Why did the Rolling Stones choose to play their first warm-up gig on the eve of their 50th anniversary tour in Paris, of all places? Why not London?
I’ll tell you why. Because Britain’s most famous rock band never pass up an opportunity to disrespect their home country.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Ronnie Wood and Charlie Watts make no secret of their hatred of the British Establishment. They’re rock ’n’ roll rebels, after all, even if they do have a combined age of 274. But why do they have to thumb their noses at the British people as well? (To read more, click here.)

If Mick Jagger et al weren't the Rolling Stones in their spare time, they'd be categorised as the elderly and given the kind of respect afforded in this country to other old codgers. You'll be old one day y'now!
Talking of old codgers -- does Peter Lilley really read research papers and reviews from Climate Science journals? You know, it worries me when (most) MPs present their 'evidence-based' views on any subject. It's about as reassuring as the science bit in face cream adverts.
