Vacuum Cleaners

It is unwise to have sex with vacuum cleaners in public!

"A man police caught performing a sex act with a car wash vacuum has been sentenced to 90 days in prison.

Jason Leroy Savage must also submit to drug testing.
The 29-year-old from Michigan, was sentenced at Saginaw County Circuit Court.
Savage pleaded no contest to indecent exposure last month.

Police said Savage was arrested after a resident called officers early on October 16 to report suspicious activity at a car wash in Thomas Township, about 90 miles north-west of Detroit.

Savage's lawyer, Philip Sturtz, didn't immediately return a message seeking comment

Advice To Workmen Who Charge By The Hour

Turn your mobiles off when you start a job and only turn them on to check them when you are on a break; rather than conducting your love life, placing bets and running half a dozen other jobs during the course of your paid by the hour assignment.

Reality Check

In case some of you haven't yet realised it, the UK is now broke.

All the plans and promises made by the government wrt pensions, NHS, education etc will be quietly broken; as there simply isn't any cash left to pay for them.

We have been living beyond our means, the consequences are not going to be very pleasant.

Advice To Harriet Harman

Your "court of public opinion" is nothing more than a lynch mob stirred up by lousy politicians such as yourself, in a pathetic attempt to divert the public's attention from your own failures and to conduct your private vendettas.

To say that public opinion outranks the rule of law shows the contempt that you, and your colleagues, have for the rule of law in the UK.

My advice to you is to shut up, lest someone subject you to the "court of public opinion".

Lynch mobs can turn on those who set them up!

As and when you leave office, and leave the country and its financial system in a mess; will you forgo your pension and future earnings from lecture tours etc, as you have suggested that the "greedy" bankers (some of whom you gave knighthoods to) should do?
