FAIL

it's worse than that....

Gordy spent NINE years shuttling through old Labour pamphlets, until eventually someone took pity on him and let him out with this supposed PhD.

How you can make an original and new thesis on the basis of old leaflets is anyone's guess.

Obama: McCain can't email, remembers Rubik's Cubes

And in the real world....

"The reason he doesn't send email is that he can't use a keyboard because of the relentless beatings he received from the Viet Cong in service to our country. . . . McCain's severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes."

And how about this:

"In certain ways, McCain was a natural Web candidate. Chairman of the Senate Telecommunications Subcommittee and regarded as the U.S. Senate's savviest technologist, McCain is an inveterate devotee of email. His nightly ritual is to read his email together with his wife, Cindy. The injuries he incurred as a Vietnam POW make it painful for McCain to type. Instead, he dictates responses that his wife types on a laptop. "She's a whiz on the keyboard, and I'm so laborious," McCain admits. "

Trouble with lefties, they are allergic to facts.

Paris, because she has more sense than lefties and liberals.

Joint Committee gets it (mainly) wrong on human rights

As AC said....

"The bill of rights, and constitution, don't exist to enumerate the rights of the people, but rather to impose limits on the power of the government.

"The power of the government flows from the people, rather than the government deigning to 'allow' these rights."

The Magna Carta (whichever edition) was written to curb the King's power, so the Barons had more 'rights'. Note that the peasants, the plebs in current parlance, or citizens in NuLabourSpeak, were kept in their suitable place and little considered.

NuLabour is very happy to promote the misunderstanding that a Bill of Rights is about what a citizen may and may not do, rather than it is to keep government from being oppressive and arbitrary.

Are El Reg readers aware that NuLabour,a fully paid up lackey of the EUSSR, wants to include, as one of the clauses in this so-called Bill of Rights, a clause that the government can override any clause, including those made to protection the 'citizens' rights, whenever it wishes and for any or no reason?

Mine's the one with a one one-way ticket out of this EUSSR satellite in the pocket.

@Mr Larrington

Merlin Minshall is his real name. A great character, when my mother met him he was running a travel agent's in Chelsea. He had a brilliant mustache, a bit like Dali's, was also apparently a supply history teacher, and drove around in a customised Bedford camper.

I do wonder, however, how much of what he claimed was actually true, he could tell some amazing tales.

Mine's the coat with big tales.
