America's Guilt: the Prisoners in a Legal Black Hole

The 600 Guantanamo Bay prisoners to my mind remain the single most difficult to justify act of the Allies since 9/11. I have yet to hear a single credible defense of this action.Having said that, I have also yet to hear a single credible alternative course of action suggested. … [Read more...]

A serious post…..

Whilst the current war for the Blogdom is clearly great fun and obviously preoccuying me tonight, in the course of my one man campaign for Blog domination, I came accros a post asking a vital question.... at Rick's Cafe Americain: "When is the War on Terror going to focus on Terror?"As the post goes on, it seems quite clear that some of the happenings since 9/11 are harder to justify than others. All I really argue in my all to serious post for the King of Blogs contest is that we do need to … [Read more...]

Instaking of Blogging?

A few months ago I called Joshua Claybourn the King of Christian Blogs This was because I genuinely believed it to be true, and did not despite rumours to the contrary comprise a pathetic attempt at self promotion by a lowly new blogger.Now a few months on, I have been mad enough to enter the first ever contest to be crowned the King of whole Blogdom.Now there is of course only one slight problem with that. InstaPundit otherwise known as Glenn Reynolds quite clearly is the Emporer of the … [Read more...]

Daniel Bedingfield and the Fame Academy final

There seems to be a lot of noise out there about how Daniel Bedingfield was supposed to have been rude to someone in the Fame Academy Final. One writer criticised "the way Daniel Bedingfield totally blanked him". I can't really comment on this, as I didn't watch the final, but I wonder whether the following quote gives any insight into this situation.....Daniel Bedingfield says childhood illness is inspiration: "Daniel said the chemical imbalances in his brain have been the key to his … [Read more...]

Michael Jackson accused

ChristWeb said: "Let's treat him like everyone else. I believe that if I was being charged with multiple accounts of child molestation that I would not be asked politely to return to the state at my earliest convenience to turn myself in. More than likely, there would be a group of armed police officers banging loudly on my hotel room door and dragging me unceremoniously through the lobby." … [Read more...]

Stuck in the middle……

In the UK we like to think of ourselves as somewhere between our geographical neighbours on the continent of Europe and our cultural and historical allies in the USA.When it comes to issues of Iraq and the war on terrorism, like my fellow countrymen, I find myself somewhat torn. There is no doubt that extreme views abound on this issue. Emotion rather than logic seems to prevail. I have little sympathy with extreme views on either side.On the one hand I reject thoroughly those who claim … [Read more...]
