Here We Are Again

If I were a cleaner or a dinner lady at the British Embassy in Moscow, then I would be taking my annual leave right about now.

The biggest scandal of all is that Boris Johnson was appointed on the understanding that he would come out with this kind of thing. "For a laugh." Theresa May deserves very severe criticism for that.

The neocon nutters are out in force today.

To attack the people who were right about Afghanistan, who were right about Iraq, who were right about Libya, and who are obviously right about Syria. And about Yemen, come to that.

Unless you were as right as they were about Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, then you have no right to criticise or insult them.

Why should we believe a word about Syria from the Start the War Coalition? 

Remember the lies about Benghazi. Remember the lies about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction. Remember the lies about Afghanistan and the events of 11th September 2001.

Yet here we are again in the run-up to the Iraq War, when the people who were obviously right were screamed down as traitors, anti-Semites, and all the rest.

But we were still right. Who now denies it?

And we are right again this time.


  1. Why is The Stop the War Coalition is mysteriously absent from the Russian Embassy following Russian bombing and atrocities in Aleppo? Yet they are the first to protest whenever anyone suggests "the West" go to war.

    It's not anti war movement; it bring disgrace on that movement.

    1. The neocon nutters are out in force today. Stop it, you are making me nostalgic. Here we are again in the run-up to the Iraq War.

  2. If Boris Johnson's hysterical Russophobia results in harm coming to any British diplomat abroad, he should be held personally accountable.

    1. I would extend that to anyone on the staff of a British diplomatic mission, or to any British passport-holder, or indeed to anyone at all.

      The Russians, at the request of the Syrian Government, are fighting IS. They may not exactly be the good guys, but they are certainly the least bad guys.

  3. Was Theresa May right to name the date when we'll invoke Article 50, sending the pound plumetting?

    1. She's not going to do it, anyway.

      The pound was overvalued before. But on topic, please.
