No Comment

Is it just me, or is the Blogger comments function misbehaving tonight? Each time I’ve tried to leave a witty and erudite contribution (in my dreams) I’ve been faced with the same word verification: ‘smenita’ and each time it has been knocked back.

So just for fun, a little quiz. I’ll reprise my comments and award points for correct answers, with one point for the subject I was commenting on and two points for the name of the blog, all of which are listed right, but only the Blogger ones obviously:

  1. It’s political correctness gone sane. I think. Oh is it that time again nursie?
  2. And how much more money blown at the European Court of Human Rights?
  3. I could manage five of the first ten, including the hat, lightly fried in butter.
  4. Ah, but love is young and penniless, while true decadence is wealthy and can be bled.
  5. You could argue we’re in a fascist regime. But the tourist money is definitely true, not least the ‘rebels’ posing with their blue hair, face furniture etc.

All entries in the comments section please, judges’ verdict final and all that. Except of course you probably can’t because the comments function is up its own junction.

If there is a demand, I shall publish the answers in a day or two. If there isn’t, I shall sink into a sulky decline and pretend there was anyway.

UPDATE: The answers are now on the comments page.

Nobody’s prefect. If you find any spelling mistakes or other errors in this post, please let me know by highlighting the text and pressing Ctrl+Enter.

    Sorry, SP, this is not an answer to this post but the funeral you asked about on my blog is at 12 noon today. Thank you for your kind thoughts.

    Ooh, good game good game.

    In at five: Something to do with HMTQ.
    In at two: Shabina Begum’s school uniform.

    Don’t know the rest. That was a poor effort wasn’t it?

    I thought that was a great effort Mark!

    The answers were:

    1. The Pink Windmill on the state of the Tories: “Why not support a Party that believes in green politics, social justice and localism?”

    2. Krip on the Begum school uniform case.

    3. Things that Alfred the Okay has never eaten that I have.

    4. Alice on tax increases on cigarettes and alcohol, but down on condoms and the morning after pill.

    5. And finally, an obscure reference to the professional photo-posing punks in London prompted by Councillor Bob on his liking God Save the Queen by the Sex Pistols.

    Ԝoah! I’m really digging thе template/themе of tһis site.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard
    to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must sаy you’ve done a amazing job with this. Alѕo, the blog
    loads extremely fast for mе on Fiгefox. Ѕuperb Blog!
