There are a few of these signs at Alvecote along the towpath. I only have one question:- Hundreds of dogs every year crap on the towpath and their owners don’t pick up, why are CRT picking on the odd chap or chapess who would rather pee in the hedge than piss in their pants (there are no toilets and when you have to go, you have to go).

I heard a good one today from Ibrahim, a Moslem, in Palestine. His family are well.
The Hijab is to protect women and also men.
“Men! From what”, I asked.
“From seeing a woman’s body”, he said.
Well I am glad he made that point I can sleep now.

Edit Hurrah the link to this story has been restored http://jottify.com/works/a-ballpoint-pen-the-autobiography-of/
The link to my short story is defunct at this time. You can read the story at this place, but you cannot download it, Sorry!
You can trust a politician every time he opens his mouth, to tell the people what they really want, to be telling a lie. A politicians primary purpose is self first. If he is not getting something out of it now, he will!
The only known decent man in the house is Dennis Skinner, who takes the average wage of his constituents from his Parliamentry salary and donates the rest to charity, Jolly decent chap.
I see another Kinnock is joining the fold. Son of bald ginger twat and his sponging missus.
Question: How will this son of privilege ever understand the people he wants to represent. Answer: he never will he doesn’t want to represent them he just wants the money!
The Kinnocks are a family of benefit scroungers. Kinnock senior Is a failed party leader. His wife has taken more out of the EU purse than her husband (millions) and the son has been on the band wagon since birth!
Keep it in the family cant go wrong!
This morning I walked the dog. I set off before lunch. At Fradley lock I met John and Louise from nb PLODDIN’ ALONG. They locked me through. Very pleasant to meet them. I made my way to Wittington where I moored just before Whittington Bridge. I didn't realise it was only 2.30 or I would have gone on to Hopwas or Fazely. Never mind tomorrow I will stop at Avelcote and that should set me up for somewhere around about Grendon for Monday.

Of course there is a very good reason to stop young girls from hugging young boys. Can you guess what it is?

I thought my ash pan door was feeling a bit 'loose', on further inspection I found there wasn't a scrap of rope in it (this is very odd because I replaced the rope when Alex did my chimney last summer). No wonder I was having trouble controlling the fire. Luckily I had a spare piece which just slotted straight in place with a 1/4 inch to spare.

…..I moored in Barton Turns Marina. Now there's as surprise. I thought to take advantage of an 'electric' mooring to do my washing and of course to socialise with friends Christine and Richie Adams. Tempted to stay another day but need to be in Atherston Wednesday.

This evening I moored at Horninglow Burton on Trent. Now why I came here is a mystery to me. I set out for a short hop to Alrewas. My thinking was that I could catch a bus to the National Memorial Arboretum. But when I arrived in Alrewas I just kept going and here I am.

The EU is considering banning Islamaphobia. Not one of their best plans. In fact not a good plan at all. Stopping people from having and voicing an opinion on Islam will allow Islam to do as they please without recourse to any checks and balances.
I fail to see why, if Islam is so good, that the 50 or so Islamic Republics around the world are so fucked up. They are the most repressed people in the world, live in conditions we would never tolerate and are subject to corporal and capital punishment on a whim.
If People want an Islamic way of life it is there for the taking all they have to do is relocate to an Islamic Republic, but they wont because the life in IRs is shit! People like Anjem Choudary would just be an ordinary little nobody were he in an IR. The freedom of speech which he exercises here, whilst renouncing free speech for Moslems, would be barred to him elsewhere.
Ban Islamaphobia? Well the easiest way to do that is to ban Islam. No Islam, no Islamaphobia!
