DEANO’S WORLD NAKED COLUMNIST OF THE YEAR
I’M reading a book called by Robert Harris at the moment.
It’s about a British Prime Minister who orders a secret op in which UK special forces are involved in the illegal kidnap and torture of terror suspects.
The PM character, Adam Lang, has a forceful wife who is cleverer than he is, and currently makes a fortune on the US lecture circuit. Lang was elected PM on a wave of euphoria but left his party’s core supporters feeling betrayed over the “War on Terror”.
Of course, this is all fiction.
After all, Tony Blair said he had “no knowledge” of our secret services being involved in any illegal torture business. And we believe him. Don’t we?
