Wednesday 17/12/08

Forgot to mention – had a stupid bid in the boat last weekend. Some idiot who hasn’t even seen it made an offer of £75k via the broker, which is £30k less than the asking price. Now I realise house prices have crashed, but they were fantastically overvalued in the first place – boats weren’t. In fact boats tend to hold their value for quite a long time and depreciation is very slow.

An anonymous Saudi has offered £6.5m for the shoes Muntadar al-Zaidi threw at President Bush. Now I know the latest trainers are astronomically expensive, but that’s taking it to extremes. Should I perhaps take the boat to London and ram it into the Thames Barrier in the hope that some Saudi will give me a few million quid for the wreckage?

On the PM Program last night they were asking for nominations for awards for ordinary people. We thought we’d nominate Caravan for services to old ladies, as he looks after a whole troupe of them – mowing lawns, getting their shopping, organising their recycling bins, etc. When he dies he’ll probably become the patron saint of bins and lawnmowers.

Here’s a bit of good news for Fathers For Justice – as part of sweeping changes the media will be able to report legal proceedings in family courts. Jack Straw said the changes would help lift the veil on how the legal process worked. Not before time too, although individuals will still not be able to be identified as minors will need to be protected – but what they will need protecting from is still a bit of a mystery to me. Perhaps some of my avid readers from the legal profession can explain in the comments section.

Have you noticed how the ITV 4 logo had a rather disturbing resemblance to one of the Ss in the Nazi SS symbol?
