Time to cut the cuts: Education goes back in time: Speed cam, cams: Road of many colours: Criminal uniforms: Not a load of bull.

A bit of solar stuff, even less white fluffy stuff, not a lot of lack of cold and not even a drop of wet stuff at the Castle this morn.
Another year has passed at the speed of time for this daft old fart; and at the unexpected age of sixty one I only have another five months and nineteen days and I can apply for my bus pass.
As I wandered abaht the bedroom without my shirt on I could have sworn I saw the glint of a telephoto lens in the distance-I must call my lawyers...
And as this Piss Poor blog is still infesting the Blogosphere it seems that pics of the Royal rectum are acceptable while snaps of the minor Royal Norks are a no-no.

Double standards methinks...


Allegedly what’s his name has been warned by Liberal Democrat activists that he must not allow George Osborne to impose more welfare cuts in return for securing the party's long-cherished goal of a wealth tax.
The Social Liberal Forum (SLF), which is on the party's left, fears that Mr Clegg, is preparing the ground for a Coalition deal under which the Lib Dems back the Chancellor's plan for £10bn of welfare cuts in return for moves towards a wealth tax such as a levy on homes worth more than £2m.
The SLF will seek to tie U-Turn Cams fag’s hands at the Lib Dems' autumn conference in Brighton, which starts a week today.

He should be used to a bit of bondage-after all he did go to public school....


Changes to the exam system for 16-year-olds in England will "give parents confidence" in the examinations their children take in the future according to Thingy.
Do-da and Education Secretary Michael Gove are due to unveil the new exam regime.
GCSEs will be ditched in 2015, and replaced with what minister’s claim will be a more rigorous system.Assessment will be based on an O-level style single end-of-year exam.

That’s education set back another 25 years then...


Prince George's County cops announced they are installing new cameras designed to keep a watchful eye on the Maryland counties speed cameras, WTOP reports.
Since April, six speed cameras have been attacked by angry citizens, according to WTOP. One camera was shot at and another burned.
Prince George's County Police Maj. Robert Liberati said he doesn't think people's rage is a result of the cameras, per se.
"The roads are choked; there are lots of drivers on them. I think traffic itself is the cause of frustration [toward speed cameras]," Liberati said. "But, we have a duty to make the roads safe, even if takes a couple extra minutes to get to your destination."

Anyone see the flaw in logic?


And in the town of Manaus the road became a rainbow when a truck carrying 28,000 pounds of paint tipped over.

 Bet Zippy is excited...

Two southeast companies that make U.S. military uniforms are shedding hundreds of jobs, as the government looks to federal inmates for the fatigues.
American Power Source makes military clothing in Fayette, Ala., but its government contract expires in October. Federal Prison Industries – which also operates under the name UNICOR will snag the work, and leave the task to inmates. FPI has the first right of refusal for U.S. Government contracts, under a 1930 federal law.
American Apparel, the Selma, Ala., based military clothing manufacturer closed one of its plants and continues to downsize others due to the loss of some of its contracts to FPI.
According retired Air Force colonel and spokesman Kurt Wilson, the company laid off 255 employees and cut the hours of 190 employees this year alone so private workers end up losing their jobs to prisoners.

Has Ken Clarke been in the States recently?

And finally: 

A County Antrim farmer is celebrating after his pet bull made it into the record books for being the shortest in the world.
Ryan Lavery says that Archie, who is 76cms (30ins) tall, was originally destined to be made into burgers but, after he failed to grow sufficiently by Christmas time, the family decided to keep him as a pet.
Despite being officially named as the shortest bull in the world, and being dwarfed by most of the other animals on the farm, Mr Lavery still says that Archie feels he’s the big man, or short bull, on campus.
Ryan said that he was delighted that Archie, a Dexter bull, had made it into the Guinness Book of Records.
'I knew Archie was small but I never realised he was that small,' he said.



And today’s thought:
All fur coat and no knickers-royal?


Grassy arse to Bernard for the pic

The Sunday Section

Still feel like a second hand doughnut this morn, still it could be raining, Oh crap it is, back to bed I think.

First up:

Cannon Fodder

A US Policeman has been charged with felony menacing for allegedly brandishing his gun at a McDonald's restaurant after getting tired of waiting for his food.

Derrick Curtis, 29, also faces charges of prohibited use of a weapon, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.

An employee at the Aurora restaurant told investigators that two Denver police officers were waiting for their food at the drive-through window May 21 when one grew impatient and pulled his gun.

No one was injured.

Denver police spokesman Sonny Jackson told The Denver Post that Saunders had been suspended with pay andwould be put on unpaid leave once the department is formally notified of the charges.

I think if I found myself in a “Big Mac” queue and was lucky enough to have a gun, I would shoot myself.

Orgy outrage

Ayia Napa in Cyprus is up in arms, it seems that tourists are indulging in “wild sex orgies” while out cruising on local ferries, Photographs documenting the sexual escapades of groups of young tourists to the island's popular resort of Ayia Napa were printed in the Norwegian press, following similar claims involving British and Scandinavian holidaymakers in 2006.

Once a sleepy fishing village, Ayia Napa is popular with families for its pristine beaches but since 2000 has gained a reputation as a clubber's paradise, attracting hoards of young partygoers.

Giorgos Economou, a local police spokesman, told Reuters that similar stories about such cruises surfaced every year in the foreign press.

"The boats are checked every day by the port police and no evidence has been found as yet to suggest such activities are going on."

"But we wouldn't be able stop them when they're in the middle of the open seas doing their business," Economou said.

Story of my life, wrong place………..

What a load of Bulls

The Bontekoe brothers of Deerfield Township Mich, have managed to breed two dairy steers with a combined weight of more than 3,300 pounds, the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus of Howell reported in an article published Friday.

Nester, a dairy steer raised by Jack, 16, tipped the scales at 2,157 pounds. That's far above the typical weight of 1,600 pounds.

"I'm eye-level with his back," Jack said. "He was a large calf when me and my dad pulled him."
A midget Holstein named Midge was 10-year-old Cal's creature, weighing in at 1,177 pounds.

The brothers, whose family owns a dairy farm with 300 cattle, entered the steers in the Fowlerville Family Fair through a 4-H club, hoping to take home grand champion and reserve awards for livestock.

They didn't win - Jack said the judge called his steer "too big" and Midge was deemed "too beefy-looking."

"I just like having him," Cal said of Midge. "It's really a good feeling."

And it wasn't a total loss. Nester could be sold for slaughter at $1 a pound, netting Jack more than $2,000.

"It's tough to see them leave, but you get used to it," he said.

Not that attached to them then.

It’s raining it’s, well drizzling

We are all used to Drizzle, we just put a coat on and take the umbrella, but not in Chile; The port of Iquique was deluged by 2mm of “rain” last Monday, and buffeted by 10 mph winds.

The result was that power failed In several neighbourhoods and 4000 houses had their roofs damaged, Schools were closed Tuesday so that officials can repair the damage.

The city of 170,000 people in northern Chile is in the heart of the barren Atacama Desert, squeezed between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean. It averages about 0.02 inch (0.6 millimetres) of rain a year, according to University of Chile meteorologists.

Houses in the region are not built to resist rain and their roofs often have no slope for runoff.
Lucky for some.

That’s yer lot for today, I’m off to bed.
