    TOMMY, by Rudyard Kipling.

    I went into a public-‘ouse to get a pint o’ beer,
    The publican ‘e up an’ sez, “We serve no red-coats here.”
    The girls be’ind the bar they laughed an’ giggled fit to die,
    I outs into the street again an’ to myself sez I:
    O it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, go away”;
    But it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play,
    The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
    O it’s “Thank you, Mister Atkins”, when the band begins to play.

    I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
    They gave a drunk civilian room, but ‘adn’t none for me;
    They sent me to the gallery or round the music-‘alls,
    But when it comes to fightin’, Lord! they’ll shove me in the stalls!
    For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, wait outside”;
    But it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide,
    The troopship’s on the tide, my boys, the troopship’s on the tide,
    O it’s “Special train for Atkins” when the trooper’s on the tide.

    Yes, makin’ mock o’ uniforms that guard you while you sleep
    Is cheaper than them uniforms, an’ they’re starvation cheap;
    An’ hustlin’ drunken soldiers when they’re goin’ large a bit
    Is five times better business than paradin’ in full kit.
    Then it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, ‘ow’s yer soul?”
    But it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll,
    The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
    O it’s “Thin red line of ‘eroes” when the drums begin to roll.

    We aren’t no thin red ‘eroes, nor we aren’t no blackguards too,
    But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
    An’ if sometimes our conduck isn’t all your fancy paints,
    Why, single men in barricks don’t grow into plaster saints;
    While it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Tommy, fall be’ind”,
    But it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind,
    There’s trouble in the wind, my boys, there’s trouble in the wind,
    O it’s “Please to walk in front, sir”, when there’s trouble in the wind.

    You talk o’ better food for us, an’ schools, an’ fires, an’ all:
    We’ll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
    Don’t mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
    The Widow’s Uniform is not the soldier-man’s disgrace.
    For it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ “Chuck him out, the brute!”
    But it’s “Saviour of ‘is country” when the guns begin to shoot;
    An’ it’s Tommy this, an’ Tommy that, an’ anything you please;

    The Paragnostic says:

    And Kipling also wrote this:

    They shall not return to us, the resolute, the young,
    The eager and whole-hearted whom we gave:
    But the men who left them thriftily to die in their own dung,
    Shall they come with years and honour to the grave?

    They shall not return to us; the strong men coldly slain
    In sight of help denied from day to day:
    But the men who edged their agonies and chid them in their pain,
    Are they too strong and wise to put away?

    Our dead shall not return to us while Day and Night divide–
    Never while the bars of sunset hold.
    But the idle-minded overlings who quibbled while they died,
    Shall they thrust for high employments as of old?

    Shall we only threaten and be angry for an hour:
    When the storm is ended shall we find
    How softly but how swiftly they have sidled back to power
    By the favour and contrivance of their kind?

    Even while they soothe us, while they promise large amends,
    Even while they make a show of fear,
    Do they call upon their debtors, and take counsel with their
    friends,
    To conform and re-establish each career?

    Their lives cannot repay us–their death could not undo–
    The shame that they have laid upon our race.
    But the slothfulness that wasted and the arrogance that slew,
    Shell we leave it unabated in its place?

    http://bit.ly/9oZTeE

    You do need a bit more kit than that to ensure you hand-off correctly to a real GSM tower, but it’s definitely no urban myth. Note that the encryption can be turned off at will, in most cases without the target’s phone notifying them.

    You really need to read a bit more before you dismiss stuff as urban myths – please play again.

    I come not to bury billy but to condemn him with faint praise says:

    I’m sick of all this Billy bashing, Billy is one of US not one of THEM. Billy is a true libertarian, in that he’s always taking the liberty and his arse is anybody’s, probably just for a small libation at the most. (Haha, only joking Billy :)) Billy’s function on this blog is a cross between a court jester, an aunt sally, a scape goat and a fucking all round nuisance. He is like the piece of grit in an oyster which produces the pearl. He’s the new version of tat in a way, with the small caveat that he’s a nutter of a different colour, as it were. Tat was always being banned for the incessant posting of mostly bollocks, testing Guidos libertarian values to the limit, but with Billy I contend that Guido has proven those values beyond a doubt in that he’s given Billy free reign to express his unique pathology with the F5 button. Either that or he’s just too pissed to notice and/or just lost interest. Anyways, the truth remains that Billy has come here to learn from me and fellow windowlickers on this blog, and for that he must be commended, and furthermore be encouraged to become the best blogger that he could possibly be. To be brutally frank, most of Billy’s posting are utter shite, but I would argue that they are honest to goodness shite. Besides which he makes the rest of us look reasonably sane and sober, in a good light and with a following wind.

    I rest my case.

    https://submissions.epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/265

    Of particular concern is the BBC’s failure to tell the truth about Government spending; that it is currently rising; not falling.

    Blaming our current poor growth on “Cuts” is simply an outrageous lie.

    If the BBC cannot be truthful in this case; it has no right to public money, and no right to demand a licence fee.

    The best thing would have been to let them both have thier protests, any violence then nick em, If the left can occupy that church and surronding area then the freedom of expression and protest should be providied to all.

    In the event of a situation that pertained in the Spring of 1982 as there are assets in theatre and the base can theoretically be re-inforced within 24 hours as there is an air-bridge capability and you can bet that re-inforcements would be forthcoming irrespective of other committments and cuts…no UK government and especially a Tory led one could survive losing the Falklands…..as Mrs T almost found out to her cost in 1982…..but lket’s hope we don’t have to put that to the test

    If you want to find ‘radioactive particles’, you wouldn’t have to look very hard. They crop up all over the place, most of them perfectly natural. Cornwall, for example, is mostly a whacking great lump of granite, which is radioactive. There are natural outcrops of pitchblende in several places (Peak District and on the Solway Firth, for example) which if they were on a nuclear licensed site would have to be barriered off. Since they aren’t on nuclear licensed sites, you can sit on them and eat your butties if you like.

    The only real problem these ‘particles’ could cause is if someone started eating them in quantity. Otherwise, they are about as dangerous as dogshit.

The French have of course already waved the white flag and their Petit President will of course blame Britain for their failed Euro experiment because “Ze Roast Beefs did not give us enough money”.

    And – Dear Nell says: “Can you imagine the UK or Germany trying to impose such an open ended dictatorship on their own people? They’d face an uprising.” The UK is different to Germany. The Germans do love tight authority and obedience and who better to provide that than the armed forces, again! The UK as usual will stand alone on our little island because we don’t have any other option. But would we fight to save the Italians or the Greeks or the Spanish or the Portuguese? Even the war monger Blair would balk at that scenario.

    The BBC is of course is not concerned about democracy. They themselves are very happy to continue without any form of authority from the people and only ever submit to a Labour run parliament. Indeed they are actively putting out propaganda to bring down this, the only government in Europe that has a chance of surviving this mess.

    There have to be elections eventually in all the Euro countries, and whilst there was general popular support for the single currency and even for greater integration when things were going well, that might turn rather more eurosceptic in more adverse times.

    A close family member visited Germany recently, five years after a previous visit. She was surprised at how much the country has deteriorated in that time, and she felt that the general morale of ordinary Germans is in a fragile state. They are not happy about their taxes, the product of their hard work, being used to prop up the economies of other countries. Merkel faces re-election soon; who knows what direction the German voter might go.

    Those populations of those countries with ‘installed’ technocrats might live with it to see them through the immediate crisis, but they will want their say in due course.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
