>Cameron’s No-Fly Zone

>Cameron says the government is pushing for a no-fly zone over Libya and that military action is “not out of the question”.

Here’s an exclusive pic of the Big Society RAF preparing for take-off:

Or, he might like to ask George to release a bit of cash to invest in a couple of these:

It’s been a bad day today and reading the news doesn’t make things any better: Algeria, China, Libya, Bahrain, Oman…   The list goes on and the world ‘leaders’ – the vacuous and vainglorious nonenties who shaped the world as it is today – wring their hands, have a lot of meetings and try to look as though their words carry any weight.

Now Health & Safety ‘experts’ are bad-mouthing one of life’s little consolations   Well, these puritanical killjoys can back off and get their hands off my tootsies.

Here are two links and a video about the money supply.  I’ve linked to Positive Money before but One Good Cut, the makers of the video, are new to me.  I hope you find them interesting:

I can barely find the words this morning so make free use of the comments to call Lincolnshire’s Chief Constable Richard Crompton all the names under the sun if you want to.   He has defended the use of d-i-y fingerprinting kits and insists:

‘It’s not policing on the cheap, it is people volunteering to do their bit within society.’

It’s become a regular event for me, daily in fact, to wonder who are the delusional amongst us.  I feel like I’m living in an alternate reality to these people, these police spookesmen (ACPO-influenced), the CEOs of local councils, the chairmen of quangos, the pro-Crow unionistas, lying politicos and MPs who swear black’s white*, a media that reports half-truths and glosses over the rest … endless.

I see I’ve got a typo above – it should be spokesmen but I’ll leave it as it is, spookesmen will do just as well.


*  That reminds me.  Did anyone miss Mandelson’s light sauteeing at the hands of Andrew Marr at the weekend?  Sick bags all round:

>Funny

>I just had to post this – it’s one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. Chilean u-20 player Bryan Carrasco gives a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘don’t beat yourself up about it’ or how about ‘a fistful of molars’? I dunno – looks pretty ‘armless’ to me … … …

“… which will secure, for every citizen, on condition of working and contributing while he can work, an income sufficient for the subsistence of himself and his family when for any reason he cannot work…”
