This might be old news, but I heard on the radio that the Mau-Mau terrorists, (now being described as 'veterans' !) are to take legal action against the British Government.

They claim that during the Kenyan Emergency it was the Brits that committed atrocities ! 8O
Of course we know that the Mau-Mau practised passive resistance in the true spirit of Ghandi......
Time to play 'The World Turned Upside Down' !

This will probably cause much rending of garments and gnashing of teeth in the Bliar household.
The Glorious Leader would do anything to aid the terrs and put the Army down, thereby showing that everything that occurred before his tenure was the 'Dark Ages.'
The WMF sits in a similar predicament, should she earn another fortune by representing these savages, or should she stand by the snake-in-the-grass she married ?
Decisions, decisions......

But in the spirit of the season of goodwill I will join Tony & Cheries' well-wishers.



I wish they'd bloody fall down one !

link to a piece in today's S Times by one David Anderson, author of the cheerily-entitled 'Histories of the Hanged: Britain’s Dirty War in Kenya'.

Article is interesting for attempts to draw parallels with Iraq - including the Black Watch! - and successful operation in 1954 to arrest terrorists in Nairobi townships:
The assault on Nairobi that began late in April 1954 was the largest cordon-and-search operation ever mounted. Operation Anvil sealed the city for five weeks. This was no Falluja. There was no “softening up” by bombing. Instead, a deliberate effort was made to capture and interrogate all suspects. It was in the poor African housing estates and slum warrens of Nairobi that the British Army began to hone the skills it would deploy in Basra 50 years later. ...
Interesting also to be reminded:
... when the final great scandal of the British colonial regime came to light in 1959, with the beating to death of 11 prison inmates at Hola camp, it was a Tory — Enoch Powell — who made the critical speech that condemned British actions.
