Proving that it’s not just hopeless but a positively dangerous outfit, the (US) Federal Drug Administration has declined to move against BPA. BPA (Bisphenol A) is a compound found in food and drink packaging over which there are health concerns. My reading around it leads me to avoid the stuff wherever possible. Ideally we’d all be alert and inquisitive consumers making our own choices, but insofar as States put out health advice, it strikes me as bad advice to give it a pass.
BPA is found in many types of plastic bottles, a problem for people like me who like to have water with them all day. So I did a sensible thing a couple of years ago and bought these two beauties on the left, from Klean Kanteen. I have one with me whenever I walk out the house. That’s all there is to them, just 18/8 food-grade stainless steel. You can put alcohol or acidic juices in if you like, and there are no worries about anything leaching. Sigg is a popular brand of metal bottle, but they’re made of aluminium and because of that they require a “baked on epoxy liner”. That doesn’t sit well with me, and Sigg is pretty secretive about what exactly is in that liner. Besides other concerns, there are fears of it containing BPA.
So I’ll stick with my Klean Kanteens. Peace of mind, no leaching, no metallic taste to water, they’re fully recyclable if that’s a concern and one other thing – I’ve saved a fortune in not buying bottled water in shops.

Here’s an interesting admission by someone who was at the heart of the last Labour Government which CONFIRMS what some of us have been saying for years…
Labour ministers deliberately encouraged mass immigration to diversify Britain over the past decade, a former Downing Street adviser has claimed. Andrew Neather said the mass influx of migrant workers seen in recent years was not the result of a mistake or miscalculation but rather a policy the party preferred not to reveal to its core voters. He said the strategy was intended to fill gaps in the labour market and make the UK more multicultural, at the same time as scoring political points against the Opposition.
Say it ain’t so???

I have a guest article published over here on the excellent Polish the Podium! Do give it a read if you want a clear insight into the exact relationship between these two men…

On the day that the Titanic Exhibition Centre opens in Belfast, the Ulster Unionist faithful have chosen their new leader. He’s a dynamic chap who knows how to read an autocue, here’s his picture..

I woke up with this one playing in my brain
By Mike Cunningham On March 31st, 2012 at 11:01 am
We are told in great detail of the opening of the ‘Iconic’ building which houses the Titanic Experience, pictures from talented photographers’ lenses assault our senses in an orgy of colour and ‘hype’; we are informed that Belfast has ‘arrived’ on the international museum circuit with this £100 million extravaganza.
But let us not forget the other extravagances which have made Belfast a watchword in so many other areas.
Firstly there are the 40-foot high Peace walls which separate Protestant from Catholic neighbourhoods. We see many articles on the iniquities of the Israeli wall which cuts off Palestinian villages and neighbourhoods from their Israeli enemies, but not many on the obscenities which sprout from the concrete all over Belfast’s ‘peaceful’ suburbs.
Then there are the ‘murals’ which celebrate the insanities of a divided people, and cement the hold of the shadowy hard men from both sides of a argument to which there really is no answer, because that argument is flawed in so many ways.
Let us not also forget the causes and mindset which produced headlines such as this, as well as this.
Yes indeed, Belfast has lots of things to remember besides the building of a doomed ocean liner.

The Ulster Unionist Party masses gather to choose a new leader today and it is a matter of supreme irrelevance to most people. My bet is that former UTV news reader Mike Nesbitt will win the leadership. Mike stands for more of the same, if a little more liberal. He is a triangulator in my view with no strong views on anything, so a perfect leader for the UUP. By contrast, John McCallister, is an even more progressive liberal albeit with some more changes to policy on offer – such as going into Opposition. I understood that Dignitas are sponsoring the event and I am sure that whoever wins the result will be the same – the sustained demise of the former “natural party of Government”.

I don’t smoke. I have never smoked. I hate the smell of smoke. But I despise the Nanny State even more.
Making houses and cars smokefree is the only way to protect children from second-hand smoke, according to a new government campaign in England. The TV and radio adverts show how pervasive invisible second-hand smoke can be. Breathing it in can damage lungs and cause cancers, research has shown. The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health is calling for smoking in cars where children are present to be made illegal. Second-hand smoke is the smoke breathed in from other people’s cigarettes. The new TV campaign is based on research which shows that most secondhand smoke is in the form of invisible, odourless gases.
This is the State seeking to order you what you cannot do in your OWN home, on your private property. It is an outrage but a natural extension of the sort of thinking that led to the smoking ban in offices in the first instance. Look, IF smoking is so bad so awful – BAN it. And lose all that lovely revenue that Government can’t get enough of. Hypocrites.
