This may seem very odd but this morning I received an email from Bashar al-Assad.
I just thought I should make this public in case anyone from the UN is reading.
In it President Assad said he had been thinking a lot about recent events and had realized that killing lots of people had been, and I use his heart felt words,
…a terrible error of judgement.
He went on to say that his father, Hafez al-Assad, dead these 12 years, was nevertheless going to step down and take full responsibility.
In addition he was going to appoint several new non-executive directors from Rentokill, G4S and others with plenty of rendition..sorry ‘peace keeping’ experience to conduct a root and branch review and draw up a voluntary code of conduct.
I can also add that there is already a strong rumour going round that Barclays’ Bob Diamond is advising the regime on the recruitment process and Goldman Sachs is providing financial backing for the plan in the form of morality swaps based on the Libor.
