        Software updates cursed by evil leprechaun

        A WICKED leprechaun has cursed all of mankind’s software updates to fail dismally.

        After Apple’s iOS 7 launch misfired, it emerged that all attempts to release new versions of software are subject to a supernatural curse.

        Computer folklorist Emma Bradford said: “There was once a wicked leprechaun called Seamus, who worked as a programmer making ZX Spectrum games in the 80s.

        “However he was sacked for creating a perverted game called Dirty Princess.

        “The little man retaliated by putting a curse on mankind that no software could be ever be updated without it turning into a massive balls up.

        “And so it came to pass.”

    *Both presenter’s iPads and the BBC in general.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
