It might be funny, but I love Thunderbirds. It was my favourite show when I was growing up. You know what? It still is.
International Rescue helped people. They saved lives. Made the world a better place. This man is an disgrace to the uniform. It's an insult to Scott, Alan, Gordon, Brains and especially Virgil to associate this fucking moron, this retard, with their legacy any longer. (And yes, I know 'retard' is politically incorrect. But not as politically incorrect as 'cunt', which is the only other word I can think of.)

I was going to do a post sounding off about the budget in detail, but what's the point? Everyone else from CAMRA and BBPA to the entire UK beer blogosphere is venting their spleen, and I agree with them, but I've nothing additional to say. I have been thinking about where we go from here though. And I plan to write quite a bit about that, real soon.
