TOGs

So fair thee well Sir Terrence. Enjoy the semi-retirement

Just one thing to note tho' - you'd think the Gord could count after being Chancellor of the Exchequer.

In his vote for me pleeeease,...I mean warm, message to Sir Tel, he said: ""Five decades at the very top of British broadcasting is a towering, indeed an unparalleled achievement."

Um, Sir Terry started on the beeb in 1969 - which is 40 years, four decades, and took on the breakfast show in 1972.

Ah well.

IT'S (nearly) CHRISTMAS!!!

Don't have too much too say at the moment, Things are a tad depressing and all that.

Instead some updated carols -

Christmas is a-coming the country's getting thin
Please put some money in the deficit bin
If you haven't got a penny then a ha'penny will do
And if you are a banker then fuck to you
----------
Silent Night, Holy Night
All is calm all is bright
Last defence spending, cupboards laid bare
For those soldiers getting blown up out there
Sleep in bivowacy peace, sleep in bivowacy peace.
----------
Oh come all you voters, fill the pockets of wankers
Who know you'll be paying their mortgages tonight.
Sing for your supper, as we pay each other
Oh come lets redact houses
Oh come lets redact towers
Oh come all you MPs and trough out the night
-----------
O little town of Copenhagan
How still we see them lie
Above they fly, carbon credits in the sky
The warming seems to pass them by
Yet on the web the emails come to pass
Of lying out their arse
Their man-created fears of all the years
Are laid bare for all to see.
-----------
following the latest defence cuts, the MoD has issued revised lyrics for one carol

I saw a ship come sailing in, on Christmas day, on Christmas Day
I saw a ship come sailing in, on Christmas day in the morning

It should be three but only one came in, because of pay because of pay.
There was only one that we could see, because Christmas cuts in the Navy

DECKCHAIRS

So the guvment is to tax all British-trading banks a "one-off" 50% tax on bonuses is it?

A couple of questions:

What will stop banks from "paying" bonuses in a non-taxable manner? Which will lead to lower tax revenues

What right does a government have to dictate tax in a discriminary manner?

I know there is deep anger against bankers at the moment but governments should not have the right to dictate bonus policy of a privately-owned business. That is down to shareholders and management not a politician (and following troughgate the irony is huge).

Today could be the day that Labour's scorched-earth policy comes to fruition and I will remember the date for ever as it's my birthday...bastards!

Couldn't you have sent a card instead?

JONAH CURSE

On a lighter note Guido Fawkes does the occasional amusing "Curse of Jonah" about the death-touch of Gordon Brown but he seems to have missed a very high profile hit -

David Beckham's football academy in south-east London is "very likely" to close by the end of the year, site owners AEG Europe have confirmed

THINK FAST



My mother died following a massive stroke yesterday morning so today I would like everyone to forget about climate change, troughing MPs, Nanny States and the EU and for a moment think FAST.

Facial weakness - can the person smile? Has their mouth or eye drooped?

Arm weakness - can the person raise both arms?

Speech problems - can the person speak clearly and understand what you say?

Time to call 999


If the person has failed any one of these tests, you must call 999. Stroke is a medical emergency and by calling 999 you can help someone reach hospital quickly and receive the early treatment they need.

Prompt action can prevent further damage to the brain and help someone make a full recovery. Delay can result in death or major long-term disabilities, such as paralysis, severe memory loss and communication problems (aphasia).


FAST wouldn't have saved my mum but it could save someone else's life.
