Very scary piece on eugenics in The States from the 1930's through to the 1970s. The popularity of the eugenics movement made me realise that the fight against Hitler's Nazism wasn't quite as simple as 'good versus evil'.

So here we have a venture using the internet to drive wages down because there are so many people desperate for extra money in this economic climate - and I am supposed to think this is a good thing?

I suppose I should just consider myself lucky I don't work for one of the 'traditional lawn care services' mentioned in the article.

I find some aspects of the crowdsourcing concept quite exciting (eg crowd funding, micro-financing) but I am seeing more and more applications that are just exploiting the fact that there a lot of people desperate for work and all just cutting each others throats by working for peanuts.

These kind of applications are unsustainable in the mid to long term and really are a race to the bottom, in my opinion.

Now that is one far sighted plan and will no doubt help ensure the decline of the West continues apace...

But what a bunch of pinko commies eh? Practically giving stuff like that to any old scrounger, whether or not they should actually be able to afford it, like I can...

My blog post about fishing a still water - something I rarely do. So I enlisted the help of local angler Ian Gould who right on cue caught a monster Rainbow Trout....

New Statesman blog post that says just about all that needs to be said about David Cameron's YouTurn on social media - and twitter in particular.

Good analysis of some of the UK riot sentences handed out. Many seem out of all proportion - surely they will appeal?
