It’s not illegal but you cannot have it because we think it’s bad for you!

Sorry, you can’t buy this in Ipswich – the police and council say it’s bad for you.

Following on from yesterday’s shroud waving attacks on the furniture shop quite legally giving away beer to customers, we now have a whole town full of bansturbators getting shops to ‘voluntarily’ agree […]

Nulla poena sine lege – cue much shroud waving …

Want a table with that?

How is it that anything that offends the shroud wavers but is not actually illegal is always described as a “loophole”?

Before getting to the point, a brief aside regarding the title (via wikipedia) :

Nulla poena sine lege (Latin: no penalty without a law) is […]

It is never wise to poke a wasps nest with a stick and expect a happy outcome – firstly from ZeroHedge :

An example of the government implementing EU regulations presented as the government taking strong action via The BBC :

The government is going ahead with its plan to ban retailers from imposing excessive or surprise charges on people who pay by debit or credit card.

The plan was first announced last December following […]

BBC on shooting burglars and how it should read …

This one caught my eye for the slant the BBC have put on the evil householder protecting his property :

Householder arrested after suspected burglars shot

A householder and his wife have been arrested in Leicestershire after two suspected burglars were hit with shotgun pellets.

The wounded men and two others have also been […]

When importing buttocks be sure to check they are authentic …

 

Not very buttock like …

After being arrested for trying to import Saddam’s buttocks it would appear that they may not be Saddam’s buttocks after all :

TWO men who allegedly illegally imported the buttock from a statue of Saddam Hussein to Derbyshire have been released without charge.

Orwellian references coming thick and fast.

Whilst drowning in work and not having a great deal of time to actually write anything here, the following two snippets caught my eye with references to 1984 :

Firstly from ZeroHedge, the following excerpt from an interesting article on the “War on Terror” and how Al Qaeda fighters are now allies and not […]

Paying (for) Lip Service at the NHS … around £6 million per year and counting …

A BBC article this morning that had me spluttering my coffee all over while wondering why the fuck I (and every other tax payer) should be funding shit like this on the NHS :

The rise in women seeking a perfect vagina

Last year more than 2000 labiaplasties were carried out on the NHS, […]

All in a tizzy over B16B00B5? Whatever next?

The cryptic selection of letters in the title is apparently sexist and most embarassing for Microsoft according to The BBC in one of the most rediculous pieces of bollocks I have read in some time :

Microsoft has swiftly fixed an embarrassing gaffe which saw a chunk of code labelled “big boobs”.

UK drops to second place in the league table of governments spying on their citizens.

A BBC News article today on the Google Transparency report reminded me of a piece I wrote back in 2010 on the same subject where the UK came out on top for countries spying on their citizens when population size was taken into account.

Today’s report shows however that the UK has slipped to […]

How many consultations does the government need to implement a rule already imposed by the EU on food labelling?

A BBC article yesterday announces a consultation on food labelling :

Food manufacturers, supermarkets and health experts are to be asked their views on the best way to label the nutritional content of food.

There have been long-running battles over how to label the amount of fat, sugar, salt and calories in food […]
