"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."

They Think It's All Over...

... but there's still some way to go.  It is now.

President Assad shot by a bodyguard.  Apparently he's been hospitalised...

And as I type, it's all been updated.  Assad has gone from serious but okay to serious and dead in a matter of moments.

What now for the 'Jasmine Revolution'?


As you were: It's true, it isn't true...   oh, yes it is, oh, no it isn't.....  I don't know why I bother.  I might as well go out, buy a onesie, stock up on chocolates and ready-made microwave meals from Tesco (other supermarkets are available), slam up the central heating and the volume on the tv and just ignore every knock on my door.

Still, it made for an exciting five minutes, especially since it happened at exactly the same time reports were coming in that President Anastasiades of Cyprus has threatened to resign in the face of Troika intractability.

  1. Now finally some good news. Man, I was as tired of seeing that * in the news as I was chavez.

    Maybe things are getting better.
