Just a thought...

Two items in the same news bulletin earlier today:

Total UK contributions to the Haiti relief fund so far: £40 million

Total amount of reined in bonuses Goldman Sachs are going to be paying to their so-called "talent" this year: $10 billion.

It is often said that some companies make more money than the national debt of many third-world countries.

Anyone got a handy wall?

It rather suits the suits to breed cynicism though, doesn't it? 11 year old kids bashing the shit out of their contemporaries...a dozen looters in Port au Prince outweighing thousnads od desperate but patient hurricane victims...if we don't pay these tossers such ridiculous sums, they'll only bugger off somewhere else and leave us bankrupt..

Or am I alone in tracing this subtle and system-serving media bias?

You can't help but wonder where George Alagiah et al are kipping of a night. Probably not in a field of tents, I'd hazard to guess...

Dream scenario: Brown grasps the nettle and admits before the Chilcott enq./nation etc. that the the whole horrendous New Labour catastrophe has been a ghastly mistake and vows that "this time it'll be (just like) starting over. Stumped, Cameron admits to being Rhona's less amusing cousin and inadvertently seig heils in front of Prince Harry (you'll recall, he was successfully rehabilitated after a similar faux pas? Well Dave has only gone and bloody set him back to his old ways, hasn't he?)

Order restored, the Queen and Prince Philip romp home in Strictly Come cross country horse buggy riding (or whatever the eff it's called...)

..and the Gooners retain their top-on-goals-scored-advantage until the end of the season.

(A guy can dream, can't he???)

Have a grand weekend anyroad,

L.U.V. on ya,

Bob
