The long spliff of the law

The wrong side of capitalism provides us with conclusive proof that the police are getting more like new age hippies everyday.

The post reminded me of the time when, collecting for the Liverpool Dockers, these two cops came up to us and I thought "here we go" and was just preparing my best "fuck you copper" sneer when the taller one of the two said

"Do you know what? The worst thing Thatcher ever did was to use the police as a political weapon against the working class" and threw and tenner into the bucket.

I was rather gobsmacked to be honest.

Why dont you talk about the Islamic terrorists arrested today? Must be because Israel invaded Lebanon and they were angry.

Wait, that's right, they've been plotting this thing since way before war broke out between Israel and Lebanon.

So much for blaming this on Israel...

Amazing how much radical Islamists worship a culture of death.

In the UK, Lebanon, India, Indonesia...

Israel and Lebanon accept the conditions of a UN cease fire. Hezbollah - no response except for dead silence, and that speaks volumes.

Hezbollah offered a ceasefire some time ago on condition Israeli forces left Lebanon, which it seems to me, is the precondition of any settlement.
