    A bit bloody late, but I suppose this gives hope for the future, and may be in response to discussions with the Obama team.

    A good start would be to suggest Israel stop invoking the WoT trademark.

    Either a member of the UK government has grown a pair of bollocks - seven years too late - and is finally questioning the Bush binary world view, or the bumfluffed one is getting his face in the news again as he makes his second - or is it third? - push for the Labour leadership?

    Since Mr. Miliband's quibble seems to be with the language used and not the actions perpetrated, I'm guessing it's the latter.

    So this cretin has finally decided this after 7 years. It's not like people weren't saying this as soon as the war on terror was declared.

    The entire British elite are clueless and require immediate removal. They are of absolutely no use to anyone but themselves.

    A self-serving and useless elite is hardly a problem confined to Britain.

    No, but other countries have had occasional bouts of competence.

    And of course this sudden trashing of Bush foreign policy doctrines has absolutely nothing to do with what happens next week :rolleyes:

    I cannot believe that you are questioning the sincerity of the esteemed Member for South Shields!
