If you wanna make the world a better place...

...take a look at yourself and make that...change!

So we are to suffer 4 more years of a puppet in charge of the USA. I have no real problems with that, as its not my country and I have no say in the outcome.

What I do want to do, is to understand how we must rally the voters in the UK to send a SHOCKWAVE to Mr Tony Bush and his cronies, that this here is NOT the 51st State, and that we do things differently here. The Empire of yore has taught the political vein of this country a lot of lessons about freedom, democracy and the cost of war. Gandhi himself showed that adversity can be overcome, no matter how powerful it may seem.

I want to know how I can help to remind the Labour Party, that we here in the UK don't want to be a poodle-state to the USA, and that we want a leader who will do as the French and German leaders have done, and say "No, I refuse to partake in any illegal activity just because you are going to threaten me with bully tactics, I have integrity, my country has integrity".

Should I vote Liberal, or Should I vote Tory? How can I weaken the governments position to make them realise that they HAVE to listen to us. We didn't have the UK's BIGGEST EVER public demonstration against the war for fun - aliken it to the Suffragette movement please.
Its something that is for a good cause, and is against the current incumbent government.

I need that guidance. We need to mobilise and send that Shockwave.

That is my thought. That is my blog post. That is my intent.

    I agree with you completely in that things HAVE to change, but I'm not sure that just voting Tory or Lib Dem rather than Labour is the answer. (Well, certainly not Tory anyway.) After all, it's not your voice that's heard when you vote; it's the bleeping of a machine that only knows three answers (red, blue, yellow) to a very complicated question.

    The Suffragette movement is a good example in one way, in that change was effected by the strong and persistent protests of a large number of people; but unfortunately the actions of many Suffragettes (e.g. smashing shop windows, rioting, storming the Houses of Parliament) did more harm than good to their cause, because then they were just seen as hysterical females who didn't have any coherent point to put across, so tried to attract attention by throwing a hissy fit and screaming a lot.

    I believe that - in the art of protest - there has to be some sort of middle ground between (on the one hand) running amok on the streets and causing the police to bring out the CS gas and (on the other) stolidly sending useless petitions into the bureaucratic maze that is the British government, or simply voting for some other faceless party leader because you don't agree with the actions of the faceless party leader you voted for last time.

    Someone who has attempted that protest middle ground lives here:

    to completely change the subject....

    what you do, is you take Damo's list off my site (and probably the instructions as well), add a post on here with your changes made (i.e. delete three albums, add three albums, put into bold all the ones you have heard all of the way through) and then post a link in my comments to your list.

    Clear as mud?

    good.

    And yeah. Hail to the Thief.
