Much better to get their grandfathers to vote. They’re not so worried about the future.

Damn, I suppose now he’ll be going back to England for a bit of bloodthirsty killing of the weak and defenceless.

Anyone know if she’s supporting Corbyn this week?

Goodness me, they must be perfect.

Yep, well, that’s what we thought, Ken, but Mrs May knows better.

Funny how the elderly readership of the Mail hark back to the good old days when they were young. The Tories are going to grant them their wish…rickets anyone?

Nothing about the bins, or education, or roads or libraries or housing…?
A tory win
And 22.5% is, as we all know, a resounding win.

Eilean Donan suffers a catastrophic drought…

…or maybe the tide just went out for a bit?

adaily mail

The Daily Mail informs us that food prices are likely to rocket because of the drought. Or at least that is how they will explain how much more food is costing thanks to the value of sterling against the Euro and the Dollar.

Of course, the prolonged dry weather has presented farmers with problems and yes, it is probable that more food will have to be imported (at a greater cost because of the poor value of the pound).

However, the dear old Daily Mail gets it seriously wrong when it comes to Eilean Donan Castle which they use to illustrate how bad the drought is, using one photograph purporting to have been taken last July, and one taken this year. Oh, intrepid Daily Mail photographer venturing THAT far north.

But all is not as it seems.

You see…(taken from Wikipedia) “Eilean Donan (Scottish Gaelic: Eilean Donnain) is a small tidal island where three sea lochs meet, Loch Duich, Loch Long and Loch Alsh, in the western Highlands of Scotland. A picturesque castle that frequently appears in photographs, film and television dominates the island, which lies about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from the village of Dornie. Since the castle’s restoration in the early 20th century, a footbridge has connected the island to the mainland”.

The clues are in “tidal island” and “sea lochs”.

So, dear old Daily Mail, unhappily, twice a day, every day, for as long as anyone can remember and before, the castle has suffered a drought… and happily, twice and day, every day, for as long as anyone can remember and yes, even before, water has been restored.

Ya set of roasters.

AN APOLOGY WOULD BE APPRECIATED, MAY

Sometimes, when you hear about some of the things this woman does and says, and you wonder how she gets through a morning, never mind a whole day.

If I were PM and I felt the need to make an allegation of corruption about the SNP, or any other party,  I’d make absolutely certain that I had documentary evidence to hand, so that the moment the claim was contested, I could provide said evidence to back up my allegations.

The fact that the Tories seem unable to provide a shred of evidence and that Nicola Sturgeon (a lawyer) has refuted the claim, suggests to me that it is false.

How silly was that? Still, as they say, a lie can travel a thousand miles before the truth has got its boots on, and she has a compliant media to ensure that that happens.

And this is the person who, if we don’t wise up VERY soon and vote her out, will be leading negotiations on the most important change in our lives in 40 years. And worse, she will be up against intelligent, educated trained people who actually know what they are talking about. What chance does she have with Davis, Johnson, and the disgraced ex-defence minister, Fox?

CPS confirms: UK electoral law unenforcable. While labour movement accounts for every penny, billionaires can buy any election they want.

Incidentally, “all the major parties and the Scottish nationalists (sic)”? OK, obviously to the English prime minister, the SNP is not a major party, it doesn’t stand in her country so it has no representatives at all there. But in OUR united kingdom (an expression of which she is overly fond), it is the third largest party in parliament so May would have been correct, by English standards, to say “BOTH the major parties and the Scottish Nationalists”, but not “ALL the major parties…”

Just a small point but either she thought she was being clever (not something I’d immediately associate with her, and if she was trying it,  it failed and came out as snide and stupid), or she is so England-centric that she doesn’t really see anything much past Surrey. Either is possible.
