My name is Dom. This is where my flat is, in London, UK.
On the 4th of February 2013, while I was out, someone broke into my flat and stole my iPad and my MacBook Pro.
I was very fond of both of those things and I was sad that they were gone.
I phoned the police and told them what had happened and they were very sympathetic, they came and dusted for fingerprints and consoled me.
I still have no idea where my iPad is, but fortunately I had installed Hidden App on my laptop, just in case it was ever lost or stolen, so I would be able to trace it’s whereabouts. However for over a month whoever was in possession of my laptop did not connect to the internet. Until…
Apparently, Thatcher died at the Ritz!
Dear Fellow Lunatics in UCU
(Apologies if you’re not a lunatic – I may as well email this query to all the Union’s mailinglists, given that it turns out our Union is absolutely riddled with lunatics.)
Does anyone know what the Union’s accommodation arrangements are for lunatics at UCU National Congress in Brighton this May? Will there be arrangements made for us to be securely housed in a Brighton asylum, or will the Union arrange for us to be put in individual padded cells within our own Regional Delegations’ hotels?
Do we need to bring our own straightjackets? Or will they be included in our delegate packs?
I’m just wondering, ‘cos I’ve been elected the National Congress delegate for my branch (I know! I TOLD them I was a lunatic and therefore not fit to hold elected office but they WOULDN’T listen!) and I’ve just been filling in the Delegate Registration Form.
I got a bit unstuck in the section asking whether I needed any special requirements in relation to the hotel… I realised that there are some obvious difficulties that arise.
So I gave a rather lengthy explanation in the little box, which I reproduce below. So I’m just wondering if the Union’s made any special arrangements for where it wants us lunatics (other than a police cell?)
In recognition of the biggest fool in the whole history of british politics, April Fools Day has now been renamed David Cameron’s Day, in honour of this churlish clown!
