Harry: "I'm sorry, I didn't realise it was fancy dress"
Channel 4 News reported in a 30-second item this evening that the National Intelligence Council, a body affiliated to the CIA, conceeds in a report that Iraq is the best place in the world to train as a terrorist. Just when I'm struggling to find the right tone in which to respond to this, I come across the following imbecile description, from the same report, about "globalisation", quoted in the Detroit Free Press :
"an overarching mega-trend, a force so ubiquitous that it will substantially shape all other major trends in the world of 2020."Our priest caste evidently remains hard at work.
