Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Condoleeza Rice Protests - At Liverpool - In Words And Pictures - Via Blair Watch ...

Condoleeza Rice Protests - At Liverpool - In Words And Pictures - Via Blair Watch ...

Okay, here it is straight from the horse's mouth, so to speak.

Thanks to the absolutely excellent 'Blair Watch' site, one can see just what kind of a wonderfully 'warm welcome' Condoleeza-Cruella-Rice and Jack-the-jerk Straw really received from thousands [not hundreds] of civilized 'scousers'. ( Incidentally, for the enlightenment of any of our 'uninitiated' overseas readers, that's we Liverpudlians' term-of-endearment-type nickname).

Seeing as it's a certainty the official spin machine will spring into super-drive soon -- as if it's not started to already -- be sure to save some all of this stuff for yourself, so you can savour it over & over. And be certain to send the whole shooting match to all those you suspect should appreciate seeing same.

As soon as you arrive at the Blair Watch site you'll suss out why we pair aren't even going to try to compete with their proven competence-cum-class, when compiling several Condi-Straw columns over the past few days. As the old saying goes, 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it'.

Several other super-fine Brit web-folk have also filed some fantastic, protest related reports, updates, pics, etc. So be sure to search out as many related links as you come across within Blair Watch's bloomin' brilliant blog.

And, taking the time & trouble to thank these tireless, true Brit patriots certainly will not go amiss: of that we're sure. So please use their comment facilities to show some sincere appreciation. This Old Brit and Richard believe you'll soon realise you should -- after witnessing their wonderful work -- and that you'll be glad you did, once you have.

So without further ado or delay, go ahead and make your day. And make our day too. But most of all, make the brilliant Blair Watch bunch's day.

Also, letting them know who led you there would be nice. Well, we two old Brit blogger-buggers aren't shy enough to stop ourselves from saying that we think it would be.

Right then brethren. Had enough lyrical waxing and/or waffling from us for one day ?

So .... sit yourself down, peel open a pack or two of popcorn -- then pop straight off to
Blair Watch. -- and enjoy, enjoy, enjoy! After all, thanks to their album at Flicr they're inviting you to share - for free - their dozens and dozens and dozens of great, Condi protest pics -- from This Old Brit's and Richard's very own, old hometown.

So switch off the TV and scour this swathe of full colour, scouse 'stills' beauties.

Oh, and y'all have a simply super Saturday.

I'm amazed at the sheer level of protest (all peaceful, too) which shows that not everyone is in a coma regarding the war...

Perhaps we should ask Condi to tour the WHOLE of the country, thereby perhaps waking up some more sheople...

Great pics over at BlairWatch!

Seems like censoring the 'reality' of protests has become the norm, by using fuzzy math thousands become hundreds. In Sep 2005 the US protest in Washington DC saw hundreds of thousands become a 'few thousand'.

Keep up the good work on your side of the pond!

Great pics of a great demo, Richard. Super-scousers strike again! No wonder all British governments [of whatever stripes] traditionaly worry about scouse-power. He, he.

Thanks for the link to Blairwatch, btw ~ they've definitely got the meassure of him, haven't they?

Btw, I wonder which side Cherie would have been on, had sh e and he not been abroad ~ seeing she's a scouser. But on second thoughts, I don't wonder. She sold out years ago.

I want the thank Liverpoolians for egging that idiot Condi into blurting out the truth that she and Bush and Rummy made THOUSANDS of tactical errors.


Thanks, thanks thanks!

Came to add my thanks as well, Old Brit - for your stance and for the links.
What I thought was specially good to see was the wide age-spread of the protestors -- as well as the under-reported numbers.

I see they flew out from John Lennon airport ...... straight to Baghdad ..... I wonder if Condi will still welcome democracy-style free speech and protest when she lands there?

(Rhetorical question .. obviously)

But well done you Liverpuddlians ... many of us were with you ... in spirit.

Great going Richard & Co. With the protest and with the blog. But where are you hiding? Hope you've not followed that couple of crooks to hound them in Iraq too. too. :-)

Well, I have to confess that I personally wasn't present at the protests - at least, not bodily, but I was definitely there with them in spirit. My excuse? That golden oldie: the spirit is willingly but the flesh is weak - and wrinkly.

Thanks to our regulars for taking care of business as it were, while I did other things [which I didn't want to have to do].

And btw, you're very welome, kira.

Huh, just like I saw on "V for Vendetta"!

I've not seen that "V" picture. Is it any good? Worth going to watch?
