You Couldn't Make It Up - But Littlejohn Does, Every Week!

I must confess I've never bothered to read the Richard Littlejohn column in the Daily Mail that's enjoyed by millions, and this excellent defenestration of one of his pieces about the recent Japanese Tsunami not only confirms that it's right to give the man's malicious mutterings a wide berth, but also begs the question of how on earth he manages to continue drawing a salary for this crap. Oh, but wait a minute. His employers are the Daily Mail. Well, next time they sign his cheque, they might want to chew on these wise words of his about the appalling Rwandan genocide:

'Does anyone really give a monkey's about what happens in Rwanda? If the Mbongo tribe wants to wipe out the Mbingo tribe then as far as I am concerned that is entirely a matter for them.'

Also worth checking out this passionate, angry piece by the Independent's Johann Hari.

Isn't that your opinion on Libya, Giles?

Not expressed in those terms, no.

If you do not believe in intervention, then surely you believe it is entirely a matter for the Libyans.
