"I went to see Chubby Brown a few weeks ago".
Well that explains a lot.

I went to see Chubby Brown a few weeks ago. As soon as he came on stage I started shouting "You fat bastard! You fat bastard!"
Then I was told by security that that sort of behaviour wasn't tolerated at the Labour party conference.

""Backwoodsman - The legislation used to do this was passed to attack terrorist finances. As such this is a despicable "mission creep" of legislation that makes a mockery of all the so called anti-terrorism laws passed in recent years showing that the government and its agencies will use these laws against their own citizens and others at the drop of a hat. But of courst the innocent have nothing to fear!!!!""

With all due respect, Dazbo, that is a seriously slanted half truth, and is the major cause of Skarpi's anger.

The legislation referred to was enacted to make it possible for the government of the UK to freeze, and/or seize funds and property acquired through, or used to finance both terrorism, AND ORGANISED CRIME.

Since funds were being swiftly transferred out of the reach of the UK government, it was reasonable to act under this legislation to keep said funds in place while negotiating a resolution. The terrorist aspect of the legislation did not enter into the action taken, but was used by gutter journalists to stir up a reaction to sell newspapers.

Skarpi, don't let this media nonsense colour your opinion of us, or lead to anti British feeling.

Don't forget that Gordon Brown DOES NOT speak for us. We didn't elect him to the post of Prime Minister, and I pray to God we won't do so at the next election.

He is desperately trying to cover up his inadequacies with bluster, but few, if any, of us are fooled.

This WILL get sorted out, in spite of Brown.

Don T.

Just intercepted this message:

Skarpi,

Stop hiding in the freezer cabinet. Me and the lads are coming round to see you, and you better pay up!
If you don't, it won't be pleasant.
'Pretty Boy' Peter Mandelson will hit you with his handbag, and then 'Big' John Prescott (motto: Mines a large one!) will sit on you.

These boys don't mess about! (well they do.... but they've promised not to, on this occasion)

You can keep the bag of tomatoes, but we need the three quid.

Carol, Sorcha - it's not predatory behaviour or organised crime, it's Business, B-I-Z-N-E-S-S, fuelled by the GREED OF PEOPLE (sorry, not shouting, just don't know much about html so can't italicise). Not just the fat-cats at the top with their multi-million-dollar bonuses, but all the way down to you and me (and maybe even further down). It's what Capitalism and Conservatism rely on - the desire to own things, pile up cash, have a big house, go on expensive holidays, look 'better' than our neighbour, etc., etc.. And it will never change because, at the bottom of them, most people are greedy and want more and more for less and less.

It's a version of pyramid-selling at its worst that's done the damage, and our Global-Get-Rich-Quick society went for it all the way.

And any national leader worth his salt should, and will, take steps to protect his citizens, even though it may disadvantage the citizens of other countries temporarily. Brown was perfectly entitled to take steps to protect British interests, and the Icelandic Premier is right to fight back. Time will determine the outcome, one way or the other.

Charity begins at home.

All of the above IMHO, as always.

The enemy here isn't the people of Iceland. They didn't get either the British or themselves (or the rest of Europe, or the rest of the world) into this.

The people to look coldly at are the banks, for their reckless behaviour, and the currency dealers, for their... I don't have any languge to express it.
