So how was Climate Camp for you?

Don’t know about you lot but this blog had a whole pile of fun…. ….but  it was that veteran hogger of the limelight and burster of pompisity’s bubble, Old Holborn, who ran away with the laurels…. ….and managed to get almost an entire piece in The Groan to himself.

The Eleutherophobia vote

I’m afraid Iain Dale’s got this Chris Grayling bed and breakfast thing completely arse about face. One particularly scholarly commenter sums up the matter perectly, I think…. Sorry, Iain. You’re way south of the mark on this one. As I said over at The Groan…. Private property. Personal choice. Anathema to leftists. If the way forward […]

Cartoons and religion – bland and not very funny, but offensive?

I have a friend who reads The Guardian

Well, I say “friend” but in all honesty I tolerate him. We were talking on the phone last night about Le Duc de Moonbat’s foam-flecked philippic in yesterday’s Grauniad. The conversation went something like this…. Why are people still so rarked up about the Iraq war? Tyrant deposed and executed, consitutional democracy installed in the middle east, […]

The Lizard King speaks out against extremists

I see Ken the reptile’s on his high horse in The Grauniad this morning, condemning the BBC for giving a platform to the racist homophobe fascist, Nick Griffin. Would that be the same Ken Livingstone who was quite happy to give a platform to the murderous IRA, the racist homophobe fascist Yusuf al-Qaradawi and the […]
