Here are two thoughts for Warmwell (anonymously!).
The art of spinning did not work for the Lions rugby tour - no amount of rhetoric from Campbell could alter the score - so perhaps there is a message here for the abolition of spin in politics?
Stephen Byers, under oath, has admitted to lying - perhaps we might discover a similar trait if our Prime Minister was to be examined under oath for matters such as the 2001 FMD epidemic and the war in Iraq. He can protest as much as he likes about inquiries, but on no occasion has he had to give evidence under oath - but then again it is possible that he would lie under oath ..............
............. and an Ethics Test
This test only has one question, but it's a very important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand morally.
There is chaos all around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of biblical proportions. You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster. The situation is nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people swirling around you, some disappearing under the water. Nature is unleashing all of its destructive fury.
Suddenly you see a man floundering in the water. He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer . . . somehow the man looks familiar. You suddenly realize who it is. It's George W Bush! At the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to pull him under.
You have two options--you can save the life of George W Bush or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful men.
So here's the question, and please give an honest answer :
Would you select high contrast colour film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white?
