There is a strange photograph in the Sunday Times today showing demonstrators in Iraq with a poster saying: "Happy Birthday Saddam." In English. I wonder how many posters we shall see at the Queen's jubilee in Arabic. What I would really like to see then is Her Majesty on the balcony of Buckingham Palace firing off a few rounds from her AK47. Should she hit any passing politicians - say, anyone thinking that the jubilee was about him - well, so be it.
