A Funny Thing Happened To Me When I Tried To Post on Twitter Lastnight

Lastnight I tried to share a YouTube video on Twitter, but something a bit weird happened.

The video was about a slightly dodgy electrical heating device made in China, and had the title “Chinese automatic house ignitor. (also available in pink)” and was made by a British Youtuber called Bigclivedotcom. Here it is below for your viewing pleasure:
Unfortunately trying to share it to twitter via either the share button, or copy & pasting the title and url directly into twitter did not go smoothly. Continue reading “A Funny Thing Happened To Me When I Tried To Post on Twitter Lastnight”

The Drudge Report Ain’t No Fun Anymore

There have been a handful of posts like these going around about the once well known news service The Drudge Report, which for those of you who don’t know is a news aggregation service that has been sharing news from around the interweb on social media since before it was cool (much like I try to do with this place, kind of).

This one here being the most recent I have seen pointing out it isn’t what it was….

Apparently there is a reason for this Continue reading “The Drudge Report Ain’t No Fun Anymore”

FBPE Remoaners Get More Creepy and Weird

I was perusing the Twitter trending stuff a brief while ago, and I spotted this amongst one of them…..

Fuel Duty – NOT THAT WAY!

Perusing through my twitter timeline earlier I spotted a news story that basically says the fight for lower and fairer fuel duty is going about as well as ever.


Despite defeating Commie Corbyn in the time that’s elapsed since I last posted on this place, and the Conservatives this website was originally set up to support from the grassroots won big style, you may have noticed there was enough frustration with the way the party was heading as it was without this crap.

There’s the nonsense of trying to get rid of proper cars that actually work + the nonsense about trying to get rid of cheap to run ways to stay warm in winter. Now there’s this.

People were already pissed off with the price of Petrol and Diesel when the last Labour government was seeing out it’s final few years, and it’s mostly just been frozen in the time the Conservatives have been running the show.

Earlier I wrote a blog post or policy page (or was planning to) suggesting scrapping fuel duty altogether (as well as Alcohol + Tobacco duties), and just sticking a single higher 35% “sin” rate of VAT on them instead to make things fairer and clearer.

I sort of lost track of how much of the cost petrol & diesel consists of the tax on the stuff several years ago when it was hovering around 70-75% or something stupid like that.


UPDATE:

Would You Trust Labour With Your Kids?

I see quite a lot of social media posts during the course of the typical week, and recently I saw 2 about the Labour Party that should concern anyone with an interest in child safety.

Agent Cob Tries to Smear #GE2019 Rivals With Russian Documents

It was already previously known that Jeremy Corbyn was a useful idiot for the Russians, and was known as Agent Cob.

Corbyn’s Labour: Seriously Bad for Your Wealth. Seriously Bad for Business.

You may have noticed in the news that #GE2019 is in full swing still.

During the past week or so, 3 of the main newspapers that ordinary hardworking people actually read have had articles out with experts explaining just how bad Corbyn’s lot would be for your financial health.

Auntie Beeb Needs A Good Spanking

After the leaders debate type thing on the BBC earlier on, the main takeaway I’m getting is that the BBC Bias on display was among some of the worst ever seen. Continue reading “Auntie Beeb Needs A Good Spanking”

Don’t Ban Petrol and Diesel Cars You Morons

Another day, Another Green crap policy proposal that makes me consider my options of which British political party to give my vote to when needed.

I was already pissed off at the “Conservative” party for ruining my favourite fizzy drinks & fruit cordials with that stupid misguided sugar tax under the hopeless May woman.

In my previous blog post I was rolling my eyes at the proposal to ban cheap to run gas boilers in a country where it gets cold enough to freeze your nuts off.

When I got up today I saw in the news they were dusting off and toying with the stupid idea of bringing forward plans to ditch proper cars that actually work with stupid useless electric things so terrible they make even that old socialist sh*tbox the Trabant look partially decent.
