Just effing dumb…

Security at the Asia-Pacific Economic Co-operation forum seems designed to foil terrorists by sheer bafflement, judging by the experience journalists.

They had to fill in a nine-page questionnaire, including every address they had occupied in the past 10 years (with the dates when they had moved in and out).

They were told that to obtain a photo identity they had to appear in person with photo identification. At the Sydney Convention Centre they were confronted by a wall of police and security guards. "You can't enter without your APEC photo ID passes," a guard said, barring the way.

Just Say NO!

Come on people, how long does this have to go on before we act? Escorting President George W Bush's motorcade KILLS!

"Any time there is a presidential motorcade, the officers, that's part of their job, they drive at a high rate of speed," according to the police boss of the latest victim. Another Officer Dies in Bush's Motorcade

Now I’m liberal on these things, but next thing we know some Sydney cop is going separate from one of that city’s gloriously expensive, thundering motorcycles. For what; just so George can’t see stray abusive placards?

Just effing dumb…

Brigadier Andrew Smith (Royal Australian Air Force), speaking to reporters in Sydney said civilian pilots should be aware they would need a permit to enter the temporarily restricted airspace over Sydney during the September 2-9 summit.

RAAF F/A-18 Hornets will be deployed over the city during the Asia pacific booze-up. The restricted airspace zone will encompass a 45 nautical mile radius around Sydney Airport during the international piss-fest.

HMAS Yarra, a coastal minehunter will patrol Sydney Harbour during inane meeting of government leaders and NSW Police Force's new mesh-clad buses were also put on display for the first time. Each bus has a barred cell in the rear.

Methinks some world leaders are fixated on their genital organs rather than reality.

Wouldn't it be delicious if the government just up and said, "You know...this is ridiculous. Go find another pansy to host your summit." Alas...

There are rumours doing the rounds that Bush will pull out. The White House denies, but with live in hopes.
