  1. Horse meat

    After having a discussion on a FB page with an American over Europeans eating horse meat, I asserted that apart from France, it's not a widespread thing. How suprised was I when it turns out Johnny Foreigner loves to chow down on ol' Black Beauty (and sometimes donkey meat). Now I'm no...

    Question Eurovision

    What a load of rubbish that was last night. An instantly forgettable winner, however political a subject it may have been. The inclusion of Australia was farcical. An excellent production by the Swedish, as reasonable a song from us as we've had for many a year and a real change to the voting...

    Politics in 2014

    2010 Ryder Cup

    The Ryder Cup at Celtic Manor is now just over 3 weeks away, and both teams are now confirmed, with Corey Pavin having handed a wildcard to Tiger Woods.

    If The World Was A Village Of A 1000 People

    If we could reduce the world’s population to a village of precisely 100 people, with all existing human ratios remaining the same, the demographics would look something like this: The village would have 60 Asians, 14 Africans, 12 Europeans, 8 Latin Americans, 5 from the USA and Canada...

    Good deeds, why bother?

    Last night I heard an argument going on outside my flat. Now this is fairly normal as there is a late mini market benath my flat and is often freqented by drunk, eastern europeans. Anyway this one was between a bloke and a girl. He was shouting at her about talking to some other bloke in the...

    David Icke:  "The Queen Is A Lizard"

    A truly wonderful interview is being conducted by This Morning with David Icke right now. Apparently, the world is being controlled by shape-changing super reptiles known as the "illuminati."  The Queen, presidents, prime ministers are in on it all - and Burt Bacharach!     Also, tables don't...
