Journalists have asked me on Twitter if I really want to see Alan Rusbridger arrested. Yes, I do; and here’s why.
It was always incredibly bad that he had exposed British intelligence agents to foreigners, willfully, having admitted that doing so would expose them. My prior blog below shows how he redacted all their names from the files he FedExed to ProPublica but then decided he couldn’t be arsed on the 25,000 files he sent unredacted to the NYT and Glenn Greenwald.

Mayor Norris Nautilust today put the leaders of the Burntfridge investigation to the sword, issuing an edict forbidding ‘any future invention of ridiculous sexual deviations that might ensnare harmless gardeners who employ child labour’. He added that the vitally important City traders in Mendacium justifiably feel they are above the law, but only a pervert would want to stick his cock in a poppy, and as there are no perverts at all anywhere in Mendacium, it was only right to ban the spreading of false rumours.
Late flash: Mayor Nautilust is to sue the German Government for bomb damage to Grade I & II listed Mendacium buildings relating to the period 1940-41, only seven of which once belonged to his family.

Palestinian businessmen planning to invest in the West Bank economy have once again been reminded of the challenges facing anyone who wants to do business with the Palestinian Authority.
One of the businessmen, Mohamed Al Sabawi, a Canadian investor of Palestinian origin, was this week arrested by Palestinian Authority policemen in Ramallah after publicly criticizing Mahmoud Abbas.
Al Sabawi, 68, is Director-General of the Ahlia Insurance Group, a firm that employs hundreds of Palestinians in the West Bank. His arrest is seen as part of a campaign by the Palestinian Authority to intimidate and extort money from prominent and wealthy businessmen who seek to help strengthen the Palestinian economy.
Palestinian Authority policemen raided Al Sabawi\’s office and arrested him on suspicion that he had called on Palestinians to topple Abbas.
