Notice: From this month on, the government has ordered all websites to treat visitors as if they are children. Thus if we treat you like ignorant, stroppy teenage Grotters, it's nothing to do with President Boris (or us) and all to do with the waxworks of the civil service who come up with these regulations.
Please take note of this warning and conduct yourself accordingly.


 WEEK 1 

 
Brexit postage stampThanks be to the Nigel—we’re out!
The Romiley Brexit fireworks display was a great success. And bunging the Berko on the Brexit Bonfire proved very popular.
    We'll probably do it again next year.

reader comment“Pardon me for not noticing the moment of Brexit—well, the start of the transition to exit. I was watching a crap film on TV at the time.” M.K.

Democracy has won a rare victory over Europeonism
It's happening! We're a bunch of trannies. We're transitioning out of the death grip of the EbloodyU and there's nothing the Bremoaners can do to stop it legally. [Not that they won't try. Ed.] Na-na naa naaah, hey, hey, hey, goo-ood-bye!

bulletQ: How much does a free Brexit tea towel cost?
bulletA: If you get it from the Daily Mail, £2.50.

Ofgem, the alleged regulator, stands accused of letting power companies overcharge their customers by £800 MILLION since 2012. Bloody waxworks.

Cultural shift
Now is the time for all oldies to stock up on black tea, e.g. PG tips, before it is driven into Xtinction by the current racialist fad for herbal concoctions, which bear little resemblance to proper tea.

“You're fired but we’re cool about it.”
Good news for the BBC waxworks on 6-figure salaries! They will not be involved in the cull of bodies in the name of cosmetic cost-cutting. Only the little people will go. Especially if they don't have a non-job with a silly name.

bullet The 85-year-old previous Lord Lucan (vanished in 1974 after blotting escutcheon) has been spotted again for the umpteenth time, in Australia this time. Or not.

reader comment“Is the nation going to unite in joy on May 8th, the 75th anniversary of VE Day? It's as unlikely as everyone in England uniting in a 'We hate Normans' day on October 14th, the anniversary of the battle @ Hastings in 1066.
    “Like the Norman adventure, World War II is now history and should be left to moulder quietly in a cupboard with the rest of our past, glorious and inglorious.” A.T.G.

bulletQ: What can you say when you're caught in the act of battering a document display case with a hammer to try to steal a copy of the Magna Carta from Salisbury Cathedral?
bulletA: I thought it was a fake.
[Didn't do any good. Ed.]

It's official! The new Squeaker of the House of Common Criminals has banned the Berko Bullying Culture.


Greenhouse Grotter is trying to trademark her name to stop anyone else from cashing in on her personal brand of teenage angst.

Get them from Romiley Grotter Exploitation, 43b Riverside Drive


reader comment“How naive of the serial Bremoaners to vow to have nothing to do with the Brexit 50p coin. No one, even the dimmest of the rest of us, believes that they ever put a hand in their pocket to spend their own money. Not when there are taxpayers and stooges to sponge off.” S.J.

Nothing even remotely resembling joined-up thinking
A gang of evacuees from China's virus zone arrives @ an RAF station on a chartered jet to be ushered by aliens in spacesuits to coaches. They are driven from Brize Norton in Oxfordshire to a hospital in Wirral. Some of them by a bloke with a big tattoo on his left forearm.
    How do we know about the tattoo? Because he wasn't wearing a spacesuit, like the medical escorts, and he had his sleeves rolled up. Instead of getting a spacesuit, the coach drivers were offered a fortnight's paid self-isolation at home. Weird.
    Public sector managers are from another planet.

Another emergency
Britain's bank robbing community has declared an equipment emergency. Non-criminals are buying up face masks faster than they can be manufactured, putting the livelihoods of some of the criminal community at risk.
bullet WARNING! Cloth face masks are inferior to surgical ones for filtering out airborne particles. In fact, they are pretty useless for anything other than hiding the face.

Has to do far better
The Corbidiot Continuity Candidate in the Labour leadership show is going to have to become a more convincing liar if she hopes to get anywhere. Every big lie she tells is being shot full of holes effortlessly. Same with the medium and small ones.

bulletQ: What do you wear with a pair of jeans with holey knees?
bulletA: How about a two-grand designer jacket with its sleeves torn off by hand by an artisan tailor? Suits you, sir!

reader comment“What exactly is wrong with the president of the United States asking the president of Ukraine to find out what the Biden billionaire and his family are up to in Ukraine? Apart from nothing.” W.C.

cross symbol Why did THEY let some Islamist nutter out of prison to attack people in a London street? Because THEY are incapable of recognizing a homicidal lump of human crap when confronted by one? Or because the laws of the land and the people who administer them in the courts are inadequate? Pick a side.

Face to face; but with whom?
A small gang of inventive criminals used Skype and a silicone mask of a French minister to chat up the rich and famous and seek to extract cash from them. Of 150 potential mugs, three of them coughed up millions to fund a secret operation, expecting to be repaid by the French state and receive its gratitude. The gang of 7 was busted before it could re-jig the scam using a mask of Prince Albert II of Monaco.

Super Bowl LIVSuper Duper in Miami
Was that Demi Lobotomy who did the American national anthem with some superfluous flourishes? Then we got the Kansas City Chiefs, who haven't won for 50 years playing the San Francisco 49ers, who haven't won for just 25 years.
    KC were 3 and gone. The 9ers opened with a field goal, 3-0. KC reached 4th & 1 at the SF 5, made it to the 1, TF for Mahomes, 3-7 in the last minute of the first quarter. SF were stopped by a pick after a minute of Q2.
    The Chiefs kicked a FG in the 6th minute, 3-10. A TD for Jackson after 10 minutes made it 10-all. KC punted with a minute left and the half fizzled out. Cue an eternity of messing about on the field.
    A FG in the 6th minute of Q3 put SF 13-10 ahead. KC were stopped by a pick in the 10th minute. On to a TD in the 13th minute for SF and 20-10. The 9ers did nothing with another pick 3 minutes in to Q4. 9 minutes to go when KC restarted. DPI in the end zone got them to the SF 1. TD for Kelce (who else?), 20-17, 6 minutes to go.
    If this were the CFL, someone would be saying 'no lead is safe' and everyone else would be nodding wisely.
    SF were 3 & gone. A TD for Williams with 2:44 left put KC 20-24 up. The 9ers went out on downs with 1:25 left. Two plays and a 38-yard TD for Williams, 20-31. A pick by Fuller gave the ball back to KC with 57 seconds to eat. The End. Phew!

bulletQ: How do you get yourself busted for being part of the £50M Ecclestone robbery?
bulletA: Be a cleaner and turn up at Stansted airport wearing £30K looted earrings.

bulletQ: How do you shut down Venice?
bulletA: Find a 500lb WW2 bomb when repairing a sewer.

Do these characters ever read the tripe they write?
Was L. van Beethoven totally deaf at the age of 44 or did he have some residual hearing in his left ear despite his tinnitus? An Xpert, we were told yesterday, believes he 'could still hear out of his left ear'. What!?!?
    We hear 'with' our ears. We don't hear 'out of' them. 'Out of' is emission, like speech, rather than reception. Claiming that Beethoven could hear out of one of his ears has to be a strong contender for the stupidest piece of journalism of the decade.

bullet Women of pension age have overtaken men in the financial profligacy stakes. More of them are going bankrupt than men for the first time ever.

A spot of copy editing needed
"Terror Maniac wanted to kill an MP" invites 'completely useless' as a prologue and 'but failed miserably' as an epilogue.
reader comment“There must be a special circle in Hell for the 'uman bluddy rights lawyers who let these characters out of gaol. A place where the lawyers are in the pillory all day and every day and at the mercy of their innocent victims.” T.P.
reader comment“The only practical way to deal with the Islamist threat is to pay the Russians to shuffle these characters off to one of their forced labour camps in Siberia until they become de-radicalized or croak.” V.I.L.

No wonder they're called Democraps
The best the equivalent of the Corbidiot tendency in the USA can offer to challenge The Donald is a billionaire socialist, who would bankrupt America with giveaways—think O.J. only older and way, way richer; and Pres. O'Bummer's antique vice-president, who looks more ready for a retirement home than the White House and has a very dodgy past, especially his Ukraine Connection.
    There's also a woke joke lady, who has the support of the victimhood-seeking liberals, an ex-lawyer, an ex-service ex-mayor called Buttiegeek who ticks the homosexual box and The Bloomberg, the media tycoon who is too grand to attend the petty initial rounds of the selection process in fly-over places like Iowa, and who has more than enuff billions to buy any presidency.
    As it turned out, Mr. Bloomberg had the right idea. The pocket phone crApp used by the Democraps didn't work and the world had to wait hours (yawn!) to learn that the Buttie Candidate was top of the pops after the first flurry of activity.

They will cling to their delusions
"I cudda bin a contender. I cudda bin somebody."
"Actually, Jeremy, you couldn't. You're rubbish. Always have been, always will be."

Britain is facing a doughnut emergency after the factory in West Yorkshire which supplies wholesalers and the big supermarkets went up in flames during the Super Bowl weekend.

Kill ’em all, the long and the short and the tall
Ofrip, the toothless energy regulator, is planning to reduce the country's population by enacting laws to rip out gas central heating systems and replace them with unaffordable electrical systems, for which there will be insufficient power.
    If the plan goes ahead, deaths of the elderly and the vulnerable will increase by 76,000 to 83,000 during cold winter months. Ofrip calculates that the population could be down to 58,000,000 carbon dioxide-emitters by 2060.

bulletQ: What do you call an ex-prime monster's bodyguard who leaves his sidearm in the toilet of a commercial jet on the verge of a transAtlantic flight?
bulletA: An ex-bodyguard.

Feb 6th is the 49th anniversary of Alan Shepard, commander of Apollo 14, losing a couple of golf balls on the Moon. Swinging his improvised club one-handed, he reckoned he drove the second ball for miles and miles and miles; certainly too far to make taking another swing at it a practical proposition.

bullet Pocket phone zombies who don't look where they are going are experiencing an increasing rate of accidents. Xperts reckon that they will become Xtinct in 134.6 years.

bulletQ: How does Shropshire council avoid repairing potholes in the county's roads?
bulletA: By blowing the repair cash on a Potole Tsar, who gets £21,667 of taxpayers' cash PER MONTH, instead of repairing potoles @ 50 quid a pop.
bullet Blackpool council is using a spy satellite to spot potoles within its jurisdiction.

Flim with an overdose of flam
Britain's efforts to 'fight' climate change are not so much "miles off track", as the bossy lady who was sacked from running the coming Glasgow summit claims. They're a complete waste of time and money and we don't have the means to control the climate, no matter what politicians, snake oil salespersons and other crooks tell us.
    And when President Boris sounds off about The Planet being enclosed in a security blanket of carbon dioxide, he's talking piffle de peffel.

Long grass boot
Charging a British fleet of electric cars overnight would require DOUBLE the current generating capacity of the ENTIRE EU, and also the infrastructure to deliver all that power to individual charging points, which doesn't exist and would cost a BOMB! to create.
    This is something obvious that the nutters who want to ban sales of internal combustion-powered cars after 2035 are ignoring. Why? Because they know it's just not deliverable and they'll all be retired on a fat public sector pension by then?

Bicycle thieves in Belgium are in for a real shock. They are being given an additional three years in gaol for the crime against The Planet of forcing their bikeless victim(s) to use a car to get about instead of the bike, and thus causing gorbal warming.

 WEEK 2 

 
Wonderful reward
The Chinese doctor who first spotted people with the new corona virus strain in Wuhan, and was harassed by the police when he tried to alert the authorities and made to sign a false admission of malicious rumour-mongering, has been killed by the virus.
    As for Chinese SARS, medical professionals who come into contact with infected people in the early stages of the outbreak of a new virus strain tend to receive enough of the virus to overload their immune system before it can respond to the assault.
    If there were any justice in the world, this doctor would merit a statue in Wuhan. But there ain't.

bullet The Channel Island of Guernsey has started to make cash out of selling post-Brexit fishing licences to the French.

Rip-off Warning
The Warmists are trying to blame the decline of some species of bumblebee on man-made global warming rather than natural changes in the climate and major changes in farming and land-management practices. Expect a demand for cash from them any day soon.
    Maybe naturalists need to be taken to re-education centres to remind them that their job is to chart the rise and fall of species and their interactions, and not to pretend that they know what the ideal climate is or that an effective form of climate control is currently possible rather than science fiction.

Put on a happy smile!
The Office of National Sadistics has concluded that the nation was subjected to a severe attack of Brexit Blues courtesy of the activities of the sad Bremoaners and their Project Fear.
   Now that they are in the dustbin of history, the ONS confidently expects a huge upswing in national confidence and cheerfulness.

bulletQ: Is anyone in the Dept. of Justice going to be taken to task for giving over 200 grand in legal aid to a rogue surgeon, who mutilated thousands of women, to fund the defence at his trial and a failed appeal after he was sent to gaol?
bulletA: Joke. And don't even ask about the NHS managers who let him run riot for 14 years.

No longer needed or The people who put the ‘con’ into constabulary
HM Inspectorate of Constabulary has determined that the British public has given up on their police farces. They have no expectation that the police will record crimes, never mind try to solve them.
    The bad news for the police is that if they have nothing to do, there is no point to having them on the public payroll and some redundancies will be inevitable. Which will help recruitment for private security firms.

bullet The Hollywood mentality has infected film-makers in Italy, who are now trying to make the ubiquitous Mafia criminals into glamorous anti-heroes.

And the rest of us should know that the news that comes out of China is heavily censored and it is likely that much worse things are happening.
bullet On the one hand, corona is described as a deadly virus; on the other, people infected with it can be described as 'not in a serious condition'. Spit the bones out of that!

Diversity revealed
The true nature of diversity is emerging out of the fog surrounding President Boris's coming Cabinet reshuffle.

President Boris is keen to pretend to be green, but he's not thinking things through. [Surprise! Ed.] Only the rich will be able to afford electric cars if the subsidies are abolished. And if they aren't, the moderately well off who don't have a driveway will have to sacrifice their modest front gardens to obtain an off-road charging space for an electric car. And the loss of what will be millions of acres of former-garden greenish space will really please the nation's ecoterrorists!

Gimme, gimme, gimme, NOW!
President MacRon is getting impatient with outgoing German Kanzler Angular Mherkel over her opposition to his ideas for 'strengthening' the EbloodyU post-Brexit. As most of the ideas involve German taxpayers paying more to France, and Europe paying for protection from the French army and its nuclear weapons instead of NATO, it's not too surprising.
The French foreign minister is determined to get in to a post-Brexit ass-kicking contest over trade with Britain which will 'rip both countries apart'. No wonder we spent most of the last millennium at war with them.

Not thinking big, thinking GIGANTIC
The Met Office is to get a billion-pound-plus supercomputer to replace its present supercomputer, which cost a mere hundred million quid. The current computer is good for offering a big picture. The new one will add more detail; if the programming is any good.

Planet X is 90 years old
February 18th marked the 90th anniversary of the discovery of a new planet, the presence of which had been predicted mathematically. Clyde Tomaugh, who was just 23 at the time, had spent a year at the Lowell Observatory in Arizona examining pairs of night sky photographs taken at different times, looking for an object which had shifted its position; something which stars don't do over the time period involved.
   Planet X acquired the name Pluto. It has yet to complete a circuit of our Sun since its discovery, having an orbital period of 247.68 Earth years. In 2006, the International Astronomical Union attempted to deprive Pluto of its planetary status. Didn't work.

Today’s Revelation
Greenhouse Grotter has a rival; she's called Tanya, she's rather supernatural and she looks a lot more fun than the troubled little girl with understanding ishues and irrational anger ishues.


Politics & Academia; a poisonous brew
The Xpert commissioned by Gordon F. Broon, the man responsible for the Decade of Austerity, has blamed a world-wide plateau in life expectancy on austerity in Britain, ignoring the fact that the NHS and the poor here have done rather better than anyone else during the period since the Brown Slump.
    Which could explain how the poor manage to get o'bese and croak early. Thrown in some spurious statistics and the Brownwash is complete.

Today’s conspiracy theory: No Olympics without Putinstan
Russia is in fact behind the CoCO19 pandemic. Why? To get this year's Olympics postponed until their ban from international competition for institutional doping runs out . . . in 2024.

reader comment“Does it ever occur to the people who want President Boris to go to flooded areas that he can see what's happening on TV and get reports from the government department which is charged with addressing the problem? Probably not.” M.D.
reader comment“Where do these characters get the notion that the PM of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is at their beck and call? He's got a whole country to run.” P.N.
reader comment“The climate has not changed very much. What we've seen is an increase in wimpery and victimhood-seeking based on smaller and smaller fractions of one percentage point and a large increase in wilful failure to manage the environment properly and sensibly.” J.F.

Canada pleads poverty
As a result of their lousy trade deal with the EbloodyU, the Canuks have realized they just can't afford the zillions it costs to protect Prince Hairy & Co. from ecofascists and other crazies. So they're not going to.

bullet It has taken 12 years to clear Barclays Bank of criminality over not going bust and becoming a drag on the taxpayer when other major banks were going bust and doing just that thanks to the Brown Slump of 2008.

cross symbol Surprise! Screen idol G.C. Looney has been paid 30 zillion bucks to advertise coffee which could have been harvested by child labour. BFN will now take the opportunity to wave a virtue flag. None of us here ever drinks Mr. Looney's pod coffee. We prefer the real thing made with Aldi's Warp 5 ground coffee. Or tea. PG, Yorkshire or anything that's on 50% extra for free' offer.
reader comment“And the effin pods are too small to recycle, despite the manufacturer's claims, without using more energy than producing new aluminium from scratch.” R.W.

 WEEK 5 

 
Wot is going on? A Leap-Year Day summary
On the one hand, we have the age-old question of what do we do when oil and gas stocks run out. Which won't happen for 200 years. On the other, we have the Warmists and environmentalists, who claim we are living in a Golden Age, which must be preserved at any cost. [That the cost will be to other people is understood. Ed.]
   The Warmists claim that a warmer climate, which was a Good Thing according to the historical record, is suddenly a Bad Thing. But if we hand them enough money to buy millions of gallons of their snake oil, everything will be okay. And the ecofascists want money to prevent the world from changing, even though it is the natural order of things.
reader comment“When are the Warmist fascist bastards going to get round to listening to the opinions of people who think having things a bit warmer is actually a good idea? Apart from never, of course.” T.J.
   And then there are the Politicians, who have to pretend that they can solve any problem, real or imaginary, and if they throw BILLIONs @ the Warmists and mortgage their country's future beyond redemption, it doesn't matter because failure will be down to the Warmists, not the Politicians.
    We also have the Drama Queens, young and old. The young pretend that the coming 'catastrophe' is something grown ups are doing to persecute them. The oldies claim that if no one listens to them, the world will go to Hell and they need to be noticed and taken seriously as wise elders. In both cases, the message is NOTICE ME!!!
    To which the obvious answer is: "We have and you're just a waste of space."

former NatWest bank branch, Romiley

“We are what we do.”
That's what the NatWest bank tells us in its TV adverts.
    Sadly, that amounted to closing the branch and buggering off, leaving the customers stranded, as far as Romiley is concerned.

For more info, have a look at this page on the Romiley Arts Federation website.


bulletQ: How do you avoid going to gaol for a violent crime despite a history of violence?
bulletA: Get the judge so baffled about which sex you are that he/she takes the easy way out and suspends the sentence.

Fair exchange
Pakistan is suffering from a plague of locusts. Official government advice to the customers is to eat the pests as an alternative food source, barbequed or in a curry, which is only fair.
    Neighbouring China is offering the services of an army of locust-eating ducks in the hope of avoiding an invasion of its own territory.

bullet Issue of the Month: Should spaghetti eaters be allowed to use scissors at the dining table in polite society to trim off inconvenient rogue strands?

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.
