Who Does She Think She Is?

I refuse to use a hot water bottle!

OMG, say it ain’t so, the Queen (yes, Elizabeth, Charles’ mom) is rumored to have asked the British government for money from a fund for the poor to help keep her palaces warm. She got the “hell no” because officials feared it would spell a PR disaster for the monarch (ya think?). Damn shame they couldn’t block the freedom of information legislation! Despite getting £15 million in state grants for the upkeep of her palaces per year the rising cost of gas and electricity forced her to beg for “more please”. Royal aides inquired if it was possible to dig into the coffers of a government scheme that was set up to help people on low income, to pay for  four new heat and power units at Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle. I bet you Fergie is snickering as we speak!

Sell Crazy Somewhere Else

Go away, you don't exist!

You know if a friggin alien taps you on the shoulder in Britain there soon won’t be a damn thing you can do about it. All hail the British Defense Ministry who have declared war on those crazy UFO sighting people. They have announced that from now on any of you fruitcakes who’ve spied some friggin flying saucer hovering around your backyard,  seen an alien crop circling or you’ve been abducted and anally probed your  initially report will be taken seriously AND put  on file but only for 30 days . After that, you are on your own, the file will be destroyed and any chance of creditability will be erased.
The reasoning behind this is the British government see this service as a waste of defense resources.Really? Hmm, it sounds more like the ministry wants the info exempt from freedom of information laws which has allowed campaigners to force the government to disclose details of apparent UFO encounters. Ya think?  Wakey, wakey, it’s the friggin 21st century, just type or scan  the report onto your computer and viola…there forever. Gosh, do I have to show you everything? Aliens 1, true believers 0.

UFO Files Censored

Last week after a great deal of hullabaloo from the general pubic about freedom of information yada, yada, yada, the British government released the Ministry of Defence UFO files. And we are talking friggin files upon files dating from 1994-2000.Weird alien abductions, flying saucers, strange skin rashes, tubes of light,you name it, its all there for all the world to see. So anywho, you would have thought it would have shut the x-filers up for a while. Nope, no sirree, now they are now bitching about the “blacked out” bits. Hmm, seems the “uncomplimentary comments”, made by military and police (where I assume they were pulling the piss big time) have been edited out. Oh boo, that would have been the most entertaining part. However, some of the more suspicious and cynical buffs believe there is more to the censoring of the files. Of course!

Psst To all you UFO buffs, click here for the Ministry of Defence  files and knock yourself out!

Alan Turing Gets An Apology 57 Years Too Late

And so after 59 years Prime Minister Gordon Brown has finally apologized to Alan Turing on behalf of the British government. Whoa, feeling a little bit unloved there Mr Brown? Alan Turing was a code cracking genius and modern computing pioneer who was an invaluable asset to the British government during World War II. You all remember the movie Enigma right? Hmm, well Mr Turing had one little secret, he was gay. In 1952 the code cracker was arrest and convicted of “homosexual acts” and for his troubles was chemically castrated. Two years later a sad and broken Turing committed suicide by chomping on a cyanide-laced apple. Geez, they had such dramatic ways back then!
Hmm, now don’t be thinking Gordon Brown came up with this apologetic act on his own people, nope this was in direct response to a petition organized by computer scientist John Graham-Cumming. The petition was signed by over 30,000 people including Richard Dawkins and Ian McEwan. There is now a push to persuade the Queen to give Alan Turing a posthumous knighthood. Why not, she hands them out willy nilly anyways.

Part of Mr Brown’s speech read “Alan and the many thousands of other gay men who were convicted as he was convicted under homophobic laws were treated terribly.On behalf of the British Government, and all those who live freely thanks to Alan’s work I am very proud to say: we’re sorry, you deserved so much better.”

So That’s Why They Are Called ASYLUM Seekers?

Who friggin fed you and housed you?

Who friggin fed you and housed you?

An asylum seeker who got rejected because he used a fake passport is suing the British Government for £150,000 for breaching his human rights and damaging his health.When  Fridoon Sadiqi from Afghanistan entered Britain under false documents in 1999 his application was rejected and so to every other application and appeal he tried there after. Using every legal avenue available to him Sadiqi has managed to stay in Britain for 10 years fighting the immigration ruling.  In all that time he has spent only 3 weeks in a detention centre, the rest a free man. But it is those three week in which he is claiming he suffered post traumatic stress disorder. In response to his latest legal battle Conservative MP Ann Widdecombe said ‘If his treatment has been so bad here, then why doesn’t he find another country to go claim asylum in?’

Psst Lets see him try getting £150,000 from the Taliban ,aren’t they ones who got him in this mess in the first place. More friggin stress there , I say!
