First up is the Irish referendum on the Lisbon treaty. You see, the Irish, being incredibly thick, did not vote the right way the first time, so those terribly nice people in Europe decided they would be given a second chance. And if it goes the way the EU wants, that terribly nice Mr Blair will become Ruler of the Universe. This pisses me off bigtime, but hey, I'll be dead in fifty years, max, and I will have been in prison for most of that time for thought crimes (i.e. I will have been thinking, "Central control of my life by a bunch of unelected oligarchs isn't right)
This week, Iain Dale had a bit of bother with the Daily Mail. As usual I gave more than my two pennorth on his blog, but the short answer is, the Daily Mail still cannot get over the fact that he is gay and still, in the year 2009 feel it is ok to make homophobic comments. Yes, of course as a libertarian, I believe they are entitled. But I am entitled to think they are wankers.
Thanks to all those who voted in the poll on Gordon Brown's state of mental health (see side bar) If you havn't already, please do!
At the beginning of next month, I shall be going to the wedding of someone I met on the internet, and who I then had the pleasure of having as a guest at Weasel Hall a couple of times; someone who ran a funny and entertaining blog for a while and then upped sticks from the Smoke and went oop North. To say that her life took a 180 degree turn is an understatement, but sometimes fame and fortune isn't the answer, and she has exchanged liquid lunches at the Groucho and bylines in the Red Tops for something sensible.
My favourite story of the week is the Flight Lieutenant who took a wonderful swipe at Gordon Brown's handling of the Afghan affair in front of the world's press and the officer commanding of that particular debacle.
Flight Lieutenant Victoria Anderton, I salute you. May you do your duty and may God go with you. (She is quite a looker, corrrrrrrrrrr!) The Story is HERE
So have a nice weekend. Go to your record collection and fish out an album you havn't played in ages and remember why you bought it in the first place! And if you can't be arsed to do that, why, here's a fab and funny track just for you! (dedicated to Doubting Richard, who gets commenter of the week..not because I agree with him but because he made me think.)
