Friday Funnies by Microdave


Welcome to Friday Funnies. The good news is that Nigel Evans has been cleared of all charges at Preston Crown Court of buggering young men. The bad news is that he can now re-enter Parliament and continue buggering the country. In response, this Dutch restaurant is considering setting up a franchise in the HOC… From the reports of “Dirty Deeds” ... Read More »

Well here they are: The Only Answer: Self-Government ... Read More »

A Glimmer Of Hope

featured AnInconvenient Truth

I case any of you wondered, I am not (and never likely to be) a parent. There are many good and bad aspects to this, but one I don’t have any qualms about is bringing children up in the society we have now. The free and easy childhood most of us can remember is gone, unlikely to return. Instead it’s ... Read More »

Here you go, another Open Thread for general discussion. Why not give your views on the announcement by Adam Afriyie that he intends to try and force a Referendum on EU membership before the end on this parliament. It’s apparently enraged David Cameron, but that’s not surprising, as he doesn’t really want to give us to leave anyway. The chances ... Read More »

Carbon Tax Cartoon Time


“And now for something completely different” – to quote Monty Python. MaxFarquar regular “Cheerful Soul” sent me a selection of cartoons from Down Under (the cartoons that is, not him), which poke fun at two faced PM, Julia Gillard. She has achieved notoriety for claiming that she would never introduce a Carbon Tax, and then doing precisely that once in ... Read More »
