Scout Girl

Scout Girl

It has become something of a fetish for the easily pleased media. A moment captured on a mobile device, a frozen fraction of a second that quickly becomes viral and acquires the term “iconic”. The latest in this series is the “scout girl”, a photograph of a Czech girl scout engaging in what looks like an animated discussion with a member of a right-wing protest group in the Moravian city of Brno.

A Large Rat

A Large Rat

Following yesterday’s events and the bombing of a Syrian airbase by the United States, I have have to say something. This morning, in between listening to the number codes and scratchy voices on the long wave radio channel, I heard this. Read the rest of this entry »

Cockeyed Numbers

Cockeyed Numbers

I have been switching between the BBC, Sky News and Russia Today to try and get a balanced perspective over what is going on in Syria. The truth is, nobody really knows what is going on. Irrespective of the different political perspectives we all may have, there are a couple of questions I am sure many people would like to ask the western leaders hell bent on executing a “regime change”. These are: Read the rest of this entry »

Reaping the Whirlwind

Reaping the Whirlwind

It started with scuffles in Calais, and has mushroomed into the pictures beamed all around the world of what looks like the entire population of the Middle East, Afghanistan and sub-Saharan Africa making their way to the West via Budapest’s central station. It is like some disaster movie, something that needs Roland Emmerich to turn up and polish up the final product. Read the rest of this entry »

Sainsbury’s: Shame on you.

Sainsbury's: Shame on you.

OK, it has been a while since I last posted… Real work, other projects on the go, no time, blah blah blah. Also, just too many interesting news stories, which has this curious affect of making one not want to say anything at all. I have for example been tempted to say something about the situation in Syria, and stop short for fear that it will turn into an encyclopaedic rant. Read the rest of this entry »

Is this Britain?

Is this Britain?

This country is being turned inside out. From those in the establishment being caught up in the fallout following the scandal surrounding the odious Jimmy Savile and his army of degenerate cohorts through to almost daily tales of the underclass running riot in the inner cities, one cannot get away from the rising stench. Crooked parliamentarians, low-level crime, police officers tasering elderly blind men. Read the rest of this entry »

Saluting Shenanigans

Saluting Shenanigans

So, the much-publicised trial of Norwegian mass-killer Anders Behring Breivik has finally started – and with it the line-by-line commentary from a number of online resources. I will no doubt make some sort of comment on the trial at some point, but will try and keep my distance as I do feel there is little to be said beyond stating the obvious fact that the man’s Jarlsberg has clearly slipped off its cracker.

Silly Sausages

Silly Sausages

Just a short one today.

The growth of online journalism has seen a massive increase in the number of articles out there, and with it the number of journalists, commentators and contributors. Some of it is excellent, some of it utterly pointless – for this, just check out the Daily Mail’s infamous sidebar of shame – and some of it downright awful. Read the rest of this entry »

Up in flames…

Up in flames...

OK, so Government minister Francis Maude probably put his foot in it a wee bit when he took it upon himself to warn the public about the impending tanker drivers’ strike – and suggesting that we fill a jerrycan or two with spare fuel. Unlike the morons in the Labour Party, I took this to be little more than a simple heads-up Read the rest of this entry »

Bashing Bashar

Bashing Bashar

The latest news: Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad has been downloading somewhat dubious songs from iTunes, and his wife Asma has bought some furniture and been eyeing up some Christian Louboutins. There, children, is the best the Western media can do in its new-found crusade for freedom, democracy, and the utterly idiotic. Read the rest of this entry »
