I have got about as much work on right now as Egypt’s tourism board and I would apologise for not keeping a regular post going. I would, if i knew more than four people were listening. Alas.
Anyway, as I am almost entirely certain you are aware, Mubarak has gone and it is my opinion that his handing over of power to the military will almost certainly spawn a plucky General with enough support to launch a successful coup d’etat and lowe and behold back to square one. Call my a cynic, but I will always go with historical weight of numbers.
What I was most
surprised, sorry that’s the wrong word. I am never surprised by anything America does. What I was most outraged by, was Hillary Clinton’s attempt to claim that Mubarak should not have been ousted so quickly in the name of the pursuit of ‘stability’ and a good ‘transition.’ Another line in a long list of the West’s prop ups for their puppet in the Middle East. Surely, unless America has secretly developed time travel the debate on the timetable of Mubarak’s departure is an entirely redundant one anyway? Hillary Clinton doesn’t think so. But then, she also though it was a good idea to stick with Bill after the whole Monica Lewinsky thing but hey, water under the bridge I’m sure. Anyway I digress.
What I’m really aiming for here is more people actually listening, the reason why I write this is to provoke debate and responses. I feel like quite like Ed Miliband; knowing that you have absolutely no say in what goes on. Anyway, thank you for listening, as usual.
If we are in a bar and you want to go out and smoke, do not use me as a paperweight for your stuff. It’s about as emotionally debilitating as the cancer you are likely to get.

This only further legitimises the coalition. I would suggest a caption competition, but it would usher in a rain of golden comedy that should be saved for a panel show on the BBC. Needless to say; Don’t hassle the ‘Hoff.

Hello, yes i do sleep, though not at the same times as most people. I am taking care of myself as best I can. Thank you very much, opinions only a mother could love.
People talk about spirit as though they are disaffected;
'It's hard to muster, to be empowered about much to be honest.'
I must be the only person in a T-shirt in this city. The clouds menace overhead.
Yet these people, flock to the taverns and public houses in their droves,
They sit under parasols in false hope. And enjoy the dregs of the week in a glass, lively, chatty, enchanted by Friday’s promise.
I have been listening to this whilst studying the policy of British appeasement in connection with the Second World War, It’s oddly apt.
This is only going to be a breif musing.
The wind in London today makes the place feel chaotic, not at ease with itself. Obviously, though, not as chaotic as Egypt is currently. Through all the rhetoric and probable lies that have emerged over the past couple of days I do have this to say. Whislt i completely agree with the people uprising against their plight and a despotic leader, I couldn’t help but smile last night when I saw on a Sky News ticker feed that President Mubarak was afraid to step down over fears that ‘The long banned Muslim Brotherhood’ would sieze power. I thought this was very clever, obviously, it will terrify the west due to their immediate irrational fear of anything with the word ‘muslim’ attached to it. Believing it will open to the door to all types of radical extremists to use Egypt as a Premier Travel Inn. Perhaps he may buy himself a little bit of time to do something to quell this rebellion. Taking advantage of Western prejudice, nice. That said, don’t be a despot, people like freedom. In spite of all the rhetoric I hope that the people of Egypt do continue to fight opression, it’s a worthy cause.
