Perfidious Albion

For some reason the phrase "Perfidious Albion" got stuck in my head this morning and I googled it to figure out what the hell that meant. It apparently means "treacherous England" and was a phrase Napoleon used on army recruiting posters.

Once again, any random phrase you google on the Internet has a 50% chance of bringing up a political link, which is how I found "Perfidious Albion and the lying American".

"A great many people, in editorial offices of newspapers, as well as government offices in Washington and London, know very well that the intelligence for which David Kelly killed himself was fabricated. They already know that the stream of little lies has begun. They know that it isn't worth their career prospects, let alone their lives, to expose them."
