I am drinking a cup of coffee, however.No Brits involved in the picking. Only Indian/Chinese peasants.Ain't blank verse great?No worry about rhyming.

There is no military solution to it. (We have enough proof in the 2 current control wars)We can do nothing.We certainly can not keep cherry picking the population to remove all their leaders, professionals and key future talent.Just because you live next door, do you think you should beat up your the next door neighbour when they fight in their own back garden. There is NO World police. There is NO communicating divine power to call on. Stop attributing your local society ideals on others.If you want to rule something then BE HONEST and conquer it. Take control and have it as your own. If you want a World police then conquer all the people of the world. If you leave just one country, then the bad guys will just use that as their play ground. If you want to take sides then be prepared to imprison/control the whole of other side for a generation or two.I have lived in a non-policed community outside of government without an internal money system. When the bad guys arrive you are all alone. You do what you can. I did the equivalent of run for the hills and hide. We survived. Others fought back and became killers. When perfectly sane people are manipulated to think you are the enemy, and gather against you, then you find pastures new. The problem in the world, is that there are few NEW pastures.Once you see what war, and aid dependence, does to an population you would not urge anything. All you can do is be a passive friend and share experiences and solutions (educate AND learn).

It doesn't matter where we look, we close our eyes. Paula Radcliffe winning the NY marathon. Yes, a marvellous endeavour). And if as a result of her finishing an Arfican from the Horn got forced out of the place money?One dare not even think that as a result cousins in a remote village go to bed poorly fed.Sport.What a way to decide who eats well and who doesn't, sport.No Brits involved? From embarrassment at our financial embarrassment, no doubt - or that of the Arficans, a more grievous matter.No matter where we look Africans face mere sufficiency or destitution. We close our eyes to it, we who at worst would be forced to live at benefit levels.No Brits involved? We all are, my friend.

That slump,Can we avoid it?Yes, we can.Sorry to hear about Jonathon Ross (oh, no sorry, this is one you're ENCOURAGING chat about.). Now more people, this time truckers, friends and family, know what being on the receiving end of mouthy media 'people' is actually like.Polite civil intercourse doesn't need to be cloying or patronising but it does need to be polite.Just 'cos it's funny sometimes doesn't ever make it right.PS Do we get the African dead numbers tonite? Dead from malnutrition and preventable disease?Develop Africa so no one is poor and governance there will improve.Equality, please. Its time is now.PS I'd crane my neck to AVOID seeing JC.
