Farty's Fortunes

No Representation Without Taxation

So Hillary Clinton thinks it would be absolutely wrong to release Libyan Abdelbaset Ali Mohmed Al Megrahi from prison over his alleged involvement in the Lockerbie bombing.

As a US citizen, Clinton pays no UK taxes. And this is perfectly right and proper, but it cuts both ways. As a non-taxpayer in this country, it would be absolutely wrong for her to dictate how our judicial system should operate.

All the more so since the US government has consistently withheld evidence all the way from the initial investigation to the trial and subsequent appeal.

To summarize: Dear Hillary, Fuck off. Yours, Scotland.

Just my twopence worth.

I'd like to vote for Mr Farty as our next Prime Minister.

I was gonna write something witty here, but you've said it beautifully. It might be one of the reasons that Obama made her SecState, to get her out of the country for long periods of time. Soz, world...

Not another Jock P.M.!

Mr Farty said...

Liz - Free cake for all!

#Debi - And she can't even get her foreign policy right without help from hubby (qv North Korea).

John - What, you don't like cake?

Will said...

I'm not Scottish, but I'd gladly don a kilt in support of you!

And that's saying a lot as I am from the homophobic Caribbean and could get stoned for wearing a plaid skirt when it's not Carnival season.

Mr Farty said...

Will - I wouldn't mind getting stoned in the Caribbean - oh, you mean that kind of stoned?

Of course his release had nothing to do with any kind of oil deal *cough*.

Sky News pulled it to pieces. Farty, I was in Embra yesterday. I'm sorry I didn't get in touch but I had a full dance card and was only there fer the dae. A mistake - it needed a good week. Next year mebbe. Glesga was pure dead brilliant ... er that's what they told me to say. No it was guid. See I've picked up the lingo. Not impressed by your weather though.

Mr Farty said...

Oh, Daffers, so sorry I missed you. Weather today was ace, bad luck for you. Do come again! x

Lesley said...

Crap. How did I miss this post?!? I must tell you: A lot of Americans over here would like Hillary to shut up, you know, IN GENERAL. GAHHH. (It could be worse. She could be our president. *shudder*)

Mr Farty said...

Lesley - It would be nicer still if all politicians would shut up, but they only seem to do that when they're asked awkward questions, le sigh.

I hate politicians. Why can't cake and wine just rule the world?

Apologies for spamming..well deleting posts. Logged in with wrong account! Grrr.

Mr Farty said...

Jessica - Don't be silly, if Bill was in charge, he'd have been able to free those two journalists where Hillary failed. Oh.

Mmmm cake and wine. Excellent combination.
