"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."

Frothing At The Mouth

I thought I'd check in to see how Algeria was getting on since this morning (when protests were banned) and I see the state clampdown hasn't been too popular with the protesters - it's increased their number more than ever. There's also an arrest warrant out for Pervez Musharraf who's been living happily in exile in London since fleeing Pakistan and Egypt's protesters are unhappy with the military administration.  That's the world update over with.

Closer to home the phrase 'compulsory sterilisation'; was forming in my head as I read THIS:

  • single mother of five children
  • cocktails of pints of guinness, shots of double pernod and black (wth is that?)
  • previous convictions for assaulting a police officer and smearing excrement in a woman's face
What a horrible, horrible woman.  She got 18 months for biting off part of a man's ear in a drunken, jealous attack.


A second article confirmed that we still live in some strange parallel universe ruled by Labour loons - it's time Cameron & Co picked up their feet and sorted out the mess.

According to Surrey police, if a burglar hurts himself trying to break into your property, he has the right to sue you.  They've been telling residents of Surrey and Kent villages not to put wire mesh over the windows of their sheds because it could hurt someone trying to break in.  Never mind wire mesh - it's time law-abiding Britons had the right to bear arms once again.

This is a worry - a millionaire funds the National Wildlife Crime Unit. The police don't call it funding, they call it "sponsorship".  Mark Constantine OBE & founder of Lush Cosmetics said:
"I don't really want to stipulate where the money goes – as long as it's not to investigate green activists."

  1. GV, I'm sorry but it really is time to hang a few - err, no the bloody lot of them!

  2. I don't believe in capital punishment, Mr W - but certainly something must be done - 18 months for what she did seems a very light sentence. Ken Clarke isn't the man to overhaul the judiciary - bring back Michael Howard!

  3. "Algeria shuts down internet and Facebook as protest mounts
    " Much good that did Mobarak.

    On the subject of damaging burglars a Police Constable once very kindly explained to me that, yes, it was illegal to embed glass shards onto the top a wall seperating your property from the public highway but that you were perfetly entitled to put barbed wire over the fence of two adjoining private properties.
    This solved our neighbourhood (sorry, Community) problem wherin a group of lads had taken to clambering across our fences and gardens as a short cut in the middle of the night.

  4. Was that fairly recently, Banned? I can see the distinctiion he was drawing but given the latest advice from Surrey Police it doesn't look like it will hold water today - all those garden sheds are on private property. Best to just ignore it really and do what you want - let them charge you and take it to Court - before a jury.
