    Following an emergency Cobra meeting this lunchtime, The Government have placed Prime Minister David Cameron on gardening leave. The Government expects to make further announcements about this over the course of the weekend.

      Bad timing. The gardens are under snow, so he’ll come bouncing back into Number 10 saying he might as well do some governing until the weather picks up.

          Cameron seems to be clueless as to what is happening in Algeria. Might be he is watching BBC and Sky for more information.

    So europe is sending troops to Mali in a training role……. since when did the EU have an army to send…….. or is there something Dave is not telling us about the close cooperation deal he’s been so proud of ?

    Lord Mooncrater says:

    The EU won’t be sending troops? Err, the EU do not have armed forces. The EU is a bunch of desk – bound clowns scamming money from people that work for a living – esp. in the UK.

    Please enjoy the snow as another drought (and hose-pipe ban) may be along shortly so as the Global warming nut-jobs can get off on another FICTIOUS scare story – Be “FOREVER FEARFUL” – It may / might /could / possibly be the END OF THE WORLD…

      Ever noticed how the US weather forecasts for Europe tend to be much more accurate than the local drivel… :-)

      You should know by now that rain or snow and other cold spells of 2 days are due to climate change. Any temperature over 70F for 3 hours is due to global warming.

    EU Watch says:

    In case no one has noticed, the Grand social contract that the EU offered is dead:

    http://www.marketwatch.com/story/bid-adieu-to-europes-grand-social-contract-2013-01-18?mod=MKTW_ALL&link=sfmw

    This is quite significant as social contracts are quite important for democratic entities to legitimize the binding with the people.

    Security is also not guaranteed, especially if one considers that UN 2085 / Mal! cannot be met by the EU as it currently stands. The situation there is still far from resolved, the only benefit so far is that only French troops are on the ground (under somewhat dubious international legal conditions) and Bamanko has not yet fallen.

    Hollande’s call for ‘ l’union sacrée’ – likely in order to get cross party domestic consensus for intervention – is hardly in line with EU thinking…

    Lord Jensen Interceptor says:

    You have to admire how Mr Kenny, the Irish PM, will manage running guns for the IRA, fucking children for the fenian church and promoting the export of young Irish folk elsewhere.

    A Nobel peace prize surely awaits.

    Sign this petition to restrict Bulgarian and Romanians from entering the UK:

    Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD aoiseach Enda Kenny TD says:

    I would like to say that since I am to become Big Paddy of the EU I will promise to gurantee horse meat for all members of EU and a stop to the discrimination of gay/bisexual leprechauns also them Bastards in Ulster will be taxed to the hilt.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
