Celebrating war

"PRIVILEGE for EVERYONE" doesn't make sense even in the basic building blocks of language.

The liberal-fascist coalition government has announced national celebrations to mark the centenary of the outbreak of WWI in 2014. What on earth? Am I alone in finding that weird and inappropriate? And the davidbeckhamisation of language continues with Cameron saying that he wants a massive transformation of the Imperial War Museum "to make it even more incredible". To celebrate the end of WWI makes a certain kind of sense I suppose, that is if you have £50 million to throw at it, but then that would mean the coalition having to wait until 2018 before their next vanity bonanza, by which time they may just be a bad memory of course.

And it has been announced that the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded to the EU. What on earth? I guess it is entirely consistent if you remember that Henry Kissinger won the War Prize for spreading peace back in the day, as indeed Barack Obama did more recently.

The world is howling, barking mad. Nothing makes any sense at all.
