Iraqi Children Worse Off

A report to the UN human rights commission in Geneva has concluded that Iraqi children were actually better off under Saddam Hussein than they are now.

This, of course, comes as a bitter blow for all those of us who, like George Bush and Tony Blair, honestly believe that children thrive best when we drop bombs on them from a great height, destroy their cities and blow up hospitals, schools and power stations.

It now appears that, far from improving the quality of life for Iraqi youngsters, the US-led military assault on Iraq has inexplicably doubled the number of children under five suffering from malnutrition. Under Saddam, about 4% of children under five were going hungry, whereas by the end of last year almost 8% were suffering.

Have a read of the full article, another gem by Terry Jones. There’s been a lot of glowing, airbrushed portraits of Iraq recently.

Let’s not forget that this propaganda serves the same purpose as the happy picture the Nazis painted about the state of occupied France.

Mendacious Tory Gits

The Conservative leader, Michael Howard, today refused to sack a Tory candidate in a key marginal seat who doctored an election campaign photograph.

Mr Howard was forced to publicly condemn the Dorset South Tory candidate, Ed Matts, after it was revealed he had altered a photograph in order to fall in line with the Tory’s hardline stance on immigration.

Another example of the high standards of the Tory party and their fearless adherence to the traditional British values of lying, distortion, manipulation and twattery.

THESE ARE THE VALUES BEING LOST UNDER THE SWAMPING TIDE OF IMMIGRANTS!

IT’S NOT RACIST TO CALL THE TORIES A BUNCH OF LYING CUNTS!
