Of course we all know that going to heaven is the work of the nasty Islamist terrorists in Iraq, don't we. We know this because the experts have told us that the adherents of extremist Islam, or Islamism, are consumed by a raging hatred of Western culture, a fanatical belief in their mission, and the unshakeable conviction that they will ultimately triumph. That is why this evil force must be combated.

George Bush is the man for the job. This master of war has what it takes. He knows how to use his political capital. And he has God on his side.

British soldiers being killed has nothing to do with an imperial occupation of Iraq by the US, UK and Australia. Nothing at all. That empire talk is just lefty stuff, the kind of nonsense that circulates amongst the elitist arts luvvies lobby, the tenured academics, and innercity cafe latte drinkers.

Oh, and while we are on this, we all know in our gut that the left are just a bunch of wowsers. Piers says so. That is all that needs to be said.

Any excuse for a public holiday is fine by me - Kennett took the Labour Day holiday away in Melbourne - I don't think it's the university workers who'll be resisting the call - look to the employer lobby, Piers.
