Hi. Me again. You may remember me from the bygone times when I used to update the blog. Well, things have been busy – you know how it is. It doesn’t mean I don’t think about you.

So, way back when, I mentioned my 3 tasks for the year.

One of the things that we don’t talk about here is the feckless administration in charge of the Northampton Borough Council. We had a disastrous Lib Dem administration leading up to 2011, when they were replaced with a Conservative administration that promised to sort out all of Northampton’s issues.

We were watching the toe-curlingly bad British Olympc Party thing on the BBC yesterday afternoon. At the VISA sponsored shenanigans in London. we saw the stars of the Queen Musical ‘We Will Rock You’ and the BBC Saturday night talent show ‘Last Choir Standing’.


Meantime, in Beijing, we get Boris twittering on about . . . → Read More: Olympian:


I listened to the George Osborne speech on my lunch break today, and when he announced that he would raise the inheritance tax threshold to ONE MILLION POUNDS, I was struck by how much it sounded like Dr Evil from that first Austin Powers film, and how that would make for a fine piece . . . → Read More: Mini:
