Right Here Right Now *

So a massive terror plot has been foiled apparently. Really? If it has, then it will be a first. Oh wait, you know of previous plots which have been foiled by the British state? Name one, go on, name one. So there was a plot to blow up 10 planes either going in or out of Britain today. Mmmmm, I think I'll wait and see. Of course, the ones telling us all this are the same officials who put out propaganda saying that this bloke got shot by his brother. They have subsequently put out information that he is some sort of child pornographer. Again, I'll wait and see.

Our secret services and police forces are, of course, well schooled in the art of misinformation and the black ops, having a perfect training ground over the years in the the Six Counties which make up the entity known commonly as Northern Ireland.

Sow me the fucking evidence for this terror plot that was going to blow up 10 planes, show me the actual bombs, show me the papers which will prove without any shadow of doubt that the geezers they picked up last night - coveniently referred to as British but of "Pakistani origin" (shortcut for saying "not white people") by the media mouthpieces of the state - were indeed fucking potential bombers, then I will shout very loudly that I was wrong and the British state is indeed ahead of the game in this war on terror and deserves a big round of applause from us all!

In the meantime, my cynical mind will continue to smell the bullshit! Particularly as this episode comes at a time when John Reid is telling us that we will have to give up our civil rights while his government deals with the nasties.

Glad to see you back blogging, and I do share your cynicism about matters. There has been blanket coverage on the American press about it this morning, though I diidn't John Reid popping up.

Btw, surely you meant Jesus Jones rather than Fatboy Slim? It was a much better song.

More blogs please.

Darren, thanks for your comments. To have a Glasgow Herald columnist on my pages is really an honour, btw :-))

But, no more blogging. I say NOT blogging is the new blogging!

The saddest part of it all? You'll wake up next to a person with bad breath in the airplane, because they've banned toothpaste and mouthwash on board.

What of sanitary pads? Terrorists can create a potion to annihilate and hide it in the fibers of sanitary pads as well. or tampons.

sheesh, the possibilities are never ending.

hi red i missed you. let's comment on each other's blogs again!

Nice post Reidski.

Wait . . .wait . . . The Gunpowder Plot. That was foiled.

See, I knew there'd be one. And we've been celebrating it ever since. Ha ha.

Well, some of us have.

Timing is everything in these matters, don't you think?

Chew a horn - welcome back and, yes, more reciprocal comments would be good. The stuff you mention would sound really funny and absurd if it wasn't actually happening!

John, you got me ... the gunpowder plot, of course! And what a great link that is, says it all really: "Weeks before September 11th, this is going to play big," said another White House official, who also spoke on condition of not being named, adding that some Democratic candidates won't "look as appealing" under the circumstances."

Yes, says it all indeed!

John Reid/Reiski -- ever seen them together???

Love the new 'anti-blogger' blogging role -- very cutting edge of you!

I am not and never have been John Reid - or should that be Uncle John?
And you'll be glad to know marc that after that burst of blogging activity over the past 24 hours, that I'll not be back on the computer til at least next Saturday, so the anti-blogging blogging stuff returns.

Look I'm really not happy about this airport situation. No hand luggage are they serious, do they not realise I am going to a wedding in a couple of weeks!? This means my hat is going to get squashed in my suitcase, its not fair. I feel the need to broadcast my annoyance to these people that started this shenanigan, clearly they werent thinking about my hat!
