2020 Mar 20 - Coronavirus Update

Another week and another ratcheting up in seriousness for the Coronavirus. For me personally I was affected when my car engine light came on despite it just being serviced but it turned out that it was just the car owner virus

What's been going on around the world then? In the UK London is being put on lockdown with the Queen making a dash for Windsor Castle before the curfew came into affect. Alas most people are not able to relocate from their 1 bedroom flat to a massive mansion in the countryside. The Islington metro set are probably also getting puzzled about why only men and woman are being reported amongst the dead, the news never quotes any numbers for the other 300 genders. There's also a lot of talk about airports how to detect new cases, to which I would suggest they're all on that conveyor belt going around and around. Come on so-called experts, it's obvious!

In Italy there are a morbidly large set of numbers being reported with the government suggesting that they'll have to bring in incinerators to dispose of the bodies. That's an industrial sector that Germany has historically dabbled in although they try to not mention it. Perhaps they're more interested in the French response to the virus after the government there said it was at war with the contagion and the best way to fight that war is by staying at home. Which as we all know didn't work out very well in 1939.

In the US it depends what part of the country you live in, New York is starting to resemble that Kurt Russel film, Philadelphia is starting to like it did back in the movie 12 Monkeys and the west coast is a worry too because in this world of social chains and contact, we know that if Kevin Bacon tests positive then EVERYONE has it. The president also came under fire for suggesting that it's not racist to call it the Chinese virus, although I guess it depends if you call it that whilst putting fingers up to the corners of your eyes.

As for me, I'm working from home and the only thing I can see damaging my health is a diet consisting largely of pasta and tinned food. Earlier today There was no milk in the local shop so I ended up getting some evaporated milk, then when I got it home I discovered it was just an empty jar.

2019 Dec 01 - London Bridge Attack

Carnage this week in London, at least that's what a lot of Arsenal fans will be saying down the pub, after the sacking of Unai Emery after 18 months of abysmal managerial malaise that made Leanne Wood look like Queen Victoria. David Cameron hasn't made a comment on that story, though it's probably because he can't remember if that's one of the teams he claims to support or not.

But the big story of course this week was of course a different kind of arsenal, the kind that armed police carry on t ......

2019 Feb 23 - Shamima Begum

This week has seen a lot of debate, by which I mean politicallyy correct attention seeking, over whether teenager Shamima Begum should be allowed to return to the UK, after spending years living in ISIS controlled territory and discovering that 'ISIS' rhymes with 'crisis' and that like those still holding onto Blackberry telephones, the jihadist extremists are very much on the losing side these days; the territory held has been reduced to just a couple of hundred square miles, approximately the ......

2018 Oct 28 - Pipe Bomb Attacks

Well it's halloween time but there's always someone who takes it too far and this year it was a 56 year old man in Florida who took it upon himself to scare politicians by sending them over a dozen pipe bombs in the post. The potential victims included the Clintons, former president Obama as well as actor Robert Deniro who having escaped a grisly death akin to Goodfellas or the Godfather, will now have many more years in which to murder his reputation with films like the Fockers series or that o ......

2017 Aug 18 - Charlottesville Violence


There was news this past week in America when that old problem of racism managed to escape from its containment cell in Mel Gibson’s house and make it all the way across the country to Virginia with a flashpoint of violence in Charlottesville which is a small university town up in the Blue Ridge Mountains, ironically in one of the few parts of Virginia where there wasn’t even any fighting during the actual US Civil War.

It was always liable to turn violent and then President Trump decided ......

2017 May 24 - Manchester Bombing

Another attack, this time in Manchester, and as usual the only good news is that there’s now one less terrorist in the world. Seems that once again it was a lone nut-job, although ISIS have since claimed responsibility which shows that they’ve got the same ‘management claiming all the credit’ problems that other organisations have, we’ve all had jobs like that I suppose.

Manchester is a great place though, in spite of George Osbourne trying his hardest to dilute its ‘Madchester’ ......

2017 Mar 24 - @#%! of The Year

What a depressing week: an utter tosspot killed some folk in London, not normally news but it happened right outside parliament so it’ll be generating column inches for years to come. Just look at Guy Fawkes, he didn’t even succeed with his plot and the papers still mention him every year. As for the Westminster Bridge attack, it was actually a year to the day since the Brussels bombings where 32 people died, and it was lucky for many I suppose then that in comparison the British attempt was ......
