zombie humbugThere is still no F in Brexit thanks to the Westminster Wonders
—but Prime Monster Boris is doing his best to ram it up the humbuggers!
 
“The sanctimonious, humourless, preachy, victimhood peddling marionettes that fill our public space”—that’s telling ’em!

 WEEK 1 

 
Despite Austerity and Endemic Poverty, there are people around who will pay £275 per session to have their dog's head shrunk.

£151 MILLION of British taxpayers' money sent to pay for the space programs of China and India and used for their Moon probes? That Dopey Dave the ex-Leader has a lot to answer for.

Well, thanks a bunch for that!
It seems that Greenhouse Grater has been getting whinge therapy for her mental health ishoos. She has been curing her own depression by depressing everyone else with her tales of doom and gloom and gorbal warming, and her sense of impotent outrage.

O.J. Corbynski claims that 2020 was a good year for Labour—with some justification. After all, he dodged the bullet of winning last month's election and having to form a government which would have disappointed his Corbidiots by failing to deliver all the free stuff he promised them.

Far Queue symbol The BBC news would have us believe a new decade is starting today. But every January 1st is the start of a new decade if you can't grasp the concept that a calendar decade runs from 1 to 10.

Escaping the rabbit hole of darkness
The financial crisis precipitated in 2008 by G.F. Broon's fiscal recklessness has resulted in two-thirds of adults in the UK being debtors—thanks mainly to the current disincentive to save created by piss poor interest rates as a direct result of the Broon Catastrophe.

Bigot News
The author Charles Kingsley described Bideford in Devon as The Little White Town because of the colour of the buildings and the streets. Cue a racialist councillor trying last November to get rid of the nickname because he thought it had white supremacist overtones.
    Cue the racialist council minded to go along with the plan. Cue the racialist councillor withdrawing his motion to ban the nickname following an avalanche of derision from the entire nation. Cue nothing happening and a lot of time and local council taxpayers' cash wasted on . . . bugger all.

Same old same old same old
After their failure to get anywhere @ the Chilean (held in Madrid) gorbal warming jamboree last month, the fraudsters are moving their goal posts by a decade. Instead of 10 minutes to save The Planet, we now have 10 years and Prince William is their new fall guy.
    Bets are even now being laid as to who will be the woke figurehead when the whole sorry charade is replayed @ the start of 2030.

bullet Pope made to grovel & spout platitudes after being assaulted @ work by pushy woman.

Just what we need
One of the Labour leadership wannabes is promising to be the champion of progressive patriotism, whatever that is. She clearly doesn't realize that everyone else knows what starting a political or PR concept with 'pro' means in a looney left context.
[Hint: a swindle on the way. Ed.]

Now we know
The Liberals didn't win the last election because they grotted on Brexit and not because they are an unelectable joke of a political party.
p.s. That BS about revoking Article 50 and pretending Brexit was never launched, that would have applied only if they Liberals had won a majority to govern from the election. So it was complete pie-in-the-sky claptrap.

cross symbol The hottest winter day on record was recorded @ Kew Gardens last February. Cambridge University Botanical Gardens is claiming the record for the hottest ever any-season day during last July. Which is a lot of a giveaway if these records are being claimed in greenhouses!!

See a drain, pour cash down it
The carbon dioxide released and resources used up by the EbloodyU's travelling circus, which moves from Brussels to Strasbourg for a week every month to massage French egos, have been made exempt from the EbloodyU declaration of a climate emergency, which was made in December.
    The process includes driving a huge fleet of limos back and forward between the two cities for the local use of MEPs and officers who make the journey by air. Trying to cover up that short of extravagance tells us exactly how much that declaration is worth.

A chance to preachify!
Anyone who chooses to live in an area subject to wildfires, either natural or man-ignited, can expect to be in a lot of trouble if they fail to create an adequate system of fire-breaks around settlements. That's just plain obvious whether you live in Australia or California.
reader comment“Something else that's obvious is that the fires will be particularly bad after any long spell of drought in a climate prone to it. But blaming gorbal warming for everything is, of course, a way of tapping in to the prevailing victim culture plague.” L.M.

Plastic Peeple
The Xperts have guestimated that the average human consumes 2 wheeled bins-worth of microplastics in a lifetime. There is no evidence to suggest that this is in any way harmful—but that is no reason not to PANIC!! and claim victim status and lots of compenbloodysation from the rest of the world.

Ain't we virtuous!
Congrats are due to the National Grid, which has been able to massage the energy production figures to pretend that more came from occasionals, nuclear and wood ships imported at great expense and with a huge carbon footprint from America than from fossil fuels in 2019.
    The equation includes energy imports from abroad, which is a huge cheat, but who cares if it lets us wave our virtue flags?
reader comment“Sadly, none of this has made any measurable impact on the Earth's climate and Australia is still having its annual summer heat wave. But hey, we can pretend, right?” C.B.

Far Queue symbol President MacRon of France is going to give a Legion d'Honeur gong to the city of London in June to thank the Cockneys for winning World War II and liberating France? 75 years too late?
    And what about the rest of Britain, the Commonwealth and the USA? Too little way too late. Typical useless Froggie gesture.

bulletQ: What do you get after a 27-day rail strike in the south-west of England?
bulletA: No trains because all the striking guards need to be retrained!

Lateral thinking
In March of 2009, Prince Chuck proclaimed that we had 100 months to save The Planet. That deadline has come and gone and were ain't dead yet. Or has it? Maybe he was talking in hexadecimal and giving us 160 decimal months, which means that we're still okay until June of 2022. Phew!

Sieg Flat!Heads or Tails Loser or No Balls, Please!
Pixie Cooper, failed Syrian refugee host and wife of the appalling Flatline Ed of that ilk, has binned her Labour leadership ambitions to avoid the humiliation of having to sit on the sidelines of politics, powerless, if she were to win the job. Not that she had any sort of a chance anyway.
reader comment“The Corbynistas are said to be grooming a continuity candidate to replace their fallen hero. Is that continuity as in IRA?” D.S.

bulletQ: How do you scare parents into getting their kids vaccinated?
bulletA: Start spreading stories of animal diseases jumping species to humans if the vaccination rate falls any lower.

The big banks are planning to make branches Xtinct by 2025. Along with cash money as a medium of exchange.

bullet If you want your bins emptied in Birmingham, forget it. The staff are all off sick with an Xmas 'n' New Year bug.

Oh, dear! The BBC is bracing itself for compenbloodysation claims from male-identifying staff who were paid LESS than female-identifying staff doing the same job. What goes around . . .

Plain useless
The latest way for teenage gangsters to get away with multiple mugging charges is to claim they were modern slaves of a gang leader. There are dummoxes @ the Home Office who are only too eager to believe them and let them walk out of custody and get away with everything.
    Next thing you know, the CPS bins the slavery charge and the gang leader walks, too.

The Daily Mail is proposing Princess Kate for the role played by Jaclyn Smith (curly, dark hair) in a remake of the TV series Charlie's Angels.

Far Queue symbol London's cosmetic mayor, Sadgeek Can't, is presiding over a Tube system which is more polluted than the underground railways of Los Angeles, New York, Peking and Seoul. No surprise there.

New political accessory
Being the figurehead of the Liberal party is getting less and less inclusive. Men need not apply, nor women who are not from an ethnic minority. And now, a membership card for the Algae Boutique is being viewed as an essential attention-getter.

bulletQ: What do you do if you're a Detroit fire crew @ a house that's ablaze from top to bottom?
bulletA: Make sure the place is empty then line up for a selfie with the bonfire in the background.

Ideologically bullet-proof and beyond redemption
The head of the government's deradicalization programme has concluded that Islamist terrorists can't be cured as they have a personality which seeks aggravation. Dumping then down a deep, dark hole remains the only sensible thing to do with them.

bulletQ: What do you do if there's a scandal in the NHS and customers die?
bulletA: Investigate it 40 years later to ensure that all those responsible get away with it.

cross symbol Veganists are trying to get their lifestyle declared a religion instead of an obsession or a psychiatric disorder so that they can get away with even more tiresome antics in the field of employment and claim compen-bloody-sation for being fired for being a bloody nuisance and an obstructive piece of crapola.

Nothing ever changes; that is the point
A former chief waxwork of the civil service has warned those who want to shake it up that they need to be realistic about the pace of reform.
Translation: The civil service has 2 speeds, dead slow and dead stop.

reader comment“We are told that now a new decade has begun, everyone is making resolutions to go to the gym, stop smoking, be virtuous, etc. How much bollocks is in that sentence? A hell of a lot.
    “No. 1: There's no connection between these resolutions and this alleged new decade. People have been making cosmetic New Year resolutions (and binning them) for . . . ever.
   No. 2: Not everyone does it.” A.M.
reader comment“No. 3: The resolution thing is part of a plug for a book by a professor who thinks MPs should give up boozing in their place of work so that they give sober consideration to the tomfoolery that goes on there. Like they would every consider doing that!” T.P.

A brief moment of fiscal rectitude
Conscious of the responsibilities facing them in a new decade, the nation's credit card users made more payments than pledges during last November, reducing the national credit card debt for the first (and probably the last) time since records began!
reader comment“Optimists are suggesting that such events may become more frequent as The Planet tips over the edge into gorbal warming. Pessimists are proclaiming the opposite view and attracting much more support in opinion polls.” T.E.

cross symbol If you are planning to fly anywhere, make sure there are no superstitious Chinese people on the passenger list as they are liable to throw coins into the plane's engines 'for good luck' with the result that the flight is grounded for engine safety checks and hauling the Chinese saboteur off to a police station. (If there is one still open.)

A welcome week off
Supporters of the Green Bay Packers were surprised and delighted that their team skipped Wildcard Weekend and had a wee cough. On Saturday, the Texans squeaked an overtime win over the feisty Bills and the Titans marched into New England and put Armstrong Athletic back in their box in a match full of drama in the last 15 seconds.
    On Sunday, the Vikings did a hell of a job to get past the Saints in overtime in New Orleans. After all the stick Kirk Cousins got before the match, he's either entitled to claim the win as his and his alone, or he has now proved that all he needs to win are some decent team mates. The Eagles lost their quarterback to injury in a home defeat by the Armstrong Athletic of the NFC, the Seattle Seaweeds. No overtime.

The comrades say NO!
No surprise that the workshy peasants are revolting in Paris against the MacRon reforms of the public sector pension system and his plan to merge 42 separate rackets into a single one.
    The unions are complaining that their members would have to shirk beyond the current official retirement age of 62, which would be cruel and unusual. Presumably, because by then, the comrades are worn out after a life of heavy drinking and cheese-eating, and going on strike instead of working.

bulletQ: What does it take to cause a sensation among the twits on Twatter?
bulletA: Something as trivial as a game-show contestant not being able to come up with a name for Greenhouse Grotter.

Things to come?
In Sweden, banks holding deposits of more than 70 billion kroner [$7.5 billion] are now required by law to make sure that customers have access to cash, even in rural areas, where thousands of people have to travel over 20 kilometres to reach a cash machine.
   What's the catch? Not until January 1st 2021.
    No minimum travel distance was specified by law and Swedes are expecting the banks to pull off the biggest swindle they can manage. Something British citizens would be well advised to keep an eye on as the banks here keep on trying to harvest our cash on a non-returnable basis.

Marine mass murder
Mackerel are being branded the locusts of the ocean because they are gobbling up so much aquatic grub and smaller fish that they are driving fellow fish salmon into Xtinction though starvation.
bullet A gorbal warming connection is currently being cobbled together as a matter of urgency and will be available shortly.

bullet The Penrith suburb of wildfire-assailed Sydney is claiming a new world record temperature of 49.9 deg.C. Which is not even close to the 125.6 deg.F recorded at Romiley Weather Centre last July.

Typical management failure to make the buggers pay
The Metropolitan police reckon they get 22,000 nuisance calls from people dialling 999 to whinge about something trivial, like ordering one sausage from a takeaway joint but having three delivered.
    If a fine of £100 were to be imposed for wasting police time, that would raise over two million quid for the Met's coffers. Almost enough to fund another Operation Midland.
    But, of course, the waxwork tendency in police circles is all about moaning about how hard the customers make their lives rather than coming up with effective solutions to vexatious issues.

Absolute Panic! Confect Outrage!
cross symbol You have to wonder about the mentality of the journos and usual suspects who were moaning because our PM didn't get the RAF to whisk him back here, at huge expense to the taxpayer, when President Trump exterminated a major Iranian terrorist. We live in an age of communications and it's not as if the PM was out in the wilds and out of reach.
    He was in touch with his minions here, and there's little more he could have done, had he dashed back from his holiday retreat, other than jump through a few control-freak hoops.
    Same with the Australian prime minister, who was on holiday during some of the bush fire crisis. He, too, would have been in full touch with home base and able to give any necessary orders. And it's not as if the fires weren't on TV, which was available to him.
    We're supposed to be living in the 21st century but you'd think we were still in the 14th or 15th from the way some of the idiots around us behave.

Far Queue symbol Stand by for a book plug. The appalling Nonce Finder Watson has one coming out called Downsizing. His enemies say it's all about his role in reducing the size of the parliamentary Labour party by 59 bodies last December.

Ah, that's why we've had all the hype about the start of a new decade. It's so that the trial of Harvey Weenstine in New York can be described as the trial of the decade.
reader comment“That's if the defence and the prosecution between them can stack a jury to their mutual liking.” R.W.

bullet Delhi, the capital of hot India, has recorded its coldest day for 119 years. But don't expect the gorbal warming fraudsters to mention this, though.

bullet DNA tweaking could be used to rid the British Isles of the imported grey squirrels and create a safer environment for the native reds. But there is bound to be an outcry of outrage when pests are eliminated. There always is.

cross symbol Electric cars and hybrids are in danger of Xtinction before they take over the world, thanks to the activities of dodgy scrap metal merchants. They are providing a ready source of income for thieves, who can whip off a precious metal-containing catalytic converter in a minute or so. Small, well-placed pieces of lead could be used to cure this problem.

 WEEK 2 

 
bulletQ: What's a good way to upset veganists and vegetarianists?
bulletA: Create a plant-based burgher recipe for semi-pro veggies but cook it on the grill used for meaty burghers and serve with regular mayo.

bullet France is still on strike. No surprise there.

Win, whine
Small shops in Germany are having to issue a receipt for every purchase, which is annoying the customers because of the extra pieces of paper flying around. But the move is seen as a necessary step in the battle against tax fraud by small shops. Few customers bother with the receipts, which provide the recycling industry with further fodder.

Old gaol, big fail
The screws @ Winchester prison, one of the most ancient and crumbling in the country, are unable to keep track of the cons. Thus they have no idea whether the customers are banged up in the calls, off rioting somewhere or hiding and making some home-brew booze.
    HM Inspectorate of Prisons is not too pleased.

bullet Australia is getting a bit of rain but it is expected to make as little difference to the massive bush fires as Britain going cosmetically carbon-neutral.

Your face has to fit
The BAFTA Beefers are binning the excellence card in favour of the diversity card in future. If you're white, male and hetero, forget a nomination. Especially if you're provocatively able as well. Similarly, able-bodied white women might have a small chance of making the cut, but not a terribly big one.

bullet If you're happy and you're well off, you have a great chance of being a success in life, the Xperts have concluded after massive deliberation. Well, who'da thunk it!

bullet The Manchester rapist, who got only 30 years for his record number of crimes, is a foreigner with rich parents. So he has a major excuse for what he did.

So now you know
According to the token Northerner who is Labour's incontinuity leadership candidate, O.J. Corbynski turned in a 10 out of 10 performance in the election and it was the news meeja and the people who got it wrong.

Far Queue symbol Anyone who wants to chuck a rotten egg or a squashy tomato at O.J. Corbynski whilst he is the Labour leader has until the beginning of April to get the job done.

One minute, you're reading about TransPennine Express cancelling half of its trains because the new rolling stock has arrived 18 months late and they need to retrain all their drivers.

The way things are going, our local trains operator, Northern, is about to be binned, in a shower of excuses, for being an utter shambles, which means that quite shortly (or even longly, given the miserable speed of action of government departments), train travellers will get chaos and shambles sponsored by the public sector rather than the private sector.

Divisional Delights

cross symbol PLASTIC is not the problem.
LITTER-LOUTS are.

bullet Bank customers in Arbroath are having trouble using an ATM which is placed 5 feet off the ground. Shame that platform shoes went out of fashion!

Nothing is what needs to be done
Wee Burney Sturgeon has been warned that The People will not stand for her throwing taxpayers' money at lawyers over President Boris opting not to endorse yet another independence referendum less than a generation after the last one.
    Her alternative is to get civil servants to waste time and money on wibble instead of addressing Scotland's multiple problems of education, transport, the NHS, policing, ect., ect.

Daftness should be taken to extremes
If you can have meatless meatballs, why not make them cubes instead of spheres to complete the absurdity? Why not have 'meatballs' which have as little to do with roundness as they do with meat?

A spot of fun before the big one
The Pro Bowl on the cheap; in Miami instead of Hawaii; was 14-24 in the favour of the AFC at half time.
    It got a bit lively in Q3 with the AFC hitting the NFC quarterback on the way to Mr. Cousins finding Mr. Adams with a TD pass, and then doing 'roughing the conversion' to block the kick attempt. 27-31 instead of 28-31, going in to Q4.
    The final quarter included the shambles of the NFC trying to make 4th & 15 from their 25 instead of trying an on-side kick. They didn't manage it and they finished the match 33-38 down.

Brexit 50p coinbulletQ: How petty can a Bremoaner get?
bulletA: Some of them are claiming that they won't touch this Friday's Brexit 50p coins with the proverbial barge pole.

Far Queue symbol Bollocks to Berko keeps being embarrassed by even more bullying claims. Which only goes to confirm that what went around really does come back to bite the arse of some people who deserve it.

tick symbol Britain's departure from the EU is encouraging some of Switzerland's politicians to think that they, too, might be able to put an end to free movement and impose quotas on who gets to go to their country.
    The crafty sods are playing the gorbal warming card by describing migration as the biggest driver of wasted resources, and therefore the main driver of carbon dioxide emissions. Migration has not benefitted the Swiss and some of them want to stop taking orders from Brussels.

Improper job
The Liberals who were elected to be MEPs in last year's pointless Euro elections are upset that they're not getting a pension after just 8 months in the job, which they knew all along was cosmetic and temporary.
   Grabbing buggers!

Major victory
The Conservative Maastricht rebels, who didn't approve of the donation of sovereignty made to the EbloodyU in 1992, will be having their own celebration on Brexit Day. Took them 27 years to do it but they won the argument in the end.

cross symbol The NHS is being investigated after being infiltrated by a natural birth cult, which believes that childbirth should be unassisted with artificial means and painful, and that customers should be denied pain relief.

tick symbol The Daily Mail and President Boris have declared war on litter. Let us hope that President Boris extends the campaign to include serious penalties for litter louts, and the same for jobsworths who try to issue fixed penalty tickets for non-littering in order to put money in their own pockets.

Totally lost cause
Northern Rail, which is about to lose its franchise, is run by Aviva, which is run by Deutsche Bahn. If the Germans can't make a go of running the franchise, what hope do a bunch of civil service waxworks have?

bulletQ: How much is an Oscar going to be worth if it is based on diversity quotas rather than an outstanding acting performance?
bulletA: A busted flush.

reader comment“Does Bollocks to Berko realize that his shameless lobbying for a peerage from any source; even O.J. Corbynski; is putting in danger his place in the Guinness Book of Records as the only Commons Squeaker in 230 years not to get one as of right?” R.W.

Brexit 50p coinMore fodder for the Far Queue
Another class of whingers is complaining that the Brexit 50p doesn't have an Oxford comma after 'prosperity', and they won't use it because it doesn't comply with their version of English grammar.
    As this is a version which is wrong anywhere else; no comma is needed after the word just before 'and'; should any of these whingers ever come to Romiley, we will feel fully entitled to tar and feather them and run them out of town on a rail in the approved fashion.

reader comment“That Irish Teashop is a really arrogant wee scunner, telling us we're just an unimportant little country now we're leaving the EbloodyU. Makes me glad my New Year Resolution was not to buy anything Irish.” J.R.

 WEEK 5 

 
Is it national sucker day?
The first nuisance call was from 01723 352 878—a computer generated voice announcing that a non-existent Amazon Prime contract would be cancelled unless the sucker pressed '1'.
    Later that same morning, there was another nuisance call from the improbably long 001441984520485 doing the VISA scam for ". . . five . . nine . . nine" and providing another opportunity not to press '1' to talk to some bloody scammer.

bullet DEPARTURES The essential Nicholas Parsons, 96, yesterday. [January 28th, Ed.] He had an amazingly long acting career from films to television to his big success in Sale of the Century and over 50 years (!) as chairman of Just A Minute on the wireless. There are even a few old bodies left around who remember when he was the straight man to Arthur Haynes, whose trade mark was to call everyone 'mate'.
    Mr. Parsons, the actor, was as irreplaceable as Kenneth Williams.

tick symbol Corporate manslaughter charges against the waxworks of Highways England over the 38 deaths on their not-so-bloody-smart motorways over the last 5 years? Sounds like something which should definitely happen.

Unexpected outcome
Apparently, the cladding on Grenfell Tower, applied to prevent global warming, was supposed to fall off if it was ever ignited by flames coming from inside the building, and the disaster was caused by this not happening.

bulletQ: What does the appalling Jo Brand get when, on the BBC, she recommends throwing acid at someone?
bulletA: Away with it because that's the sort of appalling thing her audience Xpects of her.

Maybe he has a good reason
A self-important FBI's mouthpiece was asking why Prince Andrew won't talk to them. Maybe he doesn't want to end up with his neck broken in three places like the late Mr. Epstein.
reader comment“One does get the impression that prosecutors see cases like this as a way to make themselves into public figures on the way to a better career, usually in politics, than in pursuit of an account of what actually happened.” R.W.
Surprise! Prince Andrew sez the FBI's stooges have been too busy grandstanding to make an appointment to talk to him!

tick symbol That was a great suggestion by Little John of the Daily Mail—sending Greenhouse Grotter out to sea on her ecoyacht to pick bits of plastic out of the oceans and save the world from climate change.

bulletQ: Which is more remarkable—that The Goodies are still pals enough to do a 50th anniversary show at a comedy festival in Bristol or that all three of them are still alive?
bulletA: Take your pick.

Wine tomorrow but maybe not the same as today’s
Some species of grape will not be able to handle gorbal warming, some will, the Xperts reckon. And to think people actually get paid for coming up with this and similar statements of the bleedin' obvious!
reader comment“If all this is going to happen after 2050, the wine trade has more than enough time to create varieties able to survive the weather being 2¢ hotter.” P.L.
reader comment“If the wine-breeders fail, the growers can always put huge polytunnels over their vineyards and cool the interior with the exhaust from wind farms.” T.H.
reader comment“The enterprising wine-growers will cope but the lazy ones will probably just go broke and yell for compenbloodysation.” R.W.

cross symbol Travel reduced in China due to the corona virus lock-down, oil prices down, petrol pump prices falling? Joke! Fuel company pockets even bulgier.

bulletQ: Why are there so many helicopter crashes/tragedies?
bulletA: Because helicopter pilots can get themselves into irretrievable situations, through negligence or sheer bad luck, a lot more easily than pilots of fixed-wing aircraft.

More Xtinction garbage
A glacier 'the size of Britain' is hanging off western Antarctica and being melted by the warmer sea. If it collapses, the Xperts reckon it will raise sea levels by a foot and a half; but calling it the 'Doomsday Glacier' is just self-indulgent, victimhood wibble.
    Glaciers flow down to the sea; it's what they do. Glaciers melt; something else that they do. Fraudsters claim they can change this; it's what they do.

bulletQ: Six BILLION bloody quid to fix the botched smart motorway 'upgrades'? Will heads roll at the Department of Transport and Highways England?
bulletA: You're having a giraffe.

Far Queue symbol The BBC's DG has realized that his minions don't have an entitlement to be rude to politicians, especially Tories. You can tell this DG is in the process of being defenestrated if he's got his eyes open all of a sudden.

Brexit 50p coinreader comment“Are we going to shoot some Roman candles in O.J. Corbynski's direction when we celebrate Brexit? After all, it can be argued that he helped to deliver it by being so crap as an alternative to the Conservatives that we ended up with a government capable of delivering Brexit after a general election that shot the Bremoaners down in flames.” W.H.
reader comment“We are being urged not to celebrate Brexit noisily to avoid upsetting the Bremoaners. Given that they have spent three years wasting BILLIONs of pounds of taxpayers' money on trying to frustrate the referendum result, the bastards deserve all the upset they get and a bit more.” J.M.

Far Queue symbol A Japanese billionaire who advertised for a female companion to join him on a round the Moon trip on a SpaceX vehicle during or after 2023 has got cold feet. The 27,722 women who offered their services are now accusing him of being the biggest time-waster of all time.

There’s nowt as angry as an ape!
reader comment“If the veteran ITV newsreader A. Stewart is 67, it's about time he slipped gracefully into retirement and let someone else do the autocues. Now that ITV has fired him, he can get into as many rows with the twits on Twatter as he likes without having waxworks peering over his shoulder.” A.F.

Grotter action figureKerching!
Greenhouse Grotter, saucy little madam, is trying to trademark her name to stop anyone else from cashing in on her personal brand of teenage angst. Watch out for the Grotter action figure -->
    No doubt she's keeping half an eye on what Prince Hairy and Mhegan are up to in search of up-market inspiration.

cross symbol The US washing machine manufacturer Whirlpool has added 5,000 more units to its list of 500,000 household appliances with the potential to become a novelty barbeque unexpectedly. The company has no idea where 354,000 of the half million potential time bombs are, which is bad news for fire brigades and insurance companies everywhere.

Oriental logic
The Chinese are adopting a peculiar strategy toward British people caught in their virus zone. Those with British citizenship can leave—except that evacuation aircraft are not being allowed to land in China. People with dual nationality, e.g. wives and children, will not be allowed to leave even if there were transport available. Work that one out!
reader comment“Maybe the Chinese are doing us a favour by not letting people who might have been exposed to the virus to travel to the UK, given the shambolic nature of the international response to this latest gift from the Orient. Self-isolation? Joke!” R.W.
update Some British citizens, along with some non-Brits, have been allowed to fly to Britain to go either into quarantine or back where they came from. Some Brits were unable to get transport to the airport in China and are still stuck there. SNAFU.

reader comment“All the film industry hookstars must be trembling in their boots in anticipation of the blaze of publicity which will follow Harvey Wheensteen's accounts in court of his career enhancement via personal services procedures.” G.P.

Lest we forget
Soviet forces did not arrive in Poland in 1944 to liberate the country. They steamed in to incorporate it into the Greater Soviet Empire—the whole of it as opposed to the part of Poland they claimed when Stalin and Hitler divided the country between their respective Lebensraum spheres of interest.

Below the line mission statement: Some of the above is true.
   We are constantly exposed to dodgy conclusions drawn from dodgy data by the 'experts', especially those found in the world of politics and especially those at the Treasury and in opposition. Some of us civilians at BFN like to join in to let them know that anyone can do it and we ain't impressed by their efforts.
