The Cross and British Airways
I did blog on this a day or to ago, but I wasn't happy with my take on it, or rather how I presented my argument, so I scrubbed it. However Andrew at WongaBlog has put the argument I follow rather well!
It's all dicey and we need to look carefully, but if in doubt over these cases (as a Journalist put it the other day) Qui Bono! President Putin was recently in the middle of a summit meeting, if he was behind this, would he really want the finger pointed at him during this time? Because, let's face it, the Russian governmentt would always be prime suspects in such a case. Mind you, if it was due to some radicals in the FSB I would not be surprised!
Liberal Democrat advertisment?
Spending most of my time during the 2005 general election knocking on doors, leafleting, arranging campaign packages for local wards in Hemel Hempstead, I didn't catch this ad (courtesy of YouTube). Does anyone know anything about it, and if it is a genuine ad by the Liberal Democrats then I am disgusted for two reasons.
1) It plays a "holier than thou" image in compariosn to the other main parties on the NHS, and yet by doing this they have made themselves hypocrites!
2) I can see it is meant to be funny, but I for one would never accuse individual Tories or Lib Dems about not caring about the NHS, even though I would argue as to the merits of their own solutions.
