Trigger warning

Remember: whatever you say and whenever you pass an opinion, there will always be some scumbag ready and willing to drive him- or herself into a state of synthetic outrage because he/she has detected some form of “ism”.

Over the top

If God is such a good guy, why does she condemn people to burn in Hell for all eternity? Does God have no sense of justice and proportionality?

Inexpertise Rules! Not OK.

That’s the thing about political mathematics; everyone thinks he’s an expert, even when he trots out the equivalent of 1 + 1 = 3.142.
    “Corbyn is a waste of space,” someone says. So that means he thinks the sun shines out of Dave’s nether regions? Crude, simplistic and totally defective reasoning.
    Corbyn being a waste of space doesn’t rule out Dave also being a waste of space. Or Dave being a waste of space only some of the time.
    “Corbyn is a waste of space” is 100% about Corbyn and 0% about anyone else. But try telling that to an “expert” and see how far you get.

Horse-hockey by any other name would smell as ripe

A bunch of hissy Liberal biches in the House of Frauds broke the rules to cause trouble because they got wiped out at the general election. Which made J. Corbyn’s empty posturing at the next Questions to the Prime Minister look like just that – empty posturing. And the worst thing about it is that the taxpayer is paying him to do it.

What’s the point?

This is a picture of the baby-faced hacker, who has been busted for invading TalkTalk, the Daily Mail proclaimed on its front page today. But his appearance has been altered to protect his identity.
   But if the photo doesn’t look like the kid, what’s the point of printing it?

Nothing out of nothing

“Sustainably sourced” vegetable oil. Does that actually mean anything? A farmer plants a crop, which is harvested and turned into vegetable oil and the land is replanted. What’s the big deal about that? It’s something human beans have been doing for tens of thousands of years.

Cheats usually prosper

The MotoGP fans here didn’t want Lorenzo to take over the title from Marc Marquez; until yesterday. They still don’t believe Rossi should have been allowed to finish the race after his Schumacher moment. They think he should have been black-flagged forthwith. But it would take a race director with a bit of backbone to do that as a warning to anyone else who feels like cheating.

Another mad scramble

You’d think people who organize sports would be a bit more considerate. The poor old American football and Grand Prix fans at the Mansion were having to devote one eye each to their favourite viewing in the early evening. And then, later on, it was America’s NFL on one TV and Canada’s equivalent on another. Luckily, nothing significant happens simultaneously very often and the main annoyance is adverts on both channels.

All talk, just cowboys

No wonder TalkTalk keeps winning wooden spoons for having the world’s worst customer service. Their casual attitude to data protection comes as no surprise. And just as the banksters who ran the big banks into the ground recklessly got away with it, I suppose we can expect the gang running TalkTalk to avoid being prosecuted for criminal recklessness.

Mrs. Cooper-Balls is now developing hearing problems when asked when she will deliver on her promise to house refugees in her spare bedrooms. But she is a politician, after all, so no one expected that much of her.

Just meaningless noise

What is the point of the apologists for the referee who gave the Scottish rugby team a bloody nose? They are obviously just the sort of people who like the sound of their own voice. After all, no matter how much they squawk, they’re never ever going to get people to love refs.

Pardon us if we laugh

Scotland’s unfortunate exit from the rugby world cup, courtesy of an incompetent ref., put a few smiles on English faces. It’s cruel to mock the afflicted but the relentless, almost sociopathic anti-English propaganda and hatred of Scottish sports fans and the supporters of the Gnats does tend to harden hearts.

Now say it like you mean it

Labour’s odious deputy leader Tommo Watson has made his ritual apology for sleazing Lord Brittan. And now we have a copper poking his nose out of the woodwork to say he thought the police were embarking on a baseless witch hunt when Watson was making his accusations.
    Pity he didn’t speak up sooner, when it mattered. And it’s an even greater pity that his bosses at the Met are so useless and tried to prevent even this belated exposure of their uselessness.

Another swindle

EU energy rating tests on vacuum cleaners are performed when the device is switched on but not sucking up any dust. Which is rather typical of the EU: the rating is cosmetic and meaningless by design, and nothing to do with the real world.

Interstitially . . .

In response to the daft advert:
One of these kids might be the next Lizzy Borden, Bloody Mary, Beast of Belsen, Myra Hindley, Harridan Harperson or Camilla Batmanthingy. But one thing we can be sure off, by the time she does grow up, no one will remember that Windows 10 ever existed.

Too much politics in the Law

We’ve had judges and lawyers from around the world gathering in London to look for ways to make disbelief in the Great Global Warming Snake Oil illegal. Now, the British “legal community”; mainly the members making money out of illegal immigrants and undeportable criminals; is presuming to order the government to let in more economic migrants. It would be nice to see those privileged parasites showing concern for the quality of life in our country, but that’s not the way the money flows.

Stamina is all you need

Sports fanatics at the Mansion were having a real feast yesterday: two Canadian football matches followed by three MotoGP events with a Grand Prix either run simultaneously or afterwards, then the evening’s NFL Sunday on Sky TV.

It’s not complicated

Labour’s apologists don’t know the difference between rattled and disgusted. For their information, Dave the Leader pointing out that J. Corbyn hates Britain and he’s the terrorist’s best buddy is down to disgust, not being rattled.

Meanwhile, behind the spin

The Blessed Jeremy Corbyn says he wants a new, kinder form of politics. And then he turns up at protest rallies near Tory events to encourage his supporters to engage in spitting and egg-throwing contests to impress him with their dedication to the cause. Clearly, his statement has been misinterpreted. When you realize that Kinder is German for children, it becomes clear that what he's actually after is Kinderpolitik – more childish politics.

False advertising

When did David Mellor, who became a political laughing stock, evolve into a Tory grandee? And why is he demanding a police investigation into the people who smeared politicians with VIP sex abuse claims? Given the level of competence shown in the likes of Operation Midland, the police are the last people who should be investigating anything. Especially all that “credible and true” crap from Det. Supt. K. McDonald.

Total Sky Garbage

Don’t you just hate the fundamental dishonesty involved when Sky adverts tell us that they have things you can “buy and keep”? As opposed to what? Buy and not keep? Everyone knows that “and keep” is an intrinsic part of “buy”, so Sky telling us that this is an addition to “buy” is Sky pretending that we are getting something more than just “buy” when we’re not. And that is dishonest, IMNSHO.

What a sporting weekend it’s been for some. All four CFL matches as 2 “action from” and 2 live matches on Saturday into Sunday, then FOUR NFL matches on Sunday going into Monday. Then there’s still Monday and Thursday night NFL action during this week, not to mention FIVE CFL matches in addition. You certainly need stamina to be a gridiron fan!

Muddle-headed as well as looney

J. Corbyn, if prime minister, would have no problem with blowing £100,000,000,000 on a replacement for Trident but he would never, ever push the button, and he would let the world know that he has a nuclear deterrent which doesn’t.
