For those who haven’t seen it, I am reposting the following from Craig Murray’s blog. For those who don’t know, Murray was the British Ambassador in Uzbekistan before being sacked by Jack Straw for protesting too much about torture.
Murry is absolutely right and you don’t need friends on the inside to know. Britain joined the US over the weekend in vetoeing a call for a ceasefire yet Brown’s spin meisters put out a press release saying he is supporting a ceasefire.
A murderous, lying New Labour shit.
Brown is appeasing domestic horror at the Israeli massacre in Gaza by calling for a ceasefire. Meanwhile British diplomats on the United Nations Security Council are under direct instructions to offer “tacit support” to United States’ efforts to block a ceasefire.
I have been told this directly by a former colleague in the UK Mission to the United Nations.
A footnote on the uses of obscenity – 7,200 people read this entry between 15.30 on a Sunday afternoon and 08.30 on a Monday morning. That’s normally the slowest time of the entire week.Amazing what a catchy heading will do. Besides, if you think the title is obscene, how do you describe what is happening in Gaza?
