Last week I had another rant at John Humphrys‘ continued myth-telling. Ann Clwyd, Left-wing Labour MP and long-timer campaigner for human rights in Iraq was his interviewee during the item that provoked that outburst, and appeared on Today in her capacity as UK Human Rights Envoy to the country. Thanks to Harry’s Place I found her full reply to Humphrys in the Times.

Don’t let the Welsh Windbag get to you. He’s up himself on a speak-truth-to-power high and isn’t coming down any time soon. I listen to Today just to appreciate what ideological purity (untouched by real curiosity) sounds like. I think the approach of the handover and the lack of a real revolt is making him a bit nervous that things might actually work.
