We Don't Need No Ejukayshun


In the Pink, for One Night Only

Yay! Best band in the world, Pink Floyd, together again.


Farce

Azerbaijan? Eurovision?

Eurovision is not really about talent and songs; it’s a place where old enmities surface and ancient battles are fought out by proxy.

The very idea of a united Europe is absurd.

Hans plays with Lotte, Lotte plays with Jane
Jane plays with Willi, Willi is happy again
Suki plays with Leo, Sacha plays with Britt
Adolf builts a bonfire, Enrico plays with it
-Whistling tunes we hid in the dunes by the seaside
-Whistling tunes we're kissing baboons in the jungle
It's a knockout
If looks could kill, they probably will
In games without frontiers-war without tears
Games without frontiers-war without tears

Jeux sans frontieres


Man Utd. Buy FA Cup for Record 19th Time

With a shopping budget greater than the GDP of Peru, Manchester United has once again bought the FA Cup.


Tax Payers Revolting

The Tax Payers’ Alliance, a Tory front organisation ostensibly dedicated to lower taxes, decided to hold a rally yesterday in support of government cuts. Only 350 people turned up.

Hardly surprising really when you consider that one of its directors doesn’t even pay tax in the UK and its charitable arm - the Politics and Economics Research Trust - is under investigation by regulators following allegations that the group may have used the trust to gain tax relief for donations intended to fund political research.

Talk about wasting tax….


Ejukayshun

In a link with the first item, I sometimes despair of my son’s teachers.

He was doing a project on slavery in the USA and I advised him to put something in about the American Declaration of Independence and how it’s incompatible with slavery.

His history teacher told him that the ADoI had nothing to do with slavery.

Here is the 2nd sentence of the ADoI: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Now, tell me again that this has nothing to do with slavery.
