How nice it would be to see some of this running in the press over here:
Tony Blair would be well advised to remember this hoary old saw: You can fool all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time but you can’t join an oil-crazed right-wing nutter’s lunatic crusade in the Middle East on the basis of ridding the world of a Blofeldesque stockpile of Doomsday devices and come up with nothing more threatening than the contents of Portobello beach without getting a long, hard, stiff kicking from the electorate. – News.scotsman.com, “Heroes and Villains: Brent East and Andrew Gilligan,” 19 September 2003.
Obviously, the Brits and Scots aren’t nearly as ignorant as Americans. Over there, they actually get pissed off and do something about it when their leaders try to shaft them.
News.scotsman.com to my attention.
