Voldemort attacks Lib Dems, PR.

Posted by Jason O on May 5, 2010 in British Politics, Not quite serious.

Dave's all right: Voldemort

Dave's all right: Voldemort

Dark Wizard Voldemort has come out in favour of the Tories, and launched a vicious attack on Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg. “Let us be clear!” You-Know-Who told the Daily Mail “A vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote for half-bloods and giving muggles parliamentary representation. If Clegg gets in, all sorts of riff raff and rabble will have their votes counted. At least David Cameron knows that first past the post ensures that only the proper sort of person gets their vote counted.” The Dark Wizard, a member of the Bullingdon Club with the Tory leader, admitted that he always knew that Cameron would rise to power. “Ever since he sacrificed that goat to the dark god Baal, and danced in its spurting blood  chanting demonic incantations. Boris tried it too, but slipped on a goat spleen and cracked his bonce off a bidet. Didn’t get that goat spleen stain out of his jacket either.”

Reality punches Greece in the face.

Posted by Jason O on May 5, 2010 in European Union

Greece: Mugged by reality.

Greece: Mugged by reality.

Watching a news report on the demonstrations in Greece, I was struck by the comments of one of the demonstrators, a teacher, who pledged that they will strike for years if necessary “until the IMF and the European Union are out of Greece”

This really struck me, because it made me wonder as to whether the Greek people have quite grasped their situation. Admittedly, it was only the remarks of a single Greek, but quite chilling in what it suggested. She seemed to believe that the cuts were because of some sort of EU/IMF diktat (you know, the way we lend 110 billion euro for a laugh) as opposed to the fact that her country had basically maxed out its credit card and was now furious that other people will not pay the bill.

Are we, as the EU, going to be blamed by the Greek people for making them cop on?
