Like the BNP, I hope UKIP ultimately find themselves in the dustbin of history.
(not satire – it’s the UKIP!)
Former BNP leader Nick Griffin has said he now supports UKIP and is going to vote for them at the next election:
Probably not the kind of endorsement UKIP were looking for.
But anyone thinking of voting for UKIP should remember that – if they do – they will now be comrades in arms with the BNP.

We certainly do NOT need cuts. The Labour Party should take this on board, return to their roots and inform the people that taxing according to your ability to pay, halting tax evasion/avoidance would easily supersede any saving austerity might bring and for the majority is the fairest way.
The BBC have a story today on their website called “Will the public accept the cuts to come?” The first sentence is “Whoever wins the election, more cuts are on their way.” Cuts are inevitable, end of discussion. The article then goes on to list all the areas of public spending that could be under threat, and whether the public will stand for what’s coming. While it’s certainly true that all the main parties agree they need to “balance the budget”, and think they need to cut spending by roughly the same amount in order to do so, the question of whether we actually need to balance the budget or to achieve this through cuts to expenditure is far from a settled question. The BBC can argue it is being impartial by saying that all parties agree cuts are coming, by unquestioningly accepting the need for cuts, it’s not really providing…

(not satire – it’s the UKIP!)
Both the Tories and the UKIP have been making political capital recently by linking Labour with the child grooming scandal in Rotherham.
So it must be a bit awkward for UKIP that one of their regional chairmen – Peter Entwistle – has just himself been jailed for grooming children, as well as possession of indecent images of children.
And I’d imagine it’s also a bit awkward for the Tory high command that one of their party’s MPs – Alistair Burt – wrote a letter to the court in support of Entwistle referencing the former Bury UKIP chairman’s “good character”.
So awkward in fact, probably best we keep this information to ourselves.

(not satire – it’s social security today!)
If you want an illustration of the mess created by Iain Duncan Smith in our social security system and the incompetence of the present government, you only need to see this letter from the DWP to a 90-year-old woman ordering her to attend a job related interview which was posted online by her grandson:
Or maybe it’s not a mistake at all.
Work till we drop?

I have heard of a great king, ruler of all Britain; and yet, there is no physical evidence he ever existed. But ask any Englishman who Arthur was, and they’ll at least tell you he was king of England.
I once heard of a great revolutionary; he took from the rich to feed the poor; ask any Englishman, and they’ll almost certainly say ‘Robin Rood’. And yet, there is no physical evidence he ever existed, either.
Now, if I say there was a great Jew, who was given to us by God, to cleanse us of our sins, we accept his existence without any physical evidence.
I’ll share with you my last pound, if you are starving. I’ll give you my last breath, if you are dying.
I am not sure where this is going, I just know that the altruism I learned as a child seems to be dead now; selfishness is the new love- to love oneself above all others seems to be the new raison d’etre.
Then, if we insist on following this nouveau ideology we shall surely find ourselves lonely, longing for the contact of our fellow man.
By the time we realise this mistake, it may be too late; we may be so insular that we can no longer countenance such contact, the very contact that breeds our humanity.
For me, I doubt it will matter too much; for my kids, I fear the world they will grow old in.
Stars including One Direction, Emeli Sande, Rita Ora and Ed Sheeran have recorded a new version of the Band Aid charity single to raise money to help Myleene Class in her fight against the spread of the deadly mansion tax.
The recording of the reworked Do They Know It’s Christmas – which also included Ellie Goulding, Sam Smith, Chris Martin and Bono – comes exactly 30 years after the original Band Aid song was released to help eradicate the severe famine of attention which was being suffered by large numbers of 1980s pop stars at the time.
Victims of the deadly mansion tax – a disease which effects humans and other primates earning over several million a year – typically display symptoms such as intense whining and constant bouts of moaning, followed by copious vomiting of bullshit from several orifices.
And in the final stages of the mansion tax, sufferers afflicted by the disease often experience dangerously high blood…
