Almost There

**Belated (apologies) link to the Free Jack Idema Blogburst Week 4 also below**

I always feel like the weeks preceding Christmas are a bit like walking a tightrope. More precisely the last few feet of a tightrope where you sort of speed up at the end and wobblingly ‘dash’ to safety. This time of year is a strange mix of excitement that you’ve made it to the end of the year and can look forward to some much needed wind down time with family - and a nervous expectation of impending Doom. Ok im exaggerating - but it is always around Christmas that bad things happen to good people. Lately that’s true on a personal and general level.

Personal aside, the general includes the moonbats dancing around the so called torture camps and the painful hostage publicity – at the top of my Doom list. We can always rely on 'Liberty' (For Who's) Shami to kick up a stink about nothing, whilst remaining tight lipped over the hostage situation and turning a blind eye to someone like Jack Idema. I’m convinced she drags out a copy of the Diana - Martin Bashir interview and emulates the butter wouldn’t melt eyelash fluttering technique for her media moments. I only wish I had saved the Times interview where they desperately tried to find something interesting and flattering to say about her but had to concede her branches dont go all the way to the top of the tree.

Then there’s Ken the Moron ~ by his own recognition. He makes the Scrooge list rather than the Doom list. “Only a moron would discontinue the Routemaster buses” he once said and then promptly took them out of service. He replaced them with a bus that ticks all the boxes for a whopping 10% of Londoners. The 10% who are disabled that is. And wont use the buses anyway Ken – Timmy friendly or not. F*** the able bodied 90% eh. Id truly love to rock up to his office and ask him of he’s seen any disabled Londoners on the bendy buses that lean down to scoop them in. I mean I’m able bodied and I cant get on one of the sodding things they’re so packed. Yup - Routemaster *RIP* this week.

Next up - David Cameron the Limpet of Liberalism takes over at the helm of the Disaster Party. Then we round off the week with the LawLords, back to Shami in the wings again, banning the use of torture evidence. I KNEW it was too good to be true when the Appeals court ruled in favour of hearing terror cases in secret. “No compromise on torture” bleats Shami (subtitle: unless you’re a terrorist). UK: Don’t Turn a Blind Eye to Torture screams a banner. You mean like the upcoming hostage beheading or a certain US marine hero Jack Idema stuck in a hole where he’s periodically beaten up? Or perhaps the torture of spending your Christmas without a son or a daughter or a husband or a wife after our recent summer of love?

Just so long as she and the Crusty Lords of Fuckwittagedom get to take the moral high ground for a bit of free publicity, we get to feel much better as a nation about defending ‘values’. Apparently. Completely useless babble. Someone needs to point out that the moral high ground is none too effective a position in a WOT. Human rights groups - all squillion of them that got out and pushed on this one - are the scourge of society - they need rooting out like Maggie rooted out the Unions (glad to hear she is out of hospital god bless her)

I hope we make that little dash into Christmas safe and sound. Spare a thought for someone like Jack Idema – Rotty does an excellent job again on reminding us why.

  • Id better shake off this bah humbug mood by lighting up the Christmas tree.

    Damn, but I thought my Idema post was a good one this week -- that's a fine, fine sentiment.

    btw: let us know if you want us to include your 'personal level' stuff in our prayer circle.

    Hey Ali what are they saying over there aboutb the explosions in the oil refinery?

    They are not ruling out terrorism but seem pretty tight lipped about it - only suggesting it was an accident. I've just been reading that oil bosses are denying it was leak.
