Sneaky Peek From Alastair "Crowley" MacDonald's Diary Vol 2

So unpopular with the public was Tony Blair that there was real fear that he might be lynched when he visited our troops in Afghanistan. For public relations and fritness reasons it was impossible to surround him with armed Met Police. "Sarf' of the Thames, no way, Guv. Besides them Squaddies shoot back." Consequently, a secret plan was hatched by successive Defence Secretaries, the Chancellor of the Exchequer and Army top brass to deny ammunition and, where possible, shooty guns in Afghanistan, by means of the logistics supply system. In return, jobs would be guaranteed for Brigadiers and above and spending would be increased on horses (must have more horses than helicopters) and big green tanky things in case Russia had to be invaded.

Whoa! Main Street, Spookyville or what? Did I actually mention the name of The Dark Lord, The Cloven Hooved One, (Damien - I'm scaring myself now)MacBride's Predecessor? Your anti-litigation garlic must be industrial strength. That post is an excellent reason for me and the other reader of this blog to delve into the archives at Weasel Towers. Unlike in all the films I've seen, I'm waiting until daybreak.
