God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan

autumn statement
-noun
an admission of failure, a concession that you are not numerate at an adult level, a cry for help in understanding your gas bill, let alone the economy of the country.

nepotism
-noun
the act of giving someone a job or position because they went to the same school as you, they are a member of your Gentlemen's Club, or their daddy is particularly rich and is a prominent party donor. Often leads to screamingly incompetent people being in positions of power and responsibility.
"I don't mean to sound bitter, cynical or cruel; but I am, so that's how it comes out." ~ Bill Hicks.
"To argue with a person who has renounced reason is like administering medicine to the dead." ~ Thomas Paine.
"One should not believe everything one reads on the internet." ~ Abraham Lincoln.
"If you're making a political point wearing a balaclava, you're a c***. It was true for the IRA and it's true now." ~ daftbeaker.

Why does the b*****d still look so smug? I am really tempted to wait outside Downing Street with at least a rotten egg or two...it would be worth getting arrested for.
