My favourite Robin Williams line

August 12th, 2014 · Comments Off on My favourite Robin Williams line · Life, Politics

One reason why I like comedy is the way that a comedian can often manage to sum up a whole social issue in a one-liner that makes its point better than a politician could in an entire speech, and still make you laugh  When politicians try humour it is cringeworthy at best, but when comedians […]

As ever, the ‘As if…’ website has the best perspective on Clegg’s time in charge of the country. Supply leader Nick Clegg fails to keep control as entire nation starts humming In a series of ‘Town Hall meetings’ Mr Clegg travelled the country pleading with people to ‘settle down’, ‘be quiet’, and to ‘get on […]

The wisdom of crowds…

July 7th, 2010 · 2 Comments · Politics

…of idiots? While Francis Maude has been busily rounding up government websites for the chop in order to save money, the government has been active in creating new ones to replace them.  Best of the bunch, just for the sheer entertainment value, has to be yourfreedom.hmg.gov.uk.
