An Apology to India in a Picture
Omigod, he's got photos of the 'real India' | Hugo Rifkind - Times Online
Bob Marshall-Andrews once called David Miliband a “pillock on his gap year”. Bearing this in mind, I think it was rather brave of the Foreign Secretary to spend a night last week in a thatched hut in rural Amethi, experiencing what his host, Rahul Gandhi, called “the real India”.
Within a few days, however, he was telling Indians that they didn't understand Kashmir and that he did, and behaving so condescendingly towards a venerable septuagenarian Foreign Minister that it's a wonder he didn't actually pat him on the head. Despite such a promising start, his trip to India was by all accounts a raging disaster. If he had any sense, he'd go back in a few months and say sorry. Like Jade Goody.
Any excuse to republish this picture of the prat, that he represents Her Brittanic Majesty and us is an utter disgrace. I'm embarrassed for my country and hope India understands.
