Ponderable Pix

A selection of images stolen completely at random and with no sense of guilt.... Eeh, the good old days. (Bengal 1903). That's yer lot. CR.

Politics Is A Filthy Business

Not the noble art, as once practised, but modern politics. You almost have to be filthy to join in the game. Filthy rich helps, but being amoral, greedy and slimy seem to be major assets on (otherwise empty) C.V's. This week we were treated to the (now usual) spectacle of a serving Minister being caught with her hand in the till. Maria Miller's theft started at around £90,000 but that was halved on appeal, and because she swore to say [...]

On the way back I got to wondering what [...]

Chewsday Chuckles…

Not much to laugh at these days, but I'll give it a go. Feast yer peepers on these (stolen) images: New law in South Africa demanding a change to bathroom locks: Why Kermit should never have interfered in Scottish politics: Regarding Cameron's latest promise to 'sort out the EU' I say this: Have a super week.
