Mass murder actually


From the New Statesman:

'At a Downing Street reception not long ago, a guest had the temerity to ask Tony Blair: "How do you sleep at night, knowing that you've been responsible for the deaths of 100,000 Iraqis?" The Prime Minister is said to have retorted: "I think you'll find it's closer to 50,000."'

'I think you'll find it's closer to 50,000 actually' will be Blair's epitaph.

As for the terrorists who were foiled attempting to blow up planes over Britain, a coded message: 'The cuckoo has flown the nest and is sunbathing in the Caribbean- I repeat the cuckoo has flown the nest and is sunbathing in the Caribbean.'

That reminds me of when Michael Moore asked Phil Knight to tour the Indonesian Nike factories where 12-year old girls worked, and Knight responded that they he was employing 14-year olds, not 12-year olds.
