At Last, A Possible Solution

Britain's Head Boy has hopes of livening up next week's rah-rah in Birmingham with a bit of wog-bombing, which always does so much to keep the peace in the Conservative Party. Daveybloke has taken the precaution of buttering up the Milibeing, and Labour's business spokesbeing has expressed cautious enthusiasm. Labour's spokesbeing for international development, Jim Murphy, blathered happily about America's attempts "to stop the humanitarian slaughter" and proclaimed, in case anyone doubted it, that "The Labour party is not opposed to trying to save people’s lives", especially when there are so many exciting toys with which to make the attempt.

If all this were not enough to settle the ethical case for yet more death by democratisation, Jack Straw has also conferred his approval. "Last year’s debate was about strikes against the Assad regime," said the Reverend Blair's minister for humanitarian slaughter. "This year’s debate is a very different one - it is about strikes against the enemies of the Assad regime." This reorientation of the moral compass is necessary because the Middle East, despite all our efforts, remains a remarkably changeable place.

    Now, now. We all have to face unpleasant facts in our lives, even unto the continuing near-existence of Jack Straw.
