Extraordinary Rendition





















By Beau Bo d'Or out of Banksy - class as usual! http://www.bbdo.co.uk/blog/

As regards rendition, it goes something like this:

1. The UK doesn't allow UK territory to be used for US rendition flights - at least without permission and in fact it hasn't happened at all. Well known fact - everyone knows that.

2. We know this to be the case because a procession of Government ministers have said so - which is nice. Among others, Tony Bliar said so, which is of course hugely reassuring.

3. David Miliband - Foreign Secretary and seemingly one of the less obnoxious members of the ruling junta has just had to eat a huge amount of humble pie.

4. Woops! Those naughty Americans used a British air base to render a couple of characters without telling their staunchest - and of course hugely valued - ally.

5. Mr Miliband pronounces himself 'disappointed'.

6. Any suggestion that the US administration/CIA regards the UK Government as a collection of supine lickspittles to be treated just as they feel like is of course to be deprecated.

I don't know who the government thought it was conning when it denied any knowledge of rendition flights alighting in/on UK territories, but, as ever, the wicked truth will out....

Perhaps you should submit a written application...

Once again the government are going to great pains to convince us that they are merely hugely incompetent and ignorant, rather than the alternative, which is that they're compulsive liars and crooks.

I don't think these things are mutually exclusive though...
