So Prince Harry's not going to Iraq and Gordon Brown is not going to be opposed in becoming New Labour's leader and the medias coverage of 'missing Maddie' is turning into a circus. The general publics mass out pouring of emotion is trying not to become the sideshow, with help of celebrities and yellow ribbons, we will not be allowed to forget. Iraq has been deemed too dangerous for Harry, but Gordon Brown has not been too dangerous for the Labour party or running the country. The media are playing a dangerous game with bizarre intrusions; focusing on the suspect, which could jeopardise any trial should there be enough evidence against him. The public and celebrities are in danger of going over the top and risk overkill. A soldier unable to fight due to political reasons and an unelected Prime Minister, are a danger to democracy. 'Missing Madaline' has united the world in a democratic way, not seen since the death of Princess Di. But what about the dead children of Iraq and the thousands that die everyday from starvation throughout the world, if that was in the papers and on television everyday perhaps the general public would do something about it rather than remaining blind to their plight.
