"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Coming Full Circle

I can't wait to get back to blogging because I've had enough of dealing with banks online and by telephone  - NatWest anyone?  All their numbers have been engaged since eleven o'clock this morning - even the direct number to the branch (0208 804 4892).  What a waste of space they are

Back in our world HMRC are flying the idea of details of earnings going directly to them with a view to extending the scheme. The keyword in the following quote is "initially":

HMRC initially wants to stop short of collecting employees’ salaries directly and instead take just the details of what they earned.
Well, good luck to them with that one.  The one who thought of it and those around the coffee table who supported it should be sacked for being so detached and completely out of it.  It was first mooted under the last government so I think Cameron will see the faults.

Governments are determined to get their mitts on the internet.  New internet regulation has been proposed but, of course, it's all in our own best interests.  'They don't like it up 'em' but I think they should get used to it.

MPs who secretly paid back what they thieved from the public purse have been able to escape electoral wrath by a process of "rectification" .  Was your MP one of these?  A quick and simple FoI request (sidebar) will help you find out.

I'd like to know YouTube's reasoning.  Why has Grumpy Old Twat (Peardrops be upon him) been banned yet they allow this man to carry on?

This is great though (click to enlarge):

It's very funny to see how we all stereotype other countries and particularly gratifying to find a new description of the EU courtesy of the British: EFEE.
