Icarus [sports drug doping]

imdb: tt6333060 is about Grigory Rodchenkovand and the doping of the Russian olympics team who still to this day often drop out of events due to testing.   The George Orwell extracts is brilliant at summing up sport and drugs.

Enjoy your druggies performing sport.today.  It is not real.

Better than fiction is the truth.

5/5 bananas

Scottish nationalism and the delayed american television series funded by the uk lottery and suppressed by all the uk broadcasters

skirts and dresses for all

American tv decided to do a book (my blog) with scottish people in. Some years ago** and i thought it was natural content for british television although why they did not do it is a question to ask the bbc and other local broadcasters who seemed to not know of it too.

How wrong i was – amazon got it and referendums (my blog) for Scotland’s independence made it a no for free-view . Only in 2017 was it being broadcast to the weak and feeble minded people with ‘free’* television .

I have never seen this braveheart version 2 but i find the timing interesting for i wonder how long it has been stored by the broadcaster who was kept being told despite it being fiction by our lords and masters to suppress it for reasons best known to themselves

The zoo’s dvr decided to not record the first episode also for reasons best known to it self** and I caught up with the first – Ronald D Moore (my blog) de-femaled it well and i was quite happy to consider not womens fiction but an interesting concept. However with no second season it appears that Westminster has derailed it as a series. despite being over 5 books being written and published – which puts a certain  tv writer (my blog) to shame.

Latter episodes are quite harrowing and make it hard viewing

The music is good by an composer i regard.

.Perhaps the tax credit for television production is selective as to the will and views of the english civil servants after all and not all ‘creative’ jobs are valued as others despite the lottery funding it (my blog).

I shall let you mull on the matter.

Overall it is worth a see with 5/5 bananas but its funding and broadcast shenanigans make it a curious beast – why is it on now rather than several years ago.

*which costs £ 147 and time wasted for adverts **2014 – even i was late on this one despite being a battlestar producer (my blog) ** never happens 99% of the time – i blame sabotage by ofcom and so gchq know i watched it.

Governments not paying there pfi bills

Jimmy and Tony

Carillion is an outsourcer who is not being paid by governments and when the money stops people who profited both ways like Tony to your right mean we will all probably be paying twice while Comrade Blair laughs at you.

That is not to say that there are no problems with pfi’s the London Underground scheme collapsed, schools in scotland had blown over walls* and since most of the deals are commercial the details are very much kept between governments and the outsource firms who have old government chums like lord reid (left) who worked at g4s who fucked up the security for the london Olympics (my blog) and non delivered and is a chum of Tony Blair .

It appears or being told the saudis are not paying there bills but whether that is correct or not is a matter of trust after all when Tony and Reid have both sold and consumed the item perhaps its time that these pfi contracts have served them well and there failure is assured and as a long term means of doing stuff is not there problem any more.

*wolf and three pigs (my blog) had nothing to do with it – joke

The delirium brief,Charles Stross

citizen may the children’s entertainer

isbn:9780356508283 is another book from a series that kind of began here (my blog atrocity archives) so do not read this book if you have no idea who Cassie is (my blog)

However bananas is up to date and vaguely remembers who Cassie is along with the usual regulars. so if your still reading this well done.

Set in the usual places this is an interesting book and has a current political edge with talk of austerity and how lean should public services be.

With parallel’s to stuff going on i am not sure this will age well but i liked it

3/5 bananas long – for long term readers only.



asian anti corruption television shows

Being an ape i once read about a tv drama from china about corruption which was oddly tolerated by the single party political class in China and it was deemed a hit by locals who only see what the communist party think best.

Professor here in the zoo was telling us apes of South Korean series called stranger (imdb: tt6461346) which he only knew was from there by the local cars driven.

Its good since i do not usually like korean television (my blog) that much suffering from pretty people and an odd reality this has a production quality that means it has non of those faults if they are pretty then i did not notice it.

A future corruption might well be the winter Olympics (my blog) in south Korea happening 2018 after all these sporty types are famous for it.

Stranger is on netflix (my blog)

the rise of the outsiders, s richards

citizen Nigel

isbn: 9781786492012 is an attempt to explain the Trumps, (my blog)  Farages, and populists worldwide (my blog) rather than middle of the road left and right parties which means he as a journalist can probably see both in an afternoon rather than take an team of people to contact*.

This bbc journalist who writes this seems displeased that the world changed and his politics role is playing second fiddle to economics (my blog) even though Nixon who changed the game was a politician – best not mention that eh?.

This journalist seems to be displeased that an alternative view is out there rather than he covering just two competing leaders.  Mind you nuance is something he might not get.

I glazed over after getting his main point early on and while he does use the odd word like statist occasionally. Another ‘problem’ is the powerless of the media apparently which sounds as if his wet dream two party means those two leaders of the main parties control what is output**.   Richards wants it all but oddly likes the status quo so how dare you vote Trump, Varoufakis,(my blog) and Nigel.

Nixon an important figure in this

Clintons loss of the presidency election appears to be the reason this book was written and perhaps she is the worst example of wishing to obtain office over talent – something seems lost on the author and the msm in general..

Anyhow what do i know.

*more money for him  if less journalists are needed. **multi channel tv is apparently not up to the job.

If only Greece only had a female prime minister

street urchins

Bananas reads that the eu has apparently softened it’s demands for the uk to leave the eu after reading between the lines that Comrade May (my blog) could be deposed.

So it got me thinking on Greece (my blog) perhaps if female leaders get better deals than male ones that could be deemed as sexism ?

I wonder what greece would have looked like now ?

Think on it.

Stupid black men (a homage to film maker Michael Moore)

I like you may have reading (not here) that the world health organisation or ‘who’ appointed dictator for life in Zimbabwe as ambassador for health.  El presidenre has to go elsewhere for his health services and has a life span three times that of the average zimbabwean.

.zw – Its a weird place (my blog) and i read while it might have a medical system in name but apparently getting paid and medicine are in short supply – no wonder Mugabe does not use it.

This decision was made by Dr Tedros who is the first african to run who, it appears he is sexist as mrs Mugabe should also be the ambassador how dare he not make her a health ambassador as well after all her talents are well noted as a lady torturer (my blog).

If having a health service in name only is deemed exceptional then clearly there is not much difference between the stupid white men who believe in private health care and the black ones**.

Perhaps its something Mr Moore can explain as to why private health is better – you know the one.

Mind you it is like Saudi Arabia having a conference on womens rights, and being chair of human rights at the un, and yes those two things actually happened.

At least mr and mrs mugabe can afford* private health care and that’s got to be progress right ?

*probably paid by China (my blog) ** mr moore is a left wing film maker in america
