Jamie Oliver inflicted on Greece – haven’t the poor bastards suffered enough?

Wandering through the streets of Athens today I happened upon a book stall set up by the side of the road. Pride of place at the top of the heap was the Greek version of one of Jamie Oliver’s works.

Youth unemployment at 65%, unemployment at 30%, massive cuts in the standard of living, corrupt politicians, German imposed austerity, the music of Nana Mouskori, Nazi Occupation in World War Two, a bitter Civil war afterwards and now Jamie. Surely it is time to say that poor Greece has suffered enough and that it does not need this one last misery heaped upon its suffering people?

BBC cannot bring itself to headline the big story on terror threat, those darn jihadists

Another day, another reason to wonder why on earth I have to pay a license fee to fund the BBC. This time the subject is the terror threat. Read the headline below “fastest-growing UK terror threat is from far right” and you would think that the streets are crawling with Nazis wanting to blow us up. Well er…not exactly, as the text of the article makes clear.
