PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
The Derek Conway Awards
BlackFlag News is ready to accept nominations for this prestigious new award, which will be made to the person who exposes the worst public sector scandal of 2008 through being exposed for his/her own scandalous behaviour.
The police can't touch Derek Conway, they reckon, because his accounts are full of holes and the rules of conduct for MPs have been left deliberately vague to help MPs get away with almost anything.
Does the Democrats fielding a presidential candidate called O'Bama look like a blatant bid for the Irish vote? And is it any less disgraceful than Republican Senator 'Oven Chips' McCain's story that he's descended from Robert the Bruce, which is just a bid for the Scottish vote?
The urge for something else
Piling on new Stealth Taxes at the Budget is nothing new but the current chancellor, a.k.a. Him with the Eyebrows, has taken the unusual step of blaming his crisis on 10 years of labour misrule.
The Brown Hole in Britain's finances has grown by £7 billion since the last government guesses were made in November, 2007.
The government is doing nothing about repairing the damage which it has done to the economy before the next general election in the hope that the Tories will be stuck with the job of cleaning up labour's mess.
Can't stop smoking?
There can be no compromise with nicotine addiction!

Freedom of Information under labour
margaret hodge, sometime minister for covering up child abuse, is the MP for Barking. Now, you couldn't make that up!
Something else you couldn't make up
A Reader Writes:
Out of sight, never mind?
The EU, which keeps telling us it's saving the planet, wants drivers to leave their headlights on permanently and increase their fuel consumption by 5%. The scheme, which is supposed to be about road safety, is entirely inappropriate for countries south of Norway and it will dump billions of tons of unnecessary carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. Crazy or what!
A note of dissent In Canada and the northern states of the USA, this year's 'Winter From Hell' is breaking records for awfulness going back to 1873. China, Afghanistan and Tibet have all suffered record low temperatures and months of snow, and there has been snow in Palestine.
"Can tony blair stop global warming?"
Another labour swindle exposed
They're not there to set examples
Evidence? Who cares about that?
The man who organized mass murder of rebellious Kurds for Saddam Hussein in the 1980s is to be hanged this month.
Foghorn Leghorn's alter ego is bowing out of Irish politics under a cloud. The man who made it his mission to let the British government in London hear him yelling "Ulster says NO!" from his own doorstep in Belfast upset his own party by cosying up to the IRA faction in the Ulster parliament after the dirty deal was done. Which proved terminal. But only in the sense of being allowed to retire rather than bullet-in-the-back-of-the-head terminal.
He made a name for himself as a smasher of prostitution rackets while spending $80K on hookers over the last 10 years. He has turned out to be typical of the class of politician who think the rules don't apply to them. But such arrogance, for once, has received its come-uppance, and there may be criminal charges to follow if some dirty deal doesn't go down. Like money-laundering, tax evasion and transporting prostitutes across state lines.
10 years of labour misrule have made the British corporate tax system so uncompetitive that one of the major internet companies feels that it can save lots of money by relocating in Switzerland. The complex and confused mass of regulations introduced by a control-freak chancellor called broon are to blame. While Switzerland is a hellishly expensive place to live, its tax laws are easy to understand and they don't keep changing every 5 minutes, and the tax rates for businesses are lower than in Britain.
The science fiction writer and visionary, who came up with the concept of communication satellites in a stationary orbit in 1945, has died at 90. Born in Somerset, he served in the RAF as a radar specialist during World War II, when he became involved with Manchester's science-fiction, space-travel and rocketry fans.
The actor who played Mr. Barraclough in Porridge and 'Foggy' Dewhurst in The Last of the Summer Wine has died at 80. He began his acting career in the mid-1960s in films and TV, and his part in a one-off Ronnie Barker TV comedy led to his regular role in 4 seasons of Porridge. He joined the case of The Last of the Old Fellers in 1976, stayed for 9 years, took 5 years off then returned for a further 7 years after 'Seymour Utterthwaite' left. He is still to be seen most days in digital TV heaven on the UKTV Drama channel.

Surprise! A survey has found that the MPs who have the highest expenses claims are fighting hardest to prevent proper scrutiny of their claims. Which confirms that the biggest scroungers are working the biggest fiddles and worried about losing a cushy job when their crimes are exposed.
Unintended consequence of class envy

Last month, Lord Mancroft lambasted the Royal United Hospital, Bath, over its filthy wards and slack staff. The labour establishment launched an immediate sleaze campaign against him. This month, the hospital has been forced to close 3 wards because of its third outbreak of norovirus since November 2007. QED!
Cry poverty and get laughed at
The government wants to close down the world famous, and world class, Jodrell Bank radio telescope to save £2.7 million an amount which would struggle to pay the expenses of 16.8 greedy MPs. This attempt at scientific vandalism comes as an £8 million upgrade programme involving Jodrell Bank is approaching completion.
The Lie is Truth
The others have been encouraged enough now
Heather Mills is appealing against a divorce settlement of twenty-odd million quid in her ass-kicking contest with Sir P. McCartney. We agree. She should definitely pay him a whole lot more than that.
eddie balls-speak for beginners
Read this and weep
President Sarkozy popped across the Channel with his wife for a couple of days to prove that French politicians can talk at least as much crap as their British counterparts. He succeeded in embarrassing scotch gordon thoroughly by praising most of Britain's past achievements for which new labour has apologized.

Named Jules Verne after the French master of science fiction, the first of these vehicles needed a beefed-up Ariane 5 rocket to launch it toward the International Space Station. The ATV is designed to deliver 9 metric tons of equipment and supplies into space, and to dock automatically at the ISS.
Where are the bogus refugees and asylum seekers lurking? Quite a lot of them are living at airports on the quiet. The owners have made them so welcoming that people with nowhere else to go are dressing up as travellers, enjoying the facilities and trying to look like people who have just arrived or who are waiting to go somewhere.

Loud noise in South America, not many dead
Too fat to move!
Shambles as usual
The BBC, which keeps on pleading poverty, is sending 437 trippers to the Peking Olympic Games. Great Britain can afford to send only 300 competitors.
The former military alliance is being transformed to meet the consequences of a warmer climate and more extensive summer thaws in the Arctic. NATO resources will be redeployed in newly accessible regions here to stop Russia from marching in and annexing everything in sight on the basis of dodgy geography and/or geology.

Could scaremongering be the last refuge of a scoundrel?
Some preliminary posturing before business as usual
Bone-heads only by request
Public sector workers in the former Soviet empire are being told that they can vote for anyone they like as long as they support the Putin ticket. With an implied 'or else'. Why? Because their bosses have to meet a target of a 72% vote for the Putin ticket, they're worried about being caught cheating and they want to keep the amount of necessary fraud to a minimum.
