Following from the announcement that Salman Rushdie is to be awarded a knighthood ‘for services to literature’ and the ensuing rush by the Islamic Rabble to shout out that he should be burnt/beheaded/sliced-and-diced; I liked the response of Jack Straw, a Labour politician whose own politics, incidentally, I cannot stand!
However, when asked for a comment upon the crazed, wild-eyed jerks who were threatening everything from ‘jihad’ onwards towards the inoffensive Rushdie, he stated that, while he deplored the comments from the Idiots of Islam, he’s never actually managed to finish any of Rushdie’s works, because of his ‘impenetrable style of writing!’
Like it, Jack !!!
