UN votes that ripping the piss out of muslims is illegal

Apparently these followers of the paedophile prophet are so worried about people blackmouthing them, they feel that the UN needs to encourage its members to outlaw free speech.

Jim Webb vs The US Prisons

For the land of the free, it’s a bit strange that the US has 25% of the global prison population – whilst only having 5% of the total population. Where Stalin had his gulags, the US is doing much much worse with its prisons. It has more of its own population behind bars than any […]

PETA’s Pet Slaughterhouse

Quite incredibly it seems that not only did PETA only find homes for 7 out of some 2216 animals given into it’s care over 2008, it killed the rest! Of course, in order to showcase just how inhumane people can be, they went and killed a whole load of animals to make commercials showing how […]

Deutsche SS Storm Wikileaks owners’ house

The German government has stormed Wikileaks’ owners house for ‘distribution of pornographic material’ after Wikileaks published the censorship lists of Australia and several other countries.

The UK will lose your data one way or another

If the government isn’t handing out your personal data on USB sticks, laptops or just through their unsecure own networks, they’ll dump computers containing your hospital and patient data unencrypted on the streets for you to take home with you.

And – surprise surprise – it contains a whole load of sites that aren’t supposed to be on the list, such as legitimate businesses (who must have gotten on the wrong side of […]

How to shame your WWII veterans: don’t attend the D-day anniversary, or fund the 500 remaining troops the trip to attend. The UK prime minister, Gordon Brown, won’t be attending and claims sending the vets there will be too expensive. There will be no official recognition from London, even though the US, French and even […]

Cartoons of children and sex to be illegal in the UK

The bill, as it stands, would make it a criminal offence to possess (cartoon) pictures of children participating in sexual activities, or present whilst sexual activity took place How silly is that then?

Dutch courts going the way of shut the fuck up

A Dutch forum – internetoplichting.nl – where you can post if you’ve been scammed or otherwise treated badly by an internet shop, has been held responsible for the posts depicting Trendylaarzen as a crap shop.
