Crying monks disrupt China’s Tibet media tour

What I find idiotic about the Chinese is that they trot out bare faced lies and seem surprised that nobody believes them.For example a story in the Daily Telegraph reported that when the Chinese allowed Western journalists into Tibet again recently some monks protested to the press.

The monks shouted “Tibet is not free! Tibet is not free!” and another said that he wanted The Dalai Lama to return to Tibet”

The response from the Chinese was “They always tell lies to foreign reporters” and the official went on to say: “I would like to stress that, including the monks, the people of various ethnic groups in Tibet are resolutely safeguarding the national unity and oppose separatist activities.”


The Tibetans claim they want to be free of China and the Chinese claim that everyone on Tibet wants to be part of China. Who are we to believe, the people themselves or some pen pushing bureaucrat who is part of the oppressive establishment which the Tibetans are complaining about?

The Chinese seem flabbergasted that anyone would not believe their bullshit. I guess what this shows is the oppressive totalitarianism of the Chinese regime.If they really believed that the people in Tibet “oppose separatist activities”  then why not have an election. That way they could legitimise their rule and silence their critics.

Israeli wall in Palestine

Israeli wall in Palestine

I found this map on the net showing where the Israelis are building their wall.

I’d heard that it was inside the Palestinian territory but I hadn’t appreciated by how much.

I don’t understand Israel’s long term strategy. It seems to be to settle the Palestinian areas with extremist Jews and to wall in the Palestinians in ghettos.

This is a recipe for continued conflict.

Secret council tax database penalises homes with a view

Government Information SecurityThe Daily Telegraph reported today on a “secret council tax database” which would hold information on whether your home has a nice view or whether you have off street car parking.

Yet Ministers’ claim that the revaluationErich PicklesErich Picklesn of homes in England for Council Tax purposes had been postponed. Postponed while they collect yet more information on citizens to be stored in yet another database to be lost by the same civil service who lost your bank details.

MPs seem to love to collect information about us but you Will recall that they consider that they should be except from the Freedom of Information act.

The Telegraph quotes Eric Pickles, the Conservative local government spokesman as saying:

“Every home is being sized up, and every home improvement or sign of a nice neighbourhood is slowly being photographed, catalogued and taxed by Gordon Brown’s inspectors.”

The Labour party seem bent on micromanaging every aspect of our lives.

To whom it may concern

To whom it may concern, a poem by Adrian Mitchel written in 1964

I was run over by the truth one day.
Ever since the accident I’ve walked this way
  So stick my legs in plaster
  Tell me lies about Vietnam.

Heard the alarm clock screaming with pain,
Couldn’t find myself so I went back to sleep again
  So fill my ears with silver
  Stick my legs in plaster
  Tell me lies about Vietnam.

Every time I shut my eyes all I see is flames
Made a marble phone book and I carved all the names
 So coat my eyes with butter
  Fill my ears with silver
  Stick my legs in plaster
  Tell me lies about Vietnam.

I smell something burning, hope it’s just my brains.
They’re only dropping peppermints and daisy-chains
  So stuff my nose with garlic
  Coat my eyes with butter
  Fill my ears with silver
  Stick my legs in plaster
  Tell me lies about Vietnam.

Where were you at the time of the crime?
Down by the Cenotaph* drinking slime
  So chain my tongue with whisky
  Stuff my nose with garlic
  Coat my eyes with butter
  Fill my ears with silver
  Stick my legs in plaster
  Tell me lies about Vietnam.

You put your bombers in, you put your conscience out,
You take the human being and you twist it all about
  So scrub my skin with women,
  Chain my tongue with whisky
  Stuff my nose with garlic
  Coat my eyes with butter
  Fill my ears with silver
  Stick my legs in plaster
  Tell me lies about Vietnam.

What does Britain live on?

Sunset for the North Sea I heard today that the biggest contributor the chancellor’s tax is the oil industry.

But hang on. Haven’t New Labour been telling us for years that we have to get used to working in new ways. Britain should not worry about losing it’s engineering and it’s motor industry. We needn’t worry that we have no capacity to build power stations. It is irrelevant that the trains that carry us to work are made by Germans or that our computers are made by China. We are the future! We are the ones who embrace new technology. The world will knock on our door for…..what?


Britain has become a nation of management consultants and public relations executives.

The oil is running out and we will soon find out if Britain can survive on intangibles alone.


Star Fish

E-merging from my dwelling at around 6:30 this monring  I discoverred a dead star fish in the middle of the road. “An odd place for such a fish” I thought to myself.

At the office The Daily Telegraph came to the rescue with an explanation, or rather the lack of one.

“The Environment Agency is investigating the incident but said it was not connected with the recent storms, pollution or climate change.”


So they are investigating but can already say that it is not to do with lots of stuff. I’d add a few more things it’s not to do with:

  • Tin production in Peru
  • The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe
  • Billy the Fish, the amusing comic strip

They quote a spokesman named Ian Humphries saying that it is not uncommon for starfish to be washed up on the shore.

I had no idea that star fish had spokesman and was even more surprised to discover that his name was Ian.

Perhaps it was Ian I saw laying in the road this morning. A sad loss to the Sussex Star Fish community.

Lord Goldsmith is an idiot

Here he is, yet another idiot leader of The United Kingdom. We have hundreds of them.

He was on BBC Radio 4 this morning being interviewed by John Humphrys. Lord G has authored a report into ways that we can all be made more British with an eye on Johnny immigrant of course. One of his wheezes is to have teenage school kids swear their allegiance to The Queen.

Lord G. was asked if he didn’t think this was a bit un-British?

– No he didn’t think so.

Did he think that perhaps Northern Irish, Scottish or republicans might object to taking the oath?

– No he didn’t think so.

He was asked again, “What swear allegiance to the very things they object to?”

– “No, I don’t see why they shouldn’t”

The guy is completely out of touch and obviously……


Then again his other idea shows more promise: a bank holiday. This shows him to be completely in tune with Britishness. Give us a day off guvnor and we’ll vote for whatever you wants. Give us a week off and we’ll wear bowler hats and eat blimmin’ fish and chips every day. Give us a month off and we’ll sing God Save The Queen every night before the TV goes off.

We’re bone idle, we’re British and we’re proud. God save The Queen ya lordship.
