Blair's bombs

Terror and the UK - The senseless repercussions of interventions in Afghanistan, Iraq and Palestine demand that we renew our anger at our leaders. Our troops must come home. We owe it to all those who died in London on 7 July. By John Pilger"

Have you not noticed? The world is falling apart.

Among those I admire on the public stage perhaps the most important is John Humphries of the BBC Today Programme.

After telling us it was April in the first hour he told us it was October in the second. At nine o-clock as the programme closed he explained it to us. "It's because I am going mad" he said.

If the voice of reason and sanity and intelligence is becomming mad, what hope is there for the rest of us.

This country is collapsing rapidly into a police state run by a war criminal.

But we submit meekly. Only a few voices like Pilger's continue to tell the story as it is.
