This is the city famous for its theater. As all things theatrical London managed to provide & be the center of drama.
Just 6 days ago I was at Hyde Park, witnessing a world event in entertainment. Live 8, at Hyde Park was the main setting for a serious of simultaneous concerts across the civilised world. The objectives & the aims were to get our leaders to listen & take note of the plight & reality of African Poverty. All in one beautiful summer day in central London. Organised & inspired by our very own Irish do gooder, Sir Bob Geldof. It would have been great if we could have seen a couple of flying pigs & whilst we are at it, how about Maggie Thatcher having a romantic diner with Arthur Scargill, the famous militant head of the Miners Union. But instead we got a great day out, a show full of insincere, overt, unnecessarily rich & mostly untalented fuckers who jump on any band wagon to sell a few more copies of their shit. I fail to see how Snoop Dog can represent or give a shit about a single child or human being. Surely they must have heard what he is spitting about on his numerous Albums . Drugs, bitches & Ho s!! Snoop is just a dumb idiot who will pretty much do anything if you give him a load f cash or a good blow job.
The affairs of world or Africa are really beyond this mans brains. Snoop Dog is light entertainment & nothing more. The insult continued by the aging media manipulator extraordinaire. Madonna. She managed to encircle herself with a bunch of cute African kids & sang her stuff holding the hands of saved by Geldof Ethiopian proof. The good looking Ethiopian girl who was featured on the Live Aid videos (20 years ago) as dying & now a grown woman/mum holding Madonna s hands on stage in Hyde Park. Again I was witness to a pathetic & shameful display of pure insincerity on & off stage. The merchandisers were selling shirts saying, THIS SHIRT WILL MAKE HISTORY, cost £25.00. Eergh??? I do not fucking think so. Reason: I know the companies involved & their shit is merchandising & nothing but. But it is worth remembering that only £5.00 will provide enough basics for a family for a week in Africa!! The only way out was to actually get drunk to numb my brain from their bullshit & do the day out thing with my girl friend, A-type.
Joss Stone sang like a true supa star & innocently made some convincing comments. The other Supa Novae were Mariah Carey who was just brilliant, followed by Pink Floyd, the original gods of Prog Rock, concept albums, LSD & all things rock & roll. The significant thing was the presence of Roger Waters in the band. These guys had a major barny & it was great to see the moody dark one on stage with the rest of the old fuckers. They made no comments nor spoke a word. Simply played their shit & fucked off!! Respect for that alone.
The whole of Monday & Tuesday was dominated by our bid for the 2012 Olympics. Paris seemed to have it in the bag. They gloating from my French neighbour had already begun. Chirac even said that no one would want to come here, because we can not cook. Dude, we don t need to cook. That s what restaurants are for & we got the best of them in the world. Name the dish & I will take you to the place. London managed to win the Olympics bid, mainly through Tony Blair s efforts of one to one lobbying in Singapore. Nice one Tony! Wee may still forgive you for the errors of your past 2 years. So On Wednesday morning we get the blinding news that East London is going to be revamped made appealing for the 2012 Olympics. Wicked! I am still dubious about East London. It needs so much money & PR to get revamped. But hey if we get the Olympic money in then it will certainly help. Property prices in the vicinity went up by some 40%!! Whoa hoooo!

Property prices in the vicinity went up by some 40%!! Whoa hoooo!Thursday morning it was time to get serious. The main items on the agenda were African debt/poverty & climate change. The G-8 shit was well under way & an understandably exhausted Tony Blair was in Glen Eagles, Scotland, to host & head the proceedings. The Anarchists were representing & the media ready to exploit & twist the truth yet again.
Before leaving home I saw George Bush, here-on-after called The Donkey, addressing the early morning press conference with Tony Blair standing next to him & again trying to figure out what the fuck & how the fuck does this man function. The Donkey was as puzzled as a donkey can be. The questions were not prepared for him, like they normally are back home & he could do nothing other than look like a stupid donkey. Tony was definitely beginning to look good again! The only person in the world who can exert any form of pressure on The Donkey to keep The Donkey from drifting too much. But this was ever so short lived. As I am riding through my town, London Town, I noticed a few sirens, more than usual number of people outside tube stations & a fucked up jam. My girl friend, A-Type, is providing me with constant commentary about the traffic & how we are weaving through it. I am riding & cussing at the Mayor & his 8 quid a day congestion charge, which looked as if it is not working. Totally unaware. Then I noticed 4 ambulances screaming after one another!! This did not seem like a regular Thursday morning to work. In fact, it turned out to be a particularly sad day for me & my Town, London Town.
It is not my intention to rant or to offend. But to be honest, what else could we expect. We have known & been told that the threat of a terror attack in London was real & close. We declared war, illegally, on Afghanistan & then Iraq, because The Donkey was vexed. We have conquered both countries quite effectively & quickly. We listened to The Donkey & pay for this each day, in lives, taxes & world credibility. No sane person on this planet agrees nor accepts the position. We can not begin to talk to Arabs & Muslims about international rule of law & order when we are busy breaking the same laws. To be specific, the 40 year old resolutions for Israel to with draw from occupied territories are but one set of examples. The Neo Nazi concrete wall to create & get away with the new concentration camp around Jerusalem compounded by the killing of 100,000 Iraqis in one year is another. Add the poverty issues, forced economic slavery through various projects in Africa & we will have ourselves the most deadly enemies. Oh yes this is the price we have to pay when we follow The Donkey. Each & every day we are forced to hear The Donkey tell us about the war. THE WAR ON TERROR. Given that The Donkey has chosen the word WAR, then it makes sense that they will do their best to bring their rubbish to my Town, London Town. My words to The Donkey & any one who is stupid enough to continue following his lead is this: your WAR ON TERROR is clearly failing. It failed in New York, it failed in Madrid & now in my Town, London Town. Only an idiot would still insist on following the same policy. The simple solution is to change policy. The Spanish did so, by voting their government out & withdrawing the troops from Iraq. We can do this. Quiet easily & start leading by example. United States of America has managed to reduce itself to being lead by The Donkey; the rest of the world does not need to take part in the charade anymore. USA is basically politically, morally & economically bankrupt. Let them be & learn history the hard way.
Our emergency services teams were representing & working flat out to deal with the mass carnage. We can only thank them & be proud of them. My heart goes to the families of all those people who died. These were innocent individuals trying to get to work on Public Transport. They all have mums, dads, brothers, sisters & cousins, just like me & you & just like those in Africa, Iraq or Palestine. Life is precious what ever the colour, creed or religion. We are intelligent enough to defend & fight for life. So my message to the terrorist would be a straight forward fuck you. Because I live in a city that is tough, resilient, tolerant & beautiful. You can only paralyse us temporarily. We are not Americans. We are Londoners & this is our town: London Town.
