A bit rum

Sgt.Joseph Darby.
Sgt.Joseph Darby. Who would have thought that Gordon Brown and Donald Rumsfeld had something important in common? This is , did they lie or were they stupid? Gordon says the EU Treaty is not the same as the constitution. Surely he wouldn't fib? Surely all his friends and colleagues in New Labour wouldn't try to deceive him? The gardeners tried to fool the Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland by painting the white roses red. Perhaps he is being fooled? Gisela Stewart, Frank Field and Austin Mitchell are telling him that the treaty is the same as the constitution, but they are merely lowly courtiers

Sgt. Darby was the whistleblower who exposed the Abu Ghraib abuses.He was a star witness under a witness protection painting roses
painting roses scheme. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld praised his " honorable actions" at the start of the Senate hearings in 2004. The subsequent trashing of Sgt. Darby's house and the intimidation his family suffered, meaning that he had to be given protection and a new home was a 'regret' to Mr.Rumsfeld. He simply couldn't believe that this could possibly be the result of his praise. He merely wanted to publicly thank Joe Darby. I suppose even really important politicians make mistakes. It's all a bit rum.
