There's a rumour going round that the National Football League had received a membership application from a team based in England. The proposed team will be the all-wimmin Harperson Harridans and they'll be based at Personchester.

The government is looking for a way to reverse its scheme providing free concessionary bus travel for the over 60s because people are using buses instead of their cars. Which is rather strange after the millions of taxpayers' cash which the government has blown on trying to persuade motorists to use public transport on bogus environmental grounds.

Lord Sleaze has decreed that the Somerfield supermarket in Romiley has to be handed over to Sainsbury's. So lots of disruption for Romiley's shoppers, lots of lost income for Somerfield and what's achieved? Absolutely bloody nothing. But that's New Labour for you; a total waste of time and money, especially other people's money.
Crazy, or what!
Business opportunity going begging!

Loan shark Robert Reynold extracted £88,000 in interest from a woman who borrowed £500, he claimed he'd spent all the cash at Newcastle Crown Court and Judge John Evans didn't send him to gaol. In Manchester, Judge Adrian Smith gave loan shark John Kiely a 5-year sentence for extracting £3 million in interest from his customers over a 3-year period at rates up to 2,437%.

The sometime 'accidental' president of the Philippines had died at 76. Corazon Aquino was very much the wife at home for her husband, Benigno, the opposition leader, who was eventually forced into exile by President Marcos. Marcos had Benigno Aquino murdered in 1983 and 3 years later, Corazon Aquino was swept into power on a tide of anti-Marcos indignation. She offered the sincerity of her belief in Roman Catholicism but nothing much in the way of policies.
The guitarist, inventor and creator of one of the first solid-body guitars for the Gibson company has died at 94. He began his musical career as a hillbilly and jazz guitarist, he became interested in recording in the 1930s and pioneered multi-tracking (overdubbing) when reel-to-reel tape recorders became available.
The "Chappaquiddick Kid" and a good buddy of the IRA has died at 77. His brother Joe failed to become US president because he was killed during World War II, his brother John was murdered while US president and his brother Bobby was murdered before he could run for the White House.
The man who became Britain's first chat show megastar has died at 74. Born into a family of wealthy Lancashire mill owners, he emerged from the education system with a single O-Level and bounced around the job market, acquiring a wife and a family along the way. Then he joined the radio pirates aboard the MV Caroline as a disk jockey.
If you haven't heard about the exploding iPods, which can leap 10 feet into the air when they go off and cause burns to anyone wearing them, it's because Apple has been intimidating their owners into keeping quiet if they want their money back.

It cost the poor old British taxpayer £800 million to build but Trinity College, Cantab, which wants to buy it, values the former Millennium Dome at just £20 million. Sounds like the taxpayer got typical New Labour value for money out of the deal.

The world's most famous toolbag (backpack-size, cost the US taxpayer $100,000), which was lost during a space walk by astronaut Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper last November, was dragged down deep enough into the Earth's atmosphere to cause it to burn up over Mexico at the beginning of this month.

The Home Office says its ID cards are officially "unforgeable" because of the security measures deployed in the on-card chip. The Daily Mail's expert cloned one of them in 12 minutes. Another expert was able to crack the encryption on the data, change it and 'relock' the data so that a card reader would accept it as genuine.
On the day the supermarket closed, Romiley's Virgin Media broadband was out of action until the afternoon. At getting on for teatime, just for the hell of it, one of the VM customers did a line speed test and got around 9400 kbits/second, which isn't too bad for a 2-meg line. So the upgrade to 10 mbps, promised for July, has finally arrived.
The management of Oxford airport is hoping to scam idiots in the 'business community'. The marketing manager is trying to sell it as a London satellite airport even though it's a good 50 miles from central London. His target appears to be private business flights carrying passengers who get too stoned on the in-flight hospitality to notice a post-flight drive of an hour an a half to get to their meeting.

The Russians have been giving the US Navy something to do by sailing a pair of nuclear submarines along the borderlands of international waters. Naval tracking stations on America's east coast got a bit of a thrill before the subs headed on towards Cuba. The nuclear subs were of the Acula class (designed by the famous Dr. Acula) but not armed with nuclear weapons.

The radiation from electrical wiring acts as the ultimate attractor for these highly social ants, which combine with other colonies to form mega-clumps instead of fighting them to the death. Flash mobs of Asian ants have already caused power failures, with a serious fire risk, by embracing the wiring in homes in the south of England, and it's only a matter of time before there are enough of them around to take out a medium-size power station.
Newly sworn-in President DinnerJacket of Iran took time out to issue a personal message to Gordon Brown as a gesture of solidarity between illegitimate rulers. G. Brown became prime minister of Britain without the endorsement of a general election. Mr. DinnerJacket actually had an election but he rigged the result.
