More Great PR For Christianity, Well Done Tony

Autocratic leader gets out of hand in Iraq, tortures countrymen: Prime Minister Blair chooses to invade illegally, kill more Iraqis, British soldiers.

Autocratic leader gets out of hand in Zimbabwe, starves countrymen: Prime Minister Brown chooses to donate £1bn a year to restart economy.

I think I know whose morals I prefer, and it isn't the one with Jesus* on his side.


* And History, let's not forget.

The problem is, as much as Brown wants to help with his donation, it's just going to go into the pockets of Mugabe. I would be very surprised if it got anywhere near where it was needed.

Hope not - looks like Mugabe is finally admitting defeat and going off into the sunset, where he belongs...

Such a pity that Ian Smith conked out a few months ago. I had a delightful image of him and Mugabe in the same Bulawayo retirement home together.

Oh well. Maybe a sitcom with Geoffrey Palmer and Rudolph Walker.

History will be his judge, he said. As may Jesus.

Well let's hope History and Jesus both give him a good bashing. Although that wasn't really Jesus's style, was it?

Hmm. Comrade Bob is not going to give up power. He's telling everybody the West and Mr Brown's Britain in particular are to blame for the country descending into starvation and chaos. But he'll have the billion quid, ta. Only an invasion could possibly budge him. Zimbabweans are flooding across the border into SA in a torrent -- millions, in fact. I don't think they'd mind an invasion a bit.

Hello DavetheF! Yes, it looks like I was being a bit too optimistic up there. Still, he's 84 or something, he might die soon.
