Why this Blog?

A place where I can lament the changing times; for eccentric comments on current affairs and for unfashionable views, expressed I hope, in cogent style; also occasional cris de coeur largely concerned, I regret to say, with myself.


I welcome your comments, so do please write. Please note however that all comments are moderated prior to publication. Whilst I fully appreciate that life can be frustrating, nevertheless, abuse, SMS language and illiteracy will not be tolerated!

Fucking Typical EU Bullshit

I really do not like Marmite, let alone its Australian analogue "Vegemite"; I would much rather spread my toast with proper beefy Bovril.

However, all this is beside the point: the Danes who have hitherto in my opinion been quite robust in other politically-incorrect areas appear to be wanting to ban the sticky stuff.

This REALLY pisses me off: all the time, bloody governments assume the god-damned right to interfere in individuals' personal lives.

FUCK OFF - all of you (governments)!

Until the next time.

McEnroe Moment

There is a fair bit of argy-bargy at the moment concerning Dominique Strauss-Kahn's replacement as head of the IMF. It seems that some nations believe that it is time that a non-European headed the organisation.

The BBC reports that amongst the possible candidates is one Gordon Brown...

My reaction? "You cannot be serious!"

Until the next time

How Does It Work?

Some crackpot who rejoices in the name of Harold Camping has predicted that the world would end tomorrow, 21st May. The story may be found here.

As you are no doubt now aware, it hasn't.

Obviously the man is certifiable, but aside from his fatuous prediction, what mystifies me is how this clown could be the multi-millionaire that he is reported to be.

All my life I have wondered how large sums of money are acquired; this latest story only serves to increase my bafflement!

Until the next time.

Osama Bin Laden & DSK

I suppose I'm a bit late writing about this (Bin Liner) affair.

Not much to say really; there are suggestions that his assassination was illegal.

Guess what? I don't give a rat's arse whether his assassination was illegal or not; good riddance to bad rubbish.

Tragic that there are so many other fanatics ready to take his place; I wonder how he's getting on with his 72 virgins?

Perhaps DSK will convert to Islam?

In Private Eye, Craig Brown writes the excellent "Diary" for each edition. One purported to report the words of the late Harold Macmillan, Earl of Stockton, formerly British prime minister, who had to endure the famous Christine Keeler scandal in 1963. Craig Brown has his Macmillan saying that (Secretary of State for War) John Profumo had had a little trouble in the "trouser department"; all I can say is that from what I have read, it seems that Dominique Strauss-Kahn has "form" in this regard, even if the current allegations are proven not to be true. One example is this story which appeared in the Telegraph today.

Until the next time.
