God.co.uk is an Englishman


In a great victory for evil drug companies, India’s parliament, under severe pressure, has passed a drug patent law that will result in the deaths of millions of people not only in India but in places like Africa that relied on cheap Indian generic drugs.

To prove how modern and yet traditional he is, Tony Blair spoke at a church today. Well, a “church.co.uk” webcast. With the Catholic church urging Catholics to vote Tory, and Michael Howard advocating reducing the cut-off date for legal abortions from 24 to 20 weeks, Labour had been trying to keep religion out of politics — “We don’t do God,” said Blair’s spin doctor — but evidently God.co.uk is another matter.

After writing that, I checked. There actually is a god.co.uk website, where you can download the New Testament in MP3 format.

Eric Umansky asks if the use of a .gov url makes this
strengtheningsocialsecurity.gov propaganda site illegal. If it makes him feel any better, there’s also, heh heh, a
strengtheningsocialsecurity.com.
