        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.”

    Just shows what a bloody waste of time and money they are*.

    But hey, it’s only the licence fee payers’ money.

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

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.”
