Interesting thought

New Labour created a Customer Society in which the customers had rights but very little redress. So that railway companies were obliged to provide “customer service” but not obliged to provide trains for letting the customers do what they came to the railways for – to travel.

She’s right-on, so the kid don’t count

Isn’t it strange that a woman would give up a job and deliberately go on benefits in order to blog about the effects of poverty and deprivation on her child? What’s even stranger is that lefty luvvies and Guardianistas aren’t yelling for her to be locked up for felony child endangerment.

You lose. Always.

Don’t you just hate it when Sky TV swindles you by not showing the advertised programme? But I suppose there’s a bit in the small print that no one ever reads saying they’re entitled to take your money but they’re not obliged to give you anything in return.

Lenovo? Well, they got the “no” bit right!

I was thinking about a bigger and better laptop during the week and I had a guy trying to interest me in a Lenovo product. He gave up when I showed him the saga of the Lenovo laptop which I junked back in February. Then I started to wonder. My tech guy mentioned that Lenovo’s tech support phone options had started with an option to get info on a product recall back then. Just out of curiosity, I tried the number the other day and found that Option Zero on the phone menu is still about a product recall. Either the same one or another one. Which doesn’t exactly inspire me to buy anything else from them ever again.

Getting a bit above themselves

According to the self-promotion on the Discovery TV channel, “Nikon sponsors intelligent entertainment programs”. So everything sponsored by anyone else is stoopid? How did that get past the Advertising Standards Authority?

Spot the Difference

Is there that much difference in attitude between Labour’s leaders and the leaders of Al Kaida, IDIS and other Islamist gangs? Both hate everyone who doesn’t agree with them 100%. But (at the moment) Labour just goes in for character assassination and hate campaigns rather than killing people.

What they said, what they meant

The Coalition came to power promising to be the Greenest government we’d ever seen. Unfortunately, what they meant was that they intended to let developers build all over the Green Belt rather than make them fill up Brownfield sites first.

Could Formula One have survived had Hamilton not won the title?

The latest from the rumour mill is that the F1 bosses had a lot of words with their opposite numbers at the Mercedes team and Rosberg was told that his time would come later. Hence his shaky start to the Bahrain Grand Prix, which let Hamilton zoom off into the distance, and his engine and brake problems, which dropped him down the order enough to ensure that Hamilton would take the title even if he failed to finish the race.
   Rumour has it that Rosberg was told that the high life would end very abruptly if the public turned their backs on F1, and he saw the sense of making an investment for the future. And rumour also has it that the chump who came up with the terminally stupid idea of double points for the last race of the season is for the chop.

Ed Milipede has come up with a plan to fix the damage caused by his sacked attorney general substitute’s sneering at a supporter of England’s football team. Every candidate for next year’s general election will be required to get a visible Cross of St. George tattoo, and all campaigning will be done from white vans rather than battle buses.

Lies, damn lies and Red Ed Milipede

When asked what he thinks when he sees a white van parked outside a house, Red Ed would like us to believe its ‘Respect’. Really? Not: ‘I hope he’s not parked on the pavement, blocking it’ or even: ‘There’s a white van’ or even no reaction at all because it’s just a white van and there are lots of them around.
    Red Ed’s ludicrous lie confirms that he’s just another of Labour’s professional lefty luvvies, who have no contact with the real world and no concept of what happens in it.

On the job training

Police officers who have been convicted of a criminal offence are now entitled to accelerated promotion on account of having acquired relevant experience of crime.

Here’s a thing!

2% of Scots believe in Red Ed but 24% of them believe in Nessie, the Loch Ness monster.

Covering the rear end

The Metropolitan Police “service” has commissioned a study of the available types of buttock armour. It seems that senior officers are worried that female (or even male) staff who have had a buttock implant might sue if some drunk gives them a hefty kick up the bum and the implant explodes.

More Red Ed idiocy

Mr. Milipede would have us believe that the super-rich pay no tax at all, and he’s going to solve all the debt problems created by the last Labour government (of which he was the member for global warming swindles) by making their pips squeak. And yet, figures from HMRC show that the top 3,000 people contribute 4.2% of the annual income tax revenue while the lowest-paid nine million taxpayers contribute less than 4% of the total. And Ed doesn’t have a single word to say about a future Labour government spending taxpayers’ money wisely and looking after its mates less.

Cloth Ears!

Red Ed Milipede is ready to leave the country!!! As you were, what he actually said was “lead”.

Normal service to be resumed shortly

There has been a death in the family, hence not much going on here.

Yes, Smoke & Mirrors.

So much for Dave's "no way!" to the EU's demand for £1.7 billion, which has been reduced to £850 million after rebates and discounts were applied. It's all going to be paid next year. And wasted by the Eurocrats, of course -- whatever part isn't not stolen, of course.

Historical replay

The alleged putsch launched by Labour back-benchers to oust Red Ed Milipede seems to have had about as much success as the one launched by a certain Mr. Hitler and his mates in the 1920s, when they wanted to overthrow the Bavarian government.

Corrupting the world

The Independent Commission on Aid Impact has found that British aid to foreign countries is making corruption worse in many parts of the world. Why? Because politicians like D. Cameron and G. “Africa is my passion” Brown just throw British taxpayers’ money around to make themselves feel good and to try to buy votes. They have no regard for where the money is going or into whose pockets it goes. This shameful lack of oversight is deeply ingrained and institutionalized. As long as the Overseas Aid mob can swan around the world on fancy salaries and expenses, and go on their junkets, they’re not bothered about crooks ending up with bank accounts stuffed with our cash.
