The eyes have it

Hazel Blears is getting twitchy about "the signals" the UK government is sending out to young Muslims in Britain, mainly because Labour has used its normal doublespeak when talking about the recent murder of men, women and children in Gaza.

Boo-hoo to Blears. She seems to have conveniently forgotten that she voted in favour of the invasion of Iraq and against any public investigation on it and the subsequent - and ongoing - imperialist occupation by UK forces. She also voted for increasing the number of days a suspected terrorist could be held without charge in a UK prison for interrogation.

According to the BBC, "Ms Blears said ministers needed to make sure that people 'don't feel that there's hypocrisy and double standards'". A bit fucking late for that, isn't it?

I interviewed Hazel Blears once. I came to the conclusion that she was actually a robot. Look at her cold, dead eyes next time she's on telly.
