Man to invoke ancient bat curse on Boris Johnson

Now I know I'm not especially well known for my charitable feelings towards Boris Johnson, but even I think that this is going too far:

In an extra ordinary event angry Londoner Mark McGowan is to invoke an ancient curse on the new mayor of London Boris Johnson.The curse will be delivered from the south side of Tower Bridge facing the GLA building on Friday 13th June 2008 at 12 noon.

The curse will take up to 4 hours to be sure of total effect, as it is extremely complicated and includes bats blood, herbs, ameryst, the legs of a spider and the burning of an effigy of Boris.

Bloody hell. Do you think that City Hall's own Prince of Darkness will be in attendance?

Four hours! That's dedication to the curse, I mean cause :)

Four hours? That's 66% of the time Boris will spend answering questions for the press per year.

66.6% perhaps. Oh dear. Maybe I should go and get myself some ameryst.

It seems worth pointing out that McGowan is a performance artist who barely seems to believe in anything he does. He's the same one whose work allegedly consisted of keying cars for a while, bringing him some notoriety, which is, I think, the main point. Prior to this, a lot of his performances were just out and out crap - crawling from New Cross to Camberwell with a ghetto blaster on his back and some sheep's wool etc. The point was, he always notified London Tonight or similar and they usually trooped out dutifully to laugh at the funny artist, not realising they were, themselves, the work. In gallery shows of his work, he simply shows videos of the news coverage he receives.

Bugger. We've already got one of those in City Hall. The last thing we need is another one wailing and burning things across the river.

It's true. It's hard to see how it's going to help. Unless the curse miraculously works, despite the insincerity of its invocation.

Well, if we're going back to the time of curses, I'm sure it won't be long before we get another Guy Fawkes!

This man obviously doesn't know much about curses. If you curse a well meaning innocent protected by God, (Mayor Johnson), the evil in the curse bounces back to the power of three on the perpetrator. Even if your victim is not innocent, the power of the universe will make the curse backfire to the power of three, because it is a malicious act to curse others and against the laws of the universe. (NOT JOKING).

PS. If you dislike someone and wish they weren't in authority, the best thing to do is to pray for them and pray that their decisions are affected by divine guidance, and if you are truly sincere, that will help the situation. You don't have to be religious to believe in the power of the mind and the power of prayer. It is damn silly to curse people, because it truly does backfire.

You are slightly scaring me with the extent of your knowledge on curses Angela.

Is there something you're not telling me? Whatever it is, please don't curse me. I am not such a well meaning innocent and so am probably not protected under the God insurance scheme you mention.

I was born with six fingers on each hand, the sign of the witch . (ACTUALLY TRUE).

I researched curses when I was writing something and it is extremely interesting. You are not a bad person, but if you were under attack, I would try to get you off the hook spiritually. If someone is sick, and people pray for that person, medical science has proved that the person is more likely to recover, they have run medical trials on it.

There is an oil people can buy in a certain shop in London to harm others and the shop owner told me people try to avoid the bad karma if they use it, but they can't.....

Anyone who messes around with bats, voodoo, sticking pins into dolls etc. is asking for a karmic slap in the kisser.

PS. Led Zeppelin were supposed to have made a pact with the Devil. Robert Plant had a dreadful accident and his son was killed. Jimmy Page became a heroin addict, while John Bonham.... you know the rest. The only one who wouldn't do the pact was John Paul Jones and nothing bad happened to him.

If you curse someone or do something very bad, you are supposed to be able to escape the bad karma by doing good works. i had a friend, who umm, well she sort of did bad things with men for money. Ever helpful, I told her of the above and last time I heard, she was collecting for the Red Cross. BE WARNED, BLOGGERS ON THIS SITE. DO NOT BE TOO MEAN TO HIM. (our new Mayor).

How many thumbs though? What do you do for gloves?

Tom you are getting to be a big fat pain, do you know that? i truly was born with six fingers on each hand, and the doctor had to inject them to make them shrivel up. I also have two thumbs. In medieaval times, this was thought to be the sign of a witch and I would have been burned at the stake.

You may laugh, mate, but psychic things are VERY SERIOUS.
