An interesting one from ZeroHedge in which Tepco finally admits that the (seemingly) alarmist news reporting about the situation in Japan is actually not too far from the truth :

Idle journalists waving the shrouds for the government funded charities.

These days, reading any article in the press that mentions the word charity linked to some service cuts immediately raises my suspicions enough to go and have a look at the Charity Commision website to see just how much tax money is being handed over to them.

Call me cynical, but it is the […]

One from BBC News that possibly goes beyond the call of science :

Apparently, the arts are more important than the police in the UK.

As the modern day UK descends into total and complete irrelevance in the world thanks to cuts to our armed forces and assimilation into a Federal European State, news today that arty types are protesting over cuts to the arts merely confirms how pointless this country is :
