I was going to write a quick post about remembering those who are suffering while we’re eating and drinking twice our own bodyweight and arguing with relatives. But Swiss Toni’s Tonight thank god it’s them post said it all and more, so I will leave the topic in his capable hands.

Instead, have a bit of unusually restrained Mon-sense:
George Monbiot: “The US government is… like a robin attacking its reflection in a window”

and an article about the British Government’s attempt to cover up their deliberate destruction of classified documents, before the Freedom of Information Act kicks in, by burying the issue in the one time of year nobody’s watching (see also: ID cards)…

and a wish that the survivors of today’s horrific north London knife attacks recover fully. Deepest sympathies to the family of the Edmonton man who died.
