Ice Bear

(no subject)

I am currently learning the hard way that one should always book ones flights at least 2 weeks in advance.
£170 for the privilege of flying to Sweden?
I don't bloody think so...

Yes it's all very dreadful and awful, but the last 25 years seems to have been one long crisis for Africa so I guess I'm just inured to it by now. I see the pictures and I can't be bothered reading the stories. When I occassionally do, they read exactly like the ones from when I was a kid in the 80s.
And each time there's an outpouring of sympathy while we try to relieve our conscience by giving a bit of money to some charity.

Rather than give money (Or perhaps in addition to...) how about you all stop voting for the bandits and robbers who have been causing these disasters for the past 40 years... Mmkay?
If you vote Tory or Labour you can pat yourself on the back and say 'Job well done' for helping them keep Africa in poverty. And the next time you reach into your vallet to give some aid, try to consider whether you're part of the problem or part of the solution...
