Gordon's Arselicking Gestures
Senator Ted Kennedy is to be conferred the honorary title of "Sir Ted" by Her Majesty the Queen.
I'm told that Gordon Brown will use his speech to the joint session of Congress on Wednesday to make the announcement of the Senator's elevation to Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire (KBE) to mark his "services to the US-UK relationship and Northern Ireland". For decades the now ailing Senator from Massachusetts, 77, was a vehement critic of the British presence in Northern Ireland and worked hard to sever it from the rest of the United Kingdom. Some British diplomats viewed him as an enabler of the IRA...
The gesture by Mr Brown is, of course, part of the Prime Minister's courtship of President Barack Obama. The "lion of the Senate", first elected in 1962, broke ranks with the rest of the Democratic establishment in February last year to endorse Mr Obama over Hillary Clinton.
I thought Gordon's team running round the White House begging for Gordon to be acknowledge that he is "Besty Friends" with The Messiah was embarrassing enough but for our Glorious Empire's name to be dragged so low; and it has been dragged fairly low before but this is a new low; by being used to bribe the Obamaweenies by rewarding the murderous old fraud for his years of bile and hate is stomach churning.
