There's quite a few in Whitehall and the judiciary that think seditious libel should still be on the statute book with discretionary sentencing - an extension to contempt if you like.

I'd like to see sneering journos actually trying that on with USMC - operators of Marine One - who actually have to call the fly / no fly. The stupidest quote of the day from a journalist - "the weather looks OK here" - a phrase that has had me melting the insulation off telephone wires to head office in the past.

@Douglas - I'd be surprised if DJT didn't know that Macron is a remote controlled bankster puppet - hence he doesn't even seem to be acknowledging that he's there at all - and looks like a golden retriever waiting for his dinner.

@Tomo I just realised today and someone has already tweeted
\\ Yes, they abolished the literal blasphemy act,
and then turned right around and started pumping out 'hate crime' laws,
which is de facto blasphemy law.
Don't believe me?
Try going to a public space with a Koran, start ripping out pages and dismiss it as nonsense.//

Lots of Beeboids sneering "Trump is afraid of rain"

WhiteHouse say the protocol is he must travel by helicopter, and it can't fly in rain storms

OMG - Whatever was Macron thinking? But sure as hell Trump wasn't impressed.

I just spotted a coincidence with another show....... we need a Foreign Secretary called Clarkson to have the full set.

Coincidence? Yep, the worst of both: Captain slow & ditherer May; Erratic and accident prone Hammond. None of the positives: happy, successful, informative, pleasant, freedom loving.

The missing: Kenneth Bruce - Clarke's son?

For politicians seeking to keep their jobs, Fear of Climate Science should be a recognised phobia. This is why:

Oh I know.... boy, do I know.... - but I doubt that I can keep a straight face long enough to pass the interview for funding at OpenSociety or other likeminded funders that provide startup/seed funding for "community" projects.

I'd rather gather a debit card crowd. A mild problem is that interest rates are so low so that funding from deposit interest would be very low - but there must be a way around that ...

Running a legitimate and honest protest "rent strike" isn't a trivial proposition. It would though put the wind up 'em I'm sure.

Given that the big utilities are paying the climate levy (while denying and not responding to requests for explanation) and the tiddlers are exploiting the cost benefit of not paying it.... the "market" is distorted - so an escrow protest might garner some indignation from incumbents / blobbers and force some debate?

I don't want to ban Smart Meters ..... I want them to be actually smart - and get the lowest cost for my preferred source of electricity. Hey, Alexa what am I paying for electricity this evening and how does that compare with last week?

btw I'm being peppered with online advertising for "Bio LPG" - which looks like yet another torturing of language by the sustainability / renewable energy crew - as in - have they changed the meaning of the letter "P"?

How subsidies breed corruption

£90k bus pass cheats: Travel firm boss and his three sons who used passes that had been lost or whose owners had died to con council AND hid £500,000 of company's takings are jailed for total of 28 years

@Tomo Banning smart meters
.. .. There is a modern technique that can be applied
... Gather a pitchfork mob and get them to sign a petition that says smartmeters are "witches" or "far right" or promote "hate"
... you won't need any proof just shouting that is enough.
..... That's how it works with Youtube, Twitter, Paypal etc.
as the libmob try to turn them into echo-chambers

Ross Lea, This useless government is unlikely to cause a full scale panic as no-one takes them seriously.


The Left-Wing Remainers don't trust Tories.
The Right-Wing Remainers don't trust the media (BBC) who report what the useless government is saying.

Project Fear is now irrelevant.
