The Accidental Journalist

Balpreet Kaur, a religiously bearded Sikh female student at Ohio State University, was minding her own business at an airport when some passer-by noted her somewhat strange appearance – yes, admit it, we’ve all laughed at the bearded lady jokes – and rather than just having a silent chuckle and getting on with his life decided to post it on the social media site Reddit.

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.

Sophistry Corner: Get me a bucket.

Sophistry Corner: Get me a bucket.

Earlier this week I didn’t feel too well after having a Sainsbury’s chicken and bacon sandwich – I am now convinced that they buy their chicken from one of those “dodgy geezers” featured on those formulaic investigative documentaries – but a quick glance at the Guardian this morning has got me reaching for the proverbial sick bucket once again.

State persecution?

State persecution?

It has been a while since my last blog. A good while. I cannot think of any specific reason as even with my busy I have always been able to find a spare five minutes here and there, but hey.

This article in The Guardian however did stick in my craw – yet another wormy diatribe from an ivory tower dweller about our good old friends the Romany people and the rather unfortunate news that the French government has finally started to crack down on their itinerant and criminal behaviour. So Sarko and Co. have finally woken up and realised that something needs to be done – resulting in the usual hysterical bleating from the usual circle of do-gooder scribblers.

Privileged.

Privileged.

The folks at the Guardian really are so sad that it’s laughable. Having ditched the ailing Labour Party at the fag end of election campaign after the infamous “Bigotgate”, they threw in their lot with the Liberal Democrats and its charismatic if slightly slippery leader Nick Clegg. With Clegg and the Lib Dems having taken the common sense action by joining a Conservative-led coalition rather than some shonky Lib-Lab-Mickey Mouse mishmash, the poor and no doubt wounded Guardianistas feel all betrayed and slighted. Altogether now: Aww. Read the rest of this entry »

Flabbergasted.

Flabbergasted.

It’s the sort of story the left-wing bleaters will screw their faces up at and accuse you of inventing… The truly staggering tale that leaves you, quite literally, grasping for breath its sheer incredulity.

I have read some shockers, but this one is right up there with the very worst of them. Read the rest of this entry »

Comedy Grauniad Article of the Week…

Comedy Grauniad Article of the Week...

What should I wear to a protest march?

I just had to laugh at this – not only is the question itself ridiculous, the girl on the left looks like a charicature – an extra from Citizen Smith. The scarf is all wrong though – she needs a shemagh, surely? And what, no balaclava? Watch her mug quickly make its way on the Met’s all-new spotter cards.

Only the good old Grauniad can waste time publishing an article that attempts to make this work-shy activity chic.

If the more hardcore activists out there are looking for a suitable colour in which to hit the streets, I’d suggest that classic off-white with a slight touch of greyish-red, also known as hint of brain.

Yep, it has been a slow news day today.
