Misleading headlines of our time

Like this one at Livingstone's website:

"New scheme launched to tackle anti-social behaviour with dogs".

Stowing away my liberal (Small 'l'. Very very small 'l') hat just briefly, the thought of mobile phone bellowers, pavement hogs and the 1,0001 varieties of oaf in these parts being hunted down by Rhodesian Ridgebacks did have a certain appeal, but it turns out one that is not what is planned.

Hey, and indeed, ho.

When I lived in Africa the guy next door had 2 beautiful Ridgebacks roaming loose in his garden. Safest house in town as none of the natives would come anywhere near it. I got the spillover security from the menacing barking whenever any local native wandered by.

Almost as good as the BBC News webpage article on the Heathrow protesters on the roof at Parliament, which (briefly) said something like "Protesters climbed onto the roof and began throwing down paper airplanes, and were joined by the police."

Wish I'd got a screencap of it...

1,0001? The new maths?

S. Hawkinge

PS Why not unleash moskitos on 'em?
That'd upset the "Kids Komissioner" a treat. (Did you know he lives in 99% white Salisbury (Wilts, not Rho)? Surely that shd be 'Ackney?)
