Bloody, Difficult and Embarrassing

In a characteristic gesture of respect to the victims of yesterday's terrorist attack, the dead-eyed warden of HM Prison UK has suspended election campaigning after the usual fashion, by giving a policy speech. Since there are no plans to restore the cuts she made to the police (she thinks we can best fight terrorism by reducing the police to those 1970s levels which the IRA found so convenient), there will need to be censorship of the internet and increased profits for those efficient people at Serco and G4S. The dead-eyed warden denounced the ideology of Islamist terrorism as a "perversion of Islam and a perversion of the truth" which cannot be defeated by wog-bombing alone; but she seems to have been a bit reticent on what is to be gained by selling weapons to the head-chopping House of Saud, which is the biggest, richest and most influential sponsor of that same ideology.

Besides the usual casual insult ("tribute" in Newspeak) to the police and emergency services which her government has been kicking to pieces for the past seven years, the dead-eyed warden clunked into headmistress-at-morning-assembly mode and lectured the public for being too tolerant of the enemy within. From Muslims who show insufficient enthusiasm in spying on their neighbours, to teachers who seem to think the necessity of feeding their charges outweighs that of denouncing them to MI5, everyone needs to be far more robust and engage in some "difficult, and often embarrassing, conversations." It remains to be seen how many such conversations will be sufficiently embarrassing to include the question of who was in government, and who was Home Secretary, while all this ghastly tolerance was going on.
