there's something nasty in the woodshed...

what pieces of nastiness/corruption that your government hoped to keep concealed in the garden shed have recently emerged? in our case of course there are many to choose from but we have been discussing recently the dreadful case of the 'lockerbie bomber' - where an almost certainly innocent man was jailed for terrorism in the name of political expediency.

The only thing I can really think of as "in the woodshed" was the Maralinga nuclear testing site in the 1950s where aboriginals were heavily radiated, to say nothing of the soldiers the army used as guinea pigs, but this all came out some time ago. The Brits were involved in that as well. The current government appears, at least at this early stage, to be relatively transparent. The last government, however, was a different proposition. They tried to have an Indian doctor charged under terrorism laws because a cell phone he had once owned he gave to a distant cousin on a trip to England, and that cousin used it in an attempted terrorist act in Britain. Not quite a Lockerbie, but shows the mentality of professional politicians and the inbred pit bulls who serve them. Lash
