I normally watch the antics of so-called Environmental Activists and Protesters with detachment, and my only real concern is that no-one on their targets is injured by the antics of the Anti’s, as it were; but I wonder if Greenpeace could be billed for the police overtime?

Chris Elliott on the ‘Guardian’s’ lexicon: In The God of Small Things, Arundhati Roy wrote: “That’s what careless words do. They make people love you a little less.” That is a view shared by many Guardian readers. Looking at the comments some days, it’s hard to see how the love for the ‘Guardian’ could go any lower! But what, specifically, vexes the CiF commentariat? The budget threw up a different…

This whole drama is ridiculous

So points out Shane Warne and there are four other examples of narrative this morning below that. Narrative 1 Shane Warne joined other men of note [so far no females in the public sphere, who are on the whole narrative-driven, that is feminists]. For those not up to speed, football fans at every AFL club [downunder] have been, for the whole season, booing a provocative aboriginal activist who plays the race card and…

Oh, the sheer terror of it all! The black headlines flood onto the pages and the screens, all stating one thing only; ‘How cruel, how terrible, how unfeeling; and on, and on, ad infinitum’. A  cross-section of those headlines read: ‘Global anger reaches Minnesota’, ‘Justice for Cecil’, and  ‘The hunter is hunted’; as well as ‘Dentist who killed Cecil regrets his actions!’ The target of all this wrath? Some monstrously-inhuman…

Those naughty Lordies

Dave is busy stacking the Lords, one wonders if it was because the Lords struck back in late 2014: Commenting, Lord Harrison, Chair of the Committee, said: “This Committee has repeatedly stressed that the EU budget process is at breaking point. The on-off negotiations over recent weeks demonstrate once more that root and branch reform of the process is urgently needed. We want to get to the bottom of the…

After a decade-long legal fight with three animal welfare charities over her mother’s decision to cut her out of any inheritance, a poverty-stricken daughter has finally been awarded £164,000 by senior judges. The ruling by the court of appeal is further evidence that wills deemed to be unreasonable can be overturned or varied by the courts. Want to cut that wastrel son or daughter out of your will?

By Wiggia: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-33676308 The whole police funding procedure is far too complicated and dates back to the time when police authorities were around and had a say in how the funding would be gathered from the local community. That has gone but not the rest of the arcane procedure. Despite cuts to funding the precept in local council tax has risen here for instance every year despite a council tax freeze…

Now that’s Education…..Black Africa Style!

Now that’s Education…..Black Africa Style!

The schoolkids in the City of Port Elizabeth are said to be rioting over the standards of education in the schools. Nonsense, they seem to have a real grip on the fundamentals (click on thumbnails) of various disciplines, such as:- Newtons First Law,….. which states that every object will remain at rest or in uniform motion until compelled to change by an outside force     Newtons Second Law…… Acceleration…

Being a fairly rational soul, I just cannot fathom the reality which certain people, nearly all of whom are politicians or high-profile so-called sporting celebrities, seem to wish to reside in. Times without number, we see men and women in high office or public standing, brought low as a direct result of truly foolish, usually sexual but not always, behaviour. Is it simply hubris, that strange sensation which tells them…

The “victim” is the real racist

More than that, they act…
