Queen visits Iraq

By DeusExMacintosh


Business Secretary Lord Mandelson is leading the first British business delegation to Iraq in over 20 years.

Representatives from 23 companies are accompanying the business secretary on a one-day trip to Baghdad and Basra. The group will meet Iraqi government ministers to discuss how they can contribute to the economic reconstruction of the country…

Lord Mandelson stressed that the reconstruction of Iraq continued to be a good business opportunity.

“British business and expertise can play an important role in the development of the Iraq economy,” he said.

Just like they did in its destruction.

The choice of the Business Secretary to head the trade trip should be a fascinating test of diplomatic relations with the new Iraqi administration, given that Islamist preachers in Britain want Mandelson to be stoned for his homosexuality.

    Hmm, I’m not sure what the Quaker peace testimony has to say about BDSM…

    Well the Catholics say it’s wrong of course and at the same time practice it in schools on a regular basis. Hell they invented it. 🙂

    Having given it some thought, the dominance/submission behavioural pattern wouldn’t get past the Equality testimony so I guess it’ll have to be a distinctly vanilla sex life for me…

    The Equality Commission for Sexuality. I think Andrea Dworkin tried to start that one. 🙂

    Trying to get ‘equality’ in that arena without law is like trying to make waves symmetrical. Ye cannae help but play master and servant. Thing is both of you play master and servant. Unless there’s three of you. Then only one carries the whip.

    That was fun. 🙂

    I’m gonna drop it now or it’ll get too weird.

    Happy sundaes.

    […] So here’s a special single frame. The photo is taken from his days with Anjem Choudary, the islamist preacher behind the now proscribed group Al-Muhajiroun who you might remember from the Danish cartoon protests (the “Behead those who insult islam” placards probably ring a bell) and threats to protest military funerals through Wootton Bassett. Supposedly this little charmer didn’t feel that successor group Islam4UK – the ones rescued by the police when they turned up to protest the Royal Anglian Regiment homecoming parade in Stoke – or poppy-burners Muslims Against Crusades – were extreme enough for his taste. The Home Office disagreed and they’re now banned too. Anjem has come up in my cartoons previously. […]
