I resolve not to believe or to cooperate in making others believe;

-that Blair, or indeed Howard, Kennedy & many of their followers, arn't, by the standards we hung people for at Nuremberg, guilty of war crimes & crimes against humanity over Yugoslavia & to a lesser extent,Iraq.

- that Blair sincerely believes anything he says.

- that the UK has the world's 4th biggest economy.

- that the disposal of nuclear waste, or anything else to do with nuclear power, is a serious problem.

- that our government is not knowingly involved in promoting child sex slavery (in Kossovo & possibly elsewhere).

- that our economy is successful in world, rather than just EU, terms.

- that Christian leaders are sincere Christians (as in the Pope supporting genocide as a method of spreading the "one true faith" & the Moderator fabricating racist stories about Serbs similar to the earlier claim that Jews were sacrificing Christian children).

- that any party is seriously committed to ending poverty (by increasing growth which is the only way it can be done).

- that crime is decreasing.

- that any party is seriously trying to stop it (stopping crime & invasion are the 2 prime duties of government but frightening people is more profitable).

- that CO2 global warming is anything other than a hypothesis at variance with observed fact.

- that this justifies more government controls on our lives.

- that al Quaeda has killed more people worldwide than die annually in Britain because of the unnecessarily high cost of "alternative" power.

- that this justifies more government controls on our lives.

- that the Bilderberg Group is just a bunch of private citizens who happen to run countries, own media empires & run financial conglomerates, who get together for a weekend's golf & never conspire against us.

- that our media haven't deliberately lied over the last 14 years to help people they knew to be engaged in genocide (Croatians, Bosnian ex-SS, KLA).

- that they can be trusted not to do so for the next 14.

- that the government's most solemn promise is worth the paper it is written on (by clause 1 section 1 of the Helsinki treaty we have undertaken to "take no action against the territorial integrity & unity of, among others, Yugoslavia" & that is the most long negotiated & publicly affirmed promise our government ever made).

Smoking in prison

Letter in Thursday's Scotsman - I would like to say that the original was slightly longer & that by cutting to the chase the letters editor has improved it:

There is some annoyance, even among supporters of a smoking ban, that prisoners will be allowed to smoke. But anyone who wants them punished should be happy that they will not benefit from this kindly measure.

Indeed, allowing them to smoke could be challenged on the grounds that it is a cruel punishment not given by the court. It is astonishing that any supporters of the ban should so misunderstand their own motivation that they think excusing prisoners from it is being soft on them.
