Fungus the Bogeyman speaks

Rottweiler Puppy -- Take Small Bites Often reports on British Home Secretary, Charles Clarke's speech:

"The right to be protected from the death and destruction caused by indiscriminate terrorism is at least as important as the right of the terrorist to be protected from torture and ill treatment."

Priorities fairly clear there then - personally being an old fashioned sort of chap I feel my right not to be blown up is a teensy weensy more important than a terrorist's (not a suspected terrorist - he said terrorist) right not to be ill treated, but then I'm not Home Secretary.

Still as the BBC reports "Charles Clarke has vowed to "eliminate" disrespect in society by the time of the next general election "whenever it comes"." so by then I will have come to realise the error of my ways and have started to think what a jolly good chap he is, or else....

"eliminate" disrespect in society by the time of the next general election "whenever it comes". Should read "if ever it comes".

A friend of mine who occasionally reads my blog once commented that "one day a big whit transit will pull up outside your house and we'll never hear from you again".

I wonder if you would be in there already? :D
