binidj: (Doom song)
Splendid news highlight in Google news today gave me a laugh Go Tony!

While I normally have every respect for Greenpeace, this tactic was never going to work ... hopefully they'll grow up a bit now and think about how to make a difference effectively instead of sensationally.
It struck me recently, that only protest is ever really measured ... you never saw anyone demonstrating that the Gulf War was a good thing for example but the people saying it was a bad thing got loads of press because they were making a noise about it. This is fair enough, free speech is a good thing in my opinion but I've decided that the time has come to make a stand (however insignificant) to give assent and support to ideas which other people may be campaigning about.

If you feel as I do, please cut and paste this image ... if you could host it yourself that would be especially nice.

Now while I welcome discussion, I don't think that this is a good forum for it so if you want to discuss my politics at length I invite you to do so in person rather than here. Comments on the validity of positive assent however are welcomed (since I suspect that such a discussion will be less likely to be either as impassioned or as lengthy).
Politics test results )
Really quite accurate, though being told I have the same politics as John Paul II is somewhat surprising. By the way, in the photo version who is the guy just above Osama Bin Laden? He's a dish!
