It was only a matter of time but it’s for the children of course!

Paid a visit to a local country pub on Sunday and I think it will be that last time they get my business.

The problem?

Well there is a rather nice beer garden where you can sit and watch the country views whilst having a pint and a fag and then there is the […]

A coup like thingy – maybe …

Back in the UK after some time in Estonia for a break from UK bollocks!

The following (via Zerohedge) is a rather amusing take on US hypocrisy when it comes to aid to foreign nations :- _ _

A rather amusing take on Facebook’s new privacy settings …

Spotted in passing at Zerohedge, this made me chuckle :

Mark J Grant on the EU …

Mark Grant is always an amusing read and here is his latest missive reposted in all it’s semi-psychedelic glory, for it amused me :

“For him it was a dark passage which led to nowhere, then to nowhere, then again to nowhere, once again to nowhere, always and forever to nowhere, heavy on the […]

Video Interlude – Putin gawping at bristols …

The Russian President’s face is rather amusing in this video clip at around 8 seconds when the Putin and Merkel press conference gets gatecrashed by a pair of topless protesters : _ _

I am not sure whether he was getting ready to fend the woman off or cop a feel Russian style when […]

Compare and contrast – warmist alarmism of 2000 vs snowbound reality of 2013

A reminder of what we were warned of back in 2000 from the infamous Independent article – it is still online but a bugger to get to load so here is the text I grabbed a couple of years ago :

Snowfalls are now just a thing of the past

Britain’s winter ends tomorrow […]

Pictorial Interlude – When minimum alcohol pricing doesn’t work, beer will only be available in this HM Government approved size …

I think you will wear out your finger trying to open the cans faster than it evaporates from your glass …

Electric car charging subsidies – yet more expense on the bills of the many to bribe the wealthy …

Electric cars – so popular that the government is now going to spend even more of our money on bribes to increase their use :

The government has announced that it will cover up to 75% of the cost of installing charging points for electric vehicles in garages and driveways.

Modern British Life – Nag, Nag, Nag …

Nag, nag, nag …

Today started for me at 04:30 when the radio alarm came on with an NHS advert reminding me that A&E and 999 are only for emergencies. After a shower and coffee, I drove a few junctions down the motorway and was reminded on the first overhead sign not […]

Apparently, we used to make things here in the UK …

A brief snippet – the following graph from a ZeroHedge article showing the share of global exports in 1980 and 2011 grabbed my attention with the declines in every category for things made in the UK :

Interestingly, South Korea’s gains in each category over the last 30 years almost match the UK’s […]

Back to the UK which is decidedly still in la-la land …

The Wasp is knackered after a long day of wing flapping to return to this strange little isle, where it would seem the government is still as demented as a box of frogs :

The prime minister said it was vitally important the government maintained its “credibility for deficit reduction” so it could continue […]

Ineptocracy and a Merry Christmas to all.

Tis the time of year again when The Wasp stretched his wings and heads North to spend Christmas far away from work in Estonia where it is decidedly colder than England was yesterday morning. Whilst not averse to a bit of cold, going from plus 12 to minus 16 in the […]

Having failed to prevent Ash Dieback arriving in the UK, the Government tries the Canute method to stop it spreading …

Wandering around amongst the latest Statutory Instruments, I came across this one in which the Government tries to pull a King Canute and orders the fungus not to spread (emphasis mine) :

The Plant Health (England) (Amendment) Order 2012

This Order amends the Plant Health (England) Order 2005 (S.I. 2005/2530) to […]
