Sadly, it is time once again for this blog to go quiet for a week or two. Blobfish is otherwise engaged so I'm putting my special collector's edition action figurine of ace Northern Rock CEO Adam J. Applegarth on guard duty in Blobfish's place
and it's going to be kind of interesting to see if Adam and his chums at NR manage to wangle more in loans and guarantees out of HM Treasury than was actually at risk in the way of depositors' money when all this nonsense started...
Let me see, they're up to £16,000,0000,000 already and they're borrowing £3,000,000,0000 a week and the amount of money on deposit when the crisis started was reported as being about £24,000,000,000. So, what's that? Two, three weeks to go?
but, hey, the BBC isn't talking very much about Northern Rock these days so everything must be peachy
and in case anyone missed it, here's a handy video analysis (ripped from Wolfie's blog) of the fundamental causes of that credit crisis which not many people seem to be talking about anymore and which therefore has presumably gone away...
And sadly, it's unlikely that I will be able to participate in and report on Islamo-Fascism awareness week, in particular the march scheduled for this coming Friday. There's nothing I would enjoy more than spending the day demonstrating my solidarity with people who believe that the Western World is just a short step away from COMPLETE!! and UTTER!! Muslim domination.
Maybe after the march we could have all gone off hunting for Snarks and fighting Jabberwockies as well
It could have been fun
The Chimes of Freedom blog has been keeping an eye on the planned Islamo-Fascism march and posting some interesting links lately, so it's worth having peek there to see what's going on in the exciting world Islamic Hatred in the run up to this week's festivities
Other links worth clicking onto in the interim include; Lord Patel (though his extensive and handsomely remunerated staff appear to be on some kind of wildcat strike at the moment), LWTC247 and its detailed, and I mean detailed, coverage of the Jean Charles de Menezes court case...
...then there's the ever accurate, ever reliable Daily Mash and, of course, Conspiraloon™ Central - they know what's really going on (wink wink)
