Enter the Honourable Judge's favourite tavern for a dram of Tittle Tattle. There's an ancient bandit in the corner, but I forget his name...

Oh, I see things haven't changed that much during my absence.
The coalition government’s just announced salary cuts for police officers after giving a tax cut for top earning bankers and calling for a 32% payrise for MPs.
Here's a link to a satirical article about it. If your ISP is 3UK, you can't read it, sorry. They're thinking of the children (you).

Thanks OP B I enjoyed that and it's now bookmarked for further visiting.

Today has proven to be one of those wonderful moments in life when reality outstrips satire and imaginative humour.

Laugh number one.
I lifted this from The BBC News site ........

Illegal immigrants fleeing Britain are paying criminal gangs to smuggle them out of the UK, the BBC's Panorama programme has found.

The migrants are charged as much as £1,500 for the chance to be taken to mainland Europe.

Some want to try their luck elsewhere in the EU.


We are so stuffed even those who don't pay taxes , ignore motor insurance, fill up and drive off and fill their pockets before walking out of shops; can't afford to live here and are paying money to get out! You couldn't write a funnier sit-com for TV.

I know some may be itching to reply celebrating this exodus and don't misunderstand me anything that deters shysters and leaches is good news to me. And rats deserting sinking ships etc. is a valid comment, however what could possibly be more indicative of the title of this thread than illegal immigrants paying to get out?

Today's laugh number two.
When I revisited The BBC site to get The URL in order to add a link, I saw the Government Spin Doctors had insulted our collective intelligence by getting the BBC to insert the following ..............
The government said it is because they are cracking down on organised immigration crime.
Oh?... of course that's why they'll be paying to get out ....... yeah right!

I distinctly remember Maslow's Hierachy of Needs saying that an individual's fundamental requirements are Warmth, Food, Drink, Sleep and I believe Sex and Pooping were in there as well, how remiss of Maslow to overlook A piece of paper that says I can live here as being a basic essential?

Going to keep me smiling all day this one............ if only I had fifteen hundred sovs ...... I could go with them.

According to Giggle .......

6 Most Poisonous Animals In the World

1.) Poison Dart Frog
2.) Blue-Ring Octopus
3.) Stonefish
4.) Inland Taipan
5.) Box Jellyfish
6.) Brazilian Wandering Spider

Well I reckon that one of those has wandered off and is clearly lost.
Another one only needs his dart taken off him.
Nobody's told me the colour of my ring so why upset him?
I never eat fish, in fact I firmly refuse to eat anything that swims in its own pee and poo.
Don't go inland
Keep the box closed!

Job jobbed!

The reason the road outside Stuart's house is so deserted has nothing to do with the weather.

It's more to do with the way he takes photographs regardless of how many minutes ago!
When Elaine heard he wanted a flash camera for Xmas she misunderstood.
