George W must be quaking in his boots

So heartening to see world leaders telling George W exactly what they think of his immoral, hypocritical, not to mention illegal, holding of prisoners in Guantanamo without trial.

'Last night, the secretary general, Kofi Annan, said: "Sooner or later there will be a need to close the Guantánamo [camp]."'

Sooner or later? What's wrong with NOW?

'Peter Hain said last night that the government believed the camp should be shut. Asked on the BBC's Question Time programme whether Tony Blair supported that view he said "I think so, yes".'

'I think so'? Compellingly convincing. Hard hitting to the core. These guys don't mince their words. Reassuring to know the world is in the hands of such razor sharp, clear thinking, straight talking minds.

The phrase 'pussy footing' springs to mind.

(And whilst I'm at it, how is what you're doing in Belmarsh any different Mr.B?)
