Bainbridge readers won't have a clue about whom I write but, now I'm back in the UK, I can indulge in a little vermin goading.
I have no brief for the flashy George Galloway and his ludicrous "Respect" movement, but I despise even more the gutter ghetto school of reptile reporting, of which News of the Screws' 'Sheikh' Mah'moud is poster child.
A duty *and* a pleasure, therefore, to lean a puny shoulder to the wheel and do what one can to spoil the rodent poseur's pitch.
Alas, no danger of his downfall or sudden unemployment, thanks to the greed and vanity of MM's "victims". But it must help a *bit* to post even hazy shots of the swarthy George Best-lookalike.
^5 to Galloway for lining him in his sights.
Naturally, one wishes safety for his family, but the reptile fakir's own hide is, surely, fair game after the years of slimed exposés?
Addendum: a Brit reader suggests that if I'm read in foreign parts, I might include samples of the putrid nature of Mu'q'moud's employers.
Good point. I'm just sorry that the current issue catches it on a slow news day and hence in reserved and tasteful mode.
Prince Harry and the Boobs: At least you get an idea of the imaginations at work in bringing the rag to press - all those soi-disant insider quotes about what Harry and his bird are meant to have come up with verbatim.
All manufactured, of course, as even lowliest readers know full well: not even a cockroach in Buckingham Palace's deepest pantry would give such bog bumpf the time of day, let alone pass on any "quote".
