The Fiends!

Word of the Day: Dastardly
Cowardly and malicious; base

I can't remember the last time I heard someone use the word 'dastardly'. It's fabulous. Unfortunately it is being used by Max Lawson of Oxfam to describe, oh go on, have a guess.

Elsewhere, "The US secretary of state calls for greater intervention to promote democracy in Latin America and the Caribbean." It's so bloody obvious the US govt is hellbent on their own agenda. Not to debate here the rights or wrongs of 'intervention to promote democracy', but what about a country that is actually desperately in need of help on the democracy front. Zimbabwe anyone? Thought not.

And apparently the Daily Hate Mail is poised to be Britain's No. 1 paper. Lovely.
