Yes, and the economy with it. The tourist industry has nearly gone away.

Sorry for the static John, CB radio is like this. Yep it's not looking good out there at the moment. If it's not one Middle Eastern country having a punch up, it's another one. Perhaps we should nuke the lot and start again.

Just heard from a colleague who was due in Egypt tomorrow - we will be seeing him in the office instead as his travel insurance was cancelled, as were his tickets and the meeting he was due to have tomorrow. All at the request of host hosts within the Egyptian Government who aren't quite sure they will have jobs by time his meeting was due tomorrow. (They were paying for his visit and had arranged it all)

Killed stone dead any ideas that Egypt might be a democracy then.
Any way, best we keep out of it, plenty of extremists over there happy to turn
on any country trying to stick it's nose in.

The people my colleague was going to see aren't in jobs any more so their call on cancelling the meeting was a "good call". It certainly brings the severity of the Egyptian socio-political situation home when it affects ones work in the UK.

I think that the Army stepped up to the plate this time to head off more unrest. If whats his face had had a real hand on the militray to start with they would have tried to crush any protests.

My prediction is another election of someone who will give the people what they want. Not lips service like whats his face did.

The difference is I was obviously making a tongue in cheek comment, whereas you seriously meant it.

For someone who publicly claimed they knew me, seems to know me not all. Nukes will never be the answer to problems. Also comments you make are tongue in cheek yet my cheeky comments are too sirius for you? My oh my.
