Wildlife Massacre

A conference of VIPs on wildlife preservation is taking place in London. Loads of highly-paid and powerful people will jaw for hours, issue a press-conference, and then things will go on much as before.

Cynical? Well, the terrible tragedy taking place in the extermination by Homo Sapiens of beautiful and sentient creatures that do Man no harm is far from new. This has been going on for decades, even if Great White Hunters no longer return from Africa proudly boasting how many big cats, rhinos or elephants they have killed.

otDriven by the lunatic ignorance and immorality of nouveaux-riche Asians, the greed of the usual poacher suspects and the poverty of many who see a rhino kill as a way to a quick fortune, the slaughter of these animals is even accelerating, notwithstanding the continual summits, resolutions, pledges and so on. Indeed, the fewer of these animals there are the higher the price for those products derived from them – a truly appalling example of supply and demand.

What is needed are:

A) … the sale and/or possession of rhino-horn and tiger products, ivory and other stuff from these creatures to be made illegal by China and other governments – AND subject to extremely harsh punishments – AND with resources made available to stamp it out instead of mere lip-service (and yacking at posh conferences)

B) … an international military task-force to hunt down and kill the poachers.

C) … a massive publicity campaign in China, Japan etc, but not a pussy-footing affair, one where the Premier comes on telly and says:

“Look, we have inherited from our tradition the practice of using animal products. This is both STUPID, since they have in fact NO KNOWN THERAPEUTIC qualities and IMMORAL, as these are sentient creatures that do us no harm. Your government has outlawed the purchase and use of products derived from these species, and will ruthlessly pursue and punish those involved in this disgusting trade.”  (Don’t hold your breath ….)

None of these are exactly PC, but the way things are going at the moment we are getting nowhere. Frankly the time for fannying about yacking at summit conferences is over. These species are dying out NOW.

Another great help would be if venal, corrupt, scum-drooling African governments would show more respect for their animals, their people and indeed themselves. However, there is fat sign of that in some of the key countries, including Tanzania as highlighted last week.

An alien visitor sent to observe Homo Sapiens would surely conclude that he is a total and dangerous aberration in galactic life and should be exterminated. We KNOW that this is happening and we KNOW that it is wrong, but somehow we just cannot STOP it. Truly pathetic.

Let us hope at least that when GW and the ensuing famines, plagues and wars wipe us out that as many animals as possible will survive. Perhaps the next  supermammal to evolve in a few million years will be more successful than the current one.

The Telegraph Article is excellent: full of information,
and listing the following as examples of endangered species.

Elephant Murder

The Wonderful Elephant
The Wonderful Elephant

One of the enduring dilemmas one faces is what to do about extremely nasty men who have managed to gain enough power to cause immense suffering.

The choice usually comes down to whether to try to talk to them (to get them to be nicer) or to kill them. On balance, experience seems to show that the former is a fatuous waste of time, so on the whole the latter seems preferable, but of course has become very non-PC.

I am thinking primarily of people such as Hitler, Sadaam Hussein, Gaddafi, Pinochet et al and of course Assad, whose regime continues to kill and hideously maim innocent civilians by the hundreds on a daily basis, those he doesn’t manage to kill being systematically starved where possible.

Assad is of course no more than a family-dynasty gangster thug with zero democratic legitimacy. His family has been oppressing Syria for four decades, and when the long-suffering people finally launched a revolution to gain their freedom – much like in the French and Russian revolutions – of which the left-wing PC brigade are so proud – the free-world gave them “non-lethal support”, a method of aid designed to ensure they die more slowly while Assad’s total control of airspace allows him to indiscriminately attack urban centres and drop barrel-bombs from helicopters onto crowded markets and other public places in those areas daring to resist his fascist rule.

However – given that the free world moronically insists on talking to Assad rather than killing him – my attention has turned to yet another (there is no shortage) very nasty person, one who is also guilty of mass-murder; not personally of course – these people rarely do the killing themselves. The person in question is Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete, allegedly complicit in the murder of 11,000 elephants annually in his country, from which the political elite is almost undoubtedly profiting from the illegal trade in ivory, now  in full boom along with the growing Chinese middle-class.

“Killing elephants is not murder.” Well, this is a point of view I am increasingly loath to accept. It has been established that the DNA of chimpanzees is at least 95% the same as humans, and elephants are probably also over 90%. Let’s look at this again: they are 90% THE SAME AS US.

They are also sentient and highly-intelligent animals. (See below) Sentient? They demonstrate remarkable social behaviour and clearly demonstrate consideration for others and indeed grief. When treated with respect, they collaborate remarkably with humans, and unlike big cats for example, can become almost tame in a similar way to dogs.

However, UNLIKE humans, they do not indiscriminately murder out of greed and/or lust for power other species , let alone their OWN species. This latter practice is one in which Man is unique, which if one is a civilised Human may lead one to feel extreme loathing for one’s own species: no wonder so many of us have existential Angst.

Returning to Tanzania, the British establishment has apparently decided to try to talk to this President rather than kill him, and of course we wish the former luck, even if the chances of success seem slim. Is someone prepared to turn a blind eye at best to the slaughter of tens of thousands of such magnificent creatures likely to be converted to humanity by a lecture from Prince Charles?

Prince Charles & Camilla greet Tanzanian President

Prince Charles & Camilla greet Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete

The problem is of course democratic accountability, of which there is little in Tanzania – or indeed a multitude of other countries, among which Africa is well represented. Until the ordinary people rule their countries, nasty mass-murderers (they almost always are) will thrive and do immense damage. This is of course why free men should be much tougher on fascist regimes.

Speaking of which, why we continue to trade with China is a mystery. Without China’s support the truly murderous and gruesome regime of North Korea could not survive, yet we turn a blind eye to that and continue to buy Chinese goods as if there were no tomorrow – which for many in North Korea’s horrendous death-camps there certainly is not.

PS I picked up the information about Tanzania from the Daily Mail, a British news paper usually treated with utter contempt by the illiberal left-wing PC unintelligentsia – which of course just goes to show how moronic the stance of the DM snobs really is.

See this excellent article here:

QUIZ: Philosophers’ Quotations

Good afternoon. A number of people are now following this blog, so thank you for this compliment.

As you will have gathered, I am motivated mostly by anger at the lies, demagogery, selfishness and incompetence of our leaders.

However, life has its funny side, and the mind cannot survive on bile alone, so I try to add in some other stuff when the inspiration seizes me.

Here is a QUIZ on Philosophers’ quotes. I got into this after watching “Gladiator” and following this up with some research into Marcus Aurelius. Modern Man thinks he is so clever, yet most of it has all been said before, often thousands of years ago.

Anyway, for what it’s worth, here is the quiz in Excel format.

Even if you get all the questions wrong the quotes are worth reading anyway ….. GOOD LUCK!

Goodbye Nelson Mandela ….. thank you.

P1000056Africa is very different. Of course, we know this intellectually, but only a visit makes you really feel and understand it. My first impression in 2009 when driving from Libreville Airport in Gabon to my hotel was the number of hawkers along the roadside. And whenever we had to stop, they would approach the car and try to flog us anything from phonecards to antique clocks. Of course, there was nothing I wanted to buy, but you have to feel for these people, spending all day to make a no-doubt pittance from car travellers undoubtedly much better off than they are.

Well, apparently, when the World Cup was held in South Africa, street hawkers were removed from the vicinity of the magnificent new stadia on the basis that this would “congest” the approaches: spinspeak for “offend visiting VIPs”. Most of the street-traders could never afford a ticket to a game, but their hope of earning some dosh from the big occasion were dashed by the establishment.

I was reminded of this ruling elite incomprehension and/or disdain for the ordinary people by yesterday’s Memorial Ceremony for Nelson Mandela. The stadium was half-full apparently (the people knowing what to expect), and those there were subject to FIVE HOURS of speeches from some of the hundred VIPs present.

As it happened, many of the crowd simply sang and danced with their backs turned as the speeches droned on and on. And President Zuma was booed every time he spoke, causing consternation among the organisers.

But who really wants to hear pontificating speeches from VIPs? Mandela was a great and inspiring man, but a simple, unpretentious and unaffected one. That is not what he deserved.  And he fought for freedom and democracy, so WHY were there representatives of the Chinese government there? Or Cuba come to that? Those are DICTATORSHIPS: the oppressors of one group by a minority, which is EXACTLY what Mandela fought against.

It was pretty sickening, even without the idiotic “selfies” of Obama and Cameron. But it symbolized for me the gap between rulers and ruled, the former coming to think they have more rights than the latter. I wonder what Mandela thought of Zuma, with his regime of corruption, his vast home which he has apparently enhanced with public funds and is under extreme criticism for? Sadly, oppressed people everywhere have only too often thrown off the colonialist yolk  to have it replaced by oppression from their compatriots.

As people from the townships said on interview. “We were dirt poor before the end of apartheid and we still are today, thirty years later. And we don’t expect any change in the foreseeable future.”

Where is the next great leader who will take over and finish the job Mandela started?

mandeladkOne thing did please me from yesterday’s events. Apparently former President Frederik William de Klerk got a big cheer when he was introduced. This week has all been about Mandela, but it is important to remember that though his role was enormous and utterly inspiring – especially in the reconciliation aspect – he did not end apartheid all by himself, as was recognized by the joint award of the Nobel Peace Prize to both him and de Klerk in 1993.

And speaking of the NPP, the sight of Obama doing his usual smooth-talking reminded me of the fatuousness of his own NPP, awarded I suspect simply for being black. Like many things, the NPP has been seriously devalued since the time when Mandela and de Klerk so deservedly won it.

Where Does the Carbon Dioxide Really Come From?

Ian Rutherford Plimer is an Australian geologist, Professor Emeritus of Earth Sciences at the University of Melbourne, Professor of Mining Geology at the University of Adelaide, and the director of multiple mineral exploration and mining companies. He has published 130 scientific papers, six books and edited the Encyclopedia of Geology. Professor Ian Plimer could not have said it better!

If you’ve read his book you will agree, this is a good summary.

PLIMER: “Okay, here’s the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland . Since its first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our planet – all of you.

Of course, you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to suppress – it’s that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to live and grow and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans and all animal life.

I know….it’s very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense of driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till midnight to finish your kids “The Green Revolution” science project, throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad. Nearly getting hit every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cent light bulbs with $10.00 light bulbs…..well, all of those things you have done have all gone down the tubes in just four days.

The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth’s atmosphere in just four days – yes, FOUR DAYS – by that volcano in Iceland has totally erased every single effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around 200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud at any one time – EVERY DAY.

I don’t really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention that when the volcano Mt Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human race had emitted in all its years on earth.

Yes, folks, Mt Pinatubo was active for over one year – think about it.

Of course, I shouldn’t spoil this ‘touchy-feely tree-hugging’ moment and mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized 800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keeps happening despite our completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.

And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud, but the fact of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.

Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon tax on you, on the basis of the bogus ‘human-caused’ climate-change scenario.

Hey, isn’t it interesting how they don’t mention ‘Global Warming’ anymore, but just ‘Climate Change’ – you know why? It’s because the planet has COOLED by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming bullshit artists got caught with their pants down.

And, just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme – that whopping new tax – imposed on you that will achieve absolutely nothing except make you poorer. It won’t stop any volcanoes from erupting, that’s for sure.

But, hey, relax…… and have a nice day!”

One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest

Francis Maude has advised motorists to keep a jerry
can of fuel in their garage in case of a tanker driver strike.

I’ve seen some pathetic things from governments, but this one is right up there with the best.

A) Storing petrol is dangerous, not to say illegal; there may well be some horrible deaths and injuries because of this.

B) Such stockpiling will only ensure stocks run out faster.

C) It could lead to a spate of thefts from private garages by East-European immigrants and others, but with any luck they’ll still be too busy ripping the lead of church and the wiring from power supplies.  Sorry – not very PC, but to be honest I’ve just about had PC.

D) It would only make any difference for a few days anyway.

E) It’s for the govt to ensure supplies – SACK all the strikers. If they think they are undervalued presumably someone else will snap them up as soon as they are free. While you’re at it, do the same with the tube drivers AND the bankers.

This reminds me, I must see: “One flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest” once again.

NEWS OF THE DAY

Unresearched and Fallacious Rant of the Day

Well, another event-filled day. I note that the ECC (Evil Capitalist Coalition) is planning to give more rights to fathers to see their kids. Long overdue of course, though 13 years weren’t enough for Labour to get around to it.

Minibruder has turned into a latter-day Wilberforce battling nobly on our behalf to rein in Fat Cat bonuses. This is despite the fact that the GPB&BP (Great People’s Binge and Bust Party) spent 13 long years (and it seemed even longer of course) removing regulations from banking, indulging in a surreal borrowing binge, ignoring the vastly-increasing wealth-gap including banking bonuses and EVEN (HILARIOUSLY) drawing up and signing the contract by which Mr Hester was to have milked up to FIFTY MILLION QUID from the public for rescuing the RBS – which of course has suddenly overnight metamorphosed into something nasty and horribly immoral.

Yes, throughout this entire period of Blair-Brown feuding, lies and incompetence, not one peep was heard from the now evangelistic Minibrain about any of it. No doubt he mightily approved of Mandelscum’s “I don’t mind if people get filthy rich.” What happened? Did he wander into a cave somewhere and have a vision from the Archangel Gabriel?

You only have to look at this cynical U-turn designed to catch the public mood and earn him short-term headlines as a true English dragon-slayer to see the shoddy, cynical, short-termism mindset into which politics has sunk. Or perhaps it was ever so.

BUT, there is wonderful news for the unintelligentsia. A Canadian “research” team has concluded that Conservatives tend to be less intelligent than those of leftish orientation. WONDERFUL. Some brilliant quotes:

Conservative politics work almost as a ‘gateway’ into prejudice against others, say the Canadian academics.’Individuals with lower cognitive abilities may gravitate towards more socially conservative right-wing ideologies that maintain the status quo.

Great stuff. Isn’t research wonderfu!! I must give it a go one day. But Conservatives of course will generally be too thick to understand “cognitive” and “gravitate” I do wish these people would use shorter words.

“The authors claim that there is a strong correlation between low intelligence both as a child and an adult, and right-wing politics.” The authors also claim that conservative politics is part of a complex relationship that leads people to become prejudices (sic).

BUT – and it’s a big one – fortunately, intelligent, non-prejudiced Conservatives and thick, racist Socialists have a get-out clause, since:

‘Clearly, however, all socially conservative people are not prejudiced, and all prejudiced persons are not conservative.’

WHEW! That’s a relief. This accounts for the idiocy of quite a few of those on the left. Strange how they all seem to herd together and end up in the GPB&BP!

There you go, Michael! Wonderful what a bit of “research” can come up with. I had doubted the value of research of course, but this is gripping stuff. I wonder if they got an EU grant?

FACEBOOK – in the news of course, and I was struck by this:

“People with low self-esteem who sign up to Facebook often end up over-sharing personal information and moaning, which irritates their existing friends, according to Canadian researchers.”

Indeed. People always moaning and irritating their friends are to be both excoriated and pitied simultaneously. Still, I do post the odd joke now and then, and anyway, this theory is only important if you have any friends to start with. But my gut instinct (sorry – no research; my gut is all you’ve got to go on) is that Facebook may soon peak as a passing fad. Everything has its day and eventually fades into the dust.

I note that this report is from Canadians once again. I didn’t know they were so much into research!!  Researchers on every corner so it seems. Of course, no Great People’s Binge and Bust Party, but you can’t have everything.

The Concordia sinking. Oh dear – the Captain’s woes continue. Just when his wife sticks up for him to the hilt it emerges that this dishy singer/dancer he had on the bridge while he was showing off his “How close can I whizz past the rocks?” skills was using the Captain’s suitcase to store her knickers in. Funny that – it looks such a big boat; you’d have thought they’d have more storage space. I wonder how wifey is going to react to this. “Don’t kick a man when he’s down.” Indeed – tell that to the drowned passengers trapped in their cabins far below deck.

Great headline in the Daily Grail: foreigners, welfare state abuse, landlords – all in one economical package.

“Latvian landlady with £1.1m property empire fleeced £33,000 in benefits after claiming she was unemployed”

Still, no doubt unresearched prejudiced rubbish – and it’s only money.

Chris Huhne? A double dose of good news of course:

A) One of the pillocks running the country bites the dust:

B) There is sometimes justice.

The problem for Cleggo is to find someone of Huhne’s calibre to replace him. I’ve sent the former a note, however. My old Gran in the Dementia Care Home has some time spare just now. And does this mean we get a break from vast taxes on energy to save the world unilaterally by building wind-turbines just when China is opening one coal-fired power stattion per week? I hope so.

Have a good day.

Hysterical Guilt


I have been following the Turkey-France spat about the Armenian “genocide” with growing disbelief. One reason I started this site was the appalling lack of logic allied to nationalism that seems to stalk the world and a desire to make a gesture in defence of sanity.

Re the “genocide”, let’s start from square 1.

FACTS:

A “country” cannot feel, think or speak. It can, therefore, obviously not be GUILTY of anything. A “country” just “is”. Only PEOPLE are capable of the above: feeling, thinking, speaking and being guilty.

As for historical guilt, there are TWO major premises that concern us:

1) Only a MINORITY of people can be guilty of acts at a national level, namely THOSE WITH THE POWER OF DECISION. This clearly does not apply to the majority of the population in any country.

2) In the case of Turkey and the Armenian question, ALL THE TURKISH INDIVIDUALS RESPONSIBLE for the action against Armenians are LONG DEAD. NO TURK currently alive can possibly be guilty of ANYTHING; it all happened LONG BEFORE the vast majority were born. Even those alive in 1916 were far too young to have had any power of decision.

THEREFORE, NO GUILT WHATSOEVER CAN BE ATTRIBUTED TO “Turkey”. No child can be held responsible for the acts of its parents.

Given these FACTS, which in essence are bleedin’ obvious, how does one explain the hysteria of the Turks and their refusal to admit that yes, indeed, their ancestors were guilty of the genocidal killing of Armenians, which is apparently the conclusion of most historians?

Personally, I cannot understand it. A total refusal to apply logic to human behaviour is beyond my understanding.

This question of historical guilt is of course not confined to Turkey. The Germans are supposed to continue to feel guilt about the Nazis. The British should still feel guilty about the bombing of Dresden. The Japanese are supposed to feel sorry about their army’s behaviour in WWII, about the appalling massacres in China. Europe is supposed by Muslims to feel guilt about the Crusades; many Muslims still feel angry about them. Some British no doubt STILL hate the French because of the Norman invasion in 1066.  But NOBODY alive had anything to do with these acts and/or atrocities.

Concerning Dresden, I personally think it was wrong, a bombing too far, but I cannot feel ANY GUILT about it. I was not born when it happened. My parents had nothing to do with it, but even if they had, that changes nothing. The decision was taken by individuals who are all dead. Whatever guilt they bore they took with them to the grave.

Time for the Turks to grow up. The ironic thing is that by refusing to admit the facts they appear to be SYMPATHETIC to what was done by their forefathers.

The worrying thing is that even in the 21st century much of international politics seems to be carried out on the basis of primitive tribalism and illogicality. How the HELL can we change this?

What 2012 has in store …..

– Argentina will successfully invade the Falklands and most of the inhabitants will emigrate from their homeland and birthplace to Britain. A giant statue of General Galtieri will be erected in Stanley, or rather Freedom-from-Colonialism City as it will be renamed. A protest by Argentinian Indians demanding the return of their country from Spanish colonialists will be suppressed with massive force and the ringleaders shot if lucky or imprisoned if not. The EU will support Argentina with the French supplying Exocets Mark 21 and the UK will leave the EU in disgust. UK fishermen will reclaim their traditional fishing areas, the stocks will be better managed, the population will eat more fish and be healthy. A brief fishing-war will end with one of our aircraftless aircraft-carriers ramming a Spanish trawler. The UK will save 20 million GBP per day previously wasted on the EU and Dame Ashton, Boringoso and Van Rompo will lose their jobs. (riotous joy breaks out all over England)

– The euro will collapse leaving only Germany, Austria and Holland as members of the currency to be renamed the Nordmark. Whether the people will end up calling the Mark or the Nord for short is unknown at this time.

– In the final triumph of Brusselian zealotry the economies of Southern Europe and Ireland will collapse and millions will emigrate to the Nordmark zone and of course to England, forcing the govt to stop all immigration and review all benefits as they decide to adopt a Swedish-style benefits system. PM Cameron said: “If it’s good enough for the Swedes then it’ll do for us.”

– The Coalition will disintegrate as Cleggo leaves to spend an
indefinite period in a sanitorium recovering from a mystery illness; he was last seen being carted off by men in white coats. Meanwhile an arrest warrant will be issued for Gordon Brown for the new crime of “ruining an economy” – as opposed to running one as he thought he was doing.

– The govt will be forced to call an election which it will win in a landslide. It will then repudiate all pfi contracts signed by the previous Labour government, thus saving millions by no longer paying hundreds of pounds to change a light bulb. Striking tube workers will be immediately sacked and desperate immigrants from the south and east of Europe hired to replace them. The sacked strikers will parade around complaining about their rights. Once their benefits have stopped after the new limit of six weeks they will be hired onto the new government “Clean up your community” scheme to remove graffiti and rubbish etc. This keeps them active and fit and gives them just about enough to live on while they retrain as bog-attendants.

– WWIII will break out over Taiwan but it’s a long way away and the fallout will take months to reach Britain. In any case, a poorly-maintained nuclear reactor somewhere in Eastern Europe will explode sending radioactive dust all over Europe, so the fate of Taiwan will be the least of our worries.

– War in the Middle East will erupt between Shia and Sunni factions in various countries. Israel and the USA will bomb Iran back to the Stone age to destroy its nuclear facilities and all Muslims will be expelled from Europe. All oil imports will cease and the UK will return to coal with a gasworks being built in every town and city to provide heat and lighting. Arthur Scargill will be made Honorary President of the new British Mining Corporation. Horses and carriages will return to the City Streets with the added advantage that remakes of Sherlock Holmes stories will be much cheaper.

– Food imports will disappear and the English (the Welsh also have declared UDI and applied to unite with newly-independent Scotland, a double-whammy provoking yet another rare outburst of riotous joy in England) will start planting potatoes in their gardens – if they have one. The price of potatoes will rocket in inverse proportion to the resale value of Ferraris. Consumers will once more be able to buy curved bananas, except that there won’t be any. Curvy cucumbers, however, will regain their once-proud position in the market.

– Once the Sunnis have wiped out the Shia or vice versa they will turn on apostates (= everyone else) to try to cleanse the planet for Mohammed. They’ll have the oil but fortunately we’ll have the bomb . If anyone is left over when the dust has settled then perhaps Man will start again a bit wiser – but don’t bet on it…………..

Cuba mourns Kim Jung-Il

“Cuba declares three days of mourning for North Korean leader, while Nicaragua, Venezuela and President Mugabe loyalists express sorrow too.”

North Korea being hardly better than a giant concentration camp of brainwashed and starved humans counts for little then in this Cuban assessment of the defunct leader? So much for the New Dawn in the Cuban dictatorship. Plus ca change ….

We know well from experience that there are no depths of depravity or insanity to which even outwardly “normal” people can descend, but even to the sheer surreality of such behaviour still has the power to shock.

What is the take of the resident Cuba-lovers on this latest obscenity against the Human Spirit?

Still, the fact that the power of life or death over millions of North Koreans and the finger on a nuclear bomb threatening millions of others now rests in the hands of a four-star child general shows the lunacy of Human development. Any visiting alien would almost certainly decide to put this sick species out of its misery and eliminate it as a danger to the rest of the universe.

Meanwhile, we await Christmas to play with our Chinese plastic bits and then the sales to get our hands on cheap electrical goodies made in China, the country that totally sustains North Korea – its socialist brother alongside Cuba – in the interests of “stability”. Oh yes, that much-cherished “stability” and “order”.

Must stop – have to go and vomit.
