How Soon They Forget Their Sins?
UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown said that Senator Kennedy would be "mourned not just in America but in every continent".
"Even facing illness and death, he never stopped fighting for the causes which were his life's work. I am proud to have counted him as a friend."
Straight off his marks comes Snotty, " I come to praise him". What, Jimmy? This IRA lover of British soldiers' murderers, serial adulterer and failed Presidential Candidate to be hailed a hero? Well stuff you Jimmy, some of us have a real sense of morality and penance. Like Prescott, father Ted whisked a young, impressionable girl away from a party for a meaningless, gluttonous shag. In his drunk and aroused state he hurtles off a bridge, like some Japanese wind god. Whoops, better get out of here smartish. "Girl, what girl?"
Very Labour, very Jimmy.
