Tesco Law: Well- F##k you Boris: Grand price of energy: Lego of Star Wars: and Swiss Numpty.

Sunnyish, unwarmish and windyish at the Castle this morn, the study is overflowing with broken one eyed monsters, his Maj has decided that it is too cold to venture out and the Honda is up to 157 miles on twenty sqids worth of go juice.

I see that my favourite retailer will soon be able to sell consumer legal services in England and Wales for the first time following a change in law.
The government says the new Legal Services Act will offer more choice and better value for the public.
It says it also means law firms will benefit from investment and allow them to explore new markets.

Yeah right.....


Boris has decided that action will be taken so that police can arrest members of the public for swearing at them, Boris Johnson has promised.
The London mayor attacked police guidance advising officers not to try to arrest those who verbally attacked them on the basis that police should have thicker skins.
"I reckon we need to get back to where we were before some judge given law of 1988 and be clear that if people swear at the police, they must understand they will be arrested," Mr Johnson said.

I reckon that Boris should leave the alternative universe he seems to live in and join the real world.


The cheapest annual gas and electricity deal for UK households has hit £1,000 for the first time after above inflation price rises by energy companies.
The record energy bills come as three in 10 Britons admit that they are struggling to afford their energy bills.
Eight in 10 householders say they will be forced to start rationing their energy use by going without adequate heating, according to a survey of 2,300 people.
“Britain is on the brink of an affordability crisis when it comes to household energy,” said, the price comparison site which carried out the survey.
The milestone of the £1,000 bill was reached earlier this week when Scottish Power pulled a £990 ‘dual fuel’ tariff from the market.
Mark Todd, a director at, which released the findings about the £1,000 bills, said: “The cheapest energy tariffs keep getting axed and now there are no tariffs costing under £1,000 a year for an average home.”
 “This is the first time that has been the case and emphasises in stark terms how bills are reaching historic levels,” he said.

No shit........

A Star Wars fan spent six months and 30,000 Lego bricks recreating a scene from one of the movies.
Jay Hoff spent £1,500 on piecing together the moment the Emperor arrives to inspect a new Death Star in Return Of The Jedi.
Mr Hogg, a teacher, created the 6ft by 6ft model for his school's annual Science Discovery Day in Miami, Florida.
Pupils are expected to bring in a small Lego creation to display so he decided to join in to show his young charges how it's done.
He said: "The kids went absolutely crazy about it, which made it all worthwhile.
"I only got to display the model for one day and I still haven't had the heart to take it apart yet!"

Star Wars-science? And this guy is a teacher......

And finally: 

A drink driver tried to park his car in a river after mistaking a slipway for an underground car park ramp in heavy fog.
Peter Thaler, 42, abandoned the car and walked home when he realised he'd almost ended up in the Ruess river in Sins, Switzerland.
But he was arrested the next morning when he returned to collect it while police were retrieving it and was still so drunk he failed an alcohol breath test.
"He was confused because of the fog but mostly because of the drink," said a police spokesman.
"He lost his licence and will be fined and will have to pay all the costs of the recovery of his car."

Didn’t have GPS then......

And today’s thought: I can please only one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow isn't looking good, either.
