Not a bad day... - Words in the Heroes' Tongue
I have a variable-sword. I urge calm.
Not a bad day...
Joy to the world! The Liar is going at last. In an ideal world he would be hanged from a lamp-post, as is traditional for deposed Fascist dictators, but at least it's a start.

We're watching the Eurovision semi-finals tonight as I will be working when the main event is on. Fantastic songs from Bulgaria and from Georgia; a lot of crap from most of the others so far. Not that anything could possibly be as bad as the British entry (ETA: the Danes and Poles seem determined to prove me wrong) (ETAA: the presenters have just revealed that the bloody awful Polish male singer is in fact British, which I suppose explains a lot).

FIC ANNOUNCEMENT! Chapter Twelve of the curiouswombat/speakr2customrs co-production Access All Areas (Rated R) has just gone up on her journal. Contains fight scenes!

And Life, Resumed has been nominated as Best WIP at the Rogue Poet Awards. Thanks to whoever nominated me!

I'm watching the semi's too. Georgia and Bulgaria are by far the best.

You do have exceedingly good taste.

Indeed. And apparently so do you.

Isn't it ironic that it's precisely when yours is going that we have a new one whom your liar seems to like a lot btw (I don't know if you saw his speech in French on youtube...)

I used to be able to just about get by in French 40 years ago but these days I barely understand a word.

I wouldn't trust Sarkozy as far as I could throw him, though.

Congrats on the loss of your Liar...

I don't suppose your Liar could take out our Liar on his way out the door, could he? *pretty pleeeeaaaazzzzeeeeee*

But remember who you would get instead if your liar went!

Congratulations on the nomination.

On Blair whilst very much not a fan he is at least better than Brown being neither a facist or a dictator.I believe his motivations were honest in this respect.

It is for his destruction of Britain rather than Iraq that he and all of New labour should be pillored as it is to us their duty lies.

Thank you!

Many years ago the Conservatives came up with a cunning plan to ensure that they would rule the UK forever. They inserted a deep-cover agent into the Labour Party and he worked his way up to the top. Once there he set out to destroy Labour altogether and he may have done so. We can but hope that it will recover once the infiltrator has gone - but I fear that he has wrecked it beyond all hope.

Being a conservative myself I would agree there was something of the wolf in sheeps clothing about Blair of course the wolf being socialism from my view. I actually think Brown will do for Labour. As foe recovery I hope not.:-)

Unfortunately we have Blair Mk II in Cameroon. Not a fan of his either. I prefer conviction politics even if I do not agree with it. I could respect Tony Benn as a man even though I disagreed with everything he stood for.

Unfortunately Blairs main legacy is going to be spin. Although hopefully the electorate is getting sick of it.

Hard to muster much grief at the departure of Billy Liar, although it will put some of my favourite comedian/impersonators out of work. Mind you, casting my mind back, I was even perkier at seeing John Major go (both times actually) along with his lovely plan to abolish contributory state pensions.

Off to read AAA now.

I am deeply cynical about all politicians but it would be hard to imagine anyone worse than Blair.
