    Well let's see what the office of the Dear Leader (May his words continue to be anointed with leaves of gold etc etc) have to say on this one.

    Anything less than fulsome praise of the hard working boys and girls will not suffice.

    And what is Campbell doing back? (Allegedly)

    BBC Radio News has just reported that Adam Ingram has 'volunteered' to make a statement to the Commons regarding the alleged mistreatment of prisoners by UK soldiers.

    It begs the question: why is Hoon not speaking?
    Lack of credibility?
    Not informed of the situation by his officials (his old favourite)?
    He didn't understand the question?

    The report did not mention whether Mr Ingram would be wearing his Orange sash this afternoon.

    With apologies to whoever wrote "if a man is talking to himself in a wood and no woman can hear him? Is he still wrong?".

    If a chappy has a rifle held to his head but is wearing a sandbag and can't see it - did it happen?

  5. Am I correct in assuming "Never a Billy-Boy" Ingram never raised the issue that the photos may have been faked?

    Wee Adam only said that the photos were 'being taken seriously', and that 'no stone would be left unturned (less the one that John Prescott lives under, naturally)', in the investigation, so he did.
