    i can't help feeling that we are being taken for mugs
    We are. And the lentil chomping, road blocking, eco twats are helping either.

    We don't have a lot of gas in our north sea fields alas. They are all pretty much drained.
    Plenty oil but not really the type that our refineries can use so it's sold abroad.

    “Nothing discloses real character like the use of power. It is easy for the weak to be gentle. Most people can bear adversity. But if you wish to know what a man really is, give him power. This is the supreme test. It is the glory of Lincoln that, having almost absolute power, he never abused it, except on the side of mercy.”

    “You see these dictators on their pedestals, surrounded by the bayonets of their soldiers and the truncheons of their police ... yet in their hearts there is unspoken fear. They are afraid of words and thoughts: words spoken abroad, thoughts stirring at home -- all the more powerful because forbidden -- terrify them. A little mouse of thought appears in the room, and even the mightiest potentates are thrown into panic.”

    There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself. -- Johann Sebastian Bach.

    “There's a war out there, old friend. A world war. And it's not about who's got the most bullets. It's about who controls the information. What we see and hear, how we work, what we think... it's all about the information!”

    A valve amp system may cost less than 50p a night to run but it dosen't take into consideration the cost of a decent bottle of single malt which works out to be more than 50p whilst listening to Jazz on cold/wet evenings.
