Gaza has no army, no air force, and no navy. It is under attack from Israel, the fourth largest military power on the planet.

Israel has declared that all people within a 3km strip of the border must leave their homes, effectively driving them into the sea.

David Cameron urged Israel to show restraint, and yet since that statement they have killed civilians indiscriminately, including in a school, and a packed market place. America has also admitted to supplying the Israeli's with arms deemed neccessary for urgent purposes.

The UK government has sent £10m relief aid. They'd be better off rebuilding Gaza's only power station, there is little or no electricity after the Israeli's bombed it. Another accident, no doubt.

We are shamed by the non actions of our politicians.

So far during this latest conflict, three Israeli civilians have been killed, three, and yet they are free to commit mass murder on a daily basis.

It's a mad, mad world

The world seems a bit fucked in the head today.

Once again, the leaders of the most powerful nations sit back and do the square root of fuck all as Israel slaughters civilians. In a week of shockingly indiscriminate killing, the death of the four young boys playing on the beach particularly sickened me. They were the same age as my son, just doing as eleven year old boys do, mucking about with their mates.

And then the shooting down over Ukraine of a passenger airliner with nearly three hundred people on board.

Sometimes, the capacity of the human race to heap suffering on each other simply astounds me.

R.I.P Jinxie

Our wonderful little black cat.

October 2005 - 9th June 2014.

Very sudden, but we all got the chance to say goodbye.
