More extracts from the Dark Lords book The Third Man, from behind the Times pay wall with the revelation Fear and Loathing at No 10.
Is it interesting or just another tired cliché that The Times should have gone for what a generation ago would have been cutting edge satire but it is now thanks to Jonny Depp just a weird film, which bares little resemblance to the original book by Hunter S Thompson.
A good deal of time has passed since Aardvark read Fear and Loathing In Las Vegas but if memory serves Aardvark correctly there is a line in the book that goes “There is nothing more depraved than a man in the depths of an ether binge”, which was something to do with an overweight Samoan attorney.
This could of course could be applied to Gordon Brown as “There is nothing more depraved than a man in the depths of a power binge”, look how many days it took Brown to come down from his power trip before he could get his shit together and leave No 10. Read the rest of this entry
These are indeed strange times, the day has come when Aardvark is in agreement with a Labour MP!
It had to happen sooner or later, and the one thing that transcends party politics is the great Anthropogenic Global Warming scam. The so called investigations into the goings on at the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia have either been a blatant whitewash or not asked the right questions and danced around the issue.
Then the there is the reinstatement of a scientist, Phil Jones, who made a policy of ignoring Freedom of Information Requests and had data deleted, all of which is supposed to restore public confidence in Climate
The Science and Public Policy Blog:
Parliament was misled and needs to re-examine the Climategate affair thoroughly after the failure of the Russell report, a leading backbench MP told us today. Read the rest of this entry
Just what goes through the minds of the utopian socialist fuckwits who make up the European Court of Human Rights?
What for this, the Court is concerned about the possible lenght of jail terms that Hamza and Babar Ahmad could receive if convicted of terrorism charges in the USA. Life without parole is far too harsh a sentence for a terrorist willing to sentence his victims to death without parole. Read the rest of this entry
The scandal of homeless ex-service people is something that upsets Aardvark a lot, as regular readers of this blog will know, so it makes the blue anteater marginally happier, that yet another organsiation has sprung up to try and help with the problem UKHomes4heroes.com.
UK Homes 4 Heroes is a non-profit charity set up on the 23rd April 2010 to aid our ex service men & women, who have served this country and after leaving, find themselfs in a situation of being homeless for what ever reason, long council housing list’s and low banding
means that they could be classed homeless for a long period, Read the rest of this entry
Defence Secretary Liam Fox is expected to announce today that British Forces in Sangin province will hand over combat operations to US forces later on this year.
British forces in Sangin have been involved in some their heaviest fighting since World War 2, and a third of all our brave war dead have died there. Read the rest of this entry
Communities Secretary Eric Pickles has “suggested” to Local Councils that they scrap expensive “non jobs” to protect front line services from cuts.
Just what do “Street Football Co-ordinators”, “Cheerleading Development Officers”, Diversity Officers and “Communications Waste Strategy Officers” do other than cost a lot of money?
It is time that Local Councils were made accountable for their ludicrous waste of money on pointless non jobs.
Local Government is still living in an unreal world funded by the bottomless pit of the tax payer, just check the Guardian jobs page and see how manu local Government jobs pay £40-50k per year and all paid for by us.
The latest news that ministers must prepare for potential cuts in their budgets of 40% makes Aardvark wonder why the foreign aid budget is protected from cuts, especially when we have soldiers buying their own kit before going into a combat zone, and those that have served their country living rough on the streets.
The amount given by countries varies, the USA is the biggest contributor and Britain is in the top 5 aid donors. The amount each country donates varies Read the rest of this entry
