More Than It Hurts You
Those pesky human-rights shysters have notched up yet another Blitzkrieg against British values. An enemy of the people at the high court has ordered the Ministry for Wog Warehousing to release a number of asylum seekers from detention, in spite of the possible financial repercussions for those charming people at G4S and Serco. While graciously admitting that victims of torture should not be thrown in the clink unless more or less necessary, the minions of the race-baiting Clegg-pledger Amber Rudd have re-defined torture as something that is carried out only by official state agents. It is certainly an encouraging sign if the Government has finally recognised that the likes of MI6, the CIA and our chums in the head-chopping House of Saud are capable of torture; but the Home Office's moral progress must be slightly undercut so long as it simultaneously proclaims that the business of being carved up, beaten and shot is less torturous when inflicted by Nepalese terrorists or the Taliban. This humane distinction is particularly singular when drawn by an administration that includes the Imperial Haystack, who once equated mere verbal criticism of the wastrel class with Nazi persecution of the Jews. Appearing in court for the Ministry, a thing called Rory demonstrated a similarly rational sense of perspective by protesting that any re-think would be "a radical thing to do", and thus quite at odds with the one-nation, small-c conservatism of the policy as it stands.
