Dead Men Left

This arrives from Chase Me Ladies, I'm in the Cavalry, run by one Harry Hutton. I stumbled across it via Normblog, so ta very much to him; Norman may be completely wrong about the war, but at least we can both agree that this Harry chap is jolly amusing. Continuing Dead Men Left's inappropriate fixation with Al-Qaeda's top funnyman, Harry says:

I was leafing through Abu Hamza’s sermons on the beach this afternoon. OK, he’s not everyone’s cup of tea, and I wouldn’t vote for him myself. I disagree with him about the need to blow up London; nor do we see eye to eye on the subject of flying airliners into buildings (he’s for, I’m against.) But in his wider argument that the UK is a moral cesspit and that the British are filthy drunken animals, I thought he made some valid points.

"They want only to look at nude pictures, go to football matches, have a few pints and go to sleep." This is not an ignorant ill-informed caricature; it is actually quite accurate, and the only riposte I can think of is that it beats chopping people’s heads off.
