Great gobs of howling lies being published all over the place.
A lie can go round the world before the truth has its boots on – because it was bought a first class ticket by a government-funded puritan campaign group.
I’m not 100% certain that ‘bollocks’ is actually a refutation. (Except in the case of Polly Toynbee.)

Given their track record, I would place greater faith in the existence of the Easter Bunny
You doubt the existence of the Easter Bunny? Egad, who do you think trains the Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus?

John, all you will ever need is right here. Definitely worth an RSS add.
