Gahh! Gaddafi and Galliano

Howdy, So I am back and in full swing I believe... we shall see what happens over the next few weeks. From the title of this blog, you can see who I am upset with right now. And its the G's. No not G as in Don or 'top general' (thats my bilingual part translating for you), rather its  Gaddafi and Galliano:

Lets start with the Libyan Leader. If you are anything like me, you will nod and 'ahhh' about a topic that everyone apparently knows so much about until you actually find out the facts. But if you happened to miss the wave of news reports on the situation because you were sitting exams that required you to answer the same question on s19(1) FSMA and whether confidentiality overrides disclosure over and over and over aga...-


I'm so sorry I was ranting and that is completely off topic! But did anybody else know that 'p' is not just a letter in the alphabet and is apparently part of a VERY IMPORTANT formula:  7/400 x (£1.5m – ‘p’) x PCTCT/’p’. 


Gosh I just can't stop! So being inspired by the somewhat successful overthrow in Egypt, the residents of Libya have taken to the streets to stand their ground in indignant protest. As the masses poured into the streets of Tripoli Muammar Gaddafi made it clear that he was not going to go without a fight. The Libyan leader has held his position for a massive 42 years. It is then no surprise that while the protesters are saying 'times up!', they have been shot at and the bloodshed and death toll has begun to make it look like just another middle-eastern-war-torn-country. 


BUT do not shut down, this is a pivotal moment in history and I believe that we as young people can fight through the desensitisation that the media has subjected us to. If these protests are successful it could have massive implications on other dictatorships and if not massive implications on the way Libya is governed moving forward. I mean can you even IMAGINE having David Cameron (i'm ignoring the other one on purpose) sitting in power for 42 years and refusing to shift, its deep stuff. Anyway this is me just saying watch this space.

Now as for Galliano, a man we have all grown to love whether we want to or not. For those of you that do not know who he is (i'll be the first to admit I heard his name for the first time last year when a friend of mine was chilling in his hotel room as part of her internship!), he is a super-duper, futuristic, furiously fantastic designer. He has currently been suspended from walking the polished halls of fashion house Christian Dior. WHYYY! you scream. Well it is not without reason. 


His marvellously skilled hands were unable to reach his mouth intime to stop him from making some rather violent remarks along the lines of 'your parents would have been gassed' (and no, he was not talking about the slang term that means talking nonsense) and other praise for Hitler in the presence of some unsuspecting Jews having a not-so-nice Latte.


Meh, it makes me a little furious when people think in such ways but being subjected to direct racism in the past it has made me realise it is a fact of life, people will think how they think and we just have to thicken our skin and deal with it. That being said this is only in reference to remarks, anything past that and people should take to the streets of Tripoli! I mean Trafalgar Square.


Anyway I will leave you with a few of Galliano's beauties (apparently he is still making the royal wedding dress HA!)
