sector and pensioners, double the Winter Fuel Allowance, and put an end to VAT, National Insurance and means-testing. And let us endeavour to spend up and be dead and gone, or out of the country, before the Buttercups get the bill and come looking for a bail-out.
Bollocks of the month:
1. The assertion by TUC figurehead F.O'Grady that the state pension age is going to be higher than healthy life expectancy in large parts of the country.
2. Yes, a Time Lord can make himself look like a woman but no, that doesn't make him female.

“Shock of the first week of the month: learning that Labour has a shadow fire minister, who is presumably on a fancy salary top-up. Are we really expected to believe that the government has a Secretary of State for Arson Affairs, which Labour feels obliged to shadow?”
Badly Confected Balderdash
“Jez Corbyn would like us to believe that the Tories have presided over a lost decade. A more accurate description would be a decade spent trying to put the toothpaste back into the tube after Gordon 'Effin Broon (Labour, but certainly not a labour of love) squeezed it out.”
Same thing only different
Young things born in the late 1980s and early 1990s are objecting to being called Millennials; mainly because a lot of them are unable to grasp the concept of a millennium, according to surveys. So is it back to Buttercups? As in "suck it up, Buttercup"? Or would they rather be Snowflakes?
Vince Cable, the Liberal party's leader-in-waiting and resident Old Father Time, has announced that his party will offer a second referendum on Brexit. How? He's never going to be prime minister of a Liberal government. So, just hot air, then?
More inconvenient facts
According to the World Bank, the store of wealth here in Britain is shared more evenly than in most of the rest of the West. Does this mean that the Labour gloomsters who have been telling us that we live in the world's most divided society were lying to us? Surely not!
Tell 'em anything!
Vince Cable is running for leadership of the Liberals (with no opposition) on an ‘Exit from Brexit' ticket. Okay, he'll never be able to deliver it, and there are no EU treaty provisions which allow invoking Article 50 Lisbon to be cancelled or revoked, but we are talking about the La-La Land Liberals. And his platform does tell everyone who out of touch with reality he is.
“If Vince Cable is going to make promises he knows his ass can't cash, why is he being such a cheapskate? Why hasn't he gone the full Corbyn and promised to do something like abolishing income tax and giving everyone a free fortnight at his villa in Greece? Why is he not thinking big; is it due to some deep-seated personality defect? After all, he's never going to be prime minister but there are people with voting privileges who take his daft ideas seriously and will vote for him because they want to pretend that the impossible can happen.”
What do you do if you're a prime minister who has been evicted from office for corruption? Give the job to your brother. That's how it works in Pakistan.

A mystery solved!
Gordon Effin' Brown wishes it to be known that he, personally, did not try to do a deal with the DUP in 2010 after the electorate rejected him. Which means the negotiations were done by his staff instead of the glowering Broon in the interests of not starting a punch-up; which amounts to the same thing in the end.

How good is the Metropolitan police farce at conducting investigations? In June 2016, a PC was placed on restricted duties after another PC accused him of stealing biscuits from an open box on the victim's desk. The case was referred to the Met's Directorate of Professional Standards, the rubber-heeled anti-corruption mob. Over one year later, this gang of heroes still hasn't finished its ‘investigation'. No wonder seriously bent coppers are never brought to book.
Usual suspects at it again
Not much sign of austerity in Hamburg if thousands of masked rioters feel they can afford to take a day off work (assuming they do any) to go and beat up German cops at the G20 freebie. Possibly because they're hoping to get in a spot of arson and looting after dark to make the trip worthwhile.
The looney left would like us to believe that five or six hundred people were in Grenfell Tower on the night of the fire. Why? Because if around 250 people got out of the building, according to police figures, that gives the lunatics a fantasy death toll of 250-350 as an excuse for a riot.
Increase or catch-up?
The news that reported crime went up by 10% in the year to March 2017 is a source of bafflement rather than alarm. After all, there is no point in panicking until we know whether the rise was due to increased productivity by the nation's criminals or the police actually taking the trouble to record crimes instead of ignoring them; for which they have a proven track record.
Israel's security forces have found an interesting new source of income. They raid the homes of Palestinians suspects and stroll off with any cash they find as ‘money used for terror'.
Meanwhile, in Indonesia, there is a ‘shoot to kill' policy for drug dealers, especially for foreigners, because the country is officially in a ‘narcotics emergency position'. One does tend to feel that there should be an ‘ongoing' and an ‘at this moment in time' somewhere in that tortured example of crap management-speak!
Justice made easy
The government has the power to check the current fashion for attacks with acid, bleach and other corrosive chemicals. It just has to raise the minimum sentence for assault by chemical to 10 years in gaol and sideline any judges who refuse to apply the law for political reasons.
Scotland's failed police experiment
The last Sunday Post of the month contained a rather grim article about the state of policing in Scotland. Reducing the original regional police forces to one vast Police Scotland seems to have created a huge, bureaucratic monster with its focus on itself and having little regard for the people who pay for it and the people whom it is supposed to serve and protect. Sounds rather like the EU, come to think of it.
Happy Canada Day, Everyone!
It's official! As from the first of this month, everyone in Canada is now 150 years old. Which mean that all Canadians now qualify for a state pension, a free bus pass and the Winter Fuel Allowance. What that is going to do to Chancellor Misery-Guts Phil's next budget is anybody's guess.

Someone has to do the grown-up government and the lesson from history is that it's always the Conservatives who get stuck with this task because Labour's Gordon Brown of the Month is forever trying to climb a Magic Money Beanstalk to get to the pie in the sky.
Unfortunately, all that anybody ever learns from history is that nobody remembers the blunders of the past when faced with a repetition of the circumstances which produced them.

“I'm definitely voting Labour at the next election if it means that everyone who doesn't feel like working will be supported by those suckers who feel they have to.”
They just don't want to learn
Banks were lending money to people with no hope of repaying it (helped by the criminally reckless policies of the US government) before the Broon Crunch in 2008. Banks are lending money to people who won't be able to repay if they get into a bit of financial trouble, or the rates go up, right now. And they're still amazed that their debtors keep on defaulting. This is the lesson from history: it's irrelevant because everyone expects things to work out differently every time an old crisis comes around again.
They're going to have to come up with another swindle
Fees for paying by credit card, typically 1-3%, will be banned from Jan 2018 in compliance with an EU Payment Services directive. Costs are never more than 0.6% of the amount processed, so companies charging more are ripping off their customers.
Popsie Pay Palaver @ BBC.
They don't get it
What we don't need is females at the BBC paid the same as males. What we really need is males paid at the current female rates. Especially as some woman was moaning about being paid just £60K for reading the news on the telly and claiming that most people she knows in the real world are absolutely astonished at how little she earns. That ‘just' certainly does not belong there. Just ask anyone in the real ‘real world'. And the astonishment is purely for how much she is paid (rather than earns) for the old rope.
“The real issue at the BBC is not that the women are underpaid. Rather, it's that a lot of women are overpaid for what they do and a lot of men are grossly overpaid for what they do. The solution? Pay cuts to get all wages down to reasonable levels, as agreed by a panel of licence payers, and a reduction in the TV licence, of course.”

Cable a student of Nazi tactics?
The saintly Vince Cable has accused the prime minister of using a phrase which could have been taken from Mein Kampf. Which is the sort of political smear tactic employed by the noted Nazi Minister for Propaganda and Popular Enlightenment Dr. Joseph Goebbels.
Has Vince no shame, using Nazi tactics to accuse someone of being a Nazi? Evidently not.
Sir M. Moore-Bick has been given to understand that many of the former residents of Grenfell Tower have no respect for his ability to do a competent job of conducting the fire inquiry. But as none of them knows anything much about him, or has any track record of being able to make personnel choices at this level, their opinions would seem to be based on mere worthless prejudice and propaganda fed to them by vested interests.
“The retired judge who is doing the Grenfell Tower fire inquiry has been warned that he will have to get used to being yelled at. Seeking information in a calm and collected manner is off the table when the scum rises to the surface and the usual suspects apply their rules: namely that the person making the most noise, no matter how incoherent, wins the argument.”
Judges are not social workers. It's not their function to hold hands and say, 'Diddums'. Their job is to examine evidence, gather facts and apply the law, and taking notice of mobs of agitators, or tweets from uninformed politicians, plays no part in that job. Not that you can tell any of this to the Labour party and their agitators, who want to see a Tory conspiracy around every corner.
Telling it like it isn't
"Austerity Kills" squawked the banners at the million moron march at the first weekend of the month, ignoring a couple of small facts. No. 1: how would the morons know because we haven't had any austerity if Britain's public debt grew from 76% of GNP in 2010 to 89% in 2016.
No. 2: it never touches the people who made it necessary, like Wee Gordon Broon, his mates in the banking industry and the rest of the fiscal looneys.
It's all very well, being weary of (non-existent) austerity, but if you're still spending more than your income, there's no responsible alternative. And no, Jeremy Corbyn's Magic Money Beanstalk isn't a responsible alternative.
Reality is SO inconvenient
The Office of Manpower Economics [Nope, I'd never heard of it before either. Ed.] reckons that real pay in the public sector fell by 3.1% between 2005 and 2015. The fall in the wealth-creating private sector was 6.1% and, thanks to Gordon Brown's tax and waste, pensions are few and far between in the private sector, unlike the public sector. Which means that increasing taxes on the wealth-creators to benefit the public sector just increases unfairness. Not a concept which troubles the Labour party and the public-sector trade unions, though.
Dodgy is as dodgy does
We're hearing a lot about car salespersons giving loans to people without a job, who are likely to run into financial trouble and end up with a massive, sub-prime-mortgage style debt, especially if interest rates go up. If they are heading for the state which the Labour party is keen to inflict on the country, it looks like there's an alternative career ready and waiting in the motor industry for J. Corbyn and his team of financial geniuses when they are eventually sacked.
“What is it about Germans that makes them think they have a divine right to drive into rivals and crash them out of a race? Who does Sagan think he is? A reincarnation of M. Schumacher? And what's drug-cheat Contador doing in the Tour de France? What a weird world we live in.”
What a difference a little evidence makes
New CCTV of the crash involving tennis star V. Williams shows that she did nothing illegal before a traffic accident, in which an elderly couple drove into her vehicle head-on and suffered fatal injuries. But she has money and the family of the deceased couple is demanding cash already.
One step sideways
France plans to ban new models of petrol and diesel cars ‘by 2040', but not continuing production of existing models. The increased weight of the electric motors and batteries will add 500 kg to the average vehicle. Having to shift all that extra weight will increase the power consumption. And there's the footprint of all the extra manufacturing to consider.
All in all, the move is expected to negate, or even reverse, any carbon dioxide savings. But we do live in an age of gestures rather than good sense.
London Underground is to stop calling its customers ladies and gentlemen as a favour to the Algebra Community (that untidy mess of letters), who don't always know which sex they are on any given day. The Tube's alternative misses a splendid opportunity to salute that archetypal Londoner Sidney Balmoral James, Mr. 'Ancock's sidekick, by getting the staff to call everyone ‘Mush' without fear or favour or discrimination.
Chancellor triggers national debate
Who was more upset by the Chancellor saying a modern train is so easy to drive that even a woman can do it? The women train drivers, who want everyone to think they're a really BIG deal? Or male train drivers, whose mates are laughing at them and saying they're doing a girly job?
“A spokesperson concerned with promoting wimmin's Interests at the expense of those of men commented: 'a modern, pussy-whipped [emasculated, Ed.] man would not have expressed himself this way'.”
The French did it a couple of weeks earlier. In the last week of the month, our government has decreed that only new electric cars can be sold from 2040 on in the name of reducing air pollution. Existing diesel and petrol cars will be allowed to run until either they croak or the owner can no longer pay licence-to-kill pollution charges. The Department of Transport is advising customers to do their best to hold their breath until 2040.
Owners of electric cars have to pay 50% more insurance than owners of internal combustion cars because of the high cost of repair/replacement of batteries and motors.
The government plan to reduce the speed limit on motorways to 60 mph to cut air pollution looks doomed to failure. congestion in the worst areas means that vehicles rarely reach 60 mph anyway.
You're not even trying, Vince!

The height of vanity
Town halls in France will have to waste €2.7 million on 36,000 new picture frames because the official photographic portrait of M. MacRon, the new president of the republic, is 2" taller than the nation's standard official presidential portrait frame.
“It has been pointed out that even if French jobsworths had the wit to snip a couple of inches off Hamish MacRon's official portrait, the cash not blown on new picture frames would definitely not be spent wisely. It would just be wasted on even more free lunches for burrocrats.”
“President MacRon claims he's big on value for money and cuts, but that clearly doesn't extend to saving his nation €2.7 million by cutting a couple of inches off his official portrait photos so that they fit existing frames. Or even not bothering with the photos in the first place to save even more money at the expense of a little presidential vanity.”
Migrants will inherit the Earth; for a while
‘Up to' 20% of men in the Western world are sub-fertile, according to the latest batch of experts. This is because they are stressed, polluted and two-thirds of them are overweight or obese. Thus as the native populations of the West go extinct, there will be plenty of room for migrants from the East, who will also become stressed, polluted and fat, and die out in their turn.
The world will end with the East empty of people because everyone has migrated to the West, and a few zombie-like former Easterners in the West on the path to oblivion.
