I have been watching the situation in Egypt with great interest, as some know I am fascinated in government, and how people react to movements, so it is only natural that I would be glued to the present situation in this part of the world. Lets hope the tense atmosphere over there is resolved peacefully, BUT. I have often said that people should stand up for what they believe in and good luck to them, no matter your political views we all have the right to protest if we believe something is wrong. And I 'was' of the mind that us Brits 'may' one day be of the mindset that we as a people can change something we see as wrong. However, my bubble has well and truly been burst,:mad::biglaugh:. Just been watching several passengers arrive back in the UK from Egypt that were aboard several planes chartered by the government. All well and good you would think, and whilst one or two complained about the time it took and cost to a degree the biggest complaint was, (I will quote it as exactly as possible): 'We had no meal on the aircraft, just a 'Snack Pack', absolutely disgusting'.:goofy: I immediately want this woman (Brit) to be put in charge of any revolution we have in the UK in the future. I am sure she would ensure hot tea and coffee, biccys and maybe the occasional hot shower for any protesters that took part in the 'revolution'. If I wasn't laughing I would cry. I know, I know, this was a very small snapshot of what some thought, but she was very SERIOUS in her comments. Does she not realise that people have died in the name of 'Freedom' in Egypt,:wacko:. Hey ho, Ok, so she may have been a bit 'peckish' but please give me a break. She could still be in Egypt, wondering what the hell was going to happen to her family, but no, her major concern was that she 'only' received a snack pack on board the flight. God, it must have been hell on earth for her to have to sit through a six or seven hour flight without sufficient sustenance. I was surprised that she didn't complain about the in flight entertainment. I am sure the cabin staff could have done better and maybe shown 'Cuba, The True Story',:biglaugh::biglaugh:. Lets hope she is not representative of all Brits, if she is the next demonstration in the capital many involve a fine selection of pastries, sandwiches and a selection of hot and cold beverages. As I said, I realise this was a very small snapshot, but I will stand by my morals and demand the lady in question be elected to high office immediately and given the post of, 'Leader Of The Free, And Keeper Of The Faith During The Revolution'. I am sure her efforts on the 'catering' front would be appreciated by the die hard revolutionaries whose work and effort has led to this situation.:policeman: Cheers Tony.
