Naughty Britain Must Change Silly Human Rights Laws

December 16, 2009

Where’s the outrage Littlejohn? Clarkson? Anyone?

Britain is being bullied by a foreign state into changing its laws to shield that state’s politicians and citizens from prosecution for crimes against humanity?

How humiliating for Brittania!

After a meeting with the Israeli ambassador, Ron Prosor, the Foreign Secretary, David Miliband, said: “Israeli leaders, like leaders from other countries, must be able to visit and have a proper dialogue with the British government.

“We are looking urgently at ways in which the UK system might be changed in order to avoid this sort of situation arising again.”

As Ron Prosor says “The British Government must take a firm stand to prevent British courts becoming a playground for anti-Israel extremists.”

But making the whole nation a playground for anti-Palestinian extremists with access to an utterly modern arsenal and happy to use it against civilian targets whenever they feel like it…

No problem.

Shurely the Guardian, that hotbed of anti-Israeli prejudice will have issued a series of biting comment pieces on the issue, attacking the willingness of David Milliband to kow tow to a known murderer?

Not a chance. No comment pieces on the Livni affair. No Palestinians or human rights activists (outside the letters page). Not even an Israeli. Silence.

But at least we do have Hadley Freeman’s robust “defence of Christmas gift guides.”
