So what does the name tee2i mean?

Well it's shorthand for the independence index. This blog takes independence seriously. There's no problem, in principle, with a country being part of a confederation or partnership, the UK is part of NATO. But the EU is a failing confederation and our independence is threatened by continued membership. But there's more to politics than the EU. Neither is politics all about leaning left or rightward on any issue, it's far more subtle than that. It's all down to the quality of life so let's aim high. It's our right to do so.

Undertrials
Undertrials Nearly a quarter of a million 'undertrials' languish in Indian jails. They have been accused of a huge variety of crimes from murder to theft. Innocent and guilty, none of the cases have ever reached court. Many have been incarcerated for decades and some as long as 50 years.

Mayor of London

The race is on:

Dursley Pedersen bicycle
Dursley Pedersen bicycle Not so many weeks ago in a radio interview the present Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, got terribly excited as this year's Tour de France was starting from... London. According to Ken, here was another example, as if it were needed, that London was, under his thumb, doing it right. And then he went on to implore ordinary people to get a bike, to do their bit and 'help' etc. At no time was there a mention of the phalanx of vehicles that follows this event, and the fuel they burn, or the disruption caused.

The widow's mite.

Indonesia is helping us.
Indonesia is helping us. And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which make a farthing. And he called unto him his disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you,That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury.For all they did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had,even all her living.

The new Salem witch trials

bus
bus I went to an all girls' school. At 8.00am of a weekday morning the top deck of the 152 double decker was filled with giggling schoolgirls. Every morning at James' Road a man got on and came upstairs. There would be subdued squeals and a dashing about. One day I was sitting on my own and he sat beside me. He seemed very old, quite scruffy in a long beige gabardine mac and a bit whiffy. He seemed to be breathing deeply, his hand shook and kept seeming to hover over my thigh. I would move my leg away and he would put his hand down. Then the deep breathing would begin again and the hand would hover. I realised something sexual was going on but just gulped and kept my legs as far away as possible. I made sure that I never sat in a single seat again.

Sgt.Joseph Darby.
Sgt.Joseph Darby. Who would have thought that Gordon Brown and Donald Rumsfeld had something important in common? This is , did they lie or were they stupid? Gordon says the EU Treaty is not the same as the constitution. Surely he wouldn't fib? Surely all his friends and colleagues in New Labour wouldn't try to deceive him? The gardeners tried to fool the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland by painting the white roses red. Perhaps he is being fooled? Gisela Stewart, Frank Field and Austin Mitchell are telling him that the treaty is the same as the constitution, but they are merely lowly courtiers

Sgt. Darby was the whistleblower who exposed the Abu Ghraib abuses.He was a star witness under a witness protection painting roses
painting roses scheme. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld praised his " honorable actions" at the start of the Senate hearings in 2004. The subsequent trashing of Sgt. Darby's house and the intimidation his family suffered, meaning that he had to be given protection and a new home was a 'regret' to Mr.Rumsfeld. He simply couldn't believe that this could possibly be the result of his praise. He merely wanted to publicly thank Joe Darby. I suppose even really important politicians make mistakes. It's all a bit rum.
