25 million reasons to resign

Why is Alistair Darling still Chancellor?

Why is Gordon Brown still Prime Minister?

Just how incompetent can you be and remain in office?

25 milion people in this country are asking themselves these very questions this morning. Two more people should be asking the questions and coming to a singular and unavoidable conclusion.

The Mauling of Justice

Today, a woman walked free from a British court of law, despite the fact that she and she alone had been instrumental in causing the death of a five-year-old child in her care. The child in question, her own grand-daughter was mauled to death by the family pet dog. Not only was the child mauled, so was justice.

The woman was acquitted by a jury despite the facts that:

• she admitted letting the dog into the house
• the dog was of a breed, ownership of which is prohibited by British law
• the dog had attacked another member of the family only six weeks earlier
• there was a 'family rule' that the dog was not to be let into the house in the presence of the child

On hearing the verdict, the child's father stood up and walked from the court in disgust. Is it any surprise?

On this day

On this day in 1956, England's spin bowler Jim Laker took all 10 Australian first innings wickets for 88 runs in 46 overs at the Oval Test Match. In the second innings, he took a further 9 wickets, the 10th being picked up by fellow spin bowler Tony Lock.

Why do I mention this? Well at the time my mother was a Test Cricket fanatic and would not miss a single ball no matter what.
