Occasional Notes from across the Pond

We never really hear the interesting stuff. At the same time I am writing about Cindy Sheehan being arrested, Recividist is telling us that:
An 82 year old jewish gentleman - who moved to Britain in the 1930’s to escape the horrors of Hitler’s Nazi Germany – an elected official and member of 56 years standing in Tony Blair’s Labour Party, was today violently manhandled and ejected from the Labour Party’s national conference .. and was then arrested under the Prevention of Terrorism Act, for nothing more serious than uttering just one single simple word – “NONSENSE” – during a speech in which the British Foreign Secretary, Jack Straw, was defending government policy over Iraq.
My guess is that its starting to unravel in Britain just like it is here. Now, all we need is the heads of the House of Lords and the House of Commons to be indicted for screwing the pooch (that would be poodle Blair). Ah, well. The Brits always did have a strange way of going at things.
