As the start of the chaos hits home, it’s good to recall the wife’s comment on my post yesterday. She said
I am pleased to report that as my bus wound its weary way through the city to get me home, there was no sign of those ghastly fences.
Hence the main purpose of the fence appears to be to remind Dubya that in needing that kind of preparation, he is not welcome anywhere – not even on *friendly* soil!
Can’t say fairer than that?
