Why are people still using PPI Claims Companies?

TV Election Debates - Complete bollocks

What is a general election?

Simple - it is our chance to vote for who we want to run our country.

What has it become? A pathetic wresting match where our wants are ignored and the leaders fight between them selves.

Sunday - Must be Creationism Day

As the Sun that spins slowly round us wakes me from my slumber, and the moon and the stars are puffed out like candles, I stretch and think, "Oh, yes, the world is only 6000 ish years old!"

It is that comfort of knowing that for one day we can throw all that inconvenient scientific evidence in the bin, and put back on our silly heads.

Its time to stop linking Islam and the Terrorists

It is a no brainer - there is a complete difference between your ordinary Muslim and what is known as an Islamic Terrorists.

And yet we spend all our time linking them together and then expecting one side to explain the other and... it is a mess and it is hurting everyone.

Detox? Your Essential Todo List

Its January, and we all know what that means, girls and boys - Detox Time!

Yep, its that time of year when we Purge, Purge, Purge! Are you Ready to Ditto the Detox?

Let's Go!

Is Targetted Advertising a waste of good advertising space?

It is this big new beast that has been growing like a parasite. It creeps up on you and shoves rubbish onto your computer or phone when you are desperately trying to do something else.

It tracks you down and nags you till you bleed.

No Justification at all

There is simply no justification for the attacks on Charlie Hebdo in any rule book or in any law or in any heart that can be judged worthy of being civilized.

Tories gang up on Labour

So, the negative electioneering starts here.

Chris Hope in the Telegraph writes that five Tory cabinet members are set to launch a huge attack on the Labour spending plans.

What? Too cowardly to talk about their own policies?

BBC does pointless test on Calorie Counter

What is the point of a device that tells you how many calories you have already eaten?

The BBC seem to have been so busy seeing if it worked that they missed the obvious!

Homework - the solution or the problem?

Tom Bennett, penning a piece for the Times Educational Supplement, has said that a lot of homework is a pointless exercise.

To the whoops of joy from pupils around the country, it begs the question of whether we are getting education right in any way at all in the modern world.

Votes for the English?

What is all this stuff about English MPs voting for English Laws?

Don't they do that already? Why don't they like their friends across the borders helping out?

This is a case of the WRONG devolution!

The Wrong Hercules

2015. Will we survive it?

Watch out! 2015 has landed.

Oh, come on, you have to have known it would come along at sometime, didn't you? Well, here it is and what can we expect? British general election, Alex Salmond being reborn, Nigel Fararge everywhere, more climate change, more struggling economies and then all the dark stuff like ISIS and Windows 10.  You may not want to read this....

The Interview?

Coming Soon - Soviet 2.0

As Vladimir Putin tightens his grip over the state of Russia and some worry that he is eyeing up his beloved old Soviet territories, are we soon to see a new Iron Curtain descend across the continent of Europe?

But this will not be a curtain built from the corrupted fabric of idealism, but one built from greed and control and using the cold blade of economics - assuming Russia does not go broke first.

Why don't they shutup about each other?

But are we really interested in what they have to say about each other.

Breaking micro business for the sake of politics

January the first, 2015 is the day that new VAT rules come into force that will mean that tiny little companies all over the world will find selling to EU customers a complete pain in the arse.

One again, government proves it is completely out of touch.

It's me in the middle, ain't it!

Yep, this is a new blog by some git in the UK who is not going to say who she is. It is all about being stuck in the middle and not being able to do a damned thing about it.
