I LIKE TO WATCH:

Bomber was given House of Commons tour by a Labour MP (GETHIN CHAMBERLAIN AND JAMES KIRKUP, 7/16/05, The Scotsman)

ONE of the London suicide bombers was allowed to tour the Houses of Parliament as the guest of an MP months after police and intelligence services became aware of his links to another alleged bomb plot, it emerged last night.

Mohammad Sidique Khan, 30, was a guest of the Labour MP Jon Trickett in July 2004, four months after he had been identified by intelligence officials as a "criminal associate" of one of the subjects of a major counter-terrorism operation that had resulted in several arrests.

cjm,

Much as bashing the English loads of fun for any Jewish Francophone, that's unfair.

David Bonior employed the terrorist Sami al-Arian's son, who is also a Jihadnik, on his staff and had al-Arian himself up to DC frequently. Bonior was House Minority Leader at the time.

Does that make us Eloi too?

it makes some of the u.s. population eloi, and hopefully we -- as a society -- will continue to treat the terrorist situation more seriously then the british. certainly there is "rot" here, but it goes much deeper in the uk. they are a spent nation and should not be treated as important allies any longer. also, never buy a british made car.
