Bog standard stuff

In the ongoing terror trial, part of the evidence against cranky cleric Abu Hamza is that he compared living in Britain to living in a toilet. If this evidence is accepted as part of the prosecution's case, it would suggest that speech and action were being treated as the same thing. Not that there's anything new in that, as the liberal left in Britain have been doing it for years (e.g. George Monbiot's attack on 'anti-social bastards', based primarily on comments by Jeremy Clarkson).

In terms of the specific remarks made by Hamza, sometimes it is like living in a toilet. If this observation makes you a target of the war on terror, where would this leave my Californian flatmates? Or the authors of such lavatorial reads as Crap Towns?
