A modern Christmas Tale.....
'T'was the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, except Papa's mouse.
The computer was humming, the icons were hopping,
As Papa did last-minute Internet shopping.
The stockings were hung by the modem with care
In hope that St. Nicholas would bring new software.
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of computer games danced in their heads.
Dark Forces for Billy, and Doom II for Dan,
And Carmen Sandiego for Pamela Ann.
The letters to Santa had been sent out by Mom,
Which has now been re-routed to Washington State
Because Santa's workshop has been bought by Bill Gates.
All the elves and reindeer have had to skedaddle
To flashy new quarters in suburban Seattle.
After centuries of a life that was simple and spare,
St. Nicholas is suddenly a new billionaire,
With a shiny red Porsche in the place of his sleigh,
And a house on Lake Washington that's just down the way
From where Bill has his mansion. The old fellow preens
In black Gucci boots and red Calvin Klein jeans.
The elves have stock options and desks with a view,
Where they write computer code for Johnny and Sue.
No more dolls or tin soldiers or little toy drums
Will be under the tree, only compact disk ROMS
With the Microsoft label. So spin up your drive,
From now on Christmas runs only on Windows 95.
More rapid than eagles the competitors came,
And Bill whistled, and shouted, and called them by name.
"Now, ADOBE! now, CLARIS! now, INTUIT! too,
Now, APPLE! and NETSCAPE! you are all of you through,
It is Microsoft's SANTA that the kids can't resist,
It's the ultimate software with a traditional twist -
Recommended by no less than the jolly old elf,
And on the package, a picture of Santa himself.
Get 'em young, keep 'em long, is Microsoft's scheme,
And a merger with Santa is a marketer's dream.
To the top of the NASDAQ! to the top of the Dow!

Now dash away! dash away! dash away -wow!"
And Mama in her 'kerchief and I in my cap,
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap,
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
The whirr and the hum of our satellite platter,
As it turned toward that new Christmas star in the sky,
The SANTALITE owned by the Microsoft guy.
As I sprang from my bed and was turning around,
My computer turned on with a Jingle-Bells sound.
And there on the screen was a smiling Bill Gates
Next to jolly old Santa, two arm-in-arm mates.
And I heard them exclaim in voice so bright,

View Article  Bollocktics! Why should colour matter?

Bollocktics! Why should colour matter?Hi, I'm Karsten Evans. You might remember me from previous local elections standing for
the Swindon Org UK party, the Green party and now as an Independent.
Fed up of expense scandals, secret deals, rising Residential parking fees?
Do you like me feel that politics is mainly a load of obfuscated bollocks and excuses?
You don’t trust the ‘system’ where a party can be 3
rd according to the number of votes they
receive, but get the most seats in Parliament, or where residents views on parking are
ignored by ruling councillors.
Want to express your frustration, but believe there is no point in voting?
I did too!
I am standing in Central locally and in South Swindon in the General Election, so that
every vote for me can be counted as a
protest!In Central, it is a protest against rise in the Parking permit fees and a vote of no confidence
in the parking Dept. of SBC
In the General Election, it is a
protest about the low standards of Members of Parliament and the government civil service that should have been checking them.

Remember the TV sitcom 'Yes, Minister!'
Supposedly a satirical spoof, but recently seems more like a documentary!

I’m fed up of obfuscating Bollockticians and the ‘Humphrey’s and ‘Bernard’s that pull the bollocktician’s strings. I am fed up of Resident’s Parking being used as a Cash Cow, fed up that vital charities funding is cut while there are local civil servants in SBC that earn more than the Prime Minister! Fed up of ‘secret’ deals like the Digital City WiFi ‘scandal’ (remember Springfield’s MonoRail? ;-). Fed up of SBC not acting to save the Mechanics.
Fed up of Swindon buildings being demolished by a “New Swindon” company without clear plans for using the free space.   No matter what colour bollocktics presides, it always ends up the same with ‘Promises, promises’!

Will your vote mean more as a protest or if you use it to support a colourful bollocktician?
This is your chance to tell them what you really think. Let them know they are accountable to the public by protesting and not simply voting.
Don’t abstain from your right to vote and stick your head in the sand.
The accomplice to the crime of corruption is frequently our own indifference”.

My main reason for standing in Central is to protest about Resident’s parking fees and to get them back to what they should be (for the residents) and to revoke last year’s increases.
I want SBC to cut costs in ‘Parking’ by reducing the ten Parking Attendants allocated to residential zones and not by increasing permit costs. I want to find out the ‘real’ income from parking fines as I don’t believe SBC gets only £163,000 from parking fines. Milton Keynes get over £5million a year in income from parking fines. I am against the unfair parking fees at the hospital (another SBC cash cow) and will fight for fairer fees for patients and visitors.

What might we have in common?Well, I have been fined for parking in front of my house; I don't own a duck house or have a second home, I own a house in Central Swindon. I was made redundant after the Credit Crunch hit and I am a single parent. I was born in Cardiff, and first moved to Swindon in ’89. I have lived in Ford street since ‘95 and I know most of my neighbours. I have never spoken to or met my local councillor or MP. Personally, I admire Clegg and Joanna Lumley for getting long overdue justice for Ghurkhas, but wonder how and why the
Government blocked it twice. I do not admire Bliar or respect Brown for ‘rescuing us’ from the banking crisis as Brown gave free reign to the w bankers in the first place.

What can I promise:Unlike professional bollockticians, I can’t promise anything, except to fight to get Residential Parking back to what it was, to dig and expose anything I find that is not right in SBC, to oppose new house building on greenfield sites just for the sake of it, to regularly litter pick somewhere in Swindon and to be available to help any one in Swindon with a real problem to get their voice heard.
I can promise that every vote I get is not wasted. Every one will be a vote of no confidence in the existing system and will make both local and national bollockticians nervous.
Current polls and voting quotas will put Labour 3rd, but they will get most seats and still be in majority. Is that fair, democratic? Maybe to an MP, but not to me!
The council is mainly answerable to the public only via elections. That was the gist of the reply to Anne Snelgrove’s question about the ‘secret’ Digital City deal to a near-empty House of Commons. I have nothing against Anne, but will supporting Labour or the Conservative really change anything? Show the House of Commons and SBC that your vote DOES count. Help me persuade SBC to make Residential Parking fair and do not tolerate bollocks (old English meaning “nonsense”)

Ever wondered where your recycling ends up? SBC sell it on… so it is most probably being shipped to China or India! That’s Carbon neutral, isn’t it?

If you feel there is no point in voting, may I please ask for your ‘Protest’ vote?

I put up my own money for my own election deposit and your vote could help me get it back? :¬DRead more about my views on Www.Swindon.Org.UK
