For those of us in Scotland, Munguin asked me to remind you that the clocks will change on Sunday morning. (Apologies for the early appearance of SS … not associated at all with the English Government… This was due to clumsiness on the part of Tristan, who will be docked a week’s wages.)

I can’t help but think we’re going a bit overboard on the old union flag…


Nick Eardley@nickeardleybbc

UK govt says has issued new guidance saying the Union flag should be flown on Government buildings every day.

I imagine that this decree is for England, although presumably the hideous concrete monstrosity that they have sicked up in the middle of our capital will be included… as well as all the new offices they are building in Glasgow and their nuclear bases close by.

We should probably, therefore, learn more about it if it’s going to be forced in our face at every turn. So here’s a wee video about it:


Maybe it should become compulsory to have a flag on your car?


Or maybe we’ll be forced to shave out heads and wear an England no surrender tattoo where our brains used to be...

It’s also possible that we may be forced to wear a uniform when we go to the pub so that foreigners will immediately recognise our superiority. Smart, huh?


And possibly, by Johnstonian degree babies may be born with a Jack on their foreheads to proclaim to the world that they are pf a superior race with a regime that will last a thousand years.


Personally, I think that (if you’ll pardon the rudeness) this is what they can do with their flag, at least in Scotland.


1. Oh dear. It seems like The Majority don’t spell too well.
2. But I see Mr Jhonstoon is taking the pet for a pee pee.
3. Still at least there’s something good happening as far as Brexit is concerned… isn’t it?
4. Oh… bother… hmmmm.
5. There’s always someone worse off…
6. Also she didn’t go to Eton.
7. Nileg’s new office?
8. I wonder if Brexiteers follow a particular dietary regime, or maybe it’s the exercise they get changing the channel on the tv?
9. No, sir, please don’t show us your boxers.
10. Great British English values. Statues before people.


Advanced warning of a few sweary words.

2. Comhghairdeas, Éire.

A POLICE officer pulls over a woman for speeding.

“Is there a problem, officer?”

“Ma’am, you were speeding. May I see your driver’s licence please?

“I don’t have one. I lost it for drunken driving.

“Can I see your vehicle identification papers?”

“Nope, can’t do that either. I stole the car. I killed the driver and put his body in the boot.”

The cop reaches for his phone and calls for back-up. Police cars start arriving from several directions. A senior officer approaches her, pistol drawn.

“Ma’am, open the boot please.”

She does so. It’s empty.

“Is this your car, ma’am?
She hands him the registration papers.

‘Your driver’s licence?”

She hands it over. The police chief is nonplussed.

“I was given to understand that you have no driver’s licence, no registration papers and you stole the car and murdered the owner.”

“I suppose the lying bastard also said I was speeding.”



·      When I told my contractors I didn’t want carpeted steps, they gave me a blank stare.

·      I’m trying to organise a hide and seek tournament but good players are really hard to find.

·      I went to the toy store and asked the assistant where the Schwarzenegger dolls are, and he replied: “Aisle B back.”


THREE senior citizens are strolling and chatting on the beachfront.

“It’s windy today.”

“No, it’s Thursday.”

“Me too. Let’s have a beer.”


8. Somehow Andi’s made him sound more sensible that he really is…
