It is nearly 4 months since Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast. However, all the news is about New Orleans. New Orleans was not the only place hit. There are large portions of Mississippi and Alabama that have been affected. Go to Blackfive
here, and the article link here.

It appears that Peter Hain doesn't like the
opposition. Oh well, don't try and provide amnesty for IRA terrorist murderers then.

Burma...has decided to move its you do...see

As if trying to redistribute wealth was not the best idea, it appears the Tory party are trying to outdo getting
Bob Geldof to join an advisory group on addition to being on the group that is formulating green policies for the party.

Why did
this happen? Does anyone think Gaza is remotely safe for holidays?

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas everyone.

Whilst you are taking it easy, spare a thought for those that have to work.

For those in the emergency services, there will be no time off for Ambulance crews, Paramedics, Fire Brigade or Police Force personnel.

In addition, probably the most important of all, spare some time for all the Armed Forces personnel in the British Army, Royal Air Force and Royal Navy who are serving overseas, a lot of whom are on active duty.

Stay safe.

Well....police reform....check out some of the articles on Blues And Twos and also here on B&T again. It appears not to be going Mr Clarke's way.

The Conservative Party appears to be no more. Why? Well
Oliver Letwin appears to be pushing the 'distribution of wealth' concept forward. Talk about going socialist. He's Head of Policy, which if anything makes it worse.

If anyone happens to read this from the electoral need to change the voting forms for the next elections....a new box with 'None Of The Above' next to it...seeing as we have left, lefter and whatever the Lib Dems are, with the conservative voters having nothing to vote with...and I'm not voting UKIP or whatever other party is there.

If you want to be a Labour member, NOT Conservative you dozy pillock. I suppose that's one way of killing off the Tory Party for good....I'm still not going to be voting Labour regardless....I suppose it'll have to be the Raving Monster Loony Party..although they haven't been the same since Screaming Lord Sutch died....we're doomed!!

Hmm...the first gay marriage in Northern Ireland. My question is why? Why should they have the same rights as a married couple? I'm not against gays (I hate that word) having a relationship, I just don't understand why they deserve more rights than an unmarried heterosexual couple.

Hospitals....clean, sterile environments yes? Well not in
this case...and that was intensive care.

His Toniness has been
defending giving away over £7 billion to Europe. I think he needs to explain why the decision was made, especially without bothering to inform the general public.

I am not quite sure what the problem is over
spying in the USA. I would expect that the security services would be investigating suspicious people on a regular basis...why this should vex people so much is beyond me. Maybe it's because I'm British, we have different ideas I suppose.

Iran is
banning Western music from its radio stations. Oh well.

On lighter notes...sort of...

Hmm...just a quick update.

It appears that the elections in Iraq appear to have gone off with relatively few problems. Good luck to all the people in Iraq, I hope things work out for you all.

John Spencer has died. Known for his role as Leo McGarry in The West Wing, and as Tommy Mullaney in LA Law, he died after a heart attack on Friday.

Various - Police Reorganisation, China

So, no doubt you have heard of the government plans to reorganise the Police Forces so as to reduce the number. However, it looks like it will cost...and are the Government likely to fund it? No, I don't think how do you think the service is going to cope with the debt? Some think it is not necessarily the best idea, especially with regard to discussion or rather the lack of consultation time.

After the Chinese security forces killed up to 20 people in
Dongzhou, a number of dissidents and intellectuals wrote a letter of protest. There are calls for an independent investigation. The letter is here (in Chinese).
