I Really Like John Reid, I Really Do, Honest

John Reid, the newly appointed Home Secretary, has my deep and unalloyed admiration, he really does. Not only has he gone into the Home Office, his 27th Cabinet job in as many years or something, and told them they are all a bunch of cunts, which is palpably true, but he is an old Stalinist tankie of the first order. "Red" Reid does not mess about, and is just the comrade to supply the sort of smack of firm Government that this country needs. Thank heavens he does not drink, and is no longer the man who once consumed possibly 10 whisky and lemonades at lunch. And no food. The lemonade, I think, was a very stylish touch. And his deep admiration for the Bosnian Serb freedom fighter Radovan Karadzic (whereabouts, I believe, still unknown - I'd suggest starting at John's house - if they can find a sliver of cannbis, they can find a large former pyschiatrist, surely?) is something that can only affirm one's awe for the man's judgement. If only he would rename the Home Office the Ministry of the Interior (MiniTer) then we could all certainly sleep safer in our beds. A friend of mine once asked Red John what attracted him first to his new-ish South American wife, apart from the raunchy films she auteuresses. "Her ahss", he replied, at which my pal leaned round and had a look, opining, "Yeah it is quite nice, actually". A fellow Scot broke in to say, in a mock-English accent : "He said her eyes, ya fucking twat."

Oh dear, that's rather like the old gag (recently recycled to excellent effect in "Will and Grace") in which an outraged woman slaps a medic who has just told her she has acute angina.

I've heard this story before as it happens - quite possibly from the same source as you - but seeing it again made me laugh so much I've put a link to this on my blog!

Anybody willing to say that Karadic (the legal President of Bosnia when the war started) is a far better man than our (ex-)Nazi openly genocidal moslem friend Izetbegovic or the equally obscene (ex-)Nazi friend of ours, Mr Tudjamn of Croatia clearly has more guts & integrity than 95% of MPs & journalists put together.

Among all the bawdy humour, a serious point is made. We in the West sure do need the smack of firm Government. Representative liberal democracy (fine only in theory) has in practice turned the sons of Constantine into soft, degenerate moral relativists. Now's the time for a little Right Wing discipline and tough love. And it usually takes a former lefty to supply that.
A further thought ... when the power in the land is authoritian and proscriptive then it is important we should be liberal in our personal lives. But when the power in the land is liberal and permissive (as it has been in Britain for the past 50 years or so), then it is even more important that we should be conservative in our personal lives.
