Wie dacht dat het hier zo erg was met de politiek, dit bericht las ik in een nieuwsgroep over het Labour congres aan de andere kant van de Noordzee:
“Jack Straw was heckled today as he told the Labour party conference
Britain was in Iraq “for one reason only: to help the elected Iraqi
government build a secure, democratic and stable nation”.
A delegate, who was 82 years old and has been a Labour party member
for 60 years, was bundled out by security guards after he shouted,
“That’s a lie,” during the foreign secretary’s keynote conference
A second delegate was expelled for complaining at the treatment of
the first heckler.
Mr Straw ignored the outburst, to add: “We can and will only remain
[in Iraq] with their consent.”
