Global Junior Prefect Steps In

Some Islamic terrorists have attacked a shopping centre in Nairobi, presumably not in retaliation for Kenya's recent attack on Somalia. While we wait for the Reverend Blair to update us on the subtleties, Britain's Head Boy has called a meeting of the Cobra emergency committee. Of course, much of the Conservative Party thinks that Kenya is still part of the Empire, but our puce-visaged Baby Churchill probably has a more pragmatic motive: the Labour Party conference has just started, and Daveybloke still blames the Milibeing's timid objections for depriving him of the chance to inflict a bit of collateral damage on Syria. Anyway, he had a bit of a burble about how absolutely sickening and despicable it is to kill civilians when one has to do it face to face rather than at the push of a button, and threw in a bit of a blather about theological semantics while he was at it. Those who claim to commit acts of terror in the name of a religion are, it appears, deluded: "They do it in the name of terror, violence and extremism and their warped view of the world". That's what makes them so much more sickening and despicable than white, Western, quasi-Anglican, radical right-wing wog-bombers.

    Well of course the Islamic militants have given him a trump card by killing some whites, unlike the Islamic militants in Iraq who, on the same day, killed 'at least 60' and the Islamic militants in Pakistan who killed 'at least' 80. It seems all those killed in these two lesser incidents are safely, anonymously, foreign.

    On Twitter on Monday morning, Cameron added: "I'm cutting short a visit to Balmoral to return to Downing St to chair Cobra late this afternoon, dealing with the Kenya terror attacks." - he actually used the word 'Cobra' to describe a government meeting; does he think we're all twelve years old?

    Apparently it's a New Labour acronym for Cabinet Office Briefing Room A, and there is no basis at all for the idea that the first two letters were added on to make it sound more like the Sylvester Stallone film.
