SWAT AMNESTY

Pakistan’s Swat Valley is royally screwed and the roll over for Pakistan is as has always been; just another day in Mohammed’s paradise and another day closer to the end of the world.

Amnesty International says that in the world ‘seven people a day are executed’, but add that the world is moving towards abolition of this travesty. Has anyone from Amnesty ever been to Swat Valley in Pakistan and seen what is going on? Have they really been inside Iran or some of the towns in Afghanistan? Like the Taliban is going to listen to Amnesty; like the people in these areas have ever heard of Amnesty.  They don’t even have electricity for God’s sake, yet they still (more…)

JINGLISH & ASININE DISORDER

This blog gets a little political at times, but it was NEVER intended that way. The following is fun if you manage to read it all and indeed typifies the original purpose of this blog, which was to highlight bad media, whether that is advertising (primary design), print or broadcast.  Great media can also be accommodated and exposed, so don’t hold back.  I am beginning to receive some pretty bizarre samples of bad, so let’s do a little exposé  shall we? I just received an odd one from a Jane S about the Golden Tulip Hotel, which you can see below. Of the thousands I have in my collection, I have not reproduced them here as most are already circulating as a net funny sent around. You know the stuff; signs seen in a Chinese mall and so on, because most of these are just misinterpretation of language usage and nothing to do with media although the result is the same and the guilty shot. If the oddity is in English, then every British person thinks it funny for sure, but in most cases the same would be totally wasted on the rest of the world who speak English as a second language. Across the developing world, English only speakers are grateful, or should be, to know that this language is widely spoken. Let’s face it, it is very convenient for the British and American and the majority would be totally screwed if not, as language skills are bottom of their list in most cases. It is mine. However, it is no excuse for poor or bad English to be used in the media, yet every hour of every day bears witness to a complete crock of bollix being displayed either on radio, TV, billboards or in some cases, the daily English language newspapers in these countries. An in-house survey (small but representative) shows that almost nobody cares. ‘Ah! But it is sweet and they don’t know, bless them’, torts every liberalholic. Maybe so, but screw up in their own language and you might be deported from some states. In fact,  (more…)

BRITISH BOLLIX CORPORATION OR THE P.P.C.

PPC  – PATHETICALLY POLITICALLY CORRECT!

Here we go again! Carol Thatcher, the daughter of Britain and the world’s first Iron Lady, Margret Thatcher has been sacked from the BBC. Well, not permanently sacked exactly, but sacked until whenever, all for the sake the BBC’s crony left appeasement and continued agenda to drive anything Margret into oblivion. I am no fan of Carol Thatcher, but I am extremely defensive this pathetic infringement of her right to think and say what she wants, without having to crawl on the floor and apologize for it. Apologize to who anyway – The BBC, the Asians, the blacks, me, who?

Many believe with immense conviction (Lord Norman Tebbit among them) that the BBC was responsible for the demise of Lady Thatcher because her next step would have been to disband this God awful dungeon of worms. For those who remember the hatchets out for her, it was literally a dreadful state of affairs, with the BBC leading the crusade. Thatcher really did no wrong and was herself in danger of removing not only the BBC, but the mass of neo liberals from the face of the country. Not through gas chambers or totalitarian law, but simply because of her popularity. (more…)
