Keep 'em coming, let me know with a comment and I'll link, let's share the love. Unless you are a conspiracy theorist, in which case Just.Don't. Bother.)

*high five*

and big, big thanks again.

I seemed to hit a nerve this week with the 90 days and 90 nights post, and shot up the blog rankings like David Blunkett's hand up Kimberley's stockinged thigh, but I'd also like to say thank you to all the people who regularly drop by and comment and encourage me. I try to say how much it means , but there really have been times when I have almost despaired, and the kind words of strangers has lifted me immeasureably.

A special big clap to Gary who has gone and spoken out on BBC News and BBC News 24 about the events of this week in which Blair tasted defeat for his disgraceful despotic abuse of democratic process.
Gary says 'Well, I've read everyone's replies to your last 2 or 3 postings and got the strength and determination and decided to go for it and let us "disenting, traitorous, pathetic liberals" get some publicity and say what I felt. '

Go Gary!

This was a good week for democracy, and a bad one for an arrogant Prime Minister. Hooray for all of us, and our seditious, traitorous, disloyal, don't-know-what's-good-for-us ways.
Hooray for pathetic liberals!

I'm proud to be one. Especially this week, especially with all of you.

My pleasure, Rachel... my pleasure. Because if I can't do anything else, then at least I can help your words find their way to a few more people out there. As our transatlantic blog-commenting cousins are all too fond of saying at times like these: "Woo! You rock!"

Another proud and "pathetic" liberal here.

Keep on, Rachel.

Blimey, Rachel, now you've got me embarrassed. I'm just one of many who feel the same, but lucky enough to have the opportunity to state my feelings.

Keep it up & all the best,

High five back! [Misses and hits you in the eye]

As one of my commenters said, yours was a "Brilliant post by someone who should be listened to."

Glad we seem to have won this time!

"pathetic liberals"....

Is it pathetic to stick to your principles, even when someone has attacked you and threatens you again?

We are the strong ones here, not our detractors.
