We Told You We Didn't Want War
[previous] :: [next]
and now you have to believe us.
the labour government are back in, here, but by a nice thin punishing majority instead of a do as you like fat one. good.
now, in what the media are describing as a 'surprise' ousting, my local labour lady has been booted out and we have a man from a brand new party styling itself 'respect'. this is the permatanned george galloway. he stood on an anti war platform.
25% of the entitled electorate in this country turned out to vote yesterday. i was not one of them. i am not apathetic, i have voted labour all my life, but i cannot bring myself to vote otherwise. 75% voted with their feet. exactly why we do not know, but we do know that whoever you vote for the government always gets in.
when the right wing government i spent my young adulthood under the pall of did bad things we said these are mean people doing bad things.
when labour took us to war, well.

we already were... especially by television
i didn't think i was bothered if george snagged it, or if oona just got a hiding but slipped in, but i am glad to have the anti war bloke, and he is, it turns out big chummies with tony benn, possibly the best prime minister we never had

cool. i just like the blood-splattered bushface photo. it looks creepy.
elaine: 6th May 2005 - 14:37 GMT
it probably doesn't just look creepy, it probably is creepy. he is creepy, and my guess is he is doing something creepy
Peter: 6th May 2005 - 14:47 GMT
it was from when he had a bike wreck a year or so ago... and if you ask me- yes, im going to go ahead and say what everyone is thinking- its a damn shame he didnt get hurt alot worse, heh >:)
he is a creepy, evil man; he is ruining our country and our world simultaneously.

who saw george galloway tearing a strip off jeremy paxman on live tv the other night?
elaine: 9th May 2005 - 10:34 GMT
poor paxo! i didn't see. i am glad, it might have made me sad. i am liking the fury, in general, though. i hope he improves our shitty hospital

heh, he was being interviewd remotely via an in-studio screen thingy and was pissed off with the line of questioning and said something along the lines of "i've just won an election!" and buggered off. Jeremy was all like "uhh?!" an i was all like #"hah!". I am not fond of jemermy paxman.

ha ha, i heard that interview last night, very poor paxo, dreadful. to be honest, 'how dare you stand aganinst a black woman?' is really not a question, and certainly not one he should have had anything to do with, he deserved a taste of his own medicine for that.
Jamie: 12th May 2005 - 08:19 GMT
That's all very well but didn't he (alledgedly) accept a gift of 20 million barrels of oil from Saddam's government not so long ago?
elaine: 12th May 2005 - 08:31 GMT
well exactly, and, like i say, he has this suspicious tan. he looks like the car dealer from the fast show - a car, jamie, is very much like a beautiful woman...

note to yanks: our man galloway is on his way to washington right now, ostensibly to justify his links with saddam hussain, i hope your geezer bush is ready to confess his interest in the oil system, it might just turn out the worse for him... keep your ears to the ground, there will be fireworks, whether they are broadcast or not depends on your media

yesterday i saw this sticker left over from the voting telling muslims not to vote. this, in a ward with a candidate standing specifically on an anti war platform. some people literally will cut off their nose to spite their face. bear in mind that funamentalists may be active, but they do not speak for the vast majority. nevertheless i think this is shocking

i know! i was so pleased to see this today. i have other stuff to post, but just wanted to put this one in here. it's fab, isn't it?

bush would be held under section 35 of the mental health act if he tried that 'god told me to do it'line in the uk
elaine: 7th Oct 2005 - 11:40 GMT
yeah, so that's alright then, as long as you have the means to do it, ...er?
elaine: 7th Oct 2005 - 11:50 GMT
actually it might be section 136, sorry about that - though if he was arrested first it would be 35. it's complicated, there is more than one section you can be detained under www.hyperguide.co.uk/mha/overview.htm#start for anyone pedantic enough to want to check, or enough of an interest in the labyrinthine 1995 mental health act (uk)
