I don't know; I retreat into the newsless bubble that is the Edinburgh Festival (it's fucking pissing it down right now, and generally bloody miserable) and when I emerge—blinking myopically, into the bright light of world politics—our politicians are still a bunch of faithless, dishonourable cunts with the morals of an alley-cat.
I would ask what the fucking fuck is going on, except that I am fully aware that bugger all has changed, and that we are still ruled by a bunch of self-aggrandising, cowardly, avaricious fuckheads who were elected by the stupidest 21.6% of the very stupid population of which we mere bloggers are the better part.
I am riled, of course and via Timmy, by this government's treatment of the Iraqis who have worked with us since the invasion. What the fuck is going on? Where is our sense of honour? Where is the British sense of fair play?
In short: why are our politicians such fucks? What is the Arabic for "where do we find these grasping fucking idiots"?
Can we not swap them? For every Iraqi we adopt, we get to send one of our awful, talentless, corrupt politicos to live as a scratch subsistance farmer in Iraq.
Oh, happy day!
