Oh, dear, whatever next? It seems that Robertson and Jacobson's contention that we don't do torture in the UK is on shaky ground. Allegedly, of course. Well, to be accurate, we don't do torture. The UK "intelligence" services do. Or rather, the US "intelligence" services do, and the British just stand and watch it happen. And it doesn't take place in the UK, because we make sure of that.
Police to investigate MI6 over alleged complicity in torture
Hilarious, in a truly black, sickening way. Still, torture is unlawful: let's trust in the Masons to follow the trail of causation. If the UK intelligence services have been colluding in torture, then there'll be a memo hiding in an archive file, somewhere. And it'll be to or from somebody senior, too, I suspect.
And if anybody tries to suggest that torture is necessary to save lives, then I'll fucking crucify them - one cannot call oneself civilized (as I understand that word), whilst one is engaged in this type of activity, and arguing that it doesn't happen, when one is looking with averted eyes, just looks weak.
Oh, and one last thing: let's not get into a game of semantics, as to whether waterboarding constitutes torture, or not, as the fucking imbecile Bush did. I suspect that waterboarding is the least of it, but in any case "torture" is clearly defined in Law, and any activity that is carried out for the purpose and effect described is torture. End of argument. Why have you appointed such utter cretins to the highest offices? I'm beyond words.
