2. A town hall spy on every corner: The 9,600 ‘missions’ by council snoopers to pursue smokers, stalk dog owners and litter louts

How long will it take to realize that this is not normal, yet it is very sane – it is the paradigm of the USSR brought back to life here. This is how it began over there, this is how it’s beginning here. What is the difference between councils now and councils of the 70s and 80s, even the early 90s?

Very simple – Common Purpose and the EU. It’s been documented how they operate, there’s at least one in every council office across the UK, they’re people of limited minds, susceptible to groupthink, they influence council policy and their effect is the brutalization and control of people.  Their motto is “Leading beyond authority”.   They have no right whatever to control you – they just do.   This is the post-democratic era.

3.  A tip from the stable has just come in:  “You may wish to divert your attention for a moment today at 3:40 when the supreme equine athlete makes an appearance at York. http://www.channel4.com/programmes/channel-4-racing Yes, I know I go on about Frankel but he is the best thoroughbred we have seen for a long time. And today will be extremely interesting – he is running over 10 furlongs for the first time instead of a mile and Aiden O’Brien is sending St Nicholas Abbey to try to beat him. Frankel has his usual pacemaker in the race but O’Brien has two pacemakers running which will make it even more interesting! Oh joy :)

So, esteemed readers, you saw it here first, should you have failed to have a flutter.

    The Frankel ‘story’ is a dull one, sadly.

    last I saw it was odds on at 1-7 so unless you are very wealthy……:)

    Frankel is often compared to Brigadier Gerard but I don’t think he is quite as good, although the Brigadier was beaten in this race in 1972.

    and Geoffrey, if you think it is ‘dull’ then you don’t appreciate seeing poetry in motion :)

    Frankel’s story so far, ‘Giant horse, trained by English aristo, wins another race’. Today was different, terrific .. new distance, high-class rivals, trainer in cancer battle .. that’s more like a story.
