We Are ‘One Nation’, Says Woman On Gold Throne Wearing Diamond-Encrusted Crown As She Announces Further Austerity Measures. Huffington Post.

Gold throne – chair.

Crown – uncomfortable hat.

One nation – now that is the comedy part except for those suffering the austerity.

Howa bout a benefits cap on the ‘royals’?

Professor: If you read to your kids you’re unfairly disadvantaging others. National Review.

But if I send my children to Eton might I be slightly disadvantaging others?

Or if I feed them good, organic food?

Or if I take them out to the seaside or to the country or buy them a bicycle or, or, or, or…

Or perhaps we aren’t supposed to have kids at all???

Or if I breathe

Surely that will disadvantage someone somewhere?

But not if I’m born with a silver spoon in my mouth.

That is a right.

I chose good genes.

Indiegogo. Gravity Light 2 Made in Africa.

This is excellent.  A very simple gravity light which is safe and replaces the fumes and risk of fire posed with kerosene lamps.

Also to be made in Kenya so will provide much-needed jobs.

Now all we need is a stove to replace the kerosene cookers with the same problems but also the cost.  30% of the income of the poor goes on fuel.

Please support and share around.
