zombie humbugThere is still no F in Brexit thanks to the Westminster Wonders
—but Prime Monster Boris is doing his best to ram it up the humbuggers!
Lord Farage of Brexit if Nigel does the decent thing?

 WEEK 1 

ZomkinLet us not forget that yesterday was Bollocks to Berko Day!!
A nation rejoices!
Na, na, naaa-na, na, na, naaa-na, hey, hey, hey, go-oo-od-bye!

reader comment“Maybe we can make the Monday nearest to October 31st the official Bollocks to Berko Bank Holiday to give everyone who's in the wealth-creation sector a break in the long national holiday drought between August and December.” G.I.
reader comment“If there's any whingeing about too many bonk holidays, we could always abolish the May Day one, which is totally superfluous, given its proximity to Easter and the Spring BH.” K.M.

bulletQ: When is a pair of underpants worth $25M?
bulletA: When they lead to the termination of the head of a terrorist gang thanks to a mole who offered them as evidence of identification.

Is there something about London which rots the brain?
We have abundant evidence that the people put in charge of the Metropolitan police are incapable of both good judgement and good sense such that the lives of innocent people are trashed by their neglect and people can even end up dead.
   The same applies to the Fire Brigade and as for that bunch of zombie humbugs @ the Palace of Westmonster . . .
reader comment“No doubt, if they're ever brought to book [wild laughter, Ed.], they will claim to be victims of pollution and their lawyers will demand HUGE amounts of compenbloodysation in addition to being allowed to retire early on a HUGE, if undeserved, pension.” L.E.
reader comment“Let us not forget all the local council members and council officers who put good sense on hold when at work. Mainly Labour but not exclusively.” S.V.

Pollock Vindicated
The American (piss-)artist J. Pollock's action paintings were made with skill and purpose, the Xperts have finally concluded. They have genuine visual complexity created by design rather than as an accidental consequence of chucking paint at a canvas at random, which is something which chimps, elephants and pretentious gits can do.
reader comment“No doubt whoever it was who paid $200M for No. 17A is feeling vindicated too.” R.W.

cross symbol Criminals attempting to smuggle drugs ashore @ Florida's coastline hit on the idea of painting their semi-submersible boat green. Presumably in the hope that the US Coast Guard would assume from the colour that they were saving The Planet, not trying to exploit the pesky and unwanted humans living on it.

Bonfire of the Remoaners
Tory turncoats who betrayed their party to frustrate Brexit are abandoning politics to follow the rash of Bliarite Labour MPs, who sashayed into the public sector to cash in. There's always some mug who will toss a company's cash at a has-been.

Seasonal Disorder?
The Gits have taken over @ Sheffield university, where wearing a Halloween sombrero was banned because it's racist and mocks and demeans and insults the Mexican race and their disabilities. Which is total bollocks.
reader comment“Especially the notion that only disabled people wear sombreros. I've seen lots of perfectly able-bodied banditos wearing them in films.” M.G.
reader comment“Anyone remember when people went to university to learn real stuff which might actually be useful in life in the real world?” C.P.

Those with most to hide shout loudest
The fake news industry is struggling to keep up with the demands of Princess Mhegan and her cohort of female MPs, who are ignoring protocol to confect outrage on an industrial scale as part of their agenda for state control of the news meeja and suppression of reports of their own shameful exploits and crimes against humanity.

cross symbol Motorists are such unreliable idiots that the Transport Department is considering making just thinking about a personal phone whilst driving a car; never mind using it; a criminal offence worth gaol time!
reader comment“This is probably what's at the back of all the Dash for 5G agitation—the means to put a spy camera in every car for a bank of super-Gooble-computers to monitor for evidence of personal phone activity.” G.O.

Needs must
There has been a lot of flak directed at NetFlix for providing a gadget that lets the customer zoom through a slow-developing programme at a brisk walk @ 1.25x speed, or a moderate run @ 1.5x speed.
    But if you're a Snoflake who thinks you're going to go extinct in 2030, or an oldie who doesn't expect to last that long, there's a lot to get through to get your money's worth out of life, and you can't really afford an attention span of greater than four seconds.

reader comment“If Corbynski wants to export all the rich people, who's he going to steal money from? His clients don't have any, and they rely on hand-outs from the wealthy. If O.J. cuts off their lifeline, he's liable to end up strung up on a lamp post before he's settled in @ 10 Downing Street.” C.R.

Moderated enthusiasm
Are we knocked out by the prospect of a Bridget Riley retrospective? With reservations. The optical movements, which she designed and got underlings to paint, are great. The strips, not so much. Same with the rhomboids.
reader comment“Same with the Seurat pastiches.” R.W.

zombie humbugPay more attention in future!
There's someone in Chorley who actually thinks that the coming general election will elect MPs who think they are servants of the public. Clearly someone who has failed to notice what lying, tricky humbuggers MPs really are.
reader comment“Clearly a customers for the yellow van and the men in white coats!” C.B.

Still too big to go bust, or Begging bowl to be out-thrust again
The banks are going to go bust again. They are having to pay out so much for their PPI scams and the predations of scammers that there will be no cash left after they've paid the enormous wages of the managers and directors who let all this happen.

Not that it matters, but . . .
Help! We've been getting a month's rain in a day so often recently that those who haven't been paying close enough attention have lost track of where we are. Are we still getting rain from 2020's quota, or have we slipped over into 2021's quota?

Fraud condoned
As usual, the police and the electoral authorities will take no action against students who register to vote at their parents' home and register another vote where they are studying; as long as they promise to vote Labour.

Far Queue symbol A town with lots of white buildings can no longer be called the Little White Town as the name upsets racial bigots.

CFL logo Friday Night Football: the Als in Ottawa, where the pitch still looks v. tatty. A kick off rouge for MTL, who delivered a quick 2 & gone to the Redblacks. Adams took the Als to a 1st & goal, and fired a TD pass to Lewis. Another rouge from the kick off, 9-0. The RBs got moving to a FG after 13 minutes, 9-3.
    Wieneke took a TD pass 3 minutes in to Q2, 16-3. Another FG for the RBs after 7 minutes, 16-6. The Als were sacked out of FG range and punted for a single. They had to give up a safety in the 14th minute, 17-8. The RBs zoomed to FG range; a sack but Ward was accurate from 47 yards, 17-11.
    Shilz on for the Als, a TD for MTL 19 three minutes in to Q3 and another rouge from the kick off, 25-11. The RBs marched to a TD pass to Harris? Down at the 1, TD for Jennings instead, 25-18. The Als kicked a FG after 13 minutes, 28-18.
    DPI in goal by the Als in Q4 put the RBs at their 1, another TD for Jennings, the convert missed and was nearly returned for 2 the other way! 28-24. A 35-yard sprint by Williams after 7 minutes, 35-24. Ward missed another RB FG try. A goal-line stand by the Als went pear-shaped. What sort of idiot lines up with both hands past the white line? TD for Jennings, +2, 35-32 with 1:41 left. The Als punted but a pick-6 by Murray right away put the game away, 42-32 final.

The psychology of Xmas
Clumsily wrapped presents create low expectations and increase the delight factor if they contain something good. Elegantly wrapped parcels create high expectations and something good in them is no more than what is expected.

Dirty-pool politics, not public safety
There is a world of difference between earth tremors due to fracking which are higher than those legally permitted, and earth tremors which can actually be felt by people on the surface, and also earth tremors which cause structural damage. Mainly because the legally permitted level has been set deliberately very low to make sure the fracking industry can't operate in the UK to pander to the global warming fraudsters. We're earthquake experts here in Romiley and we know.

Wee Burney ZombieOne woman’s vanity or a few financial facts of life
1. As a member of the UK, Scots get a subsidy from English taxpayers of close to £2K per head and an independent Scotland will not be entitled to this sub.
    2. As a member of the UK, which is a member pro-tem of the EbloodyU, the Scots are entitled to EbloodyU grants. The EbloodyU is not a wealth-creating organization and these handouts are cash from English taxpayers LESS the admin fees skimmed off by the EbloodyU.
    3. As a non-member of the UK, an independent Scotland will not be a member of the EbloodyU and all grants from this source will dry up.
    4. Without the above direct and indirect subsidies from English taxpayers, will the Scots be willing to take a drastic cut in living standards to make Wee Burney Sturgeon the first president of Scotland?
    5. If they are, we in England will applaud their sacrifice and enjoy spending the cash which doesn't go north to Scotland and south to the EbloodyU. And if we can stop the leaks west to Wales and Northern Ireland . . . whooooh!

Look after it now!
The idiot who left a 310-year-old violin worth a quarter of a million quid on a train has been reunited with his treasure. He got it back at a police-observed handover in a supermarket car park. The bloke who strolled off with the abandoned fiddle announced that he had made a mistake. Presumably, in thinking that he could get away with an act of theft of lost property of such rarity and high value.

cross symbol The BBC is starting to become embarrassed by the antics of its non-white female staff, who think they have a divine right to be rude to visitors of whom they don't approve, especially if they are male and white. Even more embarrassing for the Beeb are the leaks about the subsequent apologies, which BBC managers had to make to the offended visitors.

Fresh start
Catologists have given up hope of re-establishing the wildcat in Scotland. The dwindling isolated pockets of them are too full of hybrids of genuine wildcats and feral domestic animals. The Xperts are now hoping to create pure wildcat colonies in suitable stretches of woodland in England and Wales.

The Downfall of Decadence
Is the human race becoming unglued? Or there already? The upcoming generation are drama queens, who have fantasies of Xtinction, which lets them claim to be victims of their parents' generation.
    Their grandparents' generation, meanwhile, is able to throw all the blame for the state of The Planet on their children and also embrace the drama queen culture.

The only good thing about this sorry scenario is that if evil aliens turn up looking for somewhere to conquer, they'll take one look at the sorry crew on Earth and move on rapidly in search of somewhere worth oppressing.
reader comment“Such as somewhere where most of the natives don't have diabetes caused by o'besity?” R.W.

Take it or do without
The power companies have very sneakily scrapped all mechanical meters and driven their manufacturers out of business to force customers who need a replacement to be obliged to take a dodgy electronic one.

CFL logo Another Super Saturday for Week 21 and the close of the regular season. The Eskimos visited the Roughriders, who opened the scoring with a FG and picked off a bad pass to get back to FG range again. After a small riot, Thigpen went in for a TD and 0-10 after 14 minutes. The Riders missed 2 FG tries in Q2.
    In Q3, the Esks made a 3rd & inches, Daniels fired a pass 45 yards to Smith, who took a TD pass from Kilgore. The convert was blocked, 6-10. Kilgore fumbled the ball away and gave the Riders a chance to miss another FG! The Esks gave up a safety a minute later, 6-12. A TD pass to Elliott put the Esks 13-12 in front in the last minute of the quarter.
    The Riders missed another long FG try in Q4. A short one missed for a single after 7 minutes, 13-all. Lauther managed a 12-yard FG for 13-16 with 1:30 left and a pick-6 by Judge made SK 13-23 winners and the Best in the West.

Don't vote, it only encourages them
If all the parties in the coming election are offering greenwash bollocks in their manifesto, there's no real point in voting for any of them.

Far Queue symbol 7-time election loser N. Farage of the Brexit Bunch will not take the risk of being unlucky (or unwanted) an 8th time. He won't be standing as a candidate in next month's election.

CFL logo Saturday Soup #2: The Argos in Hamilton. A pick-6 by Richardson opened the Argos' account after 6 minutes. The convert missed, 6-0. The Cats fumbled away their next possession. They dodged a pick in goal thanks to a penalty and a TD run by Marshall put them 6-7 ahead in the 14th minute.
    In Q2, the Cats fielded a short punt and were held to a FG, 6-10. Bang! One play, Prukop to Smith for a TD, 13-10. Another TD for Marshall put the Cats 13-17 ahead. The Argos replied with a FG, 16-17. The Argos picked a tipped pass and a FG try went over the left post (?) for a single, 17-all.
    The Cats reached the TA 8 in Q3, only to be intercepted in goal by Darby. A punt by the Argos bounced off the TC crossbar and went in to the goal for nowt! in the 10th minute. A punt by the Cats which scored a rouge was wiped out by a penalty.
    A pick by Darby stopped the Cats in Q4. Nothing from it? The Cats were done for killing the punter but the Argos had to punt after a huge play to Gittens was wiped out by a challenge. The Cats punted for a rouge with 6 minutes left, 17-18. A FG try by the Argos after the 3MW was a dreadful miss for a single, 18-all. The holder missed the tee. The Cats battled to FG range and an 18-21 win to deliver a perfect season at home.

Far Queue symbol The Tories and Labour are making spending pledges which will make Gordon F. Broon look like a miser. Where will all the cash come from? Who knows? The Liberals have invented a Bremoan Bonus of 100 godzillion quid over the next 10 minutes, which is by far the daftest fantasy of the campaign thus far.

Far Queue symbol Some theatres are abandoning addressing the customers as 'ladies and gentlemen' in case someone who doesn't know which they are drops in.

CFL logo Finally, the Stampeders in Vancouver, where they got a FG from their opening drive. A pick by Lee left the Lions backed up and they conceded a safety, 5-0. A FG after 14 minutes put the CS 8-0 ahead. The Lions managed a FG in Q2, and the Stamps kicked one after 7 minutes, 11-3. Another after 14 minutes, 14-3.
    Bridge came on for O'Brien in Q3, but O'Brien returned after DPI in goal to score a TD, 14-10. Lotz of D, the Stamps did nothing with a fumble recovery. A scrambling Bridge threw a pick in Q4, no damage. A TD by Mayala with 3 minutes left put the game away, 21-10. BC replied with a TD for 16 but no +2, 21-16. An on-side kick was fielded by the Stamps. They had to punt but they got the ball back from an interception and ran out the clock.

Labour lying git

More do-as-I-say

bullet The government is cutting some of the cuts in sums paid to the people running local post offices by The Post Office, but not until April.

Virtue flagging?
The NHS is short of cash. Perpetually short of cash. And yet it plans to track blood donations and tell the donor where the blood was used. Which proves that no matter how short of cash the NHS is, some idiot will always come up with a way to waste it on a pointless gimmick.

reader comment“Who's next?” A.S.
reader comment“The strike is over driver-only trains, which are safe to operate, but the union sees only the loss of income from subscriptions if guards are no longer needed. That's a threat to the living standards of its officers.” O.G.

We've had more than enough of YOU, mate!
It's hardly an election calamity for Labour if someone as tainted as Corbynski's appalling deputy T. Watson quits before he's sacked. It's just one small step on a long, long road toward something resembling decency.

Far Queue symbol There appears to be a blackened thread of dishonesty running through the veganist cult if they are prepared to pay £1.75 to pretend to be eating a pork pie.

Ultimate vanishing trick
It's really Xtreme and you'd have to be really desperate to do it, but if you do a John Stonehouse and leave your clothes on a beach and arrange for one of your hands to be found in a shark's stomach, it's possible to get yourself declared legally dead.
reader comment“Alternatively, you could bribe/blackmail/intimidate the people @ the forensic laboratory into identifying someone else's hand as yours. Once it's been cremated, there's just a paper trail left rather than physical evidence.” H.P.

Well off-target judgement
Are sharks actually 'vicious' predators or are they just carnivorous animals which eat anything that crosses their path? Maybe they're really quite sensitive souls and they're maligned because they lack the capacity to say, "Sorry, mate!" before they bite your head off.
reader comment“Vicious or compassionate, you're just as dead by the time the predator has finished with you.” D.A.

The Zombie Agenda
zombie humbug According to Wee Burney, "A vote for the SNP is a vote to stop Brexit by any means possible, a vote to keep the UK in the EbloodyU with a zombie Labour Corbynski regime and a vote to take Scotland out of the UK and therefore out of the EbloodyU."

tick symbol The High Court has ruled that Xtinctionists have a divine right to get in everyone else's way and they are entitled to compenbloodysation from the police if arrested for making a nuisance of themselves. Which means that they will have cash to pay compensation to everyone who was inconvenienced by their antics and they are fair game for retaliation if protesting is outwith the law. Good!
reader comment“I think that 'surprise' is rather misplaced. It's typical of the current attitude of the judiciary towards bad behaviour. The worse it gets, the more they bust a gut to condone it to show how right-bloody-on and anti-Conservative they are.” N.T.

The defence of justifiable assault is to be removed from Scots law following complaints by MSPs, who are frequently smacked by constituents as an expression of the frustration generated by a particularly bone-headed action by someone on the public payroll.

Legal swindle frustrated
A prisoner in the United States tried to claim that he completed his life sentence when he 'died' whilst receiving emergency medical treatment in 2015. Alas, the judge refused to accept that the prisoner's heart stopping for a while and then being restarted constituted legal death. So his brief will have to come up with another fairy tale.

CFL logo Crossover Sunday, the Eskimos in Montreal and Harris is back. The Esks' opener had a fumble ruling cancelled on review and went on to a TD for Gable. Their next possession ended in a punt for a rouge, 8-0. The Als got moving and ended the quarter at the EE 4. Stanback in for a TD in Q2, 8-7.
    Gable was shoved in to the MTL goal for 15-7. Alford took the kick off through Swiss cheese for a TD, the convert missed, 15-13. The Esks made a 3rd & 1 to their 51; just!

More Green 'n' Gold Action
The Carolina Panthers visited Green Bay and Moore scored a TD from their 2nd possession. GB replied with a TD from Jones, 7-all after 12 minutes. The Panthers went ahead with a FG. The Pack forced & recovered a fumble near midfield in the 3rd minute of Q2. What a catch by Adams! Jones again, 10-14.
    The snow was getting more visible. The Panthers were sacked out of FG range with 5 minutes left. GB got the benefit of a bad penalty to make up for one inflicted on the Pack earlier, Graham went 48 yards to the CP 26, not quite a TD for him. With 2 seconds left in the half, the Pack went for a TD from the CP 1 instead of kicking a FG and got stuffed.
    The CP opened Q3 with a sack but Adams was wide open on 2nd & 26. Jones sprinted to the CP 25, and went in for a TD, 10-21. The CP survived a fumble but not a pick in the GB goal. The Pack reached FG range and no more. A kick by Crosby missed but a penalty on the Panthers gave him another go, 10-24.
    The Panthers reached the red zone in Q4, McCaffrey scored a TD, no +2, 16-24, 12 minutes left, the snow looking heavier but not landing. The next CP effort was sacked to a punt. Lots of D. The Panthers ended up with 2½ minutes to go 90 yards and score a TD + 2 to draw level. The grass was going white and the footing was treacherous.
    The snow worsened into a white-out. There's a rumour going round that the Pack held on for a home win and the Panthers were held inches short of making a 4th down near the GB goal line.

Historical Departures
November 22nd: Today is the 66th anniversary of the death of the author C.S. Lewis. And? Also the death of the author Aldous Huxley. And? Some Yank called Kennedy.

Morally plastic
A poll commissioned by the BBC has concluded that people aspire to high moral values but generally fail to maintain them. The Beeb is using this lack of enduring moral fibre in the nation at large as an excuse for its own crimes against the truth and shameless political bias against the Conservatives.

bullet If you want to be crashed in to, or run over, by a drugged-up driver rather than a drunken one, head for Hereford.

Morally contemptible
Trees in towns are now officially a wonderfully Good Thing as they protect against pollution, promote good health and cut early death rates.
    But the tree lobby is finding itself locked in a war to the death with jobsworths employed by local councils, who feel that their mission in life is to hack down every tree, bush and shrub on bogus 'elf 'n' nazi grounds.

bullet Universities will become safe zones all next week. That's safe from delivering education as the staff will be on strike for more dosh.

If it were possible to feel sympathy for one of the founders of the Xtinction zombie movement, one might feel a slight twinge for the middle-aged zombie R. Hallan.
    He has lost a book-publishing deal in Germany for daring to suggest that the Nazi campaign of extermination against Jews, Gipsies, homosexuals and others was just one of a long series of genocide campaigns in 'uman history and not a unique event in that history.
    The sucker didn't allow for the strength of the German national guilt trip.

CFL logo Grey Cup 107 in Calgary, the Tigercats vs the Blue Bombers, who picked the Cats' 3rd play but did nothing with it. Evans was sacked and fumbled to the BB at his 15, Harris in for a TD, 0-7. Two shots of Speedy B helped the Cats to a FG, 3-7 after 7 minutes. Medlock missed a FG for a rouge, 3-8. The Cats couldn't make a 3rd & 1 but they managed a 47 yard FG in the first minute of Q2, 6-8.
    The BB were using both QBs. Collards was nearly picked in the TC goal, FG, 6-11. The Cats were sacked to a punt. Harris rushed for 22 yards and caught a TD pass threaded between defenders in the TC goal, 6-18 after 9 minutes. The BB were held to a FG in the last minute of the half for 6-21.
    The BB kicked a FG 4 minutes in to Q3, 6-24. A run by Sutton got the Cats to FG range but they were stuffed on a 3rd & 1. Their next drive got a first down from a fake FG play, on to a TD for Addison, no +2, 12-24 in the 13th minute. The BB kicked a FG at 00 on the clock, 12-27.
    In Q4, more Acklin doing the job of dinged Speedy B, Demski was doing a grand job for the BB, Streveler was dinged and Harris continued to make plays. Bailey had a TD cancelled on review, FG, 12-30 with 6 minutes left. Evans was sacked and fumbled twice; the BB recovered the second @ the TC 24, FG after the 3MW, 12-30.

Sunday Nite Football was the Packers in San Francisco, where their first drive ended with a fumble to their 2 and a TD for the 49ers. Another trip to the GB red zone gave the 9ers a FG, 0-10 with 3 minutes to go in Q1. The Pack were stuffed on a 4th & 1 in Q2.
    Their defence sacked SF to a 3rd & 30 & punt. SF kicked a FG with 3 minutes to go, they scored a TD at the start of the final minute and had time to dismiss the Packers and kick a FG for 23-nil at half time with GB lucky to have nil.
    GB got to & goal at the end of Q3. Surprise! A TD for Adams on a reverse and he caught a pass for +2. 8-23. SF went 75 yards in 2 plays for a TD, 8-30. They scored another TD with 5 minutes left in Q4 for a final score of 8-27. Their Dark Ages are over, the comms reckoned, and they are 10-1 and looking like winners.

Disaster postponed a bit
The Big Challenge for the Labour party has to be how to come up with a credible bribe for everyone. Or enough people to steal a general election win. Their next Big Challenge after a famous victory will be to avoid being lynched by their disappointed customers when they fail to deliver on the bribes.
reader comment“Add up all the bribes and Labour is promising to spend twenty-eight times more than the Conservatives—without telling anyone where the money is coming from.
