Either The Police are lying bastards, or Andrew Mitchell a (former) top Tory MP is a man not to be believed. Is there no-one we can have faith in anymore ?? It has certainly shaken me to the marrow.
As if to prove a point, and according to the loonies amongst us, -(and when I say loonies, I’m chiefly talking about the population of the American mid-west) the world ends tomorrow, Friday 21st December 2012. Which is a pity, cos I’d just finished by Christmas wrapping (as opposed to christmas rapping, which I gave up a long time ago). If you can’t trust the Police, the Government and an ancient Mayan prophecy, who or what the hell can you believe in ???
Anyway, in the unlikely event that the world does survive….
At some stage between Laura Robson‘s silver medal and the heats of the men’s Kayak at Eton, the human race landed another in a series of robots on Mars to seek the answer to a question we have all asked at some time or other: “How the Buzz Aldrin can we justify spending all that money on space exploration looking for a drop of water and an interesting pebble to take home ?”
The robot is called Curiosity, though I was disappointed that my suggestion to call it “Vulgar Extravagance” was rejected by NASA, a point thumped into me one afternoon by two men sporting sunglasses and military haircuts who turned up at my doorstep to explain things.
