A quote from “what the blind man saw” but it fits nicely with the latest bit of money wasting, inane “research”-BBC NEWS.

Apparently people who drink too much coffee could start seeing ghosts or hearing strange voices, UK research has suggested.

If you drink more than seven cups of instant coffee a day you are three times as likely to hallucinate than those who drink only one cup.

The source of this amazing conclusion: 200 students at Durham university

Other amazing statements from this “study”; "“experiencing hallucinations is not a definite sign of mental illness and that about 3% of people regularly hear voices.”

What a load of old bollocks! This is the type of useless, pointless crap that makes me wonder why this type of thing is given column space.

Students are not exactly the most reliable source for research, and have a habit of “windups”; drinking twenty pints of lager can make you “see” things, as can certain herbal tobaccos.

Still I presume these highly paid “researchers” thought it was a good idea at the time, probably came up with it over a cup of coffee, or seven.

Other stuff.

Labour really isn’t doing too well is it? BBC NEWS- The Labour Party paid a sex offender convicted in the United States more than £2,500 to help it with its 2005 election campaign, the BBC has learned.

Activist Tim Russo, 41, was a visits co-ordinator in the East Midlands but did not have a UK work visa.

The Labour Party said it was unaware of Russo's past. It said it had not hired him but only paid expenses.

What is the old saying? Ignorance of the facts is no defence.

Labour again-Telegraph it seems that after the banks caused the “downturn” along with Gord’s de-regulation of the financial services, they have decided to employ someone as Trade Minister to help rescue the banks. This person is Mervyn Davies, who is a BANKER.

“The Telegraph can disclose that Mr Davies will become a peer and serve as Trade Minister under Lord Mandelson after the personal request from Prime Minister Mr Brown. It will be officially announced on Wednesday morning.”

The mind firkin boggles.

And finally.

As George Wa Bush bows out of the American Presidency, here are his twenty worse moments- Telegraph.

Only twenty?
