Hostilities have broken out on a noticeboard at work.

Just before the outbreak of the real war, there was a pre-emptive strike: someone posted an emotional article by Ann Clywd, a Left-wing Labour MP and long-time campaigner on behalf of Iraqi exiles, justifying military intervention by describing atrocities committed in Iraq under Saddam.

This was followed by a word-processed reply. Its author complained of the crudity and lies of the pro-war lobby, then referred to Bush as a "certified chimpanzee" and signed himself/herself "Donald Bumsfeld". Devastating stuff.

Since they appeared I have been asked by various co-workers at the HGMP whether I posted the first piece of paper or the second.

I don't know if I should be proud that I am so difficult to pin down or ashamed that I am considered so crass.
