Off topic but the follow up to an article I published a couple of weeks ago.

Guardian: Mystery of Tony Blair's money solved

The winner of the Guardian's online contest to solve the mystery of Blair's finances is Richard Murphy, a crusading accountant from Tax Research UK. His entry unearthed the small print of the Partnership (Accounts) Regulations 2008 to reveal that Blair has found an unusual method to keep his wealth secret from the rest of us. Murphy wins an original cartoon by Steve Bell.

The winner might be Richard Murphy but the loser will be the UK taxpayer getting ripped off.

The main reason that I posted these articles was to emphathise the general lethargy among the populous of the UK. Not only the UK but in many other countries around the globe. History has shown, on many occassions, that when the general population feels overwhelmingly aggrieved, bad/good things happen. We have been inundated with greed articles in the media for at least two years now; bankers bonuses, MP's expense scandals etc. yet nothing is changing. Are we really to believe that like house prices only ever going up now, we are truly in a new paradigm?

What strange/interseting times we are living in!

Flintster, I agree with your lethargy point.

I've always thought that upcoming generations/eras manage to surprise the previous ones. Thinking back to how militant people were in the 1970s and 1980s, it seems like a different world. People had far less in terms of material goods but at least there was still a sense of community in so many parts of the UK, which has certainly changed a great deal in the last 20 years.

I thought maybe the wheel would turn and a more militant attitude would become apparent as the economic problems we're encountering developed. Maybe the surprise from the present era is the opposite of what I expected. Rather than an increased militancy for some social justice and the like, maybe we're at the point of social capitulation. It feels like it. When you think what has transpired since Northern Rock collapsed and the populations of most countries have just taken it on the chin, briefly looking up from their TV dinners and gone back to sleep.

Maybe those of us here who wish for a bit more community and social cohesion and fairness etc, maybe we're just tilting at windmills. We are living in a police state and daily you hear more stories about freedoms being eroded and there isn't a single group/body/society/union/whatever that is getting any degree of weight of opinion behind it. AND YET, a third of the population tune in to watch next years Butlin's Red Coats battling it out for a career in the pop music business.

Even if we reach breaking point and people start taking some action, the biggest problem will probably be armies of sportswear attired thugs who will be trying to make the most of the situation for themselves. We could find out that Thatcher was right, there is no thing as society.

I do hope to live to see him swinging by the neck, I really do. He is the most evil and despicable man of our times (with the possible exception of the idiot son of a retard, Bush)
