The Last Furlong

Comments on the race of life.


Old as the hills – the casting couch

I see tons of articles about Harvey Weinstein. (this list is worth scrolling through and feeling shocked at his massive manipulative power.)

Every man who knew and who now expresses shock is actually complicit. Shame on you all. Continue reading



Latest Report on Las Vegas

It took me absolutely ages to find this – I try to watch the proper Las Vegas Police Reports so that I’m not carried away by the disbelief of almost everyone else, but, which I must say, creeps uninvited into me too when I watch these official releases. Continue reading

Parliamentary passion

Yesterday this video was passed around of the Ugandan Parliament violence. Don’t think it only happens there – the video that follows it shows that Parliamentarians are no better than us ordinary folk. A good punch up has been our thing for many thousands of years.

Evolution? Yes!

We now do it in suits! Continue reading


Political Speech by an expert

Mr Furlong reminded me of how you could say nothing at all, expertly!


My friends, in the light of present-day developments let me say right away that I do not regard existing conditions likely. On the contrary, I have always regarded them as subjects of the gravest responsibility and shall ever continue to do so. Indeed, I will go further and state quite categorically that I am more than sensible of the (exact) definition of the precise issues which are at this very moment concerning us all. We must build, but we must build surely. Hear, hear! – Let me say just this: If any part of what I am saying is challenged, then I am more than ready to meet such a challenge. For I have no doubt whatsoever that whatever I may have said in the past, or what I am saying now, is the exact, literal and absolute truth as to the state (?) of the case. – Hear, hear! -I put it to you that this is not the time for vague promises of better things to come. For, if I were to convey to you a spirit of false optimism, then I should be neither fair to you nor true to myself. But does this mean, I hear you cry, that we can no longer look forward to the future that is to come? Certainly not! Voice from the audience: What about the workers? “What about the workers?”; indeed sir! Grasp, I beseech you, with both hands [Aside: I’m so sorry, I beg your pardon, madam.] the opportunities that are offered. Let us assume a bold front and go forward together. Let us carry the fight [noise of a blow being struck] against ignorance to the four corners of the earth because it is a fight which concerns us all. Now, finally my friends, in conclusion, let me say just this: [BIG SILENCE !!!]

The thlot plickens

I mentioned Chloe Ayling in  post in August. There was something ‘funny’ about her kidnap, but, with everyone else who was prepared to give her the benefit of the doubt, I did too.

I still think there was something ‘funny’. Continue reading
