When it’s not obvious and exactly what you’d expect, it’s good:
China is ready to distance itself from North Korea and accept reunification with the South, according to more leaked diplomatic documents.
One senior Chinese diplomat is said to have told an American ambassador that younger generation Communist party leaders no longer regarded North Korea as a useful or reliable ally.
Okay, there’s a good chance having this out in the open might put the kybosh on it, but I’m still waiting for the horrific inside scoop on how beastly those awful Septics are behind our backs.
There’s more on Prince Andrew, too (who I still think would make a better King than Big Ears … mind you, Noddy would make a better King than Big Ears):
He is said to have launched an expletive-laden attack against British anti-corruption investigators and journalists for getting in the way of lucrative trade deals.
Good for him. Whatever you think about going along with corruption in Foreign Parts in order to secure trade, that’s his job, and he’s obviously capable of standing up for himself.
… said the release of the secret diplomatic cables was an “attack on the international community”.
Not, I think, the Groan et al.’s intention. But excellent.
Update: added the bit about Andy, which I had intended to put in originally, and forgot. I don’t know where I’d be without editable text. Posting half-a-dozen comments in succession like I used to, most likely.
