This is a collection of thoughts and statements about things that annoy me. I am a big, angry man. Hear me roar, or piss off and give me peace.

Bin laden?

The Beeb tells us that Edinburgh cuntcil is now 4 weeks behind on bin collections in the city.

I can see the point of the refuse collection specialists (binmen) - if they're having to do overtime all the time, then surely the cuntcil should change the routes / hours of work and base salary so they don't have to work overtime or so much overtime just to do the "normal" job. It's just dumb, but then it's just typical of government contracts, isn't it?

So now we are in the position where the cuntcil is paying a private firm to do what their own workers should be doing...

Here's a suggestion for my fellow residents of Edinburgh:

Stop paying council tax, and overthrow the council.

We can do this better ourselves.

BrewDog Burbling...

The Metro this morning has a wee article about a (probably exciting) new offering from BrewDog - the 18.2% "Tokyo" beer. (Which I haven't tried yet)...

A 330ml bottle of Tokyo , made by BrewDog, contains six units of alcohol, which is twice the recommended daily limit.

Would that be the entirely made up limits that we found out were all lies in 2007?

Of course, the fake charity Alcohol Focus Scotland is quoted as saying something dreary about how we're all doomed.

What would we do without all this nannying? Perhaps taking some personal responsibility? But that would do the nanny types out of their public funded jobs, which would not do.

Godzilla wouldn't stand for it, and neither should we! Get the piano wire and a locate a robust lamppost!

I for one welcome our new beery overlords!

Attack of the Evil Terrorist Photographers!

Via The Register, a chap got arrested for taking pictures of Chatham High Street.
"Alex Turner was taking snaps in Chatham High St last Thursday, when he was approached by two unidentified men. They did not identify themselves, but demanded that he show them some ID and warned that if he failed to comply, they would summon police officers to deal with him."
We are seeing more and more of this sort of nonsense, with jumped up officious little twats in the police harassing people in the street and abusing their power.

I am with the Anonymous Coward on TheReg, who suggests:
"Someone should start a twit/book campaign for a national "photograph the police" day, if everyone is doing it, they can't stop us all"

All this CCTV around these days, and when that chap took a photo, the police claimed to feel threatened. Well boo-fucking-hoo. And then the police wonder why people don't trust or respect them!

There's a reckoning coming.

Hippies in idiocy (almost) shocker

The Hootsman tells us that a Disaster! was averted after a power cable was dug up by the hippies...

"The protesters set about digging up an 11KVA underground power cable, despite being told how dangerous it was and how it would affect the power supplies of local people of Douglas and the nearby hospital."

Were it not for the hospital potentially being affected by this, I'd say let the hippy bastards dig it up and electrocute themselves, and maybe flashover will take out a few more, and give others nearby a tan.

Drinking with The Devil

Well, the first I knew that The Devil was in town, was when he wandered in to my / our / his local...

I wasn't brave enough to take a picture though, in case he possessed my camera...

A pleasure as always.

Reductio ad Hitlerum

It would seem Al Bore is playing the Hitler card...

The Hootsman reports:
"CLIMATE change poses as great a threat to civilisation as the Nazis did during the Second World War, former US vice-president Al Gore said yesterday."

I wonder when I'll get locked up for AGW denial...
