From the hospice where he is now living out the last of his days, he penned this ‘F*ck You’ letter to Bush and Cheney – a letter that could just as easily have been addressed to Tony Blair !
To: George W. Bush and Dick Cheney
From: Tomas Young
I write this letter on the 10th anniversary of the Iraq War on behalf of my fellow Iraq War veterans. I write this letter on behalf of the 4,488 soldiers and Marines who died in Iraq. I write this letter on behalf of the hundreds of thousands of veterans who have been wounded and on behalf of those whose wounds, physical and psychological, have destroyed their lives. I am one of those gravely wounded. I was paralyzed in an insurgent ambush in 2004 in Sadr City. My life is coming to an end. I am living under hospice care.
He’s had it for 8 years. Neighbours and villagers like it. Think it’s a bit of fun, but the Council have now received a complaint and have despatched the local fuzz round to inspect Richard Jackson’s bush

While the News Channel wouldn’t show the bush for fear of offending anyone, Madhatters has no such qualms so here is a photo of the bush in question

Filming in Tswalu Kalahari Game Reserve in South Africa, Roger de la Harpe hoped to capture 3 lionesses on film by leaving a running camera near a path they regularly patrolled. One lioness, however, took a fancy to the camera and carried it off into the bush . . .
You’re not going to believe me when I tell you this so you’d best check the link and read the original article for yourselves.
We all know the perils of using a mobile phone to speak to or text someone whilst we are behind the wheel of a car.
Likewise, we’ve read of incidents where women have been stopped for applying their makeup while driving – but trimming their fuzzy bits while driving to meet their boyfriend? That’s a new one – to me at least.
Yet that’s exactly what a 37 yr old woman was doing when she ran into the back of the car in front in Florida – apparently she wanted to be ‘ready’ for when she met her boyfriend.
Oh, did I mention that the woman’s ex-husband was in the passenger seat, hands on the wheel, steering the car, while she did her bikini line?
Go on, I know you don’t believe me, click the link to check out this story –
Amidst growing public disapproval both in USA and UK over troop involvement in Afghanistan, PM Gordon Brown continues to insist the mission of the troops in Afghanistan is vital to safeguard security in this country.
Absolute f*cken bollocks !
How many terrorist attacks on UK – linked to the Taliban – were there before Bush and Blair decided to invade Afghanistan?
F*ck all ! – as far as I am aware
(if anyone knows different, please feel free to leave a comment after this post).
Bush and Blair led our forces into Afghanistan to kill or capture Osama Bin Laden. Having failed in that objective we have been floundering about since with seemingly no clear idea of what to do next – the mission goals giving the appearance of being made up as we go along to justify our continued presence there.
An online poll currently being run by METRO News shows a clear majority of those voting do NOT believe Brown’s argument that the safety of UK citizens vitally depends on defeating the Taliban.
With a General Election looming on the horizon, Brown would do well to start listening to the people !!!
He became a hero to many – when he hurled his shoes at George Bush during a Press Conference.
Now a court has sentenced Iraqi journalist, Muntazer Al-Zaidi, to 3yrs in prison.
Zaidi, who said he had been beaten and tortured while in custody, is thought will appeal against the sentence.
[There are many who regret he did not hit his intended target]

During his term as President of the USA, George Bush defended his country’s use of torture to extract information form those suspected of being terrorists, citing legal opinion that the practice was ‘lawful’.
A Department of Justice report is now calling into question the legal advice on which George Bush relied.
The Medal of Freedom, which is the highest civil award in the US, is presented to individuals who have made “an especially meritorious contribution to the security or national interests of the United States, or world peace . . .”
Yesterday, US President George W Bush awarded the Medal of Freedom to ex- british Prime Minister, Tony Blair.
‘especially meritorious contribution to . . . world peace’ ???
Tell that to the thousands of military and civilians that have lost their lives, been injured, lost their homes, and livelihoods in Afghan and Iraq as a result of Bush and Blair’s ‘meritorius contribution . . . to world peace.’
Pair of self-congratulatory, back slapping, arseholes !!!
The BBC have been compilationorizing a whole new collection of Bushisms….
….and here he is, Ladies and Gentlemen, the man who has successfully out-quayled Dan Quayle, the most ridiculous man in the public eye……..
