A couple of posts ago, I asked my online friend NickM to translate one of his British rants into American English. I couldn't understand much of it. Too much British slang, and too many Nickisms for me to make sense of.
Nick politely declined, but gave us an excellent essay on how to use humor to further one's love life. (Worth reading !)
Well, I eventually dove into Nick's original post, because when Nick becomes incomprehensible and starts speaking in Chaucer, it's usually something worthwhile and important.
The post was about a blogger calling himself Guido Fawkes. (He's in the Libertarian Blogger section to your right.)
Mr. Fawkes has somehow intercepted some nasty Labour Party emails, published them, and it just might be enough to bring down the Gordon Brown government !
Here's one of the first Samizdata pieces about the incident.
This is a bigger deal than our guys nailing Dan Rather's hide to the wall.
This might be a bigger deal than Matt Drudge ripping the lid off of Clinton/Lewinsky.
AND GUIDO FAWKES IS A LIBERTARIAN ! !
We need a Guido. Quickly.
