The World Turned Upside Down
So Ted Kennedy has gone to meet his maker, so why are the BBC lauding his 'achievements ' . He comes from the loins of Joe Kennedy Snr US Ambassador to Great Britain, who wrote us off in 1940. Until two jets slammed into the twin towers he gave aid and comfort to this country's enemies.
His driving skills were non too great either. His explanation of what happened was pretty thin as well, but it helps to be stinking rich and have political clout.
So why Gordon Brown gave a Knighthood to the old blowhard is beyond my ken, as well as the BBC's praise.
