Blair in UK joins Howard in Oz & Bush Stateside post-Iraq War election victory
Excellent result for me, a one issue wog who supports democratic nations removing despots from power in undemocratic nations wherever they may be found, including and especially in the Middle east which is the source of the world's major 21st C problem - fanatic Islamofacism.
So Anthony is my man.
Tim Blair does the linky thing of the silly Economist magazine cover, which was silly, even though hindsight seems a cruel measure. But it is fair cos they did endorse John Kerry in the US and they always call Howard in Oz some sort of facist and Berlusconi in Italy some sort of media monopolising maniac so it has become apparent that the editorial team just wanted to see Howard and Bush and Blair lose, to fo with their pathtic question mark.
Well, a big old wog salute to them - now, back to the UK Election.
There was one awful result I reckon - in Bethnal Green & Bow, the East End of London.
The strongly working class white and Bangladeshi Muslim community has voted for George Galloway of the Respect Party by a margin of 803 votes (I think) over his nearest rival, a Labour party pro-war MP named Oona King who is half Black American and half Jewish English.
There has been quite a bit of gnashing of teeth over the Respect result in the Brit Blogosphere. Check this Stephen Pollard post which links to Harry and Oliver Kamm as well. You will get the flavour of disappointment over that result.
But what I reckon, cruising through comments and posts is that this is a case of toxic wogs.
I bin trying all afternoon to collect my thoughts and post about toxic wogs and block voting and stuff.
Cannot do it. Cannot do it justice, sorry. Gonna have to think about all this tomorrow maybe.
