Then they came for Manning
And I said nothing
For he was denounced as a traitor
Then they came for Snowdon
And I said nothing
For he was condemned to eternal exile
Now they will come for us
And there is no one left to hear.
Apart from the Ear of the State.
With all due respects, Herr Niemöller.
Nobody in the UK, or the non-US world will see it, don't fret.

Re: hspasm Place your bets!
You do seem to have issues with criticism, don't you. Must be past your bedtime.
Perhaps you shouldn't bother your little head with adult topics, you know they upset you so.
