Anglo Diss

The NY Post has an editorial about British PM Gordon Brown's bad month.

...It's been a tough month on his three-continent tour preparing for next week's G-20 economic summit in London.

At the first stop, one of French President Nicolas Sarkozy's aides mocked the partially blind Brown's difficulty eating French fondue.

Then his US visit produced several apparent diplomatic slights from the Obama administration, including White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs downgrading the historic US-UK "special relationship" to a "special partnership" and the White House's official gift turning out to be a boxed set of DVDs.

And, of course the Lulu "white people with blue eyes" incident:

[Lulu] Da Silva ranted on, "Since I am not acquainted with a single black banker, I can only say that this part of humanity that is the major victim of the world crisis, these people should pay for the crisis? I cannot accept that."

In point of fact, there are a fair number of black bankers in Britain (and in America, too). If there are none in Brazil, that would seem to reflect more poorly on da Silva than on Brown, no?

Actually, da Silva is a socialist nutcase reminiscent of Hugo Chavez. Nobody should be surprised by such inflammatory nonsense, and he rarely disappoints.
