There is still no F in Brexit thanks to the Westminster Wonders

 WEEK 1 

Worth a try
The Labour party is expected to defuse the anti-Semitism row, which is deflecting so much attention from its good works [? Ed.], by writing it in to the party constitution to make it part of the rules, compulsory and normal. The Corbynites are hoping to bamboozle the residual Bliarites with a "line in the sand" situation.

More history to relearn
Prince Albert is in trouble with the wimminist lobby for doing too much. He spent too much time getting Queen Victoria pregnant and doing things like organizing the Great Exhibition of 1851 and not enuf time polishing his wife's shoes and being a subservient consort.

Discrimination still rulz, OK!
If you're fit and healthy and not non-white and not a sexual deviant and not disabled and not obviously disadvantaged in any way, it can take an industrial tribunal to get you in to the Cheshire Constabulary these days.
    'We do this with the best of intentions', is the excuse from the Cheshire police farce. 'And fail to realize it will have the worst of consequences for the people paying our wages,' the spokeswoman forgot to add.

Far Queue symbol The Islamist tendency, especially the ones who feel entitled to turn violent, are in trouble for daring to objecting to government attempts to promote homosexuality in primary schools.
reader comment“They'll be really narked when O.J. get in and makes it compulsory!” T.L.

bullet The latest wonder diet—eat anything you like but just eat less than you normally would.

bulletTopic for a Ph.D. thesis: Compare & contrast Brexit with the First American Civil War of Independence in the 18th century.

Far Queue symbol The latest claim from a weirdo expert @ the UNO's Department of Dottiness is that J. Assange was tortured during most of his seven-year away break in the Ecuadorian embassy. Those South Americans, eh!

A fairly mild spell of weather has let the National Grid do without coal-fired power stations for a fortnight. BFD! The Nation's needs were met using gas (mainly), nuclear, electricity generated from wood chips imported from the United States with a falsified carbon footprint, imports and the unreliables—wind and solar, which don't work when the wind don't blow and the sun don't shine and cost the poor old taxpayer money if the inconsiderate wind blows too hard.

Far Queue symbol The French are getting really serious about smoking this month—it will be banned on some of the country's beaches as well as in city green spaces.

Far Queue symbol Italy is having yet another budget dispute with the EbloodyU and doing some of the usual obfuscation to avoid paying heavy fines the country can't afford.

Oh, yes, there was a football match somewhere abroad . . .
A penalty for hand-ball in the first 30 seconds of the Champions' League final? Crumbs! Confirmed by the replay, Liverpool one-nil up on Spurs and the team that scores first has a record of winning.
    We had to wait for the 38th minute before anyone (Liverpool) fired another shot at a goal. Spurs put the ball over the Liverpool crossbar and into the car park a couple of times in the first half.
    A close miss in the 69th minute by Liverpool. Two tries at goal in the 80th minute by Spurs. No cigar from a good Spurs free kick after 84 minutes. No, it was Liverpool who sealed the deal after 87 minutes with another goal.
    A dive in the Liverpool penalty area in time added on failed to impress the ref and Liverpool became the top dogs in Europe again, winning 2-0.

reader comment“Corbyn's sour grapes over President Trump saying he likes Boris is entirely unacceptable interference in our democracy. Choosing the next Tory leader is nothing to do with Corbyn.” R.W.

Far Queue symbol The woman hoping to replace Cobblers to Cable as the Liberals' leader thinks that the country is crying out for a movement which will put the British nation and its interests last and not listen to what the people want.
    Someone who could end up in court for misconduct in a public office? Unlike B. Johnson, of course, who wasn't acting in a public-office capacity when promoting Brexit during referendum.

Save the world? Nah!
Who would pay £19,000 for a gadget the size of a washing machine, which burns organic waste to provide heating? Especially if you have to scare up 6-12 pounds weight of waste every day to produce 40% of the average home's hot water requirements.
reader comment“It sounds typical of all those wonderful gadgets which are more trouble than they are worth and fodder for mugs with more money than sense.” P.N.
reader comment“The gadget conjures up visions of people raiding their neighbours' bins in search of enough waste to get the water hot enough for a family of five to have baths/showers!” T.C.

bulletThe Bad News of the moment: is that there's always going to be something people die off. With smoking on the decline, o'besity is its successor. And after o'besity, well, the experts are sure to think of something else.

bullet Getting tough over Mexico's porous borders has set stock markets quivering and President Trump's approval rating soaring.

bullet Football referees are worried about the loudness of their whistles and afraid that they will make them deaf as well as blind.

Far Queue symbol The forces of evolution seem to be winning in Scotland, where the Labour party is heading for Xtinction and too busy with internal battles to notice.

Bin CorbynTime for a reckoning
reader comment“President Trump seems to have got the number of London's cosmetic mayor as well as those of other lefty loonies in his opening announcement on the way to his three-day state visit.” L.E.
reader comment“What we need to know is whether there will be enough prison places for the global warming fraudsters when they start sending people in a public-sector job to gaol for misconduct in a public office by lying to the Great British Public.” R.W.
reader comment“That's after they've locked up all the politicians and their minions and the people they're helping to steal from the taxpayer for all the other lies, of course.” P.G.

Skull Exits
Despite Brexit, Labour's enforced austerity and Labour moaning, there seems to be plenty of dosh sloshing around. Hence a huge increase in the amount of dosh that young people have been spending on drugs. Hence hospital admissions for drug abuse increasing fourfold since 2000.

Cheeky buggers!
Surprise! Secret societies which the government has proscribed as a threat to the security of the nation are taking no bloody notice and carrying on recruiting new members and holding meetings for the comrades.

Far Queue symbol Trade unions are checking to see if they can mug UEFA if the mega-rich football organization exploits unpaid labour during the Euro 2020 competition instead of paying the going rate for the jobs done.

On yer bike, mate!
How do you divorce the ghost of a pirate, who died 300 years ago? The woman, who claimed the 'marriage' went off in 2016 and turned nasty, chose to resort to an exorcist rather than the courts to get the job done.
reader comment“Non-consummation? That would have worked.” L.E.

Arteries okay, kidneys floating?
Artery experts reckon it's safe to drink 25 cups of coffee per day without risking damage to them. We're now waiting for the views of kidney experts on making them process 5½-6 litres of extra fluid per day.

Typical EbloodyU—me, me, me and grab, grab, grab
The soon to be dismissed EbloodyC president, J.-C. Druncker, is moaning because he doesn't get a free mansion to infest. That's despite being paid £350K plus all the perks and extra benefits. Even though he's not a proper president of a country, he thinks he should have a presidential palace. And, no doubt, a presidential wine cellar of epic proportions paid for by other people.

So much for three score years and ten
It is truly amazing how many old blokes who survived the D-Day and subsequent campaigns are still around to mark the 75th anniversary of the landings in Normandy, given that they are all in their 10th or 11th decade. They really bred them tough in the tough old inter-war years. They have to be to stand up to all the messing about to which they are subjected by posturing politicians.

Nasty is as nasty does
Far Queue symbol The Labour party is finding it impossible to pick candidates for political jobs who do not have solid anti-Semitic credentials or an unfortunate past. So it has decided to give up trying.
reader comment“Same with candidates who are sex pests. If they have the right connections, family or otherwise, there's no suspension, no investigation and Labour just shrugs its collective shoulders.” D.P.
reader comment“They have the advantage of knowing that no matter how nasty and evil they get, they'll never be sent to gaol because the current policy of the Tories is to let nasty bastards out of gaol as soon as possible on licence, and not put them back inside if they breach the terms of the licence.” B.N.
reader comment“And the advantage of knowing Labour would do exactly the same if the country ever went collectively insane enough to vote them into office.” V.B.
reader comment“The Tories in the pocket of WahWey—any more disgraceful than New Labour being in everyone's pocket?” R.W.

Majority verdict
What the opinion polls are telling us at the moment is that there is a growing feeling in the country that it doesn't matter what sort of Brexit we have (or Bremain) because our current collection of politicians, who have been faffing around for the last three years, will fuck it up no matter what form it takes.

Far Queue symbol Former prime monster John Major is to blame for depriving of compensation, the people who were cynically and knowingly given contaminated blood products by the NHS.

Welcome to the 21st century
A murderer—a bloke claiming to be a woman—gets himself sent to a women's prison and starts shagging one of the real female inmates. The governor is reported to have 'gone up the wall' on being told. Which raises embarrassing questions about the governor's competence, at the very least, for not anticipating this outcome.

Even more from the experts
If you're clever enough to get into Eton, the education you get, in terms of exam grades, will be no better than what you would have had at a state sector comprehensive, which doesn't charge £43K per year.
    But you probably meet a better class of Flashman at Eton.

Standing out from the crowd
In an era when political parties are defined by what outsiders claim they don't like—all Jews in the case of Labour and Islamist terrorism supporters in the case of the Tories—the Liberals are different.
    They are defined as the party which doesn't mind having gropers and child molesters in its ranks.

Pointless posture
What is the point of parking some BBC stooge (well) outside Buck House at 11 p.m.? No one cares that he's there rather than in a studio somewhere else for his voice-over.
    In reality terms, he's as absent as O.J. and Berko.
reader comment“Trump's problem is that he hasn't murdered enough people to be a pal of Corbyn, Watson, Khan and all the rest.” D.P.

Unity is strength, not diversity
reader comment“The thing to remember is that London is full of foreigners and people in hock to foreigners and BBC beauties, and not at all representative of Britain.” L.M.

Down with Diversity

The C21 Dictionary
muderate (n)
London's current mayor, to whom too much has stuck for him to be able to conceal his fundamental nastiness any longer. [see also: Corbyn, O.J.]

bullet That heat wave the forecasters were going on about but no one noticed? It was yesterday. Or maybe the day before.

Today's lesson
Roman Ackley offers advice on how to fake having read the Inspector Morse books—that's books rather than novels as there is also a collection of short stories.
    “Probably the best approach is to speculate on how much time Mr. C. Dexter wasted on tracking down the quotations used as chapter headings—seventy or even eighty of them in one case.”

reader comment“That the judge who made that ludicrous decision regarding Boris is still in a job tells us all we need to know about the state of the legal trade in Britain.” V.W.

Far Queue symbol President Trump turned down a chance to meet O.J. Corbynski during his state visit? No bloody wonder!
reader comment“Corbyn wants to change the world, but not for the better. His ambition is to steal everything and turn the population into serfs—New Labour's benefits culture on steroids. Everything—cash, land, former personal property—will become the property of the State and available to be plundered at will by Corbyn and his crooked mates.” R.W.
reader comment“He'll have found Nigel Farage much more convivial company than old misery guts Corb.” D.S.

Embrace your fate, people!
Xtinction is the new black—all gloom and doom. The snoflakes reckon gorbal warming will see them off. Boris reckons failing to deliver Brexit will wipe out the Tories.
    But in the midst of all this, we had O.J. Corbynski rabble-rousing against President Trump and looking like he was psyching himself up to invade Poland and start World War III. Which would definitely put the pesky human race on the road to o'blivion.
    But on the up side, Xtinction of humans would give The Planet a bit of peace after the explosions from the bombs die away and we all want to Save The Planet, don't we?

Land for the Many, Controlled by the Few in the Labour Party, All Taxed to the Hilt.

A wasted life?
A self-proclaimed expert on the Loch Ness monster has concluded that Nessie does not exist. Which misses the point entirely. Nessie is like God—a concept rather than an actuality—a concept which the 'expert' has clearly failed to grasp.

A concern only for the rich and Mandelsleazes
The new plastic £50 note will contain negligible amounts of tallow, which means that immigrants from the planet Vegan will be unable to consume them, as for lesser denomination notes.
    The alternative to tallow is to use palm oil, which is much more costly and drives environmentalists absolutely mental.

The D of the Day rumbles on
reader comment“It was very nice of President Trump to offer to advise the Irish teashop on building his wall along the border with Northern Ireland!” C.B.
reader comment“No doubt O.J. joined the German contingent at the D-Day eve commemoration in Portsmouth to express his solidarity with Britain's enemy back then.” W.D.
reader comment“Did miserable old Corby actually turn up at the D-Day event? Or did he refuse to be associated with Tory triumphalism over a British victory?” N.M.
reader comment“Oh, dear! Labour's carnival of raspberry blowing on Tuesday was pretty much rained off. Only the most rabid storm troopers turned up to make up in viciousness for lack of numbers.” L.H.G.
reader comment“Labour is the party of balance. Its zero-tolerance policy on racialism and sexual assaults is balanced by a zero-action policy on investigations.” L.E.
reader comment“Total and utter surprise that Labour wasn't washing its hair during the D-Day commemoration to avoid having to commit to Democracy, Tolerance and the Rule of Law.” J.S.
reader comment“Don't let's be Beastly to the Germans. It's true that enough of them swallowed Nazism to let Hitler & Co. take power for 12 years. But right here, enough people swallowed New Labour to give Tony B. Liar & Co. 13 years in charge. And, no doubt, O.J. is hoping to get his poisonous creed swallowed in a sufficient dose.” R.W.
reader comment“Of course, the Germans were at the D-Day do. There wouldn't have been a D-Day without them!” A.G.

Atheists triumphant
The Democrats in America are pursuing a vigorous deGodifying agenda in public life. The latest brainstorm is to remove “so help me God” from the U.S. House of Representatives oath, which witnesses must take when testifying before those congressional committees which are currently under Democrap control.

bulletMuch to the surprise of everyone, the Mexican president is making noises about plugging his borders to avoid the steadily increasing tariffs, which President Trump made noises about precisely to provoke this response..

Recycled scam
Rejected presidential candidate A. Gore became a self-appointed expert on global warming and made a fortune out of carbon trading schemes. Rejected presidential candidate H. Clinton is currently going down the same road, even though she will acquire the carbon footprint of a medium-size country from all the flying and conferencing and self-promotion involved.

Sad, but it's not a perfect world
A Capitalist makes money by being inventive and exploiting weaknesses in the system and people.
A Communist makes money by killing people and robbing the corpses.
If you don't approve, blame God. Or blame O.J. Corbynski, who thinks he's God.

Bad people go crazy
According to a criminal psychologist, it is perfectly normal to want to kill one's boss, or someone else in a position of authority, or even anyone at all, if you have had a bad hair day.
    We are now awaiting a rival expert opinion from a psychology expert who isn't a criminal.
A study in the US has found that fantasizing about acts of violence is bad for one's mental health. We're now waiting for the results of the study which proves the exact opposite.

Public health in action
The NHS official nanny, Dame S. Davies, has come up with the bright idea of making NHS staff who refuse to have a free-to-them flu jab wear a badge to let customers choose to avoid contact with them.

The Boris-bashing attempt over the Brexit bus has been thrown out of the High Court. Let us hope that the Lord Chancellor does the same to the judge, who let the time be wasted.

Blinding flash of revelation
People have been going to gaol for millions of years and getting out again. But it has taken the experts until this year to work out that releasing bad guys (and gals) on a Friday, knowing that support services will be closed over the weekend, shoves them back into temptation. And then back into gaol. Which keeps the prison industry going, of course.

Here's a wonderful story!
It seems that the eruption of Indonesia's Mount Tamora in 1815 put so much ash into the atmosphere that 1816 was officially The Year Without A Summer, crops failed and there was famine and a lack of horses. Cue Baron Karl Von Drais inventing a prototype of the bicycle to allow people to get around.
    The device didn't have pedals and it was propelled by foot-power, like the hobby/dandy horse. Even though the inventor could manage 4½ km/hour on his Laufmachine, not many people were interested in it—mainly because the roads were in a terrible state and having to push the thing uphill was a pain.
    Worse, things returned to normal in 1817 and there were horses again in abundance.

Boris rumbles on . . .
Despite getting 114 million votes in the first round of the Tory leadership race, the Anyone But Boris lobby is still determined to Brexit him.
    It has been calculated that they would need to persuade 153,206 members of the Conservative & Unionist Party to quit to have any hope of doing it with a façade of legitimacy.
reader comment“Was that really only the first round of voting for the next Tory leader? The whole thing seems to have been dragging on for ages. But weeding out the 'absolutely no hope in this or any other universe' candidates to get down to 10 of them didn't count as a round, apparently.” M.R.
reader comment“What a bog-up that vote was. Mainly because of the ridiculous threshold for elimination—just 5½% of the 313 Tory MPs. If they'd made it 15% or 47 votes, that would have got the whole thing done in one foul swoop. And if they'd made the threshold 20% or 63 votes, that would have concentrated minds even more thoroughly.” R.W.
reader comment“Vajid Javid's problem is that he behaves too much like a spiv to be mistaken for someone with authority and gravitas.” E.P.

Flying without the danger? Maybe!
Skydiving simulators, popular in the United States, have come Spain. Well, there's one in the village of Campillos in Malaga province.
    Most of the ones in the States have a safety cage to contain the floater in the blast zone above a vertically mounted wind generator. There is no safety cage visible in photographs used to promote the one in Spain, which means that the instructor who accompanies each flyer, @ €60 a pop, needs to be bloody good at the job.

 WEEK 2 

You just knew this would happen
The proposal of a Straight Pride Parade in Boston provoked howls of outrage on anti-social meeja from the mayor, the acting community and the algae boutique tendency. It took the filing of a discrimination complaint against the city; and the city's lawyers advising the city fathers that they were on a hiding to nothing; to force the bigots to shrink back into their holes.
reader comment“I wonder if there's any truth to the story that a Short-Sighted Pride Parade ended up in the harbour where the tea was dumped by the revenue dodgers as a protest against a tax CUT, which would cut their profit margin.” R.W.

Spot the weasel word
No asteroids have been detected which are on a collision course with Earth in the next 100 years, the experts tell us.
    But all the rocks out there haven't been charted and Jupiter's proximity to the Asteroid Belt and all that gravity means that orbits can change.
    Collisions also change orbits. And the arrival of cosmic visitors like comets. Thus there is still a chance that The Planet will be saved from humans in the next 10 decades.

Forward into the new century [like backward is an option Ed.]
What to do with the old Pacer trains? which are being put out to grass after centuries of faithful service (it seems like). One suggestion is to put them out to grass literally—deposit them in the equivalent of an American trailer park and convert them into residences for the citizens of the Northern Poorhouse.

bullet Official! Britain is now so prosperous that 10% of the population are so unworried about being ripped off that they never use cash.

Trump—the best ever
President Trump's state visit to Britain was wonderful. It was easily the best visit every by a foreign head of state. Xcluding O.J. Corbynski from the main events is seen as contributing significantly to the success of the visit.

Far Queue symbol London's stone cold loser of a mayor thinks that everyone will fall over and worship him if he imposes a 20 mph speed limit on an area where the average traffic speed is 7 mph on a good day.
reader comment“Maybe he should be limited to 20 minutes of meeja access per month to make sure he has something worth saying before he opens his gob.” C.R.

bulletToday's Joke: Wolfie Corbynski knows he'll be in 10 Downing Street quite soon—he's just applied for a job as a cleaner and he's pals with the relevant union boss.

reader comment“The big mystery about the D-Day Do's could be why it took 75 years to erect a memorial to the troops who arrived in France on June 6th in 1944 to begin liberating Europe from the Nazis.
    “But that's how long it took to convince our French 'allies' that the monument would not be a danger to the tourist trade in Normandy.” R.W.

Tuff Tactics Triumph
President Trump's threat to impose ascending tariffs on Mexican goods if the government there failed to do something about its porous borders has worked. Mexico is now promising to take strong measures and the tariffs are off the table. For the moment. The ball is now in Mexico's court.

Still with Trump
The current American president has improved relations with every single one of his nation's allies, repairing the damage caused by previous president B. O'Bummer, whose efforts to appease Iran, Russia and other enemies alienated nations which are traditionally friendly to the United States.

All too predictable
A former Member of the Scottish Parliament, who stole over £25,000 from pro-independence groups to spend on personal frivolities, was sent to gaol for 18 months. [Probably 6 months tops actual time served. Ed.] But the wimmin from whom the cash was stolen are up in arms.
    Why? Because the thief is a woman and they don't think female criminals should go to gaol. So much for equality for the sexes.

Starting from pole position, S. Vettel (German) was hoping to end the Ferrari F1 win drought. Shock, horror! though. He went off the track, did some grass-tracking back on to the course and forced Louie Samilton (British) to stand on his brakes.
    Vettel was first across the finishing line but he had collected a 5-second time penalty for his Schumacher Manoeuvre and had to settle for second place behind the British driver, who was only a second or so behind him.
   The blue air around his Ferrari during the slow-down lap confirmed that Vettel was mightily MPD.

How to lie by telling only selected bitz of the truth
600 plant species have become Xtinct in the last 250 years, the experts reckon, and an unknown number have come and gone in the same time period.
    This revelation was accompanied by some guff about how plants put oxygen into the atmosphere, implying that we're all going to be gasping for breath very shortly. [Apart from the incredibly rich and MPs, of course. Ed.]
    Curiously, there was nothing at all on how many oxygen-producing new species have appeared to fill the niches created in the last 250 years but, of course, that's not something that fits in with the Warmists' agenda.

CFL logo Canadians are supposed to be really nice people. Which makes it all the more strange that their football league, the CFL, decided that it was necessary to include discretionary penalties of the loss of 25 yards of territory for extreme crimes as an alternative to the previous maximum loss of 15 yards.
    All became clear on the opening day of the 2019 season, when the Hamilton Tiger-Cats gave up 2 of the ultraviolence penalties and gifted the visiting Saskatchewan Roughriders a touchdown from their first drive.
    But the Cats managed to send the visitors' starting quarterback to the locker room with a concussion after just three plays. And went on to batter the second string QB out of the match on the way to their victory.

    Oh, Jeremy Corbyn, what shall I do?
    I wanted someone sensible but ended up with you!

bullet People who went to the best schools still dominate in the top jobs, the experts have been reassured to find. Which is as it should be despite all the current diversity crap.

British Muttonhead Association
Calling all BMA doctors—if you don't co-operate with charging fees to foreign health tourists, don't expect to be paid for what you do. If you want to wave a virtue flag, you can bloody well do it on your own time.

No one is faster than a speeding Popeye
Athletes who can manage to scoff 9 lbs of spinach per day could gain a performance-enhancing boost of ecdysterone, the experts have decided. Which is why the World Anti-Doping Agency wants capsules containing the same amount of the extracted plant hormone to be banned.

Far Queue symbol The Warmists aren't daring to claim that the currently expected 'Saharan plume' heat wave is due to man-made gorbal warming, which they falsely claim they can prevent, but everyone knows they'd love to.

Teutonic tactic
Supermarkets in Germany have come up with a beezer wheeze to boost beer sales. The plan involves persuading far-Rightists to organize a music fest, getting the police to confiscate their beer from arriving music fans and getting the locals to buy up all the stocks in the supermarket to prevent the far-Rightists from restocking and lingering.
reader comment“From the amount of shaking that the German Chancellor, Angular Mherkel, is doing at the moment, we can make a pretty good guess at where the confishcaked beer is going!” R.W.

tick symbol According to the Social Metrics Commission, the national overall poverty rate has slumped from 35.5% a decade ago, when Gordon F. Broon was PM of a Labour government, to 22% now.
    O.J. Corbynski intends to put this right and reach at least 50% over the course of his first Parliament.

Health professionals more interested in ripping off the taxpayer and talking in circles than in doctoring?
The decision of the BMA to play the race card in favour of health tourists freeloading on the NHS proves that even a complete idiot can get a medical degree. And then the Doctors For Freeloaders start moaning about a lack of resources.
    No bloody wonder!

bullet Shock, horror! A nation stunned. The other Jeremy isn't ashamed bo being a multi-millionaire through his own efforts.

bulletQ: How do you get out of housework and other domestic obligations?
bulletA: Dash off to the police and make a complaint of controlling behaviour to get your wife or other live-in skivvy busted and hauled into court and ordered to stop persecuting you.

Socialist ruin
Corbynites running local government have failed to collect £1 BILLION of the amount of Council Tax due last year. But hey, as long as their wages and pensions are paid, what the hell? They can always blame their uselessness on The Tory Cutz

bullet The investigators sifting through the ashes in Paris which used to be Notre Dame cathedral have failed to find a smoking cigarette end to blame for the fire.

bullet Despite all the alarmism further south, it's not going to get wonderfully warm Up North this weekend.

bullet The Spanish have come up with a novel means to start wildfires as the Europeon mainland bakes in a Saharan Plume—spontaneous chicken-manure combustion.
   The fire caused by a chicken farm's waste is expected to devastate 20,000 hectares in north-eastern Catalonia but the Asco nuclear plant, which is several kilometres away, is said not to be at risk because the wind is blowing away from the plant, which is on the far side of a river anyway.

Far Queue symbol The Bremoaner Broadcasting Cult has been caught in the act of faking news by tampering with an alleged documentary featuring Tory leadership candidate B. Johnson.

bullet Archaeologists in Kurdistan/Iraq are quite happy with the local weather as it has given them a chance to explore the ruins of a 3,400-year-old palace, which has emerged from the drought-hit Mosul Dam reservoir. The site was spotted back in 2010 but the fossickers have had to wait almost a decade to get their hands on it.

 WEEK 5 

Not just Bremoaners
The experts have been investigating British Whinge Culture and found that Millennial Snoflakes are the champions, moaning about everything conceivable for some 15,000 minutes/year. [No sugar, Shirley! Ed.]
    Women find more to grouse about that men and Olympic standard whingers will spend 9% of their whinge quota going on about other people's moans.

bullet The total amount of taxpayers' money blown as a result of fraud and blunders by benefits staff rose £300 MILLION last year to a world record £4 BILLION. Something else to thank the Corbynists in and out of the civil service for?

bullet Are there any cigarettes which are not king or superking size? It would appear that people are pretending to smoke less by consuming fewer cigarettes but actually smoking bigger ones.

CFL logo Penalties on the Eskimos was the story of the first quarter of their match in Winnipeg. No touchdowns in the first half for the visitors but they reached 12-14, thanks to their kicker, after two quarters.
    More bad Esks in Q3 and Swiss Cheese defence. They had twice as much offence as the Blue Bombers but the home team could score majors and hold the visitors to field goals. The Esks had a chance to get level at the end but two dropped passes left them 21-28 down with the ball in the hands of the Bombers with a minute left.
    This being the Canadian Drama League, the Bombers promptly fumbled the ball away on their first play!! More chances for the Eskimos, more passes going astray to shagged out receivers, and the Bombers hung on for their 2nd win of the season.

bullet Corbyn Labour has decided that it has been too apologetic over its endemic anti-Semitism and there will be no more of it in the future. [That's apologies. Ed.]

bullet Vegan mush with strawberries instead of real cream? No thanks!

bullet Looks like the Tories are starting to see the other Jeremy as a much safer pair of hands than Boris.

Okay, it's a swindle but that's not anything that bothers the Warmists
The British Weather Bureau is looking for the biggest area of tarmac in the south of England. Why? To put a thermometer at the centre of it in an attempt to beat the highest temperature ever recorded in June—35.6 deg.C in 1976.
    The BWB is trying to put one over on the French, who are claiming a highest temperature since official records began there. But as the French didn't start their official records until 1947, they don't exactly have much history to be alarmist about.

bullet Surprise! The experts have decided that the people who blow £1 BILLION/year on fish oil and vitamin supplements to boost their brainpower are out of their minds. The stuff has no effect what so ever.

A failure of legal imagination
The judge in a £2 million divorce case of utterly ridiculous proportions has missed an opportunity to make a truly splendid ruling. When asked to decide who gets a pair of curtains, he failed miserably to award the warring couple one each.

bulletThe Church of England has appointed its first black female bishop. Wot next? Algae boutique Indian? Chinese? How many virtue flags are there to wave?

bullet The hottest June day in the whole history of the universe (allegedly) was sunny Up North to about 4 p.m. Then clouds arrived to return things to normal. We even had a few drops of rain as 6 p.m. approached. Then the sun reappeared.

CFL logo Friday Nite Football and will any of the Als get out of Hamilton alive? They had the best of the scoreless first quarter. The Cats woke up in Q2, led by Speedy B, 3-15 with a minute to go to half time, the Cats at the Montreal 1 and held out of the goal on 3 tries!
    The Tigercats started Q3 with a 75-yard touchdown play and marched on. 10-41 final and 6 sacks on Adams and his back-up after the Als' starting quarterback was killed. Can't wait for the Stampeders to roll in to Hamilton in week 5.

bulletWhile Weather Control was trying to rig a new world record for the June temperature in Southern England, Scotland and Up North were being blasted by lightning. Eye off the ball, chaps.

Different kind of action in Holland
linked motorbike wheels Unusually, the riders managed to stay on their bikes in the Dutch Moto3 race, despite tight bunch racing; until about half way. Basher Binder went up from 25 to join the leaders and caused some mayhem. The Scottish guy, McPhee, also drove from the back to the front-runners. Nothing like this in F1!
    There was a 4-bike crash with 6 laps to go, and Binder was gone a couple of laps later, which spared the stewards the trouble of giving him a penalty for multiple assaults.
    Bikes flying in to the kitty litter in Moto2 as the British guy, Sam Lowes, reached the front; only to be bashed off the track at half-way. Just one of many departures. Alex Marquez was done in with a couple of laps to go and only 18/29 riders finished.
    MotoGP was much more mannered and cerebral. Marc Marquez couldn't get the better of Viñales and chose to settle for 2nd place and extend his championship lead.

Too busy moaning to do anything useful
We keep hearing woeful forecasts of more and more wildfires ravaging the countryside due to gorbal warming. No mention of planning for this future, though; such as by creating fire breaks in large areas of woodland and moorland and controlled burn-off of litter.

No longer possible
A bloke who has prised merchandising rights to Carry On stuff loose from the dead grip of ITV is planning to make more of them a generation after the last one hit cinemas.
    One small problem; all the Carry On big names are dead or in retirement. One big problem; now that vexatious minorities have so big a say in the entertainment biz, the films can't help but be neutered shadows of the originals, and a total waste of time.

Below the line mission statement: Some of the above is true.
    We are constantly exposed to dodgy conclusions drawn from dodgy data by 'experts', especially those found in the world of politics and especially those at the Treasury and in opposition. Some of us civilians at BFN like to join in to let them know that anyone can do it and we ain't impressed by their efforts.
