It's all sunlight uplands, rosy cheeked children and Mrs Dale's Diary. Take the blue pill "The Tory Party is Britain" and you'll be grinning & giggling in idiocy in no time.

Hey. No co-opting The Small Faces for the right wing. That's a really good song.

Here's some seriousl WTF'ery for ya, of the sort that we see all too often in the US, and most commonly in Florida, but this is home-grown crass stupidy, in Scotland.

Man found guilty of putting baby in tumble dryer.

I hope he gets jail time, which is pretty certain givin he's been remanded to custody to await sentencing, and that someone inside helps him inside one of the prison's tumble dryers......

In summer, my cat sleeps in the tumble dryer, just to mix it up a bit, she's now decided the washing machine is also worthy as bed space. Obviously we don't shut the door and don't turn it on but one morning I did go in and find she'd pulled the door almost closed. Once the weather starts cooling down she has to be lifted onto the benchtop where she has a fleece blanket..

In my next life I rather fancy returning as one of your cats. Do I get menu choices?
