Sporting Chance

The Donald recently came out with yet another of his novel ideas , this being to prevent the modification of Assault rifles lest they fall into the hand of Sickos (As if)
This presumably will ensure that they kill six people or less rather than an embarrassingly larger number. Giving intended victims a sporting chance like this should be enough to silence those wishy washy liberals and make it plain to everyone what a Wunnerful warm human being Trump is.


The Sport of Curling has received an awful lot of coverage in the UK recently, doubtless due to the Winter Olympics being held in South Korea.
I’m quite prepared to accept that the sport of curling is as skilful as is claimed and equally ready to accept its Athleticism.
Yet, every time I watch it, it just always looks to me as if the Stadium’s cleaning staff have got way behind with their work.

Thin edge of the Wedge

In the UK, Councils in all areas have been charged with the task of reducing household waste. Initially, we were told that by co-operating we would be helping to save the planet. (And apart from Trump and Kim jong un – we’re probably all for that.)

The powers that be are not even pretending to believe that anymore. It’s purely about saving money, and of course, if we can save enough money then we won’t have to be too beastly to wonderful, benevolent employers like Amazon regarding their paying corporation tax or churlish about picking up the tab for the cost of repairs to our dear monarch’s Semi.

Only the very naive will believe ,that much, if any, of the money saved will be spent by a Tory government on the welfare of the needy.

Regarding the re-cycling specifics

People are employed by Councils on large salaries and Firms given lucrative contracts to come up with a workable plan.
From what I’ve seen in my local area, they’ve come up with nothing that a class of reasonably smart 10 year olds couldn’t equal, if given the task. I’m not saying that I could come up with a better plan, but then, I don’t receive a £100,000 salary for my mediocre brain.

Getting householders to do much of the work for nothing is a method shared by all councils. That was a great idea, although, I think the Romans and the Southern states had it first.

I think all householders should be aware that all of this probably won’t be these councils last territorial claims so to speak.
We may soon be requested (in the usual avuncular bullying way that councils have) to brush the road outside our homes as well.
Don’t think it won’t happen.

Crass Statements

Who said “Rape should be legal as long as at least one of the Parties involved agrees with it”?
Nobody, as far as I know, but with 17 days to go until the end of the year – Some Celebrity or Politician is bound to come up with something even more crass. Let’s see if it can be beaten.

An odd thing to do

Do you ever wonder, like I do, when was the first time in human evolution that someone thought “I think I’ll Roll my Eyes at that”, that being what another human had just done or said”.

It’s such an Odd thing to do.
