Let Europe sink

Europeans vote in Marxists and wonder why things turn to shit, then they vote in Fascists and wonder why things turn to shit, and then turn around and vote in more Marxist authoritarians.  If this is the future the Europeans want, I say let them have it, and we don't save them from themselves anymore, they'll either figure out that statism doesn't work or die trying.

This Is Why We Have A "FAIL Britannia!" Tag

Thank you, Royal Mail, for this bit of levity.

Royal Mail chiefs wrote to Ken Ridge claiming that six-month-old Illy had attacked a postal worker.

Mail deliveries to the house could now be suspended as a result of the attack on the woman, he was told.

Mr Ridge, 65, who lives in Clapham, South London, with his 30-year-old son Bradley, said: 'We were not around when this happened, but it seems some mail was put through the letterbox and their hand was scratched.

'Illy is only a kitten and I am sure she was just playing.   

'Then we got a letter from the mail delivery office warning our deliveries could be stopped.'   

Signed by office manager Mayo Sonubi the letter said: 'I am writing to let you know that, on June 6, our postman was attacked by your animal in your premises while delivering mail to your address.

'Animal attacks are a major cause of injury to Royal Mail staff and so I am writing to seek your co-operation in preventing a repeat of this unfortunate incident.

'I must advise you that, if any further incidents of this nature are allowed to take place, I shall have no alternative other than to consider suspending the delivery of mail to your home.'

Well, now I can say the Brits have done something right in recent memory

But the UK's fixation on failing at everything else, compounded by my extreme laziness prevents me from making a WIN tag for them.  But if we had one, this would go in it.  As sophistimicated as the Brits are, they seem to love trashy American television, but they do redeem themselves with one show, as Rachel Lucas reports.  Airwolf has apparently made its way across the pondFortunately for us, we have access to Airwolfy awesomeness anytime, anywhere.  *USA! USA! USA!*

Of course, who can forget Alex Cord's open letter to the Moron-in-Chief?

An Idea So Stupid, Only The Nanny State Could Push It

Anti-stab knives?

The first “anti-stab” knife is to go on sale in Britain, designed to work as normal in the kitchen but to be ineffective as a weapon.

The knife has a rounded edge instead of a point and will snag on clothing and skin to make it more difficult to stab someone.

It was invented by industrial designer John Cornock, who was inspired by a documentary in which doctors advocated banning traditional knives.

Mr Cornock, 42, from Swindon, said that the knife will cut vegetables, but will make it almost impossible to stab someone to death and will reduce the risk of accidental injuries.

Golfers arrested in UK for beating down attackers

A group of yoots armed with boards approached a group of golfers and demanded they hand their clubs over.  Golfers told the yoots to fuck themselves, melee ensued, the yoots got their shit handed to them, and the golfers get arrested.  We'll see if the other yoots are arrested after they leave the hospital, one already has.

Twittish pubs

It seems our cousins across the pond are doing their best to regulate traditional pub life out of existence:

Traditionally pubs have been highly individualized places, distinguished by their eccentric furnishings, varied clientele, and the differing characters of their landlords. Some pubs went in for beer tankards, others for old photos. And while strict landlords kicked everyone out at 11:10 p.m., others let you stick around for an hour or offered "lock-ins." Now pubs are distinguished by their local council's brand of regulation. Preston Council banned "vertical drinking" (drinking standing up). Many other pubs have prohibited drinking outside, or will only allow drinking behind a line on the pavement. In a Home Office test-scheme in Yeovil, customers are fingerprinted and photographed at the pub door, and local pubs will "share information" on drinkers.
Well, that's a little disturbing, now innit?

Believe it or not, the thing about "vertical drinking" isn't the most ridiculous part of the article. Read the whole thing and wonder how these candy-asses are the descendants of the people who survived the Blitz and once ruled over one of the largest empires the world had ever seen. Seriously, I think they need Zombie Churchill to come back and sort them out.
