Shout out to the UK

Here's a reprint of my newest post in BowieNet;

Britons.
You are amazing!



Support for Tony Blair has skyrocketed in the wake of the jihadist attacks on London. I think that's quite the opposite effect that the enemy had intended.
And in response to this homegrown version of killing of Londoners, Blair has come forward with tough new measures to eject the preachers of hatred and destruction.

The Weekly Standard reports;

But last week the phony war ended. Opinion polls showed a sudden leap in support for Tony Blair, giving him his first net positive approval in more than two years. They showed large majorities in favor of keeping British troops in Iraq and, most strikingly, a jump in the number of Brits who believed their country should stay close to the United States in its foreign policy--now a clear majority--rather than striking out on its own or siding with the Europeans.

If the jihadists had done their homework and studied their history, they might have avoided attacks on London. They only served to stiffen British resolve.

Tony Blair has great support behind him now in calling for measures that are even sterner than America's Patriot Act. The imams of death will be expelled.

Three cheers for the UK. Three cheers for Tony Blair. The struggle is joined.

Note; I am beside myself with amazement at how easy it was to reproduce this post in this blog. All I had to do was copy & paste. No customizing of links or images was required. Just copy&paste. Sometimes, it's just too easy.

    As someone with an obvious interest, I was wondering if you might tell us about the tone - if not the actual words - of the replies you recieved for this post.

    Ahah! Well then, you'll just have to resubscibe if you want to discover that, now won't you? lol

    Jes' teasing. I'll generously provide that info for you my ex-Nutter friend. The truth is that this post was met with stone-cold silence and indifference. With one notable exception. A Nutter from New Jersey who has been a lurker in P&R for some time pm'd me to express her admiration for my "brave posts" in the forum. She then joined the fray by posting support for this post of mine, as well as participating in other posts.

    She's a single woman, too. Could this be love? I am sure the British tabloids will not be carrying the story anytime soon.

    I was thinking of resubscribing sometime before Christmas.

    Three cheers for the lady from New Jersey. It's heartening to know that you're still there making Bowienet safe for democracy.
