Satire

A picture is worth a thousand words. Satire can be savage and honest. It is  part of an English tradition which goes back to the 18th Century. The targets have changed and the technology has improved; the style is there.

Satire or truth?

 

The Times takes a position on Her Majesty's Prime Minister

 

Blair is not popular with the Labour Party but he ain't short of chutzpah.

 

Votes falling off the back of a lorry - from someone else who does not admire Her Majesty's Prime Minister - 'Tiger'

 

Blair cares about the men he sends to fight Israel's wars? You jest?

If any question
Why we die,
Tell them because
Our fathers lied.
by Kipling

 

Who is that controls Bush?

 

Dual loyalty or loyalty to Israel and all its works? Try the latter.

 

Any story will do. It just takes the effrontery.

 

Who tells Bush what his opinions are?

 

Did Bush go to war? Did his children? Not a chance.

 

Naturally friends of George didn't go to Vietnam. They were too busy making money.

 

Uncle Sam needs you. Keep paying sucker.

 

Politics NOT satire. Flying coffin class is not good.

 

Adolf and Bush - who was the better man?

 

Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

 

But we NEED identity cards  to protect us from domestic terrorists.

 

Double standards or what?
