Scratch that last, they weren’t supposed to be there. All this “End of the world” scenario is simply a distraction away from the economic problems that are in reality engulfing us. Brown’s hoping we won’t notice the theft from our wallets if we’re all scanning the skies watching for bad guys. It’s like living in a badly-written airport paperback.
How dumb are we supposed to be? Some politicians have got the excuse “I know they’re dumb because they voted for me” but Brown doesn’t even have that. Where do his PR people get the idea we’ll be impressed by anyof this?
