Saturday too

1. I’m really concerned about the death toll in the Genoa bridge collapse. If it climbs much higher Geldof and Bono might arrange a charity concert.

2. A quadruple Amren:

Follows on. Logical.

Extends the story.

Same sort of mindlessness.

Yes, of course.

3. Trouble with Greece is that they’re indolent bstds, like children, expecting the world to bail them out:

4. The future world of smart technologies. Yawn:

    6.Dr NO must be spinning in his grave. All that was missing was the ‘Lots of LOVE and Props to the Pope-Arlene x ‘.

      Pity it wasn’t sent on orange paper with an Ulster watermark.

        That would just be unprovoked and unnecessary nastiness.

          and since when has that ever bothered either side in NI ?

  2. August 19, 2018 at 04:27

    Yep, terrible thing to do though, quite provocative and unnecessary. Better to send green paper.

    John A.McDonald was a hard nose.
    Lisa Helps,on the other hand,is lovely.
    I occasionally run into her at our local organic market.Very nice and approachable.

      Didn’t know her but found a page on her:

      Remove Lisa Helps in 2018 – hopelessly unqualified to be Mayor

      Victoria now has more safe-injection booths per capita than any city in North America. Yet despite this – or perhaps because of this and the lax and enabling attitudes that go with it – we may be the needle-prick capital of North America also.

      Thanks, Lisa Helps.

      Here’s the sort of maniac she is:

      Lisa Helps, Victoria’s left-wing mayor, said that the Macdonald statue was a “painful reminder of colonial violence” and deserved to be toppled

        Due to the climate(and no doubt scenery)Van Island is a mecca to the homeless.We have an epidemic of drug overdoses so we have safe injection sites.So what?It probably saves $ as well as lives.
        Given they are not indigenous to Victoria I don’t see how this is Lisa’s fault.
        I agree with her on the removal of the statue.
        She is such a hard-working mayor,she won’t be removed from office.

          Incompetent lefty scumbag – there, fixed it for you.
