What to do, What to do...?

a) start a 'Team McCann' campaign involving the Global media, Industry, Government and PR Strategy advisors, b) raise £2.5 in rewards from, among others, The News of The World in the search for their daughter Madeleine or c) pay just £10 out of their significant joint (civil servant) salaries for a babysitter to look after three children under the age of four so that we could all be spared this pathetic circus.
Let us hope that the silence of the Portugese police service is not indicative of a lack of leads and that she will be found, soon.
ps. Don't forget to fix that all important general audience with the Pope.

Let's Go Backwards (about 100 years)

I have just discovered yet another benefit of living in MultiCultiLand. The BBC have just reported that school children in Luton are contracting T.B. (link) at an alarming rate. 'Big deal' you may think, but a little digging into the facts and things look rather unsavoury - I am mystified as to why the BBC failed to look into the facts and provide us all with a proper evaluation....
It turns out that Luton has three times as many incidents of TB than the national average. Three times. Strange.
In what other respect does Luton nearly beat the national average by three to one, I hear you ask. And the answer the number of immigrants enriching it.
In the 2001 census, 7.5% of respondents nationwide were born outside the UK. But in Luton, that figure was nearly 20%.
Of course, there could be some other explanation for this perfect corrolation. Sadly for the Multi-Culti gang it has been clearly established that, to quote from a report from the charity TB Alert, "increases in TB rates are directly linked to immigration". If the Luton schoolchildren did not contract TB as a result of immigration, plenty of others obviously did.
Just another one of the myriad ways in which immigration enriches Britain.

Zimbabwean Cricket

It was excellent to hear this morning that John Howard has had the courage to intervene and mandate that the Australian Cricket team will not tour Zimbabwe. He stands alone thus far as a leader who is prepared to openly state that Mugabe is a "grubby dictator" and therefore won't play ball.
This follows hot on the heels of the announcement that, despite some manoeuvrings behind the scenes at the UN, Zimbabwe is going to be leading the United Nations Commission on Sustainable Development. What a comedy. The man who will be in charge, Francis Nhema the Minister for Environment and Tourism, has an interesting track record in sustainable development. He has managed to take a 2,000 acre farm (when I say 'take' that is what I mean) from the white farmer who owned it and has turned it into a 'wasteland' according to sources ( What Nhema has done has been repeated thousands of times over in Zimbabwe. Rhodesia on the other hand had a very good track record of sustainable development earning itself the moniker 'the bread basket of Africa'. However, since Mugabe decided that the white farmers should be shown the door and their land taken over by 'late developers' the country has spiralled out of control, going from a net exporter of food to be famine ridden.
Maybe Howard's spine might prove to be some inspiration to the gutless leaders of the developed world who insist on meddling in, involving and even talking to leaders of 'late developer' nations. They should be left well alone.
