We will fight them on the keyboards; we will fight them on the couches; We will never surrender!

It’s times like these I really want a magic wand.

A magic wand, so that when I read piffle like this from the likes of Malkin, Barnett, Derbyshire and “Rob”, and all the rest of the keyboard kommandos, mousepad marines, wikipedia warriors, cursor captains, paralinkers and swivel-chair generals”, I can magick them into the bodies of actual captives in a real-life hostage situation like this.

If I’m feeling nice, I’ll magick them a clean pair of trousers in a couple of days.

    bombs to get oil control.
    and big big government contracts.
    and his company BAE Systems has an office in Melbourne on the Yarra near Swan St.
    and he is a director of Reuters News Agency and can
    therefore censor bad news about himself.
    The Guardian just put his CEO Mike Turner on their list of Most Influential Britons

  • just checking my link … they don’t call them bombs though – ‘canisters’ sounds so much nicer. Like Rice Flour Sugar, except –
