Normal Service Resumes

After a rather hazy interlude, I'm back. I hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year. So it's farewell to the boom 'n' bust decade, although technically it isn't really the end of the decade yet, and here's looking forward to the next.

2010 will be busy politically with the impeding General Election when hopefully Brown will be thrown out of office. I can't wait.

So while I catch up on my hundreds of unread posts in my RSS reader here's a round-up of a number of stories that caught my eye over the last week or so:

  1. Jack Straw decides the best way to win the police vote is to insult them.

  2. Labour start the new year as they mean to go; determined to continue their in-fighting right until the bitter end.

  3. Lithuania lays off 1000s of workers for the new year as a result of shutting down its only nuclear power plant. This shutdown was a key condition for Lithuania's entry to the EU.

  4. Spain takes over the Presidency of Council of the European Union.

  5. Obama appears weak on the attempted Christmas Day terrorist attack.

  6. Brown gives the go ahead for the introduction of full body scanners at UK airports. Not immediately though but 'as soon as possible', because the UK first needs permission from its real government - the EU Commission- in order to protect its own borders.

  7. Brown appears to confirm the election will be May 6th.

  8. EU drives up the price of batteries in the New Year as a result of the Waste Batteries and Accumulators Regulations 2009, based on EU Directive 2006/66/EC.

  9. Global Warming was in full force over Christmas.

  10. MEPS will have subsidised skiing trips to the Alps.

  11. More binge drinking nonsense from the usual suspects. Yawn!

  12. A woman sues a New York restaurant after a stuffed mouse falls on her head. I'm not laughing honest!
