Curly March 5, 2009 at 9:23 pm Oh Goody! (Bugger, put my foot in it again.) Brian March 5, 2009 at 10:14 pm So it’s “Sir” Edward Kennedy, knighted for services to giving Gordon Brown a tiny bit of favourable publicity. Makes Blair look honest and principled, doesn’t it? JuliaM March 6, 2009 at 6:33 am Well, not sure anything does that, actually… dearieme March 6, 2009 at 1:24 pm God, they’ll give a knighthood to the Chappaqua Dick next.

Justin March 7, 2009 at 12:39 pm Presumably Tim this is all fair game while Kennedy is merely dying. I take it you won’t be doing anything as ‘vile‘ as ‘pissing in the grave before they’ve even put the body in it’ when he’s actually dead. Or encouraging your readers to. Tim adds: Quite. That gap between death and burial is the one where we observe nil nisi and all that. While he’s alive I can continue to excoriate him and when he’s safely buried I can as well.
