Eastercon: Getting Psyched Up
Just to let you know that with just a coupla days till Eastercon I`m currently focussing heavily on the writing (including notes towards the project after Humanitys Fire). So there wont be a lot of blogging here until the Monday/Tuesday. But I would like to make mention of a couple of outstanding events which have surfaced from the mass-consensual news stream, 1st being the death of Ian Tomlinson during the G20 protests in London earlier a few days ago; video has surfaced, via the Guardian, showing that Tomlinson was shoved violently to the ground by a policeman a short while before he collapsed and died of a heart attack. I’ve seen the vidage and its horrible and shocking. I also saw another still of a police medic standing as part of a riot police barricade and holding a baton aloft – a medic! Suffice to say that it seems clear that London police are out of control and are starting to resemble the police in some of the less egalitarian parts of the world.
The other event concerns one Tony Blair, former prime minister of this benighted land, largely responsible for the despair and cynicism which now blight British politics, not least due to the way in which he lied relentlessly to get Britain involved in a war of aggression against the poverty-stricken, almost defenceless nation of Iraq. It appears that the Toothy One is in the running for president of the European Union – words fail me.
