Lo and behold the yawnfest of a British heir's marriage. Kate Middleton (the most tedious girl in her year at Marlborough) will marry the equally tedious William Von Windsor. This news fell like bricks from the sky today just in time to divert any real comment from the British government shoveling millions in cash to ex Guantanamo detainees who the government were "most likely" complicit in torturing........etc

i am not even bothering to post links to this, are yess all slow or wha?

Ah yes, just watching the "happy little ducks" (the groom's words) on the Beeb news. The thought did occur as to what the Govt might choose to bury while the nation concentrates on coming up with tasteful royal wedding tea towels and biccy tins......

Snafu, foobar.... not that news burying is the happy couple's fault, obviously.

Ah Well

Maybe the privileged couple can make a Guest Appearance on X Factor ... that should endear 'em to the multitudes on this side of the Pond

Had the same thought but couldn't watch the news today. Wall to wall coverage of the royal herpes head and the wife to be.

The "Royal Wedding" will mean a virtual news blackout in the UK for the bones of a year.

Ah here, turns out the brits didn't actually do anything wrong. They just don't have the time to defend themselves against the charges that they were complicit in torture.


Cameron acted after the high court ruled confidential documents would have to be released in any court hearings. Vetting such documents, possibly as many as 50,000, would take huge amounts of time for MI5 and MI6, Cameron said.And anyway, they don't really know how their own court system works either.


Explaining the decision to open talks, Cameron told MPs on 6 July: "Our services are paralysed by paperwork as they try to defend themselves in lengthy court cases with uncertain rules.

Maybe if the British government considered not getting involved in human rights breaches and war crimes their intelligence agencies wouldn't have quite so much paperwork to endure.

Turning into a regular little Goldman Sachs isn't HMG? 'Here's some money now go away while we plan the next farrago the taxpayer will be only too delighted to pay for'.

That, in a nutshell, concisely explains why I chose to leave the UK.

Paying for the banks is still slightly preferable to paying for the bombs, IMO.
