I'm off for a bit. Have fun without me. I will. In the meantime...
You're not having my DNA. I'd love to be able to trust the authorities with my DNA, but I really don't think I can; I'd say there's a reasonable chance it might 'accidentally' get left on the system. It won't solve this ongoing murder inquiry because the guilty guy isn't going to go strolling into the cop shop with his gob open, demanding someone shove a cotton bud in there. I don't think it is only the guilty who have something to fear, I'm afraid.
I don't think Sarah Palin is responsible for the gun attack at the weekend. Responsible for edits on her Facebook page that mean criticism of her is deleted and criticism of a nine-year-old dead kid stays up (albeit a comment with heavy, heavy irony, yes yes I know)? Well I don't even know if she's responsible for that. She's a big fan of guns and yes, put targets up on political opponents, but there's a bit of a bus ride from that to saying she was advocating someone go and shoot them. Which isn't to say she's not despicable, because she is; it's just that she's not responsible for that, and I think it damages the cause of liberals to say that she is.
We're all allowed to talk about stuff that's far away. You might say, oh well what do you know about US politics? Why are you allowed to comment? To which I would answer, well shall we all just give up then, unless we're sitting across the road from something? Shall we all just remove ourselves from any meaningful debate unless we can see what's going on with our own eyes? I'm just down the road from the Bristol murder and many thousands of miles from a shooting in Arizona; but that doesn't mean I can only talk about one of them.
'He's not that type of player' is the kind of thing you hear all the time about some footballer who's just gone ploughing into to someone's ankle with their studs up. Oh, Steve Gerrard didn't mean it, he's a good player. Oh, Paul Scholes didn't mean it; he just hasn't learned to tackle despite all those years of being a professional footballer. Oh, Howard Webb must have taken a bribe to give those decisions. No. Gerrard deserved to get sent off because it was a dirty tackle; that's the top and bottom of it.
K*nn*th T*ng is a truly awful human being, but I don't want to see him banned from Twitter, or anywhere. If anything, seeing such a bumwipe campaigning for anorexia is exactly the sort of thing that should make any right-thinking person reach for a slab of Dairy Milk. His miserable craving for minor celebrity is probably being satisfied by being a hate-figure, though, so the best thing to do is ignore him. Or force-feed him cake. Actually, just ignore him.
Anyway, look, that's it for now. I'm off.
