before being interviewed by the media, spokesman should first state how much they're being paid to say whatever it is they're going to say

one law for us, another law for them

while inner city kids get nicked for smoking a bit of dope, the plod allows huntscum to break the law with impunity -- equality in the uk? yeh, we all get an equal chance to lick the arse of the aristocracy

if one of the bush brigade married one of the clinton crowd, and there were offspring, then there'd be no more need for presidential elections in the USA

being older than both Bush & Blair, it's always tempting to offer them advice -- however i suspect there are times when my views don't reflect those of the majority, which isn't completely disastrous, as in the past i've argued with a certain amount of success that as a rule of thumb the majority is always wrong -- before throwing your teddy out the pram and spouting tautologies at me, please bear in mind that this argument has a philosophical pedigree of sorts -- (a possible exception to the rule is the belief in the existence of a human soul) -- obviously if the majority agreed with me then err.... anyway i've just added the Political Compass app to my Facebook page, and it comes out at -

      Economic Left/Right: -8.25
      Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -8.97

(which isn't quite at the bottom left hand corner of the graph)


perhaps England would now be a better place if it'd had Neil Kinnock and William Hague as Prime Ministers instead of Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair


Trash Vortex - the world's biggest rubbish bin


if i added affiliate links to my most popular pages i could probably generate more than enough to cover all my net costs -- but i think it'd be the thin end of a slippery slope on the road to hell -- i've got something of an addictive personality and the last thing i need is to become obsessed with making money -- so this is a free plug for my main web host -


i first came across the internet in 1991, and started using it regularly in 1993 -- my first web site was put together in 1996 while working at a web design and hosting company -- and Dreamhhost is the best i've come across yet -- they're an employee owned company that's been around for 10 years and hosts over half a million web sites, providing terrabytes of bandwidth and hundreds of gigabytes of disc space at remarkably low cost, with the best customer service you're likely to find in a major web host (tho i guess that's not saying much, given the general standard of technical support in most places) ... but be warned, they're not for everyone -- check out why they think people who work in other web hosting companies are crazy -
