Avalanche of outrage against Prime Minister

"We are about to take the war against terror to a new level", says Gordon Brown in the Observer today here

This has generated an avalanche of outrage from commentators. Their views are worth reading, because the summarises the intellectual and moral bankruptcy of the New Labour project. The literal bankruptcy of the UK is, I suppose, a logical consequence.

Personally, I don't blame Brown or New Labour. The British brought it on themselves by their complacency, ignorance, greed, and refusal to engage in politics at an intellectual level. The prevailing mood is rage. Soon the masses will be taking to the streets but there will be no coherence to their demands. There will just be an emotion of anger. What the British will not do is sit down and think.
