Cheers, Charlie

Strange how Charles Kennedy's admission of alcoholism should spell the end of his career while George Bush's history of drinking seems to be no barrier to becoming leader of the 'Free World'.

So he was, and a smoker too! Was there any depravity to which he would not have been susceptible? However it seems that when the knives are out for somebody's political career, there are no prejudices that will not be stooped to. That and the fact of Charles Kennedy's going are a real shame, in my opinion.

So Quixotematic, i apologise for the fact that this next is off topic, i would have emailed you but there is no link to do so on Encyclopaedia Erratica.

I'm trying to start a campaign to get Blair & Co prosecuted for Conspiracy to Torture under UK Domestic Law. It doesn't rely on any International Court or definitions of "complicity," but rather is a straightforward case against joining with others in an enterprise which will have lawbreaking as its inevitable result, contrary to the Criminal Law Act 1977. I'm not arsing about here... Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I think the trouble is that Charlie still has "issues" which GWB hasn't. If rumour is correct, GWB was quite a raver in his youth - tales of coke-fuelled Mexican excesses. But didn't all of us with millionaire fathers do things like that ? I know I did.

And I'm proud that America is a land of such opportunity that a reformed lush can make it to the top job.
