Save Friern Barnet library from the council’s idiots

 Save Friern Barnet library from the councils idiotsTO Friern Barnet Library, where “community librarians” (eight squatters) have gained access to the closed amenity. They vow to reopen the library, which was closed by cost-cutting Barnet council in April.

Squatter Dan, 31, tells the Evening Standard:

putin crane Vladimir Putin flies with cranes VLADIMIR Putin will fly at the head of a flock of previously captive cranes. The Flight of Hope will feature Putin clad in a white robe, helmet and optional beak at the birds’ head.

Mitt Romney likes to sing about boys: Phil Lynott’s Thin Lizzy and the Barry O’bama question

 Mitt Romney likes to sing about boys: Phil Lynotts Thin Lizzy and the Barry Obama questionTHIN Lizzy is providing Mitt Romney with some walk on music. But Phil Lynott’s mum says her son would not have backed the Republicans. Phil Lynott’s mother is called…Phil Lynott.

Philomena Lynott tells Hot Press magazine:

“As far as I am concerned, Mitt Romney’s opposition to gay marriage and to civil unions for gays makes him anti-gay – which is not something that Philip would have supported. He had some wonderful gay friends, as indeed I do, and they deserve equal treatment in every respect, whether in Ireland or the United States. Neither would Philip have supported his policy of taxing the poor and offering tax cuts to the rich, which Paul Ryan is advocating. There is certainly no way that I would want the Lynott name to be associated with any of those ideas.”

Highlights from Vladmir Putin book ‘The Life of A Galley Slave’

PA 14394690 752x1024 Highlights from Vladmir Putin book The Life of A Galley SlaveVLADIMIR Putin might be more than just a torso. Opposition leader Boris Nemtsov’s has given his name to a report entitled “The Life of A Galley Slave” about the wealth of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Nemstov and co-author Solidarity activist Leonid Martynyuk claim that President Vladimir Putin is using billions of taxpayers’’ rubles on 20 luxurious residences, dozens of jets, four yachts and a collection of exquisite wristwatches.

“One of the most serious reasons prompting V. Putin to hold on to power is the atmosphere of wealth and luxury to which he has become accustomed. In a country where more than 20 million people barely make ends meet, the luxurious life of the president is a blatant and cynical challenge to society. We absolutely cannot put up with this….We did not publish data on the cost of the clothes and things that Putin regularly uses: the suits, shoes and ties worth tens of thousands of dollars – mere trifles when compared to the villas, aeroplanes watches and cars…In a country where more than 20 million people can hardly make ends meet, the luxurious life of the president is a blatant and cynical challenge to society by a limitless ruler”
