Dum de dum de dum
Still waiting for the CCTV footage of the four bombers at Kings Cross…
Surely it doesn’t take that long to edit and enhance a few seconds of tape?
OK, so it’s looking like the ‘suicide bombers’ might have been ‘homocide bombers’.
It seems that the thought of suicide bombers buying return tickets rather than single tickets is going to be too much for some people to swallow.
Personally, I don’t think that is a killer piece of information. After all, if you are planning to kill yourself and sentence your loved ones to a lifetime of stigma why would you care about paying too much for a railway ticket? What the fuck? You’re not going to be around when the credit card statement lands on the doormat. Why not first class tickets and a little something from the train buffet whilst you’re at it? How about hiring a Ferrari for the day? Be a big tipper. Live a little.
Anyway, the suicide bomber story looks like it might be publicly acknowledged as nonsense. It always was actually but that’s by the by.
So, a new version of the story is therefore needed for the week ahead. Plan B if the suicide story finally dies a death.
How about …
They were still insane bombers and not dupes, obviously, and the thought they were going to set their bombs and get away. Only their shadowy, white cat-stroking mastermind fooled them by setting the fuses short?
Nope. Still self-evidently bollocks. Maybe we can discuss why another time. Let’s just wait and see if the authorities do dump the suicide bomber story. And, by the way, when police spokespeople say, as they have done these last couple of days, that the police have never publicly stated that the London bombings were suicide bombings that’s a straightforward lie. Sir Ian Blair, the head of London's Metropolitan Police, said last Thursday that the attacks had been suicide bombings. "They went on to those Tubes or bus to kill, and presumably accepted they would be killed," he said. "You don't need to be a suicide bomber in a liberal democracy. They've chosen to be."
Based on what the public have been fed to date, I smell a rat, a large one. It could be deliberate deceit or simply blinkered thinking. At present, there’s no way to be really sure.
My dearest wish is that people in the middle ranks of the police and security forces will finally have enough and call time on this nonsense. Though any public servant familiar with the stories of David Kelly or Craig Murray, the British Ambassador to Uzbekistan who was hounded out of the Civil Service after reporting that intelligence information coming from the Uzbek government was rubbish and extracted by boiling suspects alive, will think twice about doing the decent thing.
Of course, the contribution that bloggers have made to the debate about the London Bombings also deserves a mention.
It’s like bloody 911 all over again.
OK, so there are flaws in the story we’re being told by the British Government and Security Forces. They’re being suspiciously selective about the evidence that they’re making public. There are examples of unattributed disinformation being planted in the media every day.
So, do the Liberal Left Wing, conspiratorial-minded bloggers restrict themselves to challenging the obvious deficiencies in what the police and government are saying? Are they pressing the authorities to do what they are paid to do? Hunt down those responsible for the bombings with an open mind as to who committed them and why?
Of course not.
Every frickin’ site out there has its own version of how the London bombings were executed and which shadowy organisation is responsible.
All are bollocks. Some just moderately bollocks, most are completely bollocks.
They have to be. The public is deprived of so much information and what information that is available is so confused there’s no way anyone can figure out ‘what really happened’.
But that hasn’t stopped the bloggers. No sirree. Committing exactly the same sins as those they criticise, they embark on a series on self-indulgent, unsupported speculations peppered with words like ‘obvious’ and ‘surely’ to describe flawed conclusions that are neither obvious nor sure. Hands up anyone who has any actual proof the Israelis planned the bombing. They probably have benefitted from it. They certainly have the means. But that’s not proof. Ditto for the American Government, the CIA, the British Government, whoever short-sold Sterling for ten days before the bombing and made a lot of money that morning, British Racists or Space Lizards.
I despair. Truly I do.
That’s the problem with so much of the ‘Left’. It is so conspicuously lacking in single mindedness of purpose and intellectual rigour. Things haven’t changed at all since the days of the Spanish Civil War when the Republicans spent as much time killing each other as fighting the Fascists. Fascists may be morally deficient but they’re never so intellectually handicapped as to argue amongst themselves or attack the wrong side.
F*ck it. Do you know what? If a spook came knocking on my door tomorrow and asked me to work for Them I’d bloody well think about it.
(That's an offer by the way)
