As easy it was to tell black from white, it was all that easy to tell wrong from right.

A couple of interesting articles I picked up on this week over at ZNet. Apparently John Kerry has discovered the strength of the black vote in the US, having got the message that in the crucial Florida election in 2000, "95,000 African-American votes were dumped in the Florida swamps, marked as spoiled."

Writing in The Guardian, Michael Meacher (the latest of the ex-Blair Cabinet to rediscover his radicalism only after he stopped struggling up the greasy pole) asks some pertinent questions about Dubya's favourite Military leader, Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan, and the links to TWAT (The War on Terrorism).

If there was a socialist honours system, instead of the current elitist nonsense, the ever brilliant Steve Bell would be high on my list of nominees.

90% of white people have no black friends apparently. I make no apologies for referring you again to this hysterical site dedicated to a couple that have lots.
