Conor Foley said something yesterday to Fiorili in response to one of my comments on CiF :
'Fio: you can call me Conor - all my friends do - and don't worry about not understanding everything that Merk says, the rest of us often have the same problem as well.'
Well, Conor may not understand my point of view.
Lots of others do as can be seen from the following :

'In the end, it was a lone Spanish magistrate, not a Chilean court, who ensured the arrest of Augusto Pinochet.'
In the end?
In the end it was a British Cabinet Minister who made sure he didn't receive the justice that his murders deserved.
A Cabinet Minister who is still with us.'

'The only people who are really calling this government to account are those who post on the net.
Of course the government wants to control them.'

'"Passports are not issued to us on condition we do exactly what we are told by the state ... If such arbitrary powers are used against absentee fathers, how long before they are used against other people who have annoyed the authorities in some way?"

This one is especially interesting.
The quotation had been used by Toynbee but was taken by her from the Daily Heil.
That whirring sound you hear is Arnold spinning in his grave, drilling his way to revenge in Tuscany, no doubt.
Anyway, when Conor says :
'don't worry about not understanding everything that Merk says, the rest of us often have the same problem as well.'
you know he is talking a lot of pish.
Moral of the story?
Conor, do your research.
