War is Peace. Unity is Strength.

Prime Minister Gordon Brown warned the nation that the threat would be "long term and sustained".

Fortunately, there's always the manual :
Since about that time, war had been literally continuous, though strictly speaking it had not always been the same war. ... Oceania was at war with Eurasia and in alliance with Eastasia. In no public or private utterance was it ever admitted that the three powers had at any time been grouped along different lines. ... Officially the change of partners had never happened. Oceania was at war with Eurasia: therefore Oceania had always been at war with Eurasia. The enemy of the moment always represented absolute evil, and it followed that any past or future agreement with him was impossible.
Apparently, June was the wettest since the beginning of time. The 21st century is gearing up to be the most deliberate, "sustained" bout of racist-fueled anger management classes for the same period. Or, perhaps, culturalist rather than racist - but where's the line between the two?

Danger all around
Enemies hide in the fog
Fear and War endure.

... wettest since the beginning of time or since the beginning of his-story?

... obviously the gentle showers of the Blair era are giving way to fierce presbyterian storms ...

... and Noah did build a floating prison, and brought in two of each kind, according to the list prepared by the security forces ...

... and for ninety days and ninety nights they sailed on the waters of the earth ...
