Chilean miners-all 33 rescued! Joy!

Recommended Posts

I doubt it, - bluer, don't you mean? :hihi:
That's the headline we are waiting for, Cameron found blue.

 

I like this Chilean president, he seems to have charisma and conviction, and I can imagine him being easy to want to elect.

The last person I thought of like this was President Obama, and he has turned out a good bloke.

Why haven't we got anyone that seems trustworthy or stands out like that ?

Even the new Labour leader seems a damp squib and won't charm the skin off a rice pudding.

Because non of them dare make a move without the approval of the Dirty Digger.

He has it sewn up as far elections are concerned in this country.

What Murdoch says, is what goes.

 

No matter what happens in this country, it has to be passed by Rupert Murdoch, otherwise it is finished.

Every government from the nameless one to now has dependend on him to gain them power.

They do his bidding.

Chilean president to visit Cameron.

 

Pro-mining president meets the leader of a party whose legacy was the murder of mining.

Im not sure he is pro-mining, but he has done a lot more for miners welfare with the rescue of just 33 blokes than could be claimed by one ex Tory leader.

There's a Panorama about all this, at 8.30 if anyone's interested.

 

One thing that received criticism from some of the miners was the attitude of the authorities in the long wait between discovery and rescue. One miner was slagging off the psychologists pretty much as soon as he appeared above ground. I read at the weekend that it was a deliberate tactic - a tip from NASA in how to corral the frustrations of a remote crew in a small space. By being just annoying enough towards them, the captive charges are more likely to unite and direct the focus of their irritations at the powers that be rather than each other. Neat trick.

Oooh, that is a neat trick indeed and so obvious when you think about it.

 

I saw that Panorama was about this and will be watching, I hope that I don't start crying again!

Ha ha! Does Geoff pay Worjackie, then?

 

Thanks for the heads up, will watch on catch up - I was too busy hissing at Sir Philip Green, Cameron's buddy, and the hundreds of millions of taxes he avoids on Dispatches.

Very moving, I started to well up again.:( Edison and his colleagues have a long road ahead of them. That poor father who had 2 sons trapped, I cannot imagine what he must have gone through, I somehow missed that story in all the reportage. It was heart breaking to see him blaming himself for not having been able to provide them with a better education.

I disagree. I personally find it distressing to follow disaster coverage and don't go out of my way to watch any of it. This, however, was completely different, for once we had a positive outcome and I only started to watch it after the safe release of the first few miners, when it was apparent that the rescue mission was a success. Had it all ended in tears then I would not have watched last night's programme.
