"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Pittsburgh According To Newsnight

"This great post-industrialist, post-modernist, mid-western city of Pittsburgh ... is more or less boarded up and most of the population have left, so that didn't go according to plan."

The G20, salting the ground wherever they go.

PS - Did anyone else notice Barack Obama introducing Gordon Brown as "The Distinguished Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, His Excellency The Right Honourable Gordon Brown?"

His Excellency? Distinguished? Has anyone informed the Monarch? Has anyone told us that Brown's been elevated?

Fecking f/wits all. Yoga class tomorrow so I thankfully won't be around to listen to this sort of uninformed rubbish. Where the heck was the Protocol Dept of the FCO?

  1. Sounded to me more like 'His Excrescency the Right Horrible Gordon Brown' ... Still, Obama did find 22 seconds of talking time for Brown as he walked through a kitchen.

  2. :) I wonder how they ended up in the kitchen - perhaps they got lost.
