I really didn't believe us English had a successor to GWB's poodle until I read this:
Gordon Brown declared last night that Britain "will lead" the international campaign to stop Iran's nuclear programme, calling for new sanctions on oil and gas investments in the Islamic republic if it fails to comply with UN resolutions.
Does this really mean that our unelected British Prime Minister will send British squaddies off again to fight some damned silly war?
G*d knows we're struggling enough in the (4th, 5th?) Afghan War, and have been sent packing from Basra
