A few bits and bobs to enjoy while we wait for the Government to melt down into oblivion, Gordon Brown to give up, the BNP to be destroyed at the polls (come on!) and the warm weather to give way to horizontal hailstorms just ahead of the weekend.
Don't Get Mad, Get Accurate - update on how those PCC complaints against the Daily Mail's lies regarding gay adoption are going. Amazingly one of the planks in the Mail's defence is using Iain Duncan Smith to represent 'an increasing number of [scientific] studies'. Er, no, he's just a person.
The Daily Quail - The Mail plumbs the depths of poor taste. A nice roundup of Mail hypocrisy topped off with their latest atrocity - smashing apart the anonymity of an incest victim.
Five Chinese Crackers - Why you shouldn't vote for the BNP. A comprehensive guide to why the BNP are a shameless bunch of bastards, focussing on what happens when have had electoral success. It's not pretty.
Upon Nothing - Twitter causes brain overload, according to study. Yes, it's our friends at the Mail again with a bit of panic-porn over Twitter. Presumably there's also a study out there that says reading the Mail turns your brain into raspberry jam and gives you all the political nous of a shit-stained shower curtain.
No Sleep Til Brooklands - International fugitives come from other countries, Mail finds. Well, who would have thought it? Top-class investigative journalism from Britain's No 1 screamsheet.
Rhetorically Speaking - Near Miss. The Mail came so close to being able to write about Jacqui Smith without being horribly sexist, but...
Bloggerheads - Billy Brit The Racist Shit Vol 3. These get better and better.
Dave Turner's Procrastination Station - One for the drunks among you. I really must remember this tip for the next time I'm hungry and in need of a lift home - it's a beauty.
Finally, here's an excellent article written by an airline pilot on why the Air France flight crashed into the Atlantic this week. Reasoned, well thought out and all based on evidence. Which marks a distinct contrast with Britain's leading aviation experts:
Yes, the Star have decided that it's a new Bermuda (but not over Bermuda) Triangle (except it's not a triangle), and that the plane was 'swallowed by a black hole' (except it wasn't). Tomorrow, I assume the same newspaper will be telling its readers which way to vote in the European Elections.
