If I were a cleaner or a dinner lady at the British Embassy in Moscow, then I would be taking my annual leave right about now.
The biggest scandal of all is that Boris Johnson was appointed on the understanding that he would come out with this kind of thing. "For a laugh." Theresa May deserves very severe criticism for that.
The neocon nutters are out in force today.
To attack the people who were right about Afghanistan, who were right about Iraq, who were right about Libya, and who are obviously right about Syria. And about Yemen, come to that.
Unless you were as right as they were about Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya, then you have no right to criticise or insult them.
Why should we believe a word about Syria from the Start the War Coalition?
Remember the lies about Benghazi. Remember the lies about Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction. Remember the lies about Afghanistan and the events of 11th September 2001.
Yet here we are again in the run-up to the Iraq War, when the people who were obviously right were screamed down as traitors, anti-Semites, and all the rest.
But we were still right. Who now denies it?
And we are right again this time.
