02-07-2003 09:52TONY Blair's relationship with the unions sunk to a new low yesterday as the RMT slashed financial support for the Labour Party. The country's biggest rail union said it would now donate just £12,000 a year, compared with £150,000 in 2001, and seek closer ties with other political parties. General Secretary Bob Crow said branches should be allowed to support other parties because New Labour had "betrayed" its grass roots.

They seem to try to do their bit but the bit just doesn’t cut it as the rest of the Hollywood puss machine pumps out its standard line of crass Gestapo snuff movies glorifying jarheads on steroids with their drug addled gnat brains invading and destroying other people’s countries. Be it a shoot’em up black hawk downer rescuing private Ryan’s girlfriend Jessica’s lunch, or just a prayer pow wow seance with Bush and what’s her name in a graveyard in the heartland of the homeland it just gets kitschier all the time.
