The Surreal World of Alistair Dali

Much better bloggers than me are tearing into the budget quite admirably but unfortunately I do not have the time today to add to the carcass tearing.

With all these budgets, the nasty stuff is in the detail and I heard George Osborne pick up an increase on NI. Once again, the "stealth tax" is used with vigour. From what I understand, the announcement means that the employee’s NI rate will rise from 11% to 11.5% and the employer's NI rate from 12.8% to 13.3%.

The thing that angered me the most was that once again, they have not bothered to cut the unaffordable public sector. It's madness. It's treasonable.

Comedy spot on Guido's uber-blog

I think Alice Miles deserves some sort of award for this article.

Perhaps Andrew Marr could give her one?

Auf Wiedersehen, Dolly

Oh no, looks like the Sunday online papers and blogs are going to be interesting reading tomorrow about the emails that Guido has given away revealing McBride attempting a Tory personal smear campaign through Dolly's Labourlost shite.

Oh, and by the way Derek, as you commented on my site a few weeks ago, it's not sour grapes: I genuinely like having you around the blogosphere because I cannot think of a single entity (except for The Prime Mentalist) that provides such great ammunition for entertainment.

G20 "riots" stage managed?

This image and others like it during the G20 summit that have been shown throughout the MSM in the past few days has triggered something in my subconscious for some time, like an alarm clock slowly ticking in the background.

Today I have finally worked out what it is: that blood and injury is fake, and the bloke is clearly provoking a response from the police.

The question behind it is why?

Is it an anarchist group? Is it a government agenda to unsuccessfully create a riot? Is it a plant by the police in testing their riot operations? Is it the media trying to sensationalise a story?

I don't know. But there is something clearly wrong with that picture.

Beware the IMF in June

Looks like The Prince of Darkness let the cat out the bag on C4 last night when Jon Snow got him to admit that in actual fact we WERE in the queue for the IMF, just not at the top.

Still, I reckon the pravda-esque BBC will report it as this:

While what really everyone is thinking is this:
