Who's Not Laughing Any More?

BBC News - Maldives government complains of spoof atlas omission

The Maldives' acting high commissioner in London has written to the newspaper's editor seeking a clarification and apology.

He said the post had implied that his country's climate change plight was a con-trick, and this, he said, was despicable and hurtful.

However, he added that Maldivians had as strong a sense of humour as anyone.

Aaah Diddums...


That's the thing. In order to highlight their plight (Maldives will disappear underwater because of carbon dioxide) one would have thought it would have been a good idea to point James's blog as fact. Are they suggesting that their islands are not in imminent danger? They can't have it both ways, surely?
