On my way to the day job and I spotted the statement above, spray painted onto the bus station wall and for some reason it really made me laugh. I started wondering that if Todd were a spastic, then this would be a statement of fact and in turn a statement of affirmative spasticity. Somehow, I doubt that he is…
I needed that joy to off set the fact that workers in the City of London received some £19 billion in bonuses, which is the equivalent to the entire budget for transport in the UK, which is disgusting.
The talk about ‘positive profiling’ at airports, i.e. pick the Paki out of the line, is equally disgusting and fundamentally flawed. Can no one see that we are making our own enemy here, that we are antagonising an entire community, drawing lines in the sand: us and them? As I’ve said far too many times, we got ourselves ourselves a new nigger.
Now, whenever one of my Members of Parliament says that some individual civil liberties may have to be sacrificed for the greater good, I get really nervous. I get nervous because the evidence to do this seems to be based on spurious incidents of fake terror, so why should I trust my government to act in my best interests and where do you eventually draw the line? What volume of my civil liberties do I have to lose in this fraudulent war on a noun, before I’m allowed to get angry?
Todd may or may not be a spastic but Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott was spot on when he said that: “Bush is crap.”
Give that man a medal.
