Reference

Today eight British soldiers were killed in Afghanistan, which brings the total number of British troops killed there to more than the total number of those killed in Iraq. This is the “hype” man’s “new, old” war and the hype on the UK home front? There was some stupid general talking on television about a military and political solution being required and the sad thing is that Joe Soap’s receptive skills are so honed that phrases like this get embedded in his mind only to reappear in the shape of his exopheric reference. Glasgow a pleasant enough city, however, not only has my own reference shifted, theirs has not even stagnated; in a world of cappuccino and gobblydegook it has actually regressed. We used to talk “shite” here but we knew that we were talking “shite” and we liked it.

There are a lot of poor bastards out there being used and abused; it is just not cricket "old bean". Something tells me that ignorance is not bliss, but is, in fact, simply ignorance and in the global village we cannot look the other way.
