"Extrordinary Rendition"

On the recent news, they were talking about the UK being used for the above.
What a perverse phrase to use!
If it happened in any third world country, they would call it
"Kidnapping" and/or "terrorist activity",
but we have to try and tone it down by calling it "rendition".
What a load of rubbish!
It is kidnapping by any name, whoever does it.

For those who think that the Foot & Mouth crisis (and now Bird Flu) was dealt with properly, Think Again!
Have a look at the website;

to see how the effects are still lingering, and to understand how the handling of it was both inept,
and possibly illegal.
The policy of culling, still seems to be the preferred option by DEFRA, and they will still not accept that there are now vastly more effective tests available, even though these tests have been proven in the field.
Another case of self interest perhaps, or do the politicians own shares in certain companies that handled the crisis???

Hybrid Polar Bears!

I had to chuckle in a cynical way when reading the news that a
"white bear with brown patches" is the first grizzly-polar hybrid in the wild.
Not any more its not!!!
They shot it!
Oh look, its different, lets kill it!
Maybe they have been taking lessons from Mr Bush?

If you want to save energy then change your light bulbs.
There are now several places where it is easy to obtain energy efficient bulbs, and
it saves ENERGY and MONEY,
Have a look at;
for some ideas.

Politics & more politics

Why am I not surprised that John Prescott is not going to face any charges regarding his mis-use of office?

Some time ago at least one policeman was ordered to complete community service for having sex while on duty! You would have (rightly) assumed then that someone holding high office would be required to adhere to a higher standard, well, you would be wrong! The current crop of power crazy clones have the gall to do what they like whenever they like and if you dont like it then "tough".

This government have also ridden roughshod, yet again, over the rights of a significant percentage of this nations farmers, with their mis-handling of the farm payments scheme.
Wales managed to administer their scheme with reasonable efficiency, as did Scotland. England however managed to make a complete cock-up of it! So what happens?
Ms Beckett moves to another position and the problems she presided over are ignored again!

Lets face it, if you really dont want farmers, then at least have the guts to say so, rather than driving them into abject poverty.

On the Palestine/Israel front (sic), it would appear that the international community, having almost refused to recognise the elected leaders of Palestine, now appear to be trying to remove them by fuel shortages and starvation. Democracy the American way or not at all!

So, you must remember your pin for your credit cards now,
according to the banks, it is so much safer.
If that is the case, why have Shell just had to shut their system down;

Do they really expect us to believe it?
The only reason they want to use it, is to speed up processing and cut their costs.
Security does not come into it!

Loon Musings For Today.

Why do they call MPs "The right honorable"?
So far it seems that most are frequently wrong, and even less honorable.
Dear old Mrs Bucket (sorry, Beckett) is a prime example of this.
