New Orleans' Black & Brit Trash ...
You're on your own, Britain's victims toldNice, eh ?
Sunday September 4, 2005 The Observer
British families trapped in New Orleans last night claimed that US authorities had refused to evacuate them as Hurricane Katrina approached the city.
On a day that Britain has flown over more than half a million 'canned rations' to help. Eh?
Special relationship, eh?
On a day that young Brit soldiers are still fighting, suffering, being maimed and dying in the US inspired, illegal Iraq oil-turf war and occupation. Eh?
Shoulder to shoulder, eh?
Still, one shouldn't be so be surprised I suppose. After all, many of America's own citizens were literally left like trash -- to rot, starve and/or die of thirst -- in the world's largest open sewer, which was once a city called NewOrleans.
Although assistance was offered to US residents, British nationals were told they would have to fend for themselves.
According to those who remain stranded in the stricken city, police had visited hotels and guest houses on the eve of the hurricane offering to evacuate Americans, but not Britons.
The order meant UK holidaymakers without cars were left helpless in the face of the hurricane. Some have been trapped in hotels and guest houses since the hurricane struck at 7am local time last Monday.What? No car? Duh!
Poor - black - bloody Brit-twit - or any other foreigner -- what's the difference? Eh?
To coin a phrase - " They didn't fucking vote for us."
So let them all sink or swim in the same shit, eh?
One family from Liverpool, trapped in a flooded section of the city, told relatives yesterday of their bewilderment when they realised US citizens would be offered preferential treatment.How many times have we heard that bombastic little bastard Bush ask: "Why do they hate us?"
Gerrard Scott, 35, spoke to his brother Peter from the Ramada Hotel in New Orleans where he has been stranded without assistance with wife, Sandra, 38, and seven-year-old son Ronan for the past six days. 'Those that didn't fit their criteria were told to help themselves.
The police said they were evacuating Americans, and took away the majority.
Well, try this for size shrub - I'm a Brit and I was born, bred and brought up in Liverpool. And there are several hundred thousand more like me. So, go on smart arse, ask us again. Eh?
'The British who were left all thought the police would come back, but nobody has. They have just been left,' said Peter Scott last night.
Other Britons are, apparently, stranded in the hotel. However, contact with the outside world remains haphazard.
There is a payphone in the hotel lobby, but US operators have been refusing to accept collect calls from stranded Britons.
'Some of them are just hanging up even after they have explained they are trapped in New Orleans. It's like - what emergency?' said Scott.
But you know what makes me mad, the most? Eh?
Neither Bush nor Cheney, nor any other big time movers & shakers in their crooked cabal were in New Orleans in police uniforms. Nor where any of them working as phone operators.
Those cops and phone operators were, what are so fondly referred to as 'regular' Americans.
Just following orders, eh?
One nation under God? Seems more like one nation under sedation, these days
Right now I'm neither cool nor calm enough to comment further.
I'll simply leave a link.
