Why George Osborne is screwing with updating benefits

WHY is George Osborne screwing with your benefits? Because he can, basically. But the how is more interesting:

If the move is implemented, many benefits would be frozen for two years, then rising only in line with average pay.

Leave aside the freeze for a moment. Concentrate on the average pay instead. The “only” part.

Mitt Romney lanches a grenade into his own campaign – the Mother Jones video

MITT Romney told guests at a $50,000-per-head event in Boca Raton, Florida, that 47 per cent of Americans were shamwless government dependents who would vote for Mr Obama no matter what he did:

“[They] believe that they are victims, who believe the Government has a responsibility to care for them. These are people who pay no income tax … I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives…”

His job “is not to worry about those people”…

“Frankly, I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth.”

The best Barack Obama burning effigies – Islamists go bonkers for Bonfire Night (photos)

ONE thing you cannot escape noticing is that Islamists love scarecrows. Wherever and whenever an anti-American protest breaks out some gurning loon will be there with an effigy of the US President he wants to set on fire. It isn’t Santa Claus’s Christmas, Halloween or Mother’s Day the US should have exported round the globe – it’s Bonfire Night, that British custom of spending every November 5th in the company of a stuffed, militant religionist (in this case the Catholic Guy Fawkes) with a rocket up his arse. If you want to show the jihadis that they are not the enemy, give them a hot jacket potato, a sparkler and invite them to bring an effigy to burn on the Bonfire. Recently, the Bonfire Nighters have been focusing on Barack Obama. Here are some of the best scarecrows/ effigies / Guys so far:

Save Friern Barnet library from the council’s idiots

TO 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:

“Libraries are cultural hubs, there are lots of reasons why people need them. People need to read books — even in the age of the internet, libraries are really crucial.”

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.

Putin has opted for a hang glider as his mean of elevation. He will not be fired from a cannon. That would, says his reps, be ridiculous.

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

THIN 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.”

Desmond Tutu is wrong to want Tony Blair tried for war crimes

GOD wants to arrest Tony Blair. Well, at least Archbishop and Nobel Peace Laureate Desmond Tutu does. He writes:

The immorality of the United States and Great Britain’s decision to invade Iraq in 2003, premised on the lie that Iraq possessed weapons of mass destruction, has destabilised and polarised the world to a greater extent than any other conflict in history.
