I've had it with O2 customer services, I only wanted a handset upgrade to a Sony Ericsson P990i, last week they accepted an order from me, when I check on friday they then told me the handset had not been released, and was not due to be until today, I call today and they now tell me it won't be released until next Monday. A different yarn every time, yet I can quite simply buy one from Expansys. Why can't they get their story straight, and why can't they tell me why they are delaying? Embarassing for O2? or Sony Ericsson.

It makes me sick, that Tony Bliar will not publicly condemn the US position over the attrocities being commited in Lebannon, this is one chance the British PM has to show that he has a spine and stand up to the American Redneck culture that passes for US foreign policy.

Fuck the 'special relationship' Britain would be better off without the influence of US 'culture' and I would rather see us throw ourselves into Europe than continue slavishly supporting the American War Mongers.

The Israelis should be slapped with UN sanctions and cast out from the international community.

After all they are bombing the red cross as well now...

Went to see The wind that shook the barley last night with nullstr and hecateshandmaid, I really enjoyed the film, even though I found it a bit difficult to watch in places owing to the fact that I'm a bit squeamish :D , I thought it was an excellent story of a period of Anglo-Irish history which I feel is pretty unknown, I read about some of this stuff out of interest when I was a teenager ( suppression of irish by the black and tans ), it's doubtful to me anyone would be proud to be British whilst watching it.

I also really loved the cinematography and locations for shooting, it reminded me of the areas the Irish bits of my family come from.

In a move which I consider shocking but mostly LONG LONG overdue, the government is edging towards legislating Bank Holidays into compulsory paid holiday....

Compulsory paid bank holidays for Britons

This would take most full time workers up to a minimum of 28 days leave annually, that's more like it in my opinion.

New Labour is like cannabis:

Both induce mild euphoria and a distorted sense of reality

Both induce a tendency to talk rubbish in a meaningful way

With both everything takes on added significance despite the fact that nothing is happening

Or "Commerciality over heart, has won out"

I've always been rather ill-suited to the industry I do IT in, and today I saw something which backed up my conviction that our society has deeply screwed up it's value system.

Today, I was standing at a crossroads of Leadenhall St, Cornhill and Gracechurch St, when I hear a lot of sirens, I see an ambulance, lights on answering an emergency call try to go through the crossroads, then some armed police cars scream up, box the ambulance in to one side, in order for an armoured money lorry to drive through, before letting the ambulance go on it's way, does anybody else see something totally WRONG here?

The fact that the armoured money vehicle was prioritised over the ambulance ( and from which we can derive, human life ) makes me feel *lost* this isn't the society I want.

I've been unable to shift the refrain from Ashs' 'Angel Interceptor' from my head for about  a week now, and so on the verge of insanity, I wondered if there was some subliminal reason it was stuck there, and googled up 'Angel Interceptor' obviously nothing striking came to mind, but I found a superbly geeky page on said term ..

The Angel Interceptor

Needles to say this gels with a tiny bit of my brain that's lingering which was responsible for me building airfix models as a kid..

Actually, that probably bears some analysis, but I better not go that way tonight..
