Bugger. The BBC, Aunty Beeb, that august maker of quality images feeding into our living rooms, from Andy Pandy, Dr Who to This Life. Its become part of the Nanny State; don't do as we do, do as we say. Not content with becoming the mouthpiece for NuLabour, the BBC is pursuing a leftist news policy. It has anti-British reporters in the Middle East and America, it's new programmes are reduced to inaccurate snippets fed through a leftist/greenie filter so that real facts are distorted.
Well, bugger the BBC. We have Sky News, CNN (Oh, the Comedy News Network, maybe not) and the Blogosphere, that place where the rantings and opinions of everyman are launched onto the global net. And, of course, the newspapers. Us in Britain are lucky in that we have a broad spectrum to read or believe.
Plus, giant lobsters are very menacing.

Bored. Bored with working. Bored at home. Sat in front of my laptop drinking vodka on Sunday. Doing this far too often. Full off plans to do a long mtb ride and climb in the Pyrenees. Actually doing bugger-all. Didn't even bother to go out last weekend because I had a bit of a cold. Had fireworks on Saturday night. And that was the highpoint of the last few weeks. Really.
