30-03-2004 18:25If the Vicar of Dibley is the nation’s third favourite comedy (appropriate enough, as it’s a third rate show), Ann Clwyd’s sermons ought to studied more carefully by scriptwriters and cast members alike. Comedy abounds in her latest Guardian elegy to Iraqi "freedom" , a dazzling commixture of imprecation and implication, hosannah and high praise, invocation and intimation. Clwyd, in a curious way, makes the war on Iraq seem the result of desperate appeals by Indict, the commission she headed to try and get Saddam Hussein and his band of thugs nailed in an international court of human rights, in absentia. Those attempts, she explained, were blocked by Russia, China and France – and further adds (perhaps with a Welsh cackle?) that Hussein is now to appear in court, defended by a French lawyer. French and a lawyer! Where will the perfidy end? Well, even the devil must have an advocate you know...

30-03-2004 15:29We need immediate funds to support the workers assembling Levi jeans in Haiti. Thirty four union members were sacked on 1 March. Without pay for over four weeks, the living situation of the fired workers and their dependents is critical. In order to help those workers carry on the fight for re-instatement and for recognition of their right to form a trade union, the Haiti Support Group wants to provide a donation of US$1,000.

30-03-2004 14:27Indignation took hold of the whole world as soon as news transpired of the cold-blooded murder of Transylvania’s spiritual leader, Count Dracula.
