ITV Football Morons

I've just watched the FA Cup Final on ITV and some moron had put a thermometer at pitch side in direct sunlight and lo and behold it was showing 41.5c!!!
Of course the commentator made a big deal of this saying how hot it was for the players etc.
Are they serious?!

Any fool knows that if you put a thermometer in the direct sun then the reading given is a hugely inaccurate one. The reason for this is that the sun heats up the material the thermometer is made of and the thermometer then measures this temperature and not the temperature of the air.

So what this thermometer was measuring was the temperature of the plastic that the thermometer was made of and not the temperature of the Wembley air!
To prove this point today to my son I placed my own meteorological thermometer from out of the shade where it was reading 22c into the sun where it soared to 34c.
The record temperature for Britain is 38.5c, do ITV really think that today was the hottest day ever? and by 3c!!!!!!!!!
Do they even give a shit?
Either the production team and commentator are idiots or pretty much liars.
Neither is acceptable.

While I'm on this subject (ITV football) was I the only one whilst watching the Champions League final the other night to notice that the camera was so far away from the pitch that I (and everyone else probably) could not tell properly what was going on?

Again no mention of this from the ITV morons.
They're getting as bad as the BBC.

P.S. For the record, the max temp in London today was 23c. Say no more!

MP's show no shame

Just when you think that this whole MP's expenses thing can't get any worse...

Thieving MP's

The case of the MP's fiddling their expenses (stealing) is undoubtedly one of the worst political scandals that Great Britain has ever known.

I, like most people, have felt shocked and angry over it all.

But to me the truly frightening thing about this sorry saga is that the very people that are in charge of every aspect of all of our everyday lives have actually been stealing our money all along.

And the only regret they have is that they've been found out.


I watched the Burnley v Sheff Utd Championship football play off final yesterday and the TV commentator said that nearly half the population of Burnley were there at Wembley watching the match.
So, being the anorak that I am, I did some checking (Wikipedia) and found out that Burnley has a population of 87,000 and around 35,000 of these were at the match.
Of the 87,000 population of Burnley, 8% are Asian. That's roughly 7,000.
So on those numbers, there should have been roughly 3,000 Asians amongst the Burnley fans yesterday.
I didn't see one, although closer inspection may have revealed a few (but not many - and certainly not 3,000).

Why is this?

I thought we were supposed to be one big happy multicultural family now, all sailing along in the same ship with the same interests etc. Or is this just a media lie?

What we have in Britain today is NOT in my opinion a nice big happy clappy melting pot but voluntary apartheid.

Peter Hitchens

Peter Hitchens criticises the BNP (again) on his blog today but as usual fails to come up with any alternative.

BNP and the England Football Team

Nick Griffin came under attack this week (nothing new there) by a group calling itself Show Racism the Red Card (who?).
They said the usual twaddle about the England football team under the BNP, ie: all white, and even apparently Beckham not allowed to play for them because his grandfather was Jewish.
I'll leave aside the fact that the BNP to my knowledge has at least one Jewish councillor, but my main point is this- does Gordon Brown pick the England football team? did Margaret Thatcher? did Winston Churchill? Tony Blair? of course not. So why would Nick Griffin?
Prime ministers and political parties do not (in this country anyhow) pick the national football team.
It's just another silly little smear that I'm sure is actually quite counterproductive.
I'm always amazed that people still come out with this kind of rubbish and even more amazed that the press still print it.

Lib Dem's and the Gurkha's.

So the Lib Dem's backed the campaign to let the Gurkha's in.

A worthy campaign that I agreed with, but the Lib Dem's? The Lib Dem's do not believe in border controls of any sort, they believe in free movement of all people around the world, without impingement.

So they are not sticking up for the Gurkha's per se, they are saying 'let them in' but they are also saying 'let everyone in, at all times, whoever they are'.

A bit disingenuous I'd say.
