The latest rats to plop over the side of the ship of state are seemingly Clare Short and the Prime Minister Gordon Brown.
Ms Short has said she waited so long to resign in protest at the proposed invasion of Iraq because she wanted to remain as International Development Secretary "to rebuild Iraq," not to stop Mesapotamia's destruction. This gives a whole new meaning to "International Development."
Now she states (M Star January 31) that current Prime Minister Gordon Brown "didn't oppose the war, but he didn't support it." Perhaps he was a "little bit pregnant" as well?
He could have stopped it. He wrote the cheques.
To mix maritime and domestic metaphors, a plague on all the houses of this shameful government's apologists - current and former. How do they look themselves in the mirror?
