Humourous and Satirical Posts:

Labour's bacon Sandwich Fail Show They Are Unfit To Govern Some people might think Boggart Blog has the same style of rabid hatred for all Labour politicians and Labour supporters and lefties reserve for Michael Gove. [ ... ] Take for your example the infamous bacon sandwich incident on the day before the European elections. Warned that Labour were losing votes to UKIP because working class people felt the party was elitist and out of touch, some out of touch elitist in the Labour Public Relations team decided Ed, who is not religious but is Jewish all the same, should be pictured eating a working class breakfast, a bacon sandwich.

Mind Control: How It Works and how The Elite Use It
Mind control, the ability of science to deliver a completely compliant and uncomplaining population. It had been the goal of tyrants for over a hundred years, just as the abilty to comtrol human minds and turn us into humandroids has been the goal of mad scientists. But is such scientific advance getting uncomfortably close to reality? The idea of a scientific dictatorship able to subjugate individuality was born over a century ago by insane scientists and control freaks who saw human qualities like empathy and compassion as an obstriction to scientific progress. welcome to Dystoipia.

More Good News For UKIP As IDS Has Gone Down The Plug Hole
"Gloat all you like Farage, my dick is this big, nygh!" - IDS
It has been a good few days for Nigel Farage and his team. While some Labour and Conservative commentators are trying the anti EU Party did not do well in local elections, UKIP Candidates did better than expected in elections for local councils where in the majority of cases they were trying to ...

Civilisation Isn't Over 'Til The Bearded Lady Sings

Freak shows went out of fashion in the 1950s and rightly so in my not so humble opinion. Two headed dogs, a man with goat hooves, people who swallowed live animals (geeks) and bearded ladies were not anybody's idea of sophisticated entertainment. That being the case, why do Europe's media luvvies who think they are oh so sophisticated persist with the annual freak show that is the Eurovision song Contest?

Labour, the (very rich, elitist) People's party plans to ban your beer and pies
Are Labour still the peoples party or have they forgotten their core voters and working class roots and sold out to the metrpolitan left-wing intellectual media mafia. After the latest P R faux pas, few voters over 40 will be able to asociate the people's party with cloth caps and ciggies. Ed Miliband's proposed crackdown on tobbacco, alcohol and 'unhealthy eating' could well be the policy that loses the election.

Don't Worry If You Are A Barm Pot, Insane Is The New Normal
Have you noticed more and more people seem to be mentally ill these days. It isn't that we are getting crazier (the world is going insane, we are no more mad than our ancestors were), but that the bar people must jump to be diganosed bonkers is being set lower...

Technowanks for technowankers with Google Glass?
Almost every day we are reporting the latest 'breaktrhough in dehumanisation and a further step towards making us all slaves to technology. The scientists are out of control, semi - autistic nerds with no understanding of ethical boundaries are giving politicians with no scruples about reviving Naziism the tools to enslave us.

Mr. Hollande's Soap Opera
The bedroom antics of France's latest President would have brought down the government in most nations, particularly those tending to the protestant version of Christianity. So why has the exposure of a love affair betwen France's Francoise Hollande and a beautiful actress much younger than himself caused so little difficulty for the distinctly uncharismatic M. Hollande?

Oxbridge bias equals unfunny comedy says Bob Mortimer
If you don't know who Bob Mortimer is, you are either very young or an alien. He was half of the Reeeves and Mortimer team that made some hilariously surreal sketch shows throughout the 1990s and more recently co presenter (with Vic Reeves) of the bordertline insance panel game Shooting Stars.

Meat Will Only Be For The Elite If Leftie Scientists Get Their Way
A group of leading environmental scientists have tabled a report blaming cow farts for global warming and demanding punitive taxes on meat. Is there anything solid in their theory or are they all piss and wind?

How American Forces Network Saved Our Lives Britain in the 1950s was a monochrome society, a rigid, unyielding social order and overt class consciousness constrained social interactions, people were reluctant to do the right thing for fear of it being deemed by "polite society" as the wrong thing. Fortunately a radio station we should not have been listening to, and the subversive music it played took the lead in releasing us from our bonds

Britspeak
Some American academics are concerned about the number of British slang words and colloquialisms that are finding their way into the pure and beautiful American language (which they call English) after being picked up from TV shows and films. One particular individual who shall be nameless because he is probably the type of small minded, humourless Herbert who would sue, is getting his knickers in a right old twist and throwing hissy fits about it every chance he gets.

Where Is Bicycle Repair Man When The World Needs Him
A superhero whose superpower is repairing bikes? It was a sketch in a Monty Python's Flying Circus show. But forty years on is it as crazy as it sounded then? We seem to have plenty of people with degrees in things that are not every practical and shortages of people who can do useful stuff. And when we have health and safety officers stopping people from climbing ladders unless they have been properly trained, people are discouraged from learning those everyday skills by themselves.

Comical Ali Is Back And Now Working For The New World Order
A CNN documentary on nuclear power as a source of clean, green energy now that wind and solar have failed very expensively to live up to scientists expectations (as us sceptics said they would) was so biased it reminded us of the broadcasts from Iraq's Information Minister in the Gulf War

History Is Older Than They Are Telling Us The official story goes Weez aalz from Afreekaa, humans crossed the strait of Gibraltar about a million years ago and after some serious delays at Malaga airport, arrived in britain arounf 400,000 years ago.

Scientists Prove Science Is For The Terminally Insane
News coming out of the world of 'science' is getting crazier. But is that any wonder when the government and the BBC keep throwing money at idiots like Brian Cox who does a little come in his pants every time he uses the word science (which explains why he uses it six times a minute)

BBC-outed-on-left-wing-political-bias-in-climate-change-coverage-by-astute-pensioner-they-are-a-globalist-propaganda-tool-nature-daily-stirrer-dailystirrer
For years the BBC have denied showing left wing bias in their reporting of climate change and the fraudulent science that has steered government policy on the environment. Now the supposedly neutral but increasingly politicised public broadcaster has been outed by an astute pensioner as a New World Order prpoaganda machine.

History Is Older Than They Are Telling Us The official story goes Weez aalz from Afreekaa, humans crossed the strait of Gibraltar about a million years ago and after some serious delays at Malaga airport, arrived in britain arounf 400,000 years ago.

Norwegians Rebel Against Fat Police

It is great for one to be able to report on a nation not far from us culturally of geographically that is staging a fightback against the control freaks.

Evidence (As If You Needed Any) That All The Green Movement Are Insane
The Green movement are trying to make a big thing of earth hour, suppoedly the one hour each year we all switch off our lights and appliances to remind ourselves of how our lifestyles harm the planet. The trouble is despiter much hype and dishonest reporting from mainstream media Earth Hour has never really caught on. In fact most peope are completely in the dark about it.

Midsome Gang Wars The Politically Correct Thought Police have the fictional coppers of Midsomer Murders in their sights. They say there are no ethnic minority members in the cast. So while most of us ordinary punters are fine with prople from Africa, the Caribbean Asia and the Indian Sub Continent we have yet another reason to hate politically correct lefties.

Empathic Chickens Or Silly Science
In a news item that deserved to be listed in the 'gobsmacking scientific breakthrough of the week' dedicated to the work of scientists who get very excited when they discover something the rest of us hown known for years, we report on the discovery of empathic chickens. The Wonders Of Brian Cox
I haven't much time for scientists normally, especially those con artists who cooked up the global warming scam and the lapdogs of Big Pharma who tell us if we would only take enough prescription drugs we could live forever. Brian Cox on the other hand is as always good television in his new Wonders of the Universe series..

The Truth Is Not Out There
The truth is out there, promised the voiceover man at the start of television cult sci - fi series The X Files. Well it might be but if it is we are no nearer to finding it. And since the X Files introduced us to cryptozoology and quantum weirdness we don't seem to be any closer to the truth. Maybe out there is the wrong place to look.

Football Is Becoming A Game For Wimps or Who Banned All The Pies
News that a football stadium has gone vegetarian is never going to do the game's already tarnshed image much good. We get the feeling there soon will be a day when grizzled old pundits will be more likely to remark, cor, nice arse about the Ref rather than his comely female assistant. Football ued to be a man's game,there was a kind of poetry involved in the play of Tom Finney, Johhny Haynes, George Best and the other greats but it was the poetry of ...

Malawi: Where Farting Is A Crime.We in the west have endured the gradual erosion of our civil liberty, human rights and personal freedom in the name of politically correct thinking but while we look to the developing world as offering a simpler, more common sense approach to life it seems their situation is worse. A new law in Malawi has made farting a crime. At least in the west we can still fart at will.
Face It: Eating Shite Makes You Fat And Ill
Governments are worried that we as a nation are getting too fat. Bigger ambulances and bigger prison cells are needed. They blame the public for lack of self control. But we are being brainwashed by advertisinf and the food industry into eating toxic chemicals that make us gain weight. Hilreious comedy rant.
Everything They Said Is Bad For You Is Good For You.J
ust when you thought it was safe to go back into the pleasuredome Nanny State's Politically Correct Thought Police are now using CAll Me Dave's Dave's nudger try to nudge us towards being better citizens, eating more shite and refusing things we like, drinking less booze, smoking less ciggies, avoiding dangerous sports like bowls and tiddleywinks, driving less miles in a less cavalier fashion and being less idle (unless of course being idle is the alternative to driving, boozing, eating or enjoying yourself by doing things the Thought Police do not like.
Tobogganing Teacher Sacked

And Starlings Will Fall - Bladdered -From The Heavens
Odd, and we mean really strange, stuff happens all the time. The world is a strange place. Sometimes when strange stuff happens God fearing types start yelling about the end of the world and the raptures when all our clothes fall off and we ascend to heaven Nothing happens of course. Scientists say science wil provide the answer and it doesn't because the world is not scientific. And all the time only Boggart Blog knows what happened.

Christmas Is Bollocks part 2.
For Christmas 2010 Boggart Blog has continued its long tradition off slagging off the modern, consumer oriented, shoddy, politically correct, conformist christmas if favour of supporting people who do their own thing.

You Get What You Deserve.
Are mobile phones, celphones as they are called in some parts, destroying good manners and the basic civility we need in order for ociety to finction? In the internet destroying our way of life? Are we becoming slaves to technology? Boggart Blog's resident technophobe Fatsally has a few things to say on that.

Apprentice Speak: Talking Corporate Bollocks.
As the government tried to sell off last year's stock of swine flu by telling us the pandemic that did not happen last year had come back to not happen again this year. There is a pandemic running round at the moment though as evidenced by this year's UK run of The Appentice on television. If Lord Sugar's candidates were as good at getting things done as they are at talking management spek bollocks he's be on a winner.

It's Life Craig, But Not As We Know It.
Since the publication of Frankenstein and maybe before that it has been the ambition of many scientists to discover the science of life itself and thus create new life in the laboratory. Now modern adances in delusional thinking have led science to move beyond dreams into the realms of fantasy fiction and claim they have created artificial life when they have not.

Batteries Not Included
"Batteries not inclded" The dreaded words on the boxes of toys bought for Christmas presents. At first sight of those words Dad knew that stuffed with turkey, roasties and duff he was in for a trek round the destered streets on Chistmas day to find an open all hours. Now as governments and sciencyheads and green, three hugging weirdie - beardies whose love of science and the environment is more to do with religious zeal than reason and logic we are starting to the that the words "batteries not included will be even mkore terrifying when see in the small priint of the contract we have just signed for a new electric car.

Magic Hat Works For Me.
It does not take much to get the grumblies grumbling and mumbling. I'm talking about the sciencyheads and people whose irrational belief in logic, reason and order makes us pity them. Ten to one they will be getting their knickers in a twist about any mention of my magic hat. Well when I'd worn my hat to go out shopping for wine and it's magic helped me to pull a pretty girl of less than half my age, that's the kind of magic I can believe in. And the sciencyheads and pointyheads can fuck right off.

Normal, Fat, Obese?
Can it be true as one newspaper headline suggested this week parents do not know whether their child has a weight problem because they do not know what the difference between normal, fat and obese. But with the politically correct though police forbidding us to call somebody a fat bastard and medical professionals using terms like clinically obese (slightly over the ideal weight) and morbidly obese (a right tunb of lard) is it any wonder people are confused.

Ban Terry Jones
As usual the Labour Loony Left are getting their knickers in a right old twist about somebody most of us might not care to have as a dinner guest being allowed into the country. When you hear the name Terry Jones you might think of phrases like 'He's not The Messiah, he's a very naughty boy,' or 'Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition,' but alas it is not the Terry Jones of Monty Python fame.
It's Life Jim But Not As We Know It. Scientists, those shallow, excitable people so to prone to hyperbole and easily moved to hysteria were last week claiming they had discovered alien life forms in the shape of arsenic eating bacteria in Lake Mono, California. Science and reality are often a long way apart and in the cold light of reason we wonder what the NASA astrobiologist who led the project was getting wound up about.

Milliband: Labour Will Demand Equal Rights For Toothpaste.
New Labour leader Ed Milliband pledged at his press event relaunching the party under his leadership that Labour will lok after the "squeezed middle." The press, broadcast media and the world of politics have been speculating about what this means. Only Boggart Blog can bring you the exclusive, Ed was talking about family values, sibling rivalry and toothpaste.

SAS - Satnav Antipathic Soldiers and The Misadventures Of Suzie From The Isle Of Skye
Boggart Blog loves Sat Nav stories. We love all stories that make those people trying to turn science into a religion and make technology one of its idols look stupid. Not that we are against science and technology, we are simply against the kind of people who try to tell us what we can and can't think. And if we give up map reading slikks and the power to think for ourelves then when the machines go wrong as sat nav often does, we're fucked. As a young friend of ours found out.
Carl Sagan Day.
If there is one man the sciencyheads hail as the prophet of their religion, the worship of speculative theories and unproveable assertions, the conflation of fact with fantasy, legend and myth and the replacement of hard evidence with mathematical modelling it is Carl Sagan. So was the man a genius or a knobhead. Read this article and decide for yourselves...

Under The Influence Of Mind Altering Drugs Eight Legs Is A Few too Many
You may have heard of the Men Who Stare At Goats if only throuh the George Cloony film of the same name but have you heard of the Men Who Do Drugs With Spiders? Not 'do drugs and see spiders' you understand but actually get together with spiders for the purpose of taking consciousness altering drugs. It's another war winning idea from the US Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects team. Go America, those bearded ragheads must be shitting themselves.

It seems a mythical woman has been prevented by fire brigade and police officers from committing suicide by impaling herself on John Redwood's pointed ears.The woman, whose real name is not know but who has previously been referred to by the media as Nanny State became distraught as David Cameron announced a new government policy aimed at dismantling the ..
Footballers More Highly Valued Than Scientits - Scientists Complain
We are used to scientists whingeing, oh they're so hard done by, they work long and hard at the task of extending human knowledge and are paid peanuts ('if you pay peanuts you end up hiring monkeys' goes an old business maxim. Now they are complaining immigration law values football more highly than science as footballers' work visas are priorities. Why not we ask, footballers entertain some people, scientists seem to spend all their time molesting mice. When you see (below) some of the work they turn in you might think as we do that if scientists are earning peanuts we're overpaying them...

Comedy Cops Oust Plod.
Police chiefs have finally come clean and admitted their officers spend more time dealing with bureaucracy than chasing criminals. This exposes the ever improving crime statistics proclaimed by the previous government as a fraud. It was not jut that police were not investigating crimes, they wrre not even logging the calls. Boggart Blog reports on the bureaucracy of policing.
Ello, 'Ello, 'Ello, Who's Engine's Running Here Then?
The crazier a law is the more enthusiastic the police will be in enforcing it. Report a murder, robbery or gand fight and the boys in blue will turn up two days later to give out leaflets on victim counselling but go 1mph over the speed limit and they're like mustard.
Speed Dating For Lawyers
When somebody decided to launch a spped dating for single young lawyers who are to busy to develop relationships tt must have seemed a good idea at the time, not so says Boggart Blog's Ian R Thorpe, lawyers are as entitled to the cuddles, companionship and sex we all seek from relationships, but speed dating. Lawyer and speed are words that will never sit comfortably together
Apocalypse North
England is two nations, north and south it is often said. Most people think this refers to the wealth gap, they have more money in the south, in the north we have better beer, better pies and we get more sex. But the real gap is cultural. This does not mean southerners are always at the opera or ballet while we are at football or bingo. It means southerners are obsessed with social status, we in the north couldn't give a fuck what you think of us so long as we're having a laugh.

Recycling Into Danger
Power may well corrupt but it certainly removes those who hold it from reality. So as Gordon Brown squats in Downing Street hoping that a bizarre sequence of events following the indecisive election will lead to him staying on as Prime Minister in a hung parliament one cannot help but think The Gordon Show is turning into a Truman Show type movie fantasy.

Safety First, Second and Third, Fun Last.
The politically correct thought police and their health and safety cohort are tireless in their efforts to ensure you are never ever at risk from anything, especially the risk of having fun.

Are You Smarter Than Your Kids.
Every year we are told school pupils are getting brighter as record numbers of exam passses are achieved. Every year employers complain that their new recruits, from university graduates to year ten drop outs are getting dumber. So is the education system really turning our brighter children or are the examining boards cheating?

Ryanair To Let Passengers Fly Planes?
News that in a cost cutting move budget airline Ryanair were considering abolishing the role of co - pilot and training cabin vrew to fly planes was greeted with disbelief. We wondered why, the travel industry has been hit hard by the recession and ruthless efficiency is necessary for survival. A Boggart Blog investigation revealed however that there may plans to go even further and let passengers fly planes.

David Cameron Shoots Himself In The Face
David Cameron had got off to such a good start in his relations with America, putting Obama in his place about economics and deficit spending, revealing plans for withdrawal from Afghanistan, pointing out the BP has not been British Petroleum for many years and getting some concessions for convicted pentagon hacker Gary McKinnon. So why has it gone wrong?

Is It A Bird, Is It A Plane, Is It Superman, No, its Supermuslim!
In an effort to show Muslims are really fun people and Islamic publisher has launched a muslim superhero comic book series. Move over Superman and all the other all American superheroes, Super Muslim has arrived.

Parent Power: Mr & Mrs Lardarse Join The Parent Council
One of the recent big new ideas in education is parent power and the introduction of parent councils in schools to encourage parents to have a more active role in school life. The problem here is will the more articulate type of middle class parent dominate or will the more physical approach of Mr. and Mrs Lardarse win the argument?
Back To Basics by Sir Hector Gobbett - Broadsides
Sir Hector Gobbett Broadsides, Conservative MP for Rawtenborough since 1832 and a great champion of old fashioned values has agreed to write for us in support of a return to traditional convervative values, self determinations and the restoration of traditional British right like Primae Noctis. In this first article he argues for the reten of ritualistic beatings in schools, the death penalty for single mothers and the 95 hour working week for poor people.

Pity The Poor Binmen
Whether the government in power is Labour, Conservative or coalition their idea of improving public sector efficiency sems to be to stop provinding services to the public but hire bigger and bigger armies of penpushers to administer the non provision of services. Just look what has happened with refuse collection over the years. We have ended up with a situation in which binmen are not allowed to lift or carry a bin for health and safety reasons...

The Ball Was In
by cleohart

Football. The World Cup. There's no escape, so I might as well cover it. On Sunday we lost spectacularly against our nemesis, Germany. To be fair, we were shit, and have been throughout the contest according to all commentaries. Really we should think ourselves lucky we didn't achieve ultimate embarrassment by ...

Welcome To Our World Cup
America's football (soccer if you must)team is taking part in the World Cup again. Lets hope their gallant performances as underdogs, and their good natured sportsmanship are not treated with the same indifference as four years ago. After all, though a sports team alone cannot undo the damage done to America's international reputation by the Bush administration, its a start.

England's Flag Racist?
Crimes like murder, robbery, kidnapping, rape and arson are not serious enough to warrant urgent police attention these days. The crimes that matter are... a flag that identified him as an England football supporter? Well no, he was actually pulled up because his World Cup flag was “racist and likely to offend Muslims.

World Cup: The Idea Is To Win But England Players Don't Get It.
Far be it from us to suggest footballers are thick, I mean thinking the idea of a penalty shootout is to put the ball as far wide or high of the goal as possible is a simple mistake to make. Emile Heskey reached a new level of incomptence however, and what more he did it in a warm up game against....

Rooney Not Of The Old School
It was always inevitable that England striker Wayne Rooney would get into trouble at the world cup. The scouser's ripe language was bound to upset referees who have been bribed (allegedly) to find any excuse for sensing off England players. But getting in trouble is a friendly with a local team exceeded our expectations...

Rooney To Ref: Swive You Earsling - Now Wayne Can Vent His Spleen Safely
Boggart Blog. though not a football blog is for the World Cup as patriotic as any British blog can be so we came up with a scheme to protect England star Wayne Rooney from overzealous foreign referees. We are sending out our expert on medieval English, Grammercy Pecksniff to coach Rooney in using archaic swear words and insulting phrases words even English referees will not understand..


The Misery Pill: Unhappiness and Arse DribbleWe have reported extensively both here and at the original Boggart Blog on the plague of obesity and the scourge of arse dribble that punishes those who seek a quick remedy in fat busting drug. Now the pharmeceutical indusrty has gone one better and created a pill that not only causes arse dribble, it makes people depressed as well.

Should The Cuts Hit The NHS?

FILTH! The Mary Whitehouse Effect
Advance publicity for “FILTH!” a dramatised version of the Mary Whitehouse story starring Julie Walters and coming (oops, pardon!) to a television near you has predictably aroused (oops, pardon!) the holier-than-thou brigade to start ranting about ... any mention of “FILTH!” in the media tends to make the legions of the narrow minded come over Mary Whitehouse (oops, pardon!).

Is It Time To Ban Maths From Schools?
Academics and politicians are always banging on about how school pulpils have no interest in maths and science. They blame everybody but themselves of course. When you get down to it, maybe the way Maths and Science are taught in schools is to blame. Or maybe it is the nerds who teach it and try to infect pupils with their own irrational enthusiasm for the uttrly pointless that has made these subjects so uncool.

Welcome To Our World Cup
America's football (soccer if you must)team is taking part in the World Cup again. Lets hope their gallant performances as underdogs, and their good natured sportsmanship are not treated with the same indifference as four years ago. After all, though a sports team alone cannot undo the damage done to America's international reputation by the Bush administration, its a start.

High Flyers Wanted For Astronaut Jobs
In the light of secondary school teacher fatsally's experience of the current cup of school leavers the European Space Agency campaign to recruit astronatuts by advertizing the job as 'no formal qualifications needed' seems ill advised.

Bed and Breakfast Bible Society
When a gay couple turn up at a bed and breakfast hotel looking for a double room nobody bats an eyelid these days. Unless that is, the B & B is run by a Christian fundamentalist couple.

Sexless In The City
The great success of the series Sex In The City has always puzzled Boggart Blog because only one (Kim) of the four sex bombs in leading roles is actually sexy. Some critics have suggested the series ties in with the aspirations of many young cosmopolitan professionals. Are there really so many sex straved screwed up, neurotic fuck brains in the world? Read this hilarious critique...

British Teeth
Our American friends like to make jokes about British teeth. They might be more sympathetic towards our desire to keep our natural teeth if they knew the history of British dentistry since the formation of the National Health Service.

Conspiracy Theory of the Month - Patriotism
Whenever the word conspiracy is mentioned someone is bound to shout "Tin Foil Hat Wearer." The shouter is obviously involved in some kind of conspiracy and trying to divert attention from their activities. Conspiracies are all around us, large and small. Governments may not be beaming radio signals into our brains to control us but if such a technology was available you can bet they would be. This conspiracy theory concerns patriotism, an age old conspiracy among the elite to persuade the sons of the non elite it is a good and noble thing to die for one's country. Especially if the dead guy was the one carrying the flag.

When David Met Angie (satire)
What would happen when Britain's new Prime Minister David Cameron, leaders of the Conservative / Liberal Democrat coalition met Angela Merkel, German Chancellor and leaders of a coalition headed by the conservative Christian Democrats? The mother of all love ins perhaps? Of might one of our two star crossed lovers play it horribly badly?

War On Terror 2008: A Suspect Called Paddington
Paddington Bear makes a return to the printed page in a new book by author Michael Bond.

In the story Paddington copes with life in the 21st century in his inimicable way, leaving a trail of chaos and bemusement behind him. But just think if Paddington was making his debut in the 21st century, rather than the gentler more trusting times of post-war Britain.

Teenage Prostitute Baby Poisoners

Ten - The First Night David and Sam Spend In Their New Home Turns Into A Nightmare
It is said ghosts are just echoes of the past, electro - magnetic shadows of long ago dramas imprinted on the fabric of buildings. But what is it like to enter a house where recent real life tragedies have taken place? And what mysteries of the mind might draw the people involved in those events back to the scene?

Labour Contenders Line Up With David Milliband To The Fore

The Gordon Truman Show
Power may well corrupt but it certainly removes those who hold it from reality. So as Gordon Brown squats in Downing Street hoping that a bizarre sequence of events following the indecisive election will lead to him staying on as Prime Minister in a hung parliament one cannot help but think The Gordon Show is turning into a Truman Show type movie fantasy.

Lord Of The Blair Rings, (Emily, Tony and Precious)
Power corrupts maybe but it certainly removes those who hold it from reality. Tony Blair sits and schemes through his last days in office, hoping to find a way to hold on to his precious, the ring of office held by every Prime Minister or First Lord Of The Treasury to give the office its proper title. One cannot help but think power has warped Blair's mind so much he thinks he is the living embodiment of a character in a fantasy fiction.

It's A Great Career Move, Britney.
What is poor Britney Spears to do. She's all out of comebacks, and everybody has had more than enough of her flirtations with madness and her star is fading fast. She has even worn out her victim status, her Dad having rid her of all the parasites who were sucking Britney and her bank accounts dry. Where Tiger Woods can repair his reputation by doing what he is good at, hitting little balls with sticks Britney's popularity depends on popularity. In the circumstances there is only one way forward for the fading celebrity, the fame junkie who is no longer famous. Fatsally reveals what in this article...

Scientists Blame Ancient Goddess For Volcanic Dust Disruption
Can this be true. While the volcano in iceland is still projectile vomiting ash and dust into the atmosphere scientists who have spent the last few decades dissing Gaia theory as superstitious unscientific nonsense are now saying the dust clouds are natures way of controlling global warning. Oo-er Missis, ancient earth science goddess very angry.

Poly Clinics - Not Just For Avian Flu.

Ladettes To Ladies
One of the most bizarre and most entertaining of reality TV shows is ladettes to ladies.

Live Forever Or Choose Life
Never a week and scarecely a day goes by without the latest shot in the wannabe global government's campaingn of fear and panic being fired at us ordinary folk. It will relate to health, drink, drugs, diet or smoking and offer in exchange for another freedom some dubious advantage. The lastest on the British front in this war on reality is a warning that air pollution in casusing 55,000 early deaths a year. Now if we stop all indusry in its tracks (because industrial processes are the main cause of pollution) thus increasing unemployment to 99% of the employable population (those who work in public services are in real terms unemployable) thus stopping those 55,000 deaths, ban smoking and drinking, stop people eating dodgy stuff that promotes stomach cancer etc. etc. pretty soon, if you add up all the lives these measures will save, nobody will be dying... Which would be a nightmare future in a world full of incontinent old gits.

No Help For Those With Self Inflicted Health Problems

A Crisis In An Englishmen's Undercrackers
One of the causes of the west's economic decline has been the rise in imports from low labour cost nations like China and the depletion of our own industries that can no longer compete. This in turn has led to a crisis of quality in underwear. One good fart can blow the arse out of your guzzies these days. Which is good for China because we have to buy replacements every five minutes but bad for our country because it increases imports and bad for us.

CFlick on a link to find out more however and you invite a worm. trojan or key logger onto your computer where it will steal all your personal data.

People familiar with Obama's track record will be aware that every time he has been elected top an office, state congresss, US senate, President, instead of fulfilling the duties of that role he has immediately started campaigning for his next elevation. So having become, de facto...

>Q.E. with Stephen Fry, the Quantititative Easing television panel game for the recession
Television panel games are alweays popular and recently they have become the primary vehicle for comedy as sketch shows and sitcoms, deprived of their supply lines of theatre, clubs and cabaret dry up. The recession and the financial hsrdship many people have experienced because of it, the greed and irresponsibility of the banks and the cluelessness of politicians though should be a rich pasture for humourists. We suggest adapting an existng show to fit the recession.

A VERY SPECIAL PUBLICATION of interest to fans of Harry Potter and anyone interested in witchcraft, wizardry, adolecent sex fantasies and laughter; available on the web only. Here are all seven parts of Ian Thorpe's series of children's stories (pigs might fly one day you understand) about the journey of a boy wizard, the star pupil of Swimemoles City Academy Gary Trotter as he makes the perilous journey to manhood in his quest for The Portal Of Pleasure. Read them all here.
Part 1 : The Magic Wand Garry encounters the Swinewarts junior dorm resident inebriate ghost, Slightly Legless Len and later makes a wonderful discovery.
Part 2 : The Chamber Of Privacy Garry's lack of experience at controlling the Magic Wand he found after his encounter with Slightly Legless Len leads to a problem for him. Fortunately the Head, Rebus Hubmlebore is sympathetic and soon finds a solution.
Part 3 : The Forest Of Mystery Helped by a zealous but stupid elf Garry finds a way to spy on his classmate Briony when he is in the girls shower. What he sees and what he learns from books stolen when he raided an Adult Buggle bookshop with the help of his cloak on inviibility only leave him more confused.
Part 4 : The Delta Of Venus Garry and had best friend Don hae fallen out over Harry's private bedroom. Anxious to repair the rift Harry shares a magic secret with Don. Don is not as impressed as his friend had hoped however.
Part 5 : Lavender and Dragonmusk Deranged by lust Garry starts to take insane risks to be close to the object of his desire and finds he does not mind being close to classmate Briony either. His cloak of invisibility helps him achieve this aim but is he heading for trouble?
Part 6 : The Portal Of Pleasure Garry's wild adventures under The Cloak Of Invisibility have landed him in a lot of trouble. Briony too risks expulsion from the school. Lust is the strongest of emotions though and they cannot resist sneaking away under the cloak of invisibility to be together. Little do they know their love affair will change their lives.
Part 7 : Gary Trotter and The Oders Of The Penis: (oops, pardon!) to our tale as the lovers Garry and Briony find reality is much more magical than childish fantasies of wizards and spells.
THE END.

NOTE: Some people may find this in bad taste. For years employers and concerned parents have complained that school examinations are getting easier. Politically correct thinking among education academics aims to eliminate failure. But have new plans gone a step too far. The plan which proposes taking into account the emotional state of the pupil rather than marks being pased on the quality of the answers would be open to abuse by wily pupils this article suggests.


Conspiracy Theory of the Month #1 - Dumbing Down


by Ian Thorpe
@ 2005-07-16

Many commentators on the Right of the political spectrum have banged on for years about the steady lowering of standards in education. Left of Centre opinion holds that a different type of education is needed if modern children are to grow up able to cope with the emotional demands of post - industrial society. The truth ought to lie somewhere between these extremes but the Greenteeth investigative team have found what is actually going on to be much more sinister. Evidence suggests that the trend known as Dumbing Down has been engineered by a conspiracy of the Government, the Press and that bloke with the jam - jar bottom goggles on the Halifax ads....

This is a very sad poem about the privatisation by stealth of the UK National Health Service. Sad; because I wrote it almost twenty years ago and it is just as topical now.

The decline of education and its replacement by coaching to examination, the homogenisation of the media, all could be parts of a giant conspiracy to take us back to the days when ordinary people could be sent put in a very deep hole for breaking wind in front of a gentleman. The gentleman had a divine right to fart first.

The Lazy Pupil's Examination Aid.

2005-05-11

NOTE: Some people may find this in bad taste. For years employers and concerned parents have complained that school examinations are getting easier. Politically correct thinking among education academics aims to eliminate failure. But have new plans gone a step too far. The plan which proposes taking into account the emotional state of the pupil rather than marks being pased on the quality of the answers would be open to abuse by wily pupils this article suggests.

EXTRACT: In my school days, admittedly more years ago than I care to remember, trying to justify the non - delivery of homework projects with the excuse "please Sir, the dog ate it," was not exactly fresh and original but was still guaranteed to raise a ripple of laughter from classmates. Now of course it is a tired and lame excuse used as a last resort only by the terminally dull - witted. Family pets have advanced in status so much they can actually make a positive contribution to academic achievement.

Pissed Pensioners Are A Social Blight
There is an ever growing tendency in government to stick their noses into the everyday detail of people's daily lives. Nowhere has this been more apparent than in the case of The Pised Pensioners. Despite the governmen'ts repeated dire warnins about the effects of drinking on health and the cost to health services of drinking related illness a lot of pensioners still like to enjoy the occasional glass of beer or wine. And the pokenose bureaucrats intend to put a stop to it. Read full post

Breakfast With The Apprentices
Ian R Thorpe
23 Apr 2009

The Apprentice rolls on oblivious of the budget, Britain's Got Talent and Barack Obama. Some might suggest that is because it was recorded several months ago but we at Boggart Blog would never stoop so low as to suspect Surrealan of being involved in such a deception. Trust us the programme goes out live in real time and is not edited at all. Next week's task for The Apprentices is to convince sceptics that pigs really can fly.

The usual stereotypes are emerging among the contestants, the obligatory loudmouth, sneak, backstabber, gobshite, airhead, slapper and bitch are all there as well as the girl who is competent but too nice to win and the tosser who is incompetent but enough of a bastard to win.

Atheists Miss The Bus
A plan to put advertisements promoting atheism on London buses misses the point, says satirist Ian Thorpe. Surely if we have to advertise our opposition to the views of religious organisations we are conceding that maybe they have a point.

The Majesty Of McGonagall


William McGonagall is widely acknowledged as the worst poet ever published. Now ith the benefit of post modern irony and the fact he has ben dead a hundred years we have come to love his badly written, unimaginative poems as comic gems, the writer's sheer ineptitude and choice of mundane subject matter making them wildly funny.

Love For Sale (with loyalty points)


The Government is pushing a new law to make it illegal to buy or sell sex (would that they were planning laws to ban buying and selling toxic debt derivatives) but in the past neith law, nor witch hunt nor religious persecustion had succeeded in utting an end to "the oldest profession. So long as there are men willing to buy sex there will be women willing to sell it. But if oppressive laws drive the sex trade off the streets where will it go. Could an idea from Hungary to put legal brothels in Supermarkets have any potential we wonder...?
