Signing off

Right, that’s more than enough blogging for one year - I’m off to the pub shortly. A splendid, entertaining and prosperous New Year is wished to almost all who have called into this part of Blogotá since April, especially my regulars, but also to occasional posters, long time lurkers (dive in, the more the merrier), short term lurkers (ditto), googlers, blog stumblers etc. However, may blog spammers choke on their diet pills, prescription drugs etc etc.

Hope to see you all for more of the same tomorrow next year.

Rigger - Sounds like something I could drink to. It's already 2007 over there. How is it going so far?

I just posted this on Boris on the subject of capital punishment . Ironically its about the only place I can be sure of not runing into to axe man.Hmmm.

"Not well said Idlex .There are levels of knowing Looking and seeing , recall and memory to some there is no difference but there are profound differences We know we will not live forever and yet we spend out time lost in the modern illusion of immortality the physical reality of death is hidden , tidied away and this is part of the ubiquitous superficiality of modern preoccupations .
We know that murder is bad but an imaginative empathy with the victim cannot be attained without the greatest effort . We would rather not make that effort we would rather the outcome was tidied away into a room where we cannot see it . The dead cannot complain and the families of the dead can do little .
This is convenient, actually it is cheap , and it is wrong .

I do not seriously expect capital punishment to be brought back to this country despite the clear wish of the majority that it should be .I have however found it amusing that the worst thing about killing Saddaam , it would appear , is that we have "seen " it . In this I see an echo of the moral malaise of this country from which much else follows.

It isn't right but it seems to make everyone comfortable (temporarily) .Exactly what I detest about Tony Blair. Killing a person who deserves to be dead is an unpleasant duty not a vicious or barbaric act. It is an expression of love.

Having concluded the debate and knocked Idlex into a cocked hat I will be returning to gags and smutty innuendo post haste . I `m afraid none of you will ever be as good and fine a human being as me !!

My resolution for the new year is continue to be a much better person than everyone else and take the time to appreciate my own qualities.

good point about peoples only real complaint being the fact that they had to witness something as squalid as an execution.
perhaps if a people in this country knew what it was like to be Iraqis who have had their children killed by us/uk missiles we could get enough together and arrest blair and try him as a war criminal. As it is taint going to happen, we are a herd of bovines farmed by the parasites who claim to represent us.

Baby mortice did not realise it was new year and that Dad wanted a nights sleep.

Today's the last day of their barbaric hadj and not a single little stampede. Not one single dead muslim. Personally, I think people should honour their traditions. It's a shame to lose the old ways.

Everytime some disaster befell our Islamic friends floods, earthquakes, stampedes etc. my Grandfather would always laugh and say
"All that praying and he keeps doing things that like to them, I don't think Allah likes Muslims"
The great man probably wants some peace and quiet during the week not a mass ear bashing 5 times a day from a bunch of shiftless camel jockeys.

New Year here hot - 78.

But for once, the Mexicans are quiet. They tend to push the boat out for New Year and don't get up until around noon. The one day of the year they are quiet. Normal service will resume around 1 p.m.

Death to the BBC and just when I start to wonder if I `m imagining it I listen to their coverage of all our new EU chums

"membership leads to wealth"...just a statement.So of course does non -membership , in Europe and for us almost certainly the reverse but, no no ,all of this can be boiled down to a nice simple sentence . "Membership leads to wealth"...and a lot more tenditious baloney.
