    He reminds me of the minister in the first few episodes of ‘The Thick Of It’. I keep expecting to see Peter Capaldi glowering at him in photographs.

    War crimes? He ain’t seen nothing, yet. We’re planning on ending this dispute this time, too. We reckon about 5 megatons yield detonated at about 5,000 ft.

    – WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT —

    For those of you who think the relentless Palestinian rockets do not harm Israelis, please if you can stomach it view this footage of the aftermath of a rocket attack on one Israeli town.

    This is what we have to endure every day of our lives and why any response by the IDF, up to and including flechette bombs and depleted uranium warheads is entirely justifiable and proportionate.

      Seriously I m sure the photo depicts something gruesome and repugnant and I do of course sympathise if someone has been killed or injured or is in pain.

      But what you have circled appears to be a dead rabbit …..

      And for those of you who might claim that the relentless Israelis shelling does not harm civilians, please (if you can stomach it), view the latest ITN footage on the aftermath of a shell attack against one Palestinian school.

      This is what the Palestinian have to endure every day, and why any response by the IDF – up to and including flechette bombs and depleted uranium warheads – is entirely unjustifiable and totally dis-proportionate.

    Is this the level of Foreign Office Diplomacy we can expect under the supervision of Mr Hammond? Well, with just one sound bite he’s outdone the risible Mr Hague. I’ll bet Mr Netanyahu is quaking in his boots.

The Prime Minister feels the pressure:

“I have to say that after the events I have been facing over the last few days, assassination would be a welcome release.”



It was only a tiny tiny collision.
