    A listner to Five Live’s Wake up to Money tweated this in yesterday morning. Was that Mr. Leach or has he borrowed the idea?

    The British public says:

    Demolishing Birmingham sounds like a very good idea. Rebuilding it somewhere else, doesn’t.

    “We might as well knockdown Londonistan and build it twenty minutes closer to Islamabad and do it for less than £50bn.”

      The British public says:

      That’s a very good idea – it would be under the North Sea, and pretty close to the wreck of the USS Richard Montgomery, too.

    It is statements like this from so called economists or politicians (statesmen to them), that make us wonder if our education system is a major barrier to achieving wisdom.

    A question for you. As the HS2 is all part of the EU’s Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T) Policy, thus allowing foreigners to dictate what we must have on our land-whether we like it or not, or can afford it or not-(How many £trillions are we in debt already?) What about the rest of what is in TEN-T? Do we pay to give sovereignty over our skies for the EU’s Single European Sky? (Air Traffic Control) And sadly, do we also give Sovereignty(authority) over our Ports and Seas (12 mile limit) so that EU ships can come and Go as they please? Hmmmmph! There’s a thought, will our ships be classed as EU Ships too?

    Mock The Week http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b03b3h9y/Mock_the_Week_Series_12_Episode_8/
    from 22:00

    Trust a politician to steal a good line. Question is, from whom was the Mock The Week line by Gary Delaney lifted?

    Ah! Plagiarism …..

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
