A nice quote from this morning:
“At a reception for the Young Britons’ Foundation at the House of Commons, Conor Burns, the Conservative MP, disclosed that he had been with Baroness Thatcher as television pictures were broadcast of the uprising in Libya.
When library images of Blair embracing Gaddafi were shown, Lady Thatcher declared, passionately: “I never hugged him, I bombed him.”
It’s a funny old world, innit! The imperialist fascists Bush and Thatcher bomb Gaddafi because they realize he is very evil and nasty indeed (it isn’t rocket science) while the extremely caring left-wing unintelligentsia who profess to believe in “the brotherhood of man” shake his hand and hug the dictator making millions of people’s lives an utter misery over an entire generation.
This is an excellent example to teach the meaning of the word “irony”.
Oh, have the Yanks seized the oilfields yet? I hope I will be informed asap.
