Smug Plonkers!

Nanny's favourite newspaper, "The Grauniad", has come up with possibly one of the most hair brained schemes for interfering in another country's affairs ever thought up (certainly in the last week that is).

In a fit of pompous, smug, hubris they have decided to mount a campaign to get their readers to write to voters in the USA; with the purpose of trying to influence the forthcoming election.

Quote from the Grauniad:

"The result of the US election will affect the lives of millions around the world but those of us outside the 50 states have had no say in it - until now. In a unique experiment, G2 has assembled a democratic toolkit to enable people from Basildon to Botswana to campaign in the presidential race. And with a little help from the folks in Clark County, Ohio, you might help decide who takes up residence in the White House next month."

Needless to say, the recipients of these "influential letters" are more than a tad pissed off at being told by a bunch of foreigners how to vote.

To read their responses visit the Grauniad website here.

If you really want to piss people off, just try telling them how to vote.

Nanny, when will you ever learn?


  1. Glad to see that _someone_ on your side of the pond understands the reaction by us Ohioans. For some reason, I keep coming across people who don't understand that. I mean, normally, I'm an Anglophile! I have English friends! I'm a fan of Doctor Who!

    But if you push the right buttons, you're going to get a reaction from anyone. I certainly wouldn't expect anybody in the UK to want a campaign letter from me on who should get elected to Parliament. I would, in fact, expect to be handed my teeth. So please excuse my comments about how the Guardian clearly wants the UK to become a US territory, just like Puerto Rico and Guam.

    I should also mention that some folks here in the US -- folks very interested in politics, some of them -- consistently refuse to discuss who they'll be voting for or who they voted for in the past. A secret ballot, they feel, should be secret. So this sort of thing feels even more intrusive to them...and Clark County has a lot of that kind of voter.

    If you have felt powerless by the Grauniads efforts to destabilise the world and make Britain a 3rd World Country... If you feel you have the right to decide who becomes the next Guardian Editor, well now you can!

    All you need to do is email members of staff at the Guardian and tell them how to do their job and who should work there.

    Simply email members of their staff! It couldnt be easier!

    If everyone who fear Terrorism (and those who undermine us) emailed one member of staff per day, they could receive 1 million emails per day. That could really make the difference:,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
