So you have to live in the North? I misunderstood I assumed you could just be voting from Cork or wherever you fancied. That certainly makes a lot more sense, than what I had in mind.

This whole by proxy shizz does make me think that I will have to tell my father or mother who to vote for, knowing full well they may use it to elect the Tory or Lib Dem candidate of their choice. (Ma always votes Lib Dem. Pa votes Tory for the Tax Breaks. Thatcher is never a wise topic of discussion.)

Doesn't have to be the North, anywhere in the UK and you're eligible.

I would suggest someone other than your parents for proxy voting.

I know it's just a hypothetical, but the thought of entrusting your voting privilege to someone and having them go off and use it for their own affairs actually makes me quite angry.

I suppose I could it always give it to the candidate in question. I might have to look into this. I'm not sure Nige would want to bother with the bureaucracy...

You can indeed, but I think China would be too far away, because you have to get the papers sent to you and then send them back before the polls close.

I fucking love this interview to pieces.

Alex Jones is a screaming, tinfoil hat wearing schizo (who makes good points), but it's great to see him verbally abuse the shit out of that snide cunt Piers Morgan.

Most fun I've had with a political interview in a looong time.

I'm glad he brought up Morgan's shady past at the mirror.

Still disagree with him though.

Well, Pakistan ain't doing too great. In response to the massive march on Islamabad to protest corruption, the supreme court has ordered the PM to be arrested. That probably won't happen, but what probably will happen is that Pakistan will be pushed into yet another fucking constitutional crisis.

The supreme court is completely backed by the military and the ISI, so if they get their way, Pakistan's basically a military dictatorship again, who will not take as kindly to drone strikes on their territory as the civilian government will. Also consider the recent threat from India that it will not back down over recent clashes in Kashmir.

Summary: Pakistan's more fucked than it already was.

It's a rather bizarre situation, because the Taliban in Afghanistan and the Taliban in Pakistan don't want the same thing. The ISI and Pakistan army created the Taliban in the early 90's, and apparently continue to provide direct support to this very day.

However, the Taliban in Swat valley and the rest of the FATA territories in north-west Pakistan want to overthrow both the civilian government and the military, and establish Sharia law, despite the fact that that would severely reduce support for their Afghan brothers.

Tis fucked!

Here's Wikipedia on the subject:

"The Afghan Taliban and the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan differ greatly
in their history, leadership and goals although they share a common
interpretation of Islam and are both predominantly Pashtun.The Afghan Taliban have no affiliation with the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan and routinely deny any connection to the TTP. The New York Times quoted a spokesman for the Afghan Taliban stating that:


"We don't like to be involved with them, as we have
rejected all affiliation with Pakistani Taliban fighters ... We have
sympathy for them as Muslims, but beside that, there is nothing else
between us."

"Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Omar asked the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan in late 2008 and early 2009 to stop
attacks inside Pakistan, to change their focus as an organization and
to fight the Afghan National Army and ISAF forces in Afghanistan instead."

Jesus, it's almost as bad as the IRA.

So if I got this correct

-The Pakistani and Afghan taliban don't like each other due to difference in politics.
-The military is ready to overthrow the civilian government
-Both civilian and military governments don't like the Pakistan Taliban but support the Afghan Taliban
-India hates the lot of them and vice versa.

Well fuck me, we could just pull out and let them kill each other off.

You've almost got it perfect, except I don't think the civilian government likes the Afghan taliban either.

I suppose we could, the only thing complicating the situation is our good old friends, nuclear weapons.

Ahhhhh.... Nukes.

The most horrific weapon ever designed by man, and yet is responsible for much of the peace in the world today

I'm not sure how I should feel about them.

I read a great article (Guardian, you'll be unenthused to hear, but it's by their token right wing guy) saying that he's no longer scared of nukes, because they've transcended being effective weaponry and have turned into more of a statement than anything.
What he is scared of is drones, with which the world's military shows no indication of slowing interest in and which will become more and more of a feature of daily life.

Here's some fun speculation, how long do you think it'll be before a drone shoots down another drone? I'd say it'll happen by 2016.

I love the constant one upmanship of arms races. They've already got drone proof clothing which is just awesome if you like being alive.

I imagine their first big order will be about 5,000 units, ordered by a Mr Tali Ban, Helmand, Afghanistan.
