Blogroll Me! How This Old Brit Sees It ...: Blair! Support our troops!

16 April 2005

Blair! Support our troops!

Above is a photo of a young British Soldier having a run in with irate locals, somewhere in Southern Iraq.
Just another day at the office. Eh?
Around 35,000 of the UK's brave servicemen & women now look set to loose their right to vote in the May 5th general election. All thanks to a cock-up by the government and the MOD.
Those involved should all be ashamed. They should pay a price.
Can you believe It?

Blair can't help his own people. And to think that he's helping Bush to organise Iraq? Neither one of them could organise a piss-up in a brewery.
* Incidentally, the squaddie shown above, escaped that nasty situation in one piece. I hope that's still the case.

Glad you are doing what I am doing. I love looking up illustrations for the articles.

Keep it up, Richard. Really, I enjoy your blog. What do you think about the IMF stuff? It looks stuffy but it is very important....

The comment below, from Oxfam's Jonathan Hepburn, sums it up well for me, Elaine.

"How many children have to die before these seven men in suits develop a sense of urgency?" Jonathan Hepburn, of Oxfam International, told the AFP news agency.

"There was complete silence from the G7 on the sale of gold. Yet the IMF has clearly said the gold can be sold to help cancel poor countries' debt," he said.

Good idea, Elaine. The only thing these guys are truly generous with - is hot air!
