Your Friday quiz:
Which political party leader started his career working for Liam Britton ?
Things have been very quiet around here for a bit, but not so quiet that I can;'t wish you all a merry Christmas.
The new year's going to be one almighty political bun fight - so enjoy the break !

We are getting thick skinned.
Really no one is really batting an eye lid over Sydney or even the massacre in Pakistan of innocent school kids. ( After all so many other equally evil, sick and disgusting events are perpetuated by the Jihadists on a daily basis, especially against Christians and other minorities in countries that are cursed with their rabid ideology. )
The sad truth is we're acclimatised to the sickness of the movement that carries it out.
Know a tree by the fruit it bears - and so we must now acknowledge what we are dealing with - but I bet you we won't, and that is the blindness that will allow these events to continue.
Perhaps also those like myself who have become acclimatised to hearing awful news like today's need to pray we never become so numbed by it we cease to demand justice and that we stand against such evil.

This blog was started as an experiment based on an article in a computing magazine about blogging. I couldn't figure out why it was so popular, but thought perhaps if I had a go I'd get the idea.
I tried a few posts, but not a twitch of satisfaction.
Not until I started to write about politics and specifically how angry and annoyed Gordon Brown made me ( and just about every other sane Englishman who wasn't a directly tax payer funded parasite of the Labour party ).
Things are bad for the North London Marxist elite that have lived their entire life as parasites on the taxpayer.
The White Van & England flag debacle has made clear to everyone that they are from another planet.
So what does our brought up by Marxists Labour leader authorise to help save his career ?
A bit of class war of course.
Hence the campaign to try to damage independent schools. This has the added advantage of attacking organisations that show just how big the attainment gap between our children's potential and the state education system ( as approved by Ed's pay masters The Unions ) is.
One thing is sure - he can forget that One Nation meme thing he tried on people a short while ago.
I've lost count of the number of attacks on UKIP that are coming from the Telegraph, Daily Mail and even today The Spectator.
One thing is sure - the establishment is rattled.
And so they should be.
Dear good people of Rochester & Strood,
Give them something to be worried about.

“The trouble with theoretical economists is that they don't understand that when you have a deficit, you can only finance it by borrowing, and you've got to persuade people that it's worth lending money to you and that they'll get their money back... there's no way of escaping it.” Dennis Healey during the 1976 Stirling Crisis."Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalist System was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens ... Lenin was certainly right. There is no subtler, no surer means of over-turning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose." John Maynard Keynes, 1920.
"To preserve [the people's] independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our selection between economy and liberty, or profusion and servitude." Thomas Jefferson, President of the United States of America,1801-1809.Inflation is taxation without legislation .. Milton Friedman
