I have a soft spot for Bob Crow, he’s a very dedicated trade unionist and speaks his mind.
So The Sun’s statement is all the more enjoyable:
“An article on 15 September reported RMT General Secretary Bob Crow had a union-subsidised home and luxury car.
In fact, Mr Crow’s home has never been subsidised by the union and he does not own a car, union or otherwise, and champions public transport.
We are happy to set the record straight and apologise to Mr Crow. “
News is just filtering out from Nigeria that some 13 containers of weapons, more than likely destined for Gaza, have just been intercepted.
Update 1: Now some pearls of wisdom from the ‘moderate’ Hamas leader, Mahmoud Al-Zahar.
Mr. Al-Zahar gives Reuters his views:
“”We have the right to control our life according to our religion, not according to your religion. You have no religion, You are secular,” said Zahar, who is one of the group’s most influential and respected voices.
“You do not live like human beings. You do not (even) live like animals. You accept homosexuality. And now you criticise us?” he said earlier this week, speaking from his apartment building in the densely populated, Mediterranean city.”
