PC madness Part 1

As you may know, I hate political correctness almost as much as I hate Bliar and Brown. I saw a wonderful story today in the paper.

A childrens' zoo and theme park have a railway on their premises that is themed and is based on Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends. Occasionally, one of the workers at the zoo dresses up as the Fat Controller, Sir Topham Hatt. This is very popular with the children so the zoo decided to advertise for a full time Fat Controller.

The only problem is that the zoo authorities have been advised that they cannot advertise specifically for anyone who is (a) of not inconsiderable girth and (b) a man!!!

Presumably their advisers would be as happy for a Posh Spice lookalike to be given the job as for a John Prescott lookalike!!!

If you have a chance when voting, please vote for anyone who promises to make political correctness a criminal offence.

Things I hate (Part 1)

I am a grumpy old git and I hate lots of things. If any of you think I should be making positive comments, I have plenty of those but the bleeding hearts would not like them!

Some of the things I like to hate:

  • Politicians (especially champagne socialists)
  • Political correctness
  • Soccer
  • Microsoft software
  • Bleeding heart "It's all our fault" sociologists
  • Ecofacists
  • Ken Livingstone
  • Tony Bliar
  • Gordon Brown
  • David Cameron

    That will do for now.Plenty more to come. Watch this space.

    Why are England teams all crap at the moment?

    The England cricket team have just proved they are crap, we have known for a long time that the England Soccer team are crap, and the England Rugby Union Team are not much better. At least they have got rid of their really crap coach and have started to rebuild under a new one.

    Why is this? We have enough talent around to be world beaters in all of these sports. I think the answer is political. I suspect that the present government (if you can apply such a definitive word to such a bunch of incompetents) is doing the one thing it does well, i.e. interfere and spin. I wonder how much political pressure has been applied to ensure the choice of inept coaches in the last five years? Like the rest of England, all of our internatonal sports teams are 100% demoralised!

    It is obvious that it would suit the present shower who think they are in charge of the country if the English identity were to disappear. No-one in their right mind who is from England will ever vote for Das NeuArbeiterPartei again, so it suits for England to be removed from the collective memory. Divide and rule, I think it is known as. Before you ask, I would much prefer it if the United Kingdom stayed United, but I cannot see how this can possibly happen now, thanks to Bliar and his cohorts.

    Like I have said before, it is the time for all right thinking people to GET MAD and GET BAD!

    The world gone mad

    What the hell is happening?

    Sailors who failed in their duty getting six figures sums of dosh from the gutter press for doing so.

    A government minister approving of the former. (Presumably so the sailors do not blab about how poorly trained and equipped they are, thanks to the Tartan Tax Thief).

    One of those sailors being a mother of a young kid. Bad enough to have women on the front line, but a MOTHER!!! I am not, like the islamofacists do, suggesting the subjugation of women, but there are some things that women are not really suited for (and also some that men are not suited for).

    A couple of barmy bishops saying what a wonderful guy Ahmadinejad is as he is so charitable as to release the hostages.

    The only thing to say to this is for all sensible people to get real and GET MAD!!!!

    Grammar schools

    I see from a recent report that bright kids at comprehensive schools are held back by being put in mixed ability classes. The only surprising thing is that anyone should find this odd.

    I was lucky enough to go to a proper grammar school, before it became a private school, but both my kids went to an, admittedly very good, comprehensive. While they both went to Uni and have succeeded in their chosen professions, I am convinced they would both have passed their eleven plus and gone to grammar school, where they would have done even better.

    Grammar schools are also the only way that bright kids from less well off backgrounds can get a good education. I think one problem is many people think that education is all about the kids. It is not, it is about ensuring that the upcoming generation is as competent, or more so, than the previous. This is clearly not the case at the moment.

    Maybe the eleven plus is not the best way to choose pupils for grammar schools, although whatever method chosen should involve some stress. You are, after all, selecting the next generation of leaders.

    So, political wonks out there, if you want my vote, BRING BACK GRAMMAR SCHOOLS!!

    April Fool

    There does not seem much point in trying to pull any April Fools stunts this year. Real life seems to have overtaken the pranksters in every way!

    For example:

    • Mad Ken Livingstone tries to get even more people travelling on the already overcrowded and under resourced Tube network by letting all children under 11 travel free
    • Once every one has been forced onto the Tube, the Glorious Peoples' Union of Train Drivers or whatever they call themselves start voting about going on strike so no-one can use the Tube, even if they wanted to.
    • Bogeyman Brown ups tax on everything (but especially cars) so it costs people even more to get around
    • On an entirely different track, the Pope announces there really is a Hell. I KNOW, I am living in it. It is called Bliar's Britain, or should that be Bogeyman's Britain!
    Doh!!! I give up on this list, there are just too many things to document at one time. Back to the pre-lunch Scotch!
