Eight steps to building an HP BladeSystem

It's what we always suspected - the BBC has pretended to give you an unbiased, independent viewpoint on world events but in fact it was working towards mass mind control.

Thanks to a reader who still maintains the capacity for individual thought, the first leakage can be found and - confound them! - it has been processed through the new medium of the Internet.

Visit Auntie's coverage of Slobydan Milosevic (sic, alright? Sic) admittance of his defeat and half way down you'll find that you are invited to "click here for your thoughts on the uprising".

That's right folks, no longer are you required to think for yourself - not when the BBC can do the thinking for you. Just thing of the advantages. And with the BBC now available 24 hours a day, you needn't worry that you are getting things wrong.

The Internet is a truly great invention. If you're American, you could probably now sue the BBC if you shoot your spouse - well, they weren't your thought processes, were they? ®
