Aracnophobia


Spiders are busy 

with threads and knots 

 'Where is the leader?'






France and Germany try to decide who will be yEUr new leader.  

They fail to reach agreement. 

More back-scratching on the cards and wishful thinking in the stars. 

Merkel's 'Spitzenkandidat' appears to be a big sticking point.

'But there are more than two or three players in this EU master web' you say.  

'Knot that you'd know it' say I.

THE TORY TOP TEN AND OTHER MORSELS






THE  TORY TOP TEN

In London

There are TEN candidates

Vying for the vacancy

The job

At number TEN.


They could all do it.

They could

take it in turns.

TEN days a week.

Each after each.


           Half of them are ex-drug addicts.

And the other half are still at it.

Fings may only get worse

Before they get better.



WOT, NO MORE CARTOONS?

According to my Breitbart News link  the International New York Times is to STOP PUBLISHING POLITICAL CARTOONS because they offend too many people. Especially religious groups.

But don't worry.  Who needs political cartoons when the real thing is already insanely hilarious?


I'd suggest the NYT publish a political cartoon of their own cartoon-less political paper.


Zen's ass shall consider the demise of Macron's tree in the White House garden.

Diseased and uprooted.

Oui?

Now we know. It's a break with tradition!


It's three cheers for Archie Harrison!

The bookies must've cleaned up.

When I heard the names a short time ago I immediately thought of Archie Andrews and Harrison Birtwistle.

Can't believe I used to listen to a ventriloquist on the radio!  I really enjoyed those shows.

Bolted


The EU has decided that no more 500 euro notes can be issued.

Apparently they are the terrorists currency of choice. A million euros worth can be slipped into a briefcase.

But they will NOT be withdrawn from circulation any time soon.

How many of these 'useful' notes have been issued to date.

The answer is 500,000,000.

Five hundred million in plain English.

With a value of €250,000,000,000.

Two hundred and fifty thousand million euros.

That's a lot.

Think what you could buy with it.

Weapons.

Drugs.

All sorts of bad things.

The words 'horse' and 'stable door' should cross your mind.

Can you believe the EU could be so naiive?

Neither can I.

I suspect they knew exactly what they were doing all along.

Maybe you do too?
