Add two more people to th elist of those deserving a slapping for using Thursday’s bombing to justify their moronic plans and world view-
Charles Clarke has admitted that ID cards wouldn’t have stopped the bombing, but we need them anyway because, despite being useless, they would somehow protect us from future terrorism.
He also suggested that in future civil liberties might have to be curtailed.
Consideration would need to be given to checks on people boarding tube trains, ID cards and data exchange, he says
Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade said that the bombing was a good thing, because it took attention away from less important matters like global warming and African aid.
We still don’t know how many people died and these pricks are already lining up to take the names of the dead in vain. Clarke should be subjected to stop and search every time he leaves the house and Kilmeade should be stripped of all his belongings and shipped off to a refugee camp. They’d shut up when they knew what crap they were speaking.
Update Mediamatters has a round up of even more crassness from Fox, including “this would be a great time to buy shares” and “what a shame it didn’t happen to the French”.
