(eg the embarrassing Stephen Hawking thing) It&#39;s disappointing that most of the right-of-centre blogs haven&#39;t acknowledged this because in my mind it creates yet another falsehood in a struggle that has too many falsehoods already.<br /><br />However for UK political purposes it has been hijacked by Labour, indeed it features on their front page. Linehan is also unhappy about this and has started a #makelabourapologiseforiraq trend in revenge. (Not the most pointed kind of attack he could make, admittedly.)<br /><br />Still I don&#39;t think it&#39;s fair to describe them as 10,000 Labour supporters. More like unwitting stooges I suppose.Tomhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/15252054403352395221noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-2787283052819380346.post-26308972193974644642009-08-15T19:35:51.517+01:002009-08-15T19:35:51.517+01:00TB Don&#39;t get sunburned would hate to see a bu...TB<br /><br />Don&#39;t get sunburned would hate to see a burnt bear!<br /><br />Duncan&#39;s remark seemed to me to be entirely ironic and as Wiki says:<br /><br />&quot;There is argument about what qualifies as ironic, but all senses of irony revolve around the perceived notion of an incongruity between what is expressed and what is intended, or between an understanding or expectation of a reality and what actually happens: the literal truth is in direct discordance to the perceived truth.&quot;<br /><br />The sense of humour failure started with the red PC brigade and has now spread to right thinking people.

Good video, hadn&#39;t seen it before. <br />The way Alan Duncan was caught was a bit unfair.<br />He does make flippent remarks though, but an good speaker in the house.Dippyness.https://www.blogger.com/profile/03074617995848289735noreply@blogger.com
