News from the East

The 'Credit Crunch' claimed its third prime minister this week as the PM of Hungary resigned following both Iceland and Latvia in ditching its leadership. Given that he got caught admitting to lying on a grand scale to the Hungarian public perhaps we should be surprised he has lasted this long. Who, we wonder, will be next?

Meanwhile in the Czech Republic the government of Mirek Topolanek has lost a vote of no confidence and will be forced to resign. This may not sound like big news, but given that the Czech Republic is currently holding the presidency of the EU a collapsing government could have a serious impact as the EU struggles to deal with the impact of the global recession and the increasing assertive Russian Bear.

Biggest Game of the Season

On Saturday Moseley will face Exeter in a game that has been doubled up so it counts for both league points and as the cup semi-final. This is by far Moseley's biggest game since their recent revival began a few years ago. I would urge everyone that can to get down to Billesley Common on Saturday and cheer on Birmingham's top rugby team. GO MOSE.

Papal Ignorance

I understand that the Pope told journalists on a flight to Cameroon that condoms only exacerbated the AIDS pandemic. Instead he called for a return to spiritual values. So whilst the Pope waits for us all to rerturn to God's chosen path, a path which mankind has never and will never follow, thousands and thousands can die because men who use prostitutes in Africa refuse to were condoms. Nice. Here's an idea which, whilst at odds with Catholic doctrine, may actually save lives why don't we provide free condoms, arrest anyone who refuses to ware one when visting a prostitute and educate young people as to the dangers of HIV/AIDS.

No better still lets just sit on our Papal backside and lecture journalists instead.

Birmingham Two Star Council

News reaches the Oscott bunker that the audit Commission has downgraded Birmingham City Council from a three star to a two star rating. This is deeply worrying as it shows that the progress made in the last decade is in danger of being wiped out by a Tory administration hell bent on cutting costs rather than improving service.

Sorry to get all partisan but our glorious leader Mike Whitby is clearly not capable of giving the city the leadership it needs or deserves.

Peter Hitchens - Britain's last great bigot

Here is an article from Peter Hitchens on the film 'Milk', which was published in the Sunday Mail this week.

"Penn and the tricky truth about gay power

I rather thought the extraordinary film Milk, starring Sean Penn as the American homosexual activist Harvey Milk, would pick up a few Oscars. This is a subject that really gets Hollywood going.
Milk is an interesting movie, though like so many these days it is much too long. It does at least hint at the extraordinarily promiscuous lifestyles of many pre-HIV homosexuals. It also contains a very telling and honest moment where Milk – no slouch at the tricks of politics – proclaims that he is
‘a homosexual with power’, and proceeds to wield it. He was the first of many."

I don't think i have to say too much, other than I find Hitchens a disgrace. Apart from the obvious fact that Harvey Milk was certainly not the first homosexual with power, i would like to also know what other films about gay politicians have been produced by Hollywood as its a subject that "really gets Hollywood going".

I also wonder if this article is another attack in his ongoing battle with blogger Iain Dale, following the last pile of homophobic drivel he published.

The man is a bigoted fool and the Mail should have nothing to do with him.
