Shocking news - the Nazis planned to invade Britain wearing British uniforms! That's cheating! Not spies, I mean. Spies are allowed to do that, that's fair. But normal soldiers! That would have been the biggest bit of cheating since they legalized not wearing bright red uniforms so the enemy can see you! War is war and rules are rules. I wonder what other sort of dastardly tricks they had up their sleeves? Pretending to surrender and than ah-ha, only kidding, bang bang you're dead? It's a serious business, war. If people don't play by the rules someone could get hurt.
Playing by the rules means stuff like the glamourous Nazi ballerina spy who caused the allies to fail to take Norway from Germany. The BBC was so taken with the story that they reported it twice yesterday. That's fair enough, the spy thing, I mean, not the reporting it twice, that's how the whole spy thing works, it's part of the whole war thing. You have to wonder, though, the Nazi ballerina deal - one imagines a lot of goosestepping.
I could have sworn that earlier yesterday the story about the murdered MI6 worker said that his uncle said that he was very good at his job and he never talked about it, which obviously raises eyebrows, but now it appeared to say that he said he was very talented, not very good at his job. Perhaps it always did, maybe I read it wrong. But what got my interest was the mention of his mobile phone and sim cards being laid out in a ritualistic manner. What sort of manner is that? Is that something the Mafia do or something? Or is black magic keeping up with the times? I wouldn't have thought there were enough of them to make a pentagram or anything. If you know how a mobile phone and sim cards could be laid out in a ritualistic manner do let me know.
Oh ruddy heck. I really should write things down! I was confident that I had three things to write about earlier, that I'd seen and marked, but when I went to it I couldn't see it. I don't think it was those, or not mostly, at least. I think it was stronger stuff. Oh well - maybe one day I'll learn, and you'll never hear me say that I really must write things down again - maybe. but fortunately we have a last minute saviour. Not satisfied with interfering with signs, the British government has now said that they've got the English councils to make it easier for people to have street parties. I'm glad I live in Scotland, where this goverment can't interfere with stuff like that. The Tories have a fetish about street parties, they think if people have to fill in less forms they'll all want to have street parties to say "we love the queen and the empire" like they did in the olden days, but I don't think the English are that different from us, I don't think they'll want to go to street parties with all the people they live near. They might as well be making it easier for people to sleep in Anderson shelters at night.
This should have appeared yesterday - but publication fail!
that's all from me for now
see you around
