Over at Orphans of Liberty, JuliaM has another 'pointed' post (as are all of hers!) on the difference between Turkish Kurds and Sikhs (armed) turning out to defend that which they considered theirs and the indigenous "whitey's" (unarmed) doing likewise. It would appear from Julia's article that both the elected and unelected only want the 'Big Society' implemented on their terms.
What is distressing is the first comment to her article, which shows that if she (Barbara Trimblett) is indicative of the electorate at large, then either the 'brain washing' practised by the political elite has been successful; or the electorate, at large, hasn't one brain cell between them.
More importantly and just as distressingly, it also shows that the likes of Barbara Tremlett has a vote - don't you just love democracy?
