Poor children (whatever they are) are being deceived by the plethora of worthless exam results they are awarded for simply turning up to abuse teachers and text message their way through the day whilst stabbing their fellow pupils.
Examinations are the standard in society. They display to others what you are capable of. They signify potential. they are the first step on the long road to personal success and if required, wealth. They may lead to happiness, health and harmony, a fulfilled and rewarding life, crammed with achievement and success.
"So let us not deceive our children, and especially children from poorer homes with worthless qualifications so that they become like the citizens of Weimar Germany or Robert Mugabe's Zimbabwe carrying their certificates around in a wheelbarrow, or produce people like those girls in the first round of X Factor who tell us they want to be the next Britney Spears but they can't sing a note."
Never in the history of Britain have 646 so totally fucked up the lives of those not yet born. Sorry to dissapoint you, Balls. My kids will be gone from your Socialist Utopia of bonded labour and State handouts into an international world of opportunity. Despite your finest efforts to see them living in a council house belching Stella and voting Labour until they die.
Meet Sam, 18. Sam has Downs Syndrome and passed 8 GCSEs. No, really. Sam will be lucky if he gets an assisted placement moping up vomit in McDonalds and living in a warden run Mong farm. It matters not one jot that he has 8 GCSEs. It will not change his life but will change the lives of millions of our children. Because if a mong can get 8, literally anybody can. So they become worthless. Now you can deride me for calling Sam a mong (he is) but awarding him 8 GCSEs after years of expensive schooling has just undermined 100 years of education for the average schoolchild. Exams are pointless. If you doubt me, then give Sam a job in accounts at YOUR company.

Schools Minister Vernon Coaker said: "These comments are quite frankly astonishing. It's easy to make sweeping, rhetorical flourishes about so-called 'soft' subjects - but it is wrong to ignore the hard work of tens of thousands of teachers and pupils and misrepresent the state of education in this country.
Do follow Big Vern on twitter. Fucking hilarious.

The bloggeratti are panting eagerly in expectation that the Chillcott gangbang of five are about to prove the existence of the 'G' spot, 'G' in this respect standing for Guilt, Blair, Tony, of.
Faster, deeper, talk dirty intentions to us; an army of voyeurs stand on the sidelines proffering advice, ask this, ask that, go here, go there.
'Miranda' is no more about to explode in an orgasm of guilt that will lead him to the promised land in the Hague at the hands of five members of a parliamentariat which couldn't even organise an expenses rip-off in an institution of unparalleled privilege than donate his assets to Iraqi orphans.
This isn't the Jeremy Kyle show; a skilled interlocutor tearing holes in a collection of feral youths who have never being held to account before - although the Daily Telegraph is doing its level best to engender that atmosphere with its interactive 'lie-detector' appearing alongside Blair, so that the 'peeeple' can place their votes now - this is a collection of feral parliamentarians who have never been successfully held to account themselves, attempting to tear holes in a series of skilled interlocutors.
One of the advantages of being in government is the ability to surround yourself by the best 'operators', and so before Blair exercised his prerogative to take the country to war purely on his say so, as he was fully entitled to, he took the precaution of ensuring that his former flatmate, Goldsmith, had a legal argument up his sleeve, in the event that the International Criminal Court was ever invoked, and that Alastair Campbell was laying a careful trail through the media that could successfully obscure the manner in which he took his decision.
In any given dispute, there will be two different legal 'opinions' given - that by counsel for the defence, and that by counsel for the prosecution - they will be diametrically opposed, it is the nature of the beast. Both will be from 'learned cousnel' - the media has spent two days salivating over Lord Goldsmith's opinion as though it came down the mountain on a tablet of stone, it was just that, an opinion. Furthermore, it was an opinion to 'his client' - Tony Blair - not the British people.
The millions that are being expended on this political show trial are doing no more than obscuring the reforms of our parliament that could ensure in future we have parliamentarians who stand for truth and honestly.
Blair is the past, raking it over serves no purpose whatsoever. Correction, it keeps the chattering blogeratti occupied when we should be better employed raking over the future.
Police said it was the UK's biggest ever demonstration with at least 750,000 taking part, although organisers put the figure closer to two million.
There were also anti-war gatherings in Glasgow and Belfast - all part of a worldwide weekend of protest with hundreds of rallies and marches in up to 60 countries.
They came as UK Prime Minister Tony Blair, in a speech warning of "bloody consequences" if Iraq was not confronted, directly addressed those marching.

Nobody dies in the UK of starvation because the State doesn't allow it - good thing
Nobody is killed if they earn over £1M a year - good thing.
However Tom, what your government has introduced is a system where there are no negative consequences to not working. None.
“work hard, get lucky and you’ll own a Learjet”
“work hard and you’ll own a BMW”
“Sit on the couch all day belching Stella and you’ll still get a car (an old banger mind), a washing machine, some beer vouchers, a fridge, a cooker, a TV, somewhere to live, free school meals and free health and education. All translated into Urdu if you need it. Just vote Labour”

Where the two senior legal officers in the Foreign Office in the build up to the Iraq war have given evidence. They have both declared in forthright terms that the war was plain and simply illegal.
However the outcome for their shared view is very different. Sir Michael Wood, the then head of the department, simply put his head down and got on with other work and picked up a knighthood in 2004.
His principled deputy Elizabeth Wilmshurst resigned two days before the invasion. Gary Gibbon reports that she was the only witness to have been given a round of applause throughout the entire Inquiry thus far. But Lord Goldsmith and Tony Blair are yet to come.
Channel 4 News
Elizabeth Wilmshurst is the only public official to have come out of this with any credit.
A minute dated 18 March 2003 from Elizabeth Wilmshurst (Deputy Legal Adviser) to Michael Wood (The Legal Adviser), copied to the Private Secretary, the Private Secretary to the Permanent Under-Secretary, Alan Charlton (Director Personnel) and Andrew Patrick (Press Office):
1. I regret that I cannot agree that it is lawful to use force against Iraq without a second Security Council resolution to revive the authorisation given in SCR 678. I do not need to set out my reasoning; you are aware of it.
[The following italicised section was removed by the Foreign Office but later obtained by Channel 4 News]
My views accord with the advice that has been given consistently in this office before and after the adoption of UN security council resolution 1441 and with what the attorney general gave us to understand was his view prior to his letter of 7 March. (The view expressed in that letter has of course changed again into what is now the official line.)
I cannot in conscience go along with advice - within the Office or to the public or Parliament - which asserts the legitimacy of military action without such a resolution, particularly since an unlawful use of force on such a scale amounts to the crime of aggression; nor can I agree with such action in circumstances which are so detrimental to the international order and the rule of law.
2. I therefore need to leave the Office: my views on the legitimacy of the action in Iraq would not make it possible for me to continue my role as a Deputy Legal Adviser or my work more generally.
For example in the context of the International Criminal Court, negotiations on the crime of aggression begin again this year.
I am therefore discussing with Alan Charlton whether I may take approved early retirement. In case that is not possible this letter should be taken as constituting notice of my resignation.
3. I joined the Office in 1974. It has been a privilege to work here. I leave with very great sadness.
If you fancy some mischief, there are various opportunities to arrest a well known war criminal responsible for the deaths of between 100,000 and 1 million innocent men, women and children coming up.
Anthony Charles Lynton Blair
He is known to be residing in the UK at various addresses and is wanted on charges of genocide. It is rumoured he will be associating with fellow criminals in London. Do your worst.
I have been watching the Tea Party movement in the States for the last year, they have
been slightly more than successful in grabbing 'There is something wrong with steering' Kennedy's old seat in the US Senate. Or as the Guardian calls them-'What sort of person could unite this rag-tag collection of tax-hating gun nuts and single-issue cranks? '
The Grauniad still believes that the second coming has happened then !
The 'Chosen One' worshipping of Obama when he was elected was nauseating enough, our own dear Kerry MP Bristol East was out there campaigning on behalf of the good people of Bristol for his election. The BBC told us that angels would appear on the earth and Doves fly into the Sky.
The reality is that the American Economy so long dependent on the Consumer, is in hock to China, Guantánamo Bay is still open for business and the Iraq/Afghanistan mess continues with the prospect of another pre announced offensive. (They did not do this in the First World War !)
Anyway,now that the word of the chosen one has been challenged by the voters, the BBC has decided to get down and find out why the good people of Massachusetts voted for Senator Brown, by going to interview 'the people who oppose the President' in Kentucky and Arkansas !!
Hopefully for the BBC, it can stoke up the implication that this is a racist conspiracy from nothing more than a bunch of Good Ol' Rednecks South of the Mason Dixon line. This is a new low for the BBC.
Here is a map so that BBC Executives can work out Mass, KY and AR
The BBC should not have to worry too much, our two party system is not as sophisticated as the two hundred year old American one. A Barbary Ape with a Blue Rosette could win most seats with minimal interference from 'Independents'.

It is important that Trafalgar Square is a safe, enjoyable environment for Londoners and visitors to the capital. Heritage Wardens are employed there at all times to make sure it is, and to help our visitors to enjoy the square.

He's been issued a parking fine by Bournemouth Council, who in turn are a private corporation run for profit. Do they have a contract with the Freeman? Of course not. so up until now, he's just been sending the demands back to them. No contract, no deal.
Then he opened one up. Guess what? They want to negotiate and find a way for him to pay that fits his "ethos" as a freeman. Not paying is "undemocratic" apparently. Unfortunately, negotiating means that he would recognise the fine as lawful, so it went straight back again.

Our police can kill citizens at will and no one will question them. They read our emails and listen to our phone calls. Millions of cameras watch our every move. Millions are enslaved in state aided poverty. Dissent is to be reported at every turn. It is your duty to spy on your fellow citizens.
Our politicians plunder our finances to gorge themselves on hard earned taxes whilst bankrupting our children. And our masters kill their political opponents at will and hide the evidence.
They are shitting in our faces. 646 of them. Shitting in our fucking faces. This cannot go on. I know some of the 646 read this blog along with numerous SpAds and wonks. Be warned. People far less twisted than me have had enough. And I really mean enough. It isd going to get VERY ugly, very soon and I will have not one ounce of pity for you and your ilk.

Meanwhile, I see the Police (against whom I wreaked havoc today) have a new wheeze. Robots to watch over our every move. No, really. Drone planes designed to watch the Taliban having a shit so they could kill them are now being used to watch us having a shit. Presumably for the same reason. We are enemies of the State. Our State. 646 arrogant, power crazed, deluded crooks are running the country into the ground for their own personal gain and the Police are instructed to watch 61,000,000 of us with robots. Just in case.
It is coming. They are watching our Emails, our phone calls, our movements, our web site visits, our shopping, our children, our eating habits, our sexual habits, our driving habits, the places we visit, what we say, what we do, what we think.
And to think we spent 40 years frightened of Communism and their lack of personal freedoms.
I know who the real enemy is. And how few of them there really are. It is going to get a lot worse before it gets any better. Bring it on.
If East Germany can do it, so can we.

I'll look forward to the cancellation of direct flights from Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bosnia, Brunei, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Dahomey, Egypt, Ethiopia, Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Guyana, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Kyrgyzstan, Lebanon, Libya, Malaysia, Maldives, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Mozambique, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sudan, Suriname, Syria, Tajikistan, Tunisia, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan and Western Sahara.
Then we can deal with indirect flights from all of these places into all of the places in Europe that they can always fly into directly or indirectly and then travel freely within EU borders without let or hindrance. And trains. From Luton to Kings Cross for example. And cars at Glasgow Airport loaded with petrol and the dulcet tunes of Sunni Nasheeds on the stereo.

Last year the Police go very excited about cracking a few heads in the Summer of Rage Hartshorn of the Met warned some middle class bastards are going to kick off, or words to that effect. In the end we had one newspaper seller killed and a six foot copper with his ID hidden laying into a woman half his size with the back of his hand and then proceeding to take her legs away with his baton.
This year, we have still the soft fluffiness of a Government borrowing £20m an hour, every hour of every day, seven days a week, fifty two weeks of the year. This will continue as none of the three major parties want to address the deficit, they just want to tell everybody what they are going to spend your money on. Unfortunately PAYE is not even covering the Benefits bill, so that is why the Government is acting like a junkie in a crackhouse. CPI rose to 2.9% in December.
Once the Election is over, and another 646 sit in the Commons and we are set for another five years of elective dictatorship with a landslide for the Tories with I estimate less than 25% of the available vote. The dabbling round the edges will start, hikes in NI (tax on jobs and business) hikes in VAT to 20%+ plus increases in fuel duty (taxes on the poor), collapse in foreign investment in the UK. With a moth floating out of the treasury account books and not a lot else
Britain is the only Country importing people and exporting Jobs. The longer the Political Classes put off the inevitable reduction in personal tax take and having to slash and burn the State and its dependents the more painful the correction is going to be.
Perhaps Super Hartshorn got the Summer of Rage right and the year wrong.
Ask your candidate on May 6th were they stand on Elected Chief Constables, I bet they have not even thought about it.
The Police are becoming more dangerous not less since gunning down Jean-Charles De Menezes. This use of the local armed plod and helicopter seems to me that eventally somebody is going to get seriously hurt. The boy made a peaceful protest, and look at the result.
I suggest that somebody serves a FOI request on how much this jolly jape cost and send an invoice to the Chief Constable to pay personally. I can't be bothered at present because i am still dealing with the results of my subject access request, it is amazing what the guardians keep on us all.

Dave is not a Libertarian (he said so) Dave does not believe in giving you a say over the EU (No to a Lisbon Referendum) , the great forehead of doom is going to restore public finances by introducing European Vat Rates in excess of 20% because 'its good for us'.
The only thing good for us is to pull down the big intrusive state, Billy Bragg wants a tax strike, because of the evil Bankers, I want a tax stike to bring down the big State, it worked in 1640 over the Bishops War and Ship Money and it worked in 1776.
Mass immigration ? blame the Welfare State, would you move to another country with no home, no means of support,no understanding of the language or culture ? Those that can do this deserve to come here because they are taking a risk and are not a drain on the rest of us. Mass Immigration has come about because the State offers a better standard of living, than living in a country with no work and a lot of heavy ordnance descending from above.
The Forehead of Doom is going continue to maintain a big State by continuing to take fifty per cent of your salary before you see it, and slap another tax on the poor by raising VAT to European levels. Sucking money out of the productive private sector and redirecting it to the bombed out public sector.
None of these are State organisations, they are efficient and do not demand index linked pensions out of your PAYE.
The National Trust
County Helicopter Trusts
How do you feel about these, resentful, put upon, do they need huge administrations ?
Why does every service we want have to be provided by the State, the most inefficient method of delivering anything.
Vote UKIP,Vote BNP, Vote Independent,whatever- you will still be losing half of your salary and paying 20% Vat, because in this two party state, its the Conservatives turn next

Obnoxio comments on UKIP's new 'flagship', and successful eye catching 'ban the Burqa' stunt. Trying to Out BNP the BNP.
I do not want to hear one more word on how UKIP is Britain's only Libertarian Party. Fancy having your office raided viz Nikki Sinclaire MEP, join UKIP the party of kick arse 1950's authoritarianism. UKIP is all things to all men as long as you hate the EU.
By using the word 'hate' I am being specific, because this is the gout ridden, red faced emotional reaction to Johnny Foreigner. UKIP are fully aware that the have very little to offer than this one pressure group offering of 'Out of the EU', but the best they could come up with was bashing Johnny Foreigner for what they wear. I say lets ban tweeds and MCC ties whilst we are about it.
The Libertarian Party is agin the EU because it is more big, costly, unrepresentative Government. AND the people of the UK have not assented to it. Therefore it is illegitimate.
I do not give a monkey's if people want to wear burqas,MCC ties or pink thongs in the street. As long as they are doing nothing harmful to others, who cares.
If UKIP and the BNP are appealing to the foul mouthed, drunk, white working classes who were thrown off the train, I was travelling on yesterday. I want the BNP and UKIP to 'ban' them as well. In fact lets ban everything we do not agree with personally.
I find Lord Pearson offensive to look at and listen to, but I am happy to let him push on not be banned and sink UKIP into a party of Colonel Blimps

If I knew who you were, I would sue. I have stolen nothing from anyone and deeply resent the accusation. Both Sir Thomas Legge and Sir Christopher Kelly have confirmed in writing that they have “No Issues” with me – and even the Daily Telegraph could not give me a mention.
So – identify yourself and repeat the allegation. I dare you.
It was found that in 1993 Nadir had paid Mates to ask questions on his behalf in the British House of Commons. Mates was forced to resign over this affair. Nadir had also been a major contributor to Conservative Party funds through the previous decade.
Tell us where you live Michael and we might tell you where WE live
Next! David Kidney MP
I want you to explain what you mean when you accuse me of stealing.
David Kidney MP
The Labour MP, has paid back the cash after reporters from The Sentinel questioned why Mr Kidney had received a £1,068.51 council tax rebate three times in 2007 and twice claimed water rates totalling £290.80 in the same year.
Now the House of Commons Fees Office has discovered it approved the same council tax payment three times and the same water rates bill twice when both should only have been paid once.
Mr Kidney repaid the cash – without interest – on Friday after the error regarding his two-bedroom London flat came to light.
Before the error, Mr Kidney had claimed £64,255 between April 2004 and the end of March 2008. The region's highest claimers were Staffordshire Moorlands MP Charlotte Atkins on £87,702 and Newcastle MP Paul Farrelly on £86,311.
Mr Kidney said: "I was unaware of the errors and horrified to learn about this. I feel let down by the fees office.
Go on, Cromwell an MP. They HATE it.
After the failed attempt by the UN to extract trillions in taxes at Copenhagen and redistribute to various dictators throughout the planet, it would appear our unelected New World Order will simply not take NO for an answer
Such a scheme could raise "tens of billions of dollars" on behalf of the United Nations' public health arm from a broad base of consumers, which would then be used to transfer drug-making research, development and manufacturing capabilities, among other things, to the developing world.
The multibillion-dollar "indirect consumer tax" is only one of a "suite of proposals" for financing the rapid transformation of the global medical industry that will go before WHO's 34-member supervisory Executive Board at its biannual meeting in Geneva.
The idea is the most lucrative — and probably the most controversial — of a number of schemes proposed by a 25-member panel of medical experts, academics and health care bureaucrats who have been working for the past 14 months at WHO's behest on "new and innovative sources of funding" to accomplish major shifts in the production of medical R&D.
WHO's so-called Expert Working Group has also suggested asking rich countries to set aside fixed portions of their gross domestic product to finance the shift in worldwide research and development, as well as asking cash-rich developing nations like China, India or Venezuela to pony up more of the money.
These would also add billions in additional funds to international health care for the future — as much as $7.4 billion yearly from rich countries, and as much as $12.1 billion from low- and middle-income nations.
But the taxation ideas draw the most interest. The expert panel cites a number of possible examples. Among them:
—a 10 per cent tax on the international arms trade, "which might net about $5 billion per annum";
—a "digital tax or 'hit' tax." The report says the levy "could yield tens of billions of U.S. dollars from a broad base of users";
—a financial transaction tax. The report approvingly cites a levy in Brazil that charged 0.38 percent on bills paid online and on unspecified "major withdrawals." The report says the Brazilian tax was raising an estimated $20 billion per year until it was cancelled for unspecified reasons.
The panel concludes that "taxes would provide greater certainty once in place than voluntary contributions," even as the report urges WHO's executive board to promote all of the alternatives, and more, to support creation of a "global health research and innovation coordination and funding mechanism" for the planned revolution in medical research, development and distribution.

If you want to help the Hiatians rebuild their country, buy their coffee. Demand it in Starbucks, demand it in Waitrose and demand it in Asda. Do not give any money to any fake charities or any governments. They will only spend it on windmills, tofu or uniforms. Just buy their coffee. It's actually very good.

They WANT your views. They WANT you to tell them are idiots, have no fucking idea and couldn't find an arse in an arse factory. Which is why they hid this little public consultation where no one would find it.
You have until 18th January to tell them what you think. Direct Democracy. Use it.
...It is high time for me to put an end to your sitting in this place, which you have dishonoured by your contempt of all virtue, and defiled by your practice of every vice; ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money.
“Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? Is there one vice you do not possess? Ye have no more religion than my horse; gold is your God; which of you have not barter'd your conscience for bribes? Is there a man amongst you that has the least care for the good of the Commonwealth?
“Ye sordid prostitutes, have you not defil'd this sacred place, and turn'd the Lord's temple into a den of thieves by your immoral principles and wicked practices? Ye are grown intolerably odious to the whole nation; you were deputed here by the people to get grievances redress'd; your country therefore calls upon me to cleanse the Augean Stable, by putting a final period to your iniquitous proceedings, and which by God's help and the strength He has given me, I now come to do.
“I command ye, therefore, upon the peril of your lives, to depart immediately out of this place! Take away that shining bauble there, and lock up the doors. You have sat here too long for the good you do. In the name of God, go!

...for the worse.
The Tory health spokesman, Andy Landy, has decided he wants to change the 'units' on booze to 'centilitres (10 ml) of pure alcohol' because he thinks we are 'all confused by units'.
The plan drew protests from alcohol experts last night, who pointed out that using 'centilitres of pure alcohol' would confuse most drinkers.
Put whatever you want on there. Most of us don't read them at all and those who do, only do so because they're competing to see who can drink the most and you're giving them a handy way to keep score. It doesn't matter what the units are defined as, as long as they can be added up on a scorecard. And you silly sods still don't realise that, do you?
Harmless bit of political stupidity, really. Like putting a coal miner's lung or a set of juvenile sweet-rotted teeth on cigarette packs. Stick what you want on the packs and the bottles. We really don't care. You can stick a photo of Bernard Manning on every pack of burgers and they'll sell just the same. If you really want to stop the sale of something, write 'Government approved' on it.
This is, unfortunately, merely the tip of the heavily submerged Tory nanny-monster that will come to the surface as soon as Smooth Forehead replaces Crinkly Face in number ten. For the Tory nannying machine is only just firing up.
The row eclipsed the unveiling of the party's public health strategy, which was pitched as a war on binge Britain.
They aren't even in power yet and they have declared war on their own people. Not going well, Dave, not well at all.
Mr Lansley confirmed plans to increase taxes on super-strength drinks and said he would if necessary introduce legislation to ban cut-price supermarket deals on alcohol.
The Tories will set State approved pricing structures on private businesses. Are you sure your name is Cameron, Dave? Are you sure it's not Stalin?
He pledged to toughen up the licensing regime to make it easier to close down noisy or irresponsible bars and clubs.
Noisy bars? Where? Nobody will be allowed more than five units a month by the time you've finished. Those bars aren't likely to be noisy. They're more likely to be sullen. And empty. And closed. Good way to support small businesses, Mr. Alleged Tory.
But he rejected calls from the chief medical officer and the Commons health select committee to set a minimum price on all alcohol - claiming it would penalise moderate drinkers.
Oh, a spark of light in the man's brain at last. For now. We all know those medicos love to get their way and they'll make up any old number to do it. This policy will change. Not before the election, mind. The day after.
Mr Lansley's public health strategy also contained plans to tackle obesity by working with fast-food restaurants and bars to publicise calorie contents of their meals, and to reduce the sizes of portions.
The Tories will dictate portion sizes and recipes to private businesses. I have to ask about that name again, Dave. There's also the 'calorie content'. Who remembers when tobacco products had to display 'tar content'? Do you recall where that innocent little label led?
He said he wanted food packaging to show daily guideline amounts of fat, sugar and salt, and called for further restrictions on the marketing of unhealthy foods to children.
The Tories will dictate what food you and your children can and cannot buy. Certain foods will be age restricted and you will have to show ID to get them. You will not be able to buy them when your child is with you in case you're buying them for an under-age Mars bar muncher. They will have guideline daily amounts of food components. Like they now have guideline daily amounts of alcohol. Daily amounts they are to legislate to enforce. See where it's going? It's going in the same direction it always goes. Total control. For no reason other than total control.
There is absolutely nothing Tory in any of this. Where is the 'personal responsibility'? Where is the 'supporting small businesses'? This is pure far-left Brownian extreme socialism. If you vote Tory you might as well vote Labour because this manifesto is exactly the damn same. Whichever one of them gets in, it will make absolutely no difference to the rapid erosion of every right anyone in the country ever held. We will march ever onwards to a country in which every waking act is directed by the State and deviation will be punished.
Now come on, Davidovitch Stalin, you've been rumbled. When did you change your name to Cameron? Your party is about as Tory as Chairman Mao's. Your policies must be making the Brown Gorgon laugh harder than Mandelson's French Tickler. You are proposing things he hasn't managed to get away with himself yet.
The big story for the papers is none of the control freakery above. It's whether boozers should keep score in units or millilitres. That's the big issue here because...
One unit of alcohol is defined as one centilitre of pure alcohol anyway - so all that would change is the name.
Sigh. What's the point? The boozers won't even have to print new scorecards.
They're not finished yet:
Andrew Lansley yesterday promised 'a substantial sum of money' for the best suggestions on ways to tackle obesity, binge drinking, teenage pregnancy and other social problems.
Not content with all the controls they already plan, they want ideas for more. And they'll pay the Righteous for them. With our taxes. Once more, we'll all be paying people to order us around and abuse us if we don't comply with their idea of how we should live our lives.
Don't vote Tory. Please.
Vote Libertarian or UKIP or Independent or anything but don't vote Tory, Labour or Lib Dem.
They all have to go. There is no other way out of this.

Did you know that Britain has the highest number of Jewish Parliamentarians outside of Israel? 59 members of the Commons and the Lords. Mr Bilderberg is very pleased. Even the US doesn't have as many as us.
Now, about that bank bailout with OUR money, the atrocities in Gaza, the sale of the nations gold at rock bottom prices, Mandy meeting with Russian Oligarchs on yachts, the Rothschild's, David Kelly, etc.,...
Come on Windowlickers, do your worst.
UPDATE: Tories receive £15.95 Million from Jewish donations
The outdated offences of criminal libel and sedition have been abolished after the introduction of new laws.
The two offences were disposed of yesterday as Section 73 of the Coroners and Justice 2009 came into effect, sweeping away the old common law offences of sedition, seditious libel, obscene libel and defamatory libel.
The old offence of sedition - essentially an attack on the sovereign or institutions of government - included exciting disaffection against the institutions of government with an intention to incite violence or create public disorder.
Seditious libel was publishing seditious material in a written or permanent form.
Justice Minister Claire Ward said: "Sedition and seditious and defamatory libel are arcane offences - from a bygone era when freedom of expression wasn't seen as the right it is today.
"Freedom of speech is now seen as the touchstone of democracy, and the ability of individuals to criticise the state is crucial to maintaining freedom.
OH COMMENT: Alas, Dear Anna, Common Law is unalienable. It cannot be changed by lawyers or Parliamentarians and their "statute" admiralty law (which does not apply on land unless both parties consent. I do NOT) no matter how much they huff and puff.
I'm actually looking forward to being prosecuted under common law for "sedition". Guilty as charged.
Entry criteria are:
You must have a blog and be very very angry. No casual shoes. Or Members of Parliament. Or vegans.

Oh joy. The harrassment of choice of our friendly Police "service" has just been found illegal under European Human Rights Legislation.
The government's powers under the Terrorism Act to stop and search people without grounds for suspicion are illegal, a European court has ruled.
The European Court of Human Rights was giving its ruling in a case involving two people stopped near an arms fair in London in 2003.
It said the pair's right to respect for a private and family life under human rights laws had been violated.
It awarded them 33,850 euros (£30,399) in compensation.
The court said the stop and search powers were "not sufficiently circumscribed" and there were not "adequate legal safeguards against abuse".
- Number of people stopped nationwide by British Transport Police using s 44: 160,000
- Number of people stopped in London by the Metropolitan Police using s. 44: 200,000
- Number of people amongst the 360,000 stopped under s. 44 and found to have any terrorist material or links: 0
Time to get a claim in, methinks. Chicken Dinners all round.

The Country is in ruins. Our children will be in debt. Our grandchildren will be in debt. We are hated throughout the world. Our democracy lies in tatters.
Luckily, the £6 Million a year, 50 strong staff, taxpayer funded Quango, the British Potato Council have just issued a press release.
It's National Chip Week 15th - 21st February. You can win stuff. Chips probably. With Cheggers
My attention has been brought to a mischevious little website set up to annoy the 646. It takes the hassle out of abusing MPs by automatically formatting and sending the following speech by Cromwell to any MP you fancy
SUBJECT: You've Been Cromwelled!
In support of the people of
, the people of Britain have decided to Cromwell You! Our records show
that you have been 'Cromwelled'
times. In our humble opinion it should be none. You have no right
to steal from us, the very people you are expected to serve. The time has now come for the expenses system in Parliament to have a total
overhaul, and as such we the people demand that you stand with us and help facilitate this wish.
On the 20th April 1653 Oliver Cromwell made a speech to Parliament where he dismissed Parliament as the Members were corrupt in every way.
We the people resurrect this speech in the hope that it will remind you that you serve us, and not the other way around. Please find an excerpt
of the speech below:
On the 20th April 2010 we will be holding a protest outside the Houses of Parliament and will be calling for a Day of National Civil Disobedience.
The ball is now in your court, you can help this country be great again by supporting our call, or you can continue to be morally corrupt, which will result in you losing your seat in Parliament. Do not forget that the proposed date for the General Election is May 2010. The people will remember how you respond to this campaign. You have been warned!
This email has been sent on behalf of a voter via the website: www.youve-been-cromwelled.org.http://www.blogger.com/post-create.g?blogID=5540582362418355935
We are aware of your so called 'Parliamentary Protocol' where you shirk your responsibility to the people of Britain by only dealing with your constituents.
You serve us ALL! Please take the time to respond to this email and then visit the website.
Plus, they have declated April 20th 2010 as National Civil Disobedience Day. Fun includes:-
- Don't go to work.
When you work you get paid, when you get paid you pay taxes. Those taxes are abused by MP's. Take the day off but do not book it as holiday as your holiday pay is also taxed. Take unpaid leave. If you are an essential worker eg. Doctor, Nurse, Fireman, Police etc we are asking you to go to work but work for free like a day of volunteering. We appreciate times are hard but we think this is for the greater good.
- Don't do any shopping.
When you buy goods you are paying VAT. Vat is tax, tax funds the troughs of Parliament. Also if there are no customers, then the workers at the shop have the opportunity to march with us. If you really need to go to the shops for essential goods refuse to pay the VAT on the items. Explain to the shopkeeper that as a form of protest you do not want to fund the pigs in Parliament any longer. We are going to be writing to retail companies asking them to allow customers to buy goods without VAT. We will publish a list of companies that support our cause.
What interests me the most is that this gem was produced by an "independent National Health Consultant", Ray Addison and Norgine Ltd. Now to send an FOI request to find out exactly what this fucking madness cost the taxpayer.
From the start of the 'Gordon Bonkers' saga, Guido has been just a tad behind the music - as we shall see; but his now-at-last-revealed account of lunch with 'a former senior Downing Street advisor' in Autumn 2009 mirrors Nby/Slog editor John Ward's experience exactly. The advisor cited by Guido refers to the Prime Minister as 'a narcissistic, manic depressive'.
To judge from Guido's latest post, you'd never know I had anything to do with revealing this story. But the reality is that The First Post's Mole column picked up my September 4th piece - as did Blogosphere rising star Anna Raccoon, and via her the irrepressible Old Holborn. The more conservative Guido Fawkes was not minded, at that time, to go with it.....until The Independent took an interest.
Still, it's good to see Guido confirming it now. And adding, tantalisingly, 'there is lots more of this to come out about Brown…'
Indeed there must be - for the Guy News Man (very much a member of the Establishment these days) tends to keep his powder dry until he has his facts in a row.
Even without Guido's late entry as a runner re this one, there is already plenty to confirm the accuracy of nby's original story in Watt's book. The author's wife, having shared a supper with Brown, refers to him openly as 'bonkers'. Peter Watt himself writes of Gordo as 'not fit to be Prime Minister' - a near-identical phrase to the one my original source used. He also gives several examples of irrational behaviour by Brown, including:
*Running the country ‘by making it up as he goes along' and acute indecisiveness: classic symptoms of clinical depression.
*Being unable to tell lies from truth - first pointed up by Matthew Parris in the Spring of 2009, and confirmed by the revelation in Watt's book that Brown told blatant lies to Marr on live television (in October 2007) about 'hand on heart', never seriously considering an election.
*How Brown 'walked out of a Downing Street dinner party with US politicians because they sat down without his permission' - again, grandeur delusion associated with manically narcissistic phases of bipolar disorder.
Let us now revisit the key points from nby's September 2009 revelations:
*'"The Prime Minister of Great Britain is a man too ill to be holding the Office." This was the conclusion last week of a senior civil servant liaising regularly with Gordon Brown'.
*'One of the main sources of this story told us, "It's a farce, and utterly disgraceful. There isn't a mandarin in Whitehall who's unaware of Brown's condition"'.
*MAOIs: 'this older class of drugs has one huge advantage: for severe (ie manic)depression...it remains very effective'.
Remember too that we revealed Brown's deteriorating eyesight before any other news medium. This too was denied, then leaked, then farcically half-confirmed.
And as the anti-depressant usage speculation spread, each of Mandelson, Balls and Bradshaw smeared nby on television by referring to the allegations as 'fantasies and lies from an extreme right-wing blogsite'.
The mendacity of all three men is largely assumed these days. But after such fervent denials, news media (although not Raccoon and Holborn) steered clear of the Editor's new revelations. These too have proved to be robust: in particular, Alistair Darling's remark to an aide (about Brown) "that man has to go"; the spat between Balls and the Chancellor; the site's persistent conviction that Brown 'will not make it to the election' because of his continuing problems; and the Editor's contention only two days ago that, despite the Hoon/Hewitt fiasco, destabilisation of Brown would continue.
Not Born Yesterday stands by its sources, and on its track record. We predicted in May 2007 that Brown would 'unravel in public', based partly on the allegation we'd already heard (amongst other things) about Brown's anti-depressant usage a year before then. We led the pack on his likely mental health and eyesight problems. In this process, Guido Fawkes hung onto our coat-tails - but now claims the suit as his. Well, plus ca change: but based on my own enquiries over the last week, my instinct is that - late runner or not - this time the Gunpowder plotter is right enough: there is more to come out about what has been kept cynically from the electorate by Government spinners and Opposition cynics alike.
More and more real journalists are working harder than ever to nail the story once and for all; but in the immediate term, what might Guido have up his cavalier sleeve? Here's a tip: there is a certain well-placed lady who just might - after many sleepless nights and much persuasion - go public at last, and sink the multiply-torpedoed 'leader' that is Gordon Brown today.
UPDATE: See The Mole this morning.
