The political language of left and right has no meaning any more as all of our parties are simply a distraction, while backroom brokers carve up our world and lives, about which we have no say.
PROGRAMME MEDIA : PETITION DES CINEASTES The European Commission has decided to put an end to Media Programming independence. The concern about this abolition extends far beyond the walls of Berlaymont, the glass tower in Brussels that houses the European commissioners. We, European directors and European producers, are extremely worried by the way that Media programming is thus being challenged.

Both marks take the form of a reversed question mark, "⸮". Irony punctuation is primarily used to indicate that a sentence should be understood at a second level.

Hope you didn’t pay a lot for that. New Conservative party logo proposal Given the latest poll results which are remarkable if only for mapping the drop in polarity for the Conservatives over the 2 day period that the poll was carried out just prior to the opening of their Manchester Grim Display of United Front Chatroom, I thought the Conservative party logo should get a retouch. Gone are the vibrant greens, in are the dying ones. Out go the blues in come the darkening skies of economic apocalypse, whose flickering shadows play across that brown and dessicated land.
