I see from Paul Golding's latest email missive that once again Mcdonalds are in the firing line for deciding to open one of their branches on Christmas Day and bringing in one of Holy Mo's worshippers to manage the place especially for the occasion.
Here's where I alienate the readership. I don't give a flying fart what McDonalds or anyone else does and my only beef with their choice of management is that they did not ask an atheist to do it.
As this is the first weekend after Cameron finally found his balls and got down to the business of impersonating Charles De Gaulle, I thought it would be a damn fine idea to peruse the website of the newspaper most associated in my mind with that stalwart of European Union freeloading, "Le Monde".
I still remember driving (in second gear) past the big Moslem religious strongholds in Newport blaring out the message from the roof mounted speaker that there are no No-Go areas for a true patriot. I also recall my passenger's face when a group of pyjama wearing scum came out of the front door still barefoot and started to chase us down the street.
However, that was in happier days when I - and others associated with this site - believed a certain Mr Griffin actually wanted the political party he led to be a political success.
The masthead of this site blares out the warning to all that while those who should have this country's best interests at heart bicker amongst themselves, the enemy creeps in and strikes.
We have a problem. And it is a problem I can personally attest to the existence of.
Anyone who has ridden the Eurostar/TGV service between this country and Brussels knows it stops at Lille. LOTS of people ride the train between Lille and Brussels this time of year because they have the most amazing Christmas markets. Unlike this country where the shops put the Christmas decorations up at the end of August, you can go to these cities on November 24th - my youngest daughter's birthday - as I have done and that was why - and not see a single Christmas Fairy.
Come back a week later and the place is stacked with them. And not just in the red light districts ;-)
However, those riding the TGV outbound in search of festive Christmas cheer will be sharing it with unwelcome guests on the way back.
Over hereyou will find a PDF document detailing the Home Office Police Research Group's report into Police Use of Forensic Science. This document (ISBN 1-85893-634-9) was penned by one Helen McCollough in 1995 and published in 1996 and shows what twelve police forces have used Forensic Science for, and to what effect.
It makes interesting reading.
According to Table 11 on Page 21 the average cost of a DNA test on samples other than blood in 1995 was £177
Just one of those mad bad ideas I get from time to time.
It appears that "London Pride" (Fullers are really going to have to do something about the way their trademark's been nicked) will be having a bit of a Gay Bash on the weekend of the Summer Solstice (don't go googling, the search engine will tell you your computer will catch all sorts of nasty viruses if it goes near their website).
As Cliff Richard once sang shortly before his bo-tox appointment, "Why Should The Devil have All The Good Music?"
So, it occurs to me what we need is a bit of pride given back to those of us who do, or did, our bit to create the next generation the way God - or Darwin, if that floats your boat - intended.
And there's only one place in the country to hold such a festival.
Alan Whicker famously once said to camera "there was somewhere that was clearly not the ideal place for a single girl to go for a picnic". That place is just visible about six hundred yards from here
What better place for a celebration of the sort I have in mind. Can we sort it out in time ?
EDIT ADDED 5th December. In the Paltalk Room last night someone asked about Britain First's letter campaign to Tesco in regard to their decision(s) to a) terminate direct funding support for "The Race For Life" and b) "quite separately" (yeah right) bung thirty thousand pounds in the direction of London Pride.
I wrote to tesco and I got a reply. I'm putting both in this article.
