Unfortunately most of my colleagues have no idea about this blog or other great blogs that tell the truth (Biased BBC for instance). I have pointed out that the blogs I read are the truth behind the media and well researched. They seem to think that blogs are written by sad lonely types whose only friend is a computer. I try to be patient and say 'just go and look for yourself'. Alas, Celebrity Ice Dancing seems to take precedence in many lives.

I have posted many times here on the apathy theme...all my good lovable, intelligent (I'm beginning to wonder) friends are much the same as tso describes although it's the comfy bubble in which they live which is their opiate & not the likes of Simon Cowell et al.
Folk simply do not wish to know.
Only an event, or a series of events, which is personally devastating is likely to shake the elecorate out of its torpor...the tocsin has been sounding for years but no heed has been taken.
Of course, everyone will be surprised when the Damocletian sword rips his guts out.
.....and ye'll cry "Laird, Laird we didn'a ken!"
....and the Laird, in his infinite mercy, will reply "Well, ye ken the noo!"
