"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

The Prize-Winning Tony McNulty

I'm pleased to announce that Tony McNulty, former Security & Counter-Terrorism Minister, has won the prestigious Goodnight Vienna 'No Shit, Sherlock' Award.  Despite being hotly contested by various government ministers, including David Miliband and Jack Straw, Mr McNulty walked off with the prize thanks to a flawless, last-minute performance.

During a Sky interview about the resignation of Eric Joyce, in which he faithfully stuck to the script, he was also quizzed on the NATO incident in Afghanistan:

Interviewer: "General McCrystal said recently that we must do everything we can to avoid civilian casualties in Afghanistan yet, what's happened today, if you believe some reports,  40 civilians blown to bits in a NATO airstrike."  [sic].
McNulty:  "Again I agree with the Foreign Secretary ... and General McCrystal, that this is not the way to win the hearts and minds of Afghanistan civilians."
