First thing in the morning what do I hear ?
Salman Rushdie is being KNIGHTED ?
I have read a few of his books and really: NOT MISSING ANYTHING THERE as far as literary works go. Forget Pakistan and Afghanistan getting their knickers in a twist, the whole MUSLIM world ought to.
What is this? Operation: Blair Witch Project . In a reversal of roles the Witch is being accoladed instead.
What has Rushdie done to deserve a KNIGHTHOOD? Well Gee! If they are giving it to Rushdie, then Bin Laden (WHO?) should get one too.
If Khomeni had not issued a Fatwa on Rushdie in 1989, no one would have heard of him. He would have remained an obscure, creepy bastard.
The British High Commissioner to Pakistan, Robert Brinkley said , quote " NO INSULT INTENDED" unquote.
Really Mr.Brinkley? When do you think we can take umbrage? After you have bitch slapped us a bit more? As a nation ? As a religion?
This is all about, sending a message to the WOGS/Bloody paki's as we are so fondly known as in UK. And great timing too I must say.
Now its summer, and all the loonies crawl out of their detonator shacks, so a crapload of people can look forward to a vacation racked with stress and fear.
Nice touch that. What does it do? I want to know? Help inflate prices?
Sorry, but no Cigar.
Its ironical is it not? That we be betrayed by our own kind.
