Gordon Brown To Ban Zimbabwean Cricket Team....

Recommended Posts

Just heard this on the radio! thought I'd woken up in the 70's, how nice to see recycling extends to the student politics of Gordon's youth.

Oh bloody hell, the Zimbabweans are about the only team we're capable of beating and Gordon is trying to ban us from playing them?

What will he think of next, stopping us from knocking the Wallabies out of rugby world cups?!

Interestingly the Archbishop of York, John Sentamu, also takes a hard line against Mugabe and has called for harsh santions.

More interestingly, Sentamu, who came to the UK in 74, fled his native Uganda after being first promoted to the high court by butcher / dictator Idi Amin, and then imprisoned by him for having the temerity to excercise independence of thought. Amin went on to brutalise and wreck the country, or as Wikipedia puts it:

"[Amin's] rule was characterized by human rights abuses, political repression, ethnic persecution, extra-judicial killings and the expulsion of Indians from Uganda. The number of people killed as a result of his regime is unknown; estimates range from 80,000 to 500,000."

All this would of course be well understood by Sentamu. Yep, there is a man who understands the collapse of a state when he sees it. One can only therefore imagine the unbridled fury of our dear leader when he read Sentamu's piece in the the 2nd March issue of the Telegraph. In an artilce entitled Britain has lost its way, says Archbishop, the Archbishop describes the UK as a "broken society", an "unconfortable place to live", where racism has been allowed to flourish, social cohesion allowed to die. And he blames it on the government. Or as the telegraph puts it:

"The Government has failed to find a vision for the country and has not built a cohesive society, the Archbishop of York has claimed.

Dr John Sentamu said that racism had been allowed to flourish and that Britain was no longer the "great nation" it once had been.

Instead, it was a nation in crisis. "Britain is in a very, very uncomfortable place," he said.

In a wide-ranging speech on the country's "broken society", the Ugandan-born archbishop called for Britain to regain the values of "mission and enterprise" that had made it so effective when it had an empire. "

:lol:

Nice one Gordy!

Nice one Gordy!

I'm liking Sentamu more and more.

I always assumed he got York because of...er...'positive discrimination'. However, I've just been reading a book about the CofE, written in 1993, when he was a parish priest. It said he was incredibly popular and had done great works in his local church.

The BBC initially seemed to like him, but I suspect they've gone a bit frosty on him, because, like the novelist VS Naipaul, he's not coming out with the stuff that liberals want to hear from people of darker hues. Good on him I say.
