First a US General makes a very strange explanation for something awful.
US general: Gay Dutch soldiers caused Srebrenica massacre.
Huh? I thought it was the Serbs what dun it and the Dutch hardly covered themselves in glory but my vague understanding is that this was due to dreadfully silly rules of engagement of the sort that generally go along with “peace keeping” missions.
I saw on the news this morning that the US Teamsters were backing our Unite in the BA dispute. Well that’s odd in itself but when I saw that the current head of the Teamsters is a James P Hoffa…
And finally. I have been watching “Titanic” with Leo and Kate. What a bloody awful movie. I reckon I could get better dialogue if I puked in a fountain pen and mailed it the monkey house. I’ve never seen it from the start before but… Fuck me it’s dreadful. They’ve just had the Oirish scences. And puzzle me this: why do the leading British actors of my generation, Winslett and McGregor feel so hot all the time that they always have to take all their clothes off?
Must be global warming.
