    Income Tax and Politics

    During the election fever to date, not one of the major parties has made any mention about raising the basic rate of income tax for the next parliament. Paying tax is never popular no matter how much you earn, or don't earn. Even less so when an election beckons......................but in one...

    Lisbon treaty

    Shooed in by the House of Lords last night. How meek this country has become since the poll tax riots. A few whimpers of protest and that's about it. This, to me, is the result of the way politics has been in the last 15 years. Too much spin doctoring and hot air have left people totally...

    UK chooses 'most ludicrous laws' - from BBC News

    A little-known law which prohibits people dying while in the Houses of Parliament has been voted the UK's most ludicrous piece of legislation. Another law which states it is treason to use a postage stamp upside down was placed in second place by those polled by UKTV Gold. The most absurd...

Certainly not to sit there point scoring and playing ner-nicky-ner-ner surely ? How the hell does this look to outsiders ? Could our overseas correspondents...

  10. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die

    Just heard about this book that was published late last year - some strange choices and (IMHO) some glaring ommisions. That said, I own 293 of these and have heard a further 108 giving me a respectable total of 401. To be honest, dying would be a favourable option to hearing most of the others...

  12. Any UK Independence Party Voters?

    Nice to see someone taking stage at the European parliament, standing up for what the party believes in Cuckoo!  Cuckoo!  Cuckoo! I particularly like the "don't clean behind the fridge enough" comment, something I heartily concur with.

    Groundhog Day

    My favourite film... Sunday February 1, 2004 The Observer (Today) is Groundhog Day. Perhaps your diary does not remind you of this celebration; mine lists nothing between Epiphany and St Valentine's. Maybe because the 117-year-old Groundhog festival takes place in Punxsutawney, western...
