In New York and the liberal coastal cities they are having a twitter wankfest as pop star Taylor Swift has come out as a Democrat and intervened to tell voters how to vote in the Tennessee Senate race. Of course all those endorsements from multi-millionaire celebs, Hollywood perverts and airheads helped crooked Hillary Clinton to the White House didn’t they. But the Tennesse race is meant to be tight.

The fraud African Potash (AFPO) has until 7 January ( saturday) to find a new Nomad or its shares get booted off the AIM casino first thing Monday. On the ISDX lobster pot (now known as the NEX lobster pot) it can't get a placing away - for reasons explained in this podcast - so it will be tits up within weeks. That has implications for Blenheim Natural Resources (BNR). Jamie Oliver is blaming Brexit as he shuts six of his over-priced branded eateries. But he is just another celeb tosser don't you think? I look at the real macro headwinds the UK faces. There is comment on Crawshaw (CRAW) and then a very detailed review of Lombard Risk Management (LRM) which is, I reckon a car crash in waiting.

Barring a successful last minute appeal by two married celebs the celebrity injunction will be lifted on Thursday morning. The celebs front up an Aids charity but do not want you to know that the younger of the two plays away from home having unprotected anal sex including in threesomes in baths filled with olive oil. The UK Courts are now minded to accept that an injunction is pointless since the latest polls suggest that 55% of folks in England & Wales can now name the celebs. This is the Streisand effect - gagging is counterproductive.
Up until ten days ago while my father, Thomas John Winnifrith, could wax eloquently on

It emerged last night that Tory MP John Whittingdale, now the Culture & Media minister, had a sexual relationship with a hooker before he became a minister. This has now prompted almost everyone involved in the sordid affair and everyone commenting on it, notably former MP Dr Death, Evan Harris, who now speaks for the odious Hacked Off body to spout complete drivel.
Four newspapers, that is to say three tabloids and the little read Indescribablyboring, knew about the affair but chose not to print details. They did so as they discovered about the relationship just after Leveson and were thus terrified of being bashed about intruding into the privacy of the MP, who was not married and did end the affair after he discovered he was dating a call girl.
That was a bad call by the press. Prostitution

On Tuesday I heard a loud noise inside Free Speech & Liberty Pizza and came in to find a young cook shouting loudly while a senior cook sat on a chair mopping blood from his head. The younger guy, Amin, had done a Jeremy Clarkson.
You are fired said I. And so he was. He shouted. He pushed me a bit but he was out of the building within ten minutes and will not return. Given he has only been on the payroll a few months he can have no comeback, you cannot hit a colleague.
That is what Jeremy Clarkson is alleged to have done. He seems to think

I have defended Jeremy Clarkson when he has been attacked unfairly – for instance when he made a series of factually accurate comments about the workshy semi feral population of the welfare safari that is the slum Liverpool. I cannot think that I have ever written a pleasant word about the politically correct nest of paedophile friendly vipers that is the BBC – I would privatise it at once. But for once I stand firm with the waste of taxpayers cash that is the Beeb.
Clarkson is alleged to have thrown a punch at an employee of top gear. In every single workplace in the country such conduct would see anyone – even a CEO – suspended pending an investigation and, if found guilty, fired. Simply being a celebrity does not buy you an exemption. O it should not buy you an exemption.
I see that Noel Edmonds is arguing that the BBC should accept that “stars” have to be treated differently. Rubbish. One of the facets of the sad decline of Britain is our lamentable worship of the cult of celebrity. Folks want to be famous just to be famous. And when you are famous somehow you get to live by different rules.
Maybe that is the way our nation is going. Maybe simply by being famous you can be allowed to hit your staff. What else are you allowed to do as a celeb which we plebs cannot do? Steal, cheat, murder? I don’t know but where exactly do the celeb-worshippers draw the line?
It was, arguably, this cult of celebrity that allowed Saville, Hall, Harris and the other monsters to get away with what they did.
Call me old fashioned
