    But should she be allowed to say so? Isn't she supposed to remain impartial in public? Isn't she misleading and misrepresenting us?
    Let's be honest: who or what's gonna stop her, short of a revolution?

    and before ANYONE says anything, i'm not advocating revolution!

    No, i couldn't be bothered!
    Bush wont see it, so whats the point?
    he will see it on TV - not quite the same, i know, but i took a camcorder out lkast night and filmed the march in bristol, and got some great shots! if theres anything similar on TV, it'll be worth it.
    i wonder whether he actually knows about them all, or whether he's shielded from it?

    p.s. nice signature, lol

    Well she should be told. After all we lavish her with everyone she has. She is obliged to serve us. Some politicians with conviction should speak out.

    I think he's aware that the are happening, but is being shielded from the size of it.
    But i think he'd be watching the CBeebies channel instead ( )

    P.S. A full bottles okay, as long as its next to a dozen empty ones

    his outstanding speech yesterday in content and delivery, his address to the banqueting hall and his general behaviour have increased my opinion of him. contrast the funny and well-orated speech, the civilised and well-mannered occasion, with the foul idiots outside, abusing police officers and burning the american flag. i felt thoroughly ashamed watching that with american friends. luckily, they were a minority.

    i particuarly enjoyed.. "The British people are the sort of partners you want when serious work needs doing...And America is fortunate to call this country our closest friend in the world.".

    his reference to leaders with backbone was rather amusing bearing in mind the obvious French opinion.
    You have, predictably, fallen for his rhetoric.

    sorry - did you say "politicians with conviction"?

    i think you'll find they all quit when they find out nobody cares what they think any more (example robin cook etc)

    The protest today was great! Had a very interesting converstation with a socialist who was there.. although I didn't agree with all of his views. I don't think Bush or Blair could have ignored the protest.. it was HUGE!

    Yeah but even if it didn't stop the war it indirectly led to other things that have caused a major thorn in Blair side.. like the Hutton Inquiry and minister resignations..

    Besides you never know.. Blair might suddenly decide to stop being a w*nker and actually listen to us.. lol.. someday..

    Er.. you were embarrassed that the british actually took a stance against corrupt authority? I think that something you should be proud of

    I feel sorry for the thousands of people that are gonna have to go with out a lot of stuff due to the cost of the "spectacular"...It's sickening how people can be so selfish, all the things they did today, all the mess they made, the writing on the floor of trafalfar square, the fires they started....that doesn't go away for free, people are paid for that and that money is coming outta the government, that money could have paid for the staff at hospitals so sorely needed or money that could of gone towards bringing back student grants. Shame on you

    Corrupt authority? Please I'm not an anarchist, anarchy is what u get when you have a country full of stupid people with no discipline...yeah sure blair and bush have made some rash desicions but they were elected.....and that was up to you and your parents.
    You may say your parents and you didn't elect them well someone bloody well did...and they seem to be a majority
