This...Is London

D. W. Drang links to yet another tale of adults-treated-as-toddlers, sharp-object phobia from the UK. This is gettin' ridiculous; I expect every day to read that ordinary Britons have taken to wrapping up their nanny-bureaucrats in cotton wool, excelsior and bubblewrap and mailing them off to disused oil platforms and Maunsell Sea Forts for everyone's own good. But I dream.

(Blogheadline stolen from this guy, who could put you right there using nothing but a microphone, his mind and his voice and who showed the world the tough, commonsense side of those important islands, long, long ago).

It's sad that after so many lives were lost or damaged keeping the Nazis from invading Britain, they voluntarily went fascist anyway.

That (formerly) Great Britain now raises our anxiety levels is an indicator of how vigilant we must be on this side of the pond. To think that in 64 short years, what was Great has become nothing more than the stuff of bad dreams writ large.

Bow our heads, folks. The (formerly) Great Britain of England, Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland is no more.

But ... to hear Morrow's voice of their time of triumph. Chills!
