The talk Posted by Len at 11:56 Politics Sep 082009 Yesterday you read it. Today you watched and listened to it. You did watch and listen, didn’t you? Well, just in case you didn’t… (The transcript was posted yesterday.)

Rob says: Tuesday, September 8, 2009 at 14:06 I didn’t watch or listen. Any thing having to do with government schools (e.g. Mao T’se-tung’s re-education camps) and I tune it out. Len says: Tuesday, September 8, 2009 at 14:24 @ Krystal: That’s good, Krystal. Did your daughter not have the opportunity to watch the speech at school? @ Rob: That’s sad, Rob. What is even sadder is that you believe you live in China. (You don’t, do you?) Emm says: Tuesday, September 8, 2009 at 15:14 Hey, thanks for posting this. I probably wouldn’t have gone out of my way to watch it (consdiering that I’m a South African living in England) but I am glad that I did watch it. Cheers.

I wonder if I’m the only one thinking how canny a policy it might be to let those fearmongers and wolf-cryers look stupid and let them discredit themselves.
