    Ctesibius says:

    I always accepted that the pointlessness of ‘Rich and Mark’ was part of charm of the Guido experience, but I think the joke has reached its end-point now.

    There’s a sort of post-modern irony in laughing at a cartoon that is supposed to be funny, but which isn’t. But repeating the experience week after week after week and eventually it dawns that the irony is perhaps no longer ironic, and that ‘modern’ is no longer ‘modern’.

    The one positive is that this cartoon makes starting work a bit more alluring.

    MOST Brits admit to having no idea about politics.

    A poll by TV channel Gold of 2,000 adults found 62% rate their political knowledge as average to poor.

    One in 10 do not know what number Downing Street the PM lives at and 18% that William Hague is Foreign Secretary.

    BREAKING NEWS Bank of England says:

    For several years the USA have promised budget deficit reductions but the deficit over the last 20 years has now ballooned to a massive 16 trillion dollars.

    As a result of the “fiscal cliff” settlement we think it highly likely that the deficit will increase during the next 12 months .

    THe Bank has a duty to protect sterling holders and investors and this duty is independent of Government. To achieve this end from noon today The Bank will insist that paper dollars are henceforth covered by a deposit of 0.075 grams of Gold .

    Just a thought on the referendum and Britain’s current membership of the EU. Has anybody else noticed the steady build up of scare mongering via all branches of the media about the ‘dire political, social and economic consequences’, of leaving the EU under the present ‘arrangements’? It is interesting to see, who has been crawling out from under their metaphorical stones, to try to frighten the British people, in pursuit of their own interests or misguided ideologies.
