Bed-time for Democracy

Oh my god.

Read this.

Bush wants to bomb an allied country to rid himself of the pesky problem of its free press, Blair mercifully talks him out of this. Britain's newspapers get wind of the story; Blair threatens them with court action if they publish. I suppose we can be thankful that he didn't bomb; but, nonetheless, democracies are only as good as the information flows within them. Accordingly, England's democracy is starting to look a little shaky.

Meanwhile in the USA, republican lobbyists are buying votes.

Race to the bottom anyone?

Msybe he meant suicide bomb. Anyway, personally I find it had to see that he meant it as is implied.
