From time to time I make the odd comment on matters political - well in my youth in the Liberal Party I did the odd bit! So two comments tonight.
Firstly, wur Justice mannie, Kenny MacCatskills-mountain-high has let the Libyan loon convicted of the Lockerbie bombing out of jail on compassionate grounds (Muhhamad Al wossiface being in the process of going to have a chat with Allah via prostate cancer). Billary Rodham Clinton (aka the one Yank cabinet member who has noticed there are other countries in the world apart from POTUS) is not a happy quine. Whilst deploring the Justice ministers dithering earlier in the week, I think his decision was the right one and it was right and indeed courageous of him to choose not to reduce justice to a bare concept of retribution. I am no great fan of the US Justice system at the moment, due to the appalling case of a Texas appeal judge refusing to hear a last minute plea for a stay of execution because she wanted to get home for a workman. The Times noted that she was a Republican appointment - is that an excuse? Oh, that and having heard a Fringe show on Rendition. Land of the Free?
Secondly, praise God for Glesga Cooncil! The Weegie City Faithers have voted to severely reduce the number of Orange Walks in the city from over 200 p.a. to 20. About time too. I dislike the LOL and what it stands for. However, I acknowledge their right to assembly peacefully and celebrate their "culture". But 200 walks? As opposed to 20 Republican waddles. And the Polis budget running amok - no, this is a right and overdue decision. Three cheers for the Weegie Cooncil!
