Caption Competition Winner…

I am pleased to announce – while I would like everyone to win – that I drank of the wines of the Gods last night and after locking myself away and smoking enough to raise puffs of white smoke through the chimney… there is a winner of my Caption Competition last week ……..

……… and it is John Flood – for valour and his many entries…  I shall be getting in touch with Wildy’s very soon to arrange for the a book to be sent to you, John.

You’ll have to go and look at the many entries… but there were some very good ones including a reference to Caroline Flint

I shall do another one soon… and the prize will be a free #Smokedo lesson with a 30aday Dan Master… Moi!

21st June: Summer Solstice

It is the longest day, the summer Solstice. A year ago I was in West London and I recalled my interview with King Arthur, who I used to have the odd drink with at The Bollo.  I have left West London  to live by the sea.

In fact… I plan, in time, to wonder around various parts of Britain’s coast and live by the sea.  It seems like a good plan – and will allow me to indulge my new hobby of clearing British coastal waters of prawns…  by eating them.  Prawns may well be at the heart of the world’s global warming problem and if it transpires that they are, I shall probably get an award from Greenpeace for doing this important work.

Regular readers will know that I peruse the News of the World each Sunday morning;  a public service I carry out for readers of a more aesthetic disposition who do not indulge in my grubby habit of reading the tabloids.  Sure enough… another story exposing the lurid goings on in some parts of the judiciary

The News of the World reports:

A SENIOR married judge had a secret nine-month fling with a £250-a-night RENT BOY, the News of the World can reveal.

Judge Gerald Price QC, 60, was so besotted with 25-year-old Christopher Williams he set him up with a FLAT, paid him a monthly ALLOWANCE and let him sit on the bench in court as he presided over TRIALS.

Williams said: “His business is truth but he’s been living a lie.”

Apparently Judge Price let his rent boy  sit on the bench with him ‘while he jailed criminals’.

The Ministry of Justice is investigating… but it looks as if Judge Price will have more time to spend with his friend and get value from his £420 ‘sex season ticket’. (Full story in NOTW)

As usual… Guido Fawkes gets his man: +++ Jim Devine MP Referred to Met Police +++

Guido writes: “Hopefully Jim will have got his story straight by the time they ask him to explain the fake invoice from a fake company with a fake VAT number.  He has given the Scottish press various explanations involving pubs and cash.  That should work Jim…  Not.”

The saga continues… John Gummer pays £10,oo0 in expenses claims  to a company he owns. Gummer, alread in some diffoiculty over claims to clear moles from his garden may now be considering his position.  Plod is closing in and there may well be prosecutions.  Plod has changed his mind about investigating MPs.

Ah well….time for a spot of breakfast and a shower! Back later…
