Seeing Is Believing

Now that some of the dust has settled on the Michael Jackson funeral, some 'strange' stories have started circulating about the parentage of his 'children'. These tales are alleging that in fact Jacko actually had no genetic input (aka sperm), involved in the process of creating these children.

A number of non african males, have come forward to claim the 'honour' as the sperm donor for Jacko, and the white mother he chose to bear 'his' children. This despite the fact that some of his fans allege Jacko had one illegitimate child Omer Bhatti (at least according to this video), even though this has been denied by him.

This is all very odd for a "Black Icon" and model for all "Afro Americans" ..... are the people who are still lauding him for his 'blackness', not even slightly embarrassed that this black icon apparently so longed to be 'white', that he not only allegedly spent millions on skin whitening, and facial operations, but that he also used a white female Debbe Rowe (Dr Kleins one time nursing assistant) , and allegedly white male sperm to ensure that his "children" where really (genetically) white.

Before he allegedly changed his appearance he looked like this ......

Now I know that genetics may not be big in the Jackson family, but even they must find it strange that all his 'children' are very 'caucasian' looking and not even brown (apart from the last one 'Blanket' who looks a bit hispanic).

Nor do they look much like any of the Jackson family ..... apart from La Toya Jackson who followed her brothers strange path as well.

Now I know that Wacko's friends and fans are completely blind to his faults, and make up little stories to explain his behavour towards young male adults, or his physical changes, but seeing is believing, and its hard to deny the obvious when its put in front of your eyes ...... however I suspect it will take DNA evidence to shake the belief of the true believers.

Edinburgh Fringe Pilgrimage

Once again, me and my mate 'Big Kenny' embarked on a tour of the Edinburgh Comedy Fringe. We do this most years and usually take in eight or so, comedy shows.

This year we saw the following shows in the venues listed.
  1. Abracadabra - German Humour Goes Global @ Underbelly's Hullabaloo in The Bosco at Hullabaloo
  2. Monsieur Montpellier: Entertainer Extraordinaire! @ Pleasance Dome in Joker Dome
  3. The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) @ Just the Tonic @ The Caves in Caves 1
  4. Bamboozlement! @ Gilded Balloon Teviot in Balcony
  5. Puppet Grinder Cabaret @ Assembly @ George Street in West Drawing Room
  6. Russell Kane's Fakespeare: The Tragickal Saveings of King Nigel @ Pleasance Courtyard in Cellar
  7. Randy's Postcards from Purgatory @ Underbelly in Iron Belly
  8. Bourgeois & Maurice - Social Work @ Pleasance Courtyard in Over The Road 2
They ranged from the mildly amusing or bland .... Monsieur Montpellier and Bamboozlement! Through to the strange ..... Abracadabra. \To the energetic ..... The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (which was a version of the very long running Reduced Shakespeare Company production)and then to the  genuinely funny.....Puppet Grinder Cabaret, and Randy's Postcards from Purgatory.
But the two star selections were
  • Russell Kane's Fakespeare: The Tragickal Saveings of King Nigel which was clever, funny and well performed by two talented comedians Russell Kane and Sadie Hasler.
and the winner
  • Bourgeois & Maurice - Social Work. Who almost defy description, but I guess Rocky Horror meets Cabaret (kinda) is the best I can describe it. They were Fabulous! Real Stars and talents ....
And if you want to know what they are like then go to their site and look at some photo's, or better still listen to some tracks .... go on, you know your curious!

"A Perfect Storm"

This blog has frequently pointed to the confluence of events that may well precipitate profound changes in the human races existence on the planet, and even life itself ..... we have predicted 2050 AD as the moment of the disasters but more and more evidence suggests that there will be a major problem around 2030 AD which we have discussed.

This week, the March predictions of UK chief scientist John Beddington, which described what he called a "A Perfect Storm" of food, energy and water shortages, unless the world changes its ways, arising as early as 2030 AD, have made the main news again, with some discussion on what to do.

This is all population driven, and yet even now we talk around this subject, because too many on the 'PC Left' consider it "Racist" to suggest that the Middle East, Asia and Africa need to curb their population growth now. This is doubly so, because so many of these left wingers have a vested employment interests in the work of charities, NGO's and Inter governmental agencies which promote more, not less children in the Third World, but with no attempt to curb the birth rates.


In the Middle East, no attempt has ever been made to cut birth rates of 10 or more children, especially amongst the poor and ill educated. There are several populations with very high population growth rates, such as those of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Egypt, or the United Arab Emirates. Its been pointed out that Iran is a notable exception to the regional trends.

In the sub continent, only Mrs Indira Gandhi ever tried any forceful birth control measures (and she was assassinated). Despite some evidence that birth rates are falling in India, it appears that she is still likely to overtake China in population levels by 2050 AD.

Pakistan is on a track of mass population growth (which should worry the UK), and is expected to go through the roof. In 1950 Pakistan had a population of about 40 million people. Since then it has more than tripled and stood at 136 million in 1995. But because the country not only has a very young population, but also still an extremely high fertility rate (much higher, for instance, than in Bangladesh or Thailand), its predicted that Pakistan's population will be about 357 million by 2050 AD.

The Chinese have practised a one child policy for decades (with some success), but recently they have relaxed it to two children to stabilise the population and to get rid of the male orientated population that the one child policy produced.

Sub Saharan Africa has no birth rate policies, and Nigeria is predicted to have grown from a population in 1950 of about 33 million to about 112 million now. The UN predicts that between 1995 and the year 2050 the country's population will probably triple again and reach almost 339 million ..... a ten fold increase in less than a century.

By 2050 AD a much bigger share of the world population will live in Africa South of the Sahara. In only some 50 years Western Africa, for instance, will have the same population as all of Europe. Eastern Africa will have many more people than all the countries of South America, the Caribbean and Oceania combined.

So we face an unprecedented population explosion, and no resources to feed them .... the US survivalists may be on to something.

Last of the Kennedy's

Senator Edward Kennedy died this week ..... not many in the UK mourned him, despite his being given an honorary knighthood by the current bunch of left wing cretins who run the UK.

In the US, he appears to have won over a certain section of the US population, despite the fact that he had more character flaws and cracks than an old plate. In the UK, he and his family are chiefly remembered as IRA supporters, who largely detested Britain.

His only real point of interest to this blog is that he is the last surviving male progeny of the father, Joseph P Kennedy, who was alleged to have made his fortune during the prohibition era, as well as being a profound Anti Semite and admirer of Adolf Hitler .........

Joseph P. Kennedy and descendants

Ironically, if an Italian descent family had show a similar background for their family fortune, they would likely have been under FBI surveillance and arrested .....

Nothing So Desperate As A Labour Politician

Labour MP Kerry McCarthy has been given the job of improving the party's use of social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook ahead of the next election.

She is being called the 'Twitter Tsar'

Twitter twitter little Tsar,
How I wonder who you are.
High and low the Spin you fling,
But not a vote will it bring in.

It's a sad time to be a marginal Labour MP, with less than a year to unemployment.

Global Warming? No Zombie Attack!

With the world threatened by a myriad of catastrophe's, one more threat, seems of little consequence, but you would be wrong .....

..... because its ZOMBIES!

Yes, Scientists have taken time off from determining the exact cause of humanities imminent demise, to calculate the exact speed with which a Zombie outbreak would conquer the world, or if it could be tackled.

Apparently they have concluded that if zombies actually existed (there's some doubt?), an attack by them would lead to the collapse of civilisation unless dealt with quickly and aggressively.

But there is supposedly a serious side to the work, because in some respects, a zombie "plague" resembles a lethal, rapidly spreading infection. The researchers say the exercise could help scientists model the spread of unfamiliar diseases through human populations....... Yeah, yeah!

Head chopping is the recommended order of the day!

A Little Bit Of History

This week, Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme was released from prison. Why is that even mildly interesting?

Well for people of a certain age, the names of Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme, Mary Theresa Brunner, Leslie Van Houten , Charles "Tex" Watson, Susan Atkins, Linda Kasabian, Bobby Beausoleil, and Patricia Krenwinkel will be forever synonymous with the "Manson Family" led by Charles Milles Manson.

In one brief period of time, this 'Hippie Gang' committed a string of murders, including of course the horrific killing of actress Sharon Tate. So notorious are Manson and his gang, that there is a web site dedicated solely to the crime, and what happened subsequently to the gang members, after they escaped death row when California briefly abandoned the death penalty.

Lynette "Squeaky" Fromme was not convicted of any of the original murders, but then went on to try and kill President Gerald Ford.

Charlie Manson himself will never be let out of prison, and that's a fact that no one can deny.

Russia and Islam

Russia's dealings with the Muslim world have often been schizophrenic, on one hand assisting the Nuclear ambitions of Iran, while on the other conducting internal wars with those of this faith within their borders. The killing of twenty people by a bomb, placed at a police station in Russia's southern republic of Ingushetia, illustrates that Russia, has as much to fear by stoking up the fundamentalist flames, as the West.

Russia is playing a risky game with the West and the Muslims, especially as they have a Muslim population of between 10-15% of their total, concentrated on their borders of the Muslim world.

It maybe that the Russians will shortly have to make a decision on whether they want to remain a European country, with the aim of achieving a true democracy, or if it intends to revisit the dark past of its history and act only to support attacks on the democratic world.

The Lost "Drugs War"

Occasionally this blog looks at the insidious nature of the drug scourge that the Western world has created for itself. This affliction, fuelled entirely by a couple of feckless generations who use drugs to a value of $380 billion a year, primarily from the retail drug sales.

This drug using group are estimated to be around 4% of the worlds population but generate a trade that brings much sorrow and crime to the world.

The invasive nature of this drug trade was starkly illustrated when a story came out that showed that 95% of dollar bills in Washington DC, bear traces of the illegal drug cocaine. This figure for the US capital is up 20% for the last two years.

Other countries where notes were tested were Canada, Brazil, China and Japan. China had the lowest rates, with only 12% of its bills contaminated, other big US cities such as Baltimore, Boston and Detroit had the highest average cocaine levels in the US on their dollar bills. In the US the cleanest bills were collected from Salt Lake City, home of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, better known as the Mormons.

Europe has not been spared these sort of results, and in fact as long ago as 2003, in Germany, nine out of 10 banknotes showed clearly measurable amounts of cocaine according to the Institute for Biomedical and Pharmaceutical Research in Nuremberg. The same tests run looking for concentrations of cocaine on Spanish euro notes, found that they were almost a hundred times that of the levels recorded in Germany.

The only balance to this is that Bank notes can pick up traces of cocaine directly from users snorting it through rolled up bills, or when cash is stacked together, and its assumed that the latter is the main cause of the high levels of the drug traces.

Police Cells Offer Room Service

If ever a story thoroughly told its own tale, its the news that the Devon and Cornwall Police are currently running a 'service questionnaire' for 'patrons' of its police cells.

Detainees are asked 41 questions about food, reading material, cleanliness and the temperature of the cells. Well we wouldn't want the little darlings who inhabit these cells to get less than silver service would we?

This questionnaire is being issued at the same time as stories about Burglars having attacked an 88-year-old Devon woman, ransacking her home and leaving her lying on the floor with a broken hip ....

Hundreds of old people are attacked by scum, or die in the UK of cold or hunger every year, but, drunks, thieves, gang members and various unpleasant people who fill these police cells every weekend, get decent meals, books, and warm cells.

Welcome to broken values Britain!

Minorities Persecuted in Sub Continent

This Blog keeps an interest in the ongoing persecution of the diminishing Christian populations of the Middle East and Asia because the UK press show such little interest in these genocides. The UK is particularly supine when it comes to protecting the last pockets of a Christian world that is fast disappearing.

So once again we highlight a news story from Pakistan, where its tiny Christian minority, are under attack again, by radical Muslims, and across the border in India, a US congressional body has put India on a list of countries which have failed to protect its religious minorities adequately.

In particular, the report highlights the anti-Christian attacks in Orissa in 2008 ..... an event that this blog publicised at the time.

Mass Unemployment Haunts New Labour

Recently I blogged on the fact that the "Labour Isn't Working" poster is being brushed off for possible use in the next election. Well, recent news suggests that this rather jokey idea may have legs, because this week came the news that, unemployment numbers increased by 220,000 to 2,435,000 in the three months to June, taking the jobless rate to 7.8% in the UK, its highest level since 1995.

It's now heading back to the levels of previous 'recessions', and is predicted to approach 3 million early next year. This surely lends the lie to the idea that we have banished "Boom and Bust" economics in the UK.

Graph of unemployment

No Room For The Dead

Statistics suggest that 1 in 18 people in Cairo now live in the City of the Dead, using catacombs and monuments as housing.

The reason? The Egyptian population, like much of the Arab world, has exploded over the last 60 years. Egypt for instance has a current population of 77 million, but had only 10 million in 1900, and still only 20 million in 1950. At current rates of growth, its expected to be about 117 million by 2050 AD, which is unsustainable, and means that Egypt has no way of providing potable water, food, housing, or creating enough jobs for this expected population.

So people are living in the tombs of medieval Egyptian 'notables', such as as the family mausoleum of Muhammad Ali, the founder of modern day Egypt, and his sons.

According to Dr Ibrahim El-Issawy, an economist for a government advisory body, The Institute of National Planning "It's a desperate situation for these people - but it is not only in the City of the Dead, there are tens of slums… they are everywhere around Egypt. They are crying out for 'basic' needs; good public education, health services, employment opportunities. They are not there," he added. "Except for the privileged few."

Added to the issues of jobs, housing and water, there are the added social problems these bring such as the fact that many young people can't afford a family. In the city of Cairo, the average age of marriage has jumped to 31 and this has led to mass sexual attacks on young women by males who have little chance of getting a wife.

The only option the young of Egypt have is the emigrate, but they don't want to go to other Muslim countries, because they are as bad or worse than Egypt, no they all want to emigrate to Non Muslim countries (The US or EU), legally or illegally, and that's why we should all be concerned about squatters in the Tombs of Old Cairo.

When In Rome ....

Still in Rome, there have been some interesting archaeological discoveries in the Roman World recently and I thought I might round them up.

The Villa where the Roman Emperor Vespasian was born has been uncovered. The ruins were found in the Roman city of Falacrine, about 80 miles (130km) north-east of Rome and stretches over 14,000 sq m (16,750 sq yards) and seems to have been the home of the Flavians. Vespasian was maybe most famous for crushing the Jews in 66 AD, and being the general who led the invasion of Britain in 43 AD. He also built the Colosseum.

The statue head of Faustina the Elder, wife of Emperor Antoninus Pius has been uncovered in the Roman town of Sagalassos (in Modern Turkey), this is the same site where where the statue head of Emperor Hadrian was uncovered a couple of years ago, and promises some more brilliant finds in the next few years.

The Tomb of General Marcus Nonius Macrinus (the basis for the character Maximus Decimus Meridius in the film Gladiator) has been uncovered .... there aren't actually that many similarities but General Macrinus was a favourite of Emperor Marcus Aurelius, helping him achieve major victories in Europe.

And finally, for some reasons archaeologists have often under estimated the sheer scale of the Roman Empires influence beyond its borders (think British Empire or Modern US and Russian 'spheres of influnece'), either that or Scottish romantics really believed the guff that the Picts were totally immune from the Romans power.

The truth is that once the Romans beat the Caledonians at Mons Graupus, they found out that they were near the north of an island (they had thought Britain was part of the continent), and lost interest in further warfare as there was nothing to steal in the impoverished north of Scotland. Tacitus mentions the Roman fleet conquering the Orcades and knowledge of Thule.

In any event, there has been a lot of evidence that Scotland, even the far north, was much under Roman influence, and another dig at Birnie, near Elgin, is showing this. Earlier finds such as the coins found on Uist in the Western Isles show how far Roman traders and military force could stretch.

All Roads Lead Where?

A strange story this.

The Vatican is apparently trying to reaffirm Papal Authority over US Nuns who have become rather lax in their belief systems ..... or at least from a conservative Vatican point of view. This attempt is apparently meeting with some resistance from ladies who don't like the idea of male authority.

Now forgive me for laughing, but isn't this just the problem? After all these women are meant to be serving as Holy Nuns, not as Catholic social workers, and wouldn't the Roman Catholic Church collapse if there wasn't any acknowledgement of overarching Papal Authority? After all they are not Episcopalians or in the Church of England, where everyone believes what they want, does what they want, anyway they want.

These Nuns have become so infected with US feminism that one of them, Sister Mary Mackay is quoted as saying "The culture encourages everyone to be very tolerant and open-minded," she said. "To imagine that a dictum sent by somebody we don't know, who lives very far away would take hold in this culture, to imagine that, is really a stretch."

That person she 'doesn't know', who lives 'very far away' is called "His Holiness, the Bishop of Rome, Pope Benedict XVI", who last time I checked, was still head of the entire Roman Catholic Church.

Now I don't know what sort of religious teaching Sister Mary got, but I am pretty damn sure that it involved a short mention of Popes, and very certainly included a vow of obedience to his authority, even if he is "very far away", and Sister Mary "doesn't know him".

The report states that many nuns believe the investigation is intended to rein them in, while others warn that a 'male hierarchy' wants to regain control of them as 'women' and as a 'free workforce'. Ahh, US Feminism in full flow amongst the Nuns ..... They are not a 'free workforce', they are Roman Catholic Nuns, under vows of obedience, next they will want women priests, to be able to get married, and for the Church to be run by a female Pope!

All sounds very familiar, but the Vatican in Rome, isn't the Arch Bishopric of Canterbury, and a previous attempt by US Nuns to refuse to obey the Papal Authority, resulted in the expulsion of a number of Nuns who are now lay workers in the the 'Immaculate Heart', a community of former nuns, who had to leave the Church 40 years ago, because they refused to obey the Vatican teachings.

I shall watch this story with interest .... is the Catholic Church still able to withstand the winds of PC Feminism, or is it doomed to decay like the Episcopalian church?

The Copts of Egypt

The Copts of Egypt are struggling after the recent mass culling of their pigs in Alexandria and Cairo, under the guise of "Public Health" measures. The Copts resisted, but this is a one party dictator state, where 'martial law' has been in force for over 30 yrs, and the Copts have no political clout in the US, so they were quickly beaten down.

The killing was carried out in a barbaric manner, and was certainly an attack on the Christians of Egypt. As usual the West said nothing at a measure that will certainly impoverish many, and bring health risks to millions. Both the 'World Society for the Protection of Animals' and the World Health Organization, have pointed out that culling will be "ineffective" in protecting people against swine flu, because it is not passed from pigs to humans. So the excuse of "Public Health" is a thin lie, to hurt the Christians.

For the pig owners, many of whom are 'zabaleen' (rubbish collectors), who mainly come from the Coptic Christian minority, the cull has been devastating. The Pigs were often their only income and used the pigs to recycle organic wastes and then sold them for meat. With this livelihood gone, many are very desperate and receive no help, and no support, from Western charities such as Christian Aid, who seem to prefer to support Muslims or Hindus rather than the beleaguered Christians of the Middle East or Asia.

Muslim Demographics & Other Guesswork

The seven-and-a-half minute video "Muslim Demographics" is proving a big hit on YouTube and now the chattering classes, led by the BBC, are attacking its content. The video purports to show that much of Europe will be subjected to 'Islamification' within thirty years. Obviously this is a bit like using current birth and immigration trends, to predict that the United States will be a Latino state within the same period, a question I examined last year.

These kinds of prediction are notoriously unreliable, because they only assume that everything remains unchanged, so political changes e.g. immigration clamp downs, or changes in birth rates are not factored in to the predictions. However, if they contain accurate data, and nothing changes, then they are as accurate as any other predictions, and if politicians ignore them i.e. make no changes, then the predictions could prove to be an accurate portrayal of the future.

Why so many European politicians are prepared to take such a massive gamble on the very culture and future of their countries, without asking the general public, is a mystery to many of their populations, particularly as it fuels the political groups of the far right and far left. These groups, such as those who fought in Birmingham on Saturday, are the front line of tomorrows race, religion and cultural battles driven by mass immigration.

Without a doubt, the video is propaganda, and therefore uses extreme cases to make its point, but to deny the general trend of large scale Muslim immigration into Europe, and then ignore the obvious conclusions of the trend continuing, is both stupid and dangerous.

Ruskies Being Naughty Boyz?

A "massively co-ordinated" attack on websites including Google, Facebook and Twitter was directed at one individual, it has been confirmed, according to this BBC report .... apparently it was an attack on a pro-Georgian blogger called Cyxymu, and all sites holding his accounts.

The attack brought down or downgraded the service on many of the sites, and showed how fragile many systems such as Twitter and Facebook are.

Suspicions are strong that this large scale attack was sanctioned by Russian security services, if only because the of the resources required. Other sites such as Live Journal, where Cyxymu has a blog, were also targeted in the attack on Thursday this week.

It's certainly no coincidence that this week was also the anniversary of the Russian invasion of Georgia and continued occupation of Georgian territory.

Aesops Fables

Aesops Fables included the tale of The Crow and the Pitcher in which a Crow, half-dead with thirst, came upon a Pitcher which had once been full of water; but when the Crow put its beak into the mouth of the Pitcher he found that only very little water was left in it, and that he could not reach far enough down to get at it.

Then a thought came to him, and he took a pebble and dropped it into the Pitcher. Then he took another pebble and dropped it into the Pitcher and he repeated this trick until the water level rose within reach and he slaked his thirst and saved his life.

Well, scientists have found that there may be a basis in truth in this fable, because a rook has been seen to do precisely that same trick when faced with a similar situation .... "The rooks have to put multiple stones in the tube until the worm floats to the top" said Dr Nathan Emery. The four birds did just that. Two, called Cook and Fry, raised the water-level enough to grab the floating feast the very first time that they were presented with the test, while the other two Connelly and Monroe, were successful on their second attempt.

Animal intelligence never ceases to surprise us. especially tool and problem solving amongst birds.

Obama and the "Race Question"

President Obama has recently fallen into the race trap, when he remarked on the arrest of a black professor for verbally abusing the police after they asked for his ID, that there was a "long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately".

Ooops, from a man who has had a favoured background, including being a fully trained lawyer, this was dumb.

It's an indisputable fact that in the US (like most other countries), crime rates amongst Black and Latino communities is many times higher than amongst other ethnic groups in that country. It's also a fact that larger proportions of the males of both these groups have criminal records, therefore "disproportionately', can just mean 'correctly targeted' ....... A stupid mistake by the President, and one that could haunt him in years to come.

The story is running big time in the US, as it has forced Obama to have to call everyone in 'for a beer' to try and calm things down. The President has his critics, many of them very vocal, such as the strange outbursts from James DManning (ironically a convicted burglar), so to raise the spectre of racial politics coming from the White House (Black house?) is to risk confirming the predictions of his opponents.

"Corrective" Rape

The story about South Africa as rape central, continues to strangely attract the BBC ...... after the follow up on the repentant rapist, they are discussing the phenomena of raping lesbians (ahh, now I understand why the 'wimmin' of the BBC are interested), to 'sort them out'.

Known colloquially as "corrective rape", its another penis led African male story, in which just one forced entry by a male is meant to 'cure' lesbians.

It's almost impossible to think of anything to say about a group that thinks like this.

Long Legged Mack Daddy

This was posted on the Burning Toast blog site as Well, Are We? ...... I am almost speechless, which is more than can be said about the broadcaster.

Sadly that blog is dead now .... so here's the video on you tube.

The speaker gets more and more worked up as his larynx gets warmer, and then starts singing his insults. Be warned that US freedom of speech is much stronger than that in the UK, so be warned again that he doesn't worry about the language or content of his insults.

Here's the object of his ire ....

A Long Legged Mack Daddy?

Trouble In 'The Peoples Republic'

The 'Peoples Republic of Scouseland' has been going through a few internal problems recently. After somewhat ironically being name "European City Of Culture", things have gone a little down hill.

First there was the "Curran Affair", where Alex Curran, the wife of Liverpool footballer Steven Gerrard (yes in the UK, wives of footballers are now classed as 'celebrities', who keep their own surnames), complained about how rough Liverpool was, and how she never went there anymore (presumably she meant because of all the 'chavs and scallys' ...... easily identified by wearing tracksuits for every occasion, cigarettes hanging from lips, pushing baby buggies carrying little 'steviegee' or 'waynetta', very bad perms and talking in 'klingon' ). She said that "To be honest it's rough. Everywhere new that opens attracts the wrong type of people. It's not nice, so I haven't bothered to go out."

This was after a string of upsetting events, such as having the family mansion targeted by burglars last year (Half the Liverpool team have had their houses robbed by the local scallys, in a campaign presumably led by an Evertonian burglar), Mrs Gerrard (aka Alex Curran) was at home when it happened and police said she was left 'shaken but wasn't hurt'.

Then her husband had to defend himself, before he was attacked, by punching lumps out of a man in a Southport bar (Southport is where Scouse footballers live). Gerrard spent a night in the cells, before eventually being found not guilty in a Liverpool court (If I punched a man because I thought he might attack me, then I would go to prison - ask farmer Tony Martin, although a more recent case an inquest defended a man who attacked a burglar who held a knife to his throat.... even the UK courts recognise that as provocative.)

Ms Curran is herself no stranger to police interviews, as she was questioned about an alleged assault in a Liverpool restaurant in 2006 but no charges were preferred.

Needless to say the 'local officials' have retaliated in typical style .... Police and council chiefs have said that 'Liverpool is getting safer', and is 'one of the top four UK city destinations'. The locals were more circumspect, with some agreeing that it was rough, but others saying that it was Ms Curran who was the "wrong sort".

And there the story might have ended as far as I was concerned (although the 'red top press' are all over her for the remarks, and she will be back peddling as fast as she can, like anyone who 'attacks' the people of the 'Peoples Republic'), but then came the second event.

Kenny Dalglish, former Liverpool player, manager and local legend woke up to find that someone had left a bomb, in the form of a live hand grenade, outside his Southport Mansion. It's not clear if it was aimed at him, or his house was just considered a convenient place by locals in which to store a bomb.

Now thats what I call a rough area Alex!
