Is any more proof needed that John Kerry is a twat. He is certain to be the next president of the United States of America. We have, in Britain, a labour politician who is on record stating that she wanted to see 'a limpet mine put on every pumping station.’ She was referring to the pumping stations in the Somerset levels and was head of the Environment Agency at the time, responsible for the policies that have led to the appalling flooding in Somerset, see http://www.spectator.co.uk/fea... If that had been said by a person with olive skin and a foreign accent they would have 'disappeared' as a potential terrorist. These people are eco-terrorists, nothing more. We also have a member of the Green Party calling for everyone in a government position who doesn't believe in AGW to be removed, the sort of political purgess that the Communists favored; clearly living up to the 'Water Mellon' name.

Something I'd like to share with the group (sorry, bad sense of humour) I stopped using PayPal a few years ago. I forgot to renew the card it was associated when it expired. When I tried to update the details PayPal had blocked the account and refused to re-active unless I provided photographic ID. What, pray tell, do PayPal want or need with photographic ID? So, I, being the level headed and rational individual I am, smelled a huge fetid rat and stopped using their 'services.' With regards this sorry tale, who made PayPal a member of the board, least of all the director of finance? It could be they have a requirement under money laundering regulations, transfer of over $1000 dollars was once the limit for notification of suspicious activity. However, that said, I much prefer to infer nefarious purpose on PayPals part.

The degree of technical confidence is inversely proportional to the level of management.
