Saturday

You needn’t look at this post if you don’t want, readers.  I mean, it’s a lovely sunny day out there after it rained indoors here last night and we wouldn’t wish to depress you.

Besides, it’s more of the same old same old.

OK?  You’ll keep reading?  Brave people:

Wiggia shakes his head:

Prof. claims racism inherently his fault, apologizes for being white, middle-class, heterosexual man

Molly Meldrum and others

The Prince of Wales has seen fit to rocket Molly Meldrum to world attention with a re-run of a Molly interview.

Meldrum was active during the times I was in Australia and frankly, he was a trainwreck. The interview with the Prince was fairly typical for Ian Meldrum though – in fact, much of what he did went pear-shaped.

In Australia, that was endearing but to an international audience, a bit excruciating.…

How has BritCom dated?

Hmmmm, at the Speccie - was Cleese ever funny, was Python? I’d add to that – how does it stand today, is it all dated?

The writer, having waded through Cleese’s self-congratulatory autobiography takes a view of the man that I do – I don’t like him. I don’t like what he did in real life, especially to women, many of his views are stupid, e.g. on Christianity and hardly those of a learned mind.  Plus he loves himself.

As a comedian though? Yes, much of what he did was funny – The Germans, the bit where he thrashed a car to within a n inch of its life, some of his shorts – he is naturally funny … or was. Credit where credit’s due. Especially when compared to today’s dire lot of distinctly unfunny scumbags.

Cristina Kirchner comedy hour

Isn’t it nice of Argentina to be so sweet about our welfare:

Daniel Filmus, Argentina’s special secretary for the Falklands, said Britain should withdraw troops from the South Atlantic territory, as it has done in Afghanistan.

“There is absolutely no chance of another invasion from the mainland,” he said. “We as a nation – the government, the senate, the house of representatives – have repeatedly stated that we do not seek a military solution; all we want is a dialogue to resolve our differences.”

Filmus, a close friend of President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, said it was “extraordinary” that with so many conflicts going on around the world, the British government does not want to hold talks.

Quite a programme today Before we kick off with JD, the French have a certain way with words:

George Monbiot not always a Moonbat]-

Human beings – by which I mean those anthropoid creatures who do not necessarily receive social security – often live in families.

But benefit claimants live in “benefit units”, defined by the government as “an adult plus their spouse (if applicable) plus any dependent children living in the household”.

On the bright side, if you die while on a government work programme, you’ll be officially declared a “completer”. Which must be a relief.A dehumanising system requires a dehumanising language.

So familiar and pervasive has this language become that it has soaked almost unnoticed into our lives. Those who do have jobs are also described by the function they deliver to capital. These days they are widely known as “human resources”.

Star footballer caught in sex romp in Paris

Footballers have been known to do some pretty outrageous things but this one takes the biscuit and I’m sorry to say it’s one of our star players. I liked Jimmy Bartel, I really did but this is just one step too far, this is beyond the pale, if you catch my drift.

He was caught canoodling with the young lady and seems the two couldn’t keep their hands off each other.

What’s wrong with that, you might ask? Well for goodness sake – she’s his wife! A man has the hots for his own wife? What’s the world coming to?

I mean, what got into him – he goes gallivanting off to Paris with her when he could have been getting sloshed with the lads in Bali:
