Exit from Gaza

Dubya's Toilet Attendant, AKA S of S Condileezza Rice, has had a friendly chat with Mr Abbas and hey Presto! the Rafah border crossing with Egypt will be open for Palestinians to stream into Egypt and beyond.

The Gulf press is wide and deep in praise of the lady who has (apparently) interrupted her schedule for her onward march to the Far East ( no doubt to attend to Dubya's toilet needs) to fix up this deal. Meanwhile Israel will "look" at Gaza docks, the West Bank routes and re-opening the bombed out Gaza airport.

The F16's practice breaking the sound barrier and Sharon refuses to meet Abbas until he has removed every bomber and every bullet from Gaza - which Abbas says will lead to civil war...

Those guys in AIPAC must be jumpin' for joy.

Plus ca change

"...my Agency is concerned only with winning. We are not regular guys in any sense of the word; we have no code of behaviour which would withstand the light of day, still less an in-depth investigation by the Washington Post. What we do have is a number of specialised operatives who are skilled in inflincting PAIN. Many of them have been doing this for years, they think about it all the ime. I'm afraid that some of them kind of like it. ..Do I have to go on ?"

Black becomes a whiter shade of plae.

Apart from the news that China is overtaking Germany as the worlds biggest carmaker, the rumour mills are chock full of stories that the Met is divided.

The incediarists of July are now widely understood to be unwilling dupes - as long understood wherever clear, logical and consistent analysis rules.

Problems arise, consequently when the diabolism of islamofascist, madrassa trained, youthtul, jihadist is called into play and found wanting.

Compound this with the uneasiness of the Home Secretary whose willingness to accede to a political compromise over the need to bang up the unwashed for 90 days whilst the world's finest Police force engage themeselves on a fishing expedition through their possessions, banks accounts, hard disks and soft porn.

Exuent Blair (regrettably, only Sir Ian of that Ilk) and zut alors the assistance of the finest from the Big Apple to assist those policing the parking regulations of the Capital. Cressida resurgam. ?

Meanwhile expect some surprisingly rapid movement on the decision to introduce the need for nuclear power stations in the UK as well as developments in Idaho (ditto).
