The British lion gets a punch in the nose: three cheers, Israel

It’s too good to be true but it’s still a joy to read.

Ha’Aretz has just reported:
Britain has suspended preparations for a conference on Palestinian Authority reforms that had been scheduled for January 13 and 14 in London. The cancellation apparently derives from an assessment that the chances of Israel approving the departure of PA officials to the event are next to nil...
British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw... criticized Israel's decision not to allow the departure of Palestinian officials.
Three cheers, Israel! And as for Jack Straw, he is, after all the heir to Ernest Bevin, that other foreign minister from the Labour Party, is he not?
