This week on BBC Question Time, a Tory Blonde, noted that it was generally men having sex that brought about the “super-injunctions” phenomena. Louise Bagshawe MP apparently wished to imply that all these footballers were having it off with other men and that no women were involved whatsoever. Theses are the kind of things you find out on Question Time. I must have been the last person in Britain to learn the name of the apparently gay footballer in the news, but his name was mentioned by every panellist apparently flouting the law, shamelessly.
Belgrade doctors are to decide if the former Bosnian Serb army chief Ratko Mladic is fit to attend a hearing on his extradition to The Hague tribunal. Apparently his alleged war crimes, are not universally recognised in Serbia, and there is also a suspiciously coincidental timing with the Serbian application to join the EEC.
The Tory peer Lord Hanningfield has been found guilty of six counts of expenses fraud. We are told that he will go to gaol, but he continues to insist that he has done nothing wrong. His friends say he is in denial. He seems to think that he was allowed to help himself to the public purse, because of his status, and because he was only doing what anyone else would have done in the circumstances, if they felt they could get away with it.
All fair in love and war and parliamentary expenses, and nice work for lawyers.
