      Popular misconceptions for every occassion says:

      Further to this there is no actual mention of “three” kings or magi as they are known in the text.Their number is unknown and the “three” appears to have come from the number of gifts which they brought.

      They did not visit the stable as again the text states that they visited the child some time after his birth, a time period of anything up to two years may have elapsed since herod decreed all children under 2 years should be killed on learning of the infants birth.

      Your holiness, you should bear in mind however that Guido more than likely sees him as ‘stiff’ competition and bitterly resents his hundreds of thousands of leaks. Guido allegedly gets to know about doses of clap at the HoP so that’s OK.

      Doh, the Yanks are the ones who are in the cables! I don’t think they had much of a choice whether the media turned this story into a mega story or not.

        You're obviously in a minority of one here says:

        You’ve obviously fail to appreciate that since “Barry” became Pres that the public’s anti-American sentiment in the UK has been growing helped by his administrations obviously hostile attitude to the UK and his scapegoating of BP to save his own arse and deflect criticism from the US Companies involved and the leaked cables showing the USA true feelings towards the UK.

        Sir William Waad says:

        The problem arose because the Americans chose to publicise confidential diplomatic briefings on a database to which 3 million people has access. This was a very foolish thing to do and a betrayal of their own diplomats.

    • 30
      Cynic says:

      Dont be silly. They are diverting attention from a system that let a mad young man access to not only read but copy their most secret of databases. Who on earth set up this system and designed its security? Who allowed copying of ANY data onto CDs.

      The Chief of Staff and Secretary of State fro Defense should be fired

      The real story is what a shambles US security really is

        As i posted last night you can still have your porn if you sign up to it
        once you have done this the government will be able to monitor no only how much and what type of porn you watch
        but every site you visit will be recorded
        wether it is porn political radical extreamist it will all be logged
        we know they already do this with mobile phones and texts
        so this is just a communications trap for the state !

      Another impending public holiday, another set of ‘pre-emptive’ terrorist arrests.

      What are the odds that after a decent interval (and on a day with other, major news to distract) that all of the suspects will be released without charge, except for the inevitable face-saving ‘immigration offences’?

      IMO it’s political theatre, the worst kind of ‘being seen to do something’ that I associated with NuLab. Unfortunately the same attitude appears to persist under Theresa May too…

    Piers Corbyn: Prepare for new Ice Age says:

    Piers Corbyn. You have all heard of him. The maverick weather forecaster who actually manages to get some weather forecasts right occasionally (has anyone been reading the BBC/Met Office crap recently?).

    Well here is what he says about global warming: “Whatever may have seemed plausible 10 years ago Global Warming is over and there is no evidence that CO2 ever was, is or will be a driver of world temperatures or Climate Change – indeed evidence is the relationship is more the other way around:-”

    And unfortunately for all of us, here is Piers Corbyn’s 100 year forecast:

    Enjoy, and wrap up warm!

          The Beeb have already got that one covered…on a radio phone in the other day they were trying to suggest that global warming had somehow shifted the flow of the gulfstream away from our shores….leading to arctic conditions…

        • 91
          Sir William Waad says:

          It’s faith-based. It doesn’t need evidence. What’s more, it’s exceptionally mild in parts of Greenland, and:

          High temperatures = climate

          Low temperatures = weather

    • 130
      Another Engineer says:

      Piers Corbyn likes to feed the press sensationalist stories and then claims they were “verified” afterwards. Generally his forecasts are nonsense, and when they’re not, they are suspiciously close to the long range weather models that he so derides.

      What is worse is that people remember the Express stories (for that is where you will find his pronouncements) but then blame the Met Office when it turns out to be bunk.

      If you are looking for science, you are looking in the wrong place.

      Most weather forecasters don’t have an agenda, they’re too busy trying to predict whether you’ll get snow tomorrow. Mostly successfully.

      • 136
        Frosty says:

        Er, the BBC/Met Office haven’t ONCE managed to accurately predict snow for my area (Devon) over the past few weeks.

        If we are lucky the BBC updates its website predicting snow about an hour before it falls, otherwise it has been predicting rain or sunshine all the way.

        The best weather forecasts we have seen recently have been accuweather.com, but even they have underestimated the amount of snow and depth of temperatures we have experienced.

        Major Eyeswater says:

        Then read the latest from the Huhnatic:

          Bamber Cote de Gascogne says:

          as a geologist I make my living out of climate change, it is as old as the Earth. indeed if we did not have it we would not be contributing and reading order-order. consider a cliff section: one stratum is limestone, above it is an abrupt sandstone interface layer, then siltstone and shale. each with its own unique climatic and environmental paleo-conditions. we have always had, and always will have climate change. the anthropogenic arguement is not proven. the catastrophy is the economic consequence of turning to low-carbon living.
          however the scary ‘man made global warming due to CO2 emission’ arguement is great for the nuclear lobby.. ..

    Lаbоur’ѕ Вlоаtеd Ѕtаtе Juѕt Kеерѕ Gеttіng Fаttеr аnd Ѕсаrіеr Undеr СоnDеmѕ

    Yеѕtеrdаy, Ed Vaizey announced that he would be getting ISP’s together to force them to censor legal content ― threatening that the Government would bring in new laws if they did not comply:

    “I’m hoping they will get their acts together so we don’t have to legislate, but we are keeping an eye on the situation and we will have a new communications bill in the next couple of years.”

    Who is driving this, though?

    Today listeners may have been wondering who the fucking loon on the radio was this morning who claimed that:

    “We’ve got an awful lot of academics, first of all, who can say what’s healthy and what isn’t healthy…”

    Her name is Miranda Suit.

    Any doubt over whether the proposals for State censorship that she shares with the Tory Party (under the guise of protecting children) are the thin end of a batty, fundamentalist, fascist, zealous wedge are rapidly eased with a glance at her biography on the Christian Peoples [sic] Alliance website:

    “…pornography must be outlawed so that it cannot undermine marriage and the dignity of women and encourage sex crime. All schools should teach Christian values.”

    Miranda works as Director of the Soup Kitchen at the American Church in London. She has 4 children who are half Ugandan…

    So the Tories are now taking their policy lead from the American Church in London

      I wish they would give the highways, rail and airport people some cocaine, so that they could get the feeling that they could achieve something.

        Isembard Kingdom Brunel didn’t fuck about with platitudes and excuses he just went out and did it, and the irony is we had a lot better and faster and more efficient railway system under steam 150 years ago than we have got now.

          I am rather fond of steam. I let it off quite frequently. Brunel was a genius. We need a few thousand like him right now. Steam cars that burn old wellies and trainers and government bumph about 5 a day which ( out of 10 pensioners cannot afford, would be nice…
          Oh for an outbreak of commonsense.
          I would rather die of flying pig flu than have the flu jab.

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”



Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
