Even a broken clock is right twice a day

I had a good laugh when I read this:

Outspoken Respect MP George Galloway has finally been allowed into Egypt after being detained and spending the night in a cell.

The Bethnal Green and Bow MP had been detained "on grounds of national security" on arrival at Cairo airport.

He was stopped and detained all night in a cell with several others, a spokesman for his party said.


The MP has now contacted his supporters and he accused Egypt of being "undemocratic police state", his spokesman said.

Of course the main irony here is that he was in Egypt for a mock trial accusing Blair and Bush of "War Crimes and Human Rights abuses". Just to give you an equivalent, it would be like me heading over to Saudi Arabia to protest that Paul Martin and the Liberal Party are against "the democratic process".

There's also this bit:

He added: "Mubarak of course enjoys very warm relations with George Bush and Tony Blair.

Well gee-wiz George, how come I don't hear you denouncing your government for that?! You know if actually spent more time blasting the west's warm relations with Middle Eastern tyrants instead of playing a pussy on t.v. people might actually take you seriously.
