ha! to think i was fooled for a minute!
kinder, gentler thatcher?
her behaviour has more consistency than blair's, but otherwise they're singing from the same hymnal....kowtowing to the 'pillars of the business community' who pull the strings in the political puppetshow...
fuck the earth... and all who live in it, money is obviously much more important than survival, election platform be damned!
yesterday i watched a show on arte about the production of stravinsky's 'rite of spring', with simon rattle conducting the berlin philharmonic.
there was a ballet teacher from england who made a most profound comment...
apparently the 'rite' consisted of letting women literally dance themselves to death, in order to placate the gods and supplicate a return of the spring.
the ballet teacher said we are still sacrificing our young, the future generations, in an equally bizarre ritual.
though instead of dancing, i would point out that our equivalent is hours spent sucking fumes in logjammed traffic, or widget making in some kafkaesque satanic mill, more likely in the marianas or indonesia than in sheffield or pittsburgh, with the shadow of imf-style economic totalitarianism and nuke-powered police state hanging over us...
hopefully the german voters will see through this shoddy excuse for a scam. they and we deserve better than this as a model.
as for an energy minister portfolio for europe, will there be secret meetings, a la cheney?
that potential seat of power is getting pretty damn hot, no wonder no-one's volunteering...by the time elections roll around it could be as attractive a throne as an electric chair....
solar powered, natch!
