If you're feeling a bit cheerful, stop it right away! The Xperts are now telling us that human civilization will collapse due to deforestation in 2-4 decades, despite all the tree-planting going on here.
   Which means that if the Chinese plague doesn't get you, there's nothing to look forward to anyway.

Start your day with a scam . . .

TV Licensing scam

bullet 80% of the population still manage to cope without a personal assistant tin can. This percentage is expected to rise dramatically when poverty in the wake of the Chinese plague trims the amount of surplus cash in circulation for frivolities.

bulletQ: How do you upset the police and local council for Richmond, South London?
bulletA: Employ private security guards to harass the yobs who have invaded the area during locko and shown up the police and council as a waste of money and space.
bullet There is no police station in Richmond; hasn't been one for years. And the nearest one; Twickenham; is currently closed. Local residents are still expected to pay council tax for non-existent policing, though.

Smiling faces, rubbed hands
bullet Good news for pension companies. They stand to make £98 BILLION out of the premature deaths cause directly and indirectly by the Chinese plague.
bullet A quickly developed and effective vaccine would be a major disaster for the industry.

Far Queue symbol Whoop 1 Goldbrick has been cancelled for being excessively entitled.

bulletQ: Why do doctors put the Chinese plague on a death cerficate even if the customer died of something else, such as heart failure due to old age?
bulletA: Because it saves the trouble and expense of a post mortem examination.

markerWhat is the Greater Manchester Spatial Framework? It sounds like a sinister plan to move Romiley to outer space. Don't let the bastards get away with it!

bullet Wearing plastic gloves is no protection against the Chinese plague, the Xperts reckon, and can give a false sense of security.

bulletQ: What's a good way to shed the reality TV person you're married to?
bulletA: Run for president of the United States, even tho' you have nilzero chance of winning.

bulletQ: Most pathetic piece of anti-vaccine propaganda on offer?
bulletA: Bill Gates wants to put tracking chips into doses of a CoCO19 vaccine and that's why he's supporting the research.
reader comment“Obviously confected by a looney who wants to feel important enuff to imagine Mr. Gates wants to know where he/she/it is at all times?” Kerr Chhing

reader comment“Given how wide the tech conspiracy has spread around the planet; MicroSoft, Gooble, Apple, etc.; what makes the loonies think that the tech hierarchy doesn't know Xactly where they are and what they're doing at all times?” Maxx Pandemic

bullet Relax locko in London and what happens? The guys with guns start shooting people again and the boy racers come out in Kensington.

markerSinging: “Who’s the bastard, who’s the bastard in the black?”
One-nil to Chelski after 5 minutes of the first Cup Final played with an invisible crowd. [So what was all that crap in the background of the TV broadcast? Ed.] Stop for drinkies after 21 minutes. Cheers! (Fuck'n wimps!)
   Artificial boos for a goal disallowed for offside? What BS. Chelski wrestling gave Ars a penalty, 1-all in the 28th minute. Hard to bear, nowhere near for Ars from a free kick just before half time and more drinkies.
   One in the car park by Ars after 57 minutes. Same by Chelski 5 minutes later. In the net by Ars after 67 minutes. 2-1, cue drinkies. Chelski were down to 10 men after 74 minutes thanks to a second yellow card for a nothing foul. A card for the manager for daring to point out that the ref was a complete a tosser?
   Afterthought: What a bunch of wimpywanky crap actors footballers are and maybe the match had to be held behind closed doors to prevent the crowd from lynching them for their dying swan acts.

markerA good place to catch the Chinese plague in Switzerland is somewhere like a bar, a nightclub or a restaurant. If you would rather have heatstroke, head for Italy, where things are sweltering.

bulletQ: Why did Russia boycott the LA Olympics in 1984?
bulletA: Not because the US didn't go to the Moscow Olympics over the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. No, it was because Sovyetskiy athletes were so full of drugs, they rattled and/or sloshed when they moved about and the Russkies didn't want to be banned for serial doping. As they are now.
   [See the conspiracy theory that the Russians are behind the Chinese plague to postpone the Tokio Olympics until they can buy, blag or blackmail their way back into contention. Ed.]

bullet The reason for the high o'besity rate in the UK being so HUGE, the Xperts have concluded, is that there are so many fatties around that people feel left out if they don't look like them.

markerThought process
If you can read the phrase 'silver surfer' and start thinking about big waves and nutters on surfboards getting wiped out by them rather than the internet, there is still hope for you.

bulletQ: What's the daftest idea imaginable?
bulletA: Putting a piece of a Martian rock, which was knocked off the Red Planet and landed on Earth as a meteorite, on a NASA rover sent to Mars to repatriate it [as an illegal immigrant? Ed.] has to be well up the looney list.

Far Queue symbol The Bride of Daesh S. Begum remains 'not wanted on voyage' whilst the Supreme Court chews over letting her crawl back here. Not something guaranteed to inspire confidence in the British taxpayer and her potential victims in the UK.

Who ya gonna sue?
bulletQ: If men belonging to ethnic minorities are twice as likely to collect a fine for breaking locko rules, what does that prove?
1. That the police pick on ethnics?
2. That ethnics break locko rules twice as often as whites?
bulletQ: If Afrons are more likely to come to a bad end in police custody than whites, what does that prove?
1. That the police pick on ethnics?
2. That Afrons are more likely to turn violent when someone is trying to restrain them?
bulletA: Depends whether you're trying to confect ethnic bias or doing an objective study of behaviour across different cultures.

bullet None-masked passengers on public transport harassed by police =28,964.
bulletNumber fined £100 = 13.

bullet The upsurge in cases of the Chinese plague has been explained by the fact that less than half of the people in Britain are safe spacing, and less than a third are doing it with family & friends.

markerWe had the technology
Around 45 years ago, NASA stopped fishing astronauts out of the ocean when they returned from space and started launching them to near-Earth orbit in a reuseable shuttle & bringing them back to an air force base on dry land.
   Now, SpaceX has reinvented the old technology and returners from the ISS are ending up in the drink again. Sounds like a lot more development and engineering is needed before the US can think of heading for the Moon and Mars.

writer comment“Bods back on the Moon by 2024? To do what?” A.L.M.

tick symbol Just when everyone was going to sleep as the procession unwound @ Silverstone, Formula One unveiled its new tactic for the rest of the season. Dodgy tyres to make the teams unsure of how long a set will last and shake things up with precautionary pit stops for a new set.

markerHomecation? Great idea!
Going abroad on holiday doesn't seem such a brilliant idea after you've read a story about some guy being attacked by a shark off the Australian coast and another having his arm chewed by a lion in Tanzania.

markerbulletQ: CBD oil—what's that and is it worth buying it on the cheap?
bulletA: As the product is the active ingredient in cannabis sativa, the initials stand for Causes Brain Damage and scoffing it is probably not a brilliant idea.

markerWas it worth the effort?
Isn't it great when you knock pix out at the rate of 5 per week for 6 weeks and one of them is flogged for $5 million? In the case of former Bradforder D. Hockney, who has smoked his way to safety from the Chinese plague, it might have been even greater if it had happened 40 years ago and he'd had a slice of the action.

bullet Quarantine 14, 10, 9 or 8 days? Place your bets!

markerBrilliant if obvious
A Treasury honcho wants to plaster prefab houses all over the place to help out the people who work from home. Typical of a politician not to see that the obvious solution is to convert high street and city centre offices into homes for the staff who want to work there.

Far Queue symbol The alleged collapse of the health service in Hong Kong is being seen as an excuse for the regime to move inconvenient people to hospitals in the rest of China and thence to oblivion.

bullet Not Really news: Can the identities of Mhegan's poisonous posse be kept secret? And is pleading for secrecy just more attention-seeking?

bulletQ: Pubs closed to allow schools to open? What's that about?
bulletA: Teachers are hiding in pubs instead of going to work and need to be smoked out.

markerbullet It is pretty much a hanging offence to notice that the habits and customs of some ethnic minorities encourage the spread of the Chinese plague, which has to be treated as an equal opportunities disease, even if it isn't.

bulletQ: What's a good way to get in to the House of Frauds?
bulletA: Be President Boris's brother. A simple case of BoJo's your bro!

markerAn over-75 pensioner has come up with an interesting way to blag free board & lodging, free meals and free TV—not pay her TV licence fee and be sent to gaol.

markerNo, no, bloody no!
We are assured that spacecraft will be launched from a site in the British Isles within the next few years. Not if the nation's Nimbys have anything to do with it. There is bound to be a gang of them yelling about their 'uman bluddy rights being violated when a site for the first spaceport is picked.

bullet Government rithmetic: Spending £2,000 MILLION on getting customers onto exercise bikes to save the NHS £100 MILLION.

markerWonks in action
The residents of St. Johns, Michigan, are unable to tell a Norwegian flag from a Confederate one, with the result that the operators of the Nordic Pineapple bed & breakfast joint there were trolled with hate emails when they put a Norwegian flag on display at the entrance to announce their Nordic heritage.

markerbulletQ: Is it a criminal offence for a millionaire farmer to repatriate £25K of the British ransom to the EbloodyU as a farming subsidy?
bulletA: No, it's a Good Thing, and attempting to sleaze the entrepreneur with innuendo is unBritish, even if his brother is a government minister.

bullet Tip of the Day: Buy a baseball bat and swing it around to impose Stone Cold Distancing on anyone who gets too close.

markerCollapse of sanity
The government has created a migration points system which makes 660 MILLION people eligible for a visa to come here. Crumbs! Where is President Boris going to put this gang and how much arm-twisting will be needed to get the Xperts to agree to endorse safe spacing of three inches?

marker Someone is hanging on to round pounds worth £120 MILLION. They can still be deposited @ most big banks but good luck with finding one with open branches.

bullet The Scold's Bridle will soon be available on the NHS. Not to prevent vicious wimmin from slagging people off but to be padlocked on to the heads of obese people to stop them from scoffing.

bulletAll change
Free speech in the United States is officially history. Any journalist who doesn't agree with Those People, and dares to admit it, is sacked and trolled & socially murdered into o'blivion.
   Oh, brave new world . . .

Far Queue symbol Those people are trying to ban every instance of the name Rhodes, even if it has no connection with the national benefactor Cecil. Wot next?

marker Xperts in Holland have convinced themselves that face masks damage the fight against the Chinese plague. The face mask industry is aghast.

markerDon’t tell us; we don’t want to kno
Surprise! Only 45% of the British nation knowing what the current locko rules are is not due to a failure to communicate by the government, as Sir Kreepy and his stooges like Captain Underpants would have us believe.
   The customers know it all and they just aren't listening any more. Because customers tend to have a gnat's attention span and there's nothing anyone can do about it.

Far Queue symbol Surprise! Wee Burney is telling porkies about the Scottish rate of infection with the Chinese plague, the UK Statistics Authority almost managed to mumble.

bulletQ: What's a good way for a footballer who's feeling shagged out to get a red card?
bulletA: Coughing on the ref or a member of the other side works a treat.

bullet Today's Conspiracy Theory:The coronavirus plague was imported into Britain by the BBC to kill off everyone of 75 and older to remove a source of embarrassment over the decision by the waxworks in charge to cancel a free TV licence for 75s and over.

Cycle of Outrage
reader comment“People who get bent out of shape over what went on in the past are idiots. Without a time machine, and if they're not running a communist regime, there's nothing they can do to change or rewrite past events.
   “And they can be assured that anyone looking back on them from the same interval in the future will find the conduct of the idiots just as contemptible as the targets in the past of extended rants by today's idiots.

bullet Violent crime is back to pre-lockdown levels as criminals go on the rampage again.

bullet Good news! The Xperts have decided that people using public transport are NOT a major source of spreading the plague; as long as masks are worn and safe spacing is observed.

bulletQ: What can you be sure of if you bomb the Boston Marathon and kill people?
bulletA: That a gang of judges will cancel your well deserved death sentence.

markerFaint praise indeed
Calling the late John Hume the Nelson Mandela of Northern Ireland is a pretty left-handed compliment when you think of the antics the gaoled communist terrorist Mandela, his associates and his family got up to.

Far Queue symbol China is willing to be friends with the UK as long as everything is done on their terms. Who do they think they are? The EbloodyU?
reader comment“China has banned pro-independence campaigning in Hong Kong. Can you imagine how loud the BANG! from Wee Burney would be if President Boris did the same here?” Slurp McGurp

markerDifferent but not better
The NHS of the future will embrace the call centre culture, the Xperts reckon. All contact with doctors will be by phone or videolink, which means that the doctor could be anywhere; even on the Moon or maybe even an AI computer program; and face-to-face meetings will take place only in the private sector if enuff cash changes hands.

bulletQ: What constitutes a really vexatious piece of litigation?
bulletA: Hauling an ex-husband into court on charges of causing actual bodiddly harm and wounding with intent for letting a 17-year-old daughter get an ankle tattoo.

markerJust not bloody trying
The current French Xcuse for letting illegals boat across the Channel to England is that the infiltrators threaten to chuck themselves into the sea. The reply to that should be a Gallic shrug and an invitation to, "Go on, then." But the French always were an awkward bunch.

bullet If schools are allowed to reopen, everyone in the country will get the Chinese plague, some Xperts are claiming now.

bullet Is President Boris planning to lock down London just to upset the cosmetic mayor, Sadgeek K'han't? It would certainly be good for a laugh.

markerMe, Me, Me!
A writer bloke is demanding that Britain's theatres be allowed to open this month. Why? So he can stage a monologe about the rotten time he had with the Chinese plague and blame President Boris for it. Nothing like a healthy dose of self-interest as a motivator.

cross symbol You're getting really desperate for an anti-Brexit story if you start telling people that migrants are busting a gut to get across the Channel before Brexit is finalized. Like that will make any difference.

stakeholder Denmark to host the first three stages of the Tour de France? But not until 2022 instead of next year. What's on for 2023? A visit to Russia, or China? Or maybe even somewhere in South America? Why not!
   This year's event; entirely in France; has been put back 2 months to the end of this month. Something that most people will be unaware of is that the organizers are so worried about the threat from European vampires, that they have appointed a team of stakeholders to provide extra security.
   It is expected that the stakeholders will also leap into action if crowd numbers exceed the permitted limit of 5,000. People who refuse to wear a face mask will also become targets for staking. Snipers in helicopters will be used to take out spectators who run onto the road and attempt to maul the competitors.

bulletQ: If you're a Putinocrat of the financial persuasion on the run from gaol in the UK, where's a good place to hide out?
bulletA: A chateau near Nice would work.

Knee of GraceTortured concept
Is having to pay the BBC for a TV licence really going to drive millions of pensioners into abject poverty, as we are invited to believe? Will they really choose not to eat and not to use energy for heating for the sake of being able to consume the crap on TV these days? Sounds like a very over-egged pudding.

The reason why the NHS track 'n' trace system doesn't work is that people are refusing to take calls from 0300 numbers they don't recognize in case it's a cold call from someone trying to sell them dodgy cavity wall insulation or a similar domestic disaster.

markerNorth Korea is doing a pretty good job of confusing the rest of the world by claiming that the country is free of the Chinese plague and yet locking down large parts of it.

The global warming fraudsters are not going to impress anyone with claims of a world record temperature recorded at Heathrow airport. It's a vast expanse of tarmac and concrete, all soaking up sunshine, so it's bound to get bloody hot.
   In fact, we'd be impressed only if it didn't get hot there.

markerThe lights have gone out—official

Anyone who doesn't support the Bremoan cause and every bit of looney left agitation and confection on offer is now careful to keep their trap shut to avoid cancellation.

Far Queue symbol London's cosmetic mayor, Sadgeek K'han't, is planning to cut police funding by £110 MILLION to create job opportunities for the city's criminal community.

markerNot bloody listening
The locko Xperience is that the public will ignore advice and behave sensibly & with restraint only if they are @ some risk of being fined hundreds or thousands of pounds.

Kerching!The trade unions are refusing to cough up the millions the Labour party needs to pay compenbloodysation to targets of the Corbynista anti-Semitism campaign.
