People seem so fractious these days: from the Southern Mediterranean to North Africa, from Northern Europe to the British Isles and on to America and Canada, there is just so much discontent at the moment. If you go on Twitter, that’s virtually all there is, pouring in, all the time: unrest here, disquiet there, riots brewing everywhere.
Some people complain about social media networks; they say they’re juvenile, frivolous and empty-headed. I’d say, well, sort out the people you ‘follow’ then. If you follow IheartBieber or Loveland4All what can you expect? GIGO = Garbage In, Garbage Out.
Did you know that there’s apparently a video somewhere of Gaddafi being raped after capture? You won’t hear that on the BBC or SkyNews. Or how about THIS? I posted about it having been developed back in 2009 but at the time the press release said there were no govt takers and treated it as a joke. My, how times change. As Hookie said in response to a previous post, we can’t take anything for granted – and one thing’s for sure, we shouldn’t take for granted that government is benign.
Some people might think that those two bits of info are GIGO, but I think they’re interesting and worth keeping an eye on. I might as well throw in these as well:
- Yet another e-petition but this one is different in that it calls for the government to invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.
- Nigel Farage claims he’s heard whisperings of Conservative defections to UKIP.
It’s cat/pigeons time everywhere at the moment and our little worlds are about to be rocked, mega-bigtime.
