See Guido’s Column in the Daily Star Sunday

Tories profiting from the Olympics, the self-serving sole parliamentary reform MPs have voted for, how Ed Miliband buttered up Charles Moore and the touching tale of a cross-party handshake.

Last Sunday we suggested the reshuffling of LibDems out of the Ministry of Defence and Foreign Office could presage military action in Iran. Today, a week later, the Mail on Sunday catches up and says the same.

Don’t miss today’s Daily Star Sunday. Buy it!

      Your Friendly Neighbourhood War Memories Service says:

      You forgot about hearth/stove logs, Mr Cat. You’re probably not old enough to remember, but their use was encouraged during the War as a way of keeping coal and wood supplies more readily available for defence-industry use by cutting down on the need for those products by the civilian population. It was one of those “doing your part for the war effort” feelgood ideas that had SOME practical application, to be sure, but were more symbolic than anything, in terms of the actual quantities of materials saved. But, of course, “Every little bit helps!”

          You jest, Mr Cat, but this actually is a fairly common practice in the living-away-from-the-grid community (think back to Tom and Barbara Good), whether they be airy-fa*iry neo-hippies or tinfoil-hat bomb-shelter types. People looking to economise in this day and age of “austerity” have been looking into such practices as well. If you Google it, you will find page after page of articles on the subject. One thing they all have in common is that they say that these “logs” extend, but do not replace, one’s supply of firewood. So in fact, there is more of a similarity with sex than perhaps you realised: For a fireplace, or for sex– in both instances you have to have “the wood,” else not much heat will be generated, at least not from the male standpoint anyway.

          Schrodinger, Erwin 1887-1961 Austrian physicist and Nobel Prize winner

          Born in Nienna,he was educated at Vienna University. From 1920 he was professor at Stuttgart (1920), Jena (1920-21),Breslau (1921) and Zurich (1921-27). He succedded MAX PLANCK as professor of physicsat the University of Berlin before returning to Austria as professor at Graz University (1936-38). After the Anschluss, he fled to Dublin where he worked at the Institute for Advanced Studies (1938-56), then returned to Austria as emeritus professor at Vienna University. Inspired by LOUIS-VICTOR DE BROGULIE’s proposal of wave-particle duality, Schrodinger originated the science of wave mechanics as part of the quantum theory with his celebrated equation. P A M DIRAC soon developed a more complete theory of quantum mechanics from their foundations, and for this work Schrodinger and Dorac shared the Nobel Prize in physics. Schrodinger wrote “What is life?” (1946) and “Science and Man” (1958)

For those who have never heard of him he was Shelley’s literary executor and later organised the early steamship and telegraph service to India. He was also an accomplished parodist who burned his correspondence before he died so only his published works are left.

          • It is amazing to consider that the left don’t have a figure like Irving. In fact, I know of no figure quite like him from any political quarter.

            He has an unparalleled knowledge of the Third Reich. Even his greatest detractors, of which I count myself as an ungreat one, would admit that. To go with it, he has an excellent education so he can knit his specialist knowledge into a very enticing general narrative. If that were not enough, he is a very good and often amusing presenter (if only the subject matter were not so horrendous.). That much I must allow him. It certainly takes in many weaker brained folks who are charmed into thinking he must be right by the sheer force of his personality.

            But he is wrong. Completely and absolutely wrong. His arguments are not that difficult to deconstruct to the point where they veer away from any sane interpretation. So one can only come to the conclusion that he is barking mad. Engagingly, pellucidly and prima facie believably so but still completely off his trolley.

            Now come to think of it – there was that Tony Blair fellow…

      It’s an open and shut case – Guilty. And he did not have ‘Ministerial immunity from prosecution “At the time “”THE ACT”” was committed’ – GUILTY.

      And he should along with Vicky P – who ‘let the cat out of the bag’ in her rage (doesn’t matter – she let it out) go to prison. A real Prison not a softy prison like what the expenses guilty or J Archer went to.

      A World On The Verge Of War?

      Here is a summary of where the world stands:

      •Unable to reach a compromise over the weekend, South Africa is now in an all out labor strike, with the police again firing rubber bullets at miners with lethal escalation guaranteed
      •Back from vacation, the once again penniless citizens of Spain, Greece, and Portugal have resumed protesting austerity
      •US embassies attacked, in many cases with numerous casualties, in Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, Sudan, Lebanon, India, Balgadesh, Indonesia, and others.
      •Japan “appropriating” China-contested islands provoking a firestorm of retaliation including demands for “war with Japan”
      •The Japanese ambassador to China dying mysteriously
      •Netanyahu telling Meet the Press Iran will have a nuke in six-seven months and must be stopped beforehand
      •Warships from more than 25 countries, including the United States, Britain, France, Saudi Arabia and the UAE, launching a military exercise in the Straits of Hormuz
      •A third US aircraft – the CVN-74 Stennis – carrier is en route to Iran with an ETA of about 10 days
      •And finally, a potential catalyst to light this whole mess on fire, Iran’s Revolutionary Guard announcing that its troops are now on the ground in Syria.

    “Turning to Mr Osborne, Sir John said: “Well, firstly, it would be very surprising if the Chancellor wasn’t unpopular. The Chancellor has to do unpopular things.

    “But I think it’s worth making the point that David Cameron, George Osborne and Nick Clegg aren’t imposing these cuts out of some malign wish to hurt people.

    “They’re imposing these cuts because the last government left the cupboard bare. The money was gone, the gold was gone. They had no choice but to take tough medicine, and I think people need to understand that is why they are doing it.”

    Well said Sir John in clear language that even a tribal socialist could or should be able to understand – or even, dare I say it, readers of the Guardian!

    Here’s the question though………..Why can’t Cameron & Co be so clear and direct?

      Major was the last prime minister who was discernibly human. He had been catapulted into the job more or less by accident and, unlike his three successors, had not had the humanity burnt out of him by the savage race to the top of the greasy pole.

      I think that history will be kind to him. He may not be remembered as great, but he will be rated as perfectly sound, and his capers with Edwina Currie seen as an endearing foible.

      Worth noting, too, that he prefixed his remarks by saying, ‘Since I’m no longer in politics, I can say something that perhaps as a politician I wouldn’t.’ Which you would have expected to precede a devastating attack. Instead, he went on to generously defend the most unpopular politician in the country.

        Agreed but is one political ‘fault’ was to concentrate all of his efforts on bringing an end to the troubles in Northern Ireland – History will show that he played a blinder on NI yet, to date, he still gets little credit.
