The boy who cried wolf

Thursday 10th August 2006

Haven't they heard of that story?

The ``dodgy dossier''.

The tanks at Heathrow before the war started.

The North London ``ricin case''.

The Manchester United ``bomb plot''.

The lies about the killing of Jean Charles de Menezes.

The Forest Gate affair.

I could go on -- I won't bother, and I haven't got time to provide links for these and many more similar stories: Google.

I know the moral of the wolf story is that eventually a wolf came and ate the sheep -- just supposing that we were charitable and we decided to give the lying bastards who rule us the benefit of the doubt this time, why do they think we should believe them?
