Straw: “It was quite dark..”
Oh there is so much I’m tempted to pun, so much, so difficult to restrain myself. Particularly following lunch…

Mr Straw shook the dictator’s hand during a reception for South African President Thabo Mbeki and was filmed by a BBC Newsnight team which was following him around the UN. The footage was broadcast last night and the Foreign Secretary said later: “Because it was quite dark in that corner I was being pushed towards shaking hands with somebody just as a matter of courtesy and then it transpired it was President Mugabe.”
