Daily Express – same old garbage

As might be expected from a newspaper owned by porn baron Richard Desmond, the Daily Express once again went for the lowest common denominator in its coverage of the EU expansion issue. It was reported yesterday that politicians want restrictions placed on immigration from the new EU members in Eastern Europe (from Estonia down to Hungary) for seven years, as was the case when Spain, Portugal and Greece joined. The UK was supposedly the only country which has not imposed such restrictions (actually, France has not imposed any either, and others are allowing a few thousand a year). Continue reading

Microsoft’s “Inspirational Tour”

At my University (Kingston, in Surrey) Microsoft is going to be stopping on its “Inspirational Tour” next week - 11th Feb 2004! That’s next Wednesday! That means we can all go along and ask them some pertinent questions.

Like:

(1) When are they going to put out a decent operating system? (2) Given that Windoze XP has been such a disaster, how can we trust Longhorn if and when it comes out? (3) Why don’t they move over to a Unix-type operating system, as Apple has done so successfully?

Peter Bowditch and Roy Meadow

The “Millenium Project” has got to be one of the most odious little websites ever published, and this guy seems to think he’s the most rational dude out there. This website (despite its occasional attacks on racism and Holocaust denial) is mostly about defending the medical establishment, or rather, defaming anyone who criticises it. Continue reading

Islam and American Family Values

An interesting little site called “Ladies Against Feminism” - a call from some rather quaint-sounding ladies apparently in Oregon to give up their trousers and become housewives, among other things - has published an article by one J. Grant Swank, Jr, a lying Bush propagandist, sorry, conservative journo, and pastor in the “New Hope Church”, about the appalling situation of women in Afghanistan. There is no doubting that the situation is appalling, and in fact most of his article is the work of Amnesty International. You can read the full report here. Continue reading
