Newsnight yesterday broadcast an interview with the Taleban. Dr Liam Fox, Conservative spokesman for Defence was said to be "disgusted", remarking that it was a part of the "non-stop anti-war agenda from the BBC". Apparently it's the sort of thing that might have turned the entire country into a slavish theoracy, floored by the merciless logic of a stone age regime that doesn't believe in education. If anyone had been watching of course.

I was intrigued that Dr Fox could find time in his busy X-Factor schedule to get so worked up. Inevitably, it had the counterproductive effect of keeping a small story alive in the news, so I thought I'd look at his web page (www.drliamfox.com) for balance, from the non-stop, pro-war agenda. I was greeted with an HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden Internet Explorer message, telling me "You are not authorized to view this page. You might not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials you supplied." Clearly there is a sinister conspiracy at work to influence the hearts and minds of the British people.
