Hysterical Scousers

Wednesday, October 20th, 2004

Today is the day the Boris Johnson goes to Liverpool to face the music for comments he made in the Spectator magazine. As editor he "guided" an article to express a valid opinion: that this country is influenced by the media which has the power to create an atmosphere of mass hysterical mourning. Ken Bigley's death was very sad, but so is the dead of the other thousands of people who have died in this unjust war. The level of grief was totally disproportionate and media influenced. Did Boris just have the courage to express this opinion, or was it calculated and cunning step which can now show him as the politician who, unlike some others, is able to say 'sorry'? Nice one Boris, you've got style.

Iraq Survey Group

Thursday, October 7th, 2004

Today is Thursday 7th October 2004, the day the ISG (Iraq Survey Group) published its findings that there were no WMD in Iraq leading up to the war. The report found him guilty of wanting to rebuild his warmongering capabilities when sanctions had been lifted. Well, you can hardly blame him for wanting to rearm again – its pretty much all he knows! But what's unbelievable is that TB has tried to turn the whole thing around and say "Ha! Told you!! Ner-ner-na-ner-nerr! He wanted to rebuild his arms! So that's why he was such a massive threat and why we went to war!!" What the??…did I miss something? Has te world gone mad??? Most people are saying 'Ah, but no. I think you are wrong on this matter, Mr Prime Minister', when what they should be saying is 'HAVE YOU GONE TOTALLY FUCKING MAD??? YOU'RE TALKING COMPLETE BOLLOCKS!!!'.
For there to be a threat you need both capability and intent. He had no capability, that much we know. Intent? Against whom? The UK? I don't think so.
