Short Rant on Extreme Political Correctness

Here, Here!

100 Days to Go #GE2015

Today represents 100 days until the UK General Election of 2015. Which means we still have three months of this sort of cringe-worthy political squirming as seen when Andrew Neil interviewed Natalie Bennett, leader of the Greens on his Sunday Politics show yesterday Actually, it’s worth watching even if you’re not interested in British Politics […]

The End of Page 3 #nomorepage3

So it looks like The Sun’s Page 3 has gone the way of the dodo. And to be honest, I don’t know how I feel about it. First thing’s first, I don’t read The Sun. I don’t even look at the pictures. My dad still buys it every day, and for a while in my […]

A Sign of Things to Come – It’s going to be a Long 7 Months

Last week, The Labour Party released a secretly recorded tape of a Government Minister, Lord Freud, making ill-advised comments about disabled people and the minimum wage. Now, it’s clear this was a cynical attempt by Labour to make the minister and the Government look bad – part of Labour’s election strategy for next May is […]

The Hot Seat Takeover Controversy

So, it seems there’s been a bit of a hooha over the last couple of days over the reaction of a well-known, popular author of erotic novels to some members of his street team taking part in a “Hot Seat” takeover in a closed Facebook group that got a little… shall we call it “lively”? […]

Feeling Grumpy about having nothing to feel Grumpy About

It’s odd, but I started this Grumpy Blog so I could bitch and moan about all the things that annoy me in life. And then what happens? I stop feeling Grumpy because life just sort of seems to be going well. Ain’t it always the way? So, I figure that the best thing to do […]

Facebook idiocy strikes again

I have no words. Really, I don’t. This article in the Daily Mail (again – sorry), is about Facebook removing the page for Warwick University Rowing Club because they were using it to promote their charity calender, because they thought it was pornographic. Well, that’s how the Mail put it, but we all know that […]

So Much for Equality

This comes from the Daily Mail (no surprise there then). A wife has been fined £300 for assaulting her husband, who has MS and needed 13 stitches. The article treats it as a joke story, but I can’t help think that if *he* had assaulted *her* then the sentence would have much more severe. Maybe […]

Nuisance Calls

This weekend I took a call from a very nice lady in, I believe judging from her accent, India who offered to “help you with your computer”. Well, that’s a technical inaccuracy. I didn’t take the call. My son was next to the handset so he answered it, couldn’t understand what was being said and […]

One day ‘An eminent Lord’ – and the next – ‘A Child Sex Apologist’

Always an interesting read, Anna Raccoon hits the nail on the head with this one. My, oh, my – the Conspiri-loons are fair drumming their heels in the Twitter aisles this morning. Monstrous tantrums. So near the sweetie counter – and yet so far! Was it only Monday – two days ago – that Baroness Elizabeth Butler-Sloss […]
