  1. Thanks recidivistic namesake and Fatass. Candy; I moved your comment as it seemed more appropriate here than on the office exercises article. The big difference between 9/11 and our 7/7 is that the US government were privately aware they were about to be attacked whereas our government have been told publically, vocally, and repetitively the same thing for years. It’s okay though: Tony and the Charles Clarke/David Blunkett Metabeing have a plan. ID cards won’t be given to people at the borders carrying bombs thus preventing all terrorism in one fell swoop. It’s really quite genius.

  2. Yeah, I’ve been feeling a bit of that myself.

  3. When I saw Blair’s speech, he was saying the right words, but the whole rhythm felt wrong. His pauses for emphasis were too long, too much like hesitation.

    He didn’t convince me.

  4. Thursday
    Blair says terror will not win
    They won’t change our way of life! Never!

    Hooray!

    Friday
    ID cards wouldn’t stop attacks
    "But the home secretary said on balance he believed ID cards would help rather than hinder the ability to deal with particular(*) terrorist threats. He also suggested that in future civil liberties might have to be curtailed."

    Hoor … erm … surprise!

  5. Disagree with what? That its Blairs fault? How many al qaida attacks have we had prior to sticking our oar in in Iraq? And don’t pretend that you’ve never heard anyone saying that if we attack then we will become targets and the world will be less safe. Everyone’s said it for years, now it’s happened. If you tell someone that something is going to happen – in this case, that we will become terrorist targets – and if you march and protest and you are ignored, and then amazingly the very thing you said would happen happens then whose fault is it? If I told you that stepping in front of a car would get you maimed but you did it anyway would it be the car’s fault, mine, or yours? Maybe the car could do more to swerve but ultimately you knew what would happen and you have to take responsibility. I’d like to hear your argument sarspirilla to counter this.

  6. To be fair, maybe Sarsparilla was disagreeing about Clarke’s outright lying. I personally don’t think Tony Blair was completely at fault. If we had had the courage to bundle him into a weighted sack and tossed him in the Thames a long time ago then perhaps we could all have done more to avoid this 🙂 Anyone got a sack and taxi fare to Edinburgh?

    Thank you, Mark. I swear, Mr. Blair was not there prior to my original post.

    I just wanted you all to know that a lot of folks here (USA) care deeply about Mother England. Especially, us with ancestral ties. Hence, the reason I’m so white.

    I won’t discuss politics, except to say Tony Blair is HOT!

    Indeed Mark, seems they knew on the day too
    And of course why inform London’s citizens, whom it would seem, can not be spared from their more valuable occupation, as human sandbags protecting the powerful

    in
    the city, a senior Israeli official said."

  9. "Hence, the reason I’m so white.”

    Isn’t there a way of saying that which makes you sound just a little less like Jerry Falwell? … which, incidentally, I am absolutely sure that you are not.

    😉

    Oh, sorry. I didn’t mean it to be racist.

  11. Candy – What did you mean?

    I just wanted you all to know that a lot of folks here (USA) care deeply about Mother England. Especially, us with ancestral ties. Hence, the reason I’m so white.

    I meant I’m really white with red hair due to my ancestral background – Scottish, English, and Irish. I’ve found the family tree as far back as the 1500’s. Then, it’s like all records stop.

    I don’t understand why my words were taken out of context to mean something bad. Then again, no one here really knows me. I should’ve been more careful with my verbiage. I just ‘assumed’ everyone knew what I looked like, even with a frown. 😉

    It was meant like a joke, per se. Oh well, I guess the damage is done. I’m still really white with the melanocortin 1 receptor, or MC1R, most commonly associated with people or Celtic descent.

    And Thank You, Mark, please send Tony Blair to Candy, Chicago, Illinois 60172.

  12. Candy,

    Sorry if anyone thought I was seriously suggesting that you were … one of them.

    I thought it was kind of obvious that it was meant in jest *sniffle*

  13. Ooh, I think "Political Allegory Hour" would be a great regular feature. Lemme know when the podcast launches.

    Best. Comment. EVER!

    Candy: Tony’ll be on the way as soon as I work out his weight for shipping. I’m still umming and ahhing over whether to add air-holes.

    Lisa: a podcast would require me to have a pod of some sort and I’m not a pod person. Besides, I hate the sound of my own voice – so terribly, terribly British – which would mean I’d have to hire a voice actor. My perfectionist nature would then overshadow proceedings and a simple reading would take hours or days to complete after which I’d be forced to push the dehydrated corpse of my actor through a threshing machine to cover-up the terrible, terrible events.

    Oh, but there are always free robot karaoke WAVs:

    Oddly enough, I’ve done voice work. The most thrilling gig yet? I am the female on-hold voice for Hartz Mountain pet products. You may bow and curtsy in my general direction.

    The disturbing part about doing that one, aside from having to force a smile into my voice, was recording the bit about how you ought to contact a veterinarian if you are having a medical emergency. Because the first thing that comes to mind when poor Fluffy is lying on the floor twitching is to phone the pet food company’s 800 number.

  17. henteaser: not sure what you mean. There’s nothing up (or not) with the picture as far as I can tell.

    Err…surly that should be ‘if we stopped this water ISRAEL would evaporate’

    As I believe the ZIONIST state’s farm projects rely on, and are, sucking the occupied West Bank’s water sources dry!

  20. Jack Straw Labour’s arse mouthed tosser who was swanning around on a tour ‘Up North’ with Condoleeza Rice the other day (31st march)
    is reported to have remarked, on seeing 200 people who had turned out to protest against the pair of killas in one small town
    ‘Pathetic if they asked me I could have done better’

    Strangely such droll and amusing hilarious asides seemed to be remarkably absent from the arse gobbed bozo as he herded the poe face bitch into the LIPA in Liverpool through a throng of 2000 noisy and dangerous looking protesters, later on that same day
