Fame And The Wider World.
Thanks to Bob notoriety and fame are unlikely to go to my head, but I should probably put a bit more effort in. Chucking together a post in three to five minutes is probably not that advisable, so a few items of news.
The BBC has investigated the recent massacres and confirmed many of the details.
The Lisbon treaty has been signed by the last member, the Czech Republic. Whilst there is quite a kerfuffle on the document I’m not so sure that it will really affect the lives of ordinary people within the EU. Certainly there will be squabbling between the various political elites, on a national and supranational basis, which will no doubt receive considerable coverage in the media and amongst the chattering classes, but I can’t see what real affect the Treaty will have on real people.
The Greens split or are re-founding themselves? Depends on who you believe, it’s hardly surprising that the seductive temptation of power, real political power, managed to weaken the supposed principles of the Irish greens. A pity, but not a surprise.
Somewhere near Alaska.
Sarah Palin is still touring America with her ghostwritten book, it is still hard to believe that she was almost one heart attack (John McCain’s) away from being President of the United States. Frightening.
Finally, as much as I am opposed to nuclear energy I can’t help thinking that there was a missed opportunity here, a chance to create radioactive Nick Griffin. Pity, he could have turned it into a party trick. Turn down the lights and be illuminated by the nuclear Nick Griffin. Still not very appealing either way!
