  1. I suspect that the she-wolf’s Plan B is to bump off Slick Willie in the expectation of harvesting a sympathy vote.

  2. Has the Guardian been alerted to this horrific sexism ?
    I expect CiF articles demanding that all the scientists involved be sacked.

  3. It does illustrate just how quickly political correctness has spewed all over us. Where’s IanB, he usually has an interesting viewpoint on this kind of thing.

    Very wise to slip out this news quietly on the day that Fireman Sam disses the Koran and dominates the world of outrage.

    Well, it was pretty bad that Fireman Sam walked on pages of the koran.

  6. The fireman sam thing seems a little blown up out of all proportion – it was a single page that bears a passing resemblance in an episode broadcast nearly two years ago.

    Mattel have said that they won’t work with the animation company again – no matter how good the rest of their output, that’s one revenue stream closed off (unless they were crap and Mattel were looking for an excuse).

    I find pages of the Koran make good firelighters to get the charcoal going nicely when you’re having a pig roast.

  8. Certainly one of the finest female singer-songwriters of my lifetime. That’s Dolly Parton not Dolly the Sheep.
