Click here for the final, pitiful confirmation that the war on terror was a complete load of bollocks.
One of the few things that makes me proud to be a Brit right now is the outpouring of utter revulsion in all the responses to this news piece (which emerged from a letter in the paper yesterday).
Would be good if an incident as offensive, loathsome and unnecessary as this might finally trigger someone up top to wonder if policing and policing legislation aren’t in dire need of change.
I’ll leave that on the “unlikely” list though…

Good question, and I’m not entirely sure myself. I think it’s probably because it’s worth reading simply so you can gawp in either admiration at the delusion / mendacity of the man, or feel a hint of sympathy that he is clearly off his rocker and has lost his already feeble grip on reality. Either way, it’s a gread read if you’re a lover of the Fiction genre…
There’s some excellent comments of feedback too – loads of them in fact (hardly surprising given how easy it is to pick apart such awful, patronising bollocks) – though of course, they will doubtless go unanswered.
What with reading that this morning AND all the latest on that other servant of Satan, Sir Fred Goodwin, I’m beginning to wonder if we shouldn’t start working ourselves out of this recession by creating lots of jobs for Gallows Builders.
I’ll stop now before that full-blown Anger Stroke hits… ;-)

When climate camp protesters descended on the site of the Kingsnorth power station for a week-long summer demonstration, the scale of the police operation to cope with them was enormous. Police were accused of using aggressive tactics, but ministers justified what they called the “proportionate” £5.9m cost of the operation, pointing out that 70 officers had been injured in the course of their duties.
But data obtained under the Freedom of Information Act puts a rather different slant on the nature of those injuries, disclosing that NOT ONE was sustained in clashes with demonstrators.
The Home Office has now admitted that the protesters had not been responsible for any injuries.
Enjoy the following…
“stung on finger by possible wasp”
“officer injured sitting in car”
“officer succumbed to sun and heat”
“officer used leg to open door and next day had pain in lower back”
And to think that the government finds the electorate to be cynical…

Although it was brilliant to see the House of Lords shit on the 42-day detention bill – and also hilarious yet irritating to hear Jacqui Smith’s horrendously patronising “you may not care about terrorism but I do” comments afterwards, it looks like the malevolent good-for-nothing old bat is getting her revenge in quick with this nasty piece of work…
It’s to be resisted at all costs of course – hopefully we’ll be pleasantly surprised by the Lords again (there’s certainly little hope of finding anybody with a spine in the Labour benches to shoot this kind of crap to bits).
Time to join PROTECT THE HUMAN if you haven’t already done so.
Should we really be entrusting the liberty of our citizens to this preposterous woman who’s so bloody paranoid she thinks she deserves a medal for going out and buying a kebab?
