I recently spoke to An Eighty-Year-Old Woman With Whom I Am Very Well Acquainted and I asked her what her thoughts were on the recent Critical Security Alert. She answered me thus.

A lot of made up nonsense! There’s that oul get Blair away on his holidays and the next thing this carry-on starts! They had it all planned out. I was listening to that oul Reid and that other doll on the television and y’know they were that well rehearsed. They’d that all planned. Your Daddy used to say that they always started some sort of a carry-on all over the TV and the papers when they were up to something they didn’t want anybody to know about. And d’ye not think that oul Blair looks evil like the divil? Or maybe it’s some sort of an act he’s putting on?

That's the general attitude here, as well.

It's good to see that I'm not the most paranoid person about. I mean, even I don't think that Blair looks like the devil. Sleeps with the devil, maybe, but not looks like.

What I loved about her reaction was that she didn't even have to think about it. It all burst out. And her and her pensioner friends are raging, absolutely raging, about the rates increases and the water rates. They're only on fixed incomes trying to get by. They hate and distrust this government.

Take our Englishman guest last weekend he's a Geordie, father was a miner, life-long Labour supporter both of them - HATE this government.

I agree with your 80 yr old friend and the miner and Ed - seems like that about covers all the demographics!!!
